VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

based on the following sites

PROS

  • The optical image stabilization added to the device's camera makes it one of the best smartphone cameras available.
  • Software customizations can take advantage of the large screen to turn the device into landscape mode and view two-column apps.
  • The battery life of the iPhone 6 Plus is more than sufficient to get through a busy workday.

CONS

  • The device is awkward to hold in one hand, leading you to feel like you're going to drop it.
  • The lines across the back of the device (which function as the antenna) don't do the device any favors in the looks department.
  • Android devices have been this size for a while, giving Android makers an advantage over Apple when it comes to leveraging the screen.
Apple’s biggest iPhone to date is the iPhone 6 Plus. With a screen measuring 5.5 inches, the iPhone 6 Plus is undoubtedly a phablet, boasting an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization, a 2915 mAh battery, and Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint reader. The iPhone 6 Plus is available in gray, silver, or gold across the major U.S. wireless carriers.

Reachability is the easiest, best way I’ve seen a phone maker deal with this common phablet problem. Double tap (not a press, just a touch tap) on the Home button and the entire top of the screen pulls itself halfway down.

The iPhone 6 Plus is difficult to use one-handed, not to mention more uncomfortable than similar-sized phones. In exchange, though, you get more of an iPad-like user experience on a much smaller device.

That being said, the iPhone 6 Plus is unlike any iPhone before it. Not quite a phone, not yet an iPad, it’s a tweener of a device that’s going to be fantastic for some people and completely wrong for others.

Excellent camera quality produces amazing images. Almost impossible to shoot blurry video, even of uncooperative toddlers.
