Why I converted to the Plus for the 6S refresh...

After much deliberation and having gone back and forth on the benefits and disadvantages, I decided on pre-ordering the iPhone 6S Plus in the Silver and 128 GB configuration.  This decision comes nearly a year after having first purchased the iPhone 6 Plus back in 2014 and then shortly after (1 day later) putting a post up on Craigslist titled, "Trade me your iPhone 6 for my 6 Plus".  If you were familiar with the scarcity issues of the 6 Plus when it first came out it's needless to say that I found a taker quite quickly last year.

This year, I had the opportunity to use an iPhone 6 for my job as a Mobile Security Architect for a government sub-contractor.  During the time I've used it, I've grown to love the additional screen real estate as well as the optical image stabilization which is absent on the iPhone 6.  Couple these two benefits with the manageability of the device with the current case I have on it, and I've done pretty well with the transition.

I've just ordered two cases for the 6S Plus I'll be getting in the mail next week:

One to match my car's interior (MKVII GTI S) from RedBubble


Another exact copy of the case I have on my work iPhone 6 Plus

I do have small hands for a man, but with manageable cases and the fact that I'm trying to carry the phone in my Camelbak more often these days, I think I'm going to like my new device.

Rationale for making the switch to the Plus

  • Better camera with the Optical Image Stabilization
  • Manageable size when carried in a my bag (camelbak) aka Man Purse
  • Better battery life compared to the 6S
  • More screen real estate
