    One of my Asian shops got them in today and I took one home to get a sense of how "BIG" the iPhone 6 will be.

    I don't see it as a life-assessment issue at all. I see it as a disadvantage.

    Although I have finally broken the horribly stupid habit of texting while driving, there are certainly times I want to access something on my phone like maps or "mobile phone" feature that I enjoy the use of only one hand to do vs. having to stop, take both hands off the steering wheel & do. Although I'm super ready for a larger display, I will miss one handed use a lot.

    Keep your phone in your pocket before you kill yourself or somebody else.

    It's the 4.7", my shop didn't get the 5.5"

    One handed operations main focus is navigating the entire screen with one thumb while securely holding phone, regardless of your activities. Nothing to do with texting and driving, the keyboard is still fully accessible with one thumb on the 4.7" model, that ain't gonan stop the dinosaurs from doing it.

    Even with a full tactile keyboard in 2003 on my Treo 600, it was impossible to text and driving and I didn't even bother with it.

    2011 to the present, b/c of Siri the car stereo is mostly off due to texting and driving with that feature. Even walking and texting is now used with Siri, dictation and even iOS 8 voice recording, still my other hand is free.


    Sliding, pushing and shifting a phone to reach the top of the screen is the #1 reason ppl drop & crack their screens.

    Here are a couple of cases I ordered for size comparison.

    Left is iPhone 5S, middle is iPhone 6 (4.7) and right is iPhone 6 (5.5)

    Well, it's only a little while longer before we finally find out just how this phone is going to look in terms of how big it is, etc.

    9.9.2014. It's coming.

    Ya i am currently using LG G3 and that has 5.5 screen but the iPhone 6 (5.5) is about 1.5cm longer than LG G3. G3 fits completely in that case width wise but in length, case is about 1.5cm longer than G3. Its kinda hard to hold. We will see how it pans out. :apple::apple::apple::apple:

    I think people are forgetting or not realising the benefits to one handed operation of a mobile phone.

    I'm often carrying something else such as a briefcase, shopping bags, bottle of beer, keys etc in the less dominant hand so I have one hand spare to use a phone. Having to then stop what I'm doing and put that stuff on the floor just to answer a phone call would be annoying. I see Android users having to do this all the time.

    I never even realised the benefits to one handed operation of a phone until I had an SGS4 as a work phone. First of all I dropped it more often and secondly I used it in different circumstances. I had to stop doing any other task if I was going to be using it.

    I received an iPhone 6 case today for the 4.7 and wow it's big. I've compared the case against other phone dimensions and it is very similar to SGS3. So an iPhone 6 4.7 with SGP Air Shell case is almost identical to SGS 3

    You have to remember, the case is designed to go AROUND the phone, so the phone will actually be a little smaller than the case. I found this when we received the iPhone 5 cases in work just before the handsets; the phone turned out to feel much smaller in the hand than the cases we had to go on them.
