It was my time. As an iPhone S user, this was my turn on the upgrade. As you can see, I was rocking the iPhone 5s. It is now in a box on it’s way to where ever, to be replaced by an iPhone 6s Plus (64GB). Yes, that is the big one, again, as you can see above.
And I like it.
After 2 days, here is the short list.
- The Camera. I’ll show you a few photos below. But, seriously, it’s ridiculous.
- The size. So far, it fits in all pockets and the keyboard is so much nicer to use.
- 3D Touch – I can’t wait for this to be supported by more apps!
- Apple Pay is the future.
I really like the camera as I mentioned above. Besides Apple Pay, it was what I was the most excited about. You can view a few of them at Flickr in full resolution and un-edited. They are quite spectacular. The photos are clear and color correct. The camera is wicked fast as well. I haven’t played with Live Photos yet, but I’m sure that will be pretty neat once I get it figured out.
This phone is quite a bit larger than what I had before. If you are thinking about it but aren’t sure about the size, I recommend a trip to your friendly neighborhood Apple store to check it out. That’s what I did, plus I work with a kid that rocks that big Nexus phone before I decided this was what I wanted.
I still have to get a case for it and am open to suggestions. That or if you have any questions, you know what to do.
