6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

does anyone who has a 6 plus ever wish they stuck with a 6? does the size ever interfere with everyday use...?
I love my plus but sometimes it can be big

Define big. Personally I think it's all how you use your phone. If you use it as a phone most of the time it is probably too big. If you use it as a device for the apps most of the time than its the right screen size but they could have made the top bezel a bit smaller. For me it's a device most of the time and a phone every once in a while so the size is great and the 6, which I own for testing my apps in both screen sizes, seems a bit small.

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

I've felt, since the first week I had it, that it was too large for me...but I'm not willing to lose the functionality benefits of the Plus to go to the regular 6 screen size.

The pluses of the + over rule any issue I may have size wize.

I use to think it was too big but that wore off after about a week. When I use my son's 6 it feels too small so I made the right choice with my plus.

I also thought it was too big at first. I'm used to the size now, and I can't go back to anything smaller

This is exactly how I feel about my nexus 6. Very well said. You lose some things but you gain more.

Don't get me wrong I do love the plus but sometimes depending on my pants and use at the gym it gets annoying

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

Just bought a 6 and I am used to a 5. Right now it feels a little bit big but I really like the bigger screen when I read something. It's the feeling in my hand I have to get use to, it's still a big phone for me but hopefully I get used to it soon

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

Having come from Android and 5" to 6" screens I think the 6 plus is perfect. This thread could only have been started by an avid iPhone user. 😄

Not at all. I live the size especially for how I use it daily.

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

I have had my 6+ for a week after having a launch day 6. The first couple of days there were a few times where I questioned using the larger phone vs the benefits. But now I am completely used to it and can't imagine going back. When I compare to my wife's 6, I really am glad I have the larger screen of the 6+. But it really depends on how you use an iPhone. I don't have an iPad and I use the 6+ for reading RSS feeds (Newsify), safari, trading stocks, videos/photos, and some phone calls. For others I can see where they would prefer the 6 or even 5.

Now I can't see using a smaller screen (although I would love for the iPhone 7 to have smaller bezels).

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

It took me a few weeks to adjust to the size, but I've adapted. I find my habits have changed though, unlike my 5s, I never keep it in my pant pocket anymore unless I'm standing. I've made other adjustments, you just get used to it.

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

For me, within the first few days, I thought I'd made a mistake. But after that first week, I simply couldn't use a smaller device...

Re: 6 plus users do you ever feel like it is too big

99% of the time, I know I made the right choice with the 6 Plus (I had the 6 prior), but the other 1% of the time (and this is very far and few between) I miss the size of the 6 and even the 5S for certain things....but again that 1% occurrence is far and few between.

I absolutely LOVE the big screen experience with the Plus. I have used almost every high end phone on several different OS's over the years and I have always come back to the iPhone, and now with the big screen, its icing on the cake and then some :)

Unless Apple does something to ruin the Apple iPhone experience for me, I will always have my iPhone.....with the big screen :)
