Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Now i'm terrified, at least it's a manufacturers defect though so it would be a free replacement, but still... I was so terrified i didn't even put my iphone in my pants.

Yeah anyone with the 6 Plus do be careful, it can and will bend if you move the wrong way. It seems to bend quite easily.

Check that link for proof as well as to see how much pressue it takes roughly.

Also ios 8 is no longer available for download because of all the issues it's having. I know i've had wifi and battery problems with my new iPhone 6. Anyone else having these issues?

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Hello Everyone

 

So here is my Review on the iPhone 6 Plus 128GB Space Gray Model. So as many know i have made this wonderful thread ( LOL) & i was number #11 for the 128GB Space Gray iPhone 6 Plus. I got mine shipped on Friday & got it Saturday afternoon after all the systems went up & live. Upon look at the box it looked huge. I did not open the box until later on in the store & noticed how big it is compared to my S5. Everyone in the store was looking at me & at the device. A girl right beside me asked to look at it as her & her mother got the iPhone 6. Its HUGE it thought in my head lol. Turned it on & started setting it up. Pretty easy so far until i had to redownload all the apps which took a bit of time but that is normal with any device. I also got the Bluetooth speaker which is a bonus & it sounds AMAZING!

 

The Design

Honestly the device is overall a beautiful & gorgeous device i have seen. The only issue i have is that the camera ring should have been inside not coming out like that but its nothing major to make me change my mind about the design. It looks like Apple to the design from the HTC One M7 / M8 & changed it up & made it into this. My only complaint is that the back is not good when you have water on ur hands or any oil or anything like that is its very slippery. It can fall & damage it that happens. Wish Apple would have put atleast grips on the anntena lines so that way it could have helped. Again this isn't a huge issue but many may find it as one. We have the bending issue that is going on. If you have the device in your front pocket or back pocket & bend or sit on it, it may bend & not go back. This is a issue that most are having i noticed & it bends right underneath the volume bottons. Hopefully Apple is aware of this & will have a exchange program for this & anyone who has this issue, can get a new one without questions asked. So be careful with that please. Mine has not had this done yet & i am hoping it does not but i do have Apple care.

 

The Screen

Honestly the screen is really vivid & beatiful. Its sharp & shows all the colors / black in the right spot. It has been voted as the best mobile screen thus far as well. The screen on my S5 is amazing but i must say the iPhone 6 + has a beautiful 1080p screen!.It honestly brings out the best viewing experiance out there!. You will love looking at pictures or videos on this device!

 

 

The Battery

The battery on the 6+ is 2950mAh. It can last you for well over 12hrs on heavy usage. Today it lasted me around 15 hrs on Standby & 13.7 hours on usage. So its not that bad at all. It outbeats my S5 so i will give it that. lol. Just charge the device properly & you will not have a issue. Let it die when u first get it & then fully charge it after. Something that many do not know is that the iPhone 6 & 6+ have fast charging enabled. The problem is that the wall adapter is not made for that so the device will charge slower. I have mine charging on USB via my power bar which has 2 USB ports to charge devices like that so mine charges within an hour that way unlike the wall adapter which takes 2.5 hours or 2 hours & gets hot.

 

IOS 8

IOS 8 is a improvemnet over the last IOS updates. I do like many features on is. I like how Apple enabled landscape for the 6+. This makes it really great for the device as its large. IOS is faster then before. I have noticed it open up apps qiucker & without any issues whats so ever. The phone turns on within a few seconds. So no more minutes waiting lol.

 

Call quality & Signal

The iPhone 6+ has great if not amazing call qauility on it. I can hear the other person clear & they can hear my clear as well. The Microphone is also clear & so far beats out the rest of the devices i have used lol. The speaker is not as loud as i hoped it would be. The HTC One M7 / M8 & Blackberry Z30 have still the best speakers on any mobile device out there. Hoepfully Apple does make the speaker a bit more better & put in Stereo speaker instead of Mono that is it. The problem the iPhone 6, LG G3 & the S5. All running on Rogers & in the same line all together. The S5 & G3 got full bars of signal & the iPhone 6+ got only 3 bars of signal. This has been a issue with the devices & Apple is fixing it with their next update & patch. So be aware of this. WiFi is having problems as well it seems. on the G3 & S5 it loads the pages faster then the 6+ does. It takes a few more milloseconds more to do it. This isn't a big issue but many will find this really annyoing. Hopefully all this gets fixed up on the next patch & update.

 

The Camera

The Camera is one of the most amazing things in this device. It takes clear pictures & Videos. It still does not beat my Z2 & S5 ( 22MP & 16MP cameras) but it does take clear pictures & it does what a its supposed to do. Take pictures & send them. The 6+ offers a OIS on it which i do find great!. It does come with a 2 tone LED's as well. The LED is really bright. Used it during the night in my room for a a few seconds lol. It can blind someone haha.

 

Cases.

Where do i begin with this. Barely any store sells cases for the 6+. They have plenty for the iPhone 6 but not for the 6+. So if you need one, go online & order one & pay for express shipping if possible unless you want to wait & have the phone naked until then.

Memory

Apple has 16,64 & 128GB models. I got the 128GB model. The 128GB comes with 114GB as the OS does take up alot of space but u still have 114GB left which is plenty for many. I still have 87GB left on my phone with 1,267 songs, 24 Movies, 12 Videos, 2,024 pictures & 53 apps. If i do run out of space, i still have almost 1TB on my Dropbox which i use to store documents & other things.

 

 

Hopefully this review helps everyone else out that wants a 6+!!

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Cancelled my reservation as getting one at apple was a quick and painless process ...

 

So I have been around 1500~ spot for over a week an iPhone 6 64.

 

I woke up late last night and read on the form to reserver with Apple. I checked the site at 2am and there were 3 spots to pick one up today. I didn't believe it but I continued on.

 

Got an email confirming to pick up my iPHone between 5-6pm. I thought I would check it out but I didn't want to wait in any long line up.

 

I walked over the Eaton Centre around 5:15,  there were about 10 people in the reservation line. All of them for unlocked phones. Since I was going for a locked phone they moved me up to the front. Somethign about a different line.

 

I was in and out in less then 20minutes - the whole trip for me was about 40mins. Again, I reserved from Apple last night at 2am. They say to start checking reservations from 10pm and all through the night until you get a spot.

 

Reserve with Apple - cancel your reservations people.

Hello shoshumi

I wouldn't suggest cancelling their reservations UNLESS they have the phone in their hands. Yes i would suggest going via Apple at again the Apple stores get more device in then ANY carrier. Apple favors their own stores then the carriers it seems like it.

So, I ordered a SpiGen case from Amazon, which arrived before the phone did. I ordered a Gelaskin from Nuvango, also arrived before the phone did. I'm still waiting for a screen protector, which will most likely arrive before the phone will. 

 

Still waiting for the phone, #553 Corporate 64GB iPhone 6+ in Space Grey

 

Did you put a screen protector on your phone? Do you think your phone will bend or are you treating it very cautiously?

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Hello omro

I honestly never use a screen protector. I hate the air bubbles & just do not like it when it starts to peel off within a few days of using one lets say.

Also i am worried about it bending BUT not as much as i know Apple will replace it & i know it will get replaced as i do have Apple care on the device. I treat my phone with caution & make sure i have a case on it & make sure that its in my hands or pocket.

Wow I can't believe it but my wifes new 6 has a crack in the bottom right part of the glass. She had a 4 for 4 years and never had any issues not even a scratch. This isnt even a week old. She says it wasnt dropped or anything dropped on it. Hopefully I can get a free replacement. Wish me luck.

@MeowMix

 

Did you buy the applecare direct from apple or did rogers sell it to you? How much for?

 

Have you ever scratched a glass iPhone or any mobile phone screen?
