iPhone 6 Plus Too Big, Here’s What You Can Do

iPhone 6 plus too big

Did you just got your 'bigger than bigger' iPhone 6 Plus and feeling a bit of buyer's remorse? Or maybe the smaller iPhone 6 is not small enough. Regret is not something that often goes hand in hand with buying a new iPhone. A Samsung phone, maybe. In all seriousness, these days are filled with joy and at worst, minor complaints about battery life. This year is different. Since the first iPhone release, changes to our beloved iPhones were often improvements that didn't drastically change how we hold or use our phones. Software has certainly impacted usability, but the hardware always allowed for one-handed use. The jump to a 4-inch display, still allowed for our thumbs to narrowly reach each quadrant. As Android phones grew, big phones were … [Read more...]

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus deliver on much of what consumers have been wanting from Apple. The biggest being the display.

As we see with each new year of iPhones, purchase decisions revolve around which color and storage capacity. Yet again, those are part of your decision process.

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus

Today was a big day for new products, even by Apple's standards. Forget about the new Apple Watch for a moment, the iPhone announcements alone represented a major shift for the company and you. The post-event focus would normally shift to discussions regarding which color or storage size. Those will still remain hotly debated discussions, either internally, in forums or across social media.

Will iOS 8 and A Bigger Display Bring Android Users Back To iPhone?

128GB iPhone 6

Strange as this might sound, but people do leave the iPhone for other phones, namely those running Google's Android operating system. Peruse our forums and for the longest time, complaints have been about the smallish display of the iPhone. When Apple bumped the size from 3.5-inches to 4.0-inches, devices from HTC and Samsung were pushing out phones with 4.7-inch displays. The display size creep continued with behemoths like the Note, which effectively created a new Phablet category. If you wanted a phone with a larger display, there were no shortage of offerings from 4.3-inches and upward. Apple to date, has stuck with the 4.0-inch screen for the past two years. History shows us that even if Apple wanted to 'go big', last year was an 's' … [Read more...]
