iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 6: The Best $100 You'll Ever Spend - Teaching with iPad

iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 6: The Best $100 You'll Ever Spend - Teaching with iPad | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it
This post is for those considering an iPhone upgrade. Those of you who currently have an iPhone 5 or older are probably due for an upgrade with your provider. If you have already purchased an iPhone 6, it is great phone and upgrade from Apple's previous models. Please let us know what you think after reading this!

My colleague and good friend Matt Przybylski (@iphysed) and I love discussing Apple products. He has had the iPhone 6 plus since day 1 (almost 3 months ago!). I have had it for just over three weeks. We wanted to take the opportunity to share why we think the 6 plus is the better phone. Upon some discussion between Matt and I, here are some reasons why, if you are debating which iPhone to get next, the iPhone 6 Plus should be the one you get.
