After a much hyped launch at a special event in Cupertino, Calif, Apple’s two new iPhones are finally unveiled: the iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
Ever since its advent in 2007 the iPhone has continuously improved every passing years, with higher density, bigger displays, faster Wi-Fi and cellular networking, better cameras, etc..
CEO Tim Cook in an effort to prove his authority has launched what he refer as the new generation and the best of iPhones, the iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. These i-device is something big Apple has offered after 4 years, making it rebound to the market buzz as it is the most anticipated device after the death of Steve Jobs.
With both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus available to pre-order, if you are confused deciding what to buy, we’ve got your back. Presenting some pros and cons of the both iPhones that you should consider before purchasing one.
1. Giant iPhone 6 Plus:
With a 6.22 x 3.06 x 0.28 inches dimension, unless you have been an owner of a phablet earlier, this phablet can be large and annoying. Those habitual of using more slender and smaller devices may find this a beast of a device. The iPhone 6 hardly will fit in a smaller handbags. The iPhone 6 Plus? Forget about it. The iconic round home button takes up larger area than the square one as featured in Samsung phones. To reach the far end of the screen you might end up using two hands.
2. Features function already on Android phones for ages:
Apple finally adapted the big screen concept which has been introduced in the Android devices since long. Even after including many of the features in their device, the devices still lacks many other good Android smartphones’ features, such as water resistance, wireless charging, and the lack of Cat 6 LTE Support.
3. Design and Display of iPhone6:
The iPhone 6′s 1334×750 resolution is a little bit disappointing, it is the same 326 PPI as the iPhone 5S but Apple is bound to have some specification gap between it and the iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6’s smooth profile is broken by the slightly protruding camera lens and an ugly pair of plastic lines running horizontally across the back and near the top and bottom edges. Due to the roundish rather than flat sides the device tends to be slippery at times.
4.Go for the 64 GB model:
The most disappointing drawback is the major difference between the 16GB and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 6. You better consider spending the extra $100 for 64GB. The later one will provide you with more than enough space, while the 16 GB will give hardly any space at all to play with, which will serve the ultimate goal of the company to make the customers buy the more expensive model.
5. Questionable Apple Pay security:
Due to the recent iCloud accounts theft and the issue not resolved yet the company has somewhere lost the trust, and therefore, the secure paying system claims is under suspicion.
6. The Enhanced Battery life:
The battery life is something that every iPhone user complains about. The iPhone 6 Plus has the biggest battery of all iPhones and can last upto 12 hours with fair amount of usage. The iPhone 6 boasts 50 hours of music listening and 14 hours of talk time.
Here is just a quick recap of all the specifications of the both devices.
A8 chip with 64-bit architecture, M8 motion coprocessor, 4.7-inch/5.5-inch 1334×750/1920×1080 Retina display, Bluetooth 4.0, 8-megapixel 1080p iSight camera with LED flash, 1.2-megapixel 720p FaceTime camera, dual-band Wi-Fi, LTE, Lightning Port. Includes Lightning-to-USB cable, USB charger, and Apple EarPods.
You get the advantage of backing up your data even from third-party apps with iCloud only with AppleCare+ warranty. Android will automatically back up your Google account data and photos (through Google+), and the apps list in your phone, but it doesn’t back up the data from third parties so easily.
With Apple you don’t need to worry about Malware.
The Plus has an advantage of optical image stabilization for photos and video. Beginning at $199 for a 16GB model, it is the first iPhone to skip 32GB entirely and jump right to 64GB for $299. There’s also a 128GB model for $399, all with a two-year contract . Both the devices are available on all major carriers: AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.Above all one should remember the very significant lines that Apple is a synonym of quality, and if you are looking for quality, you can find it in Apple. Plus the iPhones run iOS 8, a massive advantage over Android or anything .
