    I'm planning to replace my 5s and mini 2 for a 6s Plus 128GB. I don't want to carry two devices at the same time and I would like the 6s plus to be all in one device(camera,phone,media hub, etc). I have my MacBook Air for my productivity, engineering tools. Is it ideal? I would like to hear some opinions.

    I may be the wrong person to ask this, because I've never been partial to iPad, but I've had even less reason to ever pick it up with my 6s plus. Fantastic device with a ton of screen rela estate.

    Having browsed these threads it seems most people just like the browser on an iPad batter (and I guess I can't disagree with that) because it shows so much more. To me it's just not worth hopping over to another device (let's pretend that fact that icreased Cody isn't a factor) every time I want to browse the bet.

    I watch a show or two while in bed and have done so on the iPad and 6s plus and honestly don't find myself wanting in that regard either. The 6s is perfectly suitable for that for me.

    So long as you're aware you'll still have to make a few sacrifices (since it's obviously a smaller screen which in quite sure you know) I think it's absolutely doable. As mentioned, for me, it's preferable. Portability and convenience of the phone wayyyyy outweighs the perks of an iPad for me. Split screen multitasking does have me a little jealous though.

    I'm kinda in the same boat. I want to replace my 5s and iPad mini 1 with iPhone 6s Plus. I would love to hear what others have to say in terms of their experience with similar transition.

    It's still early, but I ever since I got my 6S+, I have barely touched my iPad mini 2 except for work (I use it in the classroom as a teacher). Granted, this could be due to the novelty of a shiny new device and the noticeable improvement in performance, but I find the 6S+ quite suffices for the stuff I do on it, from browsing the web to watching youtube to listening to podcasts to gaming, and it has enough battery life so I don't feel like I have to outsource these activities to my iPad just to avoid having to recharge my phone ever so often.

    I might go back to the iPad mini some time down the road, but I do see myself using it a lot less than what I previously did.

    I moved from iPhone 5 to 6S+ and will likely be giving my iPad mini 2 to my older daughter sometime after getting an iPad Pro.

    So, in short: yes.

    Personally I think the combination of a 6S Plus and an iPad Air 2 is perfect. While the screen on the 6S Plus is excellent I do prefer having a bit of extra screen space while at home.
