‘[rad-hl]Iphone 6 plus[/rad-hl]’
When Tim Cook took over at the helm of Apple, many questioned whether he had the same level of inventiveness of his predecessor Steve Jobs who had constantly kept Apple products at the top of every gadget lover’s wish list. The iPhone 6 and its bigger variation 6 Plus have proven to be the products which clear all doubts, and with good reason.
Since their announcements, the iPhone 6 and the 6 plus have taken over the topic of discussion in social media and in social gatherings all around the world. The iPhone 6 plus seems to have generated the bigger buzz of the two probably because it rather venomously corrects the number one criticism that detractors of Apple phones were always quick to point out: the small screen size.
The iPhone 6 plus makes you forget everything you ever knew about the iPhone family as it breaks many of its customs. The 5.5inch screen size is one no one saw coming especially since Steve Jobs himself had once famously said, ‘No one is going to buy a big phone’. Fast forward to 2014 and it is unmistakable that a large screen phone is a priority for most phone users. The Retina HD screen is also a welcome development where you can enjoy graphics which are 84 times faster than the original iPhone.

From its sheer size you can tell that the iPhone 6 + was inspired by the iPad. Infact it is being referred to as the first ever iPhablet in some quarters. The rounded corners and softer edges reminds one of an iPad and makes users heave a sigh of relief that the sharp edges which was evident in the iPhone 5s did not make its way to this new model. The 6 plus is slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 measuring in at 7.1mm and the body which is made from premium metal further helps give this new iPhone that commonplace distinguished look.
Operating System and Connectivity:
The iPhone 6 plus runs on the iOS 8 operating system and is powered by the Apple designed A8 chip. By this what you stand to gain is a chance to play games in a higher resolution than your favorite game console and a processor performance which is 50 times faster than the original iPhone. Screamer! In the aspect of connectivity the iPhone 6 plus is equipped with Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC and USB, making sure that the transfer of data would always be an extremely simple task.
Camera and Video:
If there ever were awards on Instagram (Instagrammy perhaps?) then those who purchase the iPhone 6 would be smiling home with all the awards. The 8 MP rear camera which is backed up with features such as optical image stabilization, dual LED flash, face/smile/blink detection and more is sure to provide you with picture perfect shots. Apple also boasts that they have redefined the world of phone video capturing as users would be able to do HD video recording with the aid of their celebrated iSight camera. The video camera is also backed up by exciting modes such as slo-mo mode and time-lapse mode.
We are accustomed to Apple surprising us with unprecedented phone features with each new model. Last time out we were treated to Touch ID technology where your fingerprint could be used as the password for unlocking your phone. This innovative feature is also present in the iPhone 6 plus but it is the revolutionary Apple Pay which is grabbing the headlines. Apple Pay (which is Visa, Mastercard and AMEX certified) helps make your shopping faster, easier and more secure by giving you the opportunity to pay for goods in stores through a simple and single touch on your phone.
The iPhone 6 plus is shatterproof which is enough for it to state its claim as the most durable phone ever. Predictive text input, iBooks pdf reader, TV-out, iCloud service and the brilliant Siri command are some of the extra features which makes the iPhone 6 plus look like its going to be the Floyd Mayweather of mobile phones.
