    Give it a little time but if you're like me, you might end up just needing to return it.

    I had a 5s and I just couldn't ever like enough to put down my 5c. I gave it a week and realized I just couldn't make myself want it.

    Now I'm considering getting another 5s or 6. Remember, the phones will still be around. If you really don't like it now, just do what you feel is right. You'll have another chance to play with it again.

    If you do end up in love with it however, enjoy it!!!

    The "lag" issue could be from the app and not the phone. Give it time.

    I really like the 6 Plus and is discovering everything it has to offer and I'm especially impressed with the quickness, quality of the camera and the available real estate. With that being said this is my first iPhone and don't have the capability to compare it against other iPhone designs like the OP can. I've always wanted one though but was put off by the small screen on previous models.

    I just got the iPhone 6 plus yesterday morning. I have been using it for over a day and probably I need to give myself more time with it.. But this was my first impression:

    Same thing, bigger screen. It's the same as my iPhone 5, I don't see any speed improvements at all, in fact the 6 Plus kind of lags when I turn it off and back on, my iPhone 5 doesn't..

    I thought it was going to be a big change like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 were.. Bigger screen, better performance but that's not the case here. Disappointed to say the least. The screen is gorgeous yes. But that's it. I am going to continuously use it over the weekend and see if I fall in love with it..

    What do you guys think?
    I am coming from a 5 and I debated for a few weeks on which one to get I decided to try the 6 plus knowing I could exchange it for a 6 if I didn't like it. It took me about 2 weeks to find a 6 plus, after having it for a week now I am extremely happy with the decision I like it way more than what I thought I would. Here's why:
    - Battery is absolutely hands down amazing I stream music over wifi all work day and it's at about 80% battery when I leave work, my 5 I would have to keep it plugged in to the charger because I would have no battery left at the end of the day.
    - Screen is beautiful really no need to explain anything on this one.
    - I really like how in standard view you can use messages and mail just like I do on my ipad in landscape mode.
    - Fingerprint scanner is convenient
    - Camera hands down the best camera in a phone that I have owned it takes amazing pictures and videos for the matter.
    - last but not least CLASH OF CLANS on the 6 plus is amazing.

    Now all that being said it is a beast to carry around but the pros way out weight the con!!!!!!!!!

    I also tried really hard to use the 6+ but in the end I couldn't do it. I think it is the better of the two but I just couldn't make the shift. I traded for a 6 and I love it. I do miss the screen size but it wasn't worth the trade off. I love pulling my phone out anywhere, anytime, and that wasn't possible. Makes me sad that I wasn't able to make the switch.

    Don't be sad. We've all got tastes that reflect who we are. I have a Note 3 that I love but I used to keep a separate line just so I could use a smaller phone. Eventually I just made my 5c the primary device and dropped my other line. Now the Note 3 is used as my media device, tablet, and storage unit. Having two lines because I felt bad over not being able to use it as a phone eventually left me feeling silly.

    Just know that someday you may like it again. At that time, just embrace that you know what you like. That's always okay!

    My honest opinion is that it is too big for a phone. You couldn't give me one, well maybe you could I'd sell it and get another 6. I'm sure it performs just as good as your 5 if not better.

    There's nothing TO contribute. OP doesn't seem to be happy with the device and that's that. I find these kind of posts unnecessary. What I like is not always going to be what you like and vice versa. I don't get why people need to find validity over their decisions. If he does not like it, take it back and move on. Easy.
    You find them unnecessary, yet you feel it is necessary enough to post a comment on said posts.....

    I guess it depends on your perspective. Upgrading from the iPhone 4s to the 6 for myself and the 6 plus for the wife was an enjoyable experience for both of us. We like the new features especially Touch ID, improved speed, larger screen size, better display, increased battery life, increased memory (upgrade), etc...

    I love it.....there are the occasional lag issues with apps that are not optimised for the 6+ but that's understandable. I'm thoroughly loving the experience with this phone and I have no regrets our second thoughts of getting any other smart phone on the market

    There's slight lag scrolling. Apps refresh more often now as does safari. But I accept it as a trade off for the best iOS screen out there and iPad like battery life.

    I think if all you've recognized is that it's simply the same phone with a bigger screen...you never intended to give it a fair assessment and you probably made your mind up before you even got the phone. Better battery, better camera, bigger screen, BETTER screen, more orientation options, better WiFi connection, stronger cellular connection...and that's not even considering it's handling of the new OS or it's processing ability.

    ALL of those things are noticeable and obvious.

    That's all fine and dandy. But if its too big for your personal taste, then it is just too big. I tried the "you will get used to the size" but I never did.

    I did. I thought I was going to be put off by the big size - doesn't fit in all pockets as previous iPhones. I thought I would not be able to type properly as well, since the screen is too big. I also thought that I would look stupid when calling someone, covering 80% of my face with my phone... and, it was true. I did feel those annoyances a lot at the beginning, because I was fixating on those.
    However, I eventually got used to it. The size feels just right. It's going to be hard for me to go back to a smaller phone. Easier on the eyes too - no more squinting to read.
    You really just need "some getting used to". But, i know it it might not be as easy to adapt for everyone. For e.g. someone that has no other place but his trouser's pocket to keep the phone.

    I came from a long line of Android devices, a very very long line. I've had every new and high end Android device over the past couple of years.
    What I was looking for was first a PHONE … one that had great reception, awesome audio , and fewer dropped calls.
    I WAS an iphone hater and I'm pretty sure that had more to do with size. I'm now a possessed iPhone lover. I got it my 6+ on day one, did the pre-order thing, stood in line at the Apple store and the whole nine yards so to speak.
    I won't be needing any new phones for a while, this does me just fine.
    It's just great all around and even though I thought the learning would be quite steep for an old duffer like me (70) I had no noticeable issues, except I sometimes try to keep turning it off/on at the top instead of the side.

    As a former Android user myself, I totally agree with you. The iPhone 6 Plus is the best mobile device that I ever have.

    I'm kind of like you in the sense that it's still the same phone just with a larger screen. But I'm loving this new screen and ain't ever going back to that puny 4" display.

    Except the OP described the phone as nothing more than a bigger screen...which is just simply not true at all.
