    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?

    Kind of thinking about it. I love the 6,but I would also like a bigger screen since I don't have the best eyesight anymore. Honestly a 5 inch screen would have been perfect for me. Problem with the 6+ for me is pocket-ability and one handed use.
    I'll probably stick with this one to avoid the hassle anyway. I could always upgrade next year.

    I went through a great deal of indecision about which one to get. I then spent a good long while talking to a friend of mine about how I use my device, the fact that I always use a case and very often an Otterbox, and how I carry it (suit or jeans pocket and in my purse only while outside my office building or while shopping) and I saw that the size of the 6+ would not be comfortable for me.

    Once I made my decision it was obvious that it was the right one for me.

    So I'm not regretting the one I picked.

    Not even a little bit.

    The 6 has been ideal for my needs and uses (and it fits just right in my pocket and my wife has a spot in her purse to put hers just right). Were we to go with the 6Plus, it just would have been too big. Maybe as a replacement for the iPad Mini....maybe...

    I have had a couple of moments since this morning in where I contemplated whether I should have bought the 6+ instead of the 6, but I am resolved to keeping with my original plan of keeping my 6 for now, and also purchasing a 6+ in November with my next upgrade, since I paid full price for my 6 so I did not have to use my upgrade.

    I want the best of both sizes. I just need to be patient., which I am not the best at when it comes to new gadgets

    I too initially wanted the 6 Plus, but after putting the store demo in my pocket, I knew it just wasn't right. Beyond that, which I probably could have gotten over, the 6 just felt perfect in every way. But, like the Plus, the 6 is not for everybody, so if you'd rather have a Plus, absolutely return it for the Plus. It's better to pay the restocking fee than spend the lifetime of your phone wishing you would have opted for something else. Good luck.

    I first wanted the 6+, got a 6+ and was happy about it... Then I went to the Apple Store and tested a 6 and compared to the 6+...

    Result: the 6+ is really really awesome and I would never go smaller. I can't use it with one hand anymore easily, but everything else is much better!

    In going to try it out more at the store. If I am absolutely head over heels for it, I'll return it. If not, I won't. I'm sure I'll be able to do some sort of trade for one in a few months.

    For me the 6+ is just way to massive, could not use it as a primary phone. Maybe to replace a small tablet that has a built in phone, so a 2nd line. But could not see myself having to deal with it daily.

    LOL my philosophy was to get the 6+ and then use it for 4-5 days and if I absolutely can't handle the size I will return it for the 6. Always easier to start with the more premium version of something and then downgrade.

    I briefly thought about the 6+, but knew I wanted the plain 6. I want portability and mobility. I like to carry a small purse and didn't want to have to search for a purse to fit my huge phone. I also like to keep my phone in the cupholder of my car. I figured if I really need screen space, there's my iPad or macBook. I am enjoying the 6--do not think I will ever want anything larger. When is a mobile phone too big to be practical? Maybe next will be an iPhone +++.

    Give me your 6. You can get a tax write off for charity.

    I considered the Plus for a brief moment just due to the specs. But then I saw the size difference when overlaid over the 5/5S.

    Ordered a 6 without hesitation. Still had a very small doubt in my mind thinking it would be too close in size to my 5.

    Then I received the 6 and all was forgotten. Couldn't be happier with the size. A nice noticeable increase from the 5, yet not overly gigantic that I can't put in my pocket or use one-handed from time to time.

    Go with what feels best for YOU.

    I was at best buy today and was looking at the iPhone 6. It just looks small now. I'm getting used to the 6 plus lol. I actually thought it was the 5s at first, I had to flip it over to see the back lol

    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.

    I am in the decision boat. But after playing with them i think the plus would be nice when at home, but for daily use i see it being to big. Not practical for things that i do. My opinion

    The fact you are having second thoughts about your 6 and would want to go for the 6+ is actually a decision for you to make.

    I'm not sure if you misread it, but I didn't ask for someone to help make the decision. I asked if anyone else was thinking the same thing.

    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).

    returns of what the 6 or plus or both?
    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.
