    Conclusion OUR VERDICT The iPhone 6 Plus is a stunning piece of design, and its sumptuous screen will be a magnificent showpiece for the latest games, movies and web pages. Sadly, the Reachability feature isn't enough to solve the problems of such a large smartphone - those with small hands will have to give up on one-handed use - and the price tag remains intimidating. The iPhone 6 Plus is a huge leap from the iPhone 5s, not in terms of technology so much as in terms of its physical presence. It won’t be for everyone, but we are sure that it will pick up many advocates for whom the bigger screen is ideal.

    Plus

    • The big battery provides long life, and the 5.5-inch screen is not only big but bright and high-contrast. Optical image stabilization improves low-light photography.

    Minus

    • The big footprint may not be for everybody, and the overall design is less distinctive than previous iPhones.

    Conclusion
    The iPhone 6 Plus is an outstanding choice for those with big budgets and big pockets, but power users seeking even more flexibility should audition the Galaxy Note 4 as well.

  • TweakTown's Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review

    Conclusion There you have it, my review on the iPhone 6 Plus. Do you see that I actually enjoyed a considerable amount of it? I think by now, you should see that iOS is the problem with Apple, and not the iPhone itself. Apple has been losing at the software game for quite some time now, and this needs to change.   We live in a world where services are used more than anything else, with Google owning the entire Internet pretty much. We have Drive, Gmail, Maps, Navigation, Now, Search, Chrome, and countless others that so many people around the world use each and every day, and I'm one of them.  There is not a single Apple service or app I will use after I box this iPhone up, not one. I will not use iTunes. I will not touch Safari. This is a big problem for Apple, because if you don't live within their system, you don't live with them at all. It's the flipside for Google. You might use an iPhone, but you still "Google" something. Some prefer Chrome over Safari, while others will use Google Maps versus Apple's still-not-great Maps app. In saying that, Apple does hardware extremely well. It's a beautifully crafted device, where anyone who picks it up can see that Apple would've gone through hundreds of prototypes before landing on this. Sure, it has the same look as the previous iPhones, but it's just beautifully made.  Closing it up, you have two ways to go from here: if you're an iPhone fan and due for an upgrade, I'd definitely recommend looking at the bigger iPhone 6 Plus. Yes, it's massive coming from a 3.5 or 4-inch phone, but you'll adjust quicker than you thought you could. Everyone I know who has upgraded from the iPhone 5/5S enjoys the 6 Plus - it just took them a few weeks to adjust. Second, if you're a Google user and deep into Google services, steer clear. Android is far superior (no matter what you say iOS fanboys, be gone) and you will regret it. Google has various apps tied into the iPhone, but they are nowhere near as powerful as they are on Android. If you don't use Google apps that much and just 'use an Android phone' or 'own a Galaxy phone', then you might actually enjoy what Apple has on offer with the new iPhone.  PRICING: You can find the Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16GB (5.5-inch) 4G LTE Factory Unlocked GSM Dual-Core Smartphone - Gold for sale below.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus: An in depth review

    Plus

    • High resolution screen
    • Great software
    • Finger scanner
    • Strong battery performance

    Minus

    • Uncomfortable to hold and use daily
    • Apple's strict governance

    ConclusionAn iPhone that is uncomfortable to use contradicts what the iPhone is all about. This is a niche smartphone intended for a tiny group of multimedia junkies. And even then, the smaller 4.7in iPhone 6 should appease even the most demanding content users.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus review - plus iPhone 6 Plus camera recall

    Conclusion When we initially wrote this review, the new size was something of an unknown. For many people the iPhone 6 (or iPhone 6S) is the better choice for the reasons we list in our iPhone 6 vs 6 Plus comparison. The truth is that a 5.5in screen isn't quite big enough to enable the 6 Plus to replace a tablet, yet the device is arguably too big and unwieldy as a smartphone. It will suit some people perfectly, especially if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games, while others will quickly see that it's not for them: it won't fit in their jeans pocket and demands two-handed operation much of the time. One thing is for sure: the iPhone 6 Plus is still expensive. If you're keen to buy one right now, we'd recommend against the 16GB model. And that leaves the 64GB at £619, but if you're already spending this much money, you may as well spend an extra £80 and get the 64GB iPhone 6S Plus. Or, if you can live with a smaller screen, the 64GB iPhone 6S also costs £619. Of course, there is another option: used or refurbished. If you can find a 64GB model at a good price in the refurbished section of Apple's website, it could be a tempting deal compared to the 6S or 6S Plus.

    Plus

      Impressive battery life, high-quality and large display, user-friendly, speedy performance

    Minus

      Too large for typing and using one-handed, some key features not out in UK, quite pricey

    ConclusionWhile the iPhone 6 Plus isn't the cheapest smartphone out there, you get a high-quality large display, great battery life and speedy performance. But the large format won't suit all users.

    Apple iPhone 6 And iPhone 6 Plus Review

    Conclusion
    The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are bigger and better than ever, but are they a worthy upgrade for existing iPhone users? What if you previously passed over the iPhone because of its small screen, does it now merit a second look?

    Minus

    • Hard to use single-handedly, unimpressive screen to body ratio (6" Androids fit in the same footprint)
    • No microSD slot
    • Pricey memory upgrades, 32GB version should be standard for such an expensive phone
    • No user-replaceable battery
    • Protruding camera lens makes the phone wobble if you don't have a case on
    • Camera is still merely 8MP four years in a row (granted, it's getting better every with every new generation)

    • No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
    • NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
    • Rather pricey for a flagship (without carrier subsidies) that misses some of the extras of the competition, such as stereo speakers, wireless charging, an infrared port, or FM radio

    Plus

    • Big screen
    • Optical image stabilisation
    • Design
    • Landscape mode
    • Battery

    Minus

    • So big
    • No stylus support

    Conclusion The iPhone 6 Plus is certainly one for the power users and certainly one for those looking for a big screen experience. But with a bigger battery and a bigger display comes a device that for many will be just too big overall.Having the benefit of using both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus over the last week we've kept coming back to the iPhone 6 Plus, only to return to the iPhone 6 every time. It's as if our heart drawing us to something new and exciting, but our head is going with the more practical and more efficient, familiar, device.Do you want a phone that slips in your pocket and is great for making calls, snapping pictures, and doing emails on the go, or are you after a device that is a smaller iPad, even better for watching movies or surfing the web on the train?It really comes down to how you want to use your phone. If you are normally sitting down or taking a more considered moment to check something then the 6 Plus is perfect. If you are more of an on-the-go kind of person, checking emails whilst wrestling with an umbrella, we suspect that you'll do better with the regular iPhone 6.Where it gets even more confusing is when you start to factor in the Apple Watch and, if you own a Mac, how Continuity and Handoff will let you access key snippets of your phone without you having to get it out of your pocket. It means you can opt for the bigger size, knowing that for the most time you will probably be using another device to read messages. Oh the torture.As for how it compares to the competition, the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note range or the LG G3 are a very different proposition. The Note with its S Pen stylus is very good at what it does and Apple isn't trying to tackle that approach, even if, in some way, it should be.The iPhone 6 Plus is something different that some will say is confused and some won't understand, but for that niche that wants to have it all Apple and all over the big screen, then the iPhone 6 Plus is there for them.We suspect the iPhone 6 Plus will be the source of perplexity for a long time to come. Bigger really is bigger, but not always better.

    Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Unboxing & First Impressions

    Conclusion My first day with the iPhone 6 Plus has been a surprising one. I didn't come into it thinking that I would hate the iPhone, but I didn't think I would enjoy so much of it so much. The display simply blows me away, and I will find it hard to go back to my Xperia Z2 after this.   One of the biggest issues I have with the new iPhone so far is iOS - iOS is just so... limiting. After coming from Android, it feels like Android is Windows, and iOS is OS X. They're both great operating systems, with massive strengths, and even bigger weaknesses. Where Windows is more prone to getting 'infected', it isn't if you use it well and don't click on every single ad or download torrents directly onto your PC. OS X is more secure, only because viruses from the last decade plus have been in executable form, so Apple has steered clear of it. Now that malware and phishing has moved into the browser, even Apple's desktop OS isn't safe. Android is not a danger, if you're not careless with it. It's open, customizable, and free. I don't customize my homescreen all that much, but being able to put more icons into the dock, or use a custom interface that allows even more customization, is something that I've become accustom to.  The first day with iOS, and I feel like I've been walking around like a free man, and now I'm living in a really beautiful room. The room looks great, there's beautiful furniture everywhere, it's immaculately detailed and clean, but there's nothing to play with. Every time I go to use something, I feel like I'm being pushed somewhere else. iOS treats you like a customer. You are not the owner of the iPhone, you will use the iPhone as Apple intended. This isn't the best way to treat your customer, but when you're selling tens of millions of these per year, and most people seem happy with it, you continue to do the same thing. The question I have is, what if Apple allowed Android on its devices? What if Apple opened up Android and hired some custom OS making companies that have been toying around with Android? Imagine if Apple had purchased Cyanogen, for example. This is what I want to see, as iOS is a massive hurdle for me. It is something that will keep me from ever owning an iPhone for myself.
