Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Picking your next smartphone is not a simple decision that should be taken lightly. In today's techno-centric world, your smartphone is an extension of your body. You use it from the moment you wake until the end of the day when your head hits the pillow. One option worth considering is the iPhone 6 Plus. The 6 Plus is a larger version of the iPhone 6, and the biggest difference is in the display. While the iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch display and a resolution of 1334 by 750 pixels, the iPhone 6 Plus features a larger 5.5-inch display and a 1920 by 1080 display, which results in a pixel density of 401 ppi, allowing for a truly HD experience.
The 6 Plus at a Glance
The 6 Plus weighs a little over six ounces and is 6.22 inches tall. Despite the large screen, the phone remains quite thin, measuring only 0.28 inches in thickness. The phone has three storage options that vary largely in capacity: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. Users who intend on downloading a great deal of media will want to pursue the 128GB option, as it is much larger than the other options, allowing users to keep all their favorites songs and many videos on their smartphone without the need of external storage cards. The iPhone 6 Plus comes in three different colors: silver, gold, and space gray. The 6 Plus is also no slouch under the hood, offering an A8 chip with 64-bit architecture and a M8 motion coprocessor.
The iPhone 6 Plus was designed to impress, and offers a slew of features with that aim in mind. One of the selling points of this phone is the two cameras, allowing for sharp HD photos and HD video. Both the front-facing and the rear-facing cameras have a wide aperture of f/2.2, allowing for photos with great depth-of-field, and the front-facing camera has a 1.2-megapixel sensor while the rear-facing camera has an 8-megapixel sensor. While both cameras offer HD video recording, the rear-facing camera offers 1080p recording, while the front-facing camera offers 720p recording. In typical Apple fashion, the phone comes loaded with a host of useful apps to accomplish a multitude of goals. The phone also comes packed with sensors, including a three-axis gyroscope, barometer, accelerometer, and even a fingerprint scanner.
The powerful iPhone 8 series also includes a “Plus” featured phone, meaning the same great style and experience a 6 Plus would give with all the added benefits of a brand new iPhone 8. The energy-saving OLED screen on the new series of iPhones means an extended battery life, and the faster processor would bring a much speedier user experience than the 6 or any other series. Power up the new iPhone 8 on the go with wireless charging, which alleviates cords and cables.
With two storage sizes available, 64GB and 256GB, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pack a heavy punch with a powerful camera, Augmented Reality option, and the clearest, most brilliant display you've ever seen. Go a step above and beyond the 8 and check out the iPhone X, which measures in at a massive 5.8 inches for a true phablet experience. The glossy display brings colors to life with a Super Retina screen, a durable design, and true-to-life colors. You can also enjoy the upgraded facial recognition feature of the iPhone X, which uses your own facial features to unlock your phone the way the fingerprint scanner did in the past.
Should you trade up to the newest additions to the Apple smartphone family? The choice is yours, but the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X certainly are worthy contenders.
