Apple iPhone 6 Review

128 GB (A1549, A1522)     See other variants reviews Score: 8.67/10

Apple iPhone 6 is an impressive iOS device released a couple years ago, in 2014, with an extremely powerful 1.4 gigahertz Dual-Core 64-bit CPU, a 4.7-inches capacitive display, and 2 cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 1.2 megapixels front facing camera.

This cellphone just has 5.44 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 4.7" display. This phone has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.27". Apple offers this cellphone in 2 different color options: gray and gold. This phone feels much lighter than what one would think about a phone like this. Talking about its construction quality, the iPhone 6 is majorly built with Aluminium, Steel and Glass, which gives it a premium design and a better resistance.

Apple decided to power this phone with a high performance 64-bits Dual-Core processing unit clocking at 1400 MHz, bundled in an Apple A8 chip with only 1 GB RAM memory which is a little disappointing for such a good device. To help with graphic rendering, the iPhone 6 also has a 450 MHz PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit. An excellent aspect of the iPhone 6 is its huge 128 GB internal storage and though it doesn't have an SD memory card expansion slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone is equipped with an astonishing 1334 x 750 4.7" display, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a powerful 500 candela/m2 brightness and can detect multi touch gestures.

The iPhone 6 offers wifi connection (and it can share it with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed connection type or the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers and it can work with both CDMA and GSM.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. Its back-facing camera has a 2.2 aperture so it can take very nice photographs even in poorly lit environments. It is also able to capture videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 240 frames per second. Additionally, the camera includes multiple great features like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, HDR mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

The iPhone 6 packs a medium capacity 1810 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, which is quite poor for a demanding phone like this. Apple reports a stand by time of 250 hours and a talk time of 14 hours for this phone. An important issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose capacity, making it necessary to change the whole device.

The iPhone 6 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The iPhone 6 is a real bargain considering it's an amazing cellphone and it just costs $ 425. No matter if you are looking for a cellphone for playing games, will use it mostly for internet broswing and social networks, love photography or will use it for work, you will definitely be very satisfied with it. This cellphone comes with USB Power Adapter, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, Lightning to USB Cable and Documentation.
