It’s been a while since anything been written. Since that time, I’ve been focused on my radio on Blogtalkradio.com. That has been a tremendous success! I decided to come back to this form because I felt that in order to talk about certain news, I need to place it in a written form.
This site is continue to be a great source for readers to get the truth about about technology. Every once in awhile, I may expand to other topics but the core will always be about technology. I want to that everyone that has followed me for the past few years. I’ve been really humbled by the response I’ve gotten from my readers and listeners.
Let’s continue to embrace technology to enhance our lives.
It’s not often that I have to eat my words. Let me take that back. It’s not often that I have to recant something that I’ve said before. For the longest, I have talked about how ridiculous phone screen sizes have gotten. I’ve talked about Android and reason why there’s screens a larger. Even when Samsung first came out with the Note series and how those phones for over 5 inches.. Now I’m going to have to take all of that back because of iPhone 6 Plus.
Why did I choose this monstrosity?
Since Apple decided to come out with two different versions of iPhone 6, I had to make a decision on which one I wanted to get. It was between the iPhone 6 which has a 4.7 inch screen and the iPhone 6 Plus which has a 5.5 inch screen. I never really thought about getting a large-screen phone simply because I was worried about how to handle phone and whether or not if it was really just going to be too big for me.
I took a look at the iPhone 6 and was really impressed that it didn’t feel that much larger then my iPhone 5. The quality of the screen the quality of the camera is really impressed me. But I decided to go with iPhone 6+. I thought to myself, if Apple was going to release this product, Then it can’t be that bad. Now, I did not get it when it first came out because I needed to wait until my contract ended.
In between the time of the launch until the time I got it, I took some serious thinking in order to decide which one that I was going to get. Ultimately it just came down to really being different. I wanted to use a product that would be large enough for me to continue to use comfortably as phone but also incorporate some iPad features.
You’ve decided, now what?
Now that I decided on iPhone 6 Plus, it was time for me to actually go out and purchase it. I initially went to the AT&T store and only guessed that it would not be there and I would have to place one on order. When I was told that it would take 4 to 5 weeks to get the model that I wanted, I cringed at the though of waiting that long. The AT&T salesperson told me that if I needed it quickly that going to the apple store be the best bet.
I never really thought about doing that because it’s been a long time since I’ve had to stand in line for a phone. So the following day I went to an Apple store and in line only to find out that they were out of stock. When I was told that they’re out of stock, I resigned to the fact that I would have to come back to the store and check on inventory level every day. When talking to one of the Apple people there, He suggested that I go to findiphone.apple.com and see what stores in area had it in stock.
While at the store, I decided to get on my phone just to check the website out. I discovered that the original Apple store I went to had it available. So rushed back to the other Apple store I got in line and finally was able to get my iPhone 6 Plus.
What are your impressions?
When I opened up the box, I was just in awe all with the beauty of it. As you can see from pictures above, the design reminds me of the very first iPhone I came out back in 2007. Why initially turn the screen on but also by the clarity.
Truthfully, when I started using iPhone 6 Plus, I really didn’t notice the speed difference from the iPhone 5. I attributed that to the fact I didn’t have anything on the phone because I needed to wait until I got back home so that I can completely restore my phone. But, I was able to have all my contacts, Calendar and reminders on my phone once I left the Apple store. Thank you iCloud!
What’s happened since?
One of the things that I’ve noticed with this phone is that despite the size, it shrinks after a period of time. What I mean is that the device itself disappears in your hands. The size of the screen, the way that the apps to use the screen, being able to see the details in your pictures has truly impressed me since I’ve gotten this phone. Now after a while, I’ll explain in detail about individual things that I really admire about this product but right now I highly recommend this product more so than just iPhone 6.
