Here’s to us and got iPhone 6 – A new smartphone from Apple. As always, I will not do the usual review, and will try to briefly share their first impressions and thoughts about the device. And experience at this time I was very different from all previous ones.
Design and ergonomics – Apple iPhone 6
Apple smartphones are known for the fact that on them is always expecting much. I would say – more than from anyone else. Remember the story of the iPhone 4, which was found in the bar, then everyone said that the smartphone can not be such a freak and a Chinese Crap. However, when it introduced the Jobs and smartphone into the hands of the first bloggers, reviews have changed dramatically and now design 4 and 4s many consider one of the best in history.
The same story was with the iPhone 5, many did not believe that these were lighted housing developed at Apple, but even here the final opinion has been extremely positive. With “six” are all a little different. When the network lit up the first body samples, many were taken aback by the huge stripes on the back side, people spitting, and I never expected that in real life the magic of Apple will take its toll and the smartphone will still like it.
But this did not happen, as the band looked ridiculous as distracting from the design, so everything remains in life. And it’s a bit not nice, although nothing beyond critical not just the design does not feel so vylizanym as before. Besides, now you know that he is unlikely to change in the next year.
Because of the increased display and increased body size. Moreover, Apple did not try to make a very compact smartphone. Thin – yes, its thickness is only 6.9 mm, but the Moto X was smaller. Dimensions of novelty – 138 x 67.1 x 6.9 mm, weight – 129 grams. Due to the small thickness and the maximum rounded edges, the smartphone felt a little soap and very slippery. It’s very easy to drop, and the fall display with almost 100% probability is broken, because it greatly extends from the housing. But the assembly in the smartphone is very good, it will be hard to bend. In my instance, it is true, it is hardly noticeable sometimes leaves the screen panel in the lower right corner, but it is likely a partial case.
For the first time in the history of the production of iPhone, the lock key was transferred from the upper bound on the right that it was convenient to reach with your thumb. The remaining elements were in place, except that the NFC chip inside appeared, but it will only work with Apple Pay . Overall, the design is good, but like I said, to each new iPhone there are high expectations and this time he did not live up to the end.
Display – Apple iPhone 6
In the case of the iPhone 6 Plus, where resolution 5.5″ display is 1080×1920 points, everything is clear, but the iPhone 6 display resolution of some “fabulous” 750×1334 point. Where developers have taken such a permit? Similar in general where something was before? I do not understand why the iPhone 6 Plus resolution Full HD.
Firstly, in the line of smartphones added another resolution that creates fragmentation, lack of which have prided themselves connoisseurs of the art Apple; secondly, the 4.7″ display with FullHD resolution were two years ago, in the same HTC One; Third, at this resolution pixel density is 326 dpi.
In 2010, it was very good, but now on display clarity is inferior to all flagships. He is good at something else: viewing angles, the absence of any air gap, color rendition, contrast, brightness – that is, seems to be great, but the pixels are visible to the naked eye. Not critical, but I’m on my 5S their notice in the text, the pictures with high detail, and very much like to the novelty it was better. And then there’s the fact that in other flagship 5″ QuadHD put … And that, again, this display will remain in the next generation of the iPhone, and may not be the same.
Camera – Apple iPhone 6
Apple has not pursued on megapixels is good. In order to increase the number of pixels on the matrix, and the matrix must be increased. Since the matrix remains the same size, so that the quality has not fallen, the number of pixels remains the same – 8 million. In fact, the photo quality is not changed (or changed, but it is not noticeable). The changes affected the AF phase and now it works really fast and SlowMo, now you can shoot in 720p with a frame rate of 120 and 240 in the second.
It’s very cool, today, as I understand it, so can not nobody else. Moreover, even those smartphones that can shoot in 120 k / s, often strongly shake or quality, or cheating with permission. The only suspect – it seems to me, the picture when shooting at 240 fps, though, is interpolated and in fact, 720p is derived from a lower resolution. Unfortunately, the optical stabilization has got only the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 6 is present only software development, but it works so-so. But now you can shoot a panorama of up to 43 MP!
Specifications and Software – Apple iPhone 6
Unlike most manufacturers of Android-devices, Apple is not chasing the numbers, namely the implementation. In this case – not for the number of cores and gigahertz, and for the architecture. The iPhone 6, a dual-core processor Apple A8, clocked at 1.4 GHz. It is made of 20-nm process technology, the processor is 64-bit. Graphics – PowerVR GX6650. Manufacturer promises a performance gain up to 25% when calculations and to 50% in graphics processing. In fact, modern heavy games run on both devices the same, plus or minus a couple of seconds. In the video below just shows this difference, frankly – is not critical.
By the way, in the synthetic tests the difference between 5s and 6 also is not great:
RAM is still 1GB and, oddly enough, is enough. If you discard prejudices RAM in this case – not the pixels on the display, which can be seen, the lack of RAM in the smartphone is not felt, because it does not exist. Yes, someone for the normal operation of multiple applications and services in the background requires 2 or 3 GB of memory, there is one missing. User memory can now be 16, 64 and 128 GB. Version of 32 GB cleaned. I would be trivial, but I also think that 16 GB should have died a year ago, and 32 be the minimum storage.
Operating System – iOS 8, about which we all know already. Let me just note that the Assistant to the upper icons bugging one hand realized abruptly. You simply touch the button twice home (do not press, namely the touch), and will move down the top. Fast and convenient, a good decision.
Conclusion – Apple iPhone 6
What can I say? For the first time in my memory that Apple has released a really controversial device in terms of design. iPhone 5 was just bad, in my opinion, and that the quality is good, like everyone else, but the design … This is where Apple’s waiting for that same magic this time, again, in my opinion, it forgot to add. Pay attention to the band, even the most open-minded people, and none have they caused association with stickers, which must be removed after unpacking the gadget. But if there is no problem with the design, the smartphone as a whole is great, it all in balance: good camera, display, sound, body and others. But now I can say – iPhone 6 is not a leader in the class, and one of many.
