Apple iPhone 6 Plus 

Released September, 2014
  • iOS 10
  • 3.5G
  • 5.5"
  • Dual core 1.4 GHz
Most of the traditional connectivity features continue to be in tow here with the iPhone 6 Plus, such as aGPS with Glonass and Bluetooth 4.0 LE, but Apple has outfitted its beauty with a new 802.11 ac connection, which offers up to 3x faster Wi-Fi speeds than 802.11n. Another new addition to the family is NFC, a feature that’s been something we’ve all longed for.

Reviews Word on the street for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus


9.0
We’ll vouch that the iPhone 6 Plus records some amazing looking 1080p videos that are filled with plenty of sharp details, lively colors, and moderate exposure adjustment.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Notable for its immense 5.5-inch Retina Display, which is based on IPS LCD technology, the more pressing matter here is that the iPhone 6 Plus’ screen earns the prestigious mark for being the highest-resolution panel to ever grace an iPhone.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
It’s sharp, there’s no denying that, but it’s still a step behind quadHD displays on paper.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
What happens next is that the interface collapses, so that everything is brought closer down to the bottom portion of the display – thus, making it easier to operate.

Camera

Even though its iSight camera doesn’t increase in count, a decent 8-megapixel sensor with a two-toned dual-LED flash, Apple introduces a new technology called “Focus Pixel,” which we’ll expand more on later in the camera section of the review.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
Stunning photos are in abundance here with the camera, so it’s a perfect companion for sharing the memories.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
Naturally, we’re not too concerned that it’s not trying to win the megapixel race, like how many of its rivals feature 13-megapixel and up sensors.

Video

Last year brought on the introduction of 120 FPS slow-motion capture at 720p, but the iPhone 6 Plus’ upgraded hardware now permits it to capture those same 720p videos at an astonishing 240 FPS.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
While nothing new to see on a smartphone, this feature is used for shooting videos that "condense" a long period of time into a much shorter video.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
If we look down the line and compare the two iPhones, the 6 Plus sees an advantage with its larger & higher resolution display, longer battery life, ideal video watching experience, and its more proper layout in landscape with certain apps – and that’s all folks!
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)

Apps

The music player remains unchanged from last year’s offering with iOS 7, so the visuals and functions are identical.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
We’ll talk more about the differences with the layouts of the various apps in the sections further below.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
It even works on third party apps as well!
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)

Battery

Well, our reservations are confirmed after running our benchmark test, as the iPhone 6 Plus puts up a mark of 6 hours, 32 minutes, which is an hour longer than the iPhone 6, but still far from the 7.5 hours of juice of the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the over 8 hours of the Sony Xperia Z2.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
Its battery life is longer than the iPhone 6, but it’s underwhelming when pitted against some other notable flagship phones.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2014)
Not surprisingly, it’s able to offer us a longer battery life – where it’s more than ample for an entire day of normal usage.
