    It's usually hard for me to enjoy smaller phones. I think a 4" screen is the smallest I'd want and about 6" is the biggest.

    After, giving my Note 3 to my son after having it for about 3 weeks I know I was going to pass on the 6 plus. Maybe a 6 plus or another Note will be in my future once and if my eyesight decides to go bad. Everyone including myself that I see using these "phablets" are using them with two hands. To me that defeats the whole point of carrying a phone.

    Why do you think today's phones should only be used with one hand?

    I just put my most used apps at the bottom right (I'm right handed) of the screen so one handed use is very possible on a "phablet", I just adjusted, and my eyes are extremely grateful.....simple soloution.

    The size was a factor for me at first but the battery life was even more a factor. Coming from the 5s I refused to go from the 5s to the 6 and not have much difference. So I went with the 6 plus and have not looked back. I do enjoy having landscape mode in most areas as well as the better battery life. I also enjoy watching items and viewing things much better on the 6 plus. Having another phone with a 5.5 inch screen I can say the iPhone is larger because Apple made the bezel HUGE!!!!!!! I still love the iPhone 6 Plus but wish Apple would scale down on the area around the screen. That is what makes it feel unusable with one hand. My other 5.5 inch screen phone feels better in one hand but I still prefer my iPhone 6 Plus for many uses and BATTERY LIFE! No need in going from the 5s to the 6 in my opinion.

    P.S. Using the double tap to bring everything at the top of the screen to the bottom is a very handy feature and can help with one handed use!

    Oh and now having the Apple Watch and the iPhone 6 Plus is perfect. It means there are many occasions where I don't have to pull out the 6 plus for most texts and some quick calls. Even at the counter in Starbucks or any place that excepts Apple Pay. No fumbling and they actually are a perfect pair. The Apple Watch and iPhone 6 Plus.

    I agree with you man! There's no comparison of 6 plus and 6

    While I love my phablets I can also appreciate a smaller handset. My still-working 32GB iPhone 4 seems just a bit too small though. ...would love to have a new 32GB 5s but I couldn't justify it given the price of a new 32GB Nexus 5.

    Have you ever held a 6" screen phone in your hand? I've held the 6" LG G Flex, and it's ridiculously large. It felt like holding a tablet to my ear. I didn't find it practical at all. LOL
    Once you go 6 Plus once you'll always go back, does anyone else feel this way?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1437741864.060039.jpg

    I seriously considered a G Flex 2 and would still look at a Nexus 6. They're not all that much bigger than the 6 Plus, they just don't have >1/2" of bezel on the top and bottom. The bezel on the iPhone seems unnecessarily large to me. I know the fingerprint scanner requires some room and Apple wanted to keep the top and bottom bezel size symmetric but the bezels on my 6 Plus are huge. I'm not being overly critical, just truthful, my 6 Plus is still gorgeous.

    Use a Lumia 1520 for a couple of days and the 6+ will seem small to you.

    I have used the earlier iPhones and now using the 6 plus and believe it or not I find myself doing a lot of stuff on it without having to go to my iPad and in some cases the Mac also. That's how complete it is

    Totally disagree!! I owned an iPhone 6 first, bought an iPhone 6 plus to try it out and I love it! Never going back to the iPhone 6.

    My ultimate solution is just to have both. The 6 Plus in Space Grey like I have and a 6 in gold (to replace this little, tiny, minuscule, and small iPhone 4s).

    I'll have to agree. I mentioned this in another post. I have the iPhone 6 Plus at release, had it for about seven months before I decided to downgrade to the iPhone six regular. It only lasted about three weeks before I came back to the 6+. I don't think I'll ever be able to use the smaller version. The screen is awesome.

    I honestly never considered the 6, the 6 plus is the only one I wanted. After owning and loving both the iPhone 4 and 5, I was ready for the bigger screen. My iPhone 5 screen looks so tiny now, lol. I can't see myself going back to a smaller screen.

    My wife and I moved from Lumia 928s, which is almost exactly the same size as the standard 6, about two weeks ago. I really wasn't sure about the 6+, but figured I had a 14 day window to drop to the standard 6. I joked with my wife about calling her on "my surf board". After about 3 days, it was a no-brainer. My wife's 6 feels so small, my 6+ is easy to read and play games, and it fits just fine in my pocket, even with the case (Spigen).

    Still, I'm a pretty big guy, with pretty big hands. My wife is isn't tiny, but the 6+ isn't comfortable for her. She's pretty active during the day, whereas I'm a programmer. There are a lot of factors that can go into the phone selection. For me, though, the 6+ is great. Much bigger, though, and it probably would start to get unwieldy -- there's no chance that I'm going to get a belt clip.

    No. The 6 Plus has vastly superior battery life to the 6, and honestly while it may not be a big deal to some people... I don't want a 768p (or whatever it is) screen resolution on a flagship phone. The size is nice. I would actually prefer that size, if it had a 1080p screen and a bigger battery (2,400 mAh+) in it.

    However, I do find it hard to go down to a smaller phone once you get used to the bigger ones.

    But of course sometimes I do wish I had something a bit easier to use with one hand.

    The benefits far outweigh the drawbacks for me, though.

    I knew as soon as the plus was announced that I would be getting it. I never once considered getting the 6. It was go big or go home for me. If apple hadn't released the plus, I would be rocking a Note series phone right now. Absolutely no regrets on my decision.
