    There are a lot of really great changes. The curved design feels fantastic, the screen size upgrades are great, the cameras have some awesome feature like slo-mo and OIS on plus, pretty great battery life, and Apple Pay sounds promising.

    What phone did you upgrade from?
    What phone did you get?
    Most importantly, what's your favorite new feature?

    I upgraded from the 5 to the 6 plus. I was a little intimidated by the size (ahem...that's what she said), but I am absolutely loving it. Honestly my favorite feature is the expanded landscape interface and ability. Being able to see home icons and navigate menus in landscape mode makes the 6 plus feels like a new experience. I hope Apple and devs expand upon this functionality.

    Your turn!

    I upgraded from iPhone 5s to the iPhone 6.

    I personally never cared for the design of the 5/5s. However the design of the 6/6+ is fantastic.

    I couldn't decide between the 6 or the 6+. However when I went on launch day to get the phone I tried them both out and chose the iPhone 6...

    That said I'd say my favorite feature of the iPhone 6 is the bigger screen... It's bigger but not too much bigger

    You forgot another great feature, the way the new iPhone curves away from the apples of your cheeks. :D

    Yea i upgraded from the 5. Touch Id works surprisingly well! I hope more developers get on board with using it for username and passwords.

    Upgraded to iPhone 6+ from the iPhone 4. Every time I pick up my 4 now it just feels like a toy and I wonder why I ever went out in public with it lol. Love the Touch ID and just the speed in general. My 4 was starting to become an antique with how slow it was.

    I suck, because I pre-ordered from T-Mobile!
    I upgraded from the 5 to the 6+, as well. I like that I can take a better picture with the camera easier, because it seems to take less effort to come out with a good picture. Also, I like the size of the screen, it makes for better web surfing.

    Honestly, the only true improvements are the screen size and the battery life. These two features are very significant. On the flip side, the 6 is definitely harder to operate with one hand. The 5 was a stretch and the 6 is downright cumbersome for one-handed use. I guess this is the trade-off for a bigger screen, so I'll accept it. Comfortable one-handed use really ended when the 4" screen was introduced on the 5. The coolest feature is definitely the 240 fps slo-mo video.

    From 5s to 6 plus.
    Most important is the screen size upgrade.

    I upgraded from the 5S and got the 64GB space gray 6+. Favorite feature? Definitely the new camera enhancements and that big beautiful display.

    Upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S4

    Got the iPhone 6 Plus

    I love TouchID, the battery life, how fluid it is compared to my S4 and how I don't have to reformat the phone every couple months to get it to stop lagging and being a slow piece of ******.

    I upgraded from the 5 to the 6. I was not sure I wanted a bigger screen, but since using it I really like the 4.7 screen. the touch ID is great to.

    I completely agree.

    I came from the S4 as well and it caused me nothing but problems.

    Got the 6, and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Loving Touch ID. I think it's my favorite feature. Also like not having to plug my phone up in the middle of the day.

    5 to 6+

    Touch ID rocks!
    Screen Contrast is MUCH better. Looks more vibrant with deeper blacks.
    Curved glass looks better and also makes it stand out more
    Large screen is great for Facebook and photos and web browsing

    As for the battery, I like my brightness turned all the way up (or close to it) so am not getting longer than 6 or so hours of usage. Not sure if that is right or not.

    Went from a 5s to a 6+. First and foremost I love having 128gb. That was HUGE to me as I was always at capacity on 64gb phones. I now have 48gb free.

    I love the size, I use Saleforce a lot for work and do not take my iPad out nearly as much as I used to.

    I love the instant focus on the camera. This phone has eliminated my point & shoot altogether.

    At this point I'd usually be at around 20% or less on battery, it's nice to be over 50% and not even worrying a little.

    100% satisfied with this purchase. They checked every box off that I wanted in the perfect iPhone for me.

    Upgraded from 5s.

    My favorite is the larger screen by far, but the faster LTE and is a close second (granted I did switch to T-mobile this time around so that could be half or more of it).

    When I went from 4s to 5s I was floored by the difference in size and function. This time the performance jump is much smaller, but the overall experience is just as exciting.
