I know what you think:
After I had sorted out a few password bumps with my new iPhone 6 this morning I got to use it with different apps and in different situations throughout the day. And I have to say I miss the compactness of my 5s!
This sounds silly and I have heard the same from others before (again confirmed by Krishna and Alex today): when you get a big phone with a 4.7 inch or larger screen, you struggle with the size at the beginning. But after a few days you get used to it and you appreciate the large screen so much more.
I believe that.
I was stressed when I was running this morning that the phone, which I have in the pocket of my trunks, would be jumping out and hit the floor right on day 1. This was never a concern with my (heavier) 5s. The 6 is also wonderfully smooth and it’s a joy to hold it at these smooth, round edges. But this also makes it more slippery in situation like working out and even when I hold it in one hand to play a game in the MRT. Again: not a problem with the 5s which is square-edged and gives a much more secure grip in your hand.
The 6 is a marvel, don’t get me wrong.
But this thing is just fricking huge!
Let’s see how I feel about it next week…
