6 unxepected things you should know before buying an iPhone 6 Plus

It’s a week today since I picked up my gold iPhone 6 Plus. After seven days of tirelessly trying to track one down, I finally managed to get my hands on one, reserving it in the early hours of the morning.

Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 6 Plus is an amazing phone, but before you go out and buy one, you’d better prepare yourself for the following…

“Has it bent yet?”

Seriously, EVERYONE will ask you this question. From colleagues to courriers (Thanks, DPD guy!). Of course the answer is no, until the next person asks me when, unfortunately, it will be bent around their head.

Your old iPhone will feel unbelievably small.

I never thought of my iPhone 5 as a small phone. But now… “What is this, a phone for ants?”.

Your iPad will become a dust collector.

Since embracing the “phablet” (God, I hate calling it that), I haven’t used my iPad once.

People will laugh at you.

The camera is unbelievable.
iPhone 6 Plus
I’d heard the iPhone 6 Plus camera was good, but nothing prepared me for how good the camera actually is. Photos have an astonishing amount of detail, perfect for landscape shots… not so much for selfies.

Almost all third-party apps look horrendous.

The phone has been out two weeks and only a handful of my apps have been optimised. Scaled apps look, well, scaled. Everything is huge and pixelated. Hurry up and fix this please, developers.
