The iPhone 6 plus / by Isabelle Ringnes

Being the tech-maniac that I am, of course I was going to purchase it immediately. I even stayed awake for hours in Hong Kong in order to be the first one to snag one off the shelves. Five weeks ago, following the launch of iPhone 6 and 6 plus, I posted on Facebook:

"So what should I get, the iPhone 6 or 6 plus?"

The response was overwhelming. Despite having read in the news that the demand for 6 plus was soaring, my friends were in no doubt: 6 plus is too big, too clunky, don't get it! 

So I was persuaded by fear and cancelled my order for 6 plus. The cancellation lasted about an hour before I scrambled, got in the car and drove to the Apple Store where I was met with the two most beautiful phones I have ever encountered. Hello Mr. 6. 

Considering the sizable drama (no pun intended) about the iPhone 6 plus I was almost dissapointed. It is not THAT big. It is perfect. It has lost weight, and fits sluggly in pocket, purse and hand. Yes, texting and driving is no longer an option; it requires two hands to efficiently navigate the screen. But is that a bad thing? 

On the pro side- the camera resolution is unbelievable (especially in snap chat!?), the gold design slick and elegant and the readability perfect. No longer in need of a charger every five hours, I can listen to music, read news, post photos and Google Map the whole day without problems. The battery is great. 

If you are a person who spends a lot of time on you phone, who prefers to get things done on it, depends on it a lot for work, reads longer articles and generally are tech-savvy- this is the phone for you. Talking on the phone may look a little awkward, but who really talks on the phone these days anyway? 

I give iPhone 6 plus my very best recommendations. Don't let size scare you. Bigger is better.
