Unboxing: Iphone 6 (vs. Iphone 5)6:54:00 PM
After more than 2 years of using an Iphone 5, I was able to replaced it with a new Iphone 6 . Thanks to hubby for granting my wish *wide smile* I was supposed to get the Iphone 6Plus but its too big for me and for sure I will be needing my two hands in using it. Which is a big NO for a mommy like me. *Let's talk about multitasking here.*
I got my Iphone 6 (in Gold - 128
Moving on to the unboxing! :)
The package includes the Iphone 6 unit, Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic, Lightning to USB Cable, 5W USB Power Adapter and the manual (inside the box).

Let us move on with the highlights of this post. Iphone 6 vs Iphone 5.
Iphone 5 was first released last September 2012. Meanwhile the Iphone 6 was September last year (2014). Iphone 6 measures 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm while Iphone 5 measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm. If you always watch videos like I do, you will appreciate a bigger screen. On the other hand, I was used to a slimmer handy phone so it took me time to grasp the Iphone 6 comfortably in just one hand.
Iphone 6 is heavier than the Iphone 5 for about 17 grams. Both main body are made of aluminum and so smooth that are almost slippery. In my case, I always use silicon case to avoid slipping it on my hand and to protect it from scratch/dent as well.
Left photo shows that the volume controls changed that accommodates its thin and round design of the new Iphone 6. On the right photo, the sleep/wake button placement has changed as well on the left side from its original location which is on top near the front face camera.
Design-wise, I love Iphone 6 for its thin and round design (and lightweight too!). And most importantly, I love its bigger screen. I prefer browsing using this rather than on my computer. If you have been an Iphone user for a long time, you won't feel a big difference on its performance atleast for me. Iphone 6 is one of the latest model (because Iphone 6s is coming) so expect that it has a higher resolution, better retina display and more responsive than the previous ones.
I'm not really a tech guru so I am sharing you the complete comparison HERE.
I hope this post helped you somehow. :)
