“It didn’t take long for me to get used to Apple’s large new iPhone 6 Plus. After more than a month of everyday use, it has become even more of the pocket computer I’ve always wanted,” Dan Frommer writes for Quartz.
“Yes, it’s still ‘too big’ — in the best way,” Frommer writes. “It’s not going to fit in your hand or pocket the same way a smaller phone does. But that’s the point — I’ve been very happy with the tradeoff. The big screen, which displays more text than before, and makes photos look amazing, has come to feel luxuriously comfortable. It’s like driving a SUV instead of a Prius. My old iPhone 4, which I use as a kitchen radio, feels like a miniature toy.”
“It hasn’t replaced my iPad. This surprised me,” Frommer writes. “I thought my beloved iPad mini would be doomed with a new device, almost half its size, in the house. But I still find myself reaching for the iPad when it’s time to read something for more than a few minutes, for watching videos, for recipes in the kitchen, and for reading in bed. I’m not sure I’d buy both if I owned neither—if anything, a massive kitchen iPad seems even more intriguing now.””
