    Hey, all.

    So I made this thread out of curiosity: for all + owners, did it take you very long to get used to your + model?

    I ask because, after two weeks, I feel like the phone is... small?

    Maybe it's the black case against the black front., or maybe it's the perfect size for my hands....

    In any case, I see a lot of 6's and I can't believe how terribly tiny it looks in comparison.

    But I digest (jokes)

    I see other folks with the + model and it looks absolutely gargantuan in their hands, but it's obviously a perception thing.

    Anyway, I'm very interested to know how everyone else came to, um, grips with their + models?

    I was not sure about the + model. Now I would not go back to the 4.7 model.

    It depends. A phablet is not for everyone. I have the 6S plus and had the 6 plus prior to that. However I was already accustomed to phablets as I spent 2.5 years using Samsung Galaxy notes.

    I went from the iPhone 4 to the original galaxy note in 2012 and I haven't looked back since then. It didn't take me long to ajust at all. I've not used a phone under 5 inches for 4 years.

    My 6S+ seemed perfect for me, even after owning the 6S for a while. NEVER going back.

    After 5 minutes in the Apple Store playing with it. I went from an iPhone 6 to a Nexus 6 and got accustomed after just a few minutes, even though I jumped from 4.7" to 6".

    I've had the 6+ for a year now and it is still too big. Just waiting on the money to be able to afford upgrading to a smaller phone.

    People like to exaggerate, especially in online forums. In reality the Plus isn't that big, and I had no trouble transitioning to it from the 5s.

    You have to make some little compromises carrying the plus, but the extra screen you get is worth it

    Im used to it but whenever I use my wife's 6 I start to like the smaller form factor again. I can type one handed easily and it just feels nice in the hand. I think I would regret switching to the 4.7 though.

    Maybe 5 minutes?

    To be totally honest, the 5s and prior iPhones always seemed way too small.

    I wouldn't have considered an iPhone in the past because of size. I adjusted pretty quickly from a 5.7" Note.

    This really trips me out, I see other people in the subway using the + and the phone looks so much bigger than mine, to the point that I find myself wondering whether they have some unreleased iphone lol. It's really crazy how perception can mess with you like that.

    Or maybe people just have different opinions, and some people really think that the plus is way to big...

    I had a 5S and thought it was the perfect size and thought i'd never want a bigger phone, then I got the 6 and wanted to go bigger, got the 6 Plus. Took a week to get used to and now I want an even bigger phone. If I could get a phone smaller than the iPad Mini...like 6.3 inches that'd be great. Had played with a 6S the other day and was shocked at how small it was. Also I have pretty small hands.

    I never got accustomed to it but I think that has more to do with the slippery back than the size.

    Went from 6 to 6S+....at first I felt like I was using an iPad mini. After a few days, it felt totally normal. I also have the 13 inch iPad Pro. When I first got it, it seemed huge as well. Now when I hop on the wife's 9.7 inch iPad, it feels small to me. Remarkable how the brain adapts. Wouldn't go back to the small version of either one.

    I was adjusted to the Plus model before my 6 Plus even arrived in the mail back in 2014. :D

    Seriously, 5.5" is the sweet spot for me. I love my 6s Plus. Using my mom's 6s is just... weird. It feels like my old iPhone 4 in size.

    I bought a Galaxy S7 back in March and I regret not paying the extra money for the S7 Edge (which is 5.5"). The 5.1" display on the S7, even at only 0.4" difference, is too small for me.

    It took me about a week to get used to it. Now, I can never go back.
