    I am currently in the market for a new phone.

    I've personally never been a fan of Phablet type phones (I've always felt like they are too big and cumbersome). I used my iphone for everything from streaming music (Pandora) to video. In a typical month I stream about 4 GB of data (both video and music). This is including only using wi-fi when I'm home.

    As I've stated... I've always been a fan of the smaller phones. I love the option to just put the phone in my pocket as I'm running and/or working out. But one major feature of the iphone plus has had me take notice... the battery life.

    Since I use my phone so much, batter life is a huge feature I look for. I know the iphone plus has a substantially better battery life, which entices me to purchase the larger phone (despite the fact that I've never liked big phones).

    My question: Based on the way I use my phone: should I bite the bullet and get the bigger phone? My biggest fear is I won't be able to get used to the bigger size (and the size con will outweigh the benefit of the better battery life).

    You referenced twice that you don't like large phones.

    I think you answered your own question. Twice lol

    Go to a store and test both devices to see which one you like better. Only you can make that choice.

    Yeah, if you don't like big phones, the plus isn't for you. It's definitely a big phone (so people tell me, I just think their phone is small...now)

    Yup best to go in a handle both phones. That's what confirmed it for me that the Plus was the one for me. The 6 is great also I got a chance to play around with one last night and I think it's a great upgrade for a 5s or less.
