The iPhone 6 Plus preview hands-on

An iPhone with a 5.5-inch display? A few years ago, it seemed as though Apple would never relent to doing such a thing — after all, a 3.5-inch display was more than sufficient at the time. In 2014, however, it’s a bit of a different story. There’s a wide variety of phone sizes out there, and a lot of different markets that Apple could appeal to by offering a large device. With the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple is now able to address those who don’t mind using a big phone for its extra screen real estate and larger battery. We had the opportunity to play with the Plus for a spell after Apple’s keynote this morning, and it’s got a bright future ahead. Check out our photos and video below as we continue to bring you our thoughts on the giant iPhone.

First, the elephant in the demo room was the phone’s size. After all, 5.5-inch screens won’t appeal to everyone, especially folks who have been used to 3.5- and 4.0-inch iPhones for the last seven years. But we brought a 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with us to compare, and while the Note takes advantage of the S Pen and its litany of features, it’s also just a tad wider and thicker than the Plus. Apple’s version also benefits from having curved edges which are actually easier to grip onto than I was originally expecting; I’m used to carrying phones with large displays, and the iPhone 6 Plus is just as comfortable to hold as most other devices its size. click below for more…
