The Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6 Review


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new iPhone 6 brought back the curves that once belonged to the iPhone 3GS. This new feature gives a comfortable feel to the hand with a more stylish feel when put on a desk. However there are many issues with the iPhone 6 including its camera lens that protrudes a bit which makes it tough when held by a person. The curves that are built in the phone make it difficult to grab as well.

Even though there is a comfortable feel to it but operating it may be a tough experience for sure. The design of the phone from the front looks highly attractive as well as its precision. However when your attention shifts to the curves of the phone, it comes short on expectations. With a two-year contract, it is likely that people will be using the phone for a very long time.

Many apps are also made especially for this phone and the development business is booming with the increase in the number of apps which can now be displayed on a single screen at the front of the phone. The diagonal of the screen is 4.7 inches which in turn provides a better interface for users. The pixels of the phone are larger than that of the iPhone 5S and developers are starting to work on resolutions of multiple screens as we speak.

The contrast of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) display has increased as well as the effect of viewing the screen from an angle. There is a similarity of the optical system in both the iPhone 6 and 5S however the company did much to improve on the speed of taking pictures as well as their quality. The phase detection pixels were highly promoted at the phone’s launch.

The focus pixels help in judging the distance one has from the object simultaneously speeding up the time that it previously took consumers to focus on an object. The audio of the phone is no doubt weak. Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) headphone socket is at the phone’s base which is highly different from other phones. This change can be tolerated but the location of the speaker is what strikes wonder. It is mono with poor placement.

Other handsets have forward facing speakers but Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has a poor location with a much quieter speaker. It may be hard to hear the sounds coming from a game which you play on your iPhone 6 as you might be covering the speaker. The thinness of the iphones causes many issues but the biggest one is that sometimes it slips out of a person’s grasp while putting into a pocket.

It needs extra care and the power intensive activities should be monitored as well. This new smartphone, even though needs care, is becoming quite popular in the market proven by the success of its first week sales. The iPhone 6 launches in other countries also had a lot of demand with a comparatively low supply.
