Feb 20, 2015-
Given the craze of Nepali gadget lovers to own the iPhone 6 or the 6 Plus soon after its launch on September 19, 2014, it is safe to say that the Apple loyalty is showing no signs of faltering. At least, not just yet. Users share their reviews.
1. Handle with care.
The shiny aluminum body of iPhone 6 may be pretty impressive, but that might just be one of the risks.
Adarsh Karki: I have a knack of letting my phone slip more often than I can remember. I have been told to put a cover on it, but the phone is so sleek, that any case or cover would make it less appealing.
Quick Fact: Dropping from hand, into the sink, from lap, and off the table happens to be top four iPhone accident scenarios. — a survey by SquareTrade.
2. Big on features, but not on size.
Apple has bumped iPhone 6 up in size as compared to its predecessor 5s by 0.7”. We’re not talking about the iPhone 6 Plus here.
Adarsh Karki: The phone fits perfectly in my hand. I have internet, e-mail, and apps within the reach of my fingertips—just the way I like it.
Alok Rana: I had expected it to be bigger. I like the new Home button that comes with the fingerprint identity sensor—a hurdle for my phone trespassers.
Ashis Jaspau: It is big enough to not stick out of my pocket. So, I am quite okay.
3. A camera made for shutterbugs.
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus come with three additional features: timelapse mode, slow-motion video mode and continous AF—all packed within its 8MP, f/2.2 camera.
Charu Shrestha Malhotra: Taking pictures and videos was never this easy and comfortable even witth the bump in the screen size.
Adarsh Karki: Of all things, I like the creative features of its camera. In fact, I have used its slow-motion feature for one of my video projects.
Ashis Jaspau: The camera works faster compared to its predecessors, and, of course, takes great pictures.
4. Elegant design and superior hardware.
Charu Shrestha Malhotra: Despite being so massive in size, the iPhone 6 Plus is not at all bulky. The slim design makes it look chic and the light-weight adds to its portability.
Alok Rana: The smooth and slim design complements the user’s character. In a way, you are upgrading yourself with an iPhone 6.
Ashis Jaspau: The new processor makes everything faster than before. The battery life has been boosted considerably, but power users may need to charge more often.
5. Expensive to buy and maintain.
That mix of style and durability also means a hefty price tag.
Charu Shrestha Malhotra: I found this upgrade to be pretty expensive, but the tech savvy in me couldn’t help getting one. Considering the overall experience, I really feel the price could have been cheaper.
Adarsh Karki: The cost for replacing my shattered screen was Rs. 25,000. The replacement was not available on stock; so they had to order it.
Alok Rana: Nepal does not have an Apple Store yet, so the market price is more expensive than what it should be.
Quick Fact: The damaged iPhones have cost Americans $5.9 billion since 2007.
