I came from a 5s and really like the 6. I love the feel of it, I love the size, I love the speed. Honestly it is quite a bit zippier than the 5s, honestly. My internet speed is blazing fast. Everything else is thoroughly covered in reviews, but IMO it's a big step up from the 5s which I didn't think could get better. Damn, apple is good.
Lemme know if you got questions.

Love the high res close up pics. Thanks for sharing :)

Glad you like your 6, it's an awesome device and looks beautiful.

Just wish that box had an iPhone art print out on it ;)

Question: Why made you go gold over the other colors?

no problem, I have been checking out the forum for the last couple days and noticed a lack of good pics. Took these on my phone 5s. Here is the album link, it may be a little better quality still..

Okay so I went to the store today to get the 6 and had no clue what color to get. in the past I went with white 3gs, white 4s, white/gold 5s and I REALLY wanted to like space gray because the black front is just awesome with the black screen. I just really liked the gold after going back and forth between the two (people thought I was crazy walking between the two displays), it was more my style and to me just a more striking phone. At the end of the day I realized that it matched my watch and that the gold would give me less regrets and I decided to go for it. (Yeah I guess the silver/white would match better but that's BOOORING!!!)

Photo taken at the apple store today in line for my new iPhone:

Nice pics! Thanks for the review. I would also be coming from a 5s, and wondered if it was "enough" of an upgrade. The 6 feels great in my hand.

let's be honest the iPhone 5s will tide you over until the 6s, and full disclosure I usually only upgrade every 2 years but I had money burning a hole in my pocket and my sister gave me her upgrade for my 5s... sooooooo yeah. But anyway, it's pretty great and nothing life changing but if you can, why not.

HEY DUDE DID YOU SEE MY LANYARD!?!?!?!

Thanks for adding the photos! How is texting one-handed?? The only thing that is holding me back from upgrading is the width. I really like being able to check my email one-handed while driving....don't tell anyone.

I just tried it. not bad. and that means something because I have small hands and a small (6 inch) wrist if that adds anything.

I SAY GO FOR IT! I have not found a use for the double tap one hand mode but I'm sure I will find one. Seriously man, I really think its gonna be ok for 1 handed

Uhhhh lol it's Polo Ralph Lauren I believe, no pony on the front, it's their rugby line... Here's the tag so you can go sherlock it yourself. I love gingham patterns... I'm wearing another one right now ;)
idk if you are being sarcastic or not but whatever,
Lucky for you I'm bored. Here's a pic.





Regarding the price I don't remember, somewhere between 40 and 90 USD YMMV

The gold isn't my thing cuz if the white bezels, but man isn't it gorgeous! Another user bought the Apple navy leather case for their gold 6 and it looks so good.
