Apple iPhone 6 is a high-end cellphone released back in 2014, with a medium 4.7 inches screen, a high-tech 64-bit Dual-Core CPU running at 1.4 GHz, and 2 cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this phone's pros when we get into more details.

The iPhone 6 is equipped with a very fast 1.4 gigahertz Dual-Core 64-bit processing unit, packed into the Apple A8 chip with only 1 GB RAM which is a bit disappointing for such a good device. Graphic intensive games and applications usually consume a lot of processor time, so it uses an additional PowerVR GX6450 graphics processing unit running at 450 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. A great point of this phone is the 64 GB big internal memory and even though it doesn't come with an external memory card slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without thinking about filling it.

This phone just has 5.44" long and 2.64 inches wide, but it manages to hold a 4.7 inches screen. Being just 0.27" thick,this cellphone is incredibly slim and comfortable. Regarding its body design materials, this device is mostly created with Aluminium, Steel and Glass, which gives it a premium design and a better resistance. Apple did a very good job making this cellphone weight just 4.55 oz. This device is available in two different color options, gray and gold.

This cellphone features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. Its back-facing camera lens has a maximum 2.2 aperture so it can take great pictures even in low light environments. This cellphone also shoots videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 240 fps (8 times slower ). This camera also includes lots of cool features: flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This device is equipped with an astonishing 1334 x 750 4.7-inches display, which makes everything look absolutely great. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with an incredible 500 candela/m2 brightness and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This cellphone counts with wifi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance internet connection or the fastest 3G data connection, 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 works with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This cellphone packs a 1810 mAh mid capacity Li-Ion non-replaceable battery providing this phone with a below average battery duration. Apple reports a 14 hours talk time and a 250 hs stand by time for this phone. A big issue to evaluate is that the Apple iPhone 6's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose its charge, leaving no choice but to buy a new phone.

This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other phones and accessories), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Apple iPhone 6 costs just 345 dollars, incredibly low comparing with similar cellphones. If you will use it for work, will use it as a social device, want it to take many pictures or will use this phone for gaming, you will definitely be very happy with this phone. When buying this cellphone you also get Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, USB Power Adapter, Lightning to USB Cable and Documentation.
