    and then I actually cut the thing out. For some reason, just looking at it made it look like a book but actually holding it is completely different. I urge you all to do the same if you discounted the phone or on the fence. For my hands, it is very comfortable to hold. Happy waiting

    Or you can go to a local store and hold a Note 3. Then imagine it was made of aluminum. TA DA!

    I too cut it out and I think it's totally manageable as well. But there's something about the smaller 6 that just feels near perfect. If I have my choice, I'll likely get the Plus, but I'm kind of inclined to take both of them for a spin.

    I printed out the template and created cardboard models. When just looking at the size comparison on the web between the phones (and usually the iPad mini), the plus does look insanely large. However, holding the models in my hand and fitting them in my front pockets, I really don't think it will be an issue for me. I guess time will tell, but I'm really looking forward to getting my Plus and putting it through its paces.

    Actually my mother had a Note and I held it. This goes back to a person's hands which mine seem to be at that cutoff. My fingers splay outward while holding the note while I can actually close in on, at least the cutout, of the 6+. Since the 6+ is thinner, this will help a bit even if I don't know how much. I, at the very least, want to be able to one hand scroll and have it feel secure if I need to double tap the home button to bring the icons down.I know though that I'm giving up the one handed function of cell phones but thinking back, I always seem to use two hands while anything intensive and just using one hand to look at the lock screen for messages.

    Miketko: Unfortunately zero bars :P

    No, but my wife drew the buttons, cameras, and ear piece and added an Apple sticker on the back. I'm sure it will be hard to distinguish it from the real device.
