The Apple iPhone 6 Plus was released in September 2014 alongside with Apple iPhone 6
and looks just like a scaled up version of iPhone 6. The phablet status given to iPhone 6 Plus is owing to its plus size as its dimensions are 6.22 x 3.006 x 0.28 inches, thus needing both hands to use it.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus features a 5.5inches LED-backlit IPS LCD display, which is the biggest in the history of Apple smartphones
. The A8 chip provided in the phone is backed with a Dual-Core, 1400 MHz, Cyclone ARMv8, 64-bit processor offers huge performance improvements. The phone runs on iOS version 9 platform which is intuitive and offers amazing functions to its users while the 1 GB RAM provided proves sufficient to run the phone without any lag. A Non-removable 2915 mAh Li-PO battery
provided in the phone promises a stand-by time up to 384 h on 3G and talk time up to 24 h on 3G network. The phone comes in Space grey, Silver, Gold and Rose gold colors with 16GB and 64GB memory options
and feels hefty when held in hand. Weighing 172 grams, the phone is heavy and cannot be used for long duration of time. Just like iPhone 6 it has rounded corners making it easier to be held in hand, while the fingerprint sc0anner embedded in the home button is very responsive too. The 8-megapixel, 1/3” iSight camera received various upgrades, as now it offers an advanced dual tone LED flash and faster face detection and auto focus; plus it supports optical image stabilization, phase detection, and 1080p video recording at 60 frames per second. The 1.2 MP secondary camera captures amazing images and can be used for other functions, like Facetime and video recording.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus has the biggest display ever in the Apple’s smartphone segment, it has 4G support, sleek and strong unibody design made with industrial grade aluminium. The phone’s memory cannot be expanded as there is no MicroSD card slot provided, while its users have to use Apple’s Proprietary USB connector instead of the standard MicroUSB, which could be a problem if its user loses the connector and tries to use a different connector.
The phone finds competition from Samsung Galaxy S6
and Samsung Galaxy Note 4
while it also finds in-house competition from Apple iPhone 5S
and iphone 6S Plus
. All the brand savvy Apple loyalists would buy this phablet anyhow, but if a user compares it with Samsung’s S6 then it lags in camera and RAM, but then again Megapixels don’t matter as the images produced by iPhone 6 Plus are at par with images captured with S6. When compared with the in-house competition, it solely depends on an individual’s personal choice, as the features are almost identical with the only difference in size.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is the best smartphone present in the market for people who are searching for a high-end flagship phone with a huge display. The phone offers a host of features like portable Wi-Fi hotspot, powerful camera and an accurate voice assistant SIRI, thus qualifying as the most eligible phablet present in the market.
