    As for me, I find using it easier portrait and pretty much use it 90% of the time. I actually find the email app in landscape mode cluttered for some reason. Am I missing something here?

    Portrait 95% of the time. I hate the way the keyboard takes up the majority of the screen in landscape (same for all phones and tablets).

    Absolutely depends on what I'm doing with it.

    Portrait most of the time and landscape sometimes. Probably 80/20%.

    Portrait for the vast majority of the time. Landscape usually only to watch videos.

    Landscape all the way. I love the landscape mode so much on the plus I find myself dying to do the same on the 6, then realise it's not there #. I use my phone to death in work and out, and landscaping with 2 hands is much more comfortable for long usage sessions. Although I'll say this; using the keyboard in portrait on the plus is an epic experience. No more hitting the wrong keys on the edge of the screen because of big thumbs!

    Always portrait, except for obvious things like wide-screen videos and games...

    Portrait for some things, Landscape for others. Horses for courses.

    Portrait. Landscape is for videos and some pics. That's it.

    Mostly portrait since most apps have yet to add a landscape mode to support the 6 Plus.

    I would love to use landscape more, but many websites offer a mobile version that doesn't work well in landscape mode. There are also many apps that only work in portrait mode, so I guess most of the time I use my iPhone in portrait mode and when watching videos and pictures in landscape. Also in Safari, for websites that work better in landscape, I use it.

    To be honest, I feel that landscape mode on iPhone 6 Plus turned out to be somewhat of a joke.

    Only 3/4 of the stock apps even work in landscape.

    The keyboard in landscape is weak.

    The music player still has that worthless cover flow crap.

    Hell, even the lockscreen won't go landscape.

    The homescreen looks cool in landscape, but that's about it.

    Both. When In landscape I find myself wishing there was a way the caseless phone could balance on its edge by itself.
