Apple iPhone 6 Plus Specifications and Review

Apple fans ware not expecting any good news from Apple about getting into the race of big screens, as Apple was among the initial critics of this new product category. Though success of bigger screens finally dragged Apple in the line and now there is the 5.5-inch iPhone Plus which scored its position in the phablet market with its release.

After two year of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which came with the same 5.5-inch , Apple launched its new flagship smartphone, iPhone 6 Plus along with the 4.7-inches iPhone 6. With its previous five generation smartphones it had dealt with 3.5-inch and 4-inch displays. With this increment in its display, Apple eventually have entered into the Phablet market already dominated by mostly Samsung and few others. It has proved to be the bigger competitor for the bigger phones.

Both of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have almost the same specs while differing in their screen size. The iPhone 6 Plus comes with a full HD display and also a bigger battery in its bigger body to support its huge display. It supports the upgraded A8 64-bit processors with M8 motion coprocessors to assist many of its interesting sensors while it has 1GB memory. It has a rare camera of 8MP with optical image stabilization feature.

Apple provides the features and hardware beyond the cost and the end users have what they want but not on the price they may wish. Following the high prices of Apple smartphones, the iPhone 6 Plus is one of the most expensive smartphones available in the market. The contract-free iPhone 6 Plus in 16GB is tagged with the starting price of $749 while with the storage level of 32GB and next at 64GB its prices would lead to $849.

Lacking micro-SD the customers of Apple have been disappointed on many occasions but now it has the answer with its newly introduced 128GB model at the highest cost being $949. These prices are putting the Apple iPhone 6 plus on the top of the other phablets from the rivals including the LG G3, Nokia Lumia 1520 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

With its new iOS 8 the new iPhone 6 Plus has improved the already loved iOS features along with many new features like healthcare which are made possible with its upgraded coprocessors, and improved sensors. It’s no doubt a powerful phone in both its prices and features.
