    I loved the bigger screen but I literally just returned mine and got the iPhone 6 64 GB Gold. I had the plus in a 16 GB but ultimately I chose more storage over a bigger screen. I kinda sad but so far I am liking the 6 even though is only a tiny bit bigger than the 5/ 5S.

    My apple store said it could be weeks before they got any Pluses back in stock so I didn't want to risk being stuck with a Plus with only 16 GB storage for the next two years. In two years when the iPhone 7 hits, I will get the bigger screen for sure!

    I originally preordered the iPhone 6+ than we got the demos in store today and I started playing with both phones. I started disliking the 6+ and started gravitating towards the 6. Ended up canceling my pre order and getting the 6 right then and there. There were surprisingly a lot of people who do not want the 6. By 4 o clock we still have more than enough to last another 2 days. I'm happy with my 6
    Agree everyone wants the 6+ after bashing samsung and other android "phablets" for how they look when being used and making calls.

    There seems to still be a lot of people out there that don't like the bigger phone. It's just a matter of preference.

    So I went ahead and canceled my iPhone 6 order and ordered the 6 plus. Honestly, I use my phone not really as a phone, but more as a computer. Meaning I'm doing anything but making calls on the thing. It's really my primary computing device right now. So honestly, the big screen and better battery of the plus really appeals to me. It'll make video watching and gaming more immersive and I'm excited to see what type of apps can come of that large screen. Will I have to adjust how I handle it? Sure. But I think it's worth it

    I would have waited for the next shipment for pluses but like I said, I only had two weeks and after that I would have been stuck with a 16 GB plus which would not have worked for two years. So I exchanged for a regular 6 with 64 gb storage for the same price I paid for the 16 GB plus ( 300 dollars).

    I will miss the 5.5 screen but honestly the two phones are pretty much the same minus screen size and the plus has Image stabilization for pictures and video. Sadly for me I had to go with more storage over a bigger screen.

    In the long run that's probably the better choice. Pretty frustrating when you run out of space when taking pictures of a special event for example.

    It will feel strange for me to return this phone for the 6. I know they have the same specs but I'm beginning to love this size. It's a mission to type when I'm lieying down in bed but I'll get used to it

    I am waiting for iPhone to be available in India. Its super confusing to decide which size is perfect for me. Finally after seeing lots of reviews and videos ..... I am still confused. So decided to wait for it to be available and then try out both and take a call immediately.

    If you haven't tried it yet...I highly recommend using Swiftkey or Swype while laying down. For me it is much quicker than using 1 finger pecking at the keys.

    You will get used to the size. I'm switching back to he iPhone and the 6 plus after selling my 5s for the LG G3. I can't go back to a smaller screen. After using larger phones you adapt to the size and grow to love them.

    At least that is my experience. I'm excited to get my 6 plus whenever that may be.

    I tried the 6 Plus for a couple of days but it was uncomfortable to hold for me even though I have fairly large hands. I decided to get the 6 which is a nice improvement over the IPhone 5 screen but not too large. Another interesting thing is that my car navigation system (2013 Camry) did not work with the 6 Plus even though Bluetooth paired but the 6 works flawlessly just like the 5 did. I am not sure what that is about

    I'm keeping my 6+. The thing is definitely gigantic and is taking some getting used to, as others have said, but I like it a lot so far.

    I got the 6+ delivered on Friday after pre-ordering and was afraid I'd regret buying the phone before seeing both versions in person. I messed around with an iPhone 6 on Saturday and it really is a very nice size. I honestly think I would have been happy with either phone, but now that I have the 6+ with the slightly better battery and the OIS on the camera, this is the one I'm sticking with.
    Honestly, I use my phone not really as a phone, but more as a computer. Meaning I'm doing anything but making calls on the thing. It's really my primary computing device right now.
    This was another big consideration that made me go with the 6+ over the 6.

    I also have an LG G3, IMO that is hands down without a doubt the perfect size for a phone with a 5.5in screen.

    I love my 6+ also, but I am considering downsizing to the 6, however the battery life on my 6+ is absolutely insane.

    This is how I feel. I picked up the plus 16gb and its a pain constantly running out of space. I can return it today for a 64gb regular. It's a tough decision but something I might go for.

    How does the 6+ handle in relation to the G3? Currently using the G3 and it really feels like my limit for size. Battery and performance better on the 6+?

    Still waiting on mine but I did play with a 6+ at the apple store yesterday and while it is huge, my only question is do I still want a full sized iPad now that I have a nice MBP and a 6+ on order. My guess is yes since a full size tablet does serve a different purpose.

    The size of the G3 is perfect for a 5.5in display IMO. With that said the screen, battery, and camera are IMO far better on the 6+. The rear buttons on the G3 are one of my favorite features and I miss those greatly!

    Digging the camera on the 6/6+ but the G3 camera can definitely hold its own. I loved the rear volume/home buttons as well. We all know Apple will never go that route with the buttons, but if Apple can put the bezels on a diet and have a 5.5" display the size of the G3 it would be nearly a perfect device.

    With regards to the OP, I'm going the opposite route. I got a 128gb 6 on launch day but I'm searching like mad for a 128gb 6+ to replace it with. The 6 screen looks really good, in fact, I prefer it to the G3 and my Xperia Z2, but after having those bigger screens I want the biggest display available. Also, the bigger battery of the + is pushing me in that direction.
