    I am surprised that the 6+ sold out instead of the 6. This despite the higher price and iphone users claiming that other phones were too big for years.

    I wanted to go with the iPhone 6 BUT i wanted to see what all the fuss is over big phones since i never had a big phone before so ended up getting the 6+

    If i don't like it i plan on returning it and getting the 6.

    They also have more limited quantities of the 6 Plus

    There's no way to know how much stock they have of each model. Doesn't necessarily mean that more people bought the Plus.

    I've personally been longing for the day Apple released a 5+ inch phone. I jumped on that sucker as fast as I could. Can't say I'm surprised most people landed on that choice either, most people buying into Apple opt for the top-of-the-line so to speak.

    It's a better value for an extra hundred. More real estate and a better battery with more camera options. Plus, a lot of people who jumped off of Apple likely jumped right back when they released a phablet model. I think this iPhone Plus might get Apple back to the top spot in the smartphone market.

    I think the 6 Plus is going to be more popular that many thought. However, I also think early adopters (we losers who are waiting to pounce at 12:01 am) are more likely to be "power users" or tech nerds, and frankly males, who will be more likely to buy the bigger screen than the general public.

    I'm going to guess that in the end, once the mass public buys in, the 6+ will be something like 25%-30% of iPhone 6 sales. I'm also going to guess early sales of the gold color will be very low, but grow later, again, as the general public starts buying (but it will still be by far the least popular color).

    If the 6 had the same features as the 6+ I'm sure the 6 would have been the most popular. I'm only getting the 6+ for that reason.

    I also think Apple purposely produced less 6 Plus' so it's mostly to do with that.

    Its very likely that the 6 will still actually be the most popular… the iPhone+ is probably just available in more limited quantities.

    Bigger screen + bigger battery life, this is what everyone was asking for!

    I, however, bought a 6. I am almost certain the 6+ doesn't fit comfortably in the front pocket of my jeans as a Note 3 already doesn't.

    =D Hey, my work pants, khakis, suits, they're all tailored fit and slim, the 6+ would definitely fit there. But my jeans though, pockets are too small.

    a lot of ppl that ordered are also former android users. So that could explain it.

    How do you know the PLUS stock wasn't more limited. Sounds like you are making assumptions to me.

    All of the complainers of the "4.6" is too large of a phone" bought the 6+ because they think its the "Elite" model !

    Apple LOVES you guys!

    Hey, I don't have an issue with it.

    If everyone is getting the 6+, that's a better chance for me to get the 16GB 6 later when I go to Verizon today!

    I will be replacing my 4 after 4 years of service as Apple have now ended support for it so I may get a plus on that contract as well as a 6 as my main phone so I am covering both bases then.

    It is possible they simply had less 6 Plus phones to sell. I wanted one but settled for two of the regualr 6 units. Just do not want to carry that "honker" all day!:p

    The note 3 fits in all my jeans: diesel, levis, Armani, CK, Sean John, Ralph Lauren etc. Unless you are a woman the 6+ should fit.

    ----------

    That's what I think too. They went for the higher specs, which to me are very insignificant.

    I wanted the 6+ but I wear Khaki tailored pants and the iPhone+ was just too large to carry around without constantly taking it out of my pocket all the time. I tested it out with a cardboard cutout of the 6+ and it was almost sticking out of my pocket.

    When I got off of the phone with Verizon to order my 2 6's, he said the 6+'s were already showing Oct 14 shipping where my 6's confirmed for Sept 19.

    I wonder how many non-iPhone users decided to go with the 6+.

    I personally am torn about getting a bigger iPhone, I love the size of the 5 but with Verizon offering me $250 for my Iphone 5, I decided why not. But i'm going with the 6, not 6+.
