The iPhone 6’s overall shape is a lot more organic and softer with rounder edges and its now lot more comfortable in the hands than the straight, sharp edges of the iPhone 5s. The curvy design on edge is more like the iPad Air. iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus dwarf previous iPhone models, at the same time, the two phones are the Apple’s thinnest yet, measuring in at 6.9 and 7.1mm thick, respectively comparing to 7.6mm thick in iPhone 5s. According to Apple, the thinner iPhone was possible by making the display thinner which is made of slightly curved glass on edges, designed to flow seamlessly into the body of the device to highlight the “Retina HD” screen of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Both devices includes antennas on back, along with a slightly protruding rear lens.
I think that Apple cleverly saved some body thickness by providing protruding lens, but the big disadvantage is that its now very easy to get scratches on lens if you’re not using any cases. The volume buttons are well designed and pill-shaped like the buttons on the recent iPad Air, and the power button is located to the right side of the device instead of the top of iPhone as in previous models. Its thankfully moved to the right hand side for easy access as its not that easy to use top buttons on larger devices.
iPhone 6 RETINA HD DISPLAY
iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus Displays use “ion-strengthened” glass with an improved polarizer which is good for outdoor viewing, a photo aligned IPS liquid crystal display, and a fingerprint-resistant oleo-phobic coating. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1334 x 740 (326 ppi) while the iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch resolution of 1920 x 1080 (401 ppi). Both iPhones are promised to offer a very higher contrast, better brightness, and improved white balance comparing to old versions of iPhone.
With the Newer iPhone models, Apple has implemented several “Reachability” features to improve the viewing experiences on its larger devices, including Display Zoom and landscape view (iPhone 6 Plus only). Display Zoom is the feature that lets users zoom in to get a closer view at their apps and icons, while standard zoom displays the zoomed content on the screen.
iPhone 6 Plus Landscape view is designed to make the most of the larger screen and to help users be more productive y using all available space more effectively. When in landscape mode, the device will display apps like Mail, Calendar, and Stocks in a wider and better view similar to the way its displayed on the iPad.
