    No it's not. Battery isn't that much better, too big to carry, slight lag compared to 6. $100 more. Again too big to carry. :D

    I predict this thread will be full of unbiased and level-headed discussion.

    There isn't much advantages coming from the 6 except better for one-handed use which isn't really common anymore and cheaper price.

    In almost every area, 6+ trumps it. You pay more for the 6+ but you get more. After awhile or by say 2020 went many phones have reached 5.5" to 6", people will look back at the 4.7 iPhone 6 and think how compact it is and how the iPhone 5s look like a baby's iPhone next to the Shaq Daddy of iPhones with the Plus series. Some still haven't got used to or accepted carrying a large. But remember when 4.7" was gigantic in 2011? By 2013-2014, it became normal.

    Level 1 - 4"
    Level 2 - 5"
    Level 3 - 6"

    Some are still stuck in white belt, Level 1. The small size while slowly transitioning to Level 2. Most are ready to tackle the big boys. 5.5"+ will be standard by 2018 like 4.5"+ is now. Just a matter of time. Thank goodness everyone including Apple followed Samsung's lead with the Note or we would all be stuck using 3.5-4 inch screens forever. Technology is not supposed to stay stagnant.

    People who don't need constant validation about their choice in phone realize that there are trade offs with each one.

    Yes, the iPhone 6+ is a much better phone for me than the iPhone 6 but that doesn't mean the same has to be true for everyone else.

    Well it's great that we care today what people will think of our phones five years from now, when now will be five years in the past!

    Anyway both phones are good depending on your needs, personally I think the 6+ looks like a clown phone and is far too unwieldy for me.

    Having had both, the 6 plus battery is light-years better

    I'm thinking the plus is better because with the regular 6 we deal with the FaceTime camera being obstructed whereas I haven't heard of that on the plus.

    I should sell the 6 and get the plus for that reason.

    They will get the same amount of updates.

    Hopefully the iOS9 rumours are true, and they will be optimising performance, rather than cramming in as many features as possible, which should fix the performance issues the iPhone 6+ has.

    I have had both. I see no lag difference and the 6+ has dramatically better battery.

    I would end the day with 15-25% left on the iPhone 6
    I would end the day with 65% left on the iPhone 6+

    My usage is/was the same on both.


    Yep exactly.

    I bought both just for fun. I kept both because I have specific use cases for each. That said if I was forced to choose it'd be the 6 Plus without hesitation.

    I saw this 6 as a stepping stone. I had the 5s then got the 6 and it took a little time to get use to the size (which is perfect) the 6 plus just seemed huge and then after a while I started liking my friends 6 plus so I got one and now the 6 feels like my 5s did.

    I love my 6+ though do get lag at times, I think this comes down to what apps you have downloaded etc.

    For some people the 6+ is just too large.

    Pros/Cons of owning the 6/+

    It is different for everybody and I see pro's and con's for each device. For me the 6 trumps the 6 Plus in the size department and that is a major influence in my buying decision. The Plus has pro's too but when I thought about it, for me, these were not compelling enough when the size of the device was considered.

    I used a Note 3 for over a year --- had people bashing me left and right for having a PHABLET. It took me about 2 weeks to get used to the size - now I can never go back. I can't even type on a 4s or a 5(5s) because it's too tiny. I use my phone easily 10x as much as I did back when I had a 4s and a 5 - because the larger screen is so much more pleasant to use. I read books on my phone - I do most of my news consumption on my phone. With my 6+ this has continued even more so.

    Those complaining about size. My wife is 5'1. She's tiny - so are her hands. Took her less than a week to adapt to the 6+ from her 5 and she loves it and she won't ever go back. And yes, she too uses her phone easily 2-3x more than her 5.

    I don't think it's really the size - when I had my 4s and my 5 - I never thought I'd get a massive Note 3 - even thought the idea was dumb (I had an iPad back then - now I don't).

    My 6'3 friend with hands bigger than mine is keeping his 4s because he can't stand how big phones are getting. I imagine once he used one for a week he wouldn't ever go back. To each his own. I know he barely uses his phone other than for a few texts/calls. I'm on my phone a good percentage of the day - it's replaced my iPad, my laptop for reading/news/books/majority of communication I do. I still use my Chromebook for data entry/research/heavy communication.

    Even before they were released, I saw no clear advantage with iPhone 6 over 6 Plus other than it is smaller, easier to hold one-handed/to carry and you can get it cheaper.

    Every battery test out there, 6 Plus always scores higher. And maybe when you got your 6 around launch day, battery life was fantastic. BRAND NEW, of course it will be longer. After six months, all of it degrades and I see more people complaining about the 6 battery now than the 6+.

    The OIS found on the 6+ is a negligible advantage over 6. The clear advantage is that 5.5" screen. It is true FULL HD with 76 more ppi. No oddball 750p resolution. I didn't think 76 more ppi would make a difference in sharpness but it does esp in text. Add the fact the keyboard is roomier in portrait mode using the 6+ and you can't resize them larger like you can do on Android. And the most common usage usually deals with the display like typing on a keyboard, browsing web, reading, watching videos, gaming, etc.

    For two years, already been there and done that with the 4.7" screen from the M7. It took me awhile to handle the M7 size coming from iPhone 4/Nexus One. After some prep work of nearly two years, need to upgrade to something that can truly enhance the experience instead of sticking to the 4.7-5.2 range for that overrated one-handed use/pocket-friendly advantage. Transitional phase wil be much shorter going from 5" to 5.5".

    In 2007, 3.5" was big.
    In 2011, 4.7" was big.
    In 2017, 5.5" will be viewed as "normal" like how some might view 4.7" currently today.

    When you first see an iPhone 6 next to iPhone 6 Plus, your first thoughts is how BIG the 6 Plus is. After using 6 Plus for awhile, you compare them both and start thinking how SMALL the 6 is. Reversed reactions. That's usually the case once you adjust to their sizes.
