phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 14 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • 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

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Screen resolution could have been higher
  • Lacks the optical image stabilization of the bigger, more expensive 6 Plus
