About This Brand

Apple's smart phones have gone through years of conservative, incremental updates, but its latest models, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, catch up to device offerings from other phone makers in a serious way. The revamping includes a larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen respectively, a better battery life, enhanced messaging capabilities, and smart tweaks to their keyboard interfaces. Their Touch ID fingerprint, which promises a safe transaction while eliminating the need to type in a PIN or perform other cumbersome steps, now support the new Apple Pay-wallet service.

Comment:
I had a 4s before this, and loved it. The 5s has completely spoiled me with its fingerprint scanner, is always super snappy and uncomplicated, and comes with impressive free apps. Really good camera, and nice integration with my Civic and a lot of other stereos that come iPod equipped. Air Drop is much easier to use than NFC, and you can send almost anything even to your Mac or iPad instantly. <br />I was looking at reviews for the S5 because a friend had recently been disappointed with it and went back to the iPhone, and certainly, that Mike guy who writes the review is clearly an Android fan. Consumers Reports is the most unbiased source for anything, but they have not done this phone justice. I would highly recommend this phone to technical persons like myself, or to people like my mom who can only use something this simple and intuitive.

Comment:
This is my business lifeline, whether at my office making long distance calls or when I'm on the road, which is frequent.<br />I really like the Retina display. Despite the 4 inch screen, web surfing is not bad and sites are legible. I use this for email in a pinch where wi-fi is not available. The 4G LTE loads data super fast. I've been utilizing Siri, which works great and understands my speech commands real well. Bluetooth sync is a snap with my earpiece. I use this phone's camera to take pictures, which it does a nice job with.<br />I did have an incident, however, when I dropped the phone as I slipped on ice, and the screen broke. While the phone was operational, touching a broken screen is a bad idea. Apple turned the repair- replacement around in three business days, but charged upwards of around $294 for the replacement. My iPhone was in a case which claimed to protect the phone, but that did not help matters. On my wish list is that Apple make this phone more durable. Other than that I love my iPhone
