Chicks dig Apple’s flagship iPhone 6 Plus

“The phablet is all the rage. Half smartphone – half tablet, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus is on fire,” Mark Reschke writes for T-GAAP. “According to Carolina Milanesi, of Kantarworldpanel, iPhone 6 Plus gobbled up 44% of the worldwide phablet market during the first quarter of 2015.”

“China is largely responsible for the overall iPhone 6 Plus consumption, but the U.S. and Europe are also playing an important role. Who is buying all these quasi-tablet/smartphone Pluses?” Reschke writes. “Women.”

“Cultural differences aside, universally women carry purses, and generally speaking, men do not,” Reschke writes. “This is not to say guys are not purchasing iPhone 6 Plus, because they are. Bigger guys, the elderly, or fat-fingered folks tend to gravitate towards the Plus for ease of use… The market once thought to be a lock for Samsung has proven to be nothing more than a placeholder until Apple became engaged. Since Apple has entered the large screen smartphone race, it is clearer than ever before that women, whether in business or elsewhere, have always wanted iPhone, and now they are getting them, in plus size.”

  1. What in all F is this nonsense? I’m not a “big guy”, nor am I overweight or fat-fingered. I use the iPhone 6 Plus because I like a big screen phone. The bigger the screen, the more useful it is to me. And now that I’m used to it, the regular iPhone 6 screen looks way too small. I would never go back to a smaller phone.

      1. Then your eyes aren’t failing, are they?

        Some people can’t easily read Ive’s horrid iOS interface due to real eyesight issues, and they only were able to switch to an Apple phone when the iPhone 6 was released.

          1. I am satrting to recognize a troll. They dismiss what you say and then offer counter examples. Your experience doesn’t count; you are simple, deluded, a fanboy, incapable of seeing the truth–that Ive and Cook and the others at the top are screwing things up. And finally they don’t offer solutions, only feigned pity. That about right?

          2. hey silverdick:

            have you ever seen an eye chart? Does the font get bigger or smaller as you go down the list?

            do ya think any watch is gonna display the same size fonts as an iPhone 6+?

            get a clue, silverdickwad. you are the worst forum fanboy ever.

    1. I’m 78 and love my  Watch (and my 6 plus)! I ordered at 3 a.m. on the 10th and received it on the 24th. 42mm Space Gray Sport with black band. Have a Milanese Loop ordered.

  2. Wall Street has already given the iPhone 6 Plus the kiss of death saying that sales have already topped out and next quarter will prove it. Analysts always seem to be able to read the future of Apple.
