News & Reviews: Apple iPhone 6 Plus review
Sep 24, 2014
Another day, another revelation about the larger and thin Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Apparently, the iPhone 6 Plus has been bending simply from being in someone's front pants pocket. This initially came from several posts in the MacRumours forums with quite a few users showing images of their bent iPhone 6 Plus. The folks at Unbox Therapy took it a step further showing that you can actually permanently bend your iPhone 6 Plus with just your bare hands. While we don't think anyone will intentionally try to bend their iPhone 6 Plus smartphone it certainly means that you should not put this thin phablet in your pocket without some form of casing to protect it.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus got a detailed tear down from the folks at iFixit confirming that the larger Apple iPhone 6 phablet only has 1GB of RAM. They go on to show that the iPhone 6 Plus is also just a bit easier to repair than the previous Apple iPhone 5S. According to them, the iPhone 6 Plus has a repairability factor of 6 over 10. The iPhone 5S had a repair factor of 5 out of 10. Unfortunately, the drop test for the iPhone 6 Plus did not go as well as the drop test for the iPhone 5S so you may have to be a bit more careful with the latest and largest iPhone. Check out the video for yourself in this article but if you'd like more details about the tear-down do check it out at the source.

The iPhone 6 Plus will be 7.1mm thin and there is no premium version which will have a sapphire crystal glass display. As it is, most of the tech specs and features on the Apple iPhone 6 Plus remain the same as the Apple iPhone 6, except that the Apple iPhone 6 Plus has a larger 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for a 401 ppi pixel density. Other tech specs different in the Apple iPhone 6 Plus include optical image stabilization for the still 8MP iSight rear camera. The iPhone 6 Plus also has support for landscape mode and some apps can activate a split display while the keyboard also has more keys.
