6 years ago, I worked out a deal with AT&T that they’re probably having second thoughts about now….but the crux of it is that I get a free phone upgrade every year.  That said…. this year, I went for the big guy, the new iPhone 6+, and I am so glad that I did…because it IS better!   I got mine two days ago.  The new phone  uses incredible new display technology, has a second generation 64-bit processor and motion coprocessor, a much-improved camera, faster cellular and Wi-Fi networking, and a new transaction system called Apple Pay. The list of this phone’s merits goes on and on.  I love it.

The phone feels good in my hand, and I don’t have to squint to see the screen.  The display is brilliant!  I’ve never seen a clearer, brighter phone display screen!   (This is a picture of my screen saver which I sent to my best friend as a Christmas tree.)

This time, I got the maximum amount of memory, too, and that makes a world of difference.  I have a zillion apps and they all run quickly and smoothly.  In particular, my friend and I communicate through two apps that are notorious for dropped calls and for taking up a lot of memory, but on this phone, they work like a charm!



This phone, with a remarkable 5.5-inch display, faster chips, faster networking, and did I mention a MUCH better camera?  The iPhone 6 Plus may not be for everyone, but it is for me.  I like it more than my big iPad and I like it more than my mini iPad.  This size is just right.   For busy  people such as myself,  who want something that proves to be more productive than it is ‘pocketable’, something that can be considered as much huge iPhone as it is tiny iPad, the iPhone 6 Plus is not just a big thing, it’s the best thing.  I truly love this phone!   Oh, and the camera is incredible!  It does time lapsed photos and also has a timer.  8 megapixels and clear as a bell photography.     I am one happy camper with this phone.  Let me tell ya!   This picture is a low-light one.

Now, the down side.  Actually, the iPhone 6+ doesn’t have much of a down side as far as I can tell…but the accessories are expensive.  Also, it doesn’t fit into the cup holder of my car the way the 5S did.  It is also large enough to break if I sit down on it, so I have to be very careful with it. I laid down $65 clams for a nice, hard case and a new tempered glass screen protector.  I bought a CaseMate brand hard shell case in champagne with a kickstand and it seems very nice.  Time will tell, I guess.  The screen protector is flawless.  Really nice.

I give this phone 9.9 out of 10 stars.  I couldn’t be happier with it!
