No more waiting for the new iPhone 6 that has been announced official at the Apple Flint Center where Steve Jobs launched the very first Apple Computer. That shows how Apple is closely devoted to Steve Jobs mission and vision about this company. People who were lucky to get the chance to get the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on their hand to feel the advancements made this time with these devices. At WWDC 2014 Apple has already launched the iOS 8 that makes the upgraded iPhone 6 more attractive.


The larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch wearable, Apple unveiled the iPhone 6, a stylish 4.7-inch handset with a faster A8 processor, NFC, and a 720p Retina HD display. Available on September 19, the phone will launch in eight countries, including the US, UK, Australia, and parts of Asia.

Though it comes with advance features from its previous flagship, the new iPhone faces strong competition from its Android rivals. Such as the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 — both of which include expandable memory, quad-core processors and bigger display.

Here I am going to take on the iPhone 6 to the best known Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8.
