    I got my Apple Leather case in the mail today for my iPhone 6 that is coming on Friday. And it's really not as big as I thought it would be. I'm starting to regret not getting the 6 Plus.

    Anyone else?

    ^ What he said. I'm sure you'll be just as happy with the 6.

    People are seriously getting buyers remorse already? Listen, yall knew the sizes and what you were getting into. I'm suggesting that if you REALLY want the plus, either return it, or try and flip the 6 on ebay immediately and spend your earnings on getting the phone you really want. Oh, that and just wait til the phones in hand before you go making decisions...

    Send the 6 back and get a 6 plus instead? I'm sure it won't be that difficult.

    Has your 6 shipped yet? If not, you can cancel the order and re order the 6+ so you can at least have one in Oct. It might be hard to find a 6+ in store to exchange for a few months. Only if you are sure the 6 is to small for you. And by the way, it is ok to change your mind ;)

    I would encourage anyone who hasn't ordered yet or plans to go to a store on Friday to print out a template of both phone sizes and compare. The size of the plus will surprise you. It's not the behemoth it appears to be in pictures.

    As for OP, it's still gonna be a kick ass phone no matter the size. If you're not satisfied, return and get a plus.

    There have been a few threads that contain links to certain life-size cut-outs of the Plus, should have checked that out first!

    I think I'll return the 6 when I get it Friday.

    On Apple's website it says 3-4 weeks to ship for the 6 Plus, but it says in store pickup on 9/19. Does that mean I'm guaranteed to get one if I choose in store pickup?

    You're not the only one. :)

    I've been going back and forth too. Played with a Galaxy Note 2 that has the same size screen... Giant screen sure is nice.

    I'm going to try mine out for 10 days or so, and if it's not big enough then return it. A pain, sure, but oh well. :)

    9/19? Lol no way unless you live in Alaska or some place

    Edit: I think your looking where it says "visit a retail store 9/19"

    It's plenty big versus the prior iPhones. Weren't you satisfied with any one of those?

    Bingo - It's basically a Note 3. If you're good with the Note 3, get yourself an iPhone +. If you think it's outsized (like me), get a 6. I'm at a loss for why this continues to be a hand-wringing issue when it's literally as easy as going to your nearest cellphone retailer and asking to fondle the Note 3.

    Those who preordered the iPhone 6 without doing their research will get burned just like the 6 Plus owners who did likewise. Goes both ways.

    It's not really a secret that it isn't much bigger and allows you to compare the size between models.

    If anything, it's actually a good thing that it's hardly any wider because we'll be able to handle it as we've always done.

    I mean I think the 6+ is big, but the 6 looks small. It's not that much bigger than the 5s. Should have been 5 inches for the 6 and 5.7 for the 6+.

    That why I ordered the Plus the 6 feels like my old samsung galaxy s3.
    Most smartphones next year will all be around the 5 inch+.

    I went with the 6+ because the regular 6 did not seem like an upgrade at all from my 5s. The 6 is only a little bigger than the 5s.

    I wanted it to "feel" like a real upgrade, if that makes any sense :D

    Same here too I still have my iPhone 5s no point for me to upgrade to the 6.
