    I went to AT&T to check out the size of the 6 Plus. They didn't have a phone but they had a case that was the same size which I used to get a sense of the size.

    Despite coveting the larger Android phones for years, I thought the 6+ was just too ****** big! It's better the the 5s, but I think Samsung got it right with their 5.1 inch screen size.

    Sooo unfortunate. Sooo disappointing. I may keep my 6+ pre-order active and perhaps try getting used to it, but I'm pretty sure I'll end up the the 6 and continue my android screen envy.

    Well, if that's how you feel, don't get one. A lot of people, like me, actually want a 5.5" screen.

    You should cancel, especially if you preordered from AT&T.

    I think it's small. Just right for a phablet.

    Ugh, another thread.

    I order the iPhone 6 because I wanted a smaller phone, but some people ordered the the 6 Plus because they wanted a bigger phone. Both phones have their merits and target audience, neither is a "fail."

    It's a fail for you. Of course that par for the course for you.

    You did not need to see the case to determine it's size. The Note 3 has been there. Fail.

    So, you go to a store to take a look at a phone that's not even out yet so no store will have a model for you to look at not even Apple stores. You then take a look at the case which is actually not a true representation of the screen size since there is still a bezel around the screen and then the actual case itself (and just to head off any inevitable confusion on your part I am mentioning screen size since that's what you referenced with the Samsung comment) And on top of all of this you are calling the 6+ a fail yet pre-ordered it before going to take a look at anything and are going to keep the order.

    I always enjoy seeing how people justify things. Keep it coming. Thank you. :rolleyes:

    Even though iPhone users are split right now, I think most would agree that Apple should find a way to keep a similar physical size to the 6, and shrink the bezel to fit a 5" + screen.

    This. Why does everyone feel the need to make a new thread when there are dozens of similar discussions going on?


    We need a downvote button that can lock threads if it hits a certain negative vote.

    Cmon guys - cut him some slack. The iPhone 6 plus is a failure, they never sold out at preorder.

    All of these people are quite defensive right now I must say.

    I have a G3 and barely think its small enough to use everyday comfortably. I phone 6+ is just way to big with all of its bezels and what not. I can guarantee the 6s+ will address some of these issues.

    Also you have to remember most of the people on this forum never used a recent android phone so they have no idea what it is like to use a phablet as a daily driver. Picking it up at the phone store is one thing, but using it is another. I think we may see a lot of 6+ returns;)

    anywho my rant is over, Can't wait until my 6 gets in.
