    Having a very difficult time deciding which iPhone 6 I will order. Does anyone know if any existing smartphone (Samsung, etc.) has a model that is close in size to either the 6 or 6 Plus. Thinking I could go to BB and just look at the phones and compare sizes. I want a bigger iPhone, just not sure I want to go as large as the 6 Plus.

    I need to see some hands on videos before I fully decide. so far it's iPhone 6 right now.

    ....I think I read that somewhere. And that did it for me. at .2" smaller, I can't do it. I have to go 4.7"

    I'll save the $100 for the next BIGGER iPad. I'm a device differentiator!

    Ya, I am in the same boat ... but the optical stabilizer is only in the plus. So ya, I guess that pretty much means I have to go for the plus.

    It may or may not be on the site, I didn't check, but it was specifically noted in the event today. I think there was even a slide.

    The Note 3 is about 1/4 inch shorter, a little wider and deeper, and a tad bit lighter. Pretty close in physical size though.

    As mentioned the Note 3 has a 5.7" screen though so the screen on the 6+ won't be quite as big.

    Break out the scissors

    Here's a PDF mockup for comparing the sizes of the 4.7 and 5.5:

    Download. Print. Cut them out and they should give you a good sense of what each looks like in your own hands.

    One guy took some foam on hand and cut it to the same sizes, stuck these on top and trimmed the phone to the same thickness for a 3D feel.
