    I love everything about my 6 plus except for one thing. My hands, especially my right, feel like they have arthritis constantly while using. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Maybe what you are feeling is actually arthritis?

    Hand job with the 6+ needs to work muscles not previously used with smartphone use

    Lol at this thread. Heck my hand hurt using the 5s and I have big hands. The 6 plus is to me no different as how my hand feels after using it for a long time. Sure it's bigger but no complaints here. Loving the plus. If it hurts your hand and return it and get the fun sized 6 :)

    Nope. My hand is thanking me for getting a phone without those annoying sharp edges and that little bitty screen where the fingers had to scrunch up to get anything done.

    In general, it's poor ergonomically. Either you have that now, or you'll eventually have it from using it.

    I'd recommend doing hand exercises and stretches, and use the device less. The 6+ is worse than the 6 for it, but really none of them are good for your hands/wrists.

    Clearly a matter of opinion. I have no problem using it primarily one handed with no strain.

    My hand hurt after using an LG G3 for a while in the store after straining to reach everything. That's why I ended up not getting that and waiting for the 4.7" iPhone.

    I d notice the extra weight, but it's not too bad. The thinness of this design is appreciated. It makes it feel smaller than it is.

    You're working some hand muscles that have been dormant up until now. They'll grow!

    Nope. But I've had the Note 2 and 3, so I'm used to it.

    I definitely notice the extra weight when holding it up to read it when I'm a passenger in a moving car. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    Not really, but it's not a unique issue to the iPhone. Holding these devices as we do for extended periods is strenuous. The heavier and more cumbersome it becomes, the more this is exacerbated.

    Sure, you may be doing it as safely as you can, and not notice anything now. But one day, it will. It isn't a natural way to rest the hand, wrists, or fingers. It's important to try to hold these devices in such a way that they feel very neutral.

    None of us want these kinds of pains and problems later.

    You're an expert on ergonomics?

    My comment stands. There's nothing particularly wrong with the size of the device. I have no strain using it whatsoever and plenty of people here share that experience.
