Apple have finally taken the leap onto the phablet market, after years of producing only phones and tablets, and the iPhone 6 Plus is the best mobile that the company has produced so far. With big screen, decent specs and a new OS thrown in as well, the 6 Plus is a truly great device for Apple lovers.
What do you have to look forward to on the 6 Plus? The five and a half inch Retina display, for one, it’s a joy to behold. But there’s also super fast connectivity and a boat load of internal upgrades as well. If you’re biggest beef with Apple has been the tiny size of their screens, then the iPhone 6 Plus is here to save the day. It’s a top of the line phablet with design that could only have come from Apple.
The biggest design difference in the iPhone 6 Plus is that it looks far more like an iPad than an iPhone. That’s thanks to the smoothly tapering edges and the rounded corners. But this slim line design plus a full metal body means that the 6 Plus sits in your hand far more comfortably than many other big screen phablets. This is without a doubt a premium piece of tech and it both looks and feels the part.
But what about under the cosmetics? Apple have given the 6 Plus a whole lot of upgrades, with nearly every spec on the 6 Plus beating the older 5S model. That means that you’re getting performance as well as looks, and what more could you ask for?
It’s not often that Apple products improve enough over one generation to justify the price of buying a new mobile after only a year, but the iPhone 6 Plus is an exception. If you’re using the 5S then you’ll see a clear difference with the 6 Plus. This is Apple’s first phablet device, and it’s a doozy. Fast, light and quite simply awesome.
First, let’s check out the internals here. A word of warning though: Apple have never focussed on giving us big spec numbers, understanding that it’s user experience that’s important rather than overpowered processors. The 6 Plus runs a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, an Apple A8 chip set and 2 GB of RAM. Sure, those numbers aren’t huge, but in practice you’re getting a mobile that’s extremely responsive to input as well as being pretty darn speedy as well.
Operating system is obviously iOS, but this is the new iOS 8. What’s changed? It’s still the look and feel that you love, but there have been a fair few tweaks and additions. Classics like email and SMS have had new functions added, then Siri gets full music recognition software thanks to Shazam, and there’s a nice new native keyboard as well, giving you better text prediction.
The user experience with the iPhone 6 Plus is pretty much what you’d expect from Apple. Simple, intuitive, smooth and clean, with enough power to get the job done and not a jot more. But why waste money on bigger processors if you don’t need them? Performance on the 6 Plus is just about perfect.
Of course the biggest selling point of the 6 Plus is going to be its big screen, and it’s a full five and a half inch monster. Apple have added a few things to make sure that it’s not to unwieldy though. You can shrink the display down into the bottom corner of the phone so that you can use it one handed, for example, or you can flip to horizontal mode (even on the home screen, which thus far iPhones haven’t been capable of).
Resolution wise you’re looking at full HD, 1080 x 1920 pixel resolutions which gives you somewhere around 401 PPI. The display is sharp and well defined, certainly. However, this is an Apple Retina screen, so you’re also getting second to none colour reproduction as well as some fantastic viewing angles, something that Retina has always done better than AMOLED.
Whatever it is you’re doing on the 6 Plus, the view is incredible. On screen typing is a breeze, and even top end chores like picture editing are easy to look at. Phablets have some downsides, including their large size, but the display quality on the 6 Plus more than makes up for these.
Moving on the the cameras on the iPhone 6 Plus. The front facing FaceTime cam hasn’t had many changes, it’s still 1.2 MP, but it does get HDR capability as well as better focus and better facial recognition.
On the rear we still getting the traditional Apple 8 MP camera. Don’t freak out though, you’re getting some very impressive photos. Mostly this is because Apple have improved the camera sensor for faster focus time and improved digital noise reduction, but also because HDR is default on the rear camera.
There’s the normal tricks you’d expect, including panorama and burst mode, and optical (not digital) image stabilisation. And you’re getting the dual tone LED flash that we saw launched with the iPhone 5S for better colours in low light.
You will be taking some sweet shots with the 6 Plus, so don’t be mislead by that low MP count on the rear facing camera. This phone takes some seriously good pictures.
There’s news on the connections front as well, with both new possibilities and improvements. You can now call over both WiFi and 4G. Not only that, but you’re getting faster speeds. Apple claim that the 6 Plus gets up to three times faster WiFi speeds and that 4G is capable of up to 150 Mbps, which is impressive.
You’ll get full NFC ability as well, which is set to be used for Apple’s new digital payments system. However, that system is currently only available to US customers, though it should be hitting the UK sometime soon.

There are a fair few phablet devices available on the market right now, but the iPhone 6 Plus competes pretty well for two reasons. First, because it’s intuitive and easy to use and second because it’s just so good looking.
There are extras thrown in too. Better battery life and a barometer sensor, for example, as well as the Apple fingerprint scanner for security, iCloud storage and all the other things you expect to see on an iPhone.
Is this phone perfect? No, there are a couple of things that we’d change, namely expandable storage options and more MP on the rear camera. But these are forgiveable sins on the new Apple, because the iPhone 6 Plus is such a great little device. The screen is perfection, and performance is none too shabby either. A truly great buy.
