The iPhone 6 was a Stellar phone, but since then it has been usurped by the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7 as well as the iPhone 8 on the horizon. In fact, it is now difficult to buy an iPhone 6 by hand, with Apple offering the excellent iPhone SE as its cheapest phone.
The tenth anniversary edition of the approaching iPhone also raises the question of whether it pays to buy the iPhone 6 for a long time. We’ll say that if you’re looking for a cheap phone (at least Apple standards), you’ll choose the iPhone SE, and it’s also worth seeing what Tim Cook and Co reveal in September. At least there should be price reductions for the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7.

Apple IPhone 6 Details
Let’s look at the first thing most people will ask themselves before deciding on the iPhone 6: How will it really feel on your hand?
This is a breakthrough for Apple, and it is a moment when it is admitted that the industrial and clear design of the last four iPhone models is a bit outdated and must improve the ergonomics to really compete.
Well, with the Apple iPhone 6 we see one of the best and most stylish phones on the market. It has a strong combination of metallic support (which feels exceptionally good and carries a great iPad Air design language) and the way the screen bends in the case, giving it a slight diamond feel.
The iPhone 6 seems to be the case, and with a thickness of 6.9mm it’s very nice to hold, though cell phones like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Moto Z have surpassed 6.8mm and the thickness of 5.1mm respectively , I still think phones that put more emphasis on ergonomics are a better option, but the HTC One M9 leans back and fits a bit better in the palm of your hand, but that’s obvious. This iPhone feels really good.
However, Apple has always preferred a flatter phone than the rest of the market, and placed on a desk is superb. It feels good in the hand, but as I said, others impress more when I’m hypercritical.
There is also the problem of large plastic strips running through the top and bottom of the unit. Since metal is a nightmare to penetrate the radio signal, it is clear that this will be compensated.
The user interface of the iPhone 6, despite its introduction on iOS 8 and later versions on iOS 9, iOS 10 and iOS 11 remains known to anyone who has used a smaller iPhone or iPad in recent years.With the iPhone 6 you even have another way to enlarge (or enlarge) the view to serve those who do not have the best view and do not want to squint on a large screen.
iOS 8 has also added some very smart user interface settings here and there, such as the ability to save contacts (with information such as company phone numbers) directly from the email application.Then there is the option “Accessibility”. If you press the Home button twice without pressing this button, the screen shifts down about two-fifths, so you can tap any item at the top of the screen. It’s a rather messy way of doing things, and despite everything I could do, I rarely remembered to activate it.Nevertheless, Apple at least shows that it is still a bit regrettable to be forced to bring a larger phone to the masses, and tries to alleviate the problem.
One of the most impressive features of iOS 8 was the ability to glide through the operating system to access applications and web pages. This is not a new feature for the average smartphone user: it has some elements of BB10 (in terms of moving to access new menus), and there are also more than a few consents to Android.But that’s not a bad thing in my head. As long as a method is not patented, the better you can add a feature to make the user smoother.This is not a fully useful system as it does not work as a complete backtracking key. To be perfect, I would have liked to see a slide on the first screen of an application or website as a way to get back to the home screen.
The resilience of the iPhone 6 promises to be significantly better than that of the iPhone 5S, as it is equipped with a 25% more durable battery and according to Apple literature, the A8 processor in the center of things is a much stronger engine, the 50% less energy consumed as the A7 iteration on the latest iPhone.
The good news is that the life of the battery on the iPhone 6 is much better than what happened before, provides a much more stable experience, even if you did not do much with the phone, that was one of my main problems. the iPhone 5S.There is an idea that what Apple offered with this device, according to the owners I talked to, was “pretty good”, but everyone wanted to have something done to improve it.
MP camera receives autofocus for phase detection
The iPhone 6 comes with the camera sensor the same size as the iPhone 5S and the same 8MP resolution that debuted on the Apple line the day with the iPhone 4S. However, the focus material has been improved and with the updated software providing slightly better results.
Apple has added what they call focus pixels for the sensor, which should make autofocus faster. This is the phase detection pixel technology that we have seen for some time in high-quality cameras and the same focusing technology that Samsung has released in the Galaxy S5 and LG in its G3, adding the help of infrared focusing).
The more powerful chipset and the new faster approach have enabled Apple to improve facial recognition by making it faster and more accurate. Automatic image stabilization on the Apple iPhone 6 is digital, but Apple promises to do enough to reduce the blur. The panoramas have increased their resolution and can now reach 43MP. The new Apple A8 chipset also speeds up the whole process, from the recording to HDR images to the start of the application, everything is a bit more agile.
Finally, the front camera is improved. Apple claims that it captures 81% more light, though we do not know how this is possible because it maintains the same aperture of F / 2.2 and captures a blast of 10 fps. The front camera also offers HDR video recording in addition to HDR photos.The user interface of the camera has been improved thanks to iOS 8. When you touch the focus, the phone can control the exposure with a cursor from top to bottom. In this way, you can intelligently add the exposure compensation according to the scene. You can also block focus and exposure, but it’s not new.
