Expert Review

The Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus introduced two new screen sizes to the device’s lineup, a 4.7 inch smartphone and a 5.5 inch phablet. Though the company’s introduced a new phone, the 6 and 6 Plus are still devices that have a long life ahead of them. Though current-model iPhone models come in data capacities up to 128GB, the 6 and 6 Plus maxes out at 64GB, with a 16GB option also available.

The phones use the same 8 megapixel sensor that’s captured many of what are considered the best smartphone photos on photosharing sites around the internet. The camera can also shoot video up to 1080p. There phones have upped their resolution to 4K, but the fact is most TVs can’t take advantage of the higher resolution video.

The 6 Plus screen comes in at 1920x1080 pixels (at 401 dots per inch), and 1334x750 pixels for 4.7 inch iPhone 6 (at 326 pixels). Both phones, according Apple are "retina" displays, mean text and graphics are sharp. At their resolutions, the phones’ screens deliver more pixels per inch than print (which comes in at 300 dots per inch).

With LTE cellular networking and the ability to use VoLTE (or voice over LTE), the 6 and 6 Plus will be usable for the foreseeable future on most mobile phone networks. If you’re in the vicinity of a trusted WIFI router, the 6 and 6 Plus will be able to connect to the most advanced 802.11 protocols, including ac, to older b networks, and everything in between.

A year later after its introduction Apple’s A8 processor, which is the heart of both phones, is still extremely fast and can handle any apps that are thrown at it.The phone is very usable and stands up to normal use. Though early reports raised concerns that the aluminum body could be bent, it was later discovered that these were rare and extreme cases while the display uses the equivalent of Gorilla Glass. Apple also dropped the popular gold color, with the phone available only in silver and space grey. (Rose gold is only available for 6S and 6S Plus models.)

The combination of price and performance makes the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus one of the best buys in smartphones. However, we’re going with the iPhone 6 Plus as our device of choice because of the addition of an optical image stabilizer. The 6 does not feature OIS and it does make a very apparent difference in stills.Rating: 5/5
