Apple set the ignition to how modern smartphones operate and how we use these mobile devices everyday with the iPhone. After the release of the iPhone 6, it's clear that Apple is not only capable of nailing the execution of approaching their successful, but aging series of cell phones, from a new angle, but also set the standard for other competitors to follow.
Bigger and better than the iPhone 5s and those who came before it, the iPhone 6 strikes a perfect balance between solid performance, a stylish design, and hardware improvements all on a larger, 5.5" device.
Speaking of the iPhone 6's larger size, let's dive into the design of the device and why it'll feel so good in your hand.
Apple's usual attention to detail is ever-present throughout the iPhone 6. The aluminum chassis looks sleek and is made of high-quality material, with plastic segmenting the body at each side for uninterrupted mobile and wireless reception.
The curvier, rounded body is a departure from the iPhone 5 and makes the device overall easier to hold and reduces slippage. While larger than its predecessors, veteran iPhone users won't see much of a difference. However, the iPhone 6 is slightly thinner and lighter than the iPhone 5 and has a larger, 4.7" screen.
To be clear, the iPhone 6 won't be as powerful or as fast as it's newer siblings, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. However, this smartphone can still keep up and provide a smooth, seamless experience while launching apps, writing messages, making calls, surfing the web, and gaming.
Updated to the latest iOS version (And expected to continue seeing updates for 2 more years), the iPhone 6 will see regular software improvements, updates, and bug fixes while giving you access to the latest apps and tools.
Lastly, the 8-megapixel camera is arguably the standout feature of the iPhone 6, and one of the major reasons you should consider purchasing it. Smartphones under similar price points and with similar specs may have a higher megapixel camera, but the iPhone 6 stands above the rest with a major overhaul in how the camera operates and new system functionality.
With Apple-titled "Focus Pixels," you can move your phone around and it will never appear to be focusing, yet everything will always appear crisp and ready. The iPhone 6 is one of the fastest phones on the market for snapping a photo--now in even higher resolution.
The iPhone 6 combines majorly improved software and hardware on a larger screen with a very affordable price.
