The iPhone 6 got the 4.7-inch screen that is smaller than iPhone 6 Plus but bigger than iPhone 5. The major talking point for the iPhone 6 is no doubt its screen size but it has much more in its brand new super-slim design. An improved processor and the new iOS 8 are the enough fields to take the new iPhone high on the success charts of the market.
THE SUPER-SLIM DESIGN
The basic change in the design is evident with the soft curves body of iPhone 6. Except some of the plastic detailing on the rear it is all glass and metal. Though by a long time the square design and diamond cut edges have been the striking look, now it has shifted to more rounded edges.
The iPhone 6 is designed smoothly to look like a single piece of metal and glass that is cute and fused together. With superb balance and the rounded smooth edges it is comfortable in the hand regardless the orientation while being 6.9mm thick and just 129g of wait, it feel sleek and strong in the palm.
With change in its shape the buttons are also moved. First the power button is made easy to access by moving it from top of the phone to the right edge, above the SIM tray. Still in many other respects of layout it has things same as the previous iPhones. The volume buttons are there on the left. At the bottom there is the 3.5mm headphone jack, the lightning port and the speaker holes.
Over its super slim design the camera is slightly raised from the body to ensure the image quality. But it remains incorporated well with the design so it doesn’t look odd like many of the other phones in the market. The small edge only feels when the phone is held in landscape while its safety case will easily hide it.
