"I've eaten 6+ Pot Noodles" (Apple fan with too much time on his hands)

The Great Manhattan Congestion has finally ended, as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was launched this week. Pavements everywhere were freed from the clutches of tents and sleeping bags, but for all who waited, it was worth it. Except for this guy.

Anyways, this big launch was perfect for Apple, too, as Eurogamer reported that Apple have already sold 10 million iPhone 6s and 6 Pluses. But how? Why is this the only case in the phone world, whereas other giants like Samsung, Sony and HTC never sell this quick? Well, it's partly to do with Apple's huge presence in everyday life. Apple adverts are always memorable. Apple stores are always huge and let you go hands on with the product for as long as you want. The OS is sleek and stylish. They, while not being the best, are the definition of the smartphone, whether you like it or not.

This is why everyone's going on about how huge the 6 Plus is, even though phones like the HTC One Max and Sony Xperia Z Ultra are bigger and came about earlier. It's Apple that are quite literally moving markets. Despite tons of smartwatches being released, the Apple Watch still has the most hype. Mobile gaming wouldn't be big were it not for Apple. They're so devilishly good with their marketing and overall style that they've taken a huge hold on many markets. That's why people are prepared to pay huge prices for an Apple product.

What do you guys think? Did you buy an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, and did it live up to expectations? Tell us in the comments!
