Which do you value more, screen size or storage capacity?

Disclaimer: I know their are more differences between the 6 and 6+, just trying to make it as simple as possible.

if i could decide that my life would've been 10x easier lmao , if only the base was 32 gas , the 6+ would've been the choice , i can use the 6+ one handed and i like its big screen(tested at applestore) , i also don't mind the 6's screen , and its size is pretty good. Only thing is if i do get the 6+ , right now with no games just apps and music i take up/fill 10 gbs , so the question would be do i want to deal with deleting stuff every time i want to download something, and idk :(

All just depends on what you prefer size wise.

All anyone here will give you is their own opinion which might not necessarily work for your situation.

Personally I would go with the 6 since I value smaller size and one-handed operation.

Got my 6 Plus today - it's absolutely amazing and I love it. Though I'd still choose a 64GB 6 over a 16GB 6 Plus as it's critical for me to have a few essential apps and documents, which just are too big for a 16GB phone.

Can you stretch to a 64GB 6+? Over the lifetime of the phone, the extra money you pay today for 64GB really makes little difference.

Otherwise, I'd stick with the 64GB 6. But I may use it completely differently to you.

I can't imagine anyone who decided on 64GB on one phone would be happy with 16GB on another.

Going with AT&T Next lets you pay in monthly installments, and you're paying for the cost of the phone only without any markup.

i mostly use my iPhone for music , texting , reading emails and searching up stuff on the go , don't really watch that many movies or videos , as i have a 15" retina , but i had to delete all my games on my iPhone 5 16gb as they took too much space , so thats why i chose the 64gb 6 , but the 6+ 's size is just so intriguing it makes me want to get it , but the fact is that with 16gbs i don't even think ill have space to use it ; i also have an iPad , which i let my dad use because i don't really need it in college

I returned my 6+ as it was too big for me. I was afraid the 6 would be too small, especially coming from the 5" HTC One M8, but it's the perfect size for me. Personally, I'd go for more storage space.

funny I was having the same decision I decided to order the 64GB 6

the space is a bit more important to me and the 6 is similar in size as my current phone the galaxy s3 so I know it fits it my pockets with room to spare

Myself I cancelled my then 6 order for a 128 gb 6 plus. For you I would go with more storage. If those two are your only choices my I am of the opinion that more storage is better than a bigger screen.

Iphone 6 64gb.. It's really the same thing except for some superficial differences.. You'll appreciate the one handed use and the extra storage space a lot more.

The 6 is absolutely fine. I love mine. I also checked out the 6+ and I am so glad, that I didn't got it. I think the 6+ with it's 5.5 inch screen was developed because of competitive pressure.

Bingo, competitive is hard to say too since the note 4 is superior in every way, and before I start a flame war I highly dislike Samsung

6+ all the way...I can't stop looking at this friggin screen. Sometimes at work, I use touch id just to lock swipe around for no reason then put the phone down LOL. This phone is something else, my wife has the 6 and its cool and all but even after seeing both, i'll go 6+ 10 out of 10 times

I think getting a phone with less than 32gb of storage nowadays is impractical. I'm a college student and regularly have friends complaining about their 16gb phones and they don't even have music on them. The 6 Plus is cool and all, but it's not worth sacrificing the storage space.
