    Hearing all of the positive feedback on the 6, I might give it a try. I just have to get out to the Apple Store to check it out.

    Confirmed, the 6 feels very much like the 5s -- except, of course, for those with smaller hands.

    Bet there's no new 4" model for a long time, so snap up the 5s in the size you want while you can!
    So...I caved and got a 6. I love it!

    I still think the 4" form factor works though. Some people just aren't going to like the larger sized phones. The 6 really doesn't feel too much larger in the hand.

    I'm really happy with my decision!

    We all are backsliders at heart.

    I too caved and got a 128 GB silver 6 today.

    Feels great. May go caseless to keep it feeling small enough. With no case it's the same size as my 5s with a Fabshell case from Speck.

    I have smaller than average hands so my preferences are going to be uncommon but I wish Apple would, even though it's obviously never going to happen, make a 4.3" phone with the 5/5S design. Would be absolutely perfect. Either way I'm more than happy with 4 inch 5C/5S. Still performs good enough that I haven't and probably won't even consider a 6.

    Having tried the 6 and 6 Plus, I feel even the 6 is too large for me - I cannot reach all areas of the screen with one hand without loosening my grip on the phone.

    I'm really hoping the 5S continues to sell and encourages Apple to re-invest in a hardware refresh of that form factor. Not all of us want a larger phone, and it is a shame to see Apple just follow the herd with the larger phones - whatever happened to their proclamations about the 4" size being the perfect balance?

    In answer to your question, I think the larger sizes of the 6 and 6+ have shown that Apple will react to market desire at the expense of their original intentions. If they see the 5S continues to be a big seller, hopefully they will respond, but I think they are probably inclined to stick to the larger size for the flagship models from now on, perhaps introducing newer features into the 4" line once cost of parts reduces.

    That's what I was wondering. They made the biggest deal about NOT following suit when they released the 5. Now they have gone ahead and released two larger models. One of which is (IMO) absurdly large.

    As I mentioned, I did buy the 6 and I love it thus far. However, I have to admit that my love stems from the improvements over my 5. Not necessarily just the larger screen.

    This thing is much faster than my 5, looks better (display wise), takes great pictures, and is getting great battery life.

    If I had had a 5S, I might have waited for an updated 4". I truly believe they'll update the 4" form factor. I could be wrong but it's possible that a balance exists between 4" and 4.7" - say 4.3"?

    We'll just have to wait and see. For now, I'm just going to enjoy my new device. It really has been a joy to use. Everything is just better.

    I'd be curious to know if there are many people that really felt the 6 was uncomfortable to use, compared to the 5S or 5C.

    Both will still fit in most pockets.

    If anything, I agree that I could see Apple releasing a refresh to the 5C next year.

    It’s hard to say what Apple will do. Past actions are always the best indicator of future actions. In this case, Apple has only increased the screen size once previously - from the 3.5" iPhone 4/4S to the 4" iPhone 5/5S. At that time, they left the 3.5" screen in the dust.

    We’ll have to wait to see what they do next year. My money is no no more 4" screens. We’ll more than likely see 4.7" and 5.5" screens going forward.

    I'm still on the fence. I'm more disappointed that the bezels are so large. I ordered both models, so I guess I'll see Friday but I'm pretty sure I'll be a tad irritated that the 6 Plus is so tall. I mean the device is much taller than the Note 3 which is ridiculously huge but the screen is smaller...SMH
    Maybe the space that makes it so tall is necessary for the features and stuff, like better battery life.

    I think Apple will do whatever demand dictates. But, as usual, it may come slow.

    I'm sure that's what it is. Doesn't matter either way now because I love my 6+

    Not disappointed. 4" is just too small.. (For me). The 6 is a great size, and the 6+ (what I have) is not for everyone. Apple did it good - sales numbers don't lie

    The iPhone is going to sale regardless of the size. Every year it outsells the previous year, but I believe they have more markets as well.

    I personally think the 5/s is the perfect size for me. The 6 isn't bad but it does take a little effort and isn't as comfortable when using a case versus the 5s. I would prefer the 5s if they update the specs.

    At the same time I don't want a 6c with a 4 inch display in a plastic body either.

    For now I'm still happy with my 6.

    There are a few people I know that prefer the small size screens and think the 6, or phones in that size, are too large. I am thinking Apple will keep the 5S size in some shape or form for people like that.

    5s in a 5c shell = 6c!

    That's my wish.

    Having had my 6 for awhile now, I have to say, I really really like it. I'd say it's difficult to use because of its size maybe 20% of the time. I tend to forget about the reachability feature.

    Anyhow, it will be interesting to see what Apple comes up with in the smaller form factor. I think they will introduce a 4" that is identical to the 6/6+ in looks.

    I do still like the 4" size, but 4.7" is much better IMO. I'm not disappointed they didn't refresh the 4" model this year though

    I doubt Apple will release a new 4" model, and if I'm honest I have gotten used to my iPhone 6 plus and would even be happy if the screen was even slightly larger!! Excellent device and screen! Great for watching Netflix

    4.7 is the sweet spot, but I love the 5.5 6 plus

    Nope. 4" was too small. Besides everywhere I see people aren't using their iPhones for phone calls, they're always on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc. And that's where the larger screen makes all that much more enjoyable. The 6 may seem large even to those with smaller hands and are so intent on the 4" screen, but eventually there'll come a point where you'll have to learn to adapt.

    The 5s definitely looks better than the 6 in some aspects

    The 5S, to me, looks better aesthetically. It's also a great size. The 6 looks like a toy.
