Apple Joins The Giant Phone Craze

Today Apple announced the release of their new smart phones that iphone 6 and the iphone 6 Plus…Yes “Plus” means it’s bigger. Now I don’t know about you guys, but I’m just not a fan of these giant tablet sized phones. I know a few people that have them and they are very happy with them. As for myself, I don’t like them at all. They seem so impractical and if I wanted a tablet I would just use my ipad…tablet. This is just my opinion however, so by no means do I mean any disrespect to you guys out there that can’t fit your phones in your pocket.

I know most of you are wanting to know some of the specs for both the iphone 6 and the iphone 6 plus so here you go. The iphone 6 has a 4.7″ screen as oppsoed the the iphone 5s with a 4″ screen. It comes with an HD retina display and a resolution of 1334 x 750. The A8 processor will make it the fastest iphone yet. Personally I have had my iphone 5S for a little less than a year and I love it so I don’t think this is enough for me to upgrade.

The iphone 6 Plus comes in at a whopping 5.5 inches making it larger than the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One. It will also run an HD retina display but at a resolution of 1920 x 1080. Both will also include the new iSight camera that has a sensor with Focus Pixels and new video features, like 1080p HD at 60 fps, slo-mo at 240 fps, and time-lapse video mode. Pretty impressive since everyone is trying to get true 1080p out of just about everyone of their devices these days.

Apple also announced a new service called Apple Pay. Apparently you can check out at stores using an app on your iphone that uses the touch ID and passbook. I’m a little skeptical about that, but it definitely is innovative. All in all I’m not super impressed with their huge announcement today, but then again I’ve never claimed to be a huge apple fan either. They do have some great and convenient technology, but I probably won’t be upgrading just yet. As always I want to know what you think Nerd Nation.
