The first iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews are in

The very first iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews have come out from the United States, and the verdict is overwhelmingly positive! The bigger form factor, higher resolution screen-size, and the iPhone 6 Plus' battery life have all been a hit with international journos. Unfortunately, the iPhone 6 still doesn't have an all-day battery, but it apparently makes up for this by being a damn good phone.

The very first iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews have come out from the United States, and the verdict is overwhelmingly positive! The bigger form factor, higher resolution screen-size, and the iPhone 6 Plus' battery life have all been a hit with international journos. Unfortunately, the iPhone 6 still doesn't have an all-day battery, but it apparently makes up for this by being a damn good phone.

We'll have our first impressions out on Friday, and a review early next week, but in the meantime, here are some of the best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews on the web.

The Verge: iPhone 6
David Pierce

"For a variety of reasons, from the camera to the app ecosystem to the hardware itself, the iPhone 6 is one of the best smartphones on the market. Maybe even the best. But it’s still an iPhone. The same thing Apple’s been making for seven years. A fantastically good iPhone, but an iPhone through and through."

The Verge: iPhone 6 Plus
Nilay Patel

"I’m going to buy an iPhone 6 Plus. I’m taken with it; it feels like an entirely new kind of device for Apple, and it has such a killer camera I can’t say no. It’s every bit as good a phone as the iPhone 6; I’m docking it a little because Apple has a few software glitches to clear up. But I’m confident that will happen."

"This year's iPhones aren't groundbreaking, nor are they perfect. But they demonstrate something far more important to Apple's success in the long run: freshness."

"There are other smartphones that do some of the things an iPhone 6 can do. Others, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 do more. It and the Amazon Fire Phone actually watch you and react to your gaze. Even so, none put it all together in quite the same way."

Mashable: iPhone 6 Plus
Lance Ulanoff

"If you want a phablet, the iPhone 6 Plus is a very good one. That big screen is especially well suited to movie watching and game playing, but also packs in a lot more info from web pages and emails than you’ll get from the iPhone 6, 5S and other, smaller smartphones."

Bloomberg: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Joshua Topolsky

"With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple has proven that not only can it make a bigger phone, but it can make a bigger phone better than anyone else in the marketplace."
