    I am going to preorder so I really have no idea how either phone feels, but I am worried that carrying around the iPhone 6 Plus will be like trying to put my iPad mini in my pocket when I go out. Am I right?

    I'm scared about this too. I printed out the template and put it against some cardboard but it's still hard to determine how it will sit in your hand without the proper weight.

    Yeah me too! Having those little extra features on iMessage is a nice touch. The phone looks bigger but nothing like holding an iPad mini.

    1) Go to cell phone carrier store
    2) Hold a Galaxy Note 3 in your hand
    3) Imagine the 6+ to be a little bigger than that

    I completely agree and I'm a gal. 6 plus has OIS better camera, 1080p HD screen and bigger battery.

    ----------

    Is taller and thinner then Galaxy Note.

    Thanks for the vid after watching that I'm not going with the plus, too big. I am going with the gold though that thing looks beautiful.

    Yeah but you have a purse to put it in.

    Barely, don't complicate things so much. The main idea is to get a rough idea of what the iPhone 6+ will feel like in your hand. 1.5mm difference in width won't do much.

    That thing is huge! My biggest concern is it fitting in my pocket.

    When I go to the gym They have little places on the eliptical and treadmill to put your phone, nook, whatever to read, watch videos or whatever. I use my Bluetooth lg 730 wireless headphones.

    Exactly! My wife is getting the 5.5. So she can see better?:confused:

    Most guys have nowhere to put the 5.5 inch Plus. I held the new note and it is massive.

    No I am not going to carry around a man purse. No way.

    It seems they would have tested it in pockets before they released it. So maybe it's not that big. My guy friend is 6"4 has a Galaxy S5 which I think is fatter. It fits in his pockets.

    It's huge. Reminds me of the Android phablets. Which is why I'm going for the 4.7.

    In anticipation of the 5.5 i tried the samsung note 5.7 in my pocket.

    I'm a guy, medium build, and wear dress slacks for work. The 5.7 fit in pocket no problem!

    If I can hold a kindle and my nook simple with one hand which is bigger then I certainly can hold the 6 plus.

    I'm a photographer so in the field will be much nicer viewing photos on the larger 1080 HD screen.

    Just watch people that order the 4.7 will be disappointed after seeing the 5.5 fits and pockets and Apple store will get tons of people wanting to return but the 5.5 will be sold out.

    Standing is okay. Now sit and kneel. Enjoy.

    Look at how small that guys thumbs are. I think the 5.5" one will be fine if you have bigger hands. I printed a paper version of the 5.5" one and it feels fine in my hands.

    I had a 6" LG Flex in my pocket while in my car. No problem. Depends on your pockets, I suppose.

    I agree. The Plus is not too big at all. It still fits in a normal pants pocket, and since my Nexus 7 tablet is easily held in one hand the smaller iPhone 6 Plus is surely an easy fit.

    After seeing that video there's no doubt I'm not going with the Plus. It's too big and frankly... if you're buying the phone to see a photo next to your IMessages or to see a split screen, that's not worth another $100.00.

    It also has optical image stabilization which is so much better in lowlight photos and videos.

    Yeah but it also has a higher res display, better camera, and significantly better battery life...
