Upgraded to iPhone 6 Plus from Lumia 1520: An on Going Review

Today I took the plung and decided to speed to refresh and upgrade to an iPhone 6 Plus (stupid name) in shiney silver. I fondled the 6+ and its younger brother in the Apple store for a good hour before I made my decision but I am 100% confident I made the right choice. BTW i was about to go with Vodafone but they messed up twice and lost me, i'm still with O2.

 

Inital Views compaired to my beloved Lumia 1520.

 

Its actually smaller by only a CM all around but it feels much better in my hand. The curved edges and rounded sides make it not only nicer to hold but more natural, it feels like an iPhone should be. To acompany this it actually feels lighter in my hand, really light, but the first thing I did was order an case because I will drop it. The screen is amazing, bright, clear and equally as good as the Lumia. Another great thing I noticed is the Touch ID works first time, EVERYTIME! my girlfriend had so many problems with her 5S so removed it. 

 

Feel in my hand and pocket in comparion:

 

In my hand its feels very comfortable and not awkward at all. The Lumia did feel a bit, heavy, clumbsy and awkward at times. In my pocket I constantly forget it is there, seriously. The Lumia has pointed edges soit would stick in my leg from time to time while the 6+ has none of this. 

 

Have I tried to bend them:

 

Lumia - NO

6 Plus - NO

 

Will i try and bend them:

 

Shut up!

 

Features I will miss on my Lumia:


Glance screen

Double tap to wake up

Wireless charging. 

 

At this moment in time I am still getting used to the new features but I will ask @Toby for edit rights and update you on the following points in comparision to the Lumia:

-Battery

-Camera

- extra features

 

Anything else you want to know? add below and I will try it... NO BENDING!

Hi

A good choice of phone. Smiley Wink

I always take 2-3 same copies of my thumb print for touch I.d and to date have not had any issues.

The display is I believe awesome.

I think you'll be impressed by the battery life ~ I am.

I agree about the curved edges. It's so comfortable to hold albeit a little slippy a lot like most phones. I opted to use the Apple Leather case. Which one have you chosen ?

My lumia used to last 2-3 days on light use, 1.5 days on light use.

I went for the 16GB as I swore I would stop buying top spec items and not use them to their potential. I can stream my music via Spotify and iTunes match, i use my tablet for games and reading books and magazine.

Glad to hear it. I may try and bend it but that will be post a bottle of whiskey.

DropBox comes in handy for me.

Don't forget Google or Amazon music too for a depository of all your own music available across platforms.
