Apple iPhone 6 unboxing
posted by John V. / Sep 19, 2014, 3:01 PM
Before checking out the iPhone 6 meticulously from head-to-toe, the design is distinctively that of an iPhone, particularly due to its iconic home button. However, after hold it in our hands, we begin to take more notice of its redesign – one that’s more rounded around the edges. Well, it still feel solid in the hand, thanks in part to its sturdy brushed aluminum chassis, which has taken a unibody direction this time around. Another apparent thing is its overall size! It’s undoubtedly bigger in overall footprint, but it’s pretty slick to find its profile being skinnier than ever before.
By now, you’re all probably well aware about the specs, like its 4.7-inch Retina Display, 8-megapixel iSight camera, 64-bit based Apple A8 processor, so we won’t get into all of that here. Instead, we’re really curious to find out exactly how it performs – whether or not it has a significant punch over its predecessor in last year’s iPhone 5s. Naturally, we’ll be putting it through the paces to see its true worth. As we near the inevitable holiday season, the iPhone 6 will no doubt be a formidable handset in the space, but the main question is to what degree.
Don’t forget to watch the video below and expect our in-depth review soon!

Note 4 alone is way better than iPhone 6 and + Apple's strategy is not good for long run. They can't sell specs from 2012 in 2014 with those price tags. Loyal Apple fans are buying that's good but people with real tech knowledge know what I mean....

Apple made big mistake to omit the better display and OIS of the iPhone 6+ here. Well, the display of iPhone 6+ is same old tech, but better than the one on iPhone 6(4.7") As well as we know the izombies they like to have the best iPhone possible, no matter of the price . Most of them will blindly buy the huge brick iPhone 6+ instead (8mm bigger than Note 3) and then they will swear their own mummy later. LOL

Which color looks best?

I usually prefer the white iPhones, but this year I prefer the Space Gray color. The antenna bands don't seem as pronounced on the Space Gray model.

I personally don't use a case. I've dropped my iPhone 5 a few times, and nothing has happened to it. I'm very happy with the build quality, so I don't use a case. I don't know about the iPhone 6 though, especially with the curved glass it has.

If I were Apple (be it the country or regional manager or Tim Cook himself) I would immediately call that Australian guy Jack who did the first 'unboxing' and replace his dropped device, even if it's not that badly damaged. It would be a magnanimous act which won't do Apple any harm. Do it Apple. Just do it.

This is Steve Jobs's war. Steve Jobs was inspired, passionate, and courageous. He also wanted a "thermonuclear war" with Android. Thermonuclear wars are awesome in video games. In real life, they are horrible for everyone, the provenance of only the craziest James Bond villains. Jobs's war was in the courtroom, sure, but the destructive potential is real: huge expenses, fewer devices, less choice. Apple are patent trolls. Apple loves milking innocent stupid dimwits, who believes, Apple makes and tells people, they are the best. Lmao.

Listen iBoy: Apple is never going to beat Android through ankle-biting lawsuits. If they want to win, they need to adapt and innovate faster. That's not some half-baked theory of mine, it's Darwin, and you see it in technology all the time (hello BlackBerry). Averaging two major updates a year, perhaps Android's biggest strength is how fast it can adapt and evolve. If HTC can find an easy workaround, everyone else will, too. That's how species survive.
