What a Dilemma, I bough my 6+ at launch date and love it, received my wife's 6 this past week and I love how it feels on the hand and how light it is compared to the 6+.

I got the 6+ because of the battery size and screen size, but every time I use my wife's phone I want to sell my 6+ and get a 6 lol.

Anyone experiencing the same?

My suggestion: stop using your wife's phone.

Keep the plus. You only thought it was heavy after comparing your wife's phone.

You'll largely be disappointed with the batter and smaller screen at this point.

I used my girlfriends 6 while I waited for my 6+ to come. Now that I got my 6+ I cant i cant go back to the 6. The screen on the 6+ plus the battery are too good.

The 6 is attractive due to the lightweight feel and ease of pocketing. It's a nice upgrade, but if you really enjoyed the 6+, you will ultimately find the 6 a letdown.

I also find the size and weight of the 6 to be pretty attractive whenever I pick up my wife's, but I think I would miss the other advantages of the Plus if I had a six. Ultimately, the solution is probably to stop comparing the two and just get used to the Plus.

I purchased a 6 Plus on launch day. I recently purchased another 6 Plus (Space Gray, and wanted the Verizon model instead of AT&T model, even though I'm on AT&T) because I regret getting Gold on launch day so I ended up selling that phone (since I was past the return date).

Anyways after playing with my 6 Plus, I could never go to a 6 because it's way too small for me. Even when I go to the apple store, I always end up holding the 6 Plus.

I've always wanted a bigger screen but never wanted to leave the iOS world. After using my iPhone 6+ for 3.5 weeks now, there is now way I would go back to anything smaller no matter how slick and light they might be.

Switch to the 6. One handed use is the best! The innovation is not with the larger phablets. Its the smaller phones that have the power to do what the larger devices could easily do better.

Being able to take selfies with one hand and being completely not affected by the bendgate comments and not having to have a huge device in my pocket when I wear jeans is a luxury.

Battery life is better on the +, but the iphone 6 already lasts more than a day for me, thats enough to beat out all the other phones out there.

Now if Apple could have some project volta-like project that increased the battery life through an iOS update... that would be really something.

You can't take selfies with one hand on the Plus? News to me.
Take a selfie when your back camera is on.. You've got to:

1) Change your grip/slip your phone so your thumb can reach that button.
2) If you want to turn on HDR, you have to change your grip/slip your phone so your thumb can reach that button.
3) Same if you want to use flash
4) "Reachability"
5) The above being weird and cumbersome, so you'll likely just use two hands.

Uh, or you can just grip around the phone securely and use your index finger on the "volume up" button to take the photo. Problem solved, and much less clunky than using your thumb for the on-screen button regardless of the device size.
