iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Unveiled by Apple

Apple has unveiled its latest flagship smartphones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It is an incremental design to last year's models, but Apple have managed to add enough new features to these new iPhones to make them compelling for a huge proportion of its fans.

Apple has finally gone for a bigger screen. No-matter which of the two new iPhones you choose, you will be getting something a lot bigger than the 4.0-inch display of the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C. The iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch Retina display, while the iPhone 6 Plus is more of a phablet with a 5.5-inch Retina HD display.

Despite offering a larger screen, the iPhone 6 offers the same Retina 326 pixel per inch of the 5S with 750 x 1,334 pixels resolution. However, the iPhone 6 Plus does better with a crispier 401 ppi with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution that Apple calls Retina HD.

The camera is essentially the same at 8 megapixels, though some improvements have been added for better and faster photos. However, the iPhone 6 Plus does one better over the iPhone 6 with Optical Image Stabilisation built into its camera.

The new iPhones are coming with a new processor, the Apple A8 chip. The A8 is a 64-bit chip like the A7, but promises 50% faster graphics and 25% faster processor, which should make iPhone 6 run more smoothly.

Like last-year's TouchID fingerprint scanning feature, one of the most outstanding feature of the iPhone 6 is its support of NFC and the incorporation of the Apple Pay mobile payment service, which will enable you make payments at local stores and services with just a tap. Apple Pay is limited to the United States for now with over 220,000 merchants already on board.

iPhone 6 offers 10 hours talktime, while the iPhone 6 Plus offers more than twice the battery life with 24 hours talktime.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will launch initially in eight countries (UK, US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Japan, and Singapore) on September 19 with preorders opening on September 12. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available in 16GB, 64GB or 128GB models.

iPhone 6 Plus prices for the three models at TMobile United States is $749, $849, and $949 respectively. The iPhone 6 will be cheaper.

Best Cheap Smart Phones in Nigeria 2013

Cheap Smart Phones are smartphones you buy when you cannot afford anything better. The sole motivation for buying cheap smart phones is their pricing. There design quality is never comparable to their entry level or mid-range counterparts. They also come with lots of tradeoffs and lags in performance with poor battery life. If you must buy a cheap smart phone, here are some of the best we have seen in 2013.


By our definition a cheap smart phone is any smart phone with a starting price of 20,000 Naira or less in at least one store in Nigeria. Here are some of the best cheap smart phones available right now:

Nokia Lumia 520

Nokia Lumia 520 Low Cost WP8 Phone
Nokia Lumia 520 is an entry level smart phone in its own right, it just happens to be selling below 20,000 Naira in a couple of stores in Nigeria. With a brilliant 4.0-inch display, Microsoft Office, decent battery life, and the best 5 megapixels camera you will probably see at this price, the Lumia 520 is one of the best value smart phones around.
