If you asked me about 3 years ago, I would've said that any phone over 5 inches would be too big for me...how times have change. I was planning to wait for the iPhone 7 in september as my contract was up this December. However, with the latest rumours of no headphone part and the possibility that the price in Canada possibly includes my arm or leg (exchange rate), I decided to take the upgrade road early and go from the 6 to the 6S +. Btw, saved 100 bucks and was much cheaper than I originally budget to upgrade (about 700 incl paying the rest of my device balance of the 6 and a otter box case for the 6s+..was expecting to be close to 950 or 1000 ) After using the phone for a bit, all I can say is wow. 3D touch does make a big difference and I use it all the time with emails and with reeder 3. the screen is fantastic and I can see myself playing much more games and watching movies on this than what I did on the 6. The big kicker is the battery...much, much better than the 6, only lost 3% so far after downloading and listening to a podcast this morning. BTW, not a big thing but the live wallpapers are pretty cool and hope apple adds more in the future (not expecting it though). The size does take a bit to get used to but it's actually not bad at all. Maybe losing 70-80lbs made my fingers skinny enough to handle these big phones better . Overall, I'm really really happy that I took the plunge now and excited to use my phone more for movies & games. EDIT: Another reason why I decided to upgrade now is to get in line with the "S" upgrade path.
