First off, apologies to my fellow iPhone 6+ owners. I have been a big critic after reading reviews and anecdotes about bending, lag, etc. So I decided to give both models a try. After 5 days of the 6 plus, I can wholeheartedly recommend it over the 6 without hesitation. My old 6 has been returned. One of my biggest concerns was portability and one-handed use. My fears were overblown. I use my 6 plus one handed all day with success. I have it an Apple silicone case which helps with grip but there is little I cannot do one handed and I am average size person. I go to the gym 6 days a week and keep the phone in my shorts. Yes, I notice it but I also noticed the 6 too. So there was little tradeoff. I have not experienced the lag many have mentioned in these forums. While Asphalt was the one game where I did see the occasional stutter, it was very infrequent and I cannot say with certainty that the 6 did not have the same. I experience no lag with regular animations, app switching, moving into landscape, etc. If there is a case others would like for me to test please let me know. I was concerned about bending but after intentionally applying what I think to be more than normal force, nothing happened. Granted I didn't fully flex every muscle to break it, but don't think I need to. I actually had it in my back pocket and forgetfully got into a taxi and sat down. I weight about 170 lbs. I was very nervous when I took it out of pocket but there was not bend whatsoever. Granted I won't try to keep doing that in the future but it's good to know that it didn't fold in half after what I would consider a typical, slightly accidental thing. I mean sitting on a phone just isn't comfortable anyway. We all know the benefits. The larger screen is great. I find myself no longer carrying my iPad for reading and feel more productive when replying to texts, composing emails, etc. I used to hurry to a laptop to do some tasks I now feel comfortable doing on the larger screen phone. While it cannot replace an iPad for all tasks (mainly due to available apps and the even larger screen), it solves 2/3 of what I used to use my iPad for. Battery is ridiculously great. Each day when I plug in my phone at night I still have 60%. So the 2 day on one charge spec is true. tl;dr: if you are on the fence about the 6+ given anything you have read, just buy it. If it's just not for you for other reasons then that's cool too.
