I got my Iphone 6 (in Gold – 128
mbgb) when I had my re-contract with Globe as my network provider. I already finished my 24-months contract and its my time to get a new phone hehehe. I made my reservation via phone call thru their Customer Hotline and after few days, I received a confirmation that my unit is now available for pick up. Boy that was fast. I thought this would take few weeks. Anyway, my Globe lifestyle plan is Php1499 and I bought this unit for Php22,800. Good deal right?
Moving on to the unboxing! 🙂
The package includes the Iphone 6 unit, Apple Earpods with Remote and Mic, Lightning to USB Cable, 5W USB Power Adapter and the manual (inside the box).

Let us move on with the highlights of this post. Iphone 6 vs Iphone 5.
Iphone 5 was first released last September 2012. Meanwhile the Iphone 6 was September last year (2014). Iphone 6 measures 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm while Iphone 5 measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm. If you always watch videos like I do, you will appreciate a bigger screen. On the other hand, I was used to a slimmer handy phone so it took me time to grasp the Iphone 6 comfortably in just one hand.
Left photo shows that the volume controls changed that accommodates its thin and round design of the new Iphone 6. On the right photo, the sleep/wake button placement has changed as well on the left side from its original location which is on top near the front face camera.
