    Meh. To each their own. I left apple for a bigger screen. Tried the HTC One. Hated it. Tried the Note 3 and liked it well enough. Came back to Apple with the 6+. Very happy with it and it's easier to physically manage than my Note 3.

    It's about everyone's individual needs. I needed more battery and more screen real estate helps with how I use it. I'm an architect in the IT field and I am constantly using my phone to quickly view documents, diagrams, spreadsheets, managing a few hundred emails a day, etc.

    If one handed use is so important to you, then clearly a phablet isn't the right device.

    How many of these 'I don't like my iPhone 6+' threads can we have?

    If you don't like it, return it. NO ONE CARES!

    I'm keeping mine and I'm tired of all these crazy threads. It's ruining the MR forums experience.

    6 minus? :confused:

    I simply posted a link to what I thought was a well written article by a respected website.

    If you don't like it, leave. NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO CLICK ON THREADS!

    How is discussing an Apple product (positively or negatively) ruining the MR experience? Isn't that the entire point of these forums? Discussion about Apple products?

    It was jjudt like reading another thread here on MR about how people don't like the big size. Of course the larger size has some trade offs and apparently even this writer can't make up his mind about iit still.

    Next weeks article "why I kept my iPhone 6 plus"

    People really need to live with th 6+ for a while rather than making a judgement after 12 hours.

    I'm glad he spent a whole 12 hours with it. One day. He gave it one day.

    Perhaps if the article was written by someone who had spend a significant amount of time over the period of 3 days to a week might have more impact than someone's almost knee jerk reaction to a totally different phone size than they're used to. I will give him the benefit of the doubt as he at least mentions at the end of the article that he's going to give another week to see how it might fit into or not fit into his phone usage patterns. But that's only mentioned at the end of the article.

    Hence the reason why apple is coming out with the watch. Big phones stays in the pocket. Do most quickies stuff on the watch. Use 2 hands operation of the phone when needed.

    This is not rocket science.

    It's really a very personal choice which is dependent on so many factors: age, hand size, individual needs, etc.

    What is right for one isn't necessarily right for another person.

    Best suggestion is to spend time with each device and then decide. At this point, most people know someone who has the device(s) and can do their own demo.

    I've debated between keeping my regular 6 and going back to my 5s. My work phone is a 5s and it feels almost tiny in comparison. However I've stuck with smaller phones for ease of use. Debating if I want to go back or can deal with the size.

    I also like the additional stuff like wireless ac, Apple pay etc
