    I'm actually thinking I want to do the opposite. I love how hand/pocket friendly the 6 is but I think I'd rather have the screen size of the 6+.

    I did this exact thing. I bought the 6 on release day. I originally wanted the plus but they didn't have any available. Once I found availability I got the plus. Because I was so used to the 6 I hated the size of it. The same day I returned it to keep my 6. Kept thinking in the back of my head that I didn't give the plus a fair shake. Once I saw availability again, I bought the plus again. This time I absolutely love it. It's a big phone, I just got the Otterbox defender for it and that makes it bigger and even harder to pocket, but I love everything about the size. If I use any other size, like my wife's 5 I feel like I'm holding such a tiny piece of metal.

    I did this. Got the 6 on launch. After a while I wanted the plus. Our son had an upgrade on his line so I got the plus on his line. Then we swapped iPhone's. He got my 6 and I got his plus. After a week I didn't like the plus. I'm an average size guy and couldn't get used to using the plus with one hand. I'm so used to using my iPhones with one hand. Another reason was the plus was too bulky in my jeans. Thought about getting some kind of holster type combo but I don't like holsters or clips. Also when I tried to use the plus with one hand it always felt like I was going to drop it, didn't feel secure. I'm average size like I said but our son who is 16 is bigger than a average full size male, he's 6'5" and has bigger than average hands so the plus works good for him.

    I did the same. 6+ was neat but uncomfortable with one hand.

    Yea don't get me wrong the plus screen is pretty awesome. I stream lots of videos. If I'm not mobile the plus is better than the 6. But for mobility and on the run I prefer the 6.

    After having the Plus for 2 weeks it's getting easier to manipulate one handed. The handling is starting to flow nicely.

    Luckily I own both so I just swap SIM cards whenever I feel like using one or the other

    I have a similar setup

    I ordered the 6 plus and used it for two days before deciding it was too large for my needs, and exchanged it for the 6. I've been using the 6 ever since.

    I personally prefer the iPhone 6. The 6 Plus is a little bit too big.

    I bought the 6 at launch but 10 days ago I got the 6 Plus. At first I thought it was going to be too big, but changing the case from a Spigen Neo Metal to the Apple leather one reduced the size enough that it no longer felt enormous, and it felt nicer in the hand to boot. I have always been a two handed landscape typer so the extra real estate is welcome. My wife was relieved that kept it because she had fallen in love with the 6 and didn't want to go back to the 5S. Best of both worlds for both of us now. I am happy with the size.

    6+ just feels too tall for me. Prefer the dimensions of the 6.

    If it's what you'd rather do, then it's not wrong. I've had huge and tiny phones. I prefer smaller phones and a tablet for anything else.

    I think the 6 is the perfect size device! The plus is way too big for me it's almost like a mini tablet.

    I would prefer iPhone 6 Plus as it has bigger screen size which helps to read all the kind of documents more clearly. And I don't think that it is necesary to keep your mobile always in pocket. Carrying it along your hand with the benfit of bigger screen for better screen watch is the best way to enjoy your phone features.

    I actually like the 6, but the choice is yours. If you feel like the 6 is the device for you, go for it by all means.

    I have the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. My primary device is the 6 Plus as I love the larger sized 1080p screen and watching videos on it. My iPhone 6 only gets used once in a while when I really need to carry something smaller around. I would stick with the 6 Plus as it really does get easier to hold once you get used to it. IMHO, I find my 6 Plus just as comfortable to hold as my 6, ymmv.... Good luck with your decision.

    I had the 6+ for a couple days before switching back to the 6. My only gripe with the 6+ is the screen resolution looked really crappy. Otherwise it was a great phone. I have the six now and it fits perfect in my hand and the resolution is great.
