Apple iPhone 6 Plus is a brilliantly designed iOS phone released back in 2014, which counts with a high speed 1400 megahertz Dual-Core processor, a huge 5.5 inches multi touch capacitive screen, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera.

The iPhone 6 Plus is equipped with a Apple A8 system chip, packing a great 1.4 GHz Dual-Core 64-bit processor and only 1 GB of RAM which is a little disappointing for a cellphone this good. Graphic rendering usually uses lots of CPU cycles, so it also also has a PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit ticking at 450 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. A key feature of the iPhone 6 Plus is its 64 GB large internal storage and although it doesn't have an SD extension slot, it is still enough to install lots of apps, games, photos and videos without worrying about running out of space at all.

About its construction materials, this phone is created with Aluminium, which gives it a top level feel. This cellphone just has 6.22 inches long and 3.06" wide, but it is still able to fit a a 5.5 inches display. This cellphone is very slim and practical, with a thickness of just 0.28". Apple made this phoneavailable only in three colors, black, gray and gold. Apple made a very nice job making this phone weight only 6.07 oz.

This phone is equipped with a spectacular 5.5-inches display with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels taking part of the display. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a great 500 candela/m2 brightness and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. Its back camera lens has a maximum 2.2 aperture so it can capture clear photographs even in poor lighting situations. It is capable of filming videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 240 frames per second (8 times slower than regular videos). In addition, the camera counts with lots of amazing characteristics like flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, optical image stabilization, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The iPhone 6 Plus offers WiFi connection (which can be shared with other devices acting as a wireless modem), 4G LTE high performance data connection or the fastest 3G internet connection, over HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services and it can work with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This cellphone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth phones, computers and accessories), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone comes with a huge 2915 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, which isn't very promising for a cellphone like this. This cellphone has a reported 384 hours stand by time and a 24 hours talk time. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose its charge, although with this big battery you will probably discard this device before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone is a very good offer considering it's an incredible phone and it just costs 509 dollars. No matter if you you love taking photographs, want a social device, want a work phone or are looking for a gaming phone, you will definitely be very satisfied with this phone. This phone sells with Lightning to USB Cable, Documentation, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic and USB Power Adapter.
