2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality, with Apple's famed attention to detail
  • Beautiful design with premium choice of materials (unibody aluminium frame), solid construction, and iconic looks
  • Super slim
  • Rounded sides, make it more comfortable to hold than for instance the chamfered beveled edge of the iPhone 5S
  • The Health app is the most extensive health based app to date, that can pick data from both internal sensors, and 3rd party peripherals, and acts as a centralized hub for all of the user's health stats, including anything from their activity, weight, and heart rate, to blood pressure, blood glucose, and vitamin intake - all this data is also easily shareable with your doctor
  • Enhanced keyboard functionality with QuickType word prediction
  • The Touch ID biometric touch sensor is the best, most accurate, most responsive fingerprint sensor around
  • Beautiful large display with potent brightness, wide viewing angles, and superb color accuracy
  • "Hey, Siri" trigger for Siri voice commands
  • Buttery smooth web browser, and a great browsing experience on the large screen
  • Enhanced layout in landscape mode with certain apps (to exploit the large display) improves productivity
  • Buttery smooth, slick performance all-round, and even with graphics intensive mobile games
  • Improved multitasking menu which now also has recent contacts
  • Stunning camera with simple usability, instant focus, tons of new features, and as usual, amazing picture/video quality, along with optical image stabilization, which takes it even one step further ahead of the already brilliant iPhone 6 camera
  • Simple, effective image editing
  • With its even larger display, powerful speaker, and snappy performance, the iPhone 6 Plus is an amazing media consumption device all-round - and again, because of the larger display, one step ahead of the iPhone 6 in this regard
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life
  • iOS 8 is beautiful and simple and brings in tons of functionality upgrades
  • Better spotlight search which now also has wikipedia, itunes and other results
  • Support for 3rd party keyboards
  • Support for VoLTE - voice over LTE, to provide wideband high-quality calls, where network supported
  • NFC and Apple Pay have the potential to revolutionize mobile payments
  • Good build quality
  • Nice, aesthetic design, with a faux leather finish at the back
  • Slim profile
  • Good speed/performance
  • 128GB storage with expansion Fast recharge time
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The big footprint of the iPhone 6 Plus is not for everybody - this phone will not be the easiest to carry around in your pocket
  • Average display
  • Bloated UI
  • While the 3X optical zoom on the Zenfone Zoom is brilliant ands adds versatility, the overall image quality is nothing groundbreaking for a phone in this price range
  • Average battery life
