Teclast P98 Air: cngadget Review

A sneak preview of what you’ll see from the iPhone 6 Plus owners on the Internet soon …

1) “Since I got the iPhone 6 Plus, I’ve hardly used my iPad Mini.”

2) “The big screen makes a big difference (pun intended).”

3) “Go big or go home, other phone makers!”

4) “This really needs a stylus. Apple could do it ‘right’.”

5) “Ever since Apple killed the Newton, I’ve wanted this.”

6) “I can actually write notes with my fingertip now!”

7) “Wow!”

8) “iPad Mini sales will probably fall now. Who needs it?”

9) “Apple didn’t follow that other company’s lead.”

10) “All other iPhones were just leading to this one, the 6 Plus.”

11) “Anyone who says this is ‘too big’ is an idiot!”
