    I have the iPhone 6, not the Plus. However, I do enjoy its screen size for watching Netflix when my iPad is charging or when I don't bring my iPad with me.

    It's fine. Why don't you give it a try yourself?

    Usually when I'm watching a movie, I'm either traveling or at home where my iPad is as well. I always opt for the iPad in this case.

    I've watched full movies via Netflix even on my 5s.

    I've watched movies on my 4.7" HTC One and it is fine. I imagine that it would be better on the 6+.

    I've not watched any movies on a phone yet, but watched lots of TV shows. I've loaded several up onto my 6 plus so I'm planing on watching some soon.

    I find the 6+ to be great for movie watching. Of course a larger screen is nice. But, it displays very well and audio is good enough not to "need" headphones. That may vary by movie though. I ripped mine and keep them on the iPhone. About 6 at a time.

    I bought the iPhone 6 Plus because of my Movies/TV Show library. The iPhone 5S was great, but the 4" screen plus the screen not HD 720p or even 1080p was disappointing. The 5.5" 1080p screen is absolutely amazing. Watching Full HD videos is crisp and enjoyable. Some of the Movies are letterbox like a typical movie on TV, while most of my TV shows are full screen 5.5".

    I've warched quite a few movies streamed from xbmc to infuse on my plus. I tend to watch them in bed while my wife is asleep so as not to wake her. I find it quite enjoyable and the size is just fine.

    Infuse also lets you store the files locally without having tonsubc with iTunes, so it's rather awesome in that way. I did find a bug that I was told to contact them via email about though. Haven't heard back, been abot a week, but holidays and all...

    I usually don't watch movies on my Plus because I'm generally near larger TVs that fill the need better. However I do watch YouTube videos from time to time and they look gorgeous in 1080p. The screen is fairly close to ones eyes so it really looks like a 40-50" depending on how far it is away from you. Since the pixel density is high videos are beautiful.

    I watched all of band of brothers and the pacific on my 4s.

    The screen on the 6 plus is way better than that too. I'm going to watch some house of cards on it later probably.

    6 plus is great for watching movies on the go, especially on a flight in economy class or commuting on a bus or train.

    Both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is noticeably bigger than the iPhone 5 being too small to enjoy movies.
    I have the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 6S.
    However when you have an iPad, iPhone 6 Plus is not big enough unlike the iPad Mini/ iPad Air and iPad Pro.
    Remember:
    1. iPad Mini 7.9 inch is about 2.4 Times bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus.
    2. iPhone 6 Plus when watching movies even at 5.5" is just 2.2 times bigger than 3.5 inch iPhone.

    See??
    iPad Mini and iPad Air can replace laptop for watching movies as they are closer to laptop size than Phones.
    While iPad Pro 12.9 Inch completely replace HDTV FLAT TV television since iPad Pro is more portable

    My 6S Plus is the biggest phone I have ever owned and I must say watching full length movies is quite enjoyable compared to the smaller phones I'm used to.
    Not as enjoyable as my iPad mind you, but for the portability of an iPhone I can't complain.

    I watch both movies and shows on my 6plus all the time. It really helps to have a kickstand case and Bluetooth headphones. I really like it, the extra screen size made a huge difference over my 5s.
