    So, has anybody used their 14-day return period to trade their new iPhone 6s+, and downsize to the 6s yet?

    I'd be interested in knowing how many of those that have were iPhone 6 users that found the bigger phone to be unwieldy or hard to use vs. the much more portable & one-hand-usage friendly smaller one.

    Nope! It really depends on hand size and eye sight my almost 45 year old eyes prefers "plus"

    I just went to the 6S, Silver 64 GB.

    I want to like the 6S+ because of the screen, OIS, and excellent battery life. I really do. And it's a great phone.

    BUT, the size of the 6S is just right for me. It fits much better in my suit pockets than the 6S+ did, and it's just not as noticeable when it's in the shorts and/or jean pockets. Of great importance for me is that it doesn't feel like I have a brick on my arm when I'm running or lifting at the gym. That's key for me, and something I never really got used to (had the 6 Plus for nearly a year as well).

    The battery life is ok, and I'm always near a charger, either at my desk or in my car, so it's not really a worry for me. I don't really notice any difference in the pictures between the 6S and 6S+, but that's just me. It's perfect for quick photos of my kids, etc. If I need great performance, I grab my mirrorless.

    I miss the screen for quick YouTube videos and brief Netflix sessions, but for any heavy gaming or binge watching, I grab my iPad Air 2.

    The plus is just too big for me. Lady pockets barely hold the 6s. I also run a lot and the plus is terrible to carry around for that. I loved the battery life of my plus but it was not practical for my needs.

    I always hear people talk about how
    nice it is to have all that screen real estate but every time I use my finance's 6 plus it's a chore. I can't wait to get back to my 6. Same with my iPad mini 2 and her iPad Air.

    And it peeves me so bad when people talk about how the plus's camera is better than the 6 /6s simply because it has OIS.

    Ask Anyone who knows even a little about cameras and they'll say that OIS in a tiny *** smartphone camera hardly makes a difference. Good digital stabilization on a smartphone is way better than even better than average OIS. Plus you can only really tell a difference between the 6s and plus if they are side by side.

    I'll bet anyone on the forum that if there were two pictures side by side that unless you knew that'd you never be able to accurately guess which was the 6S and which was the plus.


    Also I love love love the battery life of the plus but the user experience is so much worse than the 6 that it's not worth it. I want my phone to be a phone. If I wanted a tablet I'd get a tablet.


    PS I have pretty small hands lol. If you like the size of your 6 I'm genuinely happy for you.



    Oh and a lot of people have said they also like the plus better because it's 1080p

    Well unless I got close and squinted I've never once noticed her plus being sharper despite the higher ppi. Now if they'd have made the plus with 326ppi like the 6 it'd be like sandpaper on my eyes haha.

    Yep. That's what I did. Size of the plus is just too much. Battery life on the 6s has been surprisingly good. Impressive even. At least with the way I use a phone.

    To me the extra screen real estate is worth the slight inconvenience of having a large phone. This is coming from a guy with pretty sizable hands though.

    I've read quite a few benchmark reports showing that the 6s Plus outperforms the 6s. Has anyone else seen this? If I run across one I'll post the URL.

    I've always seen it the other way around. The 6S ever so slight "outperforms" the 6S+ because the same processor has fewer pixels to push. I don't think any of us would ever notice in real world, day-to-day usage though.

    Could be. I haven't actually measured the performance side by side with my wife's 6s. I'm just going by what I've read. Either way, I'm sure the difference is negligible.

    I had the 6 Plus last year and then switched to the 6. This time around, I went straight for the 6S. I am enjoying having a more compact smartphone to handle. When I really want to consume content, I will use my iPad.

    Kinda wish I went with the plus over the regular this time around. I dropped my 6S without a case and scratched it already so there goes my return opportunity haha. Looks like I'm keeping it a while.

    Still worth a try exchanging it depending how bad the scratch is.

    My wife has a 6S+ and I can't tell a difference in performance at all. Both phones are crazy fast and have way more horsepower than any app out there right now could ever take advantage of.

    I'm honestly on the fence. I had a 6 plus and now a 6s. I went to the Portland Apple Store this weekend and played with the 6s plus again; didn't like the size. That said, I'm not used to not having the battery life I did with the 6 plus. I had to buy a battery pack this weekend and it sucked carrying it around. It's not a regular occurrence traveling but when you aren't near outlets, it's sure is nice having that security with the plus.

    I might end up doing the opposite actually. Might go from 6s SG for a 6s+ RG.

    I opted for a 6s, moved down from a 6+ and now I am waiting for my 6s+. I tried, but once you go +....


    EDIT:

    I got my 6s+ and after my using my 6s for a couple of weeks, I just cant do the + this time around. Happy with my 6s.

    I just returned my iPhone 6s for a 6s plus.
    Couldn't get used to the lower resolution screen, really wish The 6s had a 1080p panel.

    I haven't really noticed a difference. When I went from my 6 Plus to the regular 6, it seemed the same to me.
