    Ok, it's nearly upgrade time and I need to decide between 6 and 6 plus.

    Obviously, being a man, I want the biggest and best and every time I see a 6 plus I think that's the one I want.

    But how do people carry it around? My 5 goes in either my side or back jeans pocket no problem. Do people find they can do this with a 6 plus? If not, do you all literally hold it all the time when shopping, or buying coffee, or going on a walk?

    Enlighten me!

    I always carry mine in my right front pocket. I have the Apple Black Leather case on it.

    I keep it in my front pocket. I would never put a phone in my back pocket for the same reasons I stopped doing that with my wallet in my early 20s. Too uncomfortable to be sitting on and things fall out of your back pocket much easier than the front.

    Holster. :eek:

    I know it is not fashionable but I find it way more easy to get to my phone while in a holster. Getting into one's nasty pockets while driving is not that easy. I need to be able to get to my phone quickly and when done be able to put it back quickly.

    I am not a student and need not worry about how others might judge me by how I carry my phone! I do what works best for ME!:p

    Exact same set-up, except I have Apple's Blue Leather case. I was surprised at how easy the plus slides in and out of my front pocket.

    Is it not illegal where you live to use your phone while driving? If my phone goes off in my pocket while I am driving I let it ring rather than risk an accident or answer it from my steering wheel if I am driving the family car that has Bluetooth enabled.

    So the general consensus is it fits in a front jeans pocket... interesting, had thought it too big for that!

    These have to be men's pockets. I fit my 6 Plus in my front jeans pocket with plenty of room to spare, though I usually put it in one of the front pockets on my Staad Backpack.

    Women's jean's pockets? forget it.

    Holsters seem tacky to me unless I'm out in the field wearing PPE.

    Back jean pocket (right side). Done this since the day I owned a cellphone back in high school in 2001. <cough>. I did this with my Note 3 for over a year and I do the same with the 6+. I have an Apple black leather case on it. If it's not in my back pocket, it's in my hand.

    During the day at work it's on the desk next to my keyboard - same for at home.

    When I'm driving it's in the tray in front of my Honda Civic's shifter -- yes, the butt end sticks out but makes it perfect for attaching a charging cable while I'm driving. Just have to make sure the phone doesn't slide in front of the shifter so I don't smash the charging cable and the phone when putting the car in park so phone usually sits on top of my wallet (in the tray) which keeps it in place.

    But yeah, can't really bend over and pick something off the ground with this thing back there... I've done it but I can tell my butt is straining against the phone. I'm not a small guy either (36 waist - 5'11) and I don't wear skinny tight jeans.

    My wife (5'1) has the 6+ too. Tho the phone fits in her back jean pocket, only 30% of it does, so it doesn't go there. She holds it most of the time or puts it in a special zipped area in her purse if she can't hold it (pushing a cart).

    ----------

    My coworker does this with his 6+. He's smaller than me but he's been doing it since launch day without any problems. In the same pocket as his keys/change too. <cringe>. Screen looks good to me.

    It is illegal and I seldom text while driving which is much more than I can say for the people driving around me

    Same. Besides, the wife usually has her iPhone hooked up to the car's bluetooth for music purposes. I'd much rather talk to someone on my own time than when I'm driving. My phone spends most of its day on silent. If I have to text, I have and do pull over to the side - put the car in park, and get my texting done, and drive off. Phone on silent (I HATE vibrate so that's always off) doesn't distract while driving. One advantage of being married <cough> is that the wife can take my phone and dictate to me texts and send texts on my behalf while I'm driving :).

    Usually front pocket when I'm walking around. If I'm wearing a jacket, I'll keep in my left breast pocket on the inside of my jacket.

    At work, it sits on my desk next to me. In my car, I use a mount as it doesn't fit in my cup holder.

    Right from pocket with no case. It has some scratches on it, but nothing too bad.

    Probably a silly question, but for those with the 6 plus do you find it makes your pocket uncomfortably hot in warm climates? I was just thinking that a large iPhone that tends to warm up a little when being used might cause you to sweat a little more -- and possibly cause damage.

    With my hand. :p No seriously I carry it in my hand. I once in awhile stick it in my back pocket but about half of it sticks out so obviously I don't like doing that for fear someone would just pluck it out of my pocket.

    I carry a wristlet mostly for a purse because during the week I like to be able to just throw it in my laptop bag instead of lugging a purse and laptop bag. Occasionally I'll stick it in the wristlet but 9/10 it's in my hand.
