It's not surprising for those of us who write about nothing but Apple products to get excited over a new iPhone, but what about an online journalist who is equally at home in iOS and Android worlds, often buying both an iPhone and an Android phone each year? That was the case with Kevin C. Tofel from Gigaom, who says in a new review that "I like the iPhone 6 so much that I may not buy a new Android."
So what does Tofel love about the new iPhone? A lot. The first thing he raves about is the redesign, which of course made the iPhone 6 a lot more like an iPod touch with its thin design and rounded corners.
And like those of us who never buy Android phones, Tofel loves the larger screen, saying "my eyes have been crying for that extra screen space for a while now." He's used a Moto X with a 4.7-inch screen for over a year now, but says that "the iPhone 6 display is noticeably better in terms of brightness, contrast, and viewing angles."
Tofel goes on for a bit about other details, like the upgraded camera and what's under the hood of the new phone, but the big deal in my opinion is his comment that "Some of the aspects of Android that I preferred over iOS are no longer an issue, as Apple changed a few things." Tofel is happy about iOS 8's extensions, widgets, and third-pary keyboards.
If you're still on the fence about upgrading even after reading TUAW's coverage of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, head on over to read Tofel's review. He may just nudge you off the fence and into an Apple Store.
