    I really wanted a smaller device after using notes for years and now having used the smaller S5. However the 720p display, the lack of OIS and and reduced battery life has pushed me away from the iPhone 6 and towards the 6+ .

    Yes, I it did. Right now I'm using a G3, but will be making the switch to Apple.

    Honestly, the only reason I didn't go back to an iPhone is the size. I hate having small screens. I also have an iPad air that I use a lot. I'm one of those people who don't care about all of the extra features, but rather focus on what phone will do the things I want best. The apps I use are so much better on iPhones. One example is the MLB app. On my iPad it is so smooth and looks good. On android it tends to lag a little and looks years behind the Apple version. I believe android has many more capabilities than Apple. The thing is I personally don't care about them. I will be keeping my G3 on one of my other lines for now.

    Really? That much bigger? I've for a Lumia 1520 and that one is too big for single use.
    But I really want the extra battery life on the 6+.

    It's the same width as a note 3 but a good half inch taller than the note.

    It's actually taller than the M8.

    Still want it. I think black.

    Does the black show scratches?

    I think it's great that Apple actually made two great phones that each have distinguishing features to appeal to different segments. The 5S vs 5C (or was it 5 vs 5C... anyway...) was an odd pairing. These two phones actually make sense for different people from a feature perspective. I never thought I'd order a phone as large as the + but I'm gonna!

    My space grey 5S has been fine. As far as scratches go.

    The size didn't sway me, it was the OUS , better battery, and better screen. Now I'm deciding between black or white. I've always went with black, but kinda wanted to try white . But I do mostly video watching and games, so black will be more immersive.

    I'm still on the fence but leaning towards the plus now. I was all set to get the 4.7 variant, but the battery life and OIS are really making me think twice. I like one handed operation, and the 5/5s is almost perfect for that. The 4.7 isn't that much bigger, so I thought it was the natural progression of things. But the battery and OIS (I shake a lot when I try to take pictures) really have me rethinking it. The 1080p display doesn't hurt, either. My eyes aren't what they used to be, so the extra screen real estate may come in handy sooner rather than later.

    i was dead set against the 5.5 a few weeks back when it was a rumor and planned on getting the 4.7. after seeing the differences (camera and iPad-like apps in landscape) I reconsidered and will be going with the 5.5.

    This sways me back towards the 6... I make fun of my buddies with Notes... And the Plus is BIGGER yet... The specs aren't enough to overcome the "hugeness" of the Plus in my opinion... But we'll see at 12am pacific tomorrow

    I'm a big guy with big hands....I'm still on the fence. There's really no reason that I can think of NOT to go with the Plus. My only trepidation is...actually, you know what? I have no trepidations. 6 Plus it is.

    Here are the two phones to scale in my hand. I'm 6'8" with huge hands. Just as a reference.

    Ha, thanks. Strangely, the 4/4S were very manageable. I think the 6+ would be the first time I'd struggle one handed.

    Definitely. I was set on getting the iPhone 6, now I'm rethinking my decision. I'm looking at the 6 plus now.

    I was certainly swayed by the 6 Plus. Before the announcement I was sure I was going to go for the 4.7", but that has changed. The OIS is the main reason I changed my mind, as well as the fact you get more stuff showing on the screen and better battery life.

    Yup indeed. The one handed use is my concern too! Just took a selfie using my 5s and I just thought how possible will it be taking one using a 6 plus!
