I went from a iPhone 6 to the 6S Plus. Huge weight difference :(
I did the same and I LOVE IT! It's not that much heavier. Small vs Large = a little more weight. I really enjoy these over the top titles. Makes people think you're holding a car. Lol

I waffled between the 6 and 6 Plus last year, and eventually went with the 6 because the Plus was "just too big and heavy". This time around, I decided to go with the Plus - because I really wanted the landscape option and the optical stabilization. After a few hours with it, every time I pick up the 6, it feels like such a toy... No joke. I'm adapting to the Plus more quickly than I believed possible - and I have small hands.

I went from 5 to 6s plus and I am loving it. I really don't mind the weight and size at all. I was sold when I started using it.

How long until you recover? You went from a smaller phone to a larger phone. What were you expecting? Seriously. I'm too embarrassed to even look up the weight difference and post it here for you.:rolleyes:We're talking ounces,right?
I've used a 6+ and didnt find it heavy

I weighed my 6 and my 6s+ on my postage scale just now, both with an Apple silicone case on. The 6 weighed 5.1 oz and the 6s+ was 7.5oz. I knew, obviously, that going to a bigger phone meant it would be heavier, but so far I don't mind it at all, it's not a huge difference to me.

I went from the 6 to the 6S and the heaviness was the first thing I noticed. I like my phones light. This is the heaviest phone I've had in 5 years. I don't like it.

I ordered both after upgrading from the 6 as I was unsure of which one I would of prefer. Hopeful that the 6s plus would be my preferred choice but the weight of it compared to the 6s is just too much so the plus is getting returned immediately. The 6s just feels 'right'.

I have pretty large hands and went from the 6 to the 6s+, knowing very well it would be a larger heavier phone. But this may be bigger and heavier than I'm in for...
