It's amazing how quickly humans can adapt to a new norm.
When I got the 6 Plus on Friday, I kept thinking about what a monster of a thing it was. A few days later, when I pick up my partner's 5s, it feels constrained and too tiny.
Battery life on the 6 Plus is well worth putting up wit the size for me.

I ordered a iphone 6 at around 11:05am on the 26th. Never ordered a phone from the Apple store before and I am suuuper excited!!! At the present time it is schedule to arrive before the estimated dates given by Apple. Currently it's in Hong Kong TNT. Does anybody know how long order's roughly stay sitting at the Hong Kong depot?

goods usually travel from Hong Kong to Sydney, Sydney to Auckland.

This can happen as quickly as over night, from memory the freighters usually leave Sydney at 2am ish.

I would be surprised if you didn't see it before the weekend, however I don't work for Apple or TNT so this is just my opinion!




I know a little more than nothing but not much...

I've had things (often) get from China and the USA to Auckland faster than they get from Auckland to my house 80km from Wellington...!!

mattbush:
joker97: Sounds like you need the 6.

Unless you like to take good pictures, then you need the plus. Simple as that.


The 6 + takes better pictures?


hi i have read the reviews - there is very little difference in the 2 cameras MOST of the time EXCEPT in low light, where the plus would use a lower shutter speed to enable use of lower ISO and [SLIGHTLY] less grainy pictures, apart from that very very little difference, if any.

sorry.

The OIS does make video look better though.

One thing I have noticed is that because the Power button is now opposite the Volume buttons, it is all too easy to accidentally lock the phone if you have the phone in horizontal orientation for taking a photo using the Volume buttons as the shutter button. Your right thumb naturally grips the bottom right edge, and voilà - you press the power button and the phone sleeps!

Yes but I take back my statement of go for the plus if y taking photos and videos is one's thing. It's all in the implementation I guess. I shoot dslrs and ois makes a huge difference in giant lenses.

Now to convince my wife to get the 6 minus. The autofocus is leaps and bounds better than the 5s.

Ooooh wouldn't that be great. However I live in the Manawatu area so possibly not. I have noticed from reading the threads that Aucklanders do have the benefit of, well, living in Auckland which is faster delivery times.
