    So I have been using my lovely new iPhone 6 for two days now and I just wanted to share my love and appreciation for it with fellow ifolks. It has been a pleasant surprise for me since I was completely against buying an iPhone 6 due to its larger size and rounded form factor. I still think the sharp design of my 5S is one of the most beautiful phone designs. But after having the i6 in my hands for a while now I am beginning to appreciate more and more the usefulness of the new rounded design. Its like a gorgeous pebble and I absolutely love the feel of it!

    I was very apprehensive regarding one-handed usability of the i6 but I must say its fairly manageable with one hand (and I have rather small hands). I particularly like the "reachability" trick. The battery life is amazing as well. At the end of the day, I am one happy lad.

    I hope you are enjoying your iPhone 6 as much, if not more. Cheers!

    Glad to hear the 6 is growing on you. I too thought the 5s was a better design, but after having the 6 for a few months I feel the 5s feels clunky to me, funny how things grow on you.

    I also just got the iPhone 6. I had the 5. The 5 lasted for over two years but it finally gave up the ghost. I am very happy with the new phone too! Love the camera! And the feel of the device. So far so good. Congrats on your new purchase.

    Just got my iPhone6 as an upgrade from my a BlackBerry Z10 and I'm really enjoying the experience. I've used BB since 2008 and wanted to try something different.
    This phone is great, I'm just getting used to it. The the fact that everything works, the choice of apps and the speed is fantastic.

    Thanks for sharing the photo. On paper it does not sound like much of an improvement from the 5s camera but I found the 6 has a much improved camera.

    The wife and I picked up our 6's last night and I must concur! What an amazing piece of hardware. Thin and fast! Really don't want to put s case on it but it's inevitable.

    That's a problem which has been irritating as well. I love holding the naked phone but it also feels slippery and I do NOT want to drop it. But I also don't want to cover it up! I have ordered Apple's leather case. Still feel sad about having to cover this beautiful piece of machinery.

    I was very close to buying the leather case last night, but they are not cheap. Going to look into a Spigen case because they look pretty slick.

    The leather case is amazing! It makes the phone look even better and adds some grip to it. You'll love it! 😀

    Good to know. I read that the sides stick up a bit around the front screen and it hampers finger movement for sliding backwards and forward. Is this an issue?

    No, I haven't had any issues with swiping back and forth across the screen with the case. It sticks up just enough to have a lip so the screen is protected if set screen down, but doesn't interfere with the screen.
