    i initially got a 6plus. i was having a lot of problems so i sold it and got a 6. i realized i got used to the big screen and battery life. the problems i were having with freezing and other stuff. it was annoying but i could deal with it. battery life was the best. the 6 just seemed smaller. so i spent a bunch of money to realize i should of stuck with it. now i started this one with a fresh install. so hopefully no problems. it shipped with 8.3. maybe the new builds are better. the camera actually seems a little better actually in sharpness. but time will tell.

    You might change your mind and switch to a 6 again :)

    I started out with the 6. Oh how I loved that little beast! But my middle aged eyesight said NO. So I got a 6 plus, which I can read comfortably even when I forget my reading glasses, which is... 95% of the time, lol.

    The thing about that is... lol.

    I don't know that I could go back to a non Plus. Hopefully the day never comes that they get rid of it!

    I went from the 6 to the 6 Plus and I'm back to the 6 again. I prefer the smaller size but do miss the battery life. Sometimes you need a phone to disappear but the Plus never does.

    I went from a 4S to a 5 to a 5S then to a 6 Plus over a 4 year period. Really I did.

    I checked out the 6+ in the store, but for me it's a bit to big. I would prefer the 6.

    I can't see myself going back to a 6+, of course, I currently have one. I'll be selling it once its feasible for me to do so. There's a lot of the 6+ I like but the size is just to awkward for me.

    Yep I also started with the 6 but but the 6+ won me over just for the screen size!

    Enjoy Evilguppy!

    It's all about size.

    I moved from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 6Plus for screen size and battery life and enjoying using it.

    I had an iPhone 6 and woke up one day and decided I wanted to try the Plus. So I sold my 6 and bought a Plus. Now I love the huge screen. I got used to that.

    I love the plus to coming from the 6 but it's hard to find the right case that does not make it twice as big

    i have a really thin one from spigen. its like a piece of plastic when you take it off. but it protects from scratches. just be careful because you know you have an expensive phone!

    got the 6, than 6+ absolutely loved it, till summer came and the problem became saying the phone, back to 6. As much a i loved the 6+ looks like the 6 is just a better choice from portability point of view. I still use my wife phone sometimes in bed :)

    I started with a 6 and ended up with a 5S. That big cheap plastic thing didn't do it for me.

    A bit melodramatic?
