iPhone 6 is the Apple’s 8th iPhone and their best one yet. It is the most thinnest and lightest iPhone till date and Apple actually made a major design change since the iPhone 4. They ditched the chamfered edges and introduced the new curved (yet slippery) seamless design in attempt of a device that feels more uniform in your hand. For the first time, iPhones got bigger screens. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus houses a 4.7 and 5.5 inch screens respectively and Apple calls it Retina HD.
Of course, every new iPhone will be the best iPhone that is ever been out but this is really the biggest jump Apple ever made. iPhone 6 has lots of new features In this article we will discuss Top 5 Features of iPhone 6. Lets get started.
Top 5 Features of iPhone 6
5. Better Performance with more Storage options:
Spec wise, this new iPhone 6 is powered by the new A8 chip with a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor and PowerVR GX6450 quad-core graphics. It has 1GB of RAM. But don’t let the specs fool you. They might seem under rated than most of the Android smart phones but they perform equal or more against powerful Android smart phones. This is because Apple has optimized the software and hardware that they almost just become invisible, all you get is a powerful device that you love using. iPhone 6 maxes out 3D Mark Ice Storm Extreme which is pretty amazing.
With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple dropped the 32GB storage option and introduced 128GB at the price of 64GB iPhone 5S. This seems a great deal but not for the 16GB model, because it costs the same as before. Apple should have dropped 16GB instead of 32GB.
4. Better Camera:
Taking pictures or selflies, a common use of smart phones. The iPhone 6 is bundled up with Apple’s 8MP iSight camera with a large aperture of f/2.2. The 8MP may sound not enough but it takes very high quality pictures and with the dual LED (dual-tone) flash light which fires a mix of amber and white light to make indoor and low light pictures more realistic. The protruding camera is not cheap or going to scratch easily because it has sapphire lens and metal ring around it.
Improved Image Stabilization and wide open aperture allows you to take sharp low light photos without flash. Front facing camera is also improved and now does 10 burst shots per second, until you release the shutter. iPhone 6 can shoot 240fps slow motion video at 720p and 60fps at 1080p. With iOS 8, taking photos, retouching them and sharing with your friends is easier than ever. The only thing missing in iPhone 6 is Optical Image Stabilization but maybe we can see it in iPhone 6S.
3. Apple Pay:
Apple Pay is Apple’s system for paying for your things with your phone which claims to replace your wallet. With iOS 8.1 update, Apple rolled out Apple Pay and it worked like Apple products do – seamlessly! You set up Apple Pay by going to settings and scrolling down to Passbook and Apple Pay and then tapping on adding a new card. It will prompt you to use the card filed with iTunes or select a new card. You can scan the card or fill out information manually and then select the default card to use while paying with Apple Pay.
Paying with Apple Pay is simple. You go to a store (that accepts Apple Pay), get the thing you like and when you bring you iPhone near the terminal, default card will pop up, you can select any other card or pay with the default card. To conform your payment, you verify your identity using TouchID.
The elegantly designed iPhone 6 is the combination of keenly selected materials. It has a simple design. Edges are well-defined with no gaps and the elements are combined in such a manner that it’s just a single piece. Curves on the side wrap around to give you a more natural feel although this is a bit slippery device to hold but throwing on a case will solve that problem. The power or sleep/wake button is moved from top to the right side so that it is more reachable to the hand. Costumers will surely notice its thinness; it’s just 6.9mm thick. Apart from being thin, iPhone 6 is solidly built and it feels like a premium device. It really is a beautiful piece of hardware.
Even the former Android VP was impressed by Apple. He said, iPhone 6 is the most beautiful smart phone ever built.
1. Bigger Screen:
One of the biggest (and best) thing about the iPhone is the screen size. Apple finally listened to their costumers and put a bigger screen in their new iPhone. The iPhone 5S seemed pretty small as compared to some of android flagships like Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3 but the problem is solved with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. iPhone 5S with 4 inch screen (which I was happy with) is just too small and iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5 inch screen is way too big for me so I chose iPhone 6 to live with which easy to operate with one hand.
Some people might bug on the “750p” screen of the iPhone 6 but clearly thats not an issue and you are not going to notice any pixels unless you put the display under a microscope. The best thing about Apple’s displays are that they really care about the calibration of them. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus displays are calibrated to display sRGB content without boosting any saturation or gamut which results in more natural looking colors and skin tones. The resolution is same as iPhone 5S but the contrast ratio is much, much improved (from 800:1 to 1400:1). It also offers wider viewing angles and greater sunlight readability.
We covered just Top 5 Features of iPhone 6 from many more that Apple introduced. iPhone 6 is a great smart phone to choose from many available on the market like Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and the HTC One M8. However if you are a iOS lover and like the experience of it, than the iPhone 6 is the best way (till now) to enjoy iOS on an iPhone and it is going to get better with the next releases of iPhones. iPhone 6 64GB is a great deal and you can buy it unlocked, here.
