The new iPhone 6: Overview

Apple recently introduced their latest flagship the iPhone 6 and what do you know, they have finally increased the Size... The screen size is now 4.7 whooping inches! ( by Apple standards that is whooping) . Gone are the days when Apple used to say that 4 inches is the ideal screen size for one handed operation. But what now? How will my teenie tiny fingers reach the top end of the screen? lets find out...

Well Apple is smart, even on increasing the screen size of the iPhone 6 they haven't compromised on the one handed usability feature of the phone. When you double tap the Touch ID sensor button (a.k.a. the home button) the whole screen shifts down and the buttons on top of the screen become reachable with your thumb. No more stretching your thumb to extreme lengths.

Well this is what I like, in comparison to other hefty phones which need one hand to hold the phone and the other to use that gorilla phone. I would say that Apple is a great thinker, it always keeps in mind it's users and their ease of use, without doubt this customer first thinking by the Cupertino giant has already paid off as seen by the mile long lines outside Apple store at the launch of every new iPhone. This is one product loyalty that is unmatched by any other brand in the market. 

The iPhone 6 is just 6.9mm, the thinnest iPhone ever! It feels so sleek in the hand with its rounded edges and the screen which curves into the body like an exquisite silk linen.

It's display has also been improved over the older generation of phones. This improved screen has a resolution of 1334 x750 encompassed in an amazing Retina HD display. The new display has new dual domain pixels which give it better viewing angles and an amazing contrast ratio.  

The camera has also been greatly improved with the introduction of 1.5 micron focuspixels and a f2.2 aperture. 'focuspixels' deliver much more information to the camera processor in a short time thus resulting in a much faster focus time than other phones. The new camera in the iPhone 6 can now also shoot video in slow mo at 240 frames per second. 

The new iPhone 6 now supports LTE on 20 bands with upto 150mbps of speed. Now no matter wherever you are in the world, the iPhone's internet speed will never let you down. 

At the end let me tell you about the best and the most important feature that can revolutionize the world: Apple Touch id and Apple Pay. 

With apple's TouchID you can pay at stores by just putting your finger on the home button of the phone. The phone will recognize your finger print and then from your associated bank/credit/ debit card account it will pay the store.
