    The iphone 6 plus is out of stock everywhere and it doesn't seem like that is going to change anytime soon. I'm considering getting and ipad air 2 and a iphone 6 instead of just an iphone 6 plus. Its only marginally more expensive.

    Am I really missing out on the portability by doing this? Has anyone done this and regretted it? Thanks

    Be patient and get what you really want. Regret will haunt you otherwise...

    I enjoy the portability of the 6. Also the iPad is a great device. It's a lot more enjoyable to read on than the plus.

    One thing that is very noticeable is that if you have a lot of tabs open they will continually refresh on the plus. This doesn't really seem to happen on iPad.

    That is the thing. I'm not sure I really want the plus. I've used 6 and 7 inch tablets before and always found them lacking in comparison to their bigger counterparts. However, if it was a phone I might see me using a 5.5 inch screen simple out of convenience.

    I guess this is the type of thing only I can answer. I was just wondering if other people who have thought this in the past come to realize the benefits.

    Agreed. You'll be happy in the short term, but regret it long term.

    I just got my phone a couple weeks back. I kept telling myself that it really didn't matter when I got it. Don't get the wrong. The waiting sucked. But now that it's over, I was right and it really didn't matter much in the long run. Had I gotten it a week earlier or later, it wouldn't make a lick of difference at this point in time. I did consider other options, but at the end of the day, I'm glad I showed some patience and ended up with what I wanted. Now I have what I want for the next 2 years and won't spend that time kicking myself for now having more patience.
