When iPhone 6 was launched, it was thought to be a huge rethink on the part of Apple. Here are the salient features -

Design and Build

The sharp edges and flat surface of the iPhone 5 has been changed to a smooth and slick feeling. The rear has a few regulatory text and other logos too. I feel they could have been avoided. The camera bulge is also a little uneasy. The physical dimensions read 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm,while the weight of the device is 129 grams.

Hardware

iPhone 6 is powered by a new A8 processor. There is an additional M8 processor that handles the sensors. The device has 1 GB of RAM. The 16 GB of RAM internal storage cannot be extended. Having to spend a huge amount just for more memory capacity is something that feels annoying.
The phone supports new standard of WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. NFC is available but only works with Apple Pay.

Software

The device runs on iOS 8 and that is the most cherished feature on iPhone 6. Improved photo editing, changes in iMessage features and Tweaks to Safari are some of the examples. Custom keyboards are the new in-things.

Camera

The rear camera on the phone reads 8 MP. It may look a little low compared to other competing devices. But there is an improvement in the lens and the sensors. Low light performance has been improved. Videos have continuous auto focus and better stabilisation. The camera also supports slow motion at 120fps.

The camera app has no special effects. The interface is minimalist. there is no 4K video recording. The camera performance is commendable. Day light shots are crisp and clear with natural colors. Even the low light images are good enough.

Those were some of the features of iPhone 6. You can buy the device at Rs. 57990 on Flipkart for a version with 128 GB internal storage. The 16 GB version on Amazon is listed at Rs. 38473. 64 GB variant can be bought at Rs. 48690. Amazon sells the 128 GB variant at Rs. 62726.

The iPhone 6 can be purchased across all major e-commerce sites.

Apple launched iPhone 6 in September, 2014 which proved to be a huge success because it was the first time Apple shifted from their traditional smartphone design. It received an overwhelmed response from all over the world.

Design and Display
iPhone 6 is completely different from its ancestors, you will see each and every corner of the smartphone upgraded. Instead of those sharp edges Apple device you will find a tremendous sleek smartphone. Looking at the front panel of the smartphone, you will find front camera, earphone and sensor at the top whereas Menu button with fingerprint sensor is placed same as iPhone 5S. On the back of the smartphone, you will find Camera paired with Flash placed at the top right corner and Apple sign in the middle.

iPhone 6 features a 5-inch Full HD display which is much better than iPhone 5S in terms of quality. You will see more clear and crispy colors in iPhone 6.

Performance and Hardware
Apple iPhone 6 comes with A8 processor accompanied with 1GB RAM. As usual you will not get microSD slot means no memory expansion. You will have to stick with 16GB storage which tends to fill very soon, because Apple OS itself occupies around 4GB from user available 12GB. So if you are huge applications lover then I will prefer you to go for a bigger storage option.

In terms of performance, iPhone 6 does a tremendous task. Under proper usage you will not find a single lag in the smartphone whereas you will be able to play all those resource hungry games on your smartphone with ease.

Apart from that you will get all those basic functionality found in any other smartphone such as Bluetooth, NFC etc. Apple Pay was the other addition to iPhone 6 which allows you to pay just by touching your smartphone to the NFC machine.

Operating System
Your new iPhone 6 may comes with iOS 8 but you can later upgrade it to iOS 9 which will optimize your performance and battery life by a huge margin. There are a lot of optimization done with in-build application as well which will leave you surprised.

Camera
Apple iPhone 6 comes with 8 MP rear camera and 5 MP front-facing camera, believe me buddy they are just numbers. iPhone 6 snaps much better images than its competitors. Let it be low light or Bright images iPhone snaps them with correct exposure.

To enhance your camera performance by using Filters, etc. you can always download 3rd-Party application such as Retrica, etc.

Price
iPhone 6 was launched with a huge price tag compared to its competitors but now after launch of upgraded version you will be able to buy it in a better price.

As per your demand you can get Apple iPhone 6 in Space Grey 16GB from Amazon in Rs. 38,199. Personally, I will prefer you to choose Amazon because of their appreciable service.

Substitutes
With time being many companies including launched better devices.

If you can stretch your budget a bit then I will prefer you to go for iPhone 6S because it comes with a better 12 MP Camera and A9 processor.

You will be able to get 16GB Space Grey iPhone 6S at Rs. 49,000 from Amazon whereas 32 GB variant is priced at Rs. 58,000.

Thank You,
Joy Joon
