Apple iPhone 6 Smartphone Review

 

Tricky refresh. Every year, the Californians present a new iPhone. The latest version has a nice design overhaul and the display is now 0.7 inches larger. The performance meets Apple's claim and is fast. However, the impression is affected by iOS 8,...

Excellent build quality, Great performance, Decent camera, Very good voice quality, Great display, Decent battery runtimes, Good headphones

NFC can only be used for Apple Pay, Micro stutters, Flash overexposes pictures, Storage cannot be expanded, No LTE Cat. 6, Power adaptor to weak, Issues with some car hands-free solutions

The iPhone 6 is a really great smartphone. The new design is very convenient and the manufacturer uses high-quality materials. The build quality is on an excellent level and the performance is first-class as well. Both HSPA+ and LTE support a large...

iPhone 6 Review

 

Apple caved into popular demand this year. Whereas its competitors (Android and Windows Phone) have long gone down the bigger display path, Apple's been reluctant to go beyond 4-inch displays.

Apple iPhone 6 (Unlocked)

 

The Apple iPhone 6 is the right iPhone at the right size, and one of the few unlocked phones that can be used on any of the four major U.S. carriers.

Universal carrier compatibility in the United States. Best third-party apps of any mobile OS. Excellent low-light camera performance. Fast Wi-Fi.

Phone calling performance is just okay.

None of our other top unlocked phones are the iPhone's hand-friendly, 2.64-inch-wide size. And none of these phones have a camera as good as the iPhone's. But the real reason to spring for an unlocked iPhone 6 isn't hardware, but software and support....

Apple iPhone 6 ( 128GB, gold)

 

When choosing between the 6 and 6 Plus, in the end, it's a matter of personal preference. I know several people who love the iPhone 6 Plus, with its larger screen size and better battery life. But the iPhone 6 feels best in my hand. It's thin, elegant,...

The iPhone 6 delivers a spacious, crisp 4.7-inch screen, improved wireless speeds, better camera autofocus, and bumped-up storage capacities to 128GB at the top end. iOS remains a top-notch mobile operating system with an excellent ecosystem of apps,...

Battery life isn't much better than it is on last year's iPhone 5S. And there's wasted space: an even larger screen could have been squeezed into the same housing.

The iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way except its average battery life: it's thin, fast, and features the excellent iOS operating system. It was the best overall phone introduced in 2014.

iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Alpha vs. Xperia Z3 Compact: Three kings

 

We're looking for the best phone with a sub-5" screen. At a time when the best features seem to only come with the largest display, there's a strange, almost rebellious feel to it. No need to tell you, we're enjoying it. The Apple iPhone 6, Samsung...

It's impossible to tally up a final score for this but that was never the point - as usual, the point is to help different users pick out the phone that's right for them. The super mini playground is not as empty as it once was and these three phones...

Apple iPhone 6 (16GB) review: Bigger, faster, better

 

The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and iOS 8 offer enough new functionality to entice existing iPhone owners to invest in an upgrade, and there's plenty to attract converts to the iPhone ecosystem too.

Elegant slimline chassis with 4.7-inch screen ; Solid build quality ; Performance boost over iPhone 5s ; Fast autofocus on iSight camera ; Good new features in iOS 8

Battery life may not be enough for power users ; No optical image stabilisation on iSight camera ; No NFC-enabled Apple Pay support outside the US

The iPhone 6 Review

 

With every launch of the iPhone, Apple seems to have everything to lose and not much to gain. Apple's iPhone line accounts for the majority of profits in the smartphone space, and as the smartphone market marches towards maturity it seems inevitable...

Overall, the iPhone 6 is a significant step up from the iPhone 5s. One of the first areas where we see noteworthy changes is in the industrial design of the phone. Instead of the hard edges that we saw with the iPhone 5 design, the sides of the phone...
