15 Oct Is iPhone 6 the Next Game Changer or Just Another Hype?
The latest buzz about the release of iPhone 6 (with its pre-order date set on Sept. 12) has been another anticipated move for Mac this year. From the launch of Apple Watch to this, it seems like Apple is still in it for a fierce competition for smartphone territory. So is Apple making itself relevant with these new releases? Probably.
Upon the announcement of iPhone 6 also comes the iPhone 6 Plus. Many have made comparisons with this 8th gen iPhone for the likes of Sony Xperia Z3, Samsung’s S5 and HTC One M8.
Compared to iPhone 5, this latest addition to the bunch has a much sleekier design.
Weight – 6.9 mm that weigh 4.55 ounces
Display – Full retina HD ON 4.7 inches screen
Camera resolutions– 1334 x 750 pixel resolution set at 326 ppi. Great for awesome visual experience.

Latest A8 chip with 64-bit architecture M8 motion coprocessor makes up for the fast processes of program placed within this smartphone. iSight camera has an 8-megapixel camera with 1.5µ pixels. Video capabilities are enhanced with Slo-Mo video set for 120 fps or 240 fps, cinematic video stabilization and capacity to capture photos while still on recording. It also has a cinematic video stabilization feature that’s almost similiar to Instagram’s Hyperlapse.
Much recent Apple’s products are also embedded with fingerprint identity sensor that lets users pay from groceries to shopping using Apply Pay, Apple’s very own cashless payment system that’s getting wide acceptance by some establishments in the U.S. Compared with using plastic cards, this cashless system may become an acceptable form of payment that (as usual) works for Apple’s advantage.
It’s also notable that Apple’s iPhone 6 features 14 hours of talk time, a better battery span compared to its older counterparts. Unique sensors also added are the barometer, three-axis gyro, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and accelerometer that helps in creating better video results, shaper images and faster processes of programs.
Running on iOS 8, iPhone 6 lets users use this app with other Apple products such as their iPad and Mac. It also lets them shift work from their phones to their Mac thanks to Airdrop, a unique feature that enhances productivity wherever you are in the workplace — and beyond. Just like the Apple Watch, the iPhone 6 is also equipped with Health App that analyzes your daily activities such as walking, sitting or climbing.
With better RAM storage, enhanced pixel capacity, better call quality and unique cashless payment method could be some of the many features that makes this an innovative product. Apple definitely is trying to breakthrough mobile payment method and even integrate it with human activities such as health and home security to add more ‘usability’ (and probably dependency) off this phone.
