    Just wondering if there is anyone else thinking of switching to the regular 6? I've had some serious trouble handling my plus since i got it yesterday and it has me concerned :(

    I'm not concerned just think I won't get used to it. Its great for watching videos but its not comfortable to hold. Will give it a few more days.

    I have the IP6, which I find to be a good size. The + was just too big.

    I predict (yes, I'm calling it already, 1 day after the IP6[+] launch) that the IP7 will be 5", which is a perfect size.

    I'm keeping my Plus. It fits my hand easily and very comfortable to hold.

    My wife is seriously regretting getting the 6 Plus. I think it's going to go back soon.

    After playing around with it myself, I'm personally glad I stuck with the regular 6. Awesome display, but for me, I also find it pretty unwieldily. I can definitely see bigger hands appreciating the Plus, but we are on the other side of the size spectrum.

    At first I thought the plus was too big but after two days it's perfect I used it while standing in line for my 6 reserve and it was great to watch college football on and I'm used to it being in my pocket now that I don't even notice. I have it up to sell but I might take it down or just get a bigger size one and use it as a mini replacement since it's more portable

    My friend replaced his 6 Plus this morning and got the 6. He is now very happy.

    To be honest I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm thinking about it.

    However at this point I'm thinking I will hold off and wait for the iPad event and then figure it out. It's not far off and that will influence what I get.

    Took my plus back today. I bought a 6 And a plus to compare but I only used the plus for 10 minutes. It's a silly huge phone. I thought the G3 was big.....well at least I don't have to second guess anything now.

    No, but I have heard of a ton of people exchanging their 6 for a Plus...

    I did. I reserved one last night and went to pick it up. Realized it was too big for my liking and swapped it for a 128GB 6 in SG. I'm a happy camper!

    I purchased both the plus and the 6, to try out. The plus was returned within 3 hours. Just couldn't get used to it. I pictured myself struggling with the most simple one handed tasks, like swiping to answer calls, or browsing Spotify.

    It's a two-handed device for sure, and it wasn't for me.

    It's big, but I love it. Fits in my pockets and typing hasn't been an issue. I've always typed with two hands, so it's been a seamless transition from the 5s to the large size.

    iPhone 6 Plus, the fastest, most returned phone ever. They'll have a surplus of parts to repair with. My fingers and thumbs fall asleep holding it. Doing things take longer swipes. I appreciate the size and weight of the 5S now. Jobs was right.

    Definitely not. I'm more than happy with my plus. When I was waiting line to reserve my phone I got to hold it and I was immediately sold. The screen is so beautiful. The iPhone 6 looks sad next to it in comparisonin my opinion. I usually texted with two hands, even on my iPhone 5--and even so its light enough to hold in one hand too.

    I felt uncomfortable when i first got my iphone 5 with the taller screens. You get used to it, and using a case helps with grip.

    when i read that people regret their 6 plus last night i decided this morning to get out from the forest and drove 4 hours to the nearest apple reseller and look at the famous plus and it was GORGEOUS. the 6 is too small,im from 5s and the 6 just look the same to me

    Nope. I couldn't go back to a size that small. The Plus for me is perfect.
