    My wifi is really slow with the iPhone 6 plus anyone else having the same problem
    WiFi slowness could be due to a variety of factors (WiFi access point type, settings, useage from other WiFi devices, protocols supported...). I put my 6+ in Airplane mode with WiFi on and ran Ookla Speedtest. 33.25 Mbps download and 7.84Mbps upload with 385ms ping latency (from farthest point in the house away from the router).

    Since the Speedtest talks to an external server infrastructure and network (your cell provider, internet, hosting server provider) that may have its own variability, the results received from one test may not be the same for the next, but in general if three tests were run with the same variables each time; then the results should be roughly the same.

    My router is the current Airport Extreme generation which supports 802.11ac. To me WiFi seems fine at home, but that's mostly where I use it.

    haha it's getting late here and I first read wife for wifi. Good one.
    Anyway, I'm rocking my iP6 and am very happy with it, but a lot of friends around me are equipped with the 6+ and it is definitely growing on me, might at some point trade my iphone and ipad mini for a 6 plus.

    I feel the same way, I think. Same size battery, the split-screen allowed in e-mail and iMessage, the better camera.

    I love the 6 Plus, though. I can't even remember the last time I picked up my iPad. It fits in my pockets, but sometimes I feel it when I bend over. I love it in the car. A friend of mine looked at it for the first time last night, and he said he didn't think he'd want a phone that big. Then I took it out of its case, and he was like, "Ohhhhhhhhh...."

    I can't even imagine switching to a smaller size again anymore.
    When I look at the handykey keyboard that is the size of the 5s keyboard I ask myself how did I type on this

    I think it might be defective because I'm having other problems with messaging and lagging that I don't normal have and also the wifi being really slow is annoying I'm probably going to get another one

    Sounds like it may be defective. I'm averaging about 20 down and 15 up.

    What is your actual Internet plan? An AC router is still going to work within your Internet plan. So if your plan is 20 mb down, you are not going to get higher.

    50mbps thinking about switching to the 100mbps but I think it's my phone I'm probably going to switch it just in case

    I have been doing a bunch of studying / research and reading different forums its seems that when you backup your iPhone 6 plus with a backup from a previous iPhone sometimes there is problems and apple recommended setting it up as a new iPhone so i did that and the phone seems way faster , I think it's kind of stupid that , that should even happen hope that they are bringing out a fix for it soon

    lol...that is a forum the same as iMore, it just happens to be on Apple's website. There is nothing official about anything said in that thread or about the information you provided about setting up as new being the "optimal" choice. I backed up from my 5S, and it worked just fine.

    I didn't say that it will happen no matter what but I know that it's been an issue and most people that do it as new are not having the same problem as backing it up I personally know people that are having the same issue .

    This phone has been joy, joy and joy. I'm in love with it. I don't have anything negative to say about my experience... Well my pathetic carrier who's reception is ridiculous for having such slow download speeds is horrid. Other than that I'm so darn happy. It's good to know you've spent the right money on a brilliant device. 100% customer satisfaction

    I had my plus for only a couple of weeks now and I love it.
    I got use to the size quickly, but I do have large hands.
    Got IP5 for work and seems so tiny now. I will never go back to small phone.
    The only issue that I have is my addiction to cases. I am like a woman with purses. Why limited my self to just one. Different moods means a different cases. I rotate case weekly to get it a fresh look. 😍
