    No way. Inferior camera, inferior screen, and worse inferior battery life.

    Sticking with my plus.

    I am switching from a 6+ to a 6s; while I have loved my 6+, I decided that I would prefer a phone that I could use better with one hand. The novelty of having a bigger battery and screen will be missed, but I think I will be happier since I have smaller hands in general :/

    Worse come to worse, I return my 6s or sell and buy a 6s+

    6+ to 7++ would be my thing unless it's just 7+. I wouldn't get it even if the phone has 2gb ram. It's nice to have..but not worth it...especially if it is the same outer design.

    I am going from the 6+ to the 6S..The main reason I did was because I have been on the 16GB model and afraid of running out of space so going with the 6S to get the 64GB of storage.

    I'm a 6+ owner and just preordered 6s. It just too much hassle carrying around and can't use one hand. I use iPad most of time anyway.
    If u r thinking about 6s+ then u should get it. Everyone is different.

    Yup, me. pain in the ass to use it one handed. I like to be able to use it with one hand like I did with the 5s.

    Screw the camera whatever, that's why I have my DSLR, not even my 6+ can match it :D

    Same. Had 6 Plus since launch, and after getting the new iPad I've decided I just don't need a larger screen phone. The few advantages don't really outweighs the cons.

    Having said that, I'll be on the iPhone upgrade program, and if they release a 7 Plus with smaller overall dimensions (REDUCE THOSE BEZELS) then I can foresee myself switching to the larger model again. The current iteration is just too bulky IMO

    SG 6+ --> RG 6S. Love the screen and battery life, Apple needs to work in the enormous bezels. Just not comfortable, for me, to use on an extended basis. No interest in another iPad, I use my 13" rMBP for everything.

    Yes, I am. I got both the 6 and 6 Plus on launch last year, decided I liked the Plus' battery and screen resolution, then sold the 6. After a full year, the Plus is just too big for me. Rose Gold 6s it is!

    I've had the 6+ since launch and loved it, but I'm going smaller. I've now got an iPad Air 2 which I have with me most of the time as its so light and fits in my handbag. I think for most people, if you have a light or small iPad, you don't really need the larger iPhone. I could never fit it in my pocket, and since Apple Music, I've wanted it in my pocket more. It just feels big when I make a call. They are a bit heavier this year too. The better things about the plus haven't really been used. I'm ok for battery, never fall below 50%, I don't watch video on it much apart form the odd YouTube. The landscape ability was hardly ever used, and OIS won't be missed too much for me I think.

    Let's see how I get on. I've reserved a 64Gb Rose Gold 6s to collect in store on 25th. I can always change to a 6s plus if I need to within the 14 days (and I have a 5c I can borrow if there's no stock for a bit)

    I'll be moving from a normal iPhone 6 to a 7 Plus Next year. And everyone with a 6s will be feeling salty

    OLED Display QHD
    improved 3D Force Touch and taptic feedback 2.0
    New battery technology
    Type C USB
    3GB DDR4 RAM
    PowerVR Series 7000 Graphics (Xbox 360 Level)
    Dual Cameras for 3D scanning
    Apple A10 CPU 2x faster than A9 (A9 is Apples first Quad Core CPU the next one will see massive improvements)
    More efficient body design (weird that the 5.5 inch 6 Plus is heavier and has a smaller display than the new Note 5, 5.7

    Apple A10 CPU to go along with iOS X, A9 CPU goes with iOS9 minor updates iOS X will be huge

    So while the 6s line is a incremental update, along the same lines, the iPhone 7 in about 11 months will be an evolutionary update.

    Not a chance in hell of any of these happening. Looks like you'll be the only salty one...

    Also, the A9 is still dual core.

    I may go to a 6S Plus. Verizon is getting too expensive and T-Mobile has LTE in my area so may switch to them. Plus I mainly work and have wifi at home anyways so coverage should be fine.

    I have a 6 Plus and preordered a 6s. I like everything about the 6 Plus but wasn't happy with the performance. I know the 6s Plus is gonna have better performance and probably solve most of the issues of the 6 Plus, but I kind of like the compact but still larger size of the 6 and it always had solid performance no matter what.

    You know the 6/6S is quite a bit bigger than the 5S was, right? You might still have trouble using it with one hand I know I couldn't use the 6 with one hand which is why I decided I might as well go with the 6+. Not going to go smaller unless apple releases a 4" or smaller phone again, although if you have tried a 6 and can comfortably use it with one hand the I can see why you would want to go down in size.

    I'm lucky w/ VZW: I pay $124 + tax/mo for the More Everything plan for 3 lines and 15GB/data. I've learned to NOT sign anymore 2 year agreements and sell my iPhone every year. Worst case scenario: I pay the equivalent of the subsidized cost for my new phone. Granted, my rate plan also includes a 21% discount through my job.

    I was considering it because the smaller iPhone is a better size practically unless you have huge hands, but the 326ppi put me off, I can notice jaggies at around 10 inches, 6+ is 401 and noticeably sharper. 6s really should have 1080p / 450ppi display, but apple are leaving that till 7.
    I was thinking about it 326ppi came out on the iPhone 4, thats 5 years ago now and no pixel density increase. At the release retina was a revelation and wonderful improvement, but 5 years later and no increase in sharpness, apple has been a bit lazy on this - at lease the 6+ has over 400ppi, it really makes a different to my eyes
