I’ve had my new shiny iPhone 6 for a week now.
I bought my new investment because I was in desperate need of a new phone as my phone was no longer taking a charge and was starting to show a lot of wear after 2 1/2 years of active use.
I chose the 6 plus iPhone because of it’s size.
No, I am not a Hummer-loving big speaker type of individual.
I’m not the biggest, greatest, kind of person.
I got it because I am over 50.
What They Don’t Get About the iPhone 6 Plus that We Get
Some people refer to this phone as a ‘Phablet”. Others call it ‘monsterous’. There are people who just don’t like the idea of a phone being this big.
Here is what the naysayers don’t get.
Goldilocks got this phone right.
This phone is 5.5″ according to Apple.
The iPhone 6 plus is packed with goodies such as an amazing resolution, better chip, a faster LTE wireless, and a new 8MP iSight camera wand .
However, all of this glitz and glory does not really matter as much as the size does to boomers.
You see, most boomers have an eyesight that prefers the larger screen and easier to read letters once we set our phones to larger type and app settings. Pair the large settings with a large phone and you get an easier to maneuver keyboard.
An easier to maneuver keyboard allows us to hone in on the skills we all acquired in typing class long ago before the typewriter labs were all converted to computer labs.
And this is why boomers like this large new iPhone.
FYI- the best selling phones in the iPhone 6 series- the iPhone 6 in Space Grey, 64GB, made up 27.6% of the total iPhones.
The second most popular iPhone, was the iPhone 6 Plus in Space Grey, 64GB, accounted for 20.2% of the total iPhones.
