iPhone 6 Plus Deals
The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus is Apple’s latest device that comes with a few other perks like improved battery life and better camera performance. The panel has seen a vast improvement in contrast ratio department, skyrocketing to 1300:1 on the iPhone 6 Plus, which compares nicely with 1400:1 and 800:1 on the iPhone 6 and 5s respectively.
The iPhone 6 plus contains a brand new “desktop-class” 64-bit A8 chip, which is 25 percent faster than the A7 seen in the iPhone 5s and 1GB of RAM . It also has support for faster LTE, Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling (provided your carrier supports it). Apple has chosen to get rid of the 32GB capacity option and go with 16, 64 and 128 GB variants.
It comes in a slim, aluminum package of no more than 7.1 mm thick weighing 172 grams. That compares with 6.9 mm/129 grams for an iPhone 6 and 7.6 mm/112 grams for and iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6 Plus comes with a fingerprint scanner and motion co-processor, capable of tracking movement data. It also has a smorgasbord of sensors including a brand new barometer for detecting air pressure, which measures changes in altitude.
It’s also equipped with a new 8 megapixel iSight camera with improved focusing mechanisms and optical image stabilization that compensates for sudden movement. The true-tone flash is back from the iPhone 5s, and video recording gets an upgrade in the form of cinematic stabilization and slow-motion video at 240 frames-per-second.
The camera delivers 8 megapixel images shot through a maximum aperture of f/2.2 with the dual-LED flash from the iPhone 5s in place to balance skin tones. The iPhone 6 Plus has the added bonus of optical image stabilization, which in theory should result in less blurry shots. With a full-HD resolution of 1080p, it means you can see every detail in the video you are shooting, and 5.5 inches of glass to look at does wonders for your photography.
There’s no denying that the 6 Plus is a great phone, and more to the point a great iPhone. After years of incremental updates it feels like Apple has really tried to refresh the range with hardware and software changes that consumers have requested for years.
The device comes with iOS 8 out of the box. The iOS is mature operating system that simple to use, of high security, well-equipped and comes pre-installed with a selection of premium Apple apps (which you can remove). One can also change your stock iOS keyboard. If one buys a 16 GB iPhone 6 Plus, one will have to download these (free) from the App Store instead.
The iOS 8 steps into Android territory with user-replaceable keyboards and widgets in Notification Centre. It’s faster on the iPhone 6 Plus with smooth performance even in intensive-apps.
