The goal here is fun, efficient empowerment, helping you choose and have confidence which model is right for you.

Here are 4 Ways To Use iPhone 6 Plus with One Hand

Follow my blog to be notified when I publish my iOS8 review, Apple Watch review, etc.

Please let me know if this is helpful, or how it could be improved. Thanks.



  1. You forgot to include the 3GS in your decision tree. I’m stuck forever on question two!

  2. Mosey A. Long says:

    You also need to include the question “are you happy with your current IPhone’s battery life?
    Also is screen resolution, i.e. native high definition” important to you. Can you even tell the difference?
    Is the device going to be your primary camera? All reasons that led me to the IPhone 6 Plus.

  3. “iPhone Plus has xx% more battery life” looks like someone typed the article before the actual release 😉

  4. Good flowchart – but you should remove the editorial comments. Example: “6 Plus has image stabilization, email inbox in landscape mode, etc. but these features are not on the 6 to get you to buy up to the 6 Plus”. Really? Are you sure that’s the real reason such features aren’t on the 6?

    And: How are these items possibly a “Con of the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus relative to iPhone 5/5S/5C”?

    • SomeOne, fair points. The imge stabilization is not on the 6 likely due to space requirements, but seeing as how Apple is a master of both Good/Better/Best and Planned Obsolescence, I truly believe the marketers and business-minded were involved in that decision, and that the designers even think that way, as they should. He purpose of my chart was not to exhaustively review every last thing–there are plenty of reviews that do that. Plus, I wanted a small bit of playfulness to the piece, which is why I put in the bits about “filthy rich,” etc. Thanks for the feedback. Hope it was helpful, informative and/or entertaining. Best to you.

  5. This flowchart does not include the option of not having an older iphone, yet not buying the iphone6. It seems kind of manipulatory to say you don’t need an iphone6 unless you own an older model already, and if you don’t own an iphone yet, the result is “buy the iphone6.”
    “Do you own an iphone?-no-Are your eyes getting weak?-no-Don’t buy the Iphone6 yet. This path is completely missing, even though it’s the most obvious one.
    Also… What do ipads have to do with not having an iphone? if I don’t have an iphone, I probably don’t have an Ipad either.
    A more sensible way of doing this flowchart would be going over the features to see what people expect from their phone, but then again, people can do that without flowcharts on their own.
    Pointless flowchart is pointless.

    • The path you cite–including your remark about the iPad–leads you to three choices, all of which involve buying either an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, which is the title of the graphic and the blog post. Hopefully people not interested in either iPhone would not read it based on that title.
      Thanks for taking the time to give feedback. I haven’t heard much in the way of negative comments after over 7,000 views so hopefully it’s helping some people.
