iPhone 6レビュー解禁

 

ほぼ同時期にiPhone 6のレビューが出ていますが、これはAppleが解禁日をアメリカ東部夏時間、火曜日の午後9時に設定していたからのようですね。NYTに書いてありました。NYTはiPhone 6 Plusに関しては、SamsungのNoteの方が大型サイズを使いやすくする機能があるとレビューしていますね。

Review and Video: With Big New iPhones, It’s the iOS 8 Software Inside That Counts
SEPT. 16, 2014
Molly Wood

But after almost a week of trying the phones, it became clear that the hardware was not the best part of the package. In its quest to deliver bigger phones to a market clamoring for them, Apple has made one phone that is actually a little too small and one that’s a little too big. (Apple lent The New York Times an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus under the condition that a review would be not be published before Tuesday at 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.)

The best part of the new phones is actually the new software inside, which is available for some older models, too, starting on Wednesday. The software, iOS 8, combines some of the advanced features of Android with Apple’s ease of use and reliability.

NYTのレビューは総体評価がよく分からなかったのですが、Mossberg氏は、In my view, it’s the best smartphone on the marketと(いつもの通り)iPhoneをべた褒めしています。Hardwareが優れているというよりも、Softwareやアプリを含めて考えた上での評価です。



iPhone 6 Review: It’s a Winner

After stubbornly resisting for years, Apple has finally joined the big-screen smartphone movement with its two latest models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which go on sale Friday. But it hasn’t just expanded the screens. It has radically redesigned the iPhone, making it thinner and more curved, and has beefed up everything from the screen to the performance to the battery life and wireless speed.

I’ve been testing the more mainstream of the two models, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, for about a week now, and I think it’s a terrific phone. In my view, it’s the best smartphone on the market, when you combine its hardware, all-new operating system, and the Apple ecosystem whose doors it opens. That includes a new service called Apple Pay for buying goods in stores and online electronically via the phone; it’s due next month. Apple Pay will only work with these latest iPhones, and Apple’s forthcoming smartwatch.


一番気になるのは、iPhone 6とPlusのどちらを買うべきかということでしょうか。iPhone 6 Plusはスマホのカテゴリーとは別とみなしています。

Which one to get?
Apple sees the iPhone 6 as the direct successor to the iPhone 5s, and as the more mainstream of the two models — a smartphone with a bigger screen and other improvements. So do I. The iPhone 6 Plus is really a different category, a cross between a smartphone and a small tablet, or “phablet.” If you love your iPhone, but want a significantly larger screen, I’d go with the regular 6. If you want something much, much larger — something different — and you love the iPhone, then the Plus is probably for you.


Mossberg氏は動画でもiPhone 6しかレビューしていないから、OSやPlusのレビューも合わせて確認してくれと言っていますが、結論でもIt’s my recommendation for the best smartphone you can buy.とiPhone 6が一押しのようです。

Bottom line
The iPhone 6 is a great upgrade for current iPhone owners, or for anyone, really. It manages to provide a much larger display in a phone that’s still small enough to handle easily. It’s my recommendation for the best smartphone you can buy.

iPhone 6 Plusに関しては使う人を選ぶという感じでしょうか。NYTでもこちらでも評価は微妙な感じです。



iPhone 6 Plus Review: How Big Is Too Big?

There are a couple of reasons why the Apple iPhone 6 Plus might also be too big for me to purchase. But I have to admit it: I’m tempted. I really like this phone. And to people who actually prefer huge smartphones: You are going to like this phone, too.

That’s mostly because it’s not just a smartphone; it’s a statement phone. What Apple is doing isn’t even especially innovative — “Us, too!” the company is shouting, as it chases after that flatbed truck filled with phablets — and yet, they’ve made this big phone feel fresh and desirable.



YutaはiPhone 6 Plus (64GB)を予約したのでついついPlusを褒めているレビューを探してしまいます。現在のiPhone5だと長い記事を読む気にはならずiPadを使っていますので、Plusには期待しているところです。

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review:
The most serious Apple smartphone yet

Review Date: September 16, 2014

The Good The bigger battery means great battery life, and the 5.5-inch screen is not only big but bright and high-contrast. Optical image stabilization improves low-light photography.

The Bad The big footprint of the iPhone 6 Plus is not for everybody, and it's less visually distinctive in overall design than previous iPhones. Also, apps that haven't been optimized yet look blurry and have big keyboards.

The Bottom Line The iPhone 6 Plus is too big for everyone to love it, but it's Apple's best phone this year. If your budget and your pocket can make room for it, give the iPhone 6 Plus serious consideration.

********
Conclusion
The iPhone 6 Plus is not a phone for everybody. Its size is its biggest drawback and, indeed, that will likely be the deciding factor for many on whether to go with the 6 or 6 Plus. If you can live with a device of these dimensions, the additional $100, £80, or AU$130 is well worth it for the upgraded battery life alone. It's doubly worth it if you're intrigued by better performance of the camera -- or if your eyesight could benefit from extra room for larger fonts.

The iPhone 6 Plus may not be the most visually distinctive phablet device on the market, nor the most feature-packed, but it is a big step forward in the world of Apple mobile devices. This is the most potent iPhone yet, and a serious contender in this, the most serious segment of the smartphone market.

Plusに関しては慎重なレビューが多いのが分かっていますが、テレグラフのレビューも褒めてくれています(笑)



Watch: iPhone 6 Plus review with Matt Warman
The Telegraph's Head of Technology Matt Warman explains the new features available on the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple's biggest-ever smartphone

"The main thing about the 6 Plus is that it, like the iPhone 6, uses a whole new design language for Apple, so that bigger screen comes in a case with curved edges, it comes with a camera that is improved and in this case has optical image stabilisation which makes it a lot better than its predecessors and eliminates a lot of the wobble."

Apple's latest smartphones live up to the company's reputation of making products that are well-designed and easy to use, ensuring that it will continue to dominate the mobile market.

金曜日に手に入れられるといいのですが。。。明日、連絡が来ますように。
