2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality, with Apple's famed attention to detail
  • Beautiful design with premium choice of materials (unibody aluminium frame), solid construction, and iconic looks
  • Super slim
  • Still relatively compact and easy to grasp compared to flagship phones of other brands
  • Rounded sides, make it more comfortable to hold than for instance the chamfered beveled edge of the iPhone 5S
  • Brilliant display with potent brightness, wide viewing angles, and superb color accuracy
  • Buttery smooth, slick performance all-round, and even with graphics intensive mobile games
  • iOS 8 is beautiful and simple and brings in tons of functionality upgrades
  • Better spotlight search which now also has wikipedia, itunes and other results
  • "Hey, Siri" trigger for Siri voice commands
  • Improved multitasking menu which now also has recent contacts
  • The Health app is the most extensive health based app to date, that can pick data from both internal sensors, and 3rd party peripherals, and acts as a centralized hub for all of the user's health stats, including anything from their activity, weight, and heart rate, to blood pressure, blood glucose, and vitamin intake - all this data is also easily shareable with your doctor
  • Enhanced keyboard functionality with QuickType word prediction
  • Support for 3rd party keyboards
  • Buttery smooth web browser
  • The Touch ID biometric touch sensor is the best, most accurate, most responsive fingerprint sensor around
  • Support for VoLTE - voice over LTE, to provide wideband high-quality calls, where network supported
  • NFC and Apple Pay have the potential to revolutionize mobile payments
  • Stunning camera with simple usability, instant focus, tons of new features, and as usual, amazing picture/video quality
  • With its bigger & sharper display, powerful speaker, and snappy performance, the iPhone 6 enthralls when it comes to consuming multimedia content
  • Simple, effective image editing
  • Good call quality
  • Decent battery life
  • Premium, stylish, sleek design
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and can also be used to click images
  • Beautiful, large, immersive Full View Display (Infinity Display), that is great for watching videos
  • Vivo's FunTouch UI is decent, and largely inspired from iOS
  • Seamless performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking and gaming are managed well too
  • The phone also remains cool, even when pushed
  • Comes with dedicated two SIM card slots and a micro SD-Card slot as well (unlike the hybrid approach taken by some of the competition)
  • Excellent selfie camera with a portrait bokeh effect available for your selfies - one of the best selfie cameras on any phone
  • Rear camera is decent too (though not great) and takes decent images in daylight, producing pleasing colors
  • Decent 1080p videos - come out with good contrast and colors
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day with moderate use
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Screen resolution could have been higher
  • Lacks the optical image stabilization of the bigger, more expensive 6 Plus
  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Although daily performance is good, the phone is not meant for power users - there are better performing phones available in this price bracket
  • Rear camera performance in low light is average
  • No fast charging support
