When Apple first unveiled the iPhone 6 Plus back in September of 2014, I was in complete shock and awe. The design of the phone was absolutely gorgeous. It was very apparent that Apple took the time and effort to design not only a technological monster, but also a work of art.
I stayed up until midnight the night pre-orders went live so I could get my hands on one. Before I hit the confirm button to complete my purchase, I held my iPhone 5 in my hand and thought, “The 6 Plus size will be just fine,” and completed my order. A few weeks later, it finally arrived. When I got home from work, I opened the package and unboxed my brand new iPhone 6 Plus. My first thoughts at that moment, “Holy sh** this thing is huge.”
It took some time to get used to the size of the device. The 5.5″ display is definitely not for the faint of heart but it makes all the difference in the world. It would be nearly impossible for me to go back to a smaller display. I usually keep my phone in my back pocket when I walk around. I always make sure I take it out before I sit down so as to ensure it doesn’t bend. People still ask me if my phones bends. I always tell them no because I don’t sit on it carelessly.
The hardware driving the phone is definitely on point. The camera, although is only 8-megapixels, takes amazing pictures thanks to the software behind the lens. My Instagram pictures looks absolutely amazing now. One of the most convenient things about the phone is ApplePay. It is so simple to use and it makes shopping that much easier. It also makes spending money that much easier as well which is definitely a dangerous thing but I digress.
I love my phone. If you are afraid of Apple’s new flagship models, don’t be. Just be prepared to adjust the way you handle your phone if you do decide to get one. I would recommend getting one. They are so much fun and a wonderful tool to have.
