The Overall Experience:

The iPhone 6 is quite a large step up from last year's iPhone 5S. It has a larger 4.7" retina display (up from 4") offering the same pixel density, the new Apple A8 64-bit system chip and an improved 8MP camera which sports larger 1.5µ pixels to help capture more light.

In terms of the design, the seamless combination of anodized aluminum, stainless steel and glass is stunning and it manages to shave 0.7mm off its thickness over last year's model, making it the thinnest iPhone to date.

Innovation comes in the form of Apple Pay, which will combine the convenience and security of Touch ID and Passbook with NFC technology, allowing the iPhone 6 to be used to pay in stores and within apps with a single touch.

While the battery might not be as large a capacity as other flagship devices, it charges quickly it will last a full day for light to medium users due to the power efficiency of iOS 8.

Though the iPhone 6 specs might not be groundbreaking, this phone is for people who appreciate a beautifully crafted handheld device that delivers a fluid and seamless Apple user experience, along with a vibrant retina HD display and a solid, easy to use camera. For those that want a larger 5.5" display there's the new iPhone 6 Plus - Apple's first 'phablet'.

The iPhone 6 comes in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB variants.

How To Buy
 
 

Things to Consider

Though the iPhone 6 is a high-end smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone.  With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the iPhone 6:

  • The aluminium body of the phone is prone to denting and scratching if dropped, if put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector
  • The back of the phone is non-removable which means that you can’t expand the storage, can’t replace the battery and repairs are more difficult and expensive than on most other phones, especially without specialist tools
  • As with other iPhones, it requires a proprietary USB connector instead of a standard micro USB
  • The iPhone 6 uses a nano-SIM
