When the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were announced I thought for sure that the Plus size was way too big for me, and frankly too big for a phone period. It’s just over two inches smaller than the iPad mini screen, for example. How could I possibly use and comfortably carry a phone that size day-to-day?
Around the time the iPad mini with Retina display was first released, I tried using that along with an iPhone, but found the iPad was often left unused because my phone was always with me, while the iPad was not. I loved the large screen of the iPad, but since I couldn’t also use it as a phone when I needed to, it got left behind more often than not in favor of just carrying one device instead of two. Then, I began hearing many friends and others praising the Plus sized iPhones.
For that reason, when it was time to consider upgrading to the 6s series, I decided to take the plunge and go for the 6s Plus. I must say, I’m very glad I did, I couldn’t be happier with this device. The extra screen size is fantastic for watching videos, viewing pictures, typing, etc… The extra camera features are welcomed with our first child, Hunter, on the way. The larger battery, which in turn provides longer battery life, also comes in very handy.
If you’re on the fence about your next phone size, I’d really recommend looking into the Plus sized iPhones. The size difference doesn’t take long to get used to, and for me, the pros far outweigh the cons (of which I can’t say I’ve found very many at all).
