    After holding them both at the store, iPhone 6 it is. I can not imagine using 6+ on regular basis. Wondering what you guys think?

    If you're at all concerned about size, I'd say go with the 6. I think I'm going to be pretty happy with the 6+, but I can tell already that there are absolutely going to be limitations in how much 1-handed use I'll be able to get away with, and I do not have small hands.

    Love the 4.7" iPhone 6; but the + is a better phone for only $100 more! Got to go with the flagship; even if it is bigger then one would like since it has better camera; screen, OS and battery! I was thinking of buying what fits your hand; but after seeing all the reviews; it a no brainer to get the Plus! I may just skip this year; and wait to see if Apple in the 6S makes the 4.7" and the 5.5" have the same components inside in 2015 because I really like the 4.7" size but want the components and features of the Plus.

    the Plus' is better phone no ?s, but I'm thinking of every day use, holding and carrying it 24/7, time will tell, maybe we need adjustment time :confused:, for now 6 it is.

    I would say the 6+ is a better device for sure, but the regular 6 is a far better "phone."

    If feel in hand was my primary deciding factor I'd have gotten the 6 no question, and while it is a factor, it's not the only one and for me, the added features on the 6+ out weigh the in-hand feel of the 6, so I went with the 6+

    The better phone is the one that fits your needs/wants best.

    Honestly, the hardware differences will not matter to most people on a daily basis. Go with the one you prefer.

    For me, as an ex Note 3 user, there's no doubt. 6 plus it is.

    the logical choice is the 6 however if you believe apple and developers will create new features to take advantage of the larger screen size you will eventually go to the plus anyways.

    For all 6+ owners how do you carry it, (getting in/ out of the car, doing something around garage, working in the backyard).
    5S was alway in my front pocket, but I would really like to know 6+ owner...

    In my pocket, same way as my 5... It's a little less comfortable, but hardly impossible like you're making it seem.

    Considering I ditched my note 2 for the smaller htc one; I think the 6 is better for my use. The note 2 was a great device but a collection of small annoyances with its size resulted in me ditching it, eg. car phone holders etc.

    I think this is so stupid. What is beneficial at 5.5, is also beneficial at 4.7. Separating the two and making people lean towards a larger phone they don't want is dumb. Especially from a company who always promoted a phone, and not a phablet.

    I think this is a very individual choice, and these threads serve no purpose. That's just me though.

    As a previous Note 3 owner I'm on the fence between a 6 and 5S! Hahah.

    I use my phone a lot for work but a large phone doesn't work with my social life and outdoor activities namely running but also backpacking (more likely I'll break it).

    I LOVED using my Note 3 but in the end it was making my life more difficult rather then easier.

    Only reason I'm considering the 6 now is because of NFC. If the 5S had that I wouldn't even question the decision.

    This may sway you...

    The NFC chip is not available to developers. This means that only Apple Pay will be able to utilize the NFC chip.

    Sold my Note 3 and matter of fact the S5 as well recently. No more Samsungs for me.

    I like HTC, LG, and Motorola much more. I will not give up with android smartphones but I have with Samsung.

    I completely disagree with this logic. Apple is absolutely fine with the 4.7 inch phone. The larger phone gave customers a choice. They make other devices in different sizes so why not the iPhone. Interestingly they made the ipad smaller and the iPhone bigger. Perfection is somewhere in between.There is still plenty of demand for the smaller size. Not everyone wants a phablet.

    A "better phone" that doesn't fit your lifestyle/pants is not a better phone. If it's better for you, congrats.
