Back in 2014, there was a revolution in smartphone technology that came in the form of the iPhone 6. It goes for the iPad mini-like style with fingerprint recognition as a result of the Touch ID, its performance and attributes kept it through the competition and even beat most of the flagships released that year.
Simply looking at the device at a glance and holding it in your hand will show you premium quality in design and build. But you only get the true sense of the iPhone 6’s strength when you power on the device and start swiping. Small in size and extremely light, this device is capable of handling anything thrown at it, despite its release date thanks to running the iOS 8.
In a market where devices are enormous in size and have multiple processor cores, Apple exemplify simplicity. They have refined their operating system to work efficiently even with less processing power so that it can keep up with the user’s demands.
Simply put, this is the device for the individual who prefers simplicity over complexity, yet still getting every bit of use from their smartphone. It’s a device you can feel comfortable operating in one hand all the while feeling every bit as premium as a 5-inch device.
There is still a lot going for the iPhone 6, and only a look at the device’s specs could show you that.
ARE NEW ZEALAND OR INTERNATIONAL MODELS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY?
International models are brand new, genuine products. You may notice very minor differences when compared with local models, however, all international models are supplied with an Australia/New Zealand compliant generic charger and are perfectly suited for use in Australia or New Zealand

By cutting out all the middlemen, we’re often able to sell the world’s biggest and best brands (like Apple, Samsung and Huawei) for significantly cheaper than local retailers.
WHY ARE PRICES SO LOW?
Being an online-only retailer allows us to cut unnecessary costs and keep costs down. We’re able to bypass agents, importers, wholesalers and distributors that are usually part of the retail process.

It also means that we avoid the many costs involved with running bricks and mortar stores, resulting in even more savings for you.
WILL DELIVERY TAKE LONGER?
In most cases, the delivery will be within 2 working days. However, for some models, it can take between 10-14 days. Please always feel free to check with the support team on delivery times if you are unsure.

iPhone displays have always been superb, no doubt about that, and the company chose to keep their IPS LCD display, only now it had a 750 x 1334 -pixel resolution and 326ppi (pixels per inch). The display is excellent and still beats most smartphones in terms of clarity, with the only caveat being the 4.7-inch limit. Some people don’t mind the small display, while that might be a turnoff to most people; the choice depends on how you use your device.
Although Apple still maintained an 8MP camera similar to its predecessor, they introduced new technology that made the new camera way better. By increasing the pixel size to 1.4 microns and the aperture to f/2.4, the camera could take better pictures in low light because more light could be detected. To date, this camera can still be used for general pictures, but you wouldn’t want to use them commercially due to the low pixel count.
Apple got everything right with the design, the 4.7-inch display comfortable fits into an aluminium body. At the back, there is glass at the top and bottom to allow for network signals, but these are usually the first to crack upon impact. Nevertheless, the iPhone 5 feels premium in the hand and certainly one device you wouldn’t mind holding for a long time. At the bottom, Apple did away with the thick 12-pin connector and replaced it with a smaller, reversible connector.
Running everything is the Apple A8 chip which is capable of handling ‘heavy’ apps. However, it’s still a 32-bit processor yet more and more apps are being tailored to the new 64-bit processors. This means you may have a little trouble running the latest apps and games, but not so much.
You can get this device in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants; choose wisely here, because there is no expandable storage and what you get is all you will ever have. The RAM is also quite small at 1GB, but iOS has never needed much RAM and the device still runs very smoothly.
The battery on the iPhone 6 is quite small, 1,180mAh, but for a 4.7-inch device, it’s well enough. However, iPhones don’t have the best record with battery life, and this one isn’t any different, you would be lucky to get through the day without recharging, but guaranteed you would have to charge the device every single day.
