Like many people, I preordered a new iPhone 6 Plus as soon as I possibly could. I didn’t choose the iPhone 6 Plus, the clown-shoe version of this device, but went for the standard-sized model. I’ve often desired to have a slightly larger screen, so I welcomed the idea of a 4.7-inch iPhone. I thought it would allow me to see more content, and use larger fonts, which would help my aging eyes. After using it for a few days, however, I’m not sure that I really want to keep it. I may return my iPhone 6 Plus Cases Designer and continue using the iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6 Plus is a beautiful device. The display has rich, sharp colors, excellent contrast, and the large fonts make everything more readable. The design is sleek and smooth. But the problem is how the iPhone 6 Plus fits in my hand.
I’m used to doing most things with my iPhone one-handed. With an iPhone 5s, I can comfortably, and securely, hold the phone in my hand and reach almost any part of its display to tap it. The iPhone 6 Plus is very different. If I hold it securely, I can reach part of its display, and tap some buttons and icons, but for much of what I do I need two hands.
Reachability feels like Apple admitting the iPhone 6 Plus is too big to use one-handed. It’s a good idea, but in practice it takes too much tapping.
(The iPhone 6 Plus Plus is obviously a different animal. If you buy that, you know that you must use it with two hands. I don’t think any human beings have hands large enough to do much with that device one-handed.)
This is quite unexpected, as I have very large hands. With the iPhone 6 Plus Cases Australia, I don’t feel that I can comfortably hold the phone and use it in one hand without running the risk of dropping it. I always put cases on my iPhones, because they are expensive—I buy unlocked phones—but I don’t really like to test how well these cases work, if you get my drift. I bought a case for my iPhone 6 Plus, and, while it is very thin, it still adds an additional half-inch to the width of the phone, making it even harder to hold.
