    Except the OP described the phone as nothing more than a bigger screen...which is just simply not true at all.
    I am not debating that. If it is too big, it is too big, no "feature" is going to change that.

    Then I guess I'm confused why you quoted my comment when making your own...my retort to the OP was in response to his/her inferring that the iPhone 6 Plus was nothing more than a larger screen. Whether or not they care for the bigger screen was kind of irrelevant to me, because like you said, not everyone is going to like said screen. Trying to say that the 6 Plus is ONLY a bigger screen and nothing more (in terms of change from the previous gen or even the regular 6) is just a false statement...regardless of opinion.

    I guess my point is that all those things you listed as "better" aren't that noticeable (especially the camera) to the average user (besides maybe battery life) to justify the size, if one isn't sure about a larger phone. So as someone who has used both quite a bit, I can at least see where OP is coming from with his broad "it is just a bigger iphone 6" statement.

    BUT if you are totally comfortable with the bigger size the 6+ is a no brainer and probably worth the few extra bucks.

    That's fine, that's your opinion if you feel they aren't that noticeable...to me they are clearly and obviously noticeable...that's my opinion. The thing is though that the iPhone 6 Plus does have a higher resolution screen, better camera, better battery, better processor and a few other features that are factually enhanced vs. the previous generation 5S and the regular iPhone 6, so again, like I said before, saying that the iPhone 6 Plus is simply a larger screen is a false statement. That is my point, that was my point before...

    As far as seeing his side of the argument...I don't think it requires ownership of both devices to do such. I think most people on this website that frequent the boards have researched both devices enough to clearly and concisely understand the full gambit of differences between the two phones.

    I was attempting to get clarity on your response to me earlier where you quoted my comment to the OP, but the truth is, what you said was not relevant at all to what i was saying. It would have made more sense as a comment standing on it's own.

    I'm new to Apple products what is the 6S plus?

    On alternating years, Apple introduces the "S" model. This year the "6" was released. If the naming convention trends hold true, then next year's phones will be the 6S and 6S Plus. Last year the 5S was released, and the year prior the iPhone 5.

    Apple probably released iPhone 6 plus in a hurry. iOS8 is all right but most of the apps are just up-scaling the routine resolution and making them look big on the 6plus screen. It's like installing iPhone app on iPad. Rather than that they should make a way to downscale the iPad app to iPhone 6 plus.
    Such a waste of gorgeous and useful big screen. It feels like a phone for granny's and grandpas with large characters filling up the empty spaces on big screen.
    I have used iPhone 3 to 4S. But for me the shape and size of iPhone 5 was a deal breaker - kind of felt abnormal. Moved to android. Used note 2 for few months then HTC one for good 2 years. Then moved to BB z30 and now passport. Really love the experience of passport with really beautiful use of large screen. U can read the whole document or web page in original form with touch keypad. And you can throw anything at it, real multitasking with 8 active windows with no lag. It's amazing at work. Was kind of hoping a good coming back to iPhone.
    Hope they fix things.

    Exactly. Anyone who has owned the 6 Plus longer than a week knows there are many more great qualities to it besides the drop dead gorgeous 1080p 5.5" screen.

    I only wish iPhone 6 Plus was bigger!
    A 6" screen would've been great for me. Nevertheless I love my iPhone 6 Plus!!! Best phone ever...👍

    They aren't going to fix you're preference of another device or features that you won't find on Apple products...there's nothing to fix on the iPhone 6 Plus because your preferences aren't "problems" that need fixing.

    Man, I'm really curious about the passport. I just lost my z10, i still love bb10 for productivity, iOS is more intuitive not being gestures based.

    I'm finding my 6 plus great not blowing me away, I miss how well z10 integrated with work items especially outlook. In any case this has me More interested in passport , what's your take on it in comparison , screen size , work, etc...

    Nothing about the passport makes me want to drop my iPhone and run over to blackberry at all... But that being said I'm not you either. Maybe you will like it.

    How is screen size compared 6 plus, this forwarding and replying all to meeting invites, bugs me, especially bb10 handles attachments way better in emails, and searching mail. It's the work stuff that I miss that productivity, but for actual day to day entertainment, my iPhone is beast. Clash of clans baby, all day, every day!!!

    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?
    Why does it really matter what we think, relative to whether or not you can "fall in love with it"? I am not trying to be patronizing or snarky, but I use what I use because I like it and it works for me. I’d suggest taking advantage of the 14 day return policy. Try it out, and if it doesn’t work for you, then return it and get something that works for you.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking , I'll pick up a blackberry passport when prices drop,I'm intrigued by the side by side app feature. True multitasking, Ive been playing with my iPhone 6 plus non-stop I'm on business trip in hotel, sitting in buenos aires, sunny day, haven't opened my laptop, iPad mini yet! I should go outside but enjoying the 6 plus, still one hand feels a bit big, but the screen real estate really allows you to work.
