I think if all you've recognized is that it's simply the same phone with a bigger screen...you never intended to give it a fair assessment and you probably made your mind up before you even got the phone. Better battery, better camera, bigger screen, BETTER screen, more orientation options, better WiFi connection, stronger cellular connection...and that's not even considering it's handling of the new OS or it's processing ability.
ALL of those things are noticeable and obvious.
there's nothing to contribute. Op doesn't seem to be happy with the device and that's that. I find these kind of posts unnecessary. What i like is not always going to be what you like and vice versa. I don't get why people need to find validity over their decisions. If he does not like it, take it back and move on. Easy.
That's all fine and dandy. But if its too big for your personal taste, then it is just too big. I tried the "you will get used to the size" but I never did.
I am not debating that. If it is too big, it is too big, no "feature" is going to change that.
Then I guess I'm confused why you quoted my comment when making your own...my retort to the OP was in response to his/her inferring that the iPhone 6 Plus was nothing more than a larger screen. Whether or not they care for the bigger screen was kind of irrelevant to me, because like you said, not everyone is going to like said screen. Trying to say that the 6 Plus is ONLY a bigger screen and nothing more (in terms of change from the previous gen or even the regular 6) is just a false statement...regardless of opinion.
I guess my point is that all those things you listed as "better" aren't that noticeable (especially the camera) to the average user (besides maybe battery life) to justify the size, if one isn't sure about a larger phone. So as someone who has used both quite a bit, I can at least see where OP is coming from with his broad "it is just a bigger iphone 6" statement.
BUT if you are totally comfortable with the bigger size the 6+ is a no brainer and probably worth the few extra bucks.
Except the OP described the phone as nothing more than a bigger screen...which is just simply not true at all.
Apple probably released iPhone 6 plus in a hurry. iOS8 is all right but most of the apps are just up-scaling the routine resolution and making them look big on the 6plus screen. It's like installing iPhone app on iPad. Rather than that they should make a way to downscale the iPad app to iPhone 6 plus.
Such a waste of gorgeous and useful big screen. It feels like a phone for granny's and grandpas with large characters filling up the empty spaces on big screen.
I have used iPhone 3 to 4S. But for me the shape and size of iPhone 5 was a deal breaker - kind of felt abnormal. Moved to android. Used note 2 for few months then HTC one for good 2 years. Then moved to BB z30 and now passport. Really love the experience of passport with really beautiful use of large screen. U can read the whole document or web page in original form with touch keypad. And you can throw anything at it, real multitasking with 8 active windows with no lag. It's amazing at work. Was kind of hoping a good coming back to iPhone.
Hope they fix things.
