Worth Reading: The iPhone 6 Plus Is Not An iPad Nano

The iPhone 6 Plus may be useful as One Mobile Device to Rule Them All, but Jason Snell warns against getting a 6 Plus and expecting it to be a miniaturized iPad. It’s not:

“When Apple announced the iPhone 6 Plus on Sept. 9, I entertained the idea that it might be a replacement for my iPad mini. At last, the promise of a single device small enough to fit in my pocket, but big enough to satisfy my productivity needs.

Then I used the iPhone 6 Plus. And while it will have its fans—in fact, I’ll wager that the iPhone 6 Plus will have rabid fans—it’s just not for me, because I wasn’t seeking a bigger iPhone. I was seeking an iPad nano, and that’s not something the iPhone 6 Plus is willing to be.”

(Obligatory note: I worked under Jason for a time while I was with IDG.)

Nick spends way too much time in front of a computer, so he figures he may as well write about it. He's previously written for IDG's PCWorld and TechHive.
