    Actually, you're not afforded a "right" to that at all (none of us are)...especially given your history. We could probably make an entire sub-forum of threads where you said you're ready to pull the trigger on whichever iPhone. The interesting thing is that I don't think people pay attention to your threads very closely, given the fact that you've apparently ordered an iPhone 6, then miraculously asked a month later if you should order an iPhone 6, and then asked a hundred times if people thought you should by a Plus vs. a regular 6.

    It's really not trolling at this point my friend...it's brutally honest observation and relevant response. In case anyone was curious...here's a quick rundown of RavenSword's last 5 months...

    You also don't need to post in my apparent many threads. You could ignore me. Serious, if you aren't going to post anything relevant, just stop it. That's all in gonna say

    Ignoring is a two way street... You can ignore Sean...in fact, you can set the forum to ignore him so you don't even have to think about it. You do appear to have a history of crowd sourcing affirmation...and appearing to disregard advice given...

    But what I'm posting is perfectly relevant. That's the whole issue here!

    Just make a decision on a phone already...the truth is, you couldn't possibly GET anymore crowd affirmed answers because you've exhausted every question that could be brought up when trying to figure out which phone is best for YOU. And at the end of the day, as we've said a million times, why are you investing so much in what total online strangers prefer their phones to be like...there's a pretty darn good chance that NONE of us reflect your own needs, wants and demands when it comes to a smart phone.

    You've crossed a threshold of normal consumer research, and to be honest, it seems more like attention seeking than anything else really...especially given the "questions" you posed in this one, one revolving around a subject that was beaten to death and ultimately found untrue not even 2 days after the phone was in the hands of the consumer.

    Why would it bend in my pocket? Why is it a hassle? And what kind of toll does the scaling take?
    Because it is a long, thin device, and apple decided to go against reinforcing the frame to make it lighter (I am sure the 6s+ will fix this issue) that being said, It still takes a good amount of pressure. It is a larger device, so that might make it a hassle for some. Performance toll is what it would take, hopefully next year with the A9 chip and hopefully 2gb of ram these issues will disappear. That said, it is still a solid device.

    I've had nothing but a great experience with my 6 Plus. It's just that the things you have asked have been discussed at nauseam so I was being sarcastic with my responses.

    Anyway, I'd like to apologize to the users here, particularly ShaunHRCC.

    I realize that no one is is probaly trying to be mean or rude. And I realize that this is my fault. Over the past few months I've just been going back and forth on what phone I want. Wether it's a android phone or a iPhone. I've had, and returned: the G3, M8, and Moto X. I've also ordered and canceled the 6 and 6 plus.

    I suppose that's a testament to how close these two platforms are in quality now that's it's hard to make a decision between them. I can think of a list of things I like and don't like about both. And I really just need to take a breath and just think about which offers the least amount of compromises out of both to me. And maybe not worry so much on how well it may work with future purchases or devices.

    That sounds like a good plan. Pick one and make a commitment to yourself to hold onto it for at least a year. Learn the good points and bad points but most of all just relax. It's not the end of the world if you get the "wrong" device. You can always switch. But they will all have compromises-everything in life does.

    My only thing about going back to android is that I did kinda want a MacBook one day and a iPhone would integrate nicely with that. But maybe it wouldn't be a big issue with a android phone.

    That's true. I guess I thought most android users would just use windows due to the fact it operates a lot like android does.

    It's a really convenient feature...my only hang up about it is that sometimes if I answer the call with my iPhone, the "answer/decline" little notification on my MBP hangs for a couple of seconds sometimes. I'm sure there's an update coming or something, but it's really not a huge deal.

    It is convenient but I wish there was some sort of feature that my Mac and iPad "knew" my iPhone was within arm's reach and therefore didn't ring on the Mac or iPad. Sometimes I have all three of them ringing. Maybe that's a feature that the Watch could bringit could tell which device you were in closest proximity to and ring that one and have a setting for which to ring if they were all close by.

    It was a little bit of a rough day. But after reading this thread, I'm GOOD!

    On a serious tip, buy the device, you have 14 days return policy with most carriers. I'm known well to my local Best Buy & AT&T shop. I return stuff all the time ; if it isn't for me...

    Honestly, I can feel your pain. I've switched back and forth so many times, it's kind of pathetic. And I think it's making my wife insane. There are things that I absolutely LOVE about Android and iOS. And things that I really don't care for about both. So I can definitely see where you're coming from. Technology has become so ingrained in our lives that some of us REALLY want the absolute best device there is. And the best for one person isn't the best for another. I'm getting rid of a Nexus 6, even though I swore this was the phone to end my quest, but it isn't. I really think it's just a fat huge phone for the sake of being fat and huge. I liked the Nexus 5 considerably more. I'm now on the fence between a Note 4 and 6 Plus. I'm also fully entrenched in Google's ecosystem (I have been more of an Android user than an iOS user in the recent years), which does make the move a little more difficult, but not impossible. But also part of my hesitation.

    I do understand some people's frustrations with your thread, but I also understand your frustration with your decision. If only I was independently wealthy and I could have multiple phones, multiple tablets, and multiple computers. Then life would be good...
