2014.09.11 【英译汉】iPhone 6: is it the best choice for travellers? 苹果6:对于旅行者来说是最好的选择吗?

On September 9, Apple announced two new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. With Apple, beautiful design is a given. The major change was the release of two phones with different screen sizes. The current iPhone 5S has a 4-inch screen. The new iPhones have screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, matching rivals at the top end of the smartphone market whose screens generally measure 5 inches or more.

99日,苹果发布会上推出两款新iPhoneiPhone 6iPhone 6 Plus。此次的苹果机子有很好的设计。主要的改变是发布了两款机子不同的尺寸。当前iPhone 5S拥有一个4英寸的屏幕。新的iPhone4.7英寸的屏幕和5.5英寸的屏幕,与其类似的竞争对手手机符合智能手机市场从顶端到底端一般屏幕尺寸是5英寸或更大。

But for travellers, screen size is mostly a sideshow. The new models are also thinner than current iPhones. But my iPhone is already thin and light: there were more important new features to look out for. How do these add up for travellers? Longer battery life?

但是对于旅行者来说,屏幕尺寸主要是一个屏幕显示。新的模型也是比当前市场上的iPhone更薄。但是我们的iPhone已经具有薄和轻的特质了:还有什么更重要的特质需要我们开发的呢。根据旅行者的需求怎样把这些特质应用到手机上?电池寿命更长时间?

I probably tap and swipe more than the average user, but my last-generation iPhone rarely lasts a full day on a single charge when I'm checking apps, maps and review sites on a city break.

The contrast, when I road-tested the HTC One (M8) on a recent trip to Rome, was stark. Its 2,600 mAh battery did not once run out before bedtime. Sony's recently announced Experia Z3 will have an even bigger 3,100 mAh battery.

我可能比一般的使用者更频繁点击和滑动屏幕,但是我上一代的iPhone在我查询应用软件,地图和城市的优惠房时很少可以充电一次就持续一整天。相反的,我在四核的HTCM8)上实地检测一条去罗马最近的道路,是完全荒芜的。它有2600毫安的电池容量在睡觉之前都不会用完。索尼最近推出一款Experia Z3的机子将比3100毫安的电池容量更大。

The new iPhone 6 is an upgrade on the 5S. By how much? Alongside increases in raw battery capacity, the iPhones' faster A8 processor offers improvements in power management. Apple data suggests the iPhone 6 will last 25 percent longer on 3G browsing than the iPhone 5S. Standby times are identical, however. It's an improvement rather than a sea change. The larger iPhone 6 Plus promises a bigger boost in battery life.

新的iPhone 6iPhone 5S 的更新版。价格多少?在原电池容量上有所增加,iPhone具有超快的8核处理器可以提供电源管理的改良。苹果数据显示iPhone 6将比iPhone 5S持续25%更长时间在3G浏览器。然而待机时间是完全相同的。这是一个改进而不是一个重大变化。更大的iPhone 6 Plus 保证更大电源寿命的充足。

A removable battery would be even better, so I could carry a spare on my travels. The LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 both have one, but that was never likely to be on the agenda for Apple.

A better camera?

移动电源可以会好一些,因此我会携带一块备用的在旅行时。LG G3手机和三星Galaxy S5 都有一个,但是它绝对不可能被列入到苹果的工作规划中。

Camera quality was long one of the iPhone's strengths, but rivals have matched and even surpassed Apple. They make carrying a compact camera redundant, saving space in your hand luggage. Sony recently announced the Experia Z3 with a 20.7 megapixel (MP) camera, 4K video recording and image sensitivity equivalent to ISO 12,800, making low-light shooting easier. Nokia's 41MP Lumia 1020 currently leads the way in smartphone photo performance.

照相机质量是iPhone的优势之一,但是竞争对手和苹果旗鼓相当甚至超过苹果。他们相当于携带了一个压实过的累赘的相机,给你的随身行李包节省出空间。索尼最近推出一款Experia Z3拥有20.7兆像素的照相机的机子,4K的录像机及图像敏感度等同于ISO 12800,使得弱光拍摄更简单。目前诺基亚41MP非凡系列1020是智能手机照片性能中的佼佼者。

Did the iPhone 6 camera match these? On the face of it, not quite. The new iPhones still have 8MP cameras. But camera quality is about more than just megapixels. Both iPhone models have a new sensor, faster, more precise autofocus, and improved image stabilization for sharper photos. They can also shoot creative slo-mo video at up to 240 frames per second. Without a detailed hand-on test it's impossible to be certain, but the camera looks like a significant upgrade on the iPhone 5S.

Improved protection against the elements and accidents?

iPhone 6的相机能够和这些相比吗?事实上,不全是。新的iPhone 仍然有8 MP的照相机。但是相机质量不只是百万像素。同时iPhone模型有一个新的传感器,更快,自动聚焦更精确,改良图像的稳定性获取清晰的照片。他们还可以拍摄富有创造性慢动作的视频高达至每秒240的频率。每一部机子都经过精细的手动测试,但是其照相机显得像是对iPhone 5S的一个重大的更新。对保护性能的改善可以对抗这些因素和意外事故吗?

Travel dishes out serious punishment to a smartphone, and accidents happen. Pre-launch rumours suggested that new iPhone screens could be made from ultra-tough synthetic sapphire. Instead, the new iPhone comes with what Apple calls an “ion strengthened glass” screen. And rivals already make fully waterproof phones. The new Sony Experia Z3 is waterproof under 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes, for example. More and better apps?

旅行对智能手机及意外事故的发生加以严惩。上市前阶段传言说新的iPhone屏幕是由机器合成的蓝宝石制成的。相反的,新的iPhone和苹果一起被叫做“离子强化玻璃”屏幕。并且竞争对手已经采用完全防水的手机材料。例如索尼Experia Z3采用的防水材料在低于1.5米的水面浸泡可以长达30分钟。更多或更好的应用软件?

Apple's iOS platform sets the benchmark for breadth and quality of travel apps, though gone are the days when an iPhone app would appear long before the Android version. An upgraded operating system, iOS 8, has already been announced, and will be available from September 17. The new operating system is free on iPhones from the 4S onwards. Among the new features are enhanced photo editing and HomeKit integration, which will enable travellers to control connected security and other so-called “smart home” devices while they are away on holiday.

A secure mobile payments system?

苹果的iOS平台集旅游应用软件的广度和品质为基准,尽管在安卓系统出现很早以前苹果应用软件的时代已经过去。iOS 8操作系统的更新已经被推广,在917日可以上市。新的操作系统在4S之前免费安装在iPhone上。在其新特质之中加强了图像编辑和智能家居的整合,使旅行者能够控制安全性连接和其它所谓的“智能住宅”设置当他们在休假时。

Several phone networks and banks are launching mobile wallets. These are designed to replace credit and debit cards with tapping your smartphone to pay, in any shop that accepts contactless cards. Apple's launched its own version yesterday, known as Apple Pay. It will be available from next month, initially in the US only. Both new iPhones have a Near Field Communications (NFC) antenna for making contactless payments, which shoppers authenticate using their iPhone's Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

许多手机网络和手机银行建立手机钱包。这些被设计成可以替代信用卡和记账卡通过轻轻敲击你的智能手机来进行支付,在任何商店接受遥控支付。苹果昨天建立了自己的版本,被称作苹果支付。将从下个月开始实行,最初只在美国。同时新的iPhone有一个近场通信(NFC)天线来进行无线支付,售货员也可以自动使用他们的iPhone Touch的指纹传感器。

Apple Pay could offer a safe and convenient way to pay when we travel. Travel apps including Uber (for private hire cabs) and OpenTable (for restaurant bookings) have already announced Apple Pay integration services. The payments system will also work with the new Apple Watch.

苹果支付在我们旅行时可以提供一个安全和方便的方式来支付。旅行应用软件包括Uber(私人雇佣出租车)和开放平台(对于饭店预定)已经宣布苹果支付整合服务。支付系统也适用于新的苹果手表。
