It’s here at last – the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

People queued all night and slept on pavements waiting for the store to open, one person was lucky and then dropped it live on television and the glass shattered, in Paris a fight broke out in a shopping mall and it was all over the launch of a new mobile phone. Yes it is here and we all know what it is, the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 plus, so was it worth the wait, the fights and for some, disappointment?

iPhone 6

Well we will have to wait to get the long term reports, but the initial reaction seems to be very favourable, at least for those who like Apple products. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus are very similar with the exception of the bigger screen with the 6 plus 4.7 inches and 5.5 respectively. Although the battery life appears to be improved and it has always been a complaint about iPhone from reviewers, Apple is claiming a day’s use from the new models. The 6 is thinner than the bigger version, the camera on both models has been improved with sensor upgrades, improved tone mapping, better noise reduction, the 6 plus having a slightly better resolution than its smaller brother.

So when does a mobile phone become a tablet, because with the current trend of bigger and bigger screens, we are surely getting close to the point when for most people, using them with one hand is getting nearly impossible.
