Five reasons why iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus cure Android envy

It’s us ‘Mericans who believe the “bigger is better” mantra, so we’re thrilled for the Hong Kong release of the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 tomorrow. Whether you’ve opted to preorder the iPhone 6 or plan to pound the pavement searching where to find the iPhone 6 in Hong Kong, we scoped out five reasons to own the new Apple iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Just when you thought the iPhone jumped the shark, there are reasons to love Apple again.

The battery no longer sucks. Literally.
It was getting to the point where we couldn’t leave the flat for a Pacific Coffee run without hauling the iPhone charger along, and for many of us ladies who can barely squeeze into skinny jeans, this just wasn’t an option. The new iPhone 6 carries a 1,440mAh battery, providing up to 14 hours of talk time and 250 hours of stand by. Upgrading to the iPhone 6 Plus enables users to 24 hours of talk time and 384 hours of stand by. All of these are quoted under the 3G network.

Uploads selfies three times faster.
Yes, we’re vain. And it’s this narcissism that made us second guess the Apple iPhone 5C because the upload rate was so….slow. In techie-speak, iPhone 6 supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac, which is three times faster than the older model. This faster wi-fi also allows us to chat to our mates back home with the wireless calling feature new to the iPhone 6.

Speaking of selfies, the Retina HK display makes the camera more awesome.
The iPhone 6 Plus comes with a full HD 1920 x 1820 pixel res (401 dpi) due to the new ion strengthened glass, whereas the iPhone 6 model carries a 1334 x 750 (326 dpi) px punch. Let us dumb it down for you – the picture resolution is sharper and clearer. Also equipped with Cinematic Video Stabilization and optical image stabilization, you’re sure to get great, polarized videos and images even when you get yourself into a low-light sitch that demands capturing.

Up to 128 gig storage for all of your music, photos, videos, etc.
By this point, you realize our transparency here. We want more storage memory to document post-happy hour blackmail evidence of bingefests and other obnoxious endeavours.

The Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus go on sale September 19, 2014 at Apple stores and major mobile service providers throughout Hong Kong. Available in gold, silver and grey, ranging in price from $5588 to $8188.
