As an iPhone 6 user, I am jealous of you 6+ users.

    Now after having the 6 since launch day, I think I would prefer the + as opposed to mine. While I don't have the biggest hands in the world, I would probably enjoy typing on that size screen more than my 6. No hate, I love my phone... Just a bit jealous of the +.

    Why didn't you get the 6+ in the first place?

    This is a "the grass is greener on the other side" thing for some people. Some may be envious of the 6+ but once they try it they find the larger size is too impractical for one-handed use. Others can't be more happy with their 6+.

    Just go ahead and switch

    Well if you really want a plus, just sell yours, add a bit of money and get a plus. It really wouldn't be that much money, maybe a few hundred all said and done. And when you're talking using this thing for 12-24 months with an expensive phone bill, you need to be happy and have what you want. Not worth a few hundred to stay unhappy for that long.

    That's very true, I wonder if a possible trade would be good or sell outright

    That is envy not jealousy and it's sad.

    The plus is a bigger phone than it should be. Sure its thin, but due to its height it's even longer than android phones with bigger screens.

    I would wait until apple remakes the 6 plus smaller as long you're happy with your 6 in the meantime.

    The plus doesn't seem natural to me. It feels like it's trying too hard to be something it's not. I'll contribute that to the lack of software enhancements to utilize that screen. IMO 5" would have been a sweet spot. Keep OIS and little bit bigger battery and sell one iPhone 6.

    The 6+ isn't changing form factor until 2016. If you want it, get it.

    Any size irregularities will be eventually forgotten once you experience the superior display and battery life.

    Don't trade it in. Sell it via EBAY or other means, you will get more for it!

    I had the same experience . I had an iphone 5 and was totally against huge phones. I went to see the 6, saw the 6 plus - fell in love with it and sold my 5 and got the 6 plus and now am loving it. To me the biggest plus is not the camera or the screen - its the battery life. The battery life is nothing short of phenomenal! I get longer battery life than my iPad and its actually very hard to drain the phone ! Samsung got it right with the phone- I used to snicker at people with the note series but now have realised that I was wrong!!

    I'm happy with my iPhone 6. For now, it's the perfect size. I just wish more developers would push out 6/6+ optimized apps. Even the MacRumors app that I use is not optimized yet :(

    Lemme guess, both of you are 6 owners. :D. Typical response. Comparing the 6 Plus to the size of other ANDROID phones is senseless. My 6 Plus feels very natural to me and the screen real estate makes web surfing and iMessaging so much better.

    It's a great size as-is. No complaints here.

    Don't anthropomorphise iPhones. They hate when people do that.
