Recently, the world-renowned consumer electronics corporation, Apple, released its newest editions of the iPhone. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014.
The eighth generation of the iPhone features some major changes, including the design and display. However, the biggest change is the size. The iPhone 6 measures 4.7 inches diagonally while the iPhone 6 Plus is an impressive 5.5 inches.
“I like the new phone because it is the size of a Samsung Galaxy phone but it has the iPhone layout,” said freshman Morgan Green.
While size seems to be a draw to the new version, some disagree with the change.
“We started off with giant phones then they progressively got smaller and more efficient, but now we are going back to the bigger phones again. The size is unnecessary,” said freshman Grace Delorme.
With all the updated additions and the major increase in size, consumers are wondering, is it all going to be worth it.
For most, the iPhones prove to be a bit over budget with prices starting at $200 and exceeding $800.
“The price is a bit ridiculous for a cell phone. Most computers are less than that,” shared Delorme.
“The price seems logical for the size and the amount of things it’s capable of now,” said Green.
In the first three days of sales, Apple reported selling over 10 million phones.
