For quite some time now I have been thinking about getting a new phone. I’ve researched the entire web for hours looking for the best phone to buy and last weekend I finally did it, I bought a new phone. I ended up buying the Iphone 6 Plus in Gold. Today I’m going to show it to you guys and let you guys know what I think of it. If you’re interested in finding out more about this phone, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with discussing the design. The Iphone 6 Plus has a very classic Apple design. It’s a very thin phone with rounded edges and a smooth overall look to it. It looks very, very pretty in my opinion. The only thing that’s different between the Iphone 6 and 6 Plus, when it comes to design, is that this one has a larger screen. It’s 5.5″ and I have to admit it’s pretty huge. My previous phone was 5.3″ I believe so I am used to bigger phones (which is why I didn’t want to go for the regular one) but it’s big.
Because of the large screen this phone is ideal for watching Youtube videos or Netflix in bed. It’s also great for doing blog-related things on my phone. Overall I think it’s a gorgeous phone. I like the huge screen and even though I do get a lot of people that say “that thing is huge!” I think it’s amazing.
When I mentioned I wanted to buy an Iphone my friend recommended me to go for one with a lot of storage. It might be a bit more expensive now, but it’s worth the investment. I always struggled with my storage being full on my old phone and I know how frustrating it is to have to delete things in order to download a new app or take pictures.
Because of that I decided to go for the 128 GB version. It definitely is a little more expensive, but in my opinion it’s totally worth it.
Since I’m a blogger and taking pictures is part of what I like to do, I was very curious to find out what the camera of this phone is like. Of course it doesn’t come close to the quality of my Canon but for a phone it’s actually pretty good. However, it does depend on the lighting whether your picture is going to end up being very sharp and clear or very pixel-like.
Compared to my previous phone it does do better at taking pictures in the dark. It even has this function where you tap on the moon symbol and pictures taken in the dark will instantly become more visible. My previous phone just couldn’t take pictures in the dark at all. So even though they are a little pixel-like, it’s better than it used to be for me.
I used to think it was the most important thing ever to buy a phone with an incredible battery life, but throughout the years I realised that whatever phone you buy, the battery life will always suck in the end. So, at this point the battery life of my Iphone 6 Plus is fine. It’s not outstanding, it’s not disappointing either. Obviously it will slowly get worse and worse, but that does happen to every phone.
One thing you do have to keep in mind: you can’t change the battery of this phone. However there are stores that offer battery replacements for your Iphone so in the end you get get it changed if you want to.
Android to Apple
I used to have the Samsung A5, which obviously is an Android phone. I decided to switch to Apple because I already have a MacBook and I thought it might sync better. I know that’s not a very good reason, but it was enough for me. Anyway, what lots of people ask me is “is it very different?” or “is it hard to get used to?”. I have to say that when I switched from a Windows laptop to this MacBook I had way more difficulties. Back then it did take me quite a while to get used to it.
The Iphone however isn’t that hard to get used to. It’s just a phone and phones are all pretty similar. Of course some things are found in a different place but I personally didn’t struggle too much with it.
Overall I’m really glad I bought this phone. It looks really pretty, it’s smooth, it’s sleek and it works quickly. It has a ton of storage, it takes reasonably good pictures at night and I just love everything about it. It might be a way overpriced phone, but I’m obsessed with it and I’m glad I decided to buy it.
By the way: lot’s of people ask me if it isn’t really unhandy that this phone is so big. First of all: it’s not much bigger than my previous phone or a ton of other phones out there, it’s just big compared to the regular Iphone. And second of all: I don’t think its unhandy. I actually really like it. It’s really easy to type on it and it’s great having such a large screen when you’re watching Youtube video’s or Netflix!
So, that concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which phone you have and why you love it!
