Has anyone switched back to 6s from 6s Plus?

    I had an iPhone 6, but when the 6s/6s Plus came out, I went for the bigger one. I don't have much of a problem with one handed use, but it is slightly uncomfortable. I love the batter life, and the larger screen is great for watching videos, though I don't do much of that.

    I just feel like the phone is really heavy, especially with a case on it. I miss the light feathery feel of my 6.

    Has anyone else switched back to the 4.7" from the 5.5"?

    I would wait until 7+ out, and handling in store or at least make a mockup when spec is out, before switch.

    Increase thickness and weight for 3-D touch screen, stronger case, & other component add/improve from 6+ to 6s+, for me, unless you have a big hand, is just too much.

    It will not surprised me 7+ is both lighter and thinner, maybe even slightly narrower. A slight width, thickness, & weight different could make a huge different in daily use J.us compare a 6s+ with and without a decent protection case.

    Should also be worth noting the 6S+ is a heavier and slightly thicker phone than it's predecessor.

    The 6/6s is too small for me. I prefer the size of the 6+/6s+.

    I also don't use cases so there is no additional weight added. That said, I will say that I prefer the way the 6+ felt in my hand versus the way the 6s+ feels in my hand. I can't explain that at all, it just "feels" different.

    I have both a 6 and 6s+, and I switch back every couple weeks or so. But, I find I pick the 6S+ to use at least 80% of time. For me, the much longer battery life, bigger screen, and quick/smoothness of it wins over smaller portability.

    I have the 6s+ but wish there was a 5 inch phone...The 6s seems a tad too small for my liking. I'll probably downgrade to the 7 when it comes out though because it'll be less heavy and cumbersome.

    I'm using the 6S plus and have no interest in switching back. The screen quality on the 6S is what I dislike the most, if that had the same screen resolution as the plus I would likely consider it but I think the added battery life in the plus is far more beneficial to me than anything else. I used to be one who thought the 6 plus / 6S plus was way too big. Then I tried one and it wasn't bad at all. I can still use it one handed, while its not ideal for full time one handed use I can still send a message/email or make a phone call with one hand if needed.

    I have both and I use the 6s 90% of the time. Next go around I think I'll just go with the smaller version.

    I did...I kept the 6 for the year after testing both for a few weeks and then went back to the plus again when the 6s plus again
    When I went to the 6s plus I bought a device like this one. People think I am somehow associated with the iRing...but I'm not. The iRing started to crack but I had ordered this one as a back up so I'm using it now. It has made all the difference with holding the comfortably.

    Didn't have the 6S Plus but did switch from 128GB 6 to 128GB 6 Plus and on tomorrow, from 128GB 6 Plus to 64GB 6S when my Swappa purchase arrives. I'm pretty friggin' excited. HA

    I'd switch from my 6s Plus to a 6s tomorrow if I could make it work with the Upgrade Program.

    My 6s is getting replaced by Apple due to a battery problem, while I'm waiting for my new one I've been using my old 6 plus. I almost prefer this over the 6s, the resolution the battery life the screen it's all better. Only thing I miss is the speed of the 6s.

    Why not the 6S+ ? It's best of two worlds ;)

    I'm currently back and forth between a Nexus 6 and iPhone 6, and in the fall a 7+ is my only option if I upgrade. The 4.7" display is too tiny for me. Typing is cramped and there isn't a lot of room to get stuff done. The battery life of the Plus is its biggest selling point to me though. That is the main reason I'd choose it over a standard 7.

    I'm curious how many carry the 6s+ in their front pocket, and if so, do you have to take it out every time you sit down? My current M8s height is borderline uncomfortable sitting in jeans, can't imagine the iPhone.

    Baggy jeans, my friend...LOL.

    I usually carry my phone in my back pocket now and its always in my mind when I sit. On the occasions I need to be in pants for work, I'll carry it in my jacket pocket.

    I have just come down a size from iPhone 6 plus, i must add the iPhone 6s for me feels a lot more better in my hands, as much as i loved the big form factor the plus 6, I missed typing to messages with one hand. i couldn't do that with the six plus, or at least when i did i struggled.

    Another bonus the 6s doesn't stick out of my pockets out of my suit pants or suit jacket, the 6s fits nicely.

    I could never get in the the business shirt pocket - it just locked weird. :p

    I'm going to be going from a 6 plus to either a 6s or a 5Se. I'm not sure which right now, as I'm waiting to see what Apple does next month.

    That's exactly what I'm doing once I get my 6s back :)

    I have dress slacks or normal non-skinny jeans and my 6 plus fits just fine in my front pocket.

    Like from the 90's or modern ;)
    With the rise of skinnier jeans my M8 is even feeling the squeeze.

    Are you going to wait for the 7 if you choose to get a 4.7" iPhone?

    I'm probably not going to wait until the 7. The rumored double lens is intriguing but I really do not want to deal with an even thinner phone with no audio jack. I'm going to see what the 5Se looks like, and if that doesn't meet my needs, I'll buy a 6s outright at that point. if the 7 blows me away, then I'll sell the 6s on swappa.

    Im 6'2" and 220-225lbs so my legs are somewhat thick, lol. Dress pants wouldnt look right if I get them as loose as my jeans.

    Definitely not from the 90s, LOL. My jeans dont fall off/hang half way down my ass showing half my boxers. Loose fit would be the exact description and I go a size up around the waist and wear a belt.
