    What about for apps? If developers don't end up developing separate 6 and 6 Plus versions, which one will they focus on? Would suck to pick the one that ends up always getting "scaled" apps.... 0_o

    I'm hoping you are basing it on more than just the battery, which I imagine you are. Particularly since there's no real world testing to back those numbers presented. The most noticeable battery advantages of the 6+ vs 6 are standby time and talk time. I talk 20 minutes a month and my phone is seldom on standby lol. I'm no longer just handing the battery crown to the 6+.

    Been working with two cardboard models part of the day. The 6+ may fit in front or rear jeans pocket but forget about sitting unless you pull it out. The iphone 5 and hopefully 6 , will easily fit in slacks or jeans and the 6 faired well with a test in sitting down.

    That’s what SHE said.

    Seriously, though, I am mildly concerned about the battery of the 6. The 6 Plus has a significantly better battery spec, and Apple tossed in OIS, to boot.

    I think if the bezel on the 6+ was reduced I'd choose it with zero hesitation. As it is, the extreme bezel and overall height has me thinking it's, dare I say it, unattractive 😳

    All caveats apply. Just my opinion. Haven't seen it in person. Not hating, etc. Just coming to grips that that it's actually the 'front' of the 6+, not the back, that has me a bit turned off.

    Edit: I need to straighten up. Until it's in my cold sweaty hands, passing judgement is premature and futile.

    This.

    I am of the same opinion regarding the bezels on the 6+. Extra screen real estate is always good, but the bezels make the whole phone tad too big.

    I'm coming over from a Nexus 5. N5 and the IP6 both are almost identical in dimensions so switching to a 6 would be seamless for me.
    BUT, I used Note 3 for a brief period when it came out and really liked the bigger screen.
    I have about 31 hours to make up mind on which one to pre-order.

    Anyone else feel the 12th is taking forever to get here to pre-order. Does the phone ship on the 19th or will we get the phone on the 19th. Need to know when to take off so I can play with the phone alllll day

    I want to touch and feel the devices first before I buy, I am currently rocking the LG G3 so the 6+ will need to beat the LG before I consider switching. I like the bigger device personally I would never go back to a smaller device. I just purchased a Macbook Pro Retina so a new Iphone would compliment nicely.

    The battery life of the 6+ is the only reason I'm considering it right now

    Why. Why couldn't they make 5". 4.7 too small. Not enough of screen gain from IPhone 5. 5.5 too big. Won't fit in my pants. Will leave it some place or loose it.

    I don't know if I hate big phones because I've never used one. I'm also certain that neither of the phones will fit in my jeans front pocket.
    However my husband sort of made my decision for me. I get the new phone every year and he gets my one year old phone. Although he did say it was my choice, he expressed a preference for the bigger one.
    I'm using a GS5 everyday as my work phone & it's pretty darn awkward. The screen real estate is nice but the hugeness of the phone isn't. I'm pretty sure the new iPhone will be the same for me, especially since it's bigger than the note

    The 6 looks small in those big mitts of yours however!

    I really want to pre-order this Friday but struggling between the 6 and 6+. Thinking about ordering both and then return one.

    Like everyone else I am undecided. I know I don't have a choice though. I honestly don't believe the 6+ would fit in my jeans. Have to go with the 6. Little bummed because I feel like I'm not getting the best iPhone available but I'm getting the iPhone that works best for me.

    I'm not 6'8" like Finn, but I do have very large hands. Here's my pics. The 6 plus is really big. But, the 6 doesn't seem much larger than my 5.

    I may end up buying the 6 plus simply out of fear that I will regret it if I don't. But wow, it's big. Hope I adjust to it quickly.

    I am flopping around like a fish on the 6 vs 6+ decision. I thought I had my mind made up this morning now I'm back at it. I just did the print outs and I agree with you Brett, the 6 is marginally larger than my 5S. I can hold the 6+ comfortably and it doesn't seem too abnormally large. I have bigger hands too so the extra space might be nice. Ugh I never thought I'd even consider a 5.5" phone!

    I'm the same, I was all decided on the iPhone 6 for the past month, and I though 5.5" was way too big. Now I'm flopping back and forth across the 6 and 6 + line
