One month with Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus: Surprisingly useful for work functions

“The day the new iPhones were available for purchase I picked up a gold iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB of storage,” James Kendrick writes for ZDNet. “My previous iPhone was the iPhone 4s as I skipped a generation. Instead of getting an iPhone 5, I toyed with Android again — with a Galaxy Note 2. The Note 2 affirmed my preference for big screens; so, instead of getting the smaller iPhone 6, I only considered the iPhone 6 Plus.”

“Now that I’ve spent a lot of time with the new iPhone, how is it holding up?” Kendrick writes. “I’m getting asked that question a lot, and the quick answer is: This is the best smartphone I’ve ever owned.”

“The hardware on the iPhone 6 Plus is nice. I’ve experienced no issues with it and no, I haven’t bent it,” Kendrick writes. “Without a doubt, the construction of the iPhone 6 Plus is great. The metal casing is solid, especially after years of using plastic phones. Using a plastic phone that creaks and flexes instills no confidence in the build quality. There is no lack of confidence in the build quality of the iPhone.”

Kendrick writes, “I am surprised how many of my typical work functions are nicely served by the iPhone. That’s a big reason why the phone is always in my hand. The iPhone 6 Plus is handily the most useful phone I’ve ever used.”

    1. Understood! I hate Samsumg, but I was watching people use the big screen with envious desire. Glad I waited though. I love my 6 plus and it was definitely worth the wait!

  1. I did find that the iPhone 6 Plus was way too big then again the iPhone 6 is also big compared to an iPhone 4. i settled for the iPhone 6 got a 64GB in Gold and couldn’t be happier. I’m sure that whether it’s the 6 or 6 Plus that people will be able to get use to the size right away. It’s really snappy and so far no complaints. It’s built well, you got to be abusing your device regardless of which maker it’s from for it to bend. iPhone isn’t the only brand that had this problem. The fact that it’s from Apple that’s what made people look at the bendgate issue more closely.

  2. I was going to get the 6, but after seeing a co-worker’s new Galaxy Note 4 I went ahead and ordered the iPhone 6 Plus 64GB last Friday from Apple. The camera is one of the most important featured for me and I wanted the better image stabilization.

    Bummer is it’s going to be 3 to 4 weeks. What really irritates me is that I was switching from AT&T to Verizon and wanted two subsidized phones but they wouldn’t let me get the second one until I receive and activate the first. I don’t understand the reasoning for that. Be lucky to have them both by Christmas it looks like.
