    Just curious to see what people are using on their 6 plus's ? The zoom is really nice to have as a feature. In currently using the standard view but might change to the zoom view.

    Zoom for sure.

    Its way more aesthetic like that and makes it pop.

    Lol I freaked when I couldn't get it switched back to standard, starting to catch on to the new texting and liking it

    ----------

    Hated the zoom myself

    Am I right in saying the dock doesn't rotate in landscape mode if you have it in zoomed view?

    I'm running standard as well. Looks better IMO
    Can't go wrong with either one though, these displays are incredible

    lol with a huge screen like that, why still have small text?

    Thats the whole point of having more space, to make it more comfortable to see from a medium distance without straining your eyes.

    My eyes aren't strained at all in standard mode.

    Nor would they be in Zoom.

    But at least the icons don't look tiny and unaesthetic.

    Standard. Don't like zoom at all. Reminds me of the scaled up apps that need to be updated.

    I never said it would be strained in zoom, either?

    I personally find standard to be more visually pleasing than zoom. People have varying opinions.

    Standard, zoomed is for people with thick glasses.[​IMG]

    I never said you said that.

    But the point is that when they are zoomed its easier to read. It also looks more proportional.

    I'm the opposite, what's the point of more display real estate if everything is just bigger? I like having smaller text and icons so I can fit more and see more on the screen.

    ^This. Do you buy a 27" monitor for your computer and run it at 1024x768?

    Are those touch screen?

    think of any time you see POS systems or touch systems out in public and you touch things. Usually the buttons take up the right amount of room. The text isn't all tiny and high res.

    Hey Azzin,
    You are certainly right in saying that It looks like no one caught your drift though. I like being able to see screens in landscape. It was one of the reasons I bought the 6+.

    No, but they don't have to be oversized either. But the beauty is, you can run it either way.

    There is a picture with toggle here http://www.apple.com/iphone-6/display/

    Zoom is better for us older people with bad eyes. I do wish it could be changed on the fly though

    Standard. Love having 6 rows of icons per page.
