“After using both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for a week, I can report that Apple has successfully addressed its size deficiency, and much more. The $199 (with contract) iPhone 6 packs a 4.7-inch screen, big enough to get down to business, into the most comfortable smartphone I’ve ever held,” Geoffrey A. Fowler writes for The Wall Street Journal. “And while the iPhone 6 Plus feels too big for my taste, for $100 more its 5.5-inch screen offers an option for road warriors who don’t want to carry a tablet.”
“While the iPhone 6’s battery life proved mediocre with its screen at full brightness, it’s still the best smartphone you can buy,” Fowler writes. “What makes the iPhone 6 the best? Performance, usability and camera refinements, coupled with a safe, powerful operating system that now lets the iPhone’s big collection of apps do more.”
“Beyond that, the iPhone 6 promises a big leap forward in what a smartphone can be in our lives: a real digital wallet—eventually the one thing you grab when you leave the house,” Fowler writes. “The screen is a bit more readable in sunlight than its best-selling rival, the Samsung Galaxy S5. Apps are snappy; the iPhone 6’s [64-bit Apple A8] processor is up to 20% faster than last year’s iPhone.”
