iPhone 6 & 6s – Is Bigger Really Better?

Well, Apple has done it again.

Last week, Apple unveiled two new iPhones, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Along with larger screens and a completely new iPad-style design with an ultra thin body and rounded corners, the two new phones offer faster processors, better cameras, and software.

However, not everyone has been won over by the newest of the iPhone family – a 29 year old man from Windsor, Ontario had some not so nice things to say:

“iPhone 6 – you are very disappointing. Battery life is atrocious, wireless drops out wherever you are, 8 of my apps don’t work even after three updates, and you are way too big. You stole features from Android, that they have had since 2012 and prior. If I wanted a phone like this, Galaxy is a WAY better choice. Apple drops the ball yet again. That’s two subpar releases in a row. Overall rating is 3.7/10.”

While this 31 year old Toronto native took a more condescending, comedic approach:

“Apple made me laugh today. That was a cute attempt at a “new” phone.”

Meanwhile, there were some people who absolutely couldn’t wait to get their hands on Apple’s newest device – including a 30 year old YouTube Vlogger who was first in line and literally camped out (tent and all!) in front of the apple store for 48 hours.

She kept in touch with her fans posting instagram photos of her and her sister in front of the store beside their tents with the following captions:

Well.. We’re first in line. Been here for 27 hours so far. Having a great time (I think) #iPhone6

41 hours down. Only 7 more hours and we will get our phones! #iPhone6

Once she acquired her precious iPhone 6 plus, she went on to rave about it saying:

“It’s HUGE, but I love it! This is the best apple product I’ve purchased to date!”

So okay, this product obviously has some mixed reviews, but personally I think Apple has nailed this one on the head. While the iPhone 6 plus is more of a “phablet” (phone + tablet), it has surely come a long way since the original iPhone.
