As well as the release of the iPhone 6, we also saw the release of it’s bigger, much bigger brother. Recently this phone has received a lot of stick for it’s size and the consequences for being so much bigger.

Look and Feel of the Iphone 6 Plus
The new look iPhone is quite nice, however the 6 Plus seems to be too big. After comparing the 6 and the 6 Plus, I would with a doubt choose the 6 every time. The phone is probably too big and probably makes the iPad Mini redundant. It has also surfaced that the 6 Plus is bending in people’s pockets. Which makes you think that this phone hasn’t been designed very well.
IPhone 6 Plus’ Camera
The 6 Plus’ camera is equal to that of a 6, it is quite an improvement when you compare it to the 5s, etc. The pictures and videos that you take, also look very nice on the big screen.
Breaking the Mould
The talking point of the Iphone 6 Plus is the fact that is is MASSIVE. This has definitely divided opinions, some people liking the huge screen, the bigger battery and the other additional benefits of having a big phone. However with all the negative news surrounding the 6 Plus; the bending of the phone in people’s pockets, it has definitely given the phone a bad name and I think that the 6 Plus isn’t a phone I would like to own.
Quick Pros and Cons
- Improved camera (and video)
- Improved battery life
- Even more expensive than usual
- Huge phone – too big for most people; hard to hold and put in your pocket
- Negative news; bending of the phone – Not a practical phone
- The new features have been around for a while on Android and Windows phones
Overall I think that Apple sorted a few of their problems with the 6, but created more problems with the 6 Plus. Definitely not a practical phone for me, if I was to get one of the new iPhones, it would have to be the 6.
