Finally - This is definitely an awesome phone. I changed three android phones(high end devices) and was never satisfied !! I did root all my android phones just to get some extra juice in the performance and had to clear the memory every time considering to keep my memory usage to minimum level !! But whatever,,admitting it,,all the 3 phones did hang !! But this one is a different experience !! The phone looks premium,,iOS experience is fantastic,, camera quality is great,, performance and everything is pretty awesome !! Definitely it might cost you some bucks, but every penny is worth it !!
Had color variation on logo its slim Really love slow motion video option can take high quality videos.. Remember not to put on back pocket of a tight jeans else you have to buy an extra Rotti roller :P
6+ is great phone which gives a 6 inch display ( approx.) and works smoothly at any point of time. Doesn't lag at any time even though many programs and games might be running in the background. It's really a gr8 phone to use. But overpriced.
First things first - the delivery was prompt and it was from AAA deals (had opted for in-a-day delivery). The phone is very sleek and thin - might need a case if you have slippery hands. The build quality is excellent. Below review is from my own experience of switching from Galaxy S3 to this iphone 6+. The cons: 1. The phone is big - if you have small hands/prefer smaller phones in general, this is not for you (especially existing iphone users - consider iphone 6 maybe). Existing Galaxy/Note series/Nexus 6 fans however might find it easy enough to get used to but.. 2. iOS Being an Android user myself till now, I think the features offered by iOS are nowhere a match for Android.. Power users will have to get used iOS a little. And most features that are in built into Android/Cyanogen are offered by paid apps in case of iOS. 3. Data Although this is related to point 2 (iOS) rather than the phone itself, found it that big a deal to mention it separately.. iOS gobbles up data like mad, incremental upgrades aren't as efficient as Android (OS updates) and even regular apps are way heavier.. For e.g. consider this, Google sheets, that's 30-40 MB on android, is more than 110 MB in iOS. Considering android has to support more resolutions and phone models than iphone, I think this is gross inefficiency.. The pros: The advantages now: 1. Battery: The phone lasts 1.5-2 days easily with both location and background app refresh (sync) on all the time. My phone still has 9% despite 8 hours of usage and 32 hours of standby (after plugged out of full charge yesterday morning). That's a good 40 hours of usage. On the other hand, I'm yet to hear about an android phone that lasts more than a day with Sync, Google now and location set to on - even the nexus 6 would barely last a few hours more than a day.. This is not an understatement - this is easily the best phone in terms of battery life today (To be fair, worthy competitors in android are Note 4, Oneplus One, Nexus 6 & Moto Turbo - all of them come close but not quite matching up to this) 2. Camera: The camera is still 8 MP, but has digital and optical image stabilization. Shoots fast and quite good - functions so smoothly. Low light photography works great. The only better phone cameras out there (in Android) are Galaxy s6 and LG G4. And considering this is just 8 MP but still matches up with the best cameras out there, the file size difference is quite an advantage.. 3. iOS: Although it has its pains, iOS still has its advantages - the entire OS feels very smooth and lag free (can't stress this enough - even the best of the Android phones starts lagging after six months or so). Even other minor features - the passbook, Stocks, Apple health all of them have equivalent Android apps, but the tight integration with the core OS is much better here. Also - iTunes sync - a lot of people might hate it, but this is still the best software to sync playlists and songs. To give you an example, you can even set a track to play only between the start of minute 2 and 3 on your desktop, and the same will get synced on to your iphone/ipod (tried removing preludes in a song anyone?) So yes, this phone has its advantages and disadvantages - but at the end of the day if you just want a smartphone to last long, shoot great photos and are ready to experiment with iOS a little, I think this is for you. Considering the best android phones are almost the same price (S6/S6 edge) and given that they run Touchwiz, this decision was a no-brainer after all :)
One of the wonderful gadget on face of the planet Earth!! Very fast and interactive UI Siri became more intelligent Office tools/apps are good and useful 8mp camera is awesome with features like Time-lapsed and slow-motion shooting Photo editing is fun
I am a big guy with big hands so buying a super sized smartphone was a no brainer for me. Hence, it goes without saying that I have been an Android user since stone age! I won't go into the usual boring stuffs of megapixels, ppi, number of cores, how much ram or that age old battle of iOS vs Android. My views are completely based on using the phone since a month as my daily driver. I have always believed that in terms of design & choice of materials, Apple is second to none. The touch & feel of the anodised aluminium can't be described with mere words. But there's a flip side to it of being extremely slippery. I haven't seen a smartphone display with such accurate colours & such insane amount of brightness output which gives it a huge boon for sunlight legibility. Apple has been known for creating industry leading smartphone cameras and I was mighty impressed with the focussing power, low light image quality & the ability to snap great looking photos consistently. Now, if there's one thing that I was completely blown away was the performance. It is so buttery smooth. I have played some of the most graphic intensive games like Modern Combat 5, Asphalt 8, Max Payne, etc and that too, around 2 hours straight on many occasions & i didn't encounter a single frame drop or lag or heating issues. I used to hear about it but only after having experienced it myself that I agree that gaming is literally on a different level altogether on iOS. Coming to battery life, even for a heavy user like me, there hasn't been a single day where I have been able to discharge the battery completely. But what's even better is the unreal standby time. I go to sleep with around 20% charge and wake up after 6-7 hours with 16-17% charge still left! P.S. - The price disparity between Apple products in India & a country like USA is just plain jane stupid. Spending so much on a phone which you will not be using for more than 2 years is just too much no matter how great the phone is. All those issues regarding the bend-gate was way too much blown out of proportion. I always carry the phone in my trousers & jeans just like any of my previous phones & there's absolutely no problem at all.
Nothing can beat the ultra clear screen quality. Every phone looks smaller now! :D I completely love the experience of 6 Plus.
Apple's iPhone series have been known for their simplistic approach. The overall eco system is made in the same manner. I bought this one for my wife as I know she aint a power user. Pros: Best build quality. Best camera. TouchID is awesome. Best fingerprint scanner on a mobile device. The 240 fps slomo is the best. Camera optics are awesome, the best out there with Optical Image Stabilization. Simplistic approach towards the user interface. Consistent performance across all apps i.e quick and simple. Excellent gaming experience. Battery life is quite decent. My wife charges her iPhone 6+ once every two days. Built in hardware sensors for "Health" apps to measure the steps, elevation and distance. I still love the readability mode on the safari browser. Cons: Super slippery. You will need a skin or case if you are worried about damaging the phone. Restricted eco system (Classic apple :) ), you still need iTunes or a software to transfer media. Not many apps still make the right use of the large screen. Most of them are simply blown up to fit. Multi tasking capabilities are still elementary. Lack of customization. You still cant add mobile data in the quick settings drawer or do anything else. What you see is basically what you get.
