I know everyone will have a fit that I am just sharing my experience since people like to express their opinions about everyone here... But I'll share anyway just in case it might help someone who is on the fence.#

I started it with a 6 and returned it and waited for a Plus. I think the 6 really is the perfect size of complete ease and useability. I was super sure that the 6 would be the best option for me. But there is something special about the Plus. The screen is so fantastic. It sort of draws you in. I am female and am about 5'10" so I have decent sized hands and I can almost use it one handed. If I need to text with one hand I can do it. I can't reach the top diagonal corner but I think I am okay with that. I think I will really appreciate the better battery life and the screen real estate. #. I do slightly wonder though if I will end up with carpel tunnel from using the phone one handed.

Glad you shared your experience. I've had my plus since the 19th and I love it. Now if this post was about the 6, I would have said "so what do you want?" but since it's about my phone, I'm glad you shared your experience :)

I went from 6 to plus then someone in the office got a 6 and today I'm thinking "should I go back to the smaller phone?" Nightmare!

If there are threads like yours, there has got to be more threads along the lines of:

"I think I might prefer the 6 :)" or "The 6 Plus is Not For Me" or "6 to 6 Plus to 6 to 6 Plus... and back to the 6"

I had the 6 and thought it was perfect. Found out the screen was yellow and decided to change it for a Plus. So glad I did. It actually feels like a newer phone as it has different characteristics that the 6 didn't have like landscape mode. Also the resolution of the screen is gorgeous, looking at pictures and videos in that big ass screen is delicious. Specially when you are in the tube all bored and without network.

Perhaps developers will make apps that are easier to use on the 6+ with one hand? I dunno if that can be done, but when I tried one it seemed that some controls were designed back in the teensy iPhone days (some at top, some at bottom, never on side). Anyone know of anything so designed?

Take the test to be sure if you want ;)

I think you should take your "test" down. You are reading way too much into this stuff.

Very simple..you don't need a test..

If you are comfortable carrying the 6+ you're going to get it since it has some nice things the 6 doesn't have (better battery, slightly better display, OIS).

If you would rather have something more portable...get the 6

You don't need a "test" to figure that out..it's common sense.

That's why I'm here...

Many people are torn between the pros and cons of each device, just like I was at first. Yes, some people know what they want, but many don't, and by counting the pros maybe some get a clearer image of which phone offers something they might want. It's not for those who know, it's for those who don't know, and may be too excited or indecisive to apply what you call "common sense"... I am just trying to help, and if it won't happen, it won't, but I'll keep trying even though people will just bash me for doing so.
Guess that's just what MR users are like. Someone attempts to be helpful for others and gets bashed by others, even staff. :(

Why so sensative? Jese..wasn't bashing you..just saying in the 2 sentences I wrote above on the 2 phones, people have enough info on which one to get..

Don't need a test for common sense..wasn't meant to bash you. I realize you were trying to help. Think about it though..it's really simple..

Battery, slightly better display, OIS, less portable..6+
Portable, better battery than 5s but not as good as 6+..get the 6

I think the reload button for safari would be something they could switch. Otherwise I don't spend that much time reaching that far with my left thumb.

I went from the 6 to the Plus to just try it out, and ended up returning the 6. I didn't think I'd like it but now I just can't go back! The Plus is an awesome phone.

Hope it works out for you. Time will tell. Enjoy.

After a "few beers" I re setup my 6 (still waiting to be returned). Wow it seems small! I love the light weight and the portability but think I'm making the right choice in sending back and keeping the Plus.

Poor you. I hope you get through this rough stint. Best of luck to you...
