Capture 4K. Flawlessly.
Its defining characteristic is its size, which occupies a nice middle ground between the 4-inch iPhone 5S and the 7. Befitting its moniker, the 6 Plus is on the large side, measuring 6. Dimensions aside, the iPhone 6 Plus feels better in the hand than the Note. Like previous iPhones, it's made of matte aluminum, but where harsh lines and chamfered edges give the iPhone 5 a stark, industrial feel, the iPhone 6 Plus nestles more comfortably in your hand rather than cutting into it.
That noted, the rounded shape -- complete with glass that blends into the rounded edges -- provides a less distinctive appearance. That curved glass will be familiar to owners of Nokia Lumia devices, and the inset lines of plastic on the back are reminiscent of the HTC One.
Though the iPhone 6 Plus looks and feels great, it lacks the unique styling of its predecessor. Then, of course, there's the home button, front and center below the display, featuring Touch ID functionality, which allows you to unlock the phone quickly with a fingerprint. While this feature is no longer as novel as it was when it debuted, Touch ID remains quicker and more reliable than the fingerprint detection capabilities we've seen on other smartphones.
And with iOS 8, you can use fingerprint access for a wide variety of apps beyond the lock screen and iTunes Store. To avoid any unfortunate thumb-straining incidents, Apple provides the "Reachability" feature: That's a double tap rather than a double press -- the latter of which opens up the app switching screen, as it does on earlier versions of iOS. Though it's handy in theory, we did not find it particularly useful in practice.
For example, if you want to open a folder of icons on the top of the display, a double-tap brings that folder down. Tap on the folder and it opens, but then slides back up to the top again.
You need to double-tap on the Home button again to bring it down a second time so that you can select an icon within. It's simply too much tapping to be of regular use, even for those with short thumbs, though it could be handy if you're standing on a bus or train and need your other hand to hang on.
