Fly Or Die: Apple iPhone 6 Plus

There is quite a bit of controversy surrounding the new iPhone 6 Plus.

It’s the new golden child of Apple’s product line, bigger, thinner and more beautiful than ever. However, the size may just be detrimental to people who have smaller hands and can’t easily handle the large, slippery iPhone. And then there was all the #bendgate stuff, which turned out to be NBD.

The iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1080p display with 401 ppi and 1300:1 contrast. It is the most beautiful iPhone display to date. Under the hood, you’ll find an A8 processor, notably faster wifi and LTE connectivity, and options for 16GB, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. And beyond that, the iPhone 6 Plus is home to Apple’s best mobile camera, with optical image stabilization and great performance around low-light shooting and autofocus.

It’s a great phone, and even as someone who has never been excited about the trend towards bigger phones, I have enjoyed using the iPhone 6 Plus when I sit around at home or in bed or while I watch TV. It’s amazing for games, viewing videos, and getting things done faster.

Would I switch over to the 6 Plus exclusively? I’m having a hard enough time adjusting to the smooth and slippery iPhone 6, so no. But John is already fully integrated with the 6 Plus as his primary device, and I can’t imagine him going back.
