“Many horror stories will come out after the iPhone 6 launches – how it is unusable, how the increase in size is too much, how iOS now sucks,” Gordon Kelly writes for Forbes. “For some these problems won’t go away, but for many their reactions will be based on issues of muscle memory.”
“A ‘reverse-L shape’ of the phone’s screen is easiest to access and you will need to move around your most used apps to reflect this,” Kelly writes. “Many times the most comfortable and productive way to operate a big screen phone is to give in and use two hands and… this sparks a strange mental phenomenon: walking and using a phone one handed is fine, but walking and using a phone two handed is far more difficult.”
“Carrying around an iPhone 6 will be more of an issue to men than women. This is because many women carry their phones in bags, but men put them in their trouser and suit pockets… and therefore the iPhone 6 – is just fractionally too large for many of them,” Kelly writes. “The extra stretch required to hit the ‘Q’ or ‘P’ will become a thing.
