    His response was quite in keeping with the nature of the thread. Whilst you didn't ask for specific help deciding, the mere fact that you posted the question in the first place shows that you are undecided on whether you want to do it and are trying to decide by asking for info from others.

    Semantics aside, personally no, I am very happy with my 4.7" 6. I went with the iPhone 6 because I had a Galaxy Note 3 which is approximately the same size as the iPhone 6+ and I thought was just ridiculously huge. I regretted buying that Note 3, not just for the stupidly large size but also because of the flaky OS (but that's a story for another day).



    The grass is always greener... Lots of people returning their 6 for 6+ and 6+ for 6. I even know of someone who returned their 6 for a 6+ then returned that 6+ and went back to the 6 again.

    Also I saw this and just laughed and laughed and laughed.

    I love my new iPhone 6, I really do. I waited all night for it. I originally wanted the 6 plus but my local Verizon store didn't get any so I got the 6. I played with a 6 plus at the Apple Store and I told myself that it was too big for me and I love my 6. The problem is, I can't stop thinking about the plus. I'm thinking I may return the 6 and order the 6 plus. Is anyone else in the same boat as me?
    My question was was to see if anyone was in the same boat as my. I didn't ask for an opinion on what I should do.

    If you look closely at the phone it looks like it may already have some scratches on it.

    I would stay with the 6. You said it yourself the Plus is too big. Is 0.8 of an inch really that worth it?

    I would wait to see which one can last a full day... 18+ hours for some people...can then buy that one. We should not be tied to a charger. Whichever one can do that I would by two. I think they are both works or art and its always a personal choice when it comes to size but battery life should not be compromised.

    And this is why Apple loves releasing two sizes... They sell both to some people who made the mistake of not getting the one they wanted

    My plus arrives on Thursday, will see which one I keep. Had the opportunity to play with a plus at the Apple Store, while big it was actually easier to type on for me.

    I had the 6+ for about 7 hours before my 6 came in the mail. I had pretty much ruled out the 6+ by the time the 6 arrived and was sold on my decision after holding the 4.7" device.

    I was conflicted because getting the newest iphone on release day each year always assured I had the BEST Apple had to offer from day one. This year is different. The 1080p, OIS, and near 3000 mAh battery "not" being on the device I chose makes me feel like I, *gulp*, settled.

    I have to be honest with myself in how I use my phone. I am an 80% of the time one-handed user. If I am sitting down in the recliner or at a table then I use two hands. But walking, in the car, lying in bed, on the couch, etc I am one-handed. While I found typing to be a breeze on the 6+, there were many things I couldn't reach even with my Lebron James hands. I was using reach-ability A LOT. While it is a nice feature, it also meant that every time I needed an app at the top, to switch text recipients, use a back button, type in the browser, etc....I was now doing extra steps. That bothered me. It bothered me more than lack of OIS, or 1080p. It turned my fast and fluid IOS experience to a cumbersome one. I hated Android for what I felt were added steps. Now my IOS world was based off of them.

    And there were other things that reach-ability didn't solve. It didn't pull down that sms quick reply option (though I could make all of my notifications appear as pop-ups as a solution), it didn't allow me to pull down notification center.

    I do wish I had that screen size at times. Not gonna lie. But I don't foresee me giving up ease of use, efficiency, portability, etc for its benefits.

    I'd type more.....but I am on my way to Verizon just to hold that 6+ one more time

    If I was going to exchange my iPhone 6 for something else it would be an iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 is already straddling the line of too large for me.

    But, I love my iPhone 6.
    Agree 100%... I have until Oct. 2 to decide

    I just came back from the Android side after having the LG G2 (which by the way is a great phone)... but I sorely missed iPhone after 9 months and decided on the 6 (64 gb) in Silver/White. When I put the 6 up against the LG G2 they were nearly identical in size. The G2 was about as big a phone as I would ever get... so the 6 Plus was immediately out of the picture. And, with a case on the 6 Plus... way out of the picture. I got the Tech 21 case for the 6 and it is absolutely the perfect size phone for me. Now all I have to do is get used to iOS again! I suspect that will take a few days of use.

    Friend of mine showed me the iPhone 6 and I thought it was just the right size.
    I haven't seen the iPhone 6 Plus yet but I have cycled through four OnePlus One devices which has the same screen size as the 6+ and every time I have had the device I felt that it was too big so I think I am probably going to get a iPhone 6.

    I have always wanted the 6 plus. I was tempted for a moment to get the 6 because my preorder for the plus was two months out and the AT&T store I went to on launch day had a space grey 128 GB model for purchase. I could have easily picked it up and cancelled my preorder, but I decided that it was better to wait. Besides, I had already purchased two cases from Amazon for the plus. So I will wait. And I know it is going to be well worth it.

    Nope. Not one bit. I know exactly what i want for my personal needs and I either get that or I wait. I'm pretty patient. I got a 6 today (wanted a smaller phone) and I only got it because, i read that my carrier is offering $200 for a 4s and it may end. they aren't going for that much on Ebay. So i pulled the trigger. But i'd planned on waiting a while. But my suggestion is get what keeps you from having buyers remorse. I was an ipod guy. I used it all day everyday. I wanted an ipod and a phone, thus wanted the iphone but lacked the funds. I ended up getting a Palm Pre hoping it would be equal as a ipod and as a phone (read apps and stuff since i don't call much). It failed in both and though i was happy for 2 months by the third month when the "coming explosion" in new apps in the apps store wasn't happening and i realized i wasn't getting the basic apps i needed I started having buyers remorse. I spent almost 3 years hating that phone and that experience. I had a 4s since a little after launch and never regretted it. The only wish i had was lte. Nothing more. I say just go what makes you happy whatever that is and you'll be fine. Side note: same with my car which is now 10 years old and i still like it.

    I got the 6, because I'll be keeping my Lumia 1520.3 for serious video watching.
    If I didn't have the lumia I'd still go for the 6 and not the plus. Truth be told after having a 1520 every other phone seems puny.

    I've honestly been thinking the same.
    I saw and handled the 6 Plus in Target over the weekend, and it made me really wonder if I should have gone in that direction.
    Honestly, the only thing that's really stopping me from exchanging my 6 for a Plus is the fact that my carrier is so backed up with Plus orders, some people who pre-ordered on the 12th still haven't gotten theirs.
    I'm almost certain that when the 6 Plus S (or whatever next years iPhone will be called) comes out i'm going for the 5.5 inch option.

    I knew people ( especially non tech geeks that always get new iPhones simply because "it's an iPhone so it's the best" even though they don't know why and have never had any other device) would want the 6 plus just because it's the "better one" not realizing that a 5.5 inch phone is a surfboard even without apples ginormous chin and forehead bezels.



    Like I know it's good that Apple is giving people a choice and that they are offering people bigger phones but I'd guess that 85% or even more of iPhone users don't really know ish about phones. I know that some people hated how Apple only gave one screen size and that and that 4 inches was small but I think the the size worked better for most average iPhone users and/or was what they wanted. However I feel like most people (the people that don't frequent sites like iMore lol) who just blindly buy iPhones because "it's Apple so it's the best" don't know what they want because they don't care enough to actually see what else is out there. So now they just see the 6 plus as the "more expensive/better iPhone" so they'll get that when there's only a very niche amount of consumers who actually prefer phablets.

    /end rant


    PS I have smaller than average hands but I can't be the only person thinks the iPhone 6 design with a 4 inch screen would be the best thing ever.









    Tl;dr - I knew people would buy the 6 plus without realizing that it's effing HUUUGE!

    I cannot imagine using a phone much larger than my iPhone 6. Anything much larger would be very hard to hold while making phone calls and completely impossible for me to use at all one handed.

    You guys talk about the size a lot, with good reason....I've actually been thinking about returning my 6 and going back to the 5S JUST because of the size and what I use my phone for. Calls, texts, some social media and the occasional picture. That's about it. No gaming, no video watching really. I'm torn.
