The tale of two iPhones: 6 & 6+ My name is MacintoshJosh and I have carried and owned both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+. I personally do not care which phone is more popular or "rare". I do not care which phone received higher benchmark scores. I do not care about "bend gate" or biased reviews. My reviews are biased.. iPhone 6 "review" I suppose you could call me the type that everyone hates, despite knowing I wanted to try the iPhone 6+, when the Apple employee got to me on launch day and and stated they had no iPhone 6+ models in stock I just simply chose an iPhone 6 and purchased it instead. I took home my 64gb gold iPhone 6 in a midnight blue leather case and could instantly tell that Apple had done something special with this phone. It didn't feel much larger than my iPhone 5S. Clearly the phone was wider, taller and the screen had grown but the longer I used the phone the more it felt like the grab and go 5S. I could pocket the phone easily, it seemed to work effortlessly, I could reach all 4 corners of the screen. It just simply worked, yet I was absorbing more information, this larger screen was showing me more content at once and when I paid close attention, I could tell this was a completely different experience than anything Apple had created before. This is Apple's Moto X. Pocketable without sacrificing any usability, yes you can use "numbers" on this phone. As a small note I did experience an increase of about 15-20% in battery usage over my iPhone 5S. The phone seems to be more optimized and regularly got me through a 16 hour work day with 5 hours of usage before I even reached 30% battery remaining. iPhone 6+ "review" Finally! I come home with the phone I always wanted! After days and days of making attempts I finally received my iPhone 6+ in space grey. As I activated my iTunes account, switched on iCloud and began downloading my most used apps I quickly realized, this is NOT my Galaxy Note 3. Everything on the 6+ seems to jump off the screen, yet Apple really hasn't done anything special for me to absorb this increases real estate. The fluidity of iOS 8 on the iPhone 6+ is unmatched by any mobile device I have ever owned. Even though, as some people describe, for the most part this is just a HUGE iPhone, there is something to be said for incredible things look and feel on this larger screen. It really does remind me of using a small iPad but one that I can still send one handed messages on and there inlays the bias nature of my review. I am obsessed with mobile computing, I love all aspects of it from phones to tablets and because of that reason I have now owned 50 sell phones in the past 10 years as well as tablets from Palm/ Blackberry, Apple, Google and Samsung. Because of this I have used large phones many times in the past, from the HTC Titan years ago to the Galaxy Note 3 last year. What Apple is giving me that these others phones could not is usability. This is an iPhone which is something that I am greatly familiar with and despite my experience with other mobile operating systems apple's iOS simply works and absolutely love the extra content that the 6+ lets me absorb. I'm 6' tall, I cannot Palm a basketball, I wear a medium size golf glove and I can still send a one handed text message with the iPhone 6+ and for that reason coupled with the beautiful fluid nature of iOS 8 on a 5.5" screen the iPhone 6+ is the phone for me. Small note - The iPhone 6+ has the best battery life of any phone I have ever used. I sit here currently with 16 hours of stand by, 6 hours and 21 minutes of usage and 62% battery life. Something my note 3 never achieved, most likely due to the insane amount of 3rd party applications required just to dumb down samsungs clunky and poor written software. In closing I will say that having owned every iPhone Apple has released that BOTH of these phones are the greatest feats achieved by Apple since they shook the world on that day so many years ago back in 2007.
