    Wow! Picked up the 6S+ today (had a 6) and it is HUGE. The extra real estate is nice, but I don't know if I will like the size.

    I'm wondering how long it will take to get used to it. I like it, especially 3D Touch, just don't know about its behemoth physique!

    That's what I'm hoping. I set the screen to zoom in and typing is a lot more accurate.

    It is huge, you'll eventually get used to it. Plus, you get an amazing battery life on the Plus.

    Yeah...like my brother told me...it's stupid huge... His gf got the 6+ way back.. He ended up finally with 6s.. I held them both trying to figure out what I wanted..I couldn't decide...I went to Apple Store still not sure...walked out with 6s+.. I do love it for movies!.. And I use the zoom screen so it really looks about the same icon real estate wise as 6s. It is hard to 1 hand/thumb it like I could with my 5/3GS.. But it does have that reachability feature for that if u want to use it.. it definitely is nice!.. And stupid huge..

    I had a very hard time justifying a 6s Plus, considering that I already have an iPad for movies and TV shows plus I have small hands.

    Yeah, well I didn't have any trouble justifying it in my head cuz I don't have an iPad or a mini.. I wanted 1 device that I wouldn't have too much trouble seeing..

    Everyone has different needs, but the extra battery was enough of a reason for me.

    Yeah I know and understand that. However I've never said anything like this

    Extra battery life, 1080p screen resolution and Image Stabilization are all nice (among other things).

    When Apple announced the 6Plus I knew I was going big and not looking back. Now got the 6S Plus and love it. Bigger battery, landscape home screen, love it all. After you get used to it, I think it will be hard to diminish in size. Every time I pick up a 6/6S I think Im holding an iPod Touch..

    The plus model is huge. But is an awesome device. Probably you're going to get used to it in a week
    I remember that in the first days that I get my iPhone 6s Plus I was really afraid to let it drop or how to hold it because it's really huge. But today it's normal to me.

    I got used to it pretty quickly, had a 4s before this one so quite a difference. But with big hands it's really nice to type.

    The size has not been an issue with me since September. It fits nicely in my pockets, even with an Otterbox case. I'm not a one hander, so that wasn't an issue. I love the size.

    The lack of the headphone jack is the biggest reason. I've got some great wired listeners I don't want to use through an adapter. Plus I don't want to gamble on the set up of being able to listen and charge at the same time.

    I'm not a Bluetooth fan so I've got a wired connection plugging into my car. I also don't see enough of a "WOW!" factor to upgrade.

    How did you come up on it? I ask because if you bought it new you might as well wait a couple of weeks and save $100

    My sister loves her 6s+; it's her first iPhone and she couldn't be happier. I am a one-handed user at times and could not manage it, but it's a great phone.

    Prior to the 6S Plus being released, I wanted a larger phone. At the time I was using a gold 5S. Once the Plus was avail I went to an Apple store on a few occasions and came to the conclusion the plus wasn't for me at that time. About 5 months later the hubby & I were both at Verizon getting the 6S Plus. I guess I just needed a few months to mull things over. Once I had that gem in my hot little hands it was love at first touch. I never looked back and adjusted to the size within the first week of having it. I would never go back to a smaller device, and I'm a petite person (standing at a tall 4'-11" lol) I love having a big phone

    I thought my 6 Plus was huge at first. Now it seems totally normal and my husbands 5C screen seems super tiny to me now. I can never go back to a small screen again. Nope.

    Ive been using the Plus versions of the iPhone since the 6 and the size has never been an issue. Ive never even bothered with that Reachability crap feature.

    But if you have smallish hands and are set on one-handed use then you might benefit from it.

    iMore published an article on how to use it: How to use the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus one-handed with Reachability | iMore

    Yes it is, but once I got use to it...I couldn't imagine going back to a smaller screen. I went from a 5s to a 6 Plus and now the 6s Plus. My aging eyes are very pleased
