    I have been reading a lot of peoples reaction that the iPhone 6plus is big, but what about the iPhone 6? Has anyone reacted like "oh its to small, should have gotten the 6plus"?

    I have preordered the iPhone 6, it was tuff choice. Been really difficult to choose. I have the Note 3 and the iPhone 5, and I kind of feel that even though I love the size of the screen on the note 3, the phone itself is to big. I get my iPhone 6 on friday, I figure I could still change my mind...

    I have the 6 Plus and it's just the perfect size. I went to the apple store to play with the iPhone 6 for a bit and it was still too small in my eyes.

    Some people could say that the iphone 6 is too big.

    I think it is the right size you will like it a lot.

    You can put it in your front pocket without issues.

    Well for me it's a perfect size. But I always wanted the 6 from the very beginning as I was ok with the 4" screen. Now that I have the 6 I don't think I could go back to the 4" but I also held a 6 plus when I was in the Apple store and while it's not quite as big as I originally thought, it's still a bit big for my taste.

    Depends on what device you are coming from...

    I upgraded to the 6 from an iPhone 5. I was actually worried that the 6 would not be big enough. My wife received the 6+ and while I thought it was awesome, it just wasn't practical for ME to carry everyday.

    When I recieved my iPhone 6, I was pleasantly surprised at the size increase over the 5. I feel the 6 is an almost perfect size. Now if they came out with a 6+ that had smaller bezels, and it was only slightly larger than the 6, I would be all over that. If you are looking for something smaller than the Note, I think you might be pleasantly surprised by the size compared to a 5.

    Go to a store and try one out.

    Anyone downgrade from a 5 inch or more to the 6?

    I think this too big too small opinion is based on what you had prior

    I was using a iphone 4 2 years ago(3.5") I wanted to try samsung so I went for the Galaxy S3 and I have been using that the last 2 years.

    at first I was thinking wow this is a big screen but I dont feel that way at all anymore it quickly became normal size

    so point is the 4.7" iphone 6 will not look "big" if you have been using a 4.7" phone for a few years already, just like if you were coming from the note or another 5.5" phone the plus would not look "big" and the 4.7" phone will now look "small"

    I don't think the 6 is too small. It's perfect for many people.

    To each his own.. that answer will vary widely. Only you can judge for yourself.

    I personally love the 6. I would be happy with the 6+ too, but I am very happy with my 6.

    Love the 6, it's perfect size. This is coming from a 5s user.

    its not the perfect size for me but I'm getting used to it. I would have preferred 4.3 or 4.5 because the six is just a smidge too big for one handed comfortable use. But my hand is adjusting. I find my pinkie is having the most trouble adjusting because it is doing more balancing. And in forms where there is no autocorrect ( passwords) I am making the same typos often. Still, having looked at my old 5s (gave it to my bf) - the bigger screen is outweighing the learning curve. Love this display !

    I have big hands and here's an idea of the size diff in big hands. I didn't hate the 6 plus and it would take getting used to if I were to get it. They should of put optical image stabilization on both phones.

    I have got the 6 plus and I am actually thinking about swapping for the 6. It's so hard to use when walking around. My hands actually hurt from using this phone. Miss one handed texting
