Apple iPhone 6 has not only a bigger display than its predecessors but also it is better in every cases. With this addition, apple simply tried to grab the market of people looking for devices with bigger display.

Design: The overall body design of iPhone 6 is unique in many sense. The whole device weighs about 4.55 ounces (129 grams) and is 5.44inches in length, 2.64inches in width and only .27inches in height. Which makes it the thinnest mobile phone apple has ever made. Apple iPhone 6 has just the right dimension that fits comfortably in hand. The Apple gives you three color choice for iPhone 6, which are Silver, Gold, and Space Gray.

Display: The display is 4.7inches Retina HD display. According to Apple, Retina HD display used in iPhone 6 is the thinnest multi-touch display they have ever made. The screen has wide screen resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels which has about 326 ppi pixel density with 16M colors. This never before seen innovation is promised to give you higher contrast, dual domain pixels for more accurate color at wider viewing angles, and an improved polarizer.

Camera: The Apple iPhone 6 has the new 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1.5µ pixels. The camera lens has a ƒ/2.2 aperture.

For this reason the camera lens sticks out a little bit from the very thin chassis of iPhone 6. This might seem problem to some user as the lens should be more prone to be scratched.
