Engadget Review

The iPhone 6 Plus is difficult to use one-handed, not to mention more uncomfortable than similar-sized phones. In exchange, though, you get more of an iPad-like user experience on a much smaller device. It also has better battery life than the smaller iPhone 6, as well as a better camera. Keep that in mind as you're deciding between the two devices.

This is my third iPhone and it also replaced my secondary (personal cell) phone which was an excellent quad-core Android with 1GB ram but this iPhone 6 + could run circles around it! From fit and finish to reliable reception and call quality this is the best phone I have ever owned in all major categories, hands down!I won't say I'm a power user but I do use it a lot and so far I don't have a single complaint.

I've never enjoyed a device (particularly a cellphone) as much as I do the iPhone 6 Plus!
