    I commend Apple for overcoming their fear and finally giving buyers a choice.

    Does the Plus come with a purse to carry it around in?

    i'm having the same problem... i kinda want the plus but i printed out the phones shapes and the plus is just freakin huge! i don`t think i could fit that in most of my pockets and i don't feel like i wouldn`t be able to text one-handed... so i guess i'm just gonna go with the 6

    I think the extra features with the 5.5 may win me over. It's not THAT big right :eek:

    Ugh... I've gone through all 3 scenarios (6+, 6, and keeping 5s) in my head over and over. As soon as I think I've finally overcome any mental objections and have made a decision then the other two options start to look tempting :confused:

    First world problems indeed :(

    I'm having trouble deciding between both as well. I love my iPad Air and have no desire to replace it. I just wish the 6 had the same resolution as the 6+. The camera features are not as big a deal for me. I'm just not sure if the phablet version is too big.

    Do you cary your iPad mini with you all the time without it feeling inconvenient? If you do then replace it with the 5.5".

    I think this strategy was risky for Apple, and I applaud them for going with it. It might result in large sales for the 5.5".

    However the risk lies in the fact that there would be many like me, who are considering not upgrading from a 5 or 5S, because:

    a) the 5.5" has the features I want, but is too big

    b) next to the 5.5", the 4.7" doesn't seem like much of an upgrade, considering the price ($1000 AUD+)

    If the 4.7 had the features of the 5.5, it would be a no-brainer.

    Get the 6+. If you end up thinking it is too big, you can easily sell it and pick up the 6. There will be all sorts of people who buy the 6 and secretly to not so secretly wish they had bought the 6+.

    I can't decide either. I've drawn it out and it seems huge, but I would like the extra battery life

    I was originally planning to ditch my HTC One M8 for the 4.7" iPhone 6 but, having seen the specs, I'd be downgrading the screen resolution and battery. However, the 5.5" looks HUGE! Decisions decisions...

    My only concern with the iPhone 6+ is exercising with it. I had a note 2/3 for a bit and running was definitely awkward. I've since downgraded to a Moto X and while I love the size of it, I'm still torn. :(

    Exact same - and if the watch requires the iPhone, who would want to exercise with that thing??

    I can't decide. I had the Note 2 at one point, and just got tired of how big it was. I just don't know if I can get use to something bigger. The features are the only thing I want the Plus for
