    So had a 5 and decided to see if the 6 was worth it, well it is and what a great phone. Battery life kicks the pants off of my 5S and the screen is great, the little bit larger screen from 4 to 4.7 makes a huge difference, also love the size of the phone. I bought one of the Apple slip covers and it fits so nice.

    I got the 64GB thinking I would need the 128, but got everything on here and have plenty of space for all my photos.

    Who else thinks the 6 is an awesome phone, so far I have no complaints, just figured I would make this post since there seems to be a lot of people with issues, complaints or just hating on the 6, love mine and plan on keeping it until when the 7 or whatever it is called comes out. I especially love how sleek and thin it is, however will keep it in this $35 case just to be safe. Thinking of getting a life proof for camping, and have used those cases in the past with good fortune :)

    Enjoy your phones people

    I love mine too (space gray 64GB also) even though I'm on my 5th one and it's still far from perfect! 1st phone had dark screen uniformity blotches in the center. 2nd had FaceTime camera and dark upper right corner. 3rd had very yellow bottom left quad and dark upper right quad screen. 4th had FaceTime crescent and a color temp shift that went from yellow to cool blue left to right. 5th and current has FaceTime crescent issue too right out of the brand new box week 51 but the screen uniformity is the best I've seen and no yellow. One minor dark fingerprint size dark spot in the middle right but it's liveable.

    The overall quality of the 6 isn't as good as previous phones since I've had to return/exchange 4 times and I still didn't get a real good one but I still like the phone! Nothing is perfect I guess! I'll send it in (again!) at the end of warranty to fix the camera though. Hopefully they will figure out what's causing it or the workers at the plant have rested up and are installing them properly by then! :)

    One thing I forgot to mention is how ridiculously easy it is to scratch the screen too! Within the first 4 days I developed 2 pretty big hairline scratches. One goes right in the middle of the screen. After a couple of weeks I've noticed many many hairline scratches like 50! It took me two years to accumulate this many scratches on my i5! So I recommend a screen protector! I'm rocking my screen naked cause I like the feel and I will probably get a new one at the end of warranty! I have the apple black leather case. Love the feel. Otherwise it's too slippery naked.

    not sure but mine seems perfect both technically and cosmetically, and I do not need a screen protector, never did, all my phones are kept perfect and no marks even after a year of use with just a slip cover, never scratched a screen but this time around since I am planning on keeping it for 2 years, I bought Apple Care+ so I am covered for a mishap and warranty for 2 years, just in case because this is pretty thin.

    As for the screen I think it is one of their better ones, does not show fingerprints nearly as much as the 4-5S did or the 3GS and 3G, but time will tell.

    I just got mine recently too.. the gold in 64GB and I love it too. I know the 6+ is way better when it comes to battery life and such, but the size of it is so big, especially me having small hands and being a girl I like something small and the 6 is perfect for me.

    I just purchased a factory unlocked 6 in space gray this past weekend. I had the white/silver model, but I ultimately grew tired of it, so I gave it to my mom who is on my AT&T plan. There is just something about the space gray that really attacted me to it. Plus, it being factory unlocked is an added bonus.
