Tom’s Tech: iPhone 6 Plus

There are a myriad of options when it comes to smartphones today. The iPhone 7 will be released this fall. Samsung’s Note 7 is the newest Android phone available. However, the iPhone 6 Plus is what I use on a daily basis.

The camera performs well. The CPU is still quick when compared to the 6S. I don’t get the force touch features, but I don’t see many people using that anyway. I guess the 6 Plus is good enough. I’d like to be wow’ed by a new phone, but I really like iOS, therefore I don’t want to switch to Android, and the ‘S’ line of phones didn’t offer enough for me to spend money on an upgrade. The iPhone 7 will keep the same external design as the 6 and, as with every new version, have internal enhancements. I’ll likely end up with the 7 Plus, if only because I feel that when a phone is two years old it is noticeably slower than the current generation of phones.

I mentioned not wanting to switch to an Android smartphone. I have used many. HTC phones are amazing, though I have not touched the two latest Ones. I had the original Samsung Note, and later the S3. Both were okay, but had their issues. Mainly the bloatware Samsung insists on using even today. Reviews of the Note 7 make me want to give it a try, but in the end I know I’d just come back to an iOS device.

I’ve always rooted for the Nexus line of phones to be a huge success. The thought of true Android the way Google intended it is very appealing. I have sparingly used the latest Nexus 6P over the last month. This was more to test GoogleFi service than the phone though. It seems like a very good device but I haven’t used it enough to give a thorough opinion on it.

The good news is there are many good options. I choose iOS, but you can’t go wrong with any of the flagship Android devices either.

What is

No, I do not want to be hacked.
Let me repeat – I do not want to be hacked.
Am I a hacker?  Not so much.
