Apple iPhone 6 Plus is an impressive cellphone released back in the year 2014, packed with a big size 5.5 inches multi-touch display, a high performance 1.4 GHz Dual-Core 64 bits processing unit, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera.

This cellphone comes with a Apple A8 chip, backed up by an exceptional 64 bit Dual-Core processor clocking at 1.4 gigahertz and only 1 GB of RAM which is a bit low for a device this good. Graphic intensive games and apps often eats a lot of processor time, so it uses a PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit working at 450 MHz to help with that calculations. This cellphone comes with an interesting 16 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't have a slot for external memory cards, it is enough to install hundreds of games and applications, although it probably wouldn't be suitable if you are fan of the largest games available nowadays or taking tons of pictures and videos.

Apple is offering this cellphone in three colors: black, gray and gold. Talking about its materials, this phone is majorly made of Aluminium, giving this cellphone a high quality finish. The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is a compact phone, considering it has a 5.5" display and it's just 6.22" long and 3.06" wide. Being just 0.28" thick,this phone is extremely thin and practical. This cellphone is much lighter than what one would think about a phone this size.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. this device's back-facing camera lens has a maximum F2.2 aperture so it can take great pictures even in low-light conditions. It also captures videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow-motion videos up to 240 fps (8 times slower than normal videos). Additionally, this cellphone's camera also includes lots of interesting features: flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, optical image stabilization, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This phone has a spectacular 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5.5" display, making everything look perfect. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with an incredible 500 cd/m2 brightness and is multi-touch enabled.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus offers Wi-Fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a wireless router), LTE (4G) fast data connection or fast 3G data connection, supported by HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it works with both GSM and CDMA networks.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The iPhone 6 Plus uses a 2915 mAh big Li-Ion non-removable battery providing this phone an average battery duration. Apple informs a talk time of 24 hours and a stand by time of 384 hours for this cellphone. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to lose its charge, whereas with such a big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before that happens.

Apple is offering the iPhone 6 Plus for only 349 dollars, which is a great offer for a good cellphone like this. The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is definitely a good choice for you it doesn't matter whether you will use this phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks, love photography, want a gaming phone or are looking for a device for work. Apple also sells this cellphone with Lightning to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter, Documentation and Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic.
