Reasons To Buy an iPhone 6S Instead Of iPhone 8 or iPhone X

iPhone 6S is one of the mobile phones the longest lived especially among Apple’s products. Apple usually offers only the previous model iPhone when it announces a new model; however, in this case something seems to change. From 6S to iPhone 8 and iPhone X, all models are now available on Apple’s official website. But, now comes up a question: Which model to buy? This time we will be more on side of iPhone 6S.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6S instead of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The price of iPhone 6S

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than its new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

iPhone 8 with 64 GB of storage: $700.

iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage: $800.

iPhone X with 64 GB of storage: $1,000.

However, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

iPhone 6S with 32 GB of storage: $450.

iPhone 6S Plus with 32 GB of storage: $550.

Excellent Design

iPhone 6S has an excellent design – and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.

Apple added improvements to the iPhone 8’s and iPhone X’s screens, including TrueTone, which adjusts the overall color temperature to match the lighting in your surrounding, and a wide color gamut for richer colors.

At the same time, the screen on the iPhone 6S is still excellent. The screen on that phone has the same sharpness and resolution as the new iPhone 8, and it reproduces colors just fine for browsing the web, using apps, watching videos, looking at photos, and playing games.

Is iPhone A Good Choice For You and Which iPhone To Buy?

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus finally took their place in stores. However the audience waiting for the new iPhone to change the phone is facing a serious dilemma because there is an iPhone X on the horizon and it is not far away.

Which iPhone is a good choice for you? Is the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus the classic sequel or is it iPhone X, which is introduced as the future of smart phones and offers more than a standard improvement? This dilemma is Apple’s problem as well as the new iPhone users.

How does Apple manage this dilemma?

Some of the users wait 1-2 years to replace their current iPhone with the latest iPhone version. But there is also another group of users that do not hesitate to wait for 2-3 years until the device’s battery life runs out.

Apple taught iPhone users to expect for a “new and familiar” blend of upgrades. Many people say that they will buy the familiar iPhone 8, despite what the iPhone X will offer. We will see if Apple’s iPhone X will make more than complicating the iPhone product line. But no one doubts that iPhone 8 will have a huge sales success.

iPhone X or iPhone 8

Many tech-savvy people expect the iPhone 8, but they plan to buy an iPhone X as soon as possible as many features on the iPhone 8 Plus are also available on the iPhone X despite the smaller size. If your hands are small for using the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X is just for you.

Some of us want the iPhone X, and some of us are looking to continue on the road with the familiar and new iPhone 8. In either case, Apple is winning. That’s why Apple’s decision to announce three new phones at once will be good for Apple. It’s obvious that Apple will occupy the scene for smart phones this fall.

Apple Introduced Fast Charging But It Costs Something

The most popular devices of the last month – probably – iPhone X comes with the feature of fast charging. It only takes 30 mins to charge the battery up to 50%. Sounds cool! But let’s be more clear on this: When you buy an iPhone X — or iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which support the same feature — you don’t get fast charging out of the box.

They come with a USB Power Adapter which likely means USB-A. So users will have to buy a separate adapter, and the cheapest USB-C Power Adapter Apple is selling — the 29W model — costs $49 in Apple Store.

Worse, you’ll need a new cable, too. The new iPhones come with a Lightning to USB Cable adapter, but you’ll need Apple’s USB-C to Lightning Cable adapter, which starts from $25 in the Apple Store.

The iPhone X is an expensive step to the unknown

iPhone X is introduced the forward-looking, innovative new iPhone: the future of smartphone. But the iPhone X is just a beginning for many compromises as Apple seemingly wasn’t able to get expected features ready in time. For example a distance wireless charging, but we have to live with and pay for fast charging feature for now. No one dies because of the lack of these features. But now that we know all of iPhone X’s features, is it a good buy? This turns into the main question.

And yes, it’s expensive. I don’t think that’s a problem in itself — the most expensive iPhone variants have often been the first to sell out. But a lot of people simply won’t be able to dish out $999 + tax on a phone. This time it is more than a choice for many people around the world.  On the other hand, iPhone X likely a little better than their predecessors, which were pretty great. Millions will buy them, and love them.

Apple Watch Series 3 With Built-in Cellular, Powerful Enhancements

Although everybody have been talking about iPhone X lately, Apple announced also other amendments in their products and Apple Watch Series 3 is one of them.

Apple today announced that they added built-in cellular to the world’s number one watch,namely Watch Series 3. Disregarding where you are, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows you to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more. For all these features, you will not even need an iPhone nearby.

“We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “Apple Watch Series 3 combined with the power of watchOS 4 is the ultimate device for a healthy life.”

Advanced Technology in Apple Watch

The latest generation of Apple Watch is not only attractive by the trendy design but also has an attraction with its advanced technology. Watch users can make cellular calls directly with Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) and, when paired with AirPods, enjoy a seamless and fully wireless experience. Considering wireless charging (hopefully) of iPhones, it seems company works hard on wires – to get rid of them!

Apple also pioneered an industry-first antenna design that uses the display itself as both a transmitting and receiving element for LTE and UMTS, while introducing a built-in eSIM that is over one-hundredth the size of a traditional SIM card, making over-the-air activation possible without compromising space.

Listen to your favorite playlist on watch

watchOS 4 offers a redesigned Music app and new Radio app to enable users listen to their favorite playlists whenever and wherever they want. The brand knows how to attract their customers. The redesigned Music app experience automatically syncs playlists like New Music Mix and Favorites Mix, along with the user’s most listened to music. Later this fall, Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) will stream music, giving users access to any song from Apple Music, straight from the wrist. The new Radio app also enables listeners to access Beats 1 live or any Apple Music radio station while away from iPhone or Wi-Fi.

Where Can I Buy the Cheapest iPhone, and Is It Trustworthy?

As we all know now, iPhone has become the famous product of the globe. It is sold and bought in 33 countries around the world. Yet as we also know that prices are highly varied. Thus, if one wants to get a brand-new iPhone (any model) with an affordable price, one needs to track down the best deals.

In May, Deutsch Bank has published the report, Mapping the World’s Best Prices, showing different iPhone prices around the world. While it is logical to assume that Hong Kong would be the best option to buy the cheapest iPhone since the product is manufactured in China and first transported through there, the report shows otherwise.

The difference in the VAT (value added taxes), Apple’s pricing policy and of course, the currency appreciations cause difference in the prices. It seems that US has the lead in the cheapest prices while Turkey seems to be the most expensive country to buy one, with Brazil following it just behind. Yet still, one needs to know that US prices in the list do not include sales taxes while the most of Europe does, which makes US prices appear lower than they really are.

Where is the cheapest iPhone?

While considering the best price, relying only on the data from Apple’s website will not suffice. Not because of the difference in the tax regulations, customs and currency issues, there are also technical requirements for your iPhone to function well in your own country. Some features like network configurations and 3G/4G frequency depends on the country the phone is used. Likewise, some specific applications may not be functioning in your home.

Warranty is another issue, you need to check if it is country specific or not. Lastly, even though the service is available for your phone, the spare parts may not be in your reach which may turn out to be a major problem. It is better you ask first to your local store about the best functioning model so that your cheap foreign iPhone will not cost a bomb at home.

Apple Macbook Air vs Macbook Pro Screen Comparison and Macbook Prices

Are you hesitating between buying a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro? In this article I try to compare the two devices in different directions and to help our readers during the decision making process. Also, I will inform you of Macbook prices around the world.

So, let’s begin!

Which one should I buy Air or Pro?

This question is one of the first-ever questions that anyone who decides to buy a Mac has – maybe after Macbook prices. This is caused by the fact that  MacBook Pro’s retina screen offers a high screen quality and performance while MacBook Air catches you with the lightness and slimness.

At first glance, the MacBook Air stands out with its lightness, slimness and battery life reaching up to 12 hours, while the retina display MacBook Pro shines with its 9-hour battery life, despite its screen quality, performance and much more compact than its predecessor.

Screen Quality and Resolution

Of course, one of the most important differences between MacBook Air and MacBook Pro is the screen. The screen of both products is very good. Although both screens are actually 13.3-inches, I chose to mention 13-inches to make reading easier throughout the text.

The 13-inch MacBook Air’s screen is in 16:10 format, with a resolution of 1440 × 900 pixels and a pixel value of 128 ppi per inch. On a normal non-retina MacBook Pro, this value is 113. So, we might say that MacBook Air has compressed more pixels into the same area.

The MacBook Pro with a 13-inch Retina Display also has a 16:10 format display, a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels, and a pixel count of 227 pixels per inch. This is also what lies behind the “retina display.” The pixel is so small that it is almost impossible to see the screen with the naked eye. Macbook prices give a hint of such differences.But what’s interesting is that the icons and text on the 13-inch MacBook Air’s screen are a bit smaller than the 13-inch MacBook Pro. This is because the actual resolution on the retina is 1280 × 800. That is, each pixel on the non-retina screen represents 4 pixels on the retina. Thus, as the image sharpness increases, the size and size of the icons remain constant.

The price of MacBook Air and Macbook Pro

The price of MacBook Air and Macbook Pro varies from country to country as the other Apple product prices. MacBook Pro costs USD 1587 in Australia, USD 1734 in Belgium, USD 1184 in Japan while Macbook Air costs USD 1190 in Australia, USD 1311 in Belgium, USD 908 in Japan. You can find more information about price comparison of MacBooks considering the countries.

Apple Product Prices Comparison Is A Big Deal, So How Apple Sets The Prices?

Comparing the prices and the features of electronics can be useful because there are many factors to set them. Apple iPhone phones are sold all over the world. But globally, there is no recommended price in every country and they are priced according to economic conditions. Apple product prices comparison can be interesting in any ways as these economic sanctions are causing the phone to have different price tags that cost a little many dollars. If you are curious about the price difference between countries selling iPhone in the world, let us take you here.

Apple product prices comparison

First of all, as many other products, we know that labor, logistics, marketing and advertising prices have been added to the cost of an electronic product. Of course, a profit share is put on them. But these factors, as well as the country’s electronic tax payers, luxury consumption or private consumption taxes, added value percentages are added to the difference between the naked cost of the product.Apple Product Prices Comparison

This also applies to iPhone without exception. Let’s have a look at Apple product price comparison closer. An example is that an iPhone in the US is equivalent to 1.6 per cent of a family budget of 4 people, which is 39.3 per cent for Indonesia.

The iPhone 7, which has a big market in China, sells for 807.66 USD. In Russia, 900.83 USD is covers the price to buy this device.

It is possible to get the iPhone 7 in the USA for 649 USD, in Norway for 934.10 USD,in the Philippines for 737.01, in Italy for 939.62 USD and in France for 904.34 USD. A family in Indonesia can get 2 iPhones with 39% of annual income, but this percentage is equivalent to 63 iPhones in the US. In Turkey, the annual income is only 7 percent of people who own one iPhone 6.

27 per cent of the price of an iPhone 6 in Turkey is taxed by the state. In this case, the state is making more money than most technology companies such as Sony, SanDisk, LG and so on which are producing parts of an iPhone 6 device. This situation is not special for Turkey!

Feature of Facial Recognition in iPhone 8 Goes Beyond The Expectation

iPhone 8 has already become very popular thanks to the rumors before the launch of the new device. New information has been released about the innovations that will be introduced with the iPhone 8. How much is iPhone 8? What are the best features of iPhone 8? This time Apple seems to have worked hard for the iPhone 8 in terms of facial recognition features. The features that Apple will offer along with iPhone 8 continue to evolve as the HomePod firmware’s codes are reviewed. The last detail is about the iPhone 8 facial recognition features.

Powerful facial recognition

Developer Guilherme Rambo shared on the Twitter account what the iPhone 8 can do with face detection. Accordingly, iPhone 8 will be able to provide authorization for Apple Pay payments with face identification. Moreover, it is possible to record more than one face, such as in Touch ID Technology, and to access third party applications with this new layer of security.

Considering the Pearl code name that Apple uses for facial recognition in iPhone 8, the string “numerofAppsUsingPearl” in a line of code references indicates that third-party applications will also be able to access the facial recognition function, and that can take place of passwords. In this sense, the facial recognition was formed with the expectation that the Touch ID could take its place completely. In addition, it is foreseen that both front and rear cameras may have the face recognition feature.

The price of iPhone 8

From the Apple HomePod firmware software to the present, the iPhone 8 design, infrared-based face detection features, split status bar, touch screen wake-up and new SmartCamera functions and much more. One another thing that matters about the phone is the price of iPhone 8. So, how much will iPhone 8 be priced. As far as we know, it will be priced between $850 and $1,200 in the US.

Now Apple has yet to confirm any of these. So we can say that these are just assumptions. How exactly it will be implemented remains to be seen, but hopefully Apple will have something official for us soon.

Does Apple Re-Offer Nostalgic iPod Mini On Online Store?

Apple made a surprise for their long-term users with reappearance of nostalgic iPod on Apple’s website in Singapore. iPod minis, that Apple stopped producing 12 years ago, were available to ship in 2 or 3 weeks. There was no upgrade, the device was as it was released in February 2005 – with color alternatives of blue, green, pink and silver and storage alternatives of 4GB and 6 GB. This is second-generation models of iPod born in 2005, nothing younger.

iPod minis’ life was a pretty short one, lasting until the appearance of iPod nano in September 2005. And, in the same way, its second appearance lasted very short (like a few hours this time), too.

iPod Nano

What is the real news about iPod?

Actually, iPod mini felt like an illusion, on the other hand removal of iPod nano and iPod shuffle from the official website and online store around the world is a real thing. For now, it appears the iPod nano and iPod shuffle are still available to purchase at many Apple Stores and other resellers, but that likely won’t be the case for too much longer. From now on, iPod touch continues its way on its own with two different storage alternatives of 32GB and 128 GB and color alternatives of space gray, blue, gold, pink and silver.

The last update for iPod nano was in 2012 and iPod shuffle in 2010, while iPod touch was updated in July 2016 with an A8 chip and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

A8 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 5 stunning colors.

Here is how Apple mentions iPod touch in the official website:

To enhance your music experience even more, Apple Music is available on your iPod touch, right in the Music app.


Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.


This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch — so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before — and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback

Infographic: 6 Good Reasons To Buy An iPhone 7

The reasons to buy an iPhone 7 are countless, along with reasons not to buy one. This is why you have to think more than twice before the purchase. All the most popular and chosen mobile phones have many pros and cons, so you have to decide which pros are important to you and which cons can be ignored.

Here is the pros of iPhone 7:

Why To Buy an iphone 7
Why To Buy an iphone 7

Increased Battery Size

iPhone 7 with 14 % more space offers 2 hours longer usage. Battery is one of the biggest problems in the times of technology. Luckily, the axing of the headphone jack means more space for battery. 14% more space equals to upping the overall size to 1955mAh.

Basic Storage Options

The basic storage option has doubled to 32GB. So upgraders are effectively getting an extra 16GB of storage for free. This was one of the most common complaints about Apple products. Now, the situation seems to get better.

Easy To Use

iPhone is still the easiest phone to use by far with no separate app drawer for your apps. Everything is simple and there is no need to go long way to reach an application. It is fast and clear.

Updates

All iPhone owners can update to the latest version of iOS since day 1 including iPhone 7. It is an option to update it or not. There is a fact that iPhone requires regular updates for making use of the latest features, while you do not have upgrade your device in case when you are good with less features.

Water Resistance

Good news for long-standing iPhone users looking to upgrade to the iPhone 7: it’s water resistant, but, that doesn’t mean salt water. Taking your phone into the sea for some underwater shots will not give what you expect. So, watch out!

Beautiful Design

Apple products are always designed in a simple style and they win the battle in term of beauty. Apple gives the expectation considering the design with iPhone 7, too.

iPhone 7 or Galaxy S8: Which Is The One For You?

Samsung and Apple are really good competitors on the market of smart phone, considering the hesitation of users between Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7? If you are planning to buy a smart phone of high technology, you must consider both Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 for many reasons.

To begin with, they both are the ground shaking devices of the year 2017. A review in terms of displays and design might be helpful for you to decide on the one for you although there are many other features to compare and contrast. Let’s start!

iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S8
iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S8

Display

  • Galaxy S8: 5.8-inch Super AMOLED, 2960 x 1440 pixels (570 ppi pixel density), 83.6% screen-to-body ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • iPhone 7: 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, 1334 x 750 pixels (326 ppi), 65.6% screen-to-body ratio

Bigger is not always better. So the difference of the sizes can be ignored for a general saying. However, Samsung seems to win iPhone considering brightness and resolution. Its OLED ‘Infinity Display’ is apparently brighter and sharper than iPhone 7’s LCD Retina Display. The screen is also protected against scratches with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. On the other hand, for a longer battery life, you need to reduce the resolution to 2220 x 1080 which is still higher than Apple’s product.

Design

  • Galaxy S8: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm (5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31-inch), 155g (5.36 oz)
  • iPhone 7: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in) and 138 g (4.87 oz)

iPhone has the power of a more durable aluminum back while both phones are water and dust resistant. However, this common feature is not an evolution in this time of high technology. Even though iPhone 7 is stronger at some point, the screen-to-case ratio is still very low compared to its rival. The 65.6% screen-case ratio is really too much comparing with the Galaxy S8 with 84.2 screen-case ratio. Other than that, Apple’s new smartphone is criticized for its design lines because it is not different from previous models.

Apple iOS 10.3.2: Is It A Good Idea To Upgrade Your Device

As we all know from the previous iOS 10 releases, iOS 10.3.2 is also compatible with the iPhone 5 or later, iPad 4 or later and the 6th generation iPod touch or later. In total, Apple iOS 10.3.2 seems to have updated all iOS 10-compatible devices.The size of iOS 10.3.2 varies depending on which device you own, basically between 150-200MB. If you are intereseted, you can update your device by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.

Apple iOS 10.3.2 offers good features

What Apple cares most for the updates is security bugs as their reputation for not being very secure is world-wide.  Here is how Apple announced the iOS 10.3.1 giving signs of their effort to eliminate all the bugs in software:

“iOS 10.3.2 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad.”

Apple’s ‘30% Battery Bug’ still continues and keeps affecting users in a negative way as well as Touch ID errors. However, we cannot deny that there are some improvements like removal of the long running 5GHz WiFi bug.

Should I upgrade to iOS 10.3.2?
Should I upgrade to iOS 10.3.2?

There are two main security issues with Apple found in iBooks. Onthewire reports “One of the vulnerabilities could allow a malicious book file to open any website without permission, while the other could let an application execute arbitrary code with root privileges.” This bug is a serious one that means a real trouble with your device and all the information in it.

Should I install iOS 10.3.2?

So what will we do: install it or not? There are plenty of reasons to consider installing iOS 10.3.2 on your device, but there are also some reasons to wait for it. For a better security in calls, contacts, texts, and emails you can install the new version. Also, App support is a good reason to upgrade your device along with having more free space.

On the other hand, wait for a while if you are traveling or if you are not sure about a change in your device. It will not be a big loss to wait until you are ready.

What Is This Little Hole Next To The Rear Camera?

Some iPhone models have a small mysterious hole next to the rear camera lens. You may have never noticed before, but this hole serves a very important purpose. Upon realizing how unknown this part of some iPhone models is, we decided to talk about this in our blog post.

You might not have noticed that the mysterious hole that iPhones have next to the rear camera because of the fact that it is so small. It also is not remarkable. So, probably you have never wonder about this. Let us tell you the truth: The triple microphone configuration continues on all devices with the launch of the iPhone 5 in 2012. In short, this hole is actually a microphone. Anyone surprised?

A Hole Cooperating Siri and Google Now

This microphone, along with the camera, also helps voice recognition, which is becoming more and more important with the popularity of virtual assistants such as Siri and Google Now.

If you think that microphones do not perform as well as they should, Apple can explain how to test microphones in this way:

“To test the primary microphone at the bottom of the iPhone, open Voice Memos and tap the recording icon, then talk to the microphone and touch the play icon to play the recording.If you can hear your voice clearly, your primary microphone is solid.

If your voice is weak when you are using the loudspeaker during a call, make sure your microphones are not blocked.

If the voices in the video recordings go out or if Siri does not hear you, make sure your microphone is not turned off by the rear camera. ”

If you have problems with the tests, you can take your phone to an authorized service as it is one of the basic features to be used in your iPhone.

iPad Pro Product Review

Apple recently unveiled a new iPad Pro whose prices are starting from USD 614.24 in Japan up to USD 1551.69. Actually, the new model is an alternative to 9.7-inch iPad Pro offering a larger screen – 10.5-inch Retina display.The larger screen means Apple can now display a full-size keyboard on-screen, and has also managed to keep the weight at 477g. The new iPad Pro has a more powerful processor, and better cameras. The new iPad Pro comes with the same 12-megapixel OIS-enabled camera as the iPhone 7. You can capture and edit 4K video, too, and the front-facing camera has also been upgraded.

What is good in the new iPad Pro is striking with its faster performance and a brighter screen than the model it replaces, at a price that’s about half as much as the iPad Pro. It is also easier to use as a result of the integration between the hardware, software and App Store. What is bad in the new iPad Pro is that it is a little thicker and accordingly heavier.

“These are by far the most powerful iPads we’ve ever created with the world’s most advanced displays featuring ProMotion, the powerful new A10X Fusion chip and the advanced camera system of iPhone 7,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “Together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad.”

The impressive, upgraded Retina show in iPad Pro components ProMotion, another innovation for scrolling, more prominent responsiveness and smoother movement content. With ProMotion, Apple Pencil is significantly more responsive with an industry-best, 20-millisecond idleness for considerably more liquid and characteristic drawing. Advancement likewise enhances show quality and decreases control utilization via consequently altering the show invigorate rate to coordinate the development of the substance. The iPad Pro is offered in Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold options.

iPhone 7 Price Comparison Across The World

Apple products cost different amounts across the world, so it can be useful to be informed of these prices. Turkey seems to be the most expensive place in the world to buy a new iPhone 7 with a price of USD 1364. It is almost USD 500 higher than United States in 256 GB, which is almost the amount enough to buy an iPhone 7 32 GB in United States. I mean, there is a huge gap between countries. You can have a look at Apple Flight for price comparison of all Apple products.

In general, Europe has the highest offers in the world for a new iPhone 7 comparing with United States, Japan, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong etc. On the other hand, the situation becomes more complicated considering the sales taxes as US and Canada do not include it. This is why, we cannot have an exact comparison.

iPhone 7 Price Comparison Across The World

State by state variations also affect the prices in United States. In every other state, you will see a different amount requested. Prices on the US Apple Store do not include sales tax as that is a variable depending on the state. However, country by country variations are affected by many things including foreign exchange rates, local sales taxes etc.

Features of iPhone 7

Let’s have a look at iPhone 7 considering technical features of the device. Charge is one of the problems of our era, and Apple says that the 7’s battery lasts two hours longer than the iPhone 6. It comes in jet black, black, gold, silver, rose gold color alternatives.
