Fly Or Die: Apple iPhone 6

We’re back with a new episode of Fly or Die and armed with the latest iPhone. Will John and I, longtime Apple users, give the iPhone 6 the green light?

Before we get to that, let’s take a look at the new features:

The new iPhone 6 has a noticeably larger 4.7-inch, 1334 x 750 ppi with 1400:1 contrast, making it one of Apple’s most beautiful mobile displays ever, perhaps rivaled only by big brother the iPhone 6 Plus. Under the hood, you’ll find an A8 64-bit processor, dual-band wifi, 20-band LTE support, and options for 16, 64, or 128 GB of onboard storage.

Darrell Etherington, our resident Apple guy, calls the new 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1.5 micron pixels “the best mobile camera, made better.”

But after a week of actually using the phone, it’s easy to forget about the specs.

Sure, the camera is noticeably better, and John is impressed with the extra real estate on the display. But I still haven’t found a way to get used to the size and the slippery edges, a transition that was much easier for the 5s. And John feels as though the true upgrade is to the iPhone 6 Plus.

Speaking of, we’ll be hitting you with the iPhone 6 Plus Fly or Die shortly, so stay tuned.
