    Did they say that the new iOS8 apps would just scale to take advantage of the bigger size on the 4.7" model while it gets to show more content on the 5.5" 6 plus or was it that way on both? The landscape mode is also only for the 6 plus right?

    I thought both the 6 and 6+ had OIS but the 6+ had a stepped up version. Besides that the screen res and slightly bigger battery I think is the difference. My question is about the Ram, no where I've seen the Ram in these phones.

    Screen resolution and OIS. But maybe I'm wrong on OIS. I missed a good deal of that part of the presentation.

    Edit. Sorry u mentioned that.
    I really don't get why they didn't include OIS with the 6. All I care about is the camera, so I'm kind of forced to go with the 6+. I thought I was ready & set for the 6+ but I'm not. Its huge! After the Note 2 I said I wouldn't get another phablet. I'm so torn.

    I definitely didn't hear them mention RAM.

    There's also that landscape view on 6 plus with different kb.

    When you factor in screen quality, battery life, and OIS along with landscape columns the plus sounds compelling. But pretty sure id go without a case do I don't add to the plus.

    The 64gb is plenty. 128 seems overkill.

    Of course well have to wait to see more differences

    Is there a phone that is VERY similar to 6+ in size to see in stores right now? Because I want to see if it is too big for me or perfect.

    Both. Sadly.

    My main phone might be the 6 plus though.

    Size is the only thing I'm going back and forth on... all I need is 64gb.

    Man I've been talking with Finn about this and I was dead set on the 4.7" but the more I think about it I might go with the 6+ cause then I might not have to get an iPad.

    You guys are so damn fickle ... 24 hours ago the 5s was the perfect phone, the 4.7" IP6 was gonna be too big, and that no way did a 5.5 iPhablet make sense. Welcome you wishy-washy-flip-floppers ...

    I don't mind wearing the fickle badge...honestly, I didn't think I would want a big device like the 6+, but I'm going to try it. I was absolutely, 100% satisfied with the 4" iPhone 5S, just like I was with the smaller 4S...I've grown to adapt to them. Maybe this will be the same with the 5.5", maybe not. Nothing wishy washy about it, my only options are 4.7" and 5.5", and since it's only slightly larger than the 4.7", I'm willing to try it out.

    I have been an opponent of larger screens in the past, but over the last couple of years, I knew this increase in size was coming, so I've just kind of accepted that my taste and preference would also have to adapt. I don't think this makes me a flip flopper, it just means I'm going with the flow.

    24 hours ago the 5S was the newest iPhone...today it's not. What we have is what we can be excited about. This is not a negative thing.

    After drooling over people using the Galaxy note the last couple years I'm going with the 6+. I'm probably gonna trade in my iPhone 5 & iPad mini. With that size screen I doubt I'll be using the iPad mini any more.

    Can't wait!

    LG G3 and the Note 3 is 5.7 but it'll give you an idea.

    G3 is close to 5.5 inches and same size? If so, I'm getting the 6+

    The M8, G3, note 3 are all basically the same size. Just different size screens

    I think I may wait until next year when the "upgraded" or "s" models come out. Unless I missed it, there doesn't seem to be sapphire front glass or a significant upgrade besides physical design. I currently have an iphone5, but my just wait until there is an "iphone 6s" or "iphone 6plus s"

    I may need to hold them but I really don't like the design. Maybe it's because of the size that makes the design eh. Don't get me wrong. I want a bigger phone. I use a note 3 as my primary and 5s as backup but idk. I will most likely get both leaning towards a 64gb and 128 gb. But not sure which with which. No idea which color but again most likely not white.

    I've always been open to different sized phones, but prior to the announcement I was leaning toward the 6, but the difference in features has forced me to choose the 6 Plus - and I can't wait! 128GB Space Gray model for me!

    I originally though the dual-domain pixels is what offered that, and that is the 6 and 6 plus. But maybe not. I need an answer by Friday at 3 am eastern!!! 😉

    Screw it. I think I am going Verizon Edge. May just pay the damn $5/month more for the plus.

    The overall size of both the M8 and G3 are smaller than the iPhone 6+ due to the bezel differences. Your closest comparison will be the Note 3.

    I'm thinking 64G 6 Plus. I've had my 5s for about nine months and I'm used up half of the 64G.

    But when will the GSM unlocked be available? I've read that VZW phones can be iffy with AT&T SIM. I'd rather get it from Apple directly, unlocked.

    Yea, 5.5" has landscape mode with more details on it
    Hard decision

    I had a Note 3 and it was far too big and unwieldy. It wouldn't fit in any of my pockets except a coat pocket.

    I'm getting the 4.7" as there's really not much in it at all. A higher pixel count and optical image stabilisation. I can live without those. If any of the major specs had been different, I would be conflicted.

    I couldn’t watch the presentation due to all the technical issues - the feed kept stalling, stuttering, restarting at the beginning, plus the Chinese language translation talking over Cook, I just turned it off. Waiting for Apple to post the video so I can find out what they actually announced today. SMH

    I have 4.3" Lumia 720 and this size is really great, before of AppleEvent I had decided to purchase 4.7" one but some features like Landscape Mode and OIS make me thinking again, any way I never use landscape mode for typing and dont think OIS would be a real deal but huge handset in tiny pocket is a real deal. So I will purchase 4.7" one.
