A1586 Apple iPhone 6 (A1586) Review & Specs

Apple iPhone 6 is a wonderful phone released back in the year 2014, counting with a 4.7″ multi-touch capacitive screen, an extremely powerful 64 bit Dual-Core processor ticking at 1.4 GHz, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. That’s all? Not at all, it’s only the starting point of a detailed review.

The iPhone 6 is just 0.27 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest phones nowadays. This cellphone is a compact device, given that it has a 4.7 inches screen and it has just 5.44″ long and 2.64″ wide. This phone feels much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone of this size. Talking about its design, the iPhone 6 is majorly created with Aluminium, Steel and Glass, which gives it a top level finish. This phone is sold in 2 different colors, gray and gold.

Apple packed this device with an absolutely amazing 4.7″ display, and a 1334 x 750 resolution, providing this phone with a perfect image quality. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 500 candela/m2 and is multi-touch enabled.

Apple decided to sell this phone with a high speed 64-bits Dual-Core processor running at 1.4 GHz, bundled in the Apple A8 system chip and only 1 GB of RAM which is a little poor comparing with its powerful CPU. To help with graphic rendering, this phone also has a PowerVR GX6450 graphics processing unit working at 450 megahertz. This cellphone counts with a 128 GB impressive internal storage memory and even though it doesn’t include an external memory slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications without even thinking about filling the phone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back camera and a 1.2 megapixels front side camera. this cellphone’s back camera has an aperture of F2.2 so it can shoot very nice pictures even in poor lighting environments. It is capable of filming 1920×1080 Full HD videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in (HD) (1280×720) up to 240 fps (8 times slower than normal videos). The camera also includes a high number of useful features: auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, HDR mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

The iPhone 6 comes with a medium 1810 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that can keep this phone running for many hours, but you may need to charge it even after moderate use. This device has an aproximate talk time of 14 hs and a stand by time of 250 hs. An important issue to take into consideration is that the Apple iPhone 6’s battery is not replaceable so you can’t change it when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, having to change the whole cellphone.

This cellphone offers Wi-Fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance internet connection or 3G fast connection type, supported by HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPhone 6 works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers and it can connect using both CDMA and GSM carriers.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint Identification, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

If you want it mainly for social networks and internet browsing, love photography, want a cellphone for work or want it to play games, this cellphone is definitely very appropiate . This phone is packed with USB Power Adapter, Lightning to USB Cable, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic and Documentation.
