iPhone 6 Price & Specs in Bangladesh

At last apple has come with the bigger iPhone by introducing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. The screen size of iPhone 6 is 4.7 inch (1334 x 750 pixel) not even full HD. The dimension of the handset is much bigger for a 4.7 inch screen in comparison to other flagship. You will be disappointed to compare its dimension with Nexus 5 which has a 5 inch screen (Nexus 5 has 5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 inch vs iPhone 6 has 5.43 x 2.72 x 0.34 inch). It even misses some useful features like radio, NFC (limited to apple pay), infrared, micro SD, removable battery. The introduction of water & dust resistance would be a great addition. The camera has not been improved from the 8 MP. The price is very expensive in terms of it hardware. Yet, it is a product of apple. With all of these shortcomings it is faster than it competitors. That is why people wants to buy an iPhone. If budget does not bother you may try the latest from apple, the iPhone 6.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus Price & Review in Bangladesh

Apple iPhone 6 Plus is the first phablet from apple. Its body is in fact a bit bigger than other available flagship of similar 5.5 inch screen. Which makes it tough to carry in pocket and single handed operation is also difficult. The hardware is not a wow either. The RAM is just 1 GB (although iOS does not require a large amount of RAM), the camera is just 8 MP (although it has a lot of improved features to capture stunning images), its bigger body is tend to bend, there is no stereo speakers, QHD screen, FM radio, infra-red, there is no micro SD card slot (apple has not introduced a 32 GB version, from 16 GB it has jumped to 64/128 GB), the NFC only works with apple pay. The price is also very high (it is one of the main reason for buying an apple product by many). There are so many 'noes.' So, why should you buy this? I asked it to a apple fan. He answered I would buy it because it is made by apple. Ok, last but not the least words about iPhone 6 plus is that it is much faster in terms of performance than other competing phablets (although it has low hardware configuration). I think iPhone 6 Plus is a test case to Apples phablet journey. I would rather wait for the next and obviously better phablet from Apple.
