Well, it’s been quite some time that iPhone 6 has been launched. Being one of the most popular iPhones ever, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are all set to receive the iOS 10 update. But, the surprising thing is, even after almost two years of its launch, the iPhone 6 is showing pretty great sales numbers, compared to other smartphones.
So, the question arises, what’s with iPhone 6? While the phone is still pretty popular, is it worth the pocket pinch? Considering the rumors that iPhone 7 is entering the market this September, is it wise to invest on the iPhone 6?
This review attempts to find the answers to these questions here. Let’s consider the most important aspects of the iPhone 6.
The design is the first thing that you consider while holding a new phone in your hand. The essential consideration here is how the device feels in your hand. Here, undoubtedly Apple has surpassed expectations. The iPhone 6 is so far the sleekest offering by the technology giant. With 6.9 mm size, the iPhone 6 features a metal back and smooth edges. This design is a refreshing change from the earlier iPhone models.
Performance-wise the iPhone 6 is not much different than the earlier iPhones, except for a better battery life. Today when there are many smartphones that can last a full day without demanding to get charged, it was crucial for Apple to work on the battery life of iPhone 6. The company stood up to this challenge for sure. The iPhone 6 offers a much a longer battery life than iPhone 5.
Display and Resolution
While the iPhone 6 offers a delightfully large display, the screen resolution stays much lower than its competitors. Why Apple has not worked on increasing the screen resolution yet, has long been a debatable matter among industry watchers.
The iPhone 6 was launched with a price tag of $649 for the 16 GB model in 2014. Today the price has dropped to $549 for the same one. Although it might look like a significant drop, in reality, iPhone 6 still remains the most expensive smartphone in its category. Here, the question is whether the pocket pinch is at all justifiable with iPhone SE offering almost all the same features with a slightly smaller screen size at $150.
So, what’s with iPhone 6?
There is no doubt that iPhone 6 is till date the best offering of Apple in this category. But, if you are planning to buy an iPhone 6, it may not be the wisest decision. While the design and performance of the phone are above question, the price tag is still pretty high. And as ‘rumor has it’, iPhone 7 is about to make its debut this September, you may want to go for the newer version at slightly higher price.
In case you do not mind the pocket pinch, go ahead by all means. With iPhone 6 about to get the iOS 10 update, it can be safely said, that the iPhone 6 is not to be ruled out from the market yet!
