Top 5 reasons I don’t like the new iPhone 6
iPhone 6 – The Real Side
I know a couple of people are going to hate me for this but here it is guys, my opinion about the new iPhone 6 family and I present to you my top 5 reasons why I don’t like the new iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus.
1) High Price (Really Expensive)
Don’t get me wrong here; the new iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus are great devices especially for those who have been using Apple for a while now. I know a lot of iPhone users who used to say that I wish the iPhone had a bigger screen size like your Nexus 5. Well, there it is guys now you have a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus. But, for a $750 price tag I don’t think that iPhone 6 is a good grab.
The operating system (iOS 8) on the new iPhone is not that great if we compare it to Android 4.4.4 KitKat or the upcoming Android L 5.0 version. A lot of people say that it is buttery smooth and doesn’t lag like some Samsung devices. SO, let me clear this first, Samsung does not run pure Android on their phones; they have their own edition of Android that is basically runs around Touchwiz. A pure Google experience like on the Nexus devices is a whole new world with buttery smooth performance and lightning fast response times. Talking about iOS 8, I would say it is slowly adapting the Android-ness, which is a good thing. But right now, it doesn’t fulfil the needs of a hard core Android User.
3) Wireless Charging
Trust me once you get used to wirelessly charging your phone, there is no way you can go back to cable charging. This is where iPhone 6 is still behind. Today, there are tons of smartphones devices out there, which offer wireless charging capabilities and I wonder why an Apple phone doesn’t appreciate this technology.
Micro-USB is a standard option today with almost all flagship devices except the iPhone 6. A micro-USB charging is so standard that I don’t have to carry around my charger with me where ever I am going because I know that I would definitely find a Samsung user, a LG user, a Motorola user or, even a HTC user with a micro-USB charging cable. Whenever I go to college I don’t have to take my Nexus 5 charger with me as I am 100% sure that I would definitely find someone with a micro-USB cable. By the way, I still appreciate the lightning cable for the iPhone that can be plugged in either way).
5) Water Resistance
As of today, most of the upcoming, top-notch flagship smartphones are Water Resistant, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2. And, for a premium device like the iPhone it is a must. Well, you might be saying that “Umar, your beloved Nexus 5 doesn’t have water-resistance either”. And that’s right it doesn’t. But, my question to you will be: “How much does the Nexus 5 cost, and how much does the iPhone 6 costs?” For a phone that cost around $800, I would definitely expect some special features.
