iPhone 6 In Late 2020! (Still Worth It?) (Review)

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Welcome back everyone time to do a late 2020 review my very first late 2020 review and i'm so happy to do it of the iphone 6 i'm pretty sure within the last couple years that i've been doing these type of reviews for these phones the iphone 6 has been one of the first iphones that i tested and what i can tell you is that first of all i am still pretty sure the iphone 6 is one of the most popular phones out there and funny enough i think still my second most popular video and my most popular technology video

I've ever done was about the iphone 6 which is so funny i have so much love about this phone i could marry this phone today if it were legal and honestly i owe a lot to this specific device and the very first iphone that i ever used as a daily iphone instead of just using it as a side iphone was an iphone 6 plus so not this iphone but the bigger brother to this one now what i can tell you is and this is pretty much apparent i would not recommend anybody going out of their way to pick up an iphone 6 to use as a daily

Phone i just think that's kind of like committing fraud activity to yourself like i just feel like if you just go buy an iphone 6s that is probably or an iphone se those are probably the two iphones that i would recommend the least like if you have no money at all and you're just trying to get an iphone i would not go any lower than those two phones and there have been some developments with the iphone 6 i think the most important big deal about the iphone 6

That has happened is that it's pretty much outdated with software as of right now which is surprising because last year the last time i made a video about this was i think mid 2020 and even then i was like bro like this phone is killing it because of the software updates and even now like it's still kind of the case but you have to keep in mind that with the iphone 6 it's not getting any more software updates which is kind of unfortunate

Because i think this phone probably could have handled it you know i think this phone could have handled ios 13 to be completely honest with you but ios 12 was a pretty good spot to end on this phone and i think that's probably the biggest you know news outlet thing that's happened since then with ios 14 we haven't really gotten any new you know ios 12 updates yet i'm not saying it can't happen but i'll probably say that without a

Doubt the iphone 6 is probably unsupported with software so software wise that's probably the biggest change you know honestly however the hardware is one of the most fascinating things about this device because when you look at this visually it doesn't really look too much different from the front than the brand new iphone sc 2020 that just came out earlier this year and that is something that's very interesting because this iphone 6 was pretty much the biggest design

Change at that time besides the iphone 4 and 4s and this was the biggest design change we had the bigger screen and everything and apple is still manufacturing these exact same parts the exact same screen and everything on this specific phone which is so crazy we have all these phones with like the lowest amount of bezels and whole punch displays and everything but the iphone 6 you know was the one that originated the design in the se2 pretty much you know is still in the same style with it which is really

Impressive so the display i think is not the best display it's not even that great of a display anymore but it's an okay display which i think it's one of its biggest assets this one came on in 2014 dude that was six years ago and it's crazy that this phone is still even being talked about at all so for sure the iphone 6 has a lot of love in my heart and i still like it to this day it has the lightning port on the bottom as well as a headphone jack which is

Really cool and on the back a single camera setup and i'll just go and hit on the camera right now dude this camera setup you know it's a single 8 megapixel sensor and it's 1080p it's not a bad you know what i don't know how to say this without hurting people's feelings it's not a great camera okay it's not a great camera it's not a good camera but it's a good enough camera you know if you need to go take photos you know by all means go for it i've

Actually seen some people make some really decent videos from this camera it only can shoot 1080p at 60 frames and i don't even think it can shoot 60 frames maybe you can i don't know i thought it topped out at 30 frames but whether it's 60 or 30 i still think this camera setup is good enough for a single camera setup however if i had to use it as an everyday camera i probably wouldn't like it too much now me personally i'm not really using that back camera too much if i'm being

Honest unless i'm doing a camera comparison or like i'm out on like a hike and i want to take a picture of the beautiful sunset that nobody cares about like i'll go ahead and do something like that but i'm not really shooting like my videos on this camera or on my phone camera i'm usually shooting in on a you know dslr but that front camera is the thing that i use the most and the front camera on this is a 1.2 megapixel sensor and you can do 720p videos on it but other than that like it's not really

That great of a sensor on the front i think the front camera is worse than the back camera in terms of you know comparing it to today's cameras and i think that's probably the biggest disadvantage of this specific phone would definitely be the camera setup i don't think it's a horrible camera like i stated but i think in this day and age you will probably require a better front-facing camera than a back camera if this phone didn't have a bad camera obviously i would have paid it but if it had a really really good front-facing

Camera i think that would be totally different in my opinion i think that might have been the dumbest analogy ever made but regardless i mean this camera is good enough it'll get the job done but for the front camera i don't really think is that great to be honest but i think for this thing camera modules and everything to still be working is pretty impressive in my book so in terms of the camera setup that pretty much covers it up and in terms of the performance side of things

This thing has the apple a8 chip a dual core cpu and one gig of ram and i think this is probably the biggest disadvantage you know i've said that like three times software is probably the biggest disadvantage but the performance is a solid like second option and when it comes down to the performance side of things i i really don't think it's the best even 2014 phone that has held up so far i think this phone is like a solid you know

5 out of 10 in performance i think the biggest asset of it is its smoothness factor i think the fact that this phone is as smooth as it is is definitely one of my favorite things about it and on top of that i don't really think this phone is a bad performing phone i think when i compare to like the galaxy s4 or i think the lg g2 or g3 came out the same year as this device i think these are kind of in the same ballpark but i think the iphone 6

Brings that smoothness factor i just think when it comes down to like the playability of certain things and i think even some games i think sometimes they do perform a little bit better on the android side of things if they're supported that's the biggest disadvantage some games aren't even supported anymore on android side on ios with the iphone 6 at least all these games are supported and that's one thing that's really fascinating i don't know how much longer that's going to be maybe you know next year ios 12 apps are going to start

Going away we've seen this before with ios 9 ios 10 i think ios 11 the same thing and performance wise like i stated i think it's good enough i think just like the camera if you're trying to go day to day you'll probably be okay if you're just trying to you know do imessages and phone calls and facetimes and stuff like that i think you'll probably be better off than not but i think the biggest problems probably come in the form of playing heavier intensive

Games when you're trying to play you know fortnite on your iphone 6 which is not even supported if you're trying to play you know like real racing three and like super high graphical games you'll probably run into problems which is okay you know this this phone is not meant to last forever but that is definitely one thing to keep in mind i will say though for a 2014 device i think it handles everything perfectly fine like i think it's a really really

Good performing device for the most part in my opinion for a 2014 iphone but i just personally wouldn't use it anymore and and the performance side of things would definitely not be something that i would recommend at the end of the day so in terms of performance that pretty much covers it up and in terms of the battery life you know this thing has a 1 810 million bar battery and in this case too i mean i don't think it's that great it's very very average on top and it's

Probably even below average and that's saying if it had 100 million power in it and chances are if you have an iphone 6 or if you owned one for a while or even if you're buying one brand new or even if you're buying one used the battery life inside of it is really really you know proponent to the battery health that you have inside of it and if it's at like 60 battery health or 70 or 80 percent chances are that battery life is not going to be you know lasting you that long

Even if it had 100 it's still want to be that great in my opinion so that really pretty much covers up the battery aspect too and to kind of sum up this whole entire video and to answer the question is the iphone 6 still worth it in 2020 obviously you know even in later 2020 it's definitely not worth it the only asset of this would definitely be like if you can find one for like 30 dollars and you have to have a side phone for some reason then and it makes and then it's like a

No-brainer like if you're never gonna use it then it's fine if you're currently using it though i would a hundred percent wait until the new iphones come out once the new iphones come out i would recommend buying those or buying the iphone 11 series or even buying an iphone 6s those will definitely get you a better experience overall than having to go and use your iphone 6 and then just upgrade right now to the 1111 pro for full price when the new iphones are about to come

Out you can get the last gen for much cheaper than the new gen so i definitely say you know for that aspect you know that's fine if you're currently looking for a new iphone and you have your i set for an iphone 6 that might mean that your budget is super low or the availability in your country or your you know city or whatever maybe iphone 6 is all you have and that's all you can see for your budget but i would also tell those people who are in that situation

To wait save some money don't save money whatever but just wait until you can find an iphone 6s or iphone sc for that price throughout my years of research on these iphones and especially the used prices aspect i've always found that an iphone sc is around the same exact price sometimes cheaper than an iphone 6. a lot of people look at the sizes and they're like oh like the iphone 6 has to be more expensive because it's a bigger size that is not the case at all the iphone

Se is a far superior phone than the iphone 6 and i would highly recommend anybody who who has an iphone 6 or they're looking for an iphone 6 to save some money or wait until you get an iphone se that would probably be my better way to go the iphone 6 is a great phone it was a great phone but i just don't think it's worth it to pick up anymore and if you do find one that's less than 30 and goodbye homies go for it but i wouldn't recommend anybody using an iphone 6 as a daily phone anymore so
