5 Reasons I Won’t Be Getting the iPhone 6+

Let’s talk about a first world problem that many of us are debating:

Should I Get the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+?

As many Apple heads know, last week was the big announcement of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6+.  This release Apple gives us 2 new smart phones to choose from.  The iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6+. Decisions, decisions.

I’ve been waiting for the new iPhone announcement, as my iPhone 5 was itching to be replaced ever since my husband upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy 5S. So what new iPhone will I be getting? Let me start with what I will not be getting. The iPhone 6+, here is why – IT’S TOO BIG. Here’s the 5 reasons the size just killed it for me on the iPhone 6+

1. Thumb Reach

I saw this chart on Mashable and I had to laugh. My 5’5″ thumb reach is sad.

2. Must Fit in the Wristlet

I carry a wristlet. I don’t want to have to carry a special bag just for this phone.

3. Pocket Fit

On the 10 days a year I wear jeans (yeah, just not a fan), I want to put my phone in my pocket – and with the iPhone 6+ it’s just not going to happen. And in my back pocket? No thanks.

4. Phone not a Tablet

I chuckled when I heard the term phablet – you know, a phone – tablet — that’s what the iPhone 6+ feels like and I am just NOT feeling it. If I wanted an iPad, I would of bought an iPad. It’s like the iPhone 6+ is the new iPad Mini Jr.

5. Cup Holder

With 4 kids, I live in my car. My phone lives in my cup holder. There is no way that phablet is going to fit in my cupholder!

It’s just to damn big people! I feel like we will be looking back on photos of people on iPhone 6+ and thinking similar thoughts to this photo of Zack Morris and his GIGANTIC cellular phone.

  1. my hands are the size of 5 year olds. I will also not be getting a 6+. Went to a festival this weekend with only my phone in my jeans pocket and my drivers license/debit card in the other pocket. I was constantly thinking how nice it is to carry my phone in my pocket.
