    Why do you think you made wrong choice ?
    Maybe because I didn't give the + a fair enough chance really only used from last Thursday to Yesterday but the 6 I'm using now is such a perfect size I'm just torn cause the + is such an amazing phone it's just the size that is causing me to have reservations.

    I keep thinking I a 6 would be a better fit for me, but when I use my Plus I love it. People ask how I like it and my reply is "hate carrying it, but love using it". I just took my case off and find the plus seems much more manageable naked. Not sure I'll keep it that way. But for now I think I'm sticking with the Plus. It's awesome to type on and the battery life has been pretty good.
    Yea I'm about temped to order me a 6 plus. I played with one again yesterday and found that I really don't like carrying it but I like using it

    Having used the 6 for a bit there was no doubt I got the right phone for myself with the 6 Plus.

    I could live with the iPhone 6 just like I lived with the 5 and 5S. But knowing there is a bigger screen available would make me have reservations.

    I don't think Apple hit the sweet spot here ... At all ....

    They needed a 5 or 5.2 inch screen ...
    4.7 isn't a big move from the 5s and 5.5 is bulky and hard to grip...

    In the end I think you feel like you're losing something with the 6.

    The Plus is just a gorgeous screen and has a never ending battery ...

    I keep telling myself you can't keep this phone it s too big it's too bulky etc and yet I can't put it down ...

    I'm gonna need more than 2 weeks ...

    If the iPhone 6 had a 1080p screen, big battery, and optical image stabilization, do you think that there would be such a high demand for the plus?

    That's exactly what Finn and I have been grappling with since the announcement. We practically talk about it everyday haha.

    More ppl have bought the 6 over the 6 plus..... It's not high demand it's the fact that there was a screen quality issues during production and the 6 plus is much less widely available.

    I'm not disputing that more people have bought the plus, but it does seem like it is in high demand. But my question was, if everything was equal with the exception of size, do you think that people would be clamoring for the plus the way that they are?

    Well I had a 6+ on launch day but I sadly had the 16 GB and a day or two later was nearly maxed out on the storage. So that Sunday I switched to a regular iPhone 6 (4.7 inch) with 64 GB of storage since they didn't have any pluses in and it was the same price as the 16 GB plus I had (300 dollars). I loved the bigger screen of the Plus but I like to text one handed and I am on the go a lot so the size was going to get some getting use to. I am nearing the end of my two week return/ exchange period and my local apple store had some pluses in last Friday but were sold out again by the time, I found out about it. I can live with my iPhone 6 honestly, its a good phone but if I run into a plus between today and Sunday then I might just make the switch again.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know if Apple with let you exchange phones more than one time during the two week period? I already exchanged once for the regular iPhone 6, but if I wanted to switch once again to the plus would they let me?

    Give me a day or two and I can let you know lol. I started with the 6 and gave it ten days before ultimately caving so I could see how I feel about the 6+. My hope was to make it at least a week with it in order to try and get acclimated to the size but I don't think I can last 3 days. Got my small phone envy going on right now and have a feeling I'll have my 6 back by Saturday afternoon.

    I had 6 plus envy the other day when I saw one was available at my local Apple. I bought it, and tried to love it. It was just too big and I kept going back to my 6. About 4 hours after I bought it, I was back to my 6 and returned the plus. I know exactly how you're feeling.

    That's where I am and I'll be honest, I envy those who have found it right for them. What a screen. It makes everything look stunning. I feel guilty almost cause I can actually one hand pretty much everything. I just prefer my smaller phone. Not smaller screen per se, but overall size. But the 6+ is amazing.

    Every person is different, so I am glad there are choices for them to find what they want.

    Agree 100%. And you'll never hear me utter a bad word about the 6+. Because it is amazing.

    I agree with everything here. I wish the plus was for me. From the time I heard a leak about the plus I wanted it. I waited in line all night for the plus. It just wasn't for me.

    The plus is freaking amazing! The reachability once you get used to it makes it easier to use than an iPhone 5S. That combined with Swype keyboard makes this my dream device. The iPhone 6 looks like a baby next to my beauty.

    I pulled the trigger and swapped out my 6+ for a 6. I had to do it before the 14 days were up. The phone was awesome, just didn't fit right in my pockets. I think the 6 is a good size.

    A large phone definitely is not for everyone. I had the note 3 for a while. At first I was shocked and thought I couldn't deal with it. But after a couple of weeks I was glad I kept it. I definitely understand everyone here that switched to the 6 and enjoys it. Both are great phones. I am currently waiting for my 6 plus to arrive abd type this on my G3 as I look forward to return to ios. I appreciate everyone revirew and it definitely helps others see both sides of the coin.

    Honestly if the 6 had the bigger battery and OIS that my Plus has, I would swap for the 6. But I can easily live with the size of the Plus for the extra features it has over the 6, regardless of my preference for the size of the 6.

    I think the 6 form factor is too narrow. I had to turn it sideways to read most web pages. It would have been nice if the top and bottom bezels on the 6+ could have been designed smaller reducing the length.

    I'll admit that OIS and the better battery life were the main reasons I went with the Plus, but after having the Plus for 2 weeks now, I'm not sure I would exchange it if the 6 came with those features. I'm loving the screen. It's easier for me to read most things (darn you old age), and I'm not really having an issue with the size of the device. While one handed usage is not really an option with the plus (although I have done it in a limited fashion), I think using the plus with 2 hands and the larger screen size is really working well for me. I really like this phone.

    I exchanged my space gray 64GB iPhone 6+ for the Gold iPhone 6 64GB at the Apple store. I couldn't been happier. I will not miss the 6+ for anything. As for OIS, not a big deal for me, and for longer battery usage I usually go with Mophie's battery cases. Either way I'm satisfied.
