    Well my iPhone 6 Plus comes tomorrow....looking for a good case, probably end up with a Tech 21 and Tempered Glass screen protector. I like my TYTL Qi charger so probably going to either buy a qi charging kit or a dock for my night stand.
    I use a Tech21 and an Apple leather case. I really like the Apple leather case for a simple reason. The power switch is on the right side of the phone like the Samsung you are accustomed to. This is a departure from the old form factor with the power switch on the top. Anyway, the two buttons I use constantly are the power button on the right and the silence toggle on the left. The Leather case allows for easy access to both those buttons whereas the Tech21 case does not. Especially the silence toggle.

    This generation of iphone the toggle seems smaller and the Tech21 case makes it difficult to get my finger in there to toggle, and when using the power button I often inadvertently hit the volume rocker on the left side.

    Lastly, the leather feels really good in the hand.

    I have LA, New York, Dublin, Johannesburg, New Deli, and Seoul as time zones. In horizontal mode a "flattened" world map shows up with a darker grey shade for where its dark across the world. I don't think that the actual places or quantity matter as much as perhaps having more than one world time zone added?

    To be honest, I don't use the iPhone as a bedside clock, although the idea is a good one. I remember doing that with older BlackBerrys that lived in a dock at night. Maybe someone can recommend a good clock for night use.

    You have to use an app. There are plenty of free ones in the AppStore.

    I'm curious regarding any specific takeaways on battery life coming from Android. I've got Droid Turbo right now, but am strongly considering switching to an iPhone 6 plus. My biggest concern is battery life.

    I have not used the Turbo but I have used the Note 4. From my experiences and other conversations here I would say the 6 plus has the best battery life out there right now. I really have to try to drain it in a day.

    I use both the Turbo and 6 Plus. I find the 6 Plus has better battery for me, especially in standby. I could go 2.5 days on a charge but I'm a bad use case. With my Turbo I have 3 launchers downloaded so I mess around with that a bit in my downtime. There is not an Android Central App for ios and I spend quite a bit of time in that app on my Turbo. I would spend more time there on the iPhone but the Mobile Nations websites are beyond terrible so I refuse to visit the Web pages.

    -Connections both wifi and cellular on better on my Turbo. Especially wifi range.

    -As much as I like SwiftKey on Android I'm much more accurate with the iPhone stock keyboard.

    -Camera goes to the iPhone no question. I left my Turbo at home when my family went on vacation. I got some great pics especially with my kids being active and moving in many of the shots.

    -iOS is still a more smooth experience to me. That os just flows like water, lollipop on the Turbo still snags and hangs especially in the recent apps menu for me. I can't say I've had a problem with lagging or app reloading on the 6 Plus. It is not something that has come up in the 5 months I've had it.

    Both are really good phones, which is why I use both. I like stock Android and I'm plenty productive with it. Tried the Note 4 but there was just too much going on for me, great display and camera though. I think you will enjoy the 6 Plus, it is a great device.

    I am getting easily through the day and as a previous Turbo owner, I can easily say the battery life is better on the 6 Plus. I take it off the charger at 5:00 AM and putting it back on the cahrger at 10 :00 at night and usually still have mid 50's of battery life left.

    1) Has never been an issue for me.

    2) See number one.

    3) How to set up and use Do Not Disturb mode on iPhone and iPad | iMore

    4) iOS widgets are not the same, but that can be a good thing.

    5) My iPhone 6 Plus has the best battery life out of any phone I've ever owned. So, it's never an issue for me.
    Have you owned an Android?

    Lightning connector docks charge the iPhone 6 really fast these days, so I wouldn't know why iPhone users would need Qi charging.

    You have not used a Qi charger if you think the advantage is how fast it charges....it is about ease of use.

    I have one in my car, work, kitchen, and by my bed. TYTL chargers and it is so nice just being able to set the phone down and have it charge and not have to use a plug. It is all about usability

    Because it's the convenience of it? Do I care if it charges in 1 hour or 2 hours when I am asleep? Not really .

    There are stock widgets in the notification center and many apps have their own widgets for the NC too. You can't had home screen widgets though.

I find there is a great article with details published at imore is to help you make it, you could search for it. Hope you could get used to your iphone and love it. lol.

    I love my iPhone 6 Plus. I have drank the water. Looking forward to the 6S Plus and being on a two year cycle with the iPhone. No more noise!!!! I felt like with Android I was always chasing the next best thing. Now I have it and it will come to me now, instead of my searching it out.

    The Apple Watch is too expensive and so I am fine either buying a pebble or using my Moto 360 for the time being.

    You came from the S6 active correct? Was that as big of device as the Iphone 6 plus?

    I'm on a Note 4 now and quite honestly tired of chasing the next thing to just to correct lag and awful battery life. I've disabled all I can on the Note and even factory reset and still have the same issues. Who even knows when there will be an update to 5.1.1 and if that will even correct the problems. Its really up to Verizon at this point.

    So now I'm thinking of waiting for the end of this month to see what Moto releases, but then I'm like why would I dump more money into the same issues again.

    In you experience is the 6 plus somewhat hard to carry in you pocket and use one handed?

    As I said I have the note 4 and can pocket it but the 6 plus looks a little larger on spec.

    The 6 Plus doesn't bother me when it's in my pocket. Moto makes great devices but the cameras are inferior to Samsung if that is something you value. Battery life can be as well if you go for something like the Moto X or Moto G.

    Battery life on the 6 Plus is awesome. It can last me almost 3 days and that's with moderate usage.

    I have the Moto Droid Turbo and there is no lag in this device. There seems to be a small stutter when clearing the recent apps once in a while but it's a beast of a phone. IPhone 6 Plus has a better camera, better battery, and a bit of a stutter when I exit safari back to the home screen. I can't compare the size to the note because I've never handled the Note.
