    Well I wouldn't necessarily say I "Ditched" my 4S but I've had it for 3 years now and I've been out of contract for nearly a year so it was more like moving on to something BIGGER, better, faster and stronger. :)

    Ditched my 5S, played around with my iPhone 6 for a couple of days and decided to stick with the 6 Plus, even though it's difficult to handle.

    Sold my iPhone 5 to pay for the 6Plus. But I had to sell it a mo th before the announcement so for a month I had to use the original iPhone from 2007. It was hell.

    I ditched my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx phone. The phone did it's job the past two years, but I'm tired of the little quirks that were starting to becoming more annoying as time went on. My buy-in to the Apple eco-system is complete now with my new iPhone.

    Turned off my 5S and put it away in the closet for the 6+. Played with my 5S yesterday, felt a bit small, but I still LOVE it!

    Same here. I didn't feel like the 5/5S was a worthwhile upgrade, and decided the iPhone 6 Plus would be worth the wait. Almost three times the screen real estate, LTE, TouchID, all-day battery life, OIS.

    Had my iPhone 5 for 2 years. Going from that to the Plus has been SUCH a pleasant experience! :)

    Same. I went to buy a 5S at launch but by the time I could find one it was already 2 1/2 - 3 months after launch.. figured it was worth waiting for a new model.. and it certainly was.

    Absolutely LOVE the 6+.

    I ditched a HTC One S, great little phone that took awesome pictures, but wanted something bigger.

    I sold an iphone 5 and then I ditched the 6, because if you are going to go large, go LARGER.

    Left the Note 2 after contemplating grabbing the Note 4. Still not sure I've made the right choice, being that I miss using the Gear.

    Was using an iPhone 5c for work and a 5s for personal. Upgraded the personal phone to the 6 Plus, and swapped the SIM card from the 5c into the 5s. Sold the 5c to offset the purchase of the 6 Plus.

    Still waiting for my 6 plus. I'm using an old iphone 4. I upgraded the 4 for a samsung galaxy something but hated it, and went back to the four. At last Apple has some decent screen sizes.

    Ditched the 5S, which I was reluctant to get last year from my 4S in the first place because I never believed the 5 was a big enough screen size jump. I'm glad they finally realized that not everyone wanted to be stuck in small-hands-world. Tiny phones, tiny productivity.

    So far, the 6+ is a dream come true in terms of size, battery life, and productivity.

    I had a 5S that I gave to my brother who had a barely usable 4S. I then upgraded to the 6:D

    iPhone 5 -> Nexus 5/iPhone 5S -> iPhone 6+.


    I think a display size at around 5.3" is ideal. The Nexus 5 was a great size and felt great in the hand, but the larger display is appreciated. The 6+ might be a tiny bit too big, but I can live with it.

    The iPhone 5 I have around feels ridiculously small now. I can't even type on it anymore, it's like a toy or something. The camera is also terrible compared to the one on the 6+.

    But I have to say, the iPhone 5 is gorgeous in a way that the 6 really isn't. The iPhone 6 design looks OK, and it feels good in the hand, but it isn't especially attractive.

    Battery life is great too, although anandtech shows you can totally kill it in 3.5 hours if you play 3d games, which is definitely true. That said, if you don't play games on it it will last for well over a day.

    Bought the iPhone 5 since I had been waiting for Apple to come out with a larger screen. However, it really wasn't much of an increase but I jumped in. Gladly moved up to the iPhone 6 plus and sold the 5, didn't even want to keep it as a back up after I experienced the 5.5 screen.

    Ditched my trusty iPhone 4. She served me well but was struggling to do just about anything.
