iPhone 6 review

By about 43 mins ago.

Reviewing an iPhone is a curious endeavor. One might think it’s just like reviewing any other device, and the processes are indeed roughly the same. The difference, and it is a vast difference, is the purpose.

When reviewing a smartphone, a pair of shoes, a computer, a car, a movie or even a toaster, the purpose is generally to use experience and expertise to assist readers, or viewers, in making a buying decision. Even small gadget blogs can influence thousands or tens of thousands of people. A site like BGR influences millions and a large media organization can influence tens of millions of people.

But with iPhones, this simply is not the case. More →

By about 2 hours ago.

Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have one major difference that is instantly obvious from the moment you first see them: the size. Of course, the new iPhone 6 is indeed larger than any iPhone that has come before it, but the iPhone 6 Plus is even more massive. In fact, Apple’s first phablet is even taller than Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Note 4, which launches next month. But size isn’t the only thing that separates the iPhone 6 from the 6 Plus, and a new in-depth comparison video focuses on the major differences between the devices’ cameras, as well as camera performance.
