I think it is safe to say that a number of people were pretty disappointed with the iPhone 5s and its functionality. Whether you liked the 5s or not, maybe you are on the fence about purchasing a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Whatever your reasons behind the delay, here are the top functions that might help you decide.
- High Definition Screen Display
Of course the screen sizes you have to choose from are bigger. This is already a good thing for people that want to see a bigger picture. Not only that, these phones will give you the greatest resolution yet. The 6 has a resolution of 326 pixels per centimeter (ppc) and the Plus has 401 ppc.
The contrast ratios are also better than previous models. You’ll notice whiter whites and deeper black colors. This is really beneficial when looking at pictures.
- One Hand Mode For Larger Phones
We asked for a bigger screen, and we got it. However, one of the design flaws of having a larger screen is the ability to use one hand for navigation. Apple got this one right when they created a function that allows for one handed use.
Since the display is bigger, reachability is a bit of a problem. With a double tap of the home button, a user can shift the function to take up the lower half of the phone.
- Sleek and Thin Phone Design
If the functions of the phone aren’t already enough for you, the design is sure to impress. It has a light feel and thin casing. Apple abandoned the traditional square sides. This model has curves and a seamless design.
Like we have grown to expect, the phone is made from lasting materials. Stainless steel, anodized aluminum and topped off with a glass screen.
- M8 Motion Coprocessor
The M8 motion coprocessor can give you an accurate idea of how many steps you are taking. Also, there is a barometer that can help keep track of going up stairs or hills. The accelerometer tells you how far you walked or ran.
If you are used to walking around with your phone in your pocket this is a great feature. Of course, if you do not have the phone on your body, this feature will not be of use to you.
- Faster LTE Download Speeds
What’s worse than waiting for your phone to pull up a video or website address? The iPhone 6 has 20 LTE bands. This is 7 more than the 5 had. It is more efficient for a longer period of time, because the processor can work harder before stopping and slowing down.
- Much Better Battery Life Than Older Models
How frustrating is it to see your battery life deplete while you are using your phone? Instead of having to carry around your charger, Apple worked to increase the battery life by upwards of 18% over the older versions.
- High Quality Videos and Pictures
The iPhone has always had a good camera, but the upgrades are better on this model. You have twice the auto focus speeds than the older models. This will mean pictures that are not as blurry. Also, there is optical image stabilization for shaky hands.
The video quality has been enhanced in two ways. There is a noise reduction filter to keep down background sounds. Also, the video will look clearer when you play it back.
- Forget About Swiping Cards with Apple Pay
This feature is a secure version of google wallet. The geek in you can get excited that it is password protected by your fingerprint. Not only that, you will know the transaction is successful when the phone vibrates in your hands.
If you lose your phone, you can put it on Lost Mode. This makes it so that no one can access your payment information.
These are a few of the top reasons that you should get the latest Apple phone. Hopefully you have enough information now that will help you make the best decision for you.
