Online. I ordered mine on September 19th. Received on October 13. The Gold is stunning and the Plus is worth the price tag. The zoom on the dual camera is a really nice added feature.
I got my 1st+ last year and I will never go back. It was an awkward adjustment for about four days and forgot the hang of it and now I can't live without it.
Same here. I sold my SE and went to the Plus. I'm looking forward to the new portrait mode when it's released. The Plus has so much more to offer. But your correct, there is a learning curve with the 5.5 Plus.
