iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ are the new big things. Everyone is talking about the iPhone 6 and it is making me crazy! The iPhone 6 plus is huge! It is basically an iPad mini. It is not a phone if you can't fit it in your pocket! For some reason people like phones that don't even look like phones. A lot of new phones have started to get bigger screens, like the Galaxy note. The iPhone 6+ has an even bigger screen and with its new technology with Siri and IOS 8 it seems to be getting a little out of hand.
It could be just me but these new phones that are coming out like the samsung 4K display phone is just not a phone anymore. Did you know that the iPhone 4s which is now out dated has more processing power than the Apollo space craft! Here are some simple numbers I found online:
Apollo space craft:
Dimensions: 24 x 12.5 x 6.5 inches
Weight: 70 pounds
Processor speed: 1 MHz
Memory: 2,048 words (32,768 bits or roughly 4kB)
Display: seven-segment numeric
Power consumption: 55 watts
Price: $150,000 (est.)
Apple iPhone 4S
Data from Apple, phonearena.com, and chipdesignmag.com.
Dimensions: 4.5 x 2.31 x 0.37 inches
Weight: 4.9 ounces
Processor speed: 800 MHz, dual core
Memory: 512 MB of RAM, built in storage of 16, 32, or 64 GB
Display: 3.5 inches, full color, 649 x 960 pixels
Power consumption: 0.7 to 1.5 watts
Price: starting at $199 (with 2-year contract)
Now some new phones have up to 8x the amount of memory that the iPhone 4s has and the phones today weigh less and has double the processor speed, so they have even more powerful. We landed on the moon with an early computer system that today would not be able to sell for one dollar!
Phones are really changing. Soon a phone will probably have the same power as a powerful desktop computer. Phones will also get better screens. This world is getting a bit to insane for me. I'm out!
