    Here's an S5 on top of a 6+ case on top of an iPad Air.

    I notice that the iphone is still narrow. Now I remember why I went to a Galaxy Note 3, the screen is too narrow. The 6 + screen is narrower than a S5. I so want to come back to an iPhone, but not sure that I will.

    6+ is narrow and thin for it's size and that's why it will be easier to hold than most people think.

    thanks op I think the iPhone 6 plus might be close to the htc m8 size which is not bad at all.

    The 6 Plus has a 16:9 screen ratio, the same as galaxy s5 and note 4. I don't know what you're talking about. (And it has a bigger screen than s5, which also makes its display wider)

    Wow, thanks for this OP. Really puts things in perspective. I don't think I'm going to like the 6 Plus to be honest. It's just too stinking big!

    It's bigger than the M8. If you want to get an idea of the size, think Note 3.

    No, I don't think the screen is narrower than an S5. The S5 wallows around quite a bit from side to side and the 6+ doesn't have side bezels THAT wide.

    The S5 in a slim case -- removed for the photo -- was still very close to fitting into the 6+'s case.

    Both phones are 16:9. 6+ has a screen that is .4" bigger so obviously the S5 would have the more narrow screen and body.

    So the 6 plus is about as tall as an iPad in landscape mode?

    Almost. The case goes from the bottom of the iPad to the bottom of the "top" bezel.

    The only issue people are going to have with the 6+ is that it is an extremely tall device and if it isn't put in a case (making it even larger), it will be a slippery SOB to hang on to.
