Review: Apple iPhone 6 for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basic Extras Wrap-Up Comments  7  

The iPhone 6 is a very good smartphone. It may not match some competing models spec-for-spec, but it has closed the gap significantly.

The 4.7-inch screen is excellent and Apple fit it into a gorgeous piece of hardware that's thin, light, and comfortable to use. It will easily go with you anywhere and look good doing it. Build quality is as good as it gets. The iPhone 6 makes strides in battery life, though the 6 Plus offers at least an extra half-day. The iPhone 6's performance on Verizon's network was quite good. I am still disappointed with the quality of phone calls, but the iPhone 6 isn't necessarily alone in that respect.

Unlike the 6 Plus, the 6 can be used with one hand. If you're on the fence about the 6 or the 6 Plus, the two real differentiators are one-handed use and battery life. The 6 Plus has better battery life, but it harder to use, where the 6 is easy to use, but offers less battery life. It's a tough choice, no doubt.

iOS 8 is adept and I experienced speedy performance across the board on every app I tested. Further, the iPhone 6 has a fantastic camera and produces videos worthy of evening news broadcasts.

I think the iPhone 6 compares well to other flagships, but it definitely lags in some specs, such as screen size/resolution. Given the new powers built into iOS 8 and the overall quality of the iPhone 6, you can't go wrong with this handset.
