    A big slap in the face of awesomeness that is what you can expect.

    Expect a serious step up. The 4 was a world better than the 3G never mind the 6.

    Can only assuming you're joking.

    What are the differences? Everything. Bigger. Faster. Better everything.

    And not just record any video. You can record it in *slow motion*

    Wow

    I still have my 3g and in some "nostalgic" moment sometimes I try to use it a bit... the experience with the thing is orrible!

    Considering also that many apps are no longer available for that phone I am asking myself how you can "survive" with it!! :eek: :D

    Of curse I am a bit exagerating, but the difference for you will be HUGE, even bigger than the PLUS :D :D :D

    Hope you will enjoy your ip6+ as much as I do btw. :apple:

    A phone that can do a whole lot more than you are use to but is going to be a whole lot less conveinent to carry around

    At least you still have same home screen :) and also be careful with your phone bent unexpectedly, which you never thought it could happen with your 3g :)

    So much.. How do you plan on using your phone? The plus is definitely more like a tablet/mini computer than a phone.

    Not to knock the enthusiasm or kill the mood, but you better know that going to a phone of that size and length will completely catch you off guard and likely irritate you since you were used to the 3.5 form factor.

    I might suggest checking out both models in person. The 6 is far more capable of being a one-handed device akin to what you were used to at significant screen size increase. But if you don't want that, then by all means go towards the Plus. Just keep in mind that you'll have to completely change how you use or qualify as a "phone" in terms of the compromised portability.

    Probably not worth the upgrade, its only a few hundred times faster. Wait for the iPhone 9
