USA Today’s Baig reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6/Plus: ‘Smartphone stars’

“These are the phones Apple devotees have been waiting for: iPhones that measure up to what’s fast becoming the new normal — the large, modern smartphone display,” Edward C. Baig writes for USA Today. “Count me among those glad they’re here.”

“I prefer the 6 Plus because I like the biggest of the big screens, and like that I have to squint less often. It felt fine in my jeans pocket, but won’t fit every snug purse or small pair of hands,” Baig writes. “It’s also still a tad unnatural to hold a really large phone up to your ear during a call. In that sense the 6 felt more comfortable.”

“You can now shoot high-definition videos at a faster (60fps) frame rate and also shoot time-lapse videos. And Apple has also improved the focusing system. I was pleased with the quality of pictures and videos I shot,” Baig writes. “Of note, selfie fans can now capture 10 photos per second as part of a burst mode feature added to the front camera. I took advantage of a timer feature that gives you three or 10 seconds to prepare for your close-up burst.”

“The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are smartphone stars,” Baig writes. “Really big stars.”
