iPhone 6 reviewShaun McGillMon, 22 Sep 2014 02:00:00 +0000http://www.lostinmobile.com/home/iphone-6-review52bd65a0e4b0aee2c11d35b4:52bd9eb3e4b09f4528ffce36:541dc318e4b042b085c3d034 i6top.jpg

So here I go with my yearly review of the most amazing phone in the world ever! Or as a recent emailer (you know who you are) put it-

"Looking forward to your biased and stupidly positive review of the iPhone 6."

It does seem that there are many people out there who will not even consider an iPhone for a variety of reasons, some sensible and some based on a mindset that they have. While I rarely agree with not trying a device for non-practical reasons, it also appears that the recent reviews from the popular tech sites have not helped the situation.

Stephen Fry was rightly criticised for his article in The Guardian in which he made the following comments-

"Regarding the dimensions, many Android owners will point out how late the Cupertino company has come to the size game. But once again, Apple wanted to wait until it got the perfect merger of processor, battery life, resolution, materials and OS workarounds. Being first isn

"That's kind of our job to stir things up a bit isn't it?"  Voir?

"That's kind of our job to stir things up a bit isn't it? That's why we wanted to be in a rock'n'roll band in the first place," U2 singer Bono has told Radio 2.
Well they've certainly done that after Apple put the band's latest album on every iTunes account to mark the launch of the iPhone 6.
Apple has now released a tool to remove Songs of Innocence after a backlash.
Although Bono says it's great so many people have checked them out.
Speaking to Jo Whiley on Radio 2, the frontman said: "I've just heard that 38 million people have listened to Songs of Innocence in the last seven days.
"If you're a songwriter, if you're in a band, that's kinda all you can ask for." More at the BBC.

He is such a (fill in the blank).

iOS 8 impressions  Voir?

This isn't going to be long, but I thought I would spill out some of my thoughts concerning Wednesday's iOS 8 release.

It looks and feels like iOS 7 in almost every way. There is no visual makeover that came with iOS 7, but I get the feeling that it will be a slow burner and that many of the benefits will come in time as developer jump on board.

The ability to use new keyboards is great and I am already really enjoying SwiftKey which is my keyboard on Android. The swipe down motion for new messages feels instantly natural and I already can't imagine having to open Messages every time to reply. I'm not so convinced by the audio recording feature in Messages, but I guess it has the potential to offer a more immediate voicemail alternative.

The new Control Centre is just awful- what was Apple thinking of with that design? I have to say that the multi-tasking panel is also now a complete mess with semi-square icons at the bottom, square panels in the centre and round icons at the top. It all feels rather disjointed and most unlike Apple- maybe Mr Ive should stick to just the hardware?

Elsewhere, I have noticed some app bugs. PocketMoney has a blank space in the interface, miCal does not me delete events and Genius Scan can no longer save entries. Of course, the developers are responsible for these, but it goes to show that they are still a few apps that need the full iOS 8 treatment.

Battery performance has been terrible for me, shock horror, and this is likely because it is the first release and also because I did an iCloud restore. My intention with the iPhone 6 is to back up my text messages (Apple needs to offer an alternative way to save them besides iCloud) and do a 'new device' set up. It will be painful, but may well give me greatly improved battery performance over time.

Despite all of the above niggles, I am quite impressed with iOS 8 and it still feels like the same old software. The places where it is inconsistent and busy highlight that Apple is probably right to make slow and steady changes. It may be a wonderful mobile operating system, but it doesn't appear to be one that is easy to change without diminishing the reasons why so many people rely on it.

The true cost of your phone  Voir?

So, with a contract, you pay Verizon $300 up front for a 64 GB iPhone 6 and then pay $40 per month for two years, adding $960. And to add insult to injury, Verizon will charge you $30 to upgrade your phone at the end of the contract, for a total of $1,290.
If you buy the phone on the Verizon Edge program, you pay monthly installments that add up to the full retail price of the phone, $750. But over that two-year period you only pay $15 a month for smartphone access, or $360. The total is $1,110, or $180 less than you would pay with a contract.
Confusing? Hell yes, it

The Amazon Voyage  Voir?

The high-resolution display with 300 ppi lets you enjoy sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass screen is crafted to eliminate glare and feel like paper to the touch.
PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure to the side of the device to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback.
Kindle Voyage can be read in sunlight or total darkness

The new iPhones. Why do people feel the need to ruin it for others?  Voir?

I read a half dozen reviews of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus before work this morning, on all the usual tech blogs and newspaper websites.  Most agree that it the are not just the best iPhones yet, but among the best smartphones you can buy.
 
One other common factor to all of the reviews was the extraordinary vitriol in the comments below, with owners of other phones decrying Apple owners as sheep, accusing the tech reviewers of being, variously, hypocrites, paid shills, blinded by marketing or biased, condemning the screen, camera, processor, OS and battery life and holding up their own favoured device as clearly better.
If you read the two reviews in The Guardian (one by Stephen Fry) and the one in the Independent, it

Daring Fireball on the Apple Watch  Voir?

I know it's not like you're unaware of Daring Fireball, or likely to not be caught up with it, but I thought Gruber's analysis of the Apple Watch was amazing, especially about the interplay with high-end watch culture. It has bold predictions that the high end prices are going to make pundits sputter - and how that will have to chart a new path between super-high-end watches that could become a family heirloom, and the usual gadget paradigm of "obsolete in a few years". Also, a lead in with how it goes against the egalitarian "kings and paupers alike can own the same high-quality product" nature of the iPhone.
If he's right, Apple is going to be making some bigger style gambles than I ever would have guessed. Kirk.

Kirk sums up John's writing well on this one. For all of the times I read Gruber and wonder if he is too much on the side of Apple, he really is brilliant at times.

PocketMoney is not currently available in the app store.

Put your wallet to bed  Voir?

According to Japanese news site Naver Matome, a surprising number of women in Japan have taken to putting their purses to bed after they come home at night, often in specially made futons complete with mini pillows and cute bed sheets.
The curious trend reportedly started after actor, essayist and TV personality Kazuyo Matsui talked of the importance of letting one

The iPhone 6 size will be fine for current iPhone users  Voir?

chunkyy.jpg

I received my first iPhone 6 case yesterday, a rather chunky leather wallet, and I must say that I was immediately impressed with how small it felt. It did not feel large at all and especially so when just holding the interior black plastic part which moulds around the phone.

From what I can gather, Apple has done a very good job of minimising the sense of the extra size and I suspect most current iPhone users, particularly those with a 5 or 5S, will be just fine. The 6 Plus, however, could be a step too far for some.
