    Yeah. I'm glad I didn't take the plus back which was a strong first instinct. You definitely need to take your time and get used to it. It's a keeper now.

    Glad you ironed it out. I'm loving my 6!

    Stick with the 6. It's 4.7" screen is the perfect sweet spot for use as a daily driver in my opinion. Portability, pocket ability and one handed use for the win!

    Finally, I just said heck with it and restored as a new device.
    As I read through this thread, I began to think that you needed a fresh restore.

    Anytime I've switched from one OS to another (or switched from one device to another), I've always tried to start from scratch. With cloud storage as solid as it is these days, it's not difficult to recover contacts, photos, etc.

    I find it refreshing to start from scratch. It allows you to reconsider what you're putting on your phone. Sometimes apps can get a bit out of hand. I'm not a big fan of app overload.

    Anyhow, glad to hear things are back to normal.

    OP Perhaps you have a corrupted backup. Ever try setting the phone up as new and see if you have the same issues?

    That ended up being my last resort and to this point, all is well. Looks like it very well could be related to the backups I was trying. So far so good and an excellent suggestion.

    Glad it worked! In years past I have had strange quirks when restoring backups of previous gen devices to the new devices. Hope you stay with your 6. It is a fantastic device.

    Is there anyway to retrieve/save your shared photos... the ones shared through iCloud? If so, how?

    I would imagine that if you log back into iCloud and turn photo syncing on, they would be available again? I'm no expert

    I use Dropbox for my photo backups.

    I am concerned with the shared ones. I've created multiple albums strictly to share with the family. I'm concerned they'd be gone. I guess I'll let them know to save what they need to save because they'll be gone once I restore.

    I'm not sure about the shared photo streams. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Can anyone help bgl321 out?

    I haven't had problems with the stock photos app and I have an AT&T 128GB iPhone 6 Plus. I restored from a previous backup.

    Only problems I've had are obvious iOS 8 bugs. Such as wifi lag, screen won't rotate, and today my camera wouldn't do landscape mode, as well as the dialer app freezing. Half those problems I had on my 5S too after iOS 8.

    When I've had trouble after restoring backups instead of setting up as new I've just reset settings instead of erasing all content and settings and it's done the trick each time so far. I haven't had to go to that point yet just reset network settings (that fixed wifi problems on the 5S)

    I'm waiting a little bit longer to send my 5S in for trade in credit though.

    Wife's iPhone 6 is taking pictures upside down and stuff, but other than that, she's been fine...she said she was so used to re-orientating her pictures when they were sent to people anyways, that she didn't notice until she looked at them in her library on the device. Hoping the update fixes this, but if not, we'll be taking it back for a replacement for sure.

    Some people are reporting that calibrating the compass actually fixes the picture orientation issue, I'm going to try it when my wife gets home to see if it works for hers as well!

    Both my iPhone 6 and iPhone 5 have the same wifi lag on iOS 8. I'm not sure if the TouchID sensor on my iPhone 6 is having issues too. Sometimes it won't accept my prints at all. Are my fingers too greasy?

    Wow so you ran out bought 2 phones sold the plus for "huge coin " and then got 3 defective units? 3?

    You don't find it bulky ? I'm still not sold , I fluctuate between love and aggravated...

    But I think the future of phones is 5 ' screens / people with 5s phones are looking to get out of contract because the screen is the size of a chicklet...

    My concern on the 4.7 Is its really not an upgrade.

    Phones are now media devices

    I'll tell you one thing email in landscape is sensational .

    You're still here? I thought after yesterday you'd been schooled enough.

    See little one, I'm blessed in many ways. Financially happens to be one of them so whether I buy one or 100 phones, the fact that it bothers you is laughable. And oh look, you're still on the fence over the big bad 6+ or the downgrade 6.

    One day , hopefully, you'll be able to make a decision. Personally I think you should consider android phones. There's quite a few of your types over there 'bro'. Come back when you reach 18 😘
