Review: Apple iPhone 6 Plus for AT&T

Form Performance Basic Extras Wrap-Up Comments  72  

The iPhone 6 Plus is a monster. It's by far the most powerful smartphone Apple has ever made. As far as big phones go, it competes well with entries from Samsung, LG, Nokia, and others. If you're a fan of phablets, the iPhone 6 Plus should be at the top of your list for several reasons.

It is among the thinnest and lightest big-screened phones out there, and the build quality is top notch. The 6 Plus has one of the best displays I've ever seen, and its performance on AT&T's network was way above average. Battery life is excellent - perhaps reason alone to choose the 6 Plus over the iPhone 6. Perhaps the only core weakness is in the phone call department, which I'd rate as just below average.

iOS 8 is adept and the 6 Plus offers a few usability tricks, such as landscape apps, that make it more flexible. I saw speedy performance across the board on every app I tested. Further, the iPhone 6 Plus has a fantastic camera and produces videos worthy of evening news broadcasts.

One caveat here is that the 6 Plus does sometimes require two hands to use and doesn't necessarily fit into all pockets. These characteristics aren't exclusive to the 6 Plus, though, and can be applied to most phablets in general. The other missing feature is true multitasking, such as running two apps on the screen at the same time.

Otherwise, the iPhone 6 Plus is an incredible handset and well worth your consideration.
