I finally did it! I went out today and upgraded my IPhone 5S 32GB Gold to a Space Gray 128GB IPhone 6 Plus!
I was admittedly a bit sceptical at first. After all the things I've heard about the 6 and 6 plus bending... I was really concerned. Granted, I'm quite gental with my mobile devices, but I really didn't like what I'd been hearing about how easy they could break. I went into an AT&T store however and looked at one. The first thing which really attracted me was just how classy the 6 Plus looks in general. It's a really really nice feel/look for those of you who haven't yet gotten to see one.
You all were not kidding about the phone being much much bigger significantly than my 5S! At first, I thought I'd find it a bit too! big, but the more that I'm using it, the more I'm actually growing to really, really! like that extra bit of real estate.
As for the Alex voice, yeah, I know I could get 'em on my 5S, and believe me, I have done so, but man, Wow! Goodness! Gr'racious! he sounds good on the 6 Plus! I'm very impressed. I also can't get over how responsive Voiceover seems to be. Simply incredible!
Did they increase the ram/processor from the 5S to the 6 Plus? They must have, significantly, as over all, I'm noticing that things in general seem to be far more smoothe, not to mention more stable. I'm having far less crashes than before, I'll sure tell you that!
Even Siri seems to be a little bit more clear. I'm not sure with the female Nicki voice if they just changed her inflection a bit on the 6 and 6 plus, or if it's over all just more clear.
Some of you might know that I have a teeny little bit of vision. Not much, but definitely a small amount. I noticed that the screen on the 6 Plus is way! way way sharper. And that's saying something, seeing that normally, I don't really care that much about the screen quality of things. This however is absolutely stunning! The first time I brought up a picture of one of my friends that I took about a year ago, I immediately could see a huge difference! I wouldn't call it night and day difference, no, but it's definitely very noticeable.
As for the internal speaker, I was incredibly impressed already with the 5S, but when I heard the sound, and the volume of the 6 Plus, I was absolutely taken aback! Even my mother was just like... Holy! Sh**! I put a song by a contemporary Christian artist, one of my favorites, Chris Rice: Deep Enough to Dream, through the speaker, and almost hit the roof! For an internal speaker on a mobile device, especially a mobile phone, and remember, this is coming from a professional musician/audio engineer who uses ProTools on a daily basis... even for me, I'd say the sound is earthshattering! By far, this is the best sound that I ever have heard in my life! from a mobile device.
In conclusion, I am so glad I did this! Apple has disappointed me a few times before in some respects, but definitely not this time! I'm actually eating crow right now terribly! This guy is freaking amazing! How about other IPhone 6 Plus users? Do you all echo these same opinions?
