the new apple iphone 6: Perfect phone

 

Sep 22, 2014 by edenjade1

Carrier: Verizon Wireless

I've had the phone for 3 days now & I really like it. I love the size & the way I can make my text bigger when text messaging. I also like the keyboard where the keys are spaced just right, not too close together. I like the power button being on the side instead of at the top of the phone. I have small hands & this phone doesn't feel heavy when I'm text messaging a lot. The camera takes excellent photos, even better than my camera. There's just nothing that I don't like about this phone. I'm so proud to own it.

Small steps up

 

Sep 25, 2014 by walpoleauto

Pros:
Display is noticeably better than the Apple 5s

Camera quality is simply the best. Just because it is 8mp, the quality is simply amazing.

VoLTE gives Verizon customers the ability to talk and browse simultaneously.

Lesser specs than my Samsung Galaxy S5 but runs comparable programs quicker.

Selfie camera is much better than the Samsung Galaxy S5
Cons:
Battery - Especially if you turn on VoLTE you will get half the talk time. Times I clocked are about 15% better than the Iphone 5s

Screen Size - (only for some) I enjoy the larger screen, but a lot of my friends who played with it didn't like the new size as they were comfortable with the old. Keep in mind the base model 6 is bigger than the 5s.

Rear camera lens - This can be annoying for some as Apple has made recent phones with flush cameras, not anymore. The lens sticks out, so if you do not have a case and place the phone on a desk, the camera lens will be where all of the weight goes and the phone will not be flush.

Fragile feeling - This phone feels more fragile than its predecessors.

Overall, I ran tests side by side with an Apple 5s and a Samsung Galaxy S5 running similar programs and benchmarks. Samsung makes an amazing product with top notch specs, but I can tell you that with Apple it's not about the specs.

Playing games aside the 5s, I didn't notice much of a difference in processing power. The screen looked much nicer on the 6, and the camera shot better focused pictures.

In the benchmark tests, the 5s and the 6 were about 15-20% different in results at peak loads, but for most things results were very close.

Small upgrades but very minimal. I feel like Apple rushed this one out the door to please the shareholders. I did not get the same joy as when I upgraded from a Iphone 4s to the 5 and that was well worth it.
If you have a 5s, I would recommend you hold off until the 6s comes out to blow your $

The best iPhone ever built!

 

Oct 22, 2014 by macking301

Carrier: AT&T

Hello:

I have had my new iPhone 6 for about a month. I had the iPhone 5s before which was terrific but the larger (4" vs. 4.7") is both sharper and has much better contrast. It's the best screen quality I have ever seen!

While the iPhone 6 is slightly larger than the older 5s, its easier to hold that the more boxed shaped 5s.

The iPhone 6 has the following Pro's:

iOS 8.1 is amazing and much faster and improved.
Screen quality is the very best on a smartphone this size.
The A8 chip is noticeably faster-very fast.
The Camera is noticeably better than any on a smartphone by any manufacturer.
Very thin and light but feels strong-amazing and not fragile! Titanium and aluminum build help!
Perfect phone reception and FaceTime video/audio is outstanding.
Great battery strength improved over the 5s

The iPhone 6 has these Cons:

None

My final conclusion is other than the larger iPhone 6 plus this iPhone 6 is the best iPhone ever made! The professional reviews bare this out and I am thrilled with the new iPhone 6 and am very happy I made the switch to the 6. You will love it also! WOW!!
