Apple's dominance in the smartphone market is something of a regular thing. And that shows from the long lines we see every year in front of Apple stores all across the US and China. And with the release of the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it shouldn't be any different.
Keeping the discussion limited to the iPhone 6 for the moment, the handset, as you may have guessed, is a bigger variant of the Apple's newest iPhone handset. The handset came in alongside its smaller counterpart and has already taken the world by storm.
While the iPhone 6 Plus is yet to go that global, we have already managed to locate a few interesting things about the new handset that are worth knowing. Here are the top 5 among them.
The Age of Apple Phablet
We know that most of the fans will indeed be rooting for the smaller variant of the iPhone, but for Apple fans who have been wanting a phablet-sized iOS handset, it doesn't get any better than the iPhone 6 Plus. The handset is the first to boast a full HD, 1920 x 1080 display.
But It's Still Usable In One Hand
Apple knows that the iPhone 6 isn't really a small handset. And hence accessibility could be an issue when one hand is considered. However, the company has introduced something called "Reachability," which aims to reduce the amount you need to stretch your thumb to the very top of the screen.
The Handset is Impossibly Thin
At just 7.1mm thickness, the 6 Plus is almost as thin as it gets. This means sliding the handset into your pocket isn't that big a deal, although expect the top part of it to stick out of your pocket. And going by the competition it has, we have to say that it is easily the best looking phablet available.
Switch With Ease
If you are one of those transitioning from older iPhone handsets to the new iPhone 6, you will not have problems. You will find the familiar rows of apps that have been displayed on home screens on the iPhone 6 Plus. In fact, during initial step up, you will even be given the option of two icon and text sizes.
The Camera Protrudes Slightly
This one you may not notice, but the camera on the back of the iPhone 6 Plus protrudes slightly from surface. However, that's negligible as Apple tries to aim at a thin handset. Moreover, you might never even know about it if you put it straight into a cover from the start.
