    I currently have a 6 plus and have preordered the 6s plus. I tried handling the 6 Plus in an Apple Store to get an idea of the usability of the larger phone. I mishandled it once but it seemed to be ok.
    I have small/ medium hands.
    U want to be objective.
    I have never dropped my iPhone's in the past and hav had every model since the 4s.
    I want the plus to work as I think it has all advantages over the the smaller 6 except for portability
    I just wanted to take a brief survey to see what have users experience been with handling the 6 plus. I am on the fence with switching my order back to the 6s.

    The 6 + is awesome some device and easy to get used to. I can't imagine going back to any smaller screen. The handling has been the same with my other phones, very thin and easy to hold. I usually type with two hands due to the bigger size.

    There are plenty of discussions on the size in the iPhone forum here.. Why not give those a look?

    At a practical level the 6+ and 6S+ are the same size, published dimensions are within 0.1mm. You already answered your own question.

    Really not too much of a difference between the 6s and 6s+ IMHO .78 inches taller and .42 wider. To me (average guy hands) it seems like I'll benefit from the added screen size but really doesn't make much of a difference in everyday hand usage.

    I'm not having any problems handling the iPhone 6 Plus. Granted, I've had the device for quite some time now...

    I got use to the size on my 6 Plus very quickly. I also added a Black Apple Leather case for much needed "grip" because it's slippery.....This works for ME

    Yeah before I ordered I went to an Apple store & played around with a 6 and a 6 plus for a little while to be sure the 6s+ wasn't going to be too much phone. You're right, there's really not a whole lot of difference to be honest. I went with the 6s+ for the longer lasting battery & better camera.

    The only time the size of the 6+ (and my incoming 6s+) is really an issue is when I jog, it is a bit big to carry... but even that I am getting used to. Also feel it in my front pocket and have to adjust sometimes when I sit down... but the big screen makes up for those two issues...

    I had quickly gotten used to larger size. Generally fits in my jean pockets, suit jacket or shirt pocket. One thing for me is I found the bare phone too slippery. Most of time I use Apple leather case. Works great for me one handed no problem with case. Every so often I try the phone naked, but wishing couple days case goes back on. Slippery like a fish! LOL

    Did the op perhaps mean a 6 because if they already had a 6+ then why would they go to the Apple Store to hold one and see how it feels

    I always lean for the bigger phones, even though the size sometimes is a pain to deal with in the end its always better. Had the 6 Plus and had no issues even with a case, but get too big of a case and it can get a bit awkward.
