Giving it to You Straight – iPhone 6 Review
Many people are talking about the iPhone 6, Apple’s latest release to the mobile market. If you have not paid much attention to this phone, our iPhone 6 review will hopefully offer some insight into this newest generation of smart phones. One of the features that iPhone 6 users will notice immediately is that the latest version looks very familiar – it is similar in size to the competition.
In the past, Apple has stuck to the small screen sported by the earlier models, but has now catered to the consumers’ desire for bigger screens. The iPhone 6 is also thinner and sleeker looking that the thicker models released in recent years. The edges are both smooth and seamless, which contribute to the phone feeling like the glass, and aluminum and steel are melded together as one. The phone is available in gold, silver or space gray. This remake might bring some of the Android faithful to the iPhone 6 fold. The iPhone 6 still has the ease of one hand operation, which was the case with past models, and some of the buttons have been revamped for ease of operation.

The iPhone 6 was Built for Speed

iPhone 6 Complaints
When the honeymoon is over and the newness starts to wear off, there will be some complaints about any new technology. That has already begun for this latest generation of iPhones. One of the chief issues reported by some unhappy iPhone 6 users is that the phones bend when placed in pant pockets. The “bending” tendency of the iPhone has been traveling at the speed of light through social media, with many many customers posting photos of bent iPhones.
This warping phenomenon has been reported by the media and has earned the name “bendgate.” However, Apple assures customers that the bending is “extremely rare” and is not the norm for its phones. The company reports very few complaints about the bending, but judging by social media chatter and videos, there seem to be quite a few complaints about the unwanted “flexibility” shown by some of the newest iPhones. Most likely, the concern over the bending will subside as Apple looks at ways to address the issue.
The iPhone 6 can be purchased at Apple stores or online as well as through major wireless carriers. The base price starts around $199, depending on where you shop.
