    Been playing with the 6 plus and one thing I find awkward is taking selfies which is a big part of my social activity. Not sure if it's the height that makes phone feel less secure or not being able to wrap hand around and get the thumb to press he shutter. Anyone having success taking selfies with the 6 plus? Feel feel to post pics.

    Why not simply hold it from the bottom and let Siri do the work?

    Lol, I didn't know Siri even did that.

    I realized you could use your left hand and left thumb to trigger the shutter with the volume button vs. trying to reach for the digital button which is more awkward.

    I tried and she opened the camera but then I would still have to hit the button to take the pic.

    Ok do you want your cake and eat it too?

    :D Just kidding. I hate selfies with a passion so the furthest I tried was "Siri I want to take a Selfie"

    I like cake I think the best way is to use the self timer so you can make sure you're cute and not awkwardly trying to handle your giant phone. Lol

    But you know, I think this is all a ploy to get people to post their selfies

    I take a lot of "selfies" with myself and my fiancé, when we go out we have no one to take our picture . I think the 6+ is actually a lot easier to take selfies with. On my 5 I would miss the digital button more times than not , and when I tried using the volume button my pics always came out kind of blurry. With the 6+ I use the volume button and it's much easier to hold and I have been getting clear shots

    The 6 Plus is doing you a favor by putting a stop to this fad.

    I'm already used to taking two handed selfies for stability anyway. Won't have my plus till Monday but I can't imagine it'll be too bad.
