    so right now I have a 6 plus on order, but after some reviews and this whole bending controversy, I'm considering canceling it and ordering the 6.

    I mostly use my phone for video watching, gaming, browsing, texting, and audio listening. I figured the plus and its bigger screen might have been better for that. But the 6 seems like a good size also.

    What do you guys think?

    Love my 6 plus. No problems at all. But then again I don't put it in my back pocket and sit on it.

    I don't either. But I'm wondering if it could bend in the front pocket?

    I carry mine in my front pocket everyday since I got it and have no concern at all that I would be able to bend this phone in my front pocket. I'm 6 foot 3 and 230 Lbs.

    Haven't you already placed an order for the 6, canceled it, then ordered the 6Plus, and now you're thinking of canceling again?
    How in the world do you ever decide what to eat for breakfast? Or what clothes to put on in the morning? As much as I love my iPhone, it is just a phone. Pick one and be done with it. It's not the end of the world even if you make the "wrong" choice.

    Yeah, I know. I'm just a indecisive person I guess and want to avoid making the wrong choice

    This is a question only you can answer for yourself based on your personal needs. They both have the a8, and both are so similar that one really doesn't have the lead on the other. If you enjoy movies, taking photos and editing photos the plus might be better for you as it has the auto stabilization, and the 1080p screen. If your more the power driver on the fly guy texting his day away then the 6 might be more your style. Don't make a choice based on what other people think cause everyone has different needs.

    Some people aren't suited for phone ownership during the first month that it's out.

    I like the 6, as I keep my phone in my hip pocket. If I wore a suit each day with a good inside jacket pocket, then the 6 Plus might make more sense for me, but I don't.

    These are the sorts of factors that guide phone choice.

    Get the 6+ if you don't like it return it for a 6 if you don't like the 6 return it for a 6+ slide to the left then repeat.

    Ravensword, order both, try them both at home, unhurried and without anyone around to mess with your head with their opinions and then decide. Any of us here could tell you why each of us think one is better than the other but you're the only one who can make that decision.

    So I decided I'm actually going to just get the 6 and cancel the plus. I thought is like the bigger screen for video and gaming and while the big screen would make those better the fact of the matter is I still have to put this thing in my front pocket. Which could prove uncomfortable. Maybe my next upgrade I'll check out the large sized iPhone again, but for now the 6 is a good step up I think. Hopefully art resets my upgrade soon.

    Yeah, I'm sure. While the 6 isn't a huge upgrade in screen size, I think it's a good one. I'm just not ready to get on the pjs let train just yet. Maybe one day I will, but I'm more comfortable going to 4.7.

    Again, hoping the upgrade gets freed up soon. Last time it was 20 minutes to reset. But this time it's not that quick it seems.

    You guys are mean

    Lol. Jk. But I do think this will be the better choice for me. My original gut reaction since using the two was going for the 6. But listened to some tech people and then switched it to the plus. I just should have went with my first guy reaction.

    Hopefully at dosent hold my upgrade for ransom like last time

    No. I wasn't even aware you did that. My main worry was if it'll be under too much pressure in my jeans front pocket (they fit rather snug on me)

    Maybe I'll keep the order and just see how I like it. I do want that extra battery and the big screen will be good for games and movies. But perhaps the 4.7 screen will be good at those things as well. .

    This bending deal is way overblown. It only happened to a handful of people. Just take care of it and you will be fine.

    I had this same inner struggle in the end, they are both awesome phones with a long list of things that make them "perfect for you". My advice? After you get the 6, stay away from tech blogs and review sites for a month and make up your own mind. It's easy to forget that reviews and articles are just a single persons opinion, not gospel.

    Good luck!

    I love the 6. I have no use for the beefed up specs of the 6 plus, and I cannot for the life of me, see myself trying to shove something the size of a French door in my pocket. Not happening.

    Sure the 6 will be good at those things but it won't be a significant difference from what you have now. Certainly not worth burning an upgrade over (JMO though). I'd recommend the Plus and ignore all that other crap that's hitting the net. Trust me, it's a great device and Applecare has you covered if you truly have any concerns. It fits easily in your pocket. Being thinner than the 5S makes a difference there as well. And unless you got baby hands, you'll think it's an upgrade worth using. The Plus is actually double the battery life of my 5S. Maybe my 5S is defective but yeah, it's something you'll notice. I find it hard typing on the 5S or even looking at it after using the Plus for a week.

    Yeah, I wanted the bigger battery. And since I don't really make calls that much, it seems like the extra screen size of the plus would be beneficial since u do a lot of video watching, reading, and games on my phone.

    To me I chose the iphone 6 because I am not a fan of big phones and the 6 plus seems way to big for me. But I understand why you would want a bigger phone and screen. If you have clear vision and don't wanna carry anything to big I think the iphone 6 would be the better option
