The feel of the blackberry z3 is actually quite luxurious although it is made of plastic and although some people might classify the phone as a budget phone, we can truly say that we did not get that feel and we can only congratulate Blackberry on developing a well functional smartphone at a relatively good price for consumers.

Today we are going to be looking at the Iphone 6 in closer detail and giving you all the pros and cons (if any) regarding this smartphone.

As we currently use a variety of smartphones, the iphone 6 is one of the phones we use on a daily basis, so we have come to know this amazing smartphone very well and we can only give you our honest feedback regarding what we have experience on a day to day use.

We started using the iphone 4 back in the day and we can truly say that the new iphone 6 is one of the best phones Apple has created to date and they just continue to amaze us as the years go on.

Some of the things we can just mention offhand about this phone compared to previous models is that the iphone 6 has a better battery and improved processor and with the new plus models have the option for the much larger screen, but even the standard model has an improved screen size and this makes it much more comfortable to browse and use daily.

The general feel of the phone is great and with the 6.9 mm thickness is makes it very easy to handle and store in your pocket or handbag. When looking at the iphone 6 and its internal storage, you see that this rage has the larger 128 GB included, which offer you much more space to save you photos, music etc. on.

The previous models only went to 64 GB. The iphone 6 is also slightly heavier than the iphone 5 and comes in at 129g.

Overall our review is that the Iphone 6 still leads the pack for smartphones and while the others are catching up quite fast, it still remains one of the most popular phones worldwide, but locally in South Africa it seems that Blackberry and Samsung is still leading the pack.
