If you are a hard-core fan of all Apple products and you still have not purchased the brand new iPhone, it might be because you are still unsure about this new device. Indeed, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the most recent devices launched by Apple this year. But are they really worth it?

Is the buzz around this new phone really that important of an issue? After all, the iPhone 5 is still on the market – sometimes sold at a really, really great price – and it is still a great device. Every new phone has interesting perks but they also can have drawbacks. That is why you must analyze the pros and cons before buying a new device. We have therefore decided to help you see what those are before you make your decision.

The size of the iPhone 6 

One of the most important changes is certainly the bigger size of the device. The iPhone 6’s 4.7 inches screen makes it a lot bulkier than its predecessors, although it is slightly thinner.

Of course, this new size can be both a good and a bad thing. On one hand, the consumers looking for an alternative to Android’s phablets – a crossover between a tablet and a phone – now have another great Apple option,  with the iPhone 6 Plus. On the other hand, the iPhone’s smaller size was an interesting solution for people looking for a smaller phone with great features.

Little changes, big difference

Apple also improved the quality of both the camera and the antenna, as well as lengthened the battery’s life span. Even if they are only small changes, these improvements can greatly influence a consumer to go ahead and buy the new product.

A better camera allows the iPhone to be a lot more versatile and an improved antenna means that you will get a better LTE or Wi-Fi connection. Indeed, wherever you are, great reception is one important aspect to take into account. Also, since most smartphones tend to take a lot of energy, the extended battery life is one of the best improvements.

Fragile new design for the iPhone 6

The iPhone 6’s sleek and sophisticated design makes it the thinnest phone ever produced by Apple. Be careful, however, since some people have had one nasty surprise. The iPhone 6 seems to be a lot more fragile than the iPhone 5 and you might experience some “bending issues” with your new phone. If you really want to get yourself an iPhone 6, make sure you buy a protective case.

Not sure about buying the iPhone 6?

If you need to replace your phone with a better device but still wish to get an iPhone without having to break the bank for a new product, the iPhone 5 can be very well worth it. Also, it is also possible to find a used iPhone 5 at a really great price, which will allow you to save even more money.

If you are looking for a powerful device that can run iOS 8 smoothly, the iPhone 5 is the perfect device for you.
