The new iPhone 6 Plus: Overview

Apple recently introduced their two latest flagship phones the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 plus is the biggest iPhone yet in the history of apple. Actually it is not a phone, it's a phablet. The screen size is 5.5 inches!. Gone are the days when Apple used to say that 4 inches is the ideal screen size for one handed operation. This is a phone behemoth and functions well like an iPad.

Well Apple is smart, even on increasing the screen size of the iPhone 6 Plus 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.

As compared to its smaller sibling the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 plus has optical image stabilization which gives better stable photos and videos which are unmatched by any other phone in the market today. Also the apps run in the landscape mode with multiple columns when you tilt the phone, just like the iPad. In addition, the 6 Plus has a higher battery capacity, meaning you can expect to talk, watch movies, and surf the Web for a few hours longer. 

Although the iPhone 6 Plus is 7.1mm thick but still 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 1920 x 1080 (401 PPI) encompassed in an amazing Retina full 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 Plus can now also shoot video in slow mo at 240 frames per second.  

The new iPhone 6 Plus 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. Also it has a new wifi chip with support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi which can reach gigabit speeds if you have that kind of a broadband connection(ex. Google fiber)

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. 

Also 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.
