I bought an iPad 3 because of the introduction of a retina display and my intention to use it as a simple note taking device for classes (via solar powered blue tooth keyboard), read articles and newspapers, and gaming. It got a lot of use and was very handy during my business trips. my regular phone was the iphone 4 now comes the iPhone 6 plus which I had for almost 3 weeks. since then my iPad hardly has any use now and is locked away in a drawer. I have no issues with the 6 plus' size. the bigger screen makes it easy to read online news as well being good enough for gaming. it's certainly not big enough to be used reading journal articles..but to be quite frank, I never fully adjusted to reading it on a screen. I still prefer physical paper as I can shift through the pages quickly to find what I want. I think it worsened now that I have my own staff and free printing privileges (yes I should save the trees).. and now for business trips, I start carrying an ultrabook which is as light as an iPad+ keyboard combo, but offers far more productivity. I think I found the best combo for myself. phablet, ultrabook/mba, and large desktop have any of you seen your iPad use declining?
