Sneaky Apple upped the ante by releasing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at the same time. Both are awesome, but let's face it, choosing the right type is like choosing which flavour ice cream to go for after a long, tiring, hot trek under the sun. When it’s right in front of you, you just want it all!
To help you out, we've compiled some tips you can use to decide which iPhone 6 to get.
What's Your Favourite Colour?
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have the same colours available. There's Silver, Gold and Space Grey. Grey is the go-to classic. It's not quite black but it's pretty close. Gold was a big hit with the iPhone 5 and it's perfect for dainty ladies and cool gents who don't mind carrying bling around. Silver is great for those who find the gold just a touch tacky. All three types are made from anodized aluminium. The gold and silver come with a white faceplate while the grey is decked in solid black.
How to Choose:
Go with what catches your eye! If you get tired of how it looks, grab a case and cover it. You'll find tons of iPhone 6 cases today. Ahem, might we suggest The Dairy for that? You won’t be disappointed! We promise!
What Suits Your Lifestyle?
Sure, owning an iPhone 6 is amazing but does it suit your work and lifestyle? Apple made the iPhone 6 to suit different folks, from Busy Buffy to Casual Carrie. In the business and work front, the iPhone 6 is a workhorse. Use it for checking your emails, connecting online, calling, messaging on the go and so much more!
On the other hand, with the iPhone 6 Plus, you get more screen space and better legibility. If you churn out tons of emails, write down notes or calendar events with your phone but despise the fact that the screen is too small, then go for the iPhone 6 Plus. You can read, type and do things much easier.
How to Choose:
Go for something you won’t mind using everyday for work or for play. And get one with the screen size that won’t drive you nuts. Capiche?
Which One Fits Your Hand Better?
Size and ergonomics are two major factors between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. When buying your own, make sure you're comfortable using it. Women might prefer the smaller iPhone 6 instead of the 6 Plus simply because the latter can be too unwieldy. For men, however, most find the size of the 6 Plus just fine. And it fits in most men's pocket pants anyway.
Ergonomics-wise, it's necessary to have a phone you can handle with just one hand if necessary. Sure the 'reachability' function is nice but the more important features, particularly the ones you use a lot should be easy for you to access as well.
How to Choose:
Pick the iPhone 6 that fits your hand and totally comfortable for you.
And that’s it!
Choosing your iPhone 6 is no rocket science. Bottom line is, pick something you love. It might take a bit of soul searching (along with some ice cream or cake) but whether you get the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you’re still awesome nonetheless!
The good news though, even if you purchase one and find that it's not to your liking. You can always swap it in the first 14 days. Most Apple stores accept a swap provided it’s still practically in mint condition.
