    I'll be back with you tomorrow! Returning my 6 tomorrow. Nothing to do with the things you mentioned....just don't need the slightly bigger screen and won't utilize it for what it's meant for. Also, after handling the thing for the last week, I've decided that the 5S form factor>>>>>6/6+ by a mile. This is all my opinion of course. Not taking anything away from the folks that will use the 6 to it's full potential because it is still an awesome iPhone.

    I held the iPhone 6 a few times already. It's big... The 5s is perfect in the hand. Wish it had the 3GS like back to it. That would be been nice. I don't think it was very Apple like to release these bigger iPhones. The 5.5 makes me shake my head.

    To be honest, I think people are blowing it all out of proportion with this bending issue because bashing Apple is the cool thing to do.

    Yes there are a few cases of bent iPhones but in the millions and millions of iPhones sold, only a minuscule handful have been bent this way.

    However, I totally know what you mean about the size of the 5S though. It's a perfect size really but I need a larger screen but not carry around a small paperback book, hence going for the 4.7" iPhone 6 over the 6+.

    I like the 6's size since I had a Samsung s3. Initially I thought it was too big when I first got it. But now I'm used to it and having the extra screen size is great.

    The 6plus is definitely big but at that size who needs to get a tablet? I'm very interested in the 6S plus.

    Heck, I can't wait to get the iPhone 6 Plus, and although I enjoy using my iPhone 5, I'm going to enjoy using the 6 Plus even more....

    I'm extremely happy with the 6. I switched to the GS3 for like 3 months just to try it and the only thing I missed was the screen size. As far as the bending issues, my sons iPhone 5 has a slight bend in it now because he was horse playing with a friend while his phone was in his front pocket. He fell down and I assume the force caused it to bend. I wasn't mad at Apple, I was mad at him for not taking better care of his phone. The iPhone 6 is even thinner aluminum so I would assume, yes it's more likely to bend in certain circumstances.

    I gave my 5 to my wife and now when I pick it up it feels just OK....Now I'm REALLY liking my 6, I personally would not go back to a 5.

    As to the people that are complaining about the phone bending, don't keep it in your back pocket.

    Common sense goes a long way.

    Highrisedrifter said millions and millions of iPhones have been sold and only a few reported bend reports. Although millions have been sold millions are still waiting for delivery of their phones. Truth is we won't know until Apple produces enough phone where everyone that has purchased their phone has then in their physical possessions. I bet this problem is wide spread much more than what is being reported. Also bet that the reported problems will come from those who decide not to use a case. I love my iPhone but not to the point that I won't slap a case on it the moment, sometime in November from what I'm being told, my 6+ arrives in the mail.

    It's all personal preference. Just remember that you'll only be able to enjoy the size of the 5s/5c/5 for so long and then you'll have to adopt to the next size up. Ultimately these drop and bend tests are ridiculous.

    Don't drop your phone? Don't bend your phone? I know, I know accidents happen...but (knock on wood) I've had drops, throws, skips, etc with little or no damage.

    I think I would be a huge mistake for apple to phase out this size. Choices are great. 3 different size flagship iPhones seems like a perfect idea to me

    Returned my 6 today. Went back(if you wanna call it that) to a Space Grey 32 gig 5S. Ahhhhhhh.....feels so good. First time I hit that lock button at the top it was like a rush of relief.

    I'm thinking of doing this as well. Just wondering, did you return it for a 5S you already had or did buy a new 5S? I would need to exchange the 6 for a 5S and can't decide if I want to "go back" for $5 less a month. Thanks in advance.

    Good choice. Well I don't fault anyone for getting the 6, the 5S is, in my opinion. A perfect phone. Even though I'm an iOS user I wish other OEM's than Apple would make high end smart phones in the 4-4.5 inch phone. Well except Sony. The Z1 compact was ******* sweet.

    The 6's are really nice phones, the 6+ is too it's just a beast. But there is just something about the compact size of the 4" screen that I really like.

    I like I can reach the whole screen with one hand.

    -I exchanged it for a new one. My previous 5S was only the 16 gig variant....decided to add another 16 and went with the 32 gigger. Plus, went with Space Grey as I had Gold previously. Just felt like going back to a black face. Just wanted a change there, no big overall reason other than something different. Good luck! Feels really good to be "back" on the 5S.

    -YESSSS!!! A hundred times yes! Caseless!!! That was a big thing for me as well. I just didn't feel secure carrying the 6 caseless. The dang thing is just so slippery and I despise cases. Plus, depending on the size of your hands, you really have to adjust how you use the 6 vs the 5/5S. The 5S is pretty slick too, but it's so compact that I can death grip it and feel good.

    I went and looked at the 6/6+ (IMO it looks like an Android device) at Verizon and BestBuy, and I didn't get the WOW impression I did when I saw the 5s for the first time. IMHO, the 5s has a much better design. I'm not going to say I won't get the iPhone 6/6+, but for now I'm satisfied with my GOLD 5s running iOS8.0.2

    This what's annoying me about the 6. I keep hitting the top and its nothing there. More of a hassle hitting the top side what small hands.

    Hey Spencer, I'm starting to miss my 5s right now. I can't help but stare and look at the beauty. Seriously considering going back.
