    Just got my case today for the 6+ and I'm second guessing myself. I'm not used to these larger phones and it seems awkward. (Thumb only reaches about 2/3 up)

    Wondering if adjusting to this awkward size (for me anyway) is worth the extras that come with the Plus.

    Anyone debating the same?

    It's worth every single millimeter. You'll enjoy more PPI and longer battery life.

    It's worth it for me! I want the bigger screen, better battery life and better camera...which means iPhone 6 plus is the way to go.

    As did I. I have the apple black leather one and it's pretty big for me to use. Definitely a two handed phone. At least for me. The wife thought it was big. Might use her 4.7 for a few days before I make a decision.

    You have two weeks to trial. Worst case, you exchange it, get back $100 and live happily ever after.

    For me, I'm starting big and if I have to downscale then I will but at least I will have made an informed decision. I think it will be easier to start from the larger model than the other way around.

    Also the 6 Plus doesn't get as hot as the 6 claims Engadget :)

    Give it a month. If you don't like it then, you can sell it!

    Really seems that it is more of a 2-handed phone, negative for me. Maybe I will just carry around the case (empty, lol) all day tomorrow and see.

    Ok, I agree on that :) just wonder about the handling of it. Guess I will get used to it.

    I did have (for a very short time) the Galaxy S5, and couldn't stand it. But not really from the size, hated the OS

    Based on the Cnet review that I just read. It's worth it if you're willing to sacrifice portability.

    What's more important to you? Quick, one-handed use in a pinch? Or a bigger screen and battery life?

    That's the choice you have to make. Don't let people tell you one is better than the other. They are the exact same phone. The benchmarks on cnet.com prove that.

    iOS on the 6+ is going to be awesome. I love my iPad Air. The 6+ will be my pocket Air...

    I have a galaxy s4, it is awkward but just slightly past the border of awkward and not awkward. I think 6 will be perfect.

    Exact same phone? I don't see how anyone could say that.

    When I use my 6+ at work it's going to be fun trying to hide it when my manager comes around rofl

    Look at the ****ing benchmarks. They are within 100 points of each other.

    Why you being a grump about this? Dang!

    I don't care about benchmarks. Exact same phone? False. Different features does not equal exact same phone genius.

    Yes, but the iPhone 6+ is faster. It's clocked faster. You want to say its not THAT much faster? Ok. It's still faster. :p

    If you prefer a larger screen, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Your the one using the phone, not the reviewers or anyone else here.

    He is one of a few reviewers that Apple gives devices to ahead of the release so they can test them out and have reviews ready in time for the official launch of the phone. There are more reviews here...
