Over the last couple of years it could be argued that Apple had been “overshadowed” by the advent of larger smartphones and phablets particularly in the Android ecosystem and, to a lesser extent, the Windows
Phone ecosystem. However, this year Apple has responded by bumping the screen sizes of its iPhone 6 to 4.7″ and the iPhone 6 Plus to a generous 5.5″.
Personally, I am a fan of larger phones – my daily driver is the Nokia Lumia 1520 with its 6″ screen and I had also toyed with the idea of going Android with the Sony Xperia Z 2 Ultra with a pocket-busting 6.4″ screen.
Anyway, my wife had been a bit indecisive about which iPhone 6 model to choose (let alone choosing to upgrade from the iPhone 5S) but ultimately I ended up getting her a 128GB iPhone 6 Plus in silver (64GB have been as rare as rocking horse droppings and 16GB is just too small). I think Apple has been very smart in making the available storage capacities rather sparse in an effort to extract more cash from consumers.
Anyway, a new device means an unboxing video!
My wife is in the process of transferring her stuff from her iPhone 5S to the iPhone 6 Plus so I will let you know how things go and her thoughts on the device particularly under daily usage.
