    You'd think that video would make people want the non-plus, only because it makes the standard 6 look really good.

    6 seems like the natural next iPhone, whereas the plus is almost a completely new product, which is also why people want it!

    Personally, I had my heart set on the plus. However, I lift at the gym (while phone is in pocket) and do cardio often so I know carrying around a big phone like that wouldn't be worth it.

    Also, I figured I could do without the OIS as it's not that big of a deal for me. It all comes down to what works best in everyday situations.

    I agree. I think it also depends on how you use it. I'm at my computer a lot. Do I need a huge screen when I am in my car (parked, not driving), in a public place, etc? I don't really think so.

    Now, if my phone was my computer, I'd want the Plus.

    Interesting video ... if you can make it through that guy's speech. He should have written a script.


    The phone seems to fit nicely in the hand and the screen looks to be appreciably larger (vs marginally larger).


    I kept hoping he would overlay the 5/5s over the 6 to get a real comparison view. Alas, I was youtube'd*








    * like when someone says they're going to press a button and almost do it, then they continue talking instead, their finger gets close to pressing, then they take it away, all the while continuing to talk ... and never pressing the button they said they would lol.

    At least we avoided the full youtube experience (ie: shaky video)

    I went ahead and ordered the clear case he showed at the end as well. Looked around and 'ringke' has gotten good reviews. :)

    I've also used seidio spring clip holsters at the gym. Even for the 5 and smaller 4/4S.

    In the pocket with bench and such more often than not phone ended up hitting the mats, or at best dangling in the air from my headphones. For me at least.

    I'm keeping my 5S when the 6 Plus arrives. When I go to the gym, I will just swap out the sim from the Plus to the 5S.

    Agreed. Was planning on the 6 Plus but it sold out incredibly quick so I just went with the 6. Not a huge deal though.

    Good video.

    While I'm set on the 6+, this video really shows how the 6 should be perfectly adequate for anyone

    LOL, that video was just one long not-so-subtle Amazon referral link. The IP6 looks like the real deal at least so I would like to see more videos of the UI responsiveness.

    I think it depends on the video.

    TechCrunch's video for example, I think makes the Plus look the like one to go for (which I had already done!).

    I ordered my girl the gold and this video is kind of making me regret it lol. Think it might be the lighting thats making it look so cheap. Whatever. I'm sure she'll love it its shiny lol

    So it does wobble! 2:10 in the video. Quite a bit too if you're inclined to check the phone when it's laying on a surface. Looks like I may need a case after all.

    That protruding camera would do my nut in. At least Samsung place it centrally for stability.
    Also how many presses is the poor home button going to get if people minimise the rows of icons all the time? A double press used to bring up the app tray, how do you obtain that now?

    Whats the big idea with the wobble lol. Do people play that close attention to their phones when they're resting face down on a flat surface?

    It's still two clicks of the home button. You just tap the home button to bring the apps down. If you use a Macbook you should be familiar with the difference between tapping vs. clicking.

    I'm not going to go out and buy a 64GB iPod, and then sell my iPhone 5S. That's just silly. if something happens to my 6 Plus, I will still need a phone.
