    Over the years, the small phones have made me look beta. With the new iPhone 6+, I will finally have a phone that is proportional to my larger body size. I will now look and feel like an alpha male this Friday with my big phone. Who else is tall and ready for the perfect sized iPhone 6+?

    6'0" isn't really tall and 185 isn't that big either
    I'd say you are medium size at best

    Oh, and if you need a phone to make you "feel alpha", well, you have other issues going on other than your "size" ;)

    Most people don't give a crap about what phone you're using.

    Those few who do are almost always Android users because there's just so much variety in that market. iPhones are pretty much ubiquitous and identical; not much variation to be surprised about.

    I use an iPhone 5 myself; just pointing out what I've noticed.

    As for being tall, I am as well (6'5") and I'm looking forward to the slightly bigger screen on the iPhone 6. The 6+ is just too bulky in pockets, I think, though I'm going to play with both in the store before I buy.

    Nah i'm just kidding, but I hope you got my point. I think the 6+ will be the perfect size and I'm not worried about it being too large.

    I'm 4'3" and am tired of these little phones making me look like a giant.

    Now, thanks to the Plus, it'll just look like I'm using a full sized iPad.

    Thanks Apple!

    I'm glad Apple is finally recognising my needs as well. As a midget, I often struggle to use iOS devices, but NO MORE.

    A strapless :apple:Watch is perfect for my build. Kudos to Apple for recognising dwarfism at long last!

    I'm sure the women you date aren't either. ;)

    Really I can't wait to get my 6 Plus.

    The 6 display size isn't much of a jump from the 5.

    Yeah the 6 is really just the 5+.

    My hands are pretty big and I don't use a case so I find the case-less iPhone 5 to sometimes slip out of my hand. I didn't get the iPhone 6+ though because along with big hands come other big body parts and therefore my pants (read: pockets) are already pretty crowded. Doubt I'd be able to fit the overcompensating iPhone in the ol snake tent.

    I'm 6'4 with large hands (can easily palm a basketball if that helps) and I ordered a 6 Plus. I won't say it is the perfect size until I actually hold it and use it for a week.

    Lol. I agree. Man it's so weird seeing guys on our basketball with iPhones. These guys are like 6'8" with an iPhone against their head. It looks so awkward.

    3.5 and 4 inch phones are for pansies I have to agree. I'm also an alpha male and can't way for my 5.5 inch iPhone 6.

    I think exactly like you because of that I order my iphone 10.

    I like to look like a BIG MACHO MAN and you?

    Did anyone else catch the sarcasm in the OP. Oh wait, no, based on your responses, most of you didn't. :D

    Haha, I'm loving the idiocy that the 6+ is for 'alpha men'.

    Good luck using that brick properly with one hand without resorting to the 'reachability' (!) feature.

    The 6 is the gentleman's choice. Classy, discreet, but big enough for what's needed.
