    Curious to know what your verdict is....
    I don't know. I have been using my iPhone a lot lately. What I like is that I can use my iPhone all day and then come home and put it on my charger and the iPad picks up where the iPhone left off. Of course watching movies is better on the bigger screen. But I have found that playing games is more comfortable on my iPhone 6 Plus. Either way, it feels like I'm not fully using either. I wanted a bigger phone initially so I wouldn't have to have two devices. But I'm starting to really see the benefits of both even though they relatively do the same thing. I think that I'm just going to keep both and every other year upgrade one. So because I upgraded my phone this year in going to upgrade the iPad next year. I just can't part with the iPad yet.

    Might be useful to give us a hint at what your job is, so we can picture what you're using the devices(s) for.

    I work in an office. I am the Director of Student Services for s school district. So most of my day is sitting in meetings or in classrooms doing teacher observations. It is easier to have an iPad over a laptop because it is lighter. Other than that, I don't really have a lot of computing needs. I use my iPad to create my newsletters and check my email and such. I keep my phone logs and and I have all of my documents on my iPad as well. I even send all of my phone calls and text messages to my iPad during my work day sometimes. So I do use it a lot. I just wanted to see if it were possible to just use my phone for all of those things instead. The inconsequential difference is that even though I can do all of the same things on my phone, it looks more professional when I do it on my iPad. When I do it on my phone it looks like I'm just texting all day.

    Ok, I have found something today that has made a difference. I was looking through some of my magazines today and then realized that not all of them are available on the iPhone. That may make using the iPhone exclusively a no go.
    How can you read a magazine on a 5.5" screen?

    They are optimized.

    But lots of iPad apps are not available for iPhone (at least the ones I want -like for using with stylus or some specific medical journals which are available for iPad )
    I do agree that a 6+ should suffice the need for large screen. I gave up my iPad mini after 6+ plus, but I am facing problems with app support.

    I returned my iPad Air 2 this week and am now using my 6 Plus all the time. Thanks to the awesome 5.5" screen, I don't miss the iPad so far. I was mostly using the iPad for browsing the web anyway.

    I've noticed that I haven't touched my Air in almost 2 weeks. May have to sell it if I continue to use my 6+ for everything.

    It's easy to want to just use your phablet for just everything. Once you have the bigger screen, it just seems redundant to have a tablet too.

    I'm running around all day in my particular field of work, so an iPad is a no go, I tried it earlier this year with the air and because I'm in server racks and small spaces having my notes and logs on my phone just makes life easier for me.

    Found this article. Pretty interesting about this guy using his smartphone for work all day. Even though it's for the Note 4, I think it still applies.

    I have both because they each fill
    A certain need for me and with the whole continuity thing in iOS 8.0 they work hand in hand together.

    I can leave my iPhone 6+ in another room while working on my iPad and receive iMessage/SMS/Calls etc just as I would on my 6+.

    I use my iPad for work and to watch movies because if you want to watch a movie it's best on a larger screen.

    But to each there own do what you think is right and what you can afford.

    I honestly have found myself moving into needing an iPhone and iPad. Up until about a month ago my iPad Mini would only stay at home and I'd use it rarely. Then I upgraded to the Mini 3 and got it with cellular data, suddenly I'm finding a thousand and one reasons to keep it with me. For me, there doesn't seem to be any redundancies as I like my smaller screen 5s for calls but love my iPad for any reading/video apps.

    I always upgrade my phones every few months but I usually stay with the same tablet for a year or so. So the iPad will keep all my information where I'd likely only put a few things on my phone.

    Everyone has their own needs.

    Honestly, if your getting a 6 plus, you really don't need an iPad imo...
