It's whichever one you bought.

Seriously, this arguing and point scoring is a complete embarressment.

"Ha, the iPhone 6 Plus is clocked higher, glad I chose right!"
"HAHA!, the iPhone 6 loads web pages faster, thank god I didn't get the crap 6 Plus!"

The reviews are out (Both iPhones have got amazing reviews), so I come here to discuss them, and all I see if point scoring and insults.

Not sure what some of you are compensating for, but relax, we are all winners here.

Make your choice on the screen size right for you.

Replacing my iPhone 4 with the iPhone 6 after 4 good long years of use.

Going to be so excited when it comes. All the people that say you're going to regret getting the 6 instead of the 6+, nope I'm not.

iPhone 6
-Lighter and thinner
-4.7" Retina HD display
-A8 and M8 chip
-LTE and faster Wi-Fi
-Better cameras
-All features from iOS 6, 7, and 8 that I missed
-Touch ID and Apple Pay

Also I normally would get 32GB for $299 but I got the 64GB for the same price.

But best of all, I get all these features in a device that fits in my pockets and can use with one hand.

It doesn't matter.

If you want a big phone 6+
If you don't 6

There aren't winners and losers here.

Congrats to everyone who finally has a choice on the size of iphone they get, that's cool right?

The 6+ sounded great, the 6 sounded great. I could think of reasons for both, and I could make long lists and do lots of compare and contrast on which ones better for me, but when you spend that much time tearing at the little details between two things, either of them will be a perfectly fine item for you.

Both iPhones are upgrades from any of the previous models. There may be slight differences between the two new ones but mostly it comes down to size preference and BOTH are great options.

Is it Friday yet?! :apple::D

Having preordered the 6 Plus, that's pretty depressing. I suppose it makes sense, as the 6 Plus is a less practical device (won't fit in as many pockets), and has compromises (not as small as a phone, but doesn't have the real estate of a full-size tablet). But at the end of the day, it's about which device is right for the individual user. And I hope I chose correctly.

Why's it depressing as its being doengrade for size? It's their faults for using small 4inch phones for years on end. Having used Notes in the past is say the Plus has the advantage for my needs, so id rate it higher than the 6. Each to there own.

Thats the spirit! For a moment you had me thinking you had clicked the 'cancel' button.

I'm gonna go ahead and agree. Those scores were mostly indicative of the practicality of the size and IOS 8 not being entirely suited to what the Plus could potentially do with it.

I'm sure you have. It seems like it is just because of the size and practicality from the eyes of the reviewer which was why they gave it a lower score.

Based on the responses to your post so far I'd say this board is beyond hope.

I dont know why a reviewer would ding a score over size. That's like saying the 15" macbook pro is a POS b/c it fits in less backpacks than the 13". Kind of absurd. Review the phone and let consumers buy the size that's right for them. I think Apple giving us choice for the first time in forever has thrown these fanboi reviewers for a serious loop.

They feel it functions less then it's suppose to as a phone. Cell phones used to be all about practicality and for some reason that changed. Less practical phone = less score.

Sorry the reviewers couldn't justify your purchase for you .

For me its a bit of a toss up which phone to get,which in my mind means either way is a GREAT choice.Won't hear me cutting down the phone I didn't get,as I could have just as easily ended up with it.
