Most people are usually hesitant about buying phones that were released a few years back. While the iPhone 6 is not the latest phone from Apple in Kenya, it definitely still holds some water, we strongly recommend buying it, if its in your price range.
We look at the price of Apple iPhone 6 in Kenya and list all the specifications.
IPhone 6 64 GB: Kshs. 77,000
128GB: Kshs. 80,000
16GB: Kshs. 75,000
What is the screen quality of iPhone 6?
With a screen resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels its screen can be considered a bit too outdated.
What you should know is that you cannot judge the quality of the iPhone based on the resolution of the screen alone.
If you consider the price of iPhone 6 in Kenya, it is still a worthy buy in 2017.
The colors displayed are vivid and the pixel density is a ~326 ppi. This, coupled with the resolution leads to true color representation of not only displayed images but also photos taken from the camera.
The screen is also protected using ion strengthened glass. This prevents breakage from minor falls. Even today, the screen of the iPhone 6 is considerably better than its other competitors in the market.
Does it offer 4G?
Yes, the iPhone has 4G. With this, you are able to enjoy fast internet from Safaricom in Kenya.
In the course of 2017, we are hoping the other service providers will up their game and offer the same.
Nevertheless, Safaricom should also improve the 4G they are offering to many parts of Kenya. Currently only selected urban areas are able to access the services.
Does it run games smoothly?
Games are normally the most demanding on a phones hardware. So when we talk about them we are also including other apps.
Since it has only 1GB of ram, many people may be doubting the capabilities of the iPhone 6. Well, they are wrong.
Even though a couple of years have since passed from its release.
It is still the beast it was upon its release. The only devices outdoing these phones are still the iphones themselves.
What internal memory size should you buy?
When Apple release their phones, they are usually in come in 3 internal memory sizes. This is also the case with this phone. firstly, there is the 16GB option.
People moving from android devices will find this very limiting to use since they are used to expanding the storage capacity.
Settling for this choice, should be only if you have a limited budget.
Then a 64GB choice also exists. This is really appropriate for anyone since you will have the space to download as many apps as you like without worrying about filling up the device. You will also be able to take multiple photographs and videos.
Lastly, the ultimate choice is the 128GB capacity one. You should only buy this option in Kenya if you are sure that you will fill up more than half of it.
If purchasing an iPhone in Kenya for photography is one of your major decision making point, definitely go with this option since you won’t worry too much about the consequence of taking a photo of one object 50 times.
Does the battery last?
I’ve known avid android fanboys who straight up laugh at the meagre size of its battery. The 1810 mAh battery they say is an injustice to the smartphone community.
This is when they are rocking phone that are above 4000 mAh in juice storage.
Then when the end of the day comes around, they are surprised that the phone still has some flowing electrons yet theirs is about to go off. so you see, Apple are not stupid when they settle for the battery capacity.
This is because they have carefully measured and want to balance every aspect of the phone.
