The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus take everyone’s favorite smartphone to the next level. They are bigger, faster and thinner than their predecessors, with better battery life to boot.

In the videos below, you’ll get Cult of Mac leader Leander Kahney’s first hands-on impressions, straight and unfiltered from the demo room after Apple’s big press event in Cupertino, California.

First up is the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. Along with the larger display, it also features a new A8 chip along with a ton of other updates. See the video above to check it out.

Next up is the “bigger than bigger” iPhone 6 Plus, which comes with an eagerly anticipated 5.5-inch display. It’s nearly as huge as the Galaxy Note 4, but Apple’s cleverly figured out a way for you to use it with only one hand. Watch the video below to see it in action.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available to pre-order starting Friday, Sept. 12, and will be released Sept. 19.
