    So I made another one of my dumb little videos.


    It's been "almost" two weeks since I opened up my iPhone 6 Plus box.
    My first thought was, WOW is that BIG, did I just make a HUGE mistake?
    My friends have the iPhone 6 and it's a great size. Well I immediately DROPPED it, hey, it's BIG and slippery, so I got a case. NOW it's even BIGGER!!!...
    After just a few days, I was completely LOVING the larger iPhone. The size was great, you got used to it in your pocket (jeans, shorts, dockers, etc). It's been no different for me, except for a larger phone!! And no, of course it hasn't bent any in two weeks of real life use!! It's you're really bored check out my video, it's pretty much what I just typed above!

    Currently on my 4th day of ownership. Thought I'd return it for sure. Actually, I only bought it off of recommendations of several friends who own bigger phones, all swearing that I would get used to this huge size.

    Turns out I completely agree with your post. I think it's a keeper! Although I'm not accustomed to the larger size when I hold it, everything else about it is just too wonderful :). I actually love both of the new iPhones. But I agree with those who say once you go with the bigger screen it's really difficult to go back. I may be one of the people who sell their iPads too. I'm waiting until this "Honeymoon" phase is over first, but I can tell you that I like typing on the Plus much more than on my iPad, so it's actually better for production (the main logic for purchasing my iPad).

    I think this is a nice little device (iPad-Micro) for an ultra-portable computer that plays very well with my MBP which I hook up to a Cinema Display in my office. I have always felt like the iPad Air, while a very nice product, was a bit of a force fit between my phone and macbook. I am beginning to believe I can now skip that step not because I really need to, but because it's simply more efficient. I always have it with me!

    Like you, I have also demonstrated the uncanny ability of keeping mine as straight and rigid as any iPhone before it! It's almost as if the bend gate stories were merely a lot of hype ;>.

    It does however feel like it could fall out of my back pocket more easily than previous phones. I always carry AppleCare though, which helps me feel a little more secure about that.

    I agree. When I first opened the phone, I felt I was going to return it within a few days. Loved the larger screen and increased battery, but it was so big. After using the plus since Apple released it, there is no way I would return it for the smaller version. This phone is fantastic.

    Opposite for me loved it in the beginging, 2 weeks in, really annoyed with lag and glitches and fear of sitting on it :)

    I think the downscaling gimps it.

    Battery life is excellent though.

    It's an Incipio DualPro SHINE
    OK, I got it from my AT&T store, but to be honest there was very very little to choose from at the time. After I dropped my phone on the first day, I said I'm getting a case RIGHT NOW! So I had to get what I could find. BUT this case turns out to be pretty nice!

    Your case is similar to my Ballistic slim case... Protects the phone without encasing it in a block of rubber.

    Had mine 10 days... Didn't even consider the 6. 100% satisfied.
