Surprised not to see a camera there. I have been using nothing but iPhones as a camera since the 4S. Since then they have been about as good as a current affordably priced point and shoot. And with the iPhone, I know it's always just in my left pocket, never farther away. With a camera I have to consciously bring it with me.

Everything the OP mentioned I do on my 6 Plus..and I'll add to it that I use my phone as a GPS device since my business entails driving to see clients daily.

I've used my 4S as a video camera for the past 2 years for YouTube videos. It's been flawless. But right after I got my 6 Plus I bought the new GoPro Hero 4 Black to do my videos. I needed a more professional operating camera with more dedicated camera features so I won't be using the camera on my 6 Plus much.
