I held both the iPhone 6 and Plus prior to purchase (I was the first in line)... and wow the Plus was just too big for my taste. i'm loving the iPhone 6
Happy to hear it . I pre-ordered the 6+, so I look forward to seeing how much I like the size. My case came in a few days ago so I was able to see that it fits perfectly in my pocket which was my biggest fear. For what I do though, I feel the real estate of the 6+ will be beneficial for me.
I am loving the six... But part if me wishes I had a 6 plus. I just think I won't be able to use it one handed. The six is just perfect that way and I keep my phone in my pocket and it is great that way. Ugh! Decisions!!
The 6 plus looks really good next to the 6. Its weird how if you stand at a distance, it looks like the 6 plus isn't really that big compared to the 6. The closer you get however, the bigger you realize it actually is.
The one handed usability factor helped made it an easy decision for me.
The OIS is keeping me torn between the two. If the smaller 6 had it, it'd be a no brainer for me. Now I have to weigh portability vs OIS vs waiting till next year.
I'm just glad there is an option of sizes now and not just one unit.
I feel like, for me, right now in 2014 and for the foreseeable future... 4.7 inch is the 'sweet spot'.
That was actually the biggest factor for me too.... until I saw this review (scroll down to see comparison photos taken with both the 6 and the 6+ in low light conditions):
and used both phones at the Apple store for picture taking. The image quality is practically indistinguishable, even in low light. The electronic OIS is not bad at all.
I think 5.0 inches is, as long as it is in the 4.7 chassis with less bezel.
