    This is a curiousity question only. (I posted this yesterday, but don't see it now, so, forgive me if this is a repeat).

    I have been reading that a few people purchased BOTH phones, the 6 as well as the 6 Plus and I just wondered why. This is in no way judging people's choices, but, I wondered if they are both smartphones, what would be the reasoning. I'm hearing that a new iPod Touch may be released along with the new iPads this year, so, I guess the next question would be if there was a choice to obtain a Touch instead, would that influence the decision to have two phones?

    Please share your thoughts!

    I do. I own both but is more of a trying it out thing. I really don't know which one I'm keeping and might just keep both and switch the sim around... Idk still haven't decided.

    I'm curious about this as well. I actually considered having both and possibly swapping the SIM card. My reasoning is that I would use the 6 for day to day (gym, errands, etc) and the plus for my travel. I travel a great deal and thought it might be cool to leave the ipad mini at home and just grab the plus for my (sometimes lengthy) trips.

    I'm not overly serious about doing this but have been mulling.

    I picked up both. My work paid for one and I bought the other. I have always had an iPhone and a Note for the past 3 years and switch between them for different needs. The iPhone 6 is my work phone and the 6+ is my home phone. If I had to pick between them it would be the 6+.

    Tried 6+ but it's way too big for me. I'm sure I can get used to handling it, but the pocket-ability is big with me as I normally do not carry a bag nor do I like to put my phone in a bag even when I carry one. I should like to have OIS, but maybe next time. So 6+ goes to my dad who will enjoy reading & watching stuff on a bigger screen.

    This was originally my plan to try both and see which one I liked but I couldn't order a T-Mobile off-contract one without it pushing back to October. I ended up returning my 6 and ordering a 6+. The 6 doesn't really feel all that new to me so wanted to try a phablet sized phone for once :D

    I own both. The 6 is going back. I got the 6 because the pre-order failed for the plus and I already sold my 5s. Found a Plus in a walk in at an Apple store, bought full price, liked our way more than expected. The Plus is great for me since I travel a lot and spend hours stationary on planes and airports. Otherwise I'd have kept the 6-which is a fantastic phone.

    I used to have the 5c (32gb) and the iPod Touch 5 to take on the apps that didn't need wifi for me to save space. Now, I got the Plus 128gb, returned the 5c for bill credit and an deciding what to do with the Touch. Right now, the touch sits on the iHome speaker/charger for radio and ambient noise at bedtime.

    I alternate between the iPad mini and Plus at home (depending on the activity) and my Plus, of course is joined at my hip outside the home.

    I own the Plus and my wife owns the 6. They are both great phones for sure but the Plus is exactly what I (personally) had been looking for. It's a brand new experience that makes my iPhone usage exciting and fun again.

    The battery is a BEAST that is hard to kill when calibrating the software. Couldn't be happier with the Plus. Haven't enjoyed an iPhone this much since I got the original in 2007.

    I've got both. I had decided before launch that the 6 was perfect for me, but that little nagging "what if" in my head talked me into ordering a 6+ also. I'd just return whichever one I decided against.

    I had the 6 for almost a week before the 6+ arrived (Thanks AT&T....) and loved everything about it. I'd already decided that I was right all along and that I'd cancel the 6+ order since it was taking too long to come anyway. So I cancelled the order, but was apparently too late. AT&T sent me an email saying the cancel failed, then followed up with a tracking number.

    So when the new 6+ arrived, I opened it up and played with it for a few minutes. It was big. For sure. But overall, I wasn't overly impressed and put it back in the box. However, the next day, for the sake of proper testing. I swapped the SIM cards out, and decided to carry the 6+ for at least a day before deciding for sure. I got accustomed to the size very quickly and, now I'm mostly sold on the 6+. Mostly. It is a large device, and I'm wondering if I'll come across a scenario where it's a burden.

    I've still got a couple days to make up my mind. But if today was decision day, I'd be choosing the 6+.

    My wife has a gold 6 and it looks very elegant. I personally prefer the black front because I like to see just the screen without any other distractions and love the sleek look but hey, gold or gray, it's still a plus and I'm sure you'll enjoy either one. I can't put mine down!. Good luck :)

    As a lot of people here, I ordered both the 6 and the 6+. Played around with 6+ for one day, that was enough for me to decide to keep the 6+

    Two bought both to compare. Torn between which iPhone to keep.

    Screen and Battery aregreat on 6+ but the 6 has great portability and camera is almost on par between both (except low light shots).

    Glad you're happy with your 6+. My wife ended up taking back her 6 today and exchanged it for the 6+. She couldn't take looking at me watching videos on my screen lol.
