Apple iPhone 6 Unboxing & Hands-On (Gold)


Hi everyone. Muwen360 here doing with special
video and that’s right I am unboxing the brand new Apple iPhone 6. It was announced
earlier this month but today it’s finally available to the general public for purchase.
And right now unless you were the first ones to pre-order it, it might be a little tough
to get your hands on one of these due to the overwhelming demand but you can always go
to you your local Apple Store and see if they have spare units available which is what I
did so thankfully since the area in which I live in Connecticut is not that big, so
I was able to secure a unit relatively quick. The one I have here is the contract-free model
of the iPhone 6 which retails for 649, and of course it’s also available through nationwide
carriers on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint for $199 with a two year-agreement and I am speaking
in terms of US Dollars so pretty standard pricing scheme. You can also get the 6 in
three different color options. Space grey, silver and also Gold and I believe this one
is the gold version and we’ll verify that claim when we open the box. Also, you can
buy this in three different storage capacities, configurations, 16 gigs to start and the will
increase $100 when you to 64gigs, and all the way up to 128gigs of storage which is
pretty amazing. So that’s kind of a quick rundown of the pricing if you’re looking
into this. So this is the packaging for the iPhone 6. Kind of your typical Apple style
box with the all white color scheme. And I was kind of surprised that there is not a
photo of the phone on the front here so that’s pretty weird and also on the sides of the
box we simply have the word “iPhone” written with the Apple Logo and I was kind of expecting
it to specify that it’s the “iPhone 6” instead of just writing “iPhone” but I guess that’s
how they’re doing this time. Buy anyways, On the back we have some brief information
about the device which I’ll talk about as well, and also just some technical information
about the phone located towards the bottom of the box. So enough talking, let me first
rip off this plastic wrap that’s covering the box. Here we go. Now let me just separate
the top from the bottom. And there you go. This is the Apple iPhone 6. Let’s get this
phone out. So this is the iPhone 6, the Gold version so I was right. It feels nice in the
hand, Pretty thin and light now but I’ll set this to the side for now and take a look at
what else we receive in the box. So let’s pull this tab. This is just a carton for the
phone. This is the information and the paperwork. So we get a iPhone 6 quick start guide sort
of. iPhone info and also two Apple stickers. And then we get the wall charger, USB wall
charger. The lightning USB cable and the lightning to USB cable and also the Apple EarPods for
your music needs. So that’s really all we get inside the box. So now let’s bring over
the iPhone 6 itself and first of all it feels really good hold and it feels extremely solid
as well. It’s made of mostly metal of course and the build quality is absolutely phenomenal.
The front glass and the back metal has this smooth texture that makes it comfortable to
hold. The front glass as you can see, folds slightly around the edges so I guess the sharp
hard edges found on previous iPhones are gone. It also feels much thinner than before so
that’s also really nice. But Personally, I prefer the hard sharp edges, found on the
iPhone 5S for example because I liked how the hard edges provided me with a better grip
of the phone so I can have a sturdy of it. But I don’t hate the new design on the 6,
I just think the hard edges were better at least for me. The iPhone is also much bigger
in terms of size. It now sports a 4.7 inch screen increased from the 4 inch screen size
we’ve seen for the last severl years. And I think 4.7 inches is a great size for phones
it’s kind of that middle ground if you will, between 4.5 inches which is on the smaller
side and the 5 inches that’s on the bigger side. Especially at 4.7 inches, it’s very
portable and also you can easily use it with just one hand and it’s also a decent size
for content consumption like watching videos for example. Whereas with 4.5 inches it’s
portable, yes but a little bit on the smaller side for enjoying videos for example and whereas
with 5 inches yes, it’s a nice big display to watch all the videos you want, but you
kind of sacrifice that portability. So 4.7 inches is a great form factor. And also the
display is now referred to as a Retina HD display. It’s got a resolution of 1334 by
750 with a pixel density at 326 pixels per inch so not quite 1080P HD but still pretty
good. Around the device, starting with the left side, we have the ring/silent switch,
volume up and down keys, nothing up top. On the right, we have the on, off, sleep, and
wake button as well as the sim card tray. At the bottom, 3.5 millimeter headphone jack,
microphone hole. Lightning connector, and also the speakers. 1.2 megapixel Facetime
camera with 720p HD video recording, the ambient light sensor, and also the earpiece. Towards
the bottom. we have the home button which also doubles up as the Touch ID sensor. 8
megapixel iSight camera on the back with 1080p HD video recording capabilities at 30 or 60
frames per second. Something to mention is the new iSight camera has this bulge so it’s
kind of protruding outwards. But next to that we have another microphone and the LED flash.
So now let’s go ahead and actually power on the device. There you go, it’s powering up
the Apple logo. Initial setup so it’s kind of taking a while I guess. Hello. Slide to
to setup. Choose English. United States. Choose my WiFi connection. So let me enter in my
WiFi password. Hit Join. May take a few minutes to activate your iPhone. Enable location services.
Setup as new iPhone. I’ll skip this step. I’ll just enter that in later. Terms and conditions.
Accept. Agree. Touch ID. Set up Touch ID later. Don’t add passcode. I’ll just not add a passcode.
I’ll add it later. Continue so I can bring you guys the home screen. Use Siri. Automatically
send. Share with app developers. i’ll do zoomed. Next. Welcome to iPhone. Get started. Alright
so this is the home screen of the iPhone 6. As you can see it’s running the latest version
of iOS. It’s iOS 8. Pre-installed out of the box.on the iPhone 6. Really nice and again
the screen is super, super sharp and it’s definitely look like a great phone. So this
is it for this unboxing video of the iPhone 6. Thank so much for watching. Please, please
