After 8 years, the 2014 iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus is still well used, like a compact and nostalgic smartphone.
Last week, Apple announced iPhone SE (2022) – the third generation iPhone SE in a 7-year series. This year, iPhone SE 3 has significant upgrades in internal configuration, the design is completely retained from the second iPhone SE. And coincidentally, the appearance of the iPhone SE is very similar to the one iPhone 6appeared in 2014.
iPhone 6 – Old design but still convenient
The fact the iPhone SE is based on iPhone 5 from 2012. If you put iPhone 5 and iPhone SE (2016) side by side, users will hardly notice any difference. The same goes for the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE (2022).
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were once legendary.
They have the same rounded corner design and almost the same size. The two phones share a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 750 x 1,334 px (and a pixel density of 326 ppi). The screen borders are thick, the bottom is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
The iPad also has a fingerprint scanner, but Apple’s phones switched to Face ID a long time ago. In fact, since the iPhone X (from 2017), Face ID has completely changed the iPhone, although the original “notch” design received a lot of criticism.
Fingerprint scanner is very convenient.
The fingerprint scanner is very convenient. For example, iFan will not need to remove the mask to unlock Face ID. In addition, if you quickly put your finger on the Home button, the phone can be unlocked quickly as soon as the user takes it out of the pocket. This is especially effective when the Home button integrates a physical scanner instead of being integrated under the glass screen, forcing users to put the fingerprint in the right place on the screen.
Basic functions are still “delicious”
To be fair, some things have changed since the iPhone 6 with the antenna lines on the back. In fact, the iPhone 6 series has an aluminum back, which blocks the signal. Recent Phone models (since iPhone 8 and iPhone X generations) have glass backs, which simplifies antenna placement.
The screen of the iPhone 6 Plus is larger and sharper.
Other features have also changed, the iPhone SE is now IP67 rated for dust and water resistance (they can last for half an hour under 1m of water). In addition, the new iPhone SE also receives a Ceramic Shield glass for the front, which is more durable than regular glass (more durable than Gorilla Glass). Instead, the iPhone 6 only has “Ion Tempered Glass”.
In 2014, the iPhone 6 came along with the iPhone 6 Plus with a larger screen – 5.5 inches and a larger battery (2,915 mAh compared to 1,810 mAh on the iPhone 6) and that was pretty much the only difference.
Both iPhone 6 and iPhone SE have 1 rear camera.
There’s a single camera on the back (iPhone 7 Plus adds a second camera) but the iPhone 6 Plus is the first iPhone to offer Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). This is a camera advantage over the iPhone 6. However, both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can record 1080p video at 60 frames per second, while the 2013 iPhone 5s can only record at 60fps. at 30 frames per second. In addition, phase detection autofocus is another upgrade compared to the iPhone 5s, which only has AF focus.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The rear camera on the iPhone SE (2022) is really not much more than the design of the iPhone 6. Of course, the new iPhone SE has a camera with a higher resolution – 12MP (compared to iPhone 6’s 8MP), brighter aperture. (f / 1.8 vs f / 2.2) and OIS, not to mention the Apple A15 chip is more than capable of handling images a lot better..
In addition, the iPhone SE 3’s selfie camera has been upgraded to a 7MP camera, which is better than the iPhone 6’s 1.2MP camera – which is just enough for FaceTime video calls. On the other hand, the newer iPhones (since the iPhone 11 series) have had a 12 MP front camera with a wider lens.
The unibody aluminum design makes the iPhone 6 easy to bend.
Currently, the A15 Bionic chip on the iPhone SE 3 has brought 5G connectivity. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 only supports 4G – a new feature of Apple at launch.
In addition, because the body design of the iPhone 6 has an all-aluminum structure, it is also more prone to bending if the user accidentally sits on it or puts force on it. The iPhone 6 still has a 3.5mm headphone jack – which has been removed from the iPhone 7 series until now. However, this iPhone also has only one speaker while newer iPhone models (iPhone SE included) already have stereo speakers.
iPhone 6 was once legendary
Obviously, the iPhone 6 isn’t perfect, but the iPhone 6 series has sold 10 million units in just a week. A week later, that number had grown to 13 million.
iPhone 6 (left) and iPhone SE 3 (right) are virtually identical in design.
It can be said that the design of the iPhone SE (2022) is almost identical to the design of the iPhone 6 for nearly 8 years. Appearance aside, a lot has changed since the most beautiful iPhone of 2014. Most importantly, the flaws of the original design have been fixed and many improvements have been made.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pairs have been discontinued since 2017, when the iPhone 8 series was launched. Currently, these are still cheap iPhones and are loved by many ordinary users.
