    Like a lot of you guys.. I tried to pre-order the 6 Plus on 9/12 at midnight PST but website issues prevented me so I waited in line at my local Verizon (we don't have an Apple store). I bought the only black 6 Plus they had and my local news interviewed me.

    Ignore the fact I was in pajamas and a RadioShack shirt.. It was a long night and I had to go straight to work after (I brought pants to change into at work)

    It's awesome. I switched to Android back when the iPhone 5 came out.. IOS 7/8 plus the big screen has finally enticed me enough to switch back. It's awesome. I already had an iPad Air and an iMac so the continuity features are really nice.

    It was just hard to go from Android devices back to a 4" screen.

    And and that time is was not cold? Only a shirt all night?

    Great that your local news took video of you now in some years you could show that video to all your friends, and future family members.

    Record that video in your hard drive because after some time they delete that videos from websites.

    Enjoy your iphone 6+ one good app is zen garden to test ios 8 and the iphone 6+

    Ha ha, I like it how the reporter says "Big iPhone or giant iPhone" :D

    I have played with both, 6 Plus does seem big at first I guess but you get used to it. iPhone 6? No way it seems big!

    I will get the iP6 myself, and sell the GS5 on eBay. If I didn't have the iPad air I would have gone for the 6+

    Apparently this guy has never seen most other phones on the market for the last couple years.

    I agree with IKE, download that video for yourself.

    All the people at the front of the line were really nice. Most of them had the iPhone 5. They were all playing with my Galaxy S5 so get a feel for 1080p/bigger screens. :p

    Just sold my S5 on Swappa though. 6+ is where it's at. ;)

    Also, I'm not at home but can I download that video from OS X Safari?

    Via some third party website maybe and u may be able to with one of those video download apps for your iPhone. Use to be an Automator script to DL videos but can't find the link.
