There are many people in my social circles online that loathe anything made by Apple regardless of whether it is an iPhone, iPad or even a MacBook, however I do not fit into that category... its doubtful that I ever will. I'm all about technology as a whole so while I'm a huge fan of Google and Android development I have no allegiance to any particular brand or manufacturer.
I love living in a world where I have the freedom to chose what I want, having options is great for all of us as consumers. Not to mention... a little healthy competition isn't hurting anyone!
One of the main reasons I've always overlooked the iPhone as a device worth having is because of the size. I LOVE big phones and ever since early last year when I got my hands on a Note 2 everything in comparison seems so itty bitty. I know that everyone has their own personal preferences so there may be some people who wanted iPhones to remain their previous size but I couldn't be more excited about it. I've been a fan of iOS since last year with the release of iOS7 (which is what prompted me to finally get an iPad).
With the launch of the iPhone 6 (4.7 inch screen) and the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inch screen) Apple is opening up itself to make even more money because now they are reaching the people like me. There are many who argue that the specs are underwhelming compared to what Android devices have been rocking for years but if there's anything that I learned with owning a Moto X its that specs really aren't what define a phone. I know that statement sounds ludicrous but it's true, that little Moto X that so many people doubted upon initial release was the best phone that I'd had to date. I won't get heavily into the specs as I know some of my readers don't fully understand all of that and the ones that do probably already know them... but the point is that these devices appeal to me VERY much, more so the iPhone 6 Plus for obvious reasons ;)
Will I be getting one? Not immediately, I just got a new phone a month ago and while I am a certified phone junkie I can't bring myself to jump ship that quickly. I do however have another line available to use whenever I decide, so I may buy one before years end. I'm just glad that Apple finally listened to those of us asking for the phone to get a size upgrade, took long enough!
