    anyone switching from plus to 6s, or anyone switching from 6 to 6s plus?
    What are your reasons?

    Ok I see a lot of you saying upgrading from 5/5s. So let me put it this way.
    This is NOT a thread/poll to see 4.7 or 5.5 which is more popular,
    But to see after about one year, which model gained more "loyal" users.
    Really, a lot of problem doesn't come up without an extensive period of usage.
    Like me, at first I see 6+, God, OIS plus a 1080p screen, I'd go for it. But now I've preordered the smaller 6s. It's more "handy", feels more comfortable. OIS and 1080p screen is just not worth loosing this comfort.

    So, guys with 6/6+, let us know what you think, are you happy with your current screen size or not, and why

    Going from the 6 to 6S Plus.

    Part of me sort of regrets not trying it last year. Another part of me is afraid of not being able to get used to a smaller size in the future if it's too unwieldy. Hopefully the iPhone 7 is a nice balance between the two.

    I am excited about the nicer screen and better battery life though. The difference in size is sort of like having a new form factor on the S cycle as well.

    I'm going from a 6 to a 6s Plus.

    When the 6 came out, I waited a couple of weeks to get mine (mostly because of lack of stock near me in MN). I went into stores and held both phones to see which would be best. I was coming from a 5s, so the 6 Plus seemed much too big for me.

    But after having the 6 for a year, I feel I could adequately use a 6s Plus. Let's hope I'm right....hehe.

    Same boat here.
    Plus is definitely good, but sometimes still too big for one handed operations. Everytime I went to Apple Store and play with with 6, I was amazed how comfortable it is to hold a 6.

    Though I will miss 1080p screen for perfect movie watching and optical image stabilization

    Horizontal home screen "never existed" for me lol

    Yeah that's the biggest concern for me but looking at a lot of last years reviews comparing the cameras there really wasn't much in it.

    I haven't trod 6 yet, so I'm not sure it's software stabilization or optical, but the video is soooo smooth and stable, it's almost not natural..

    Since I'm getting a 6s and my wife is getting 6s+ now, so we will see next week

    I currently have a 6 Plus and reserved a 6S Plus for Friday pickup. But now I'm seriously considering going 6S instead this time around in order to have the device with the maximum performance. Though I've gotten spoiled by the 6 Plus all day battery life. Still have a week to decide for sure.

    6+ --> 6s

    Performance is/was an issue on the 6 Plus and I don't want to deal with it again even if A9 is x% faster or whatever.

    5s to 6s+

    I'm still unsure. I'm thinking of canceling my order and getting a 6s. I'm worried I'll bend the plus. Everyday I go running and put my phone in a tight armband. I also often put my phone in the front pocket of tight jeans. I have strong legs, so the pressure in my pocket is significant. I've ripped a couple jeans from sitting down. I worry my 6s+ is going to end up bent.

    Going from the 5S to 6s+. Why wouldn't everyone want a bigger screen?

    Going from 6 to 6s+. I'm excited for the larger screen, bigger battery and camera, but I can reach every single part of the iPhone 6 screen with one hand, so I might miss that. I don't think I ever use it one handed, but I keep catching myself doing it.

    It's too large, you will see when you try to use it one handed.

    After six month, go back to Apple Store and try 6s again, you will be amazed.

    Wow, the frame of the 4 fits inside the screen of the Plus. Your old phone will feel like a toy after a week or so :D
