I know there's lots of threads on people returning the 6+ for a 6, but what about the other way around? After handled the 6 and 6+ for a few days.. I really like the 6+ and I'm thinking of exchanging my 6 to a 6+.. Anyone in the same boat?
Count me in. I returned my 6 and placed an order for a 6+. So it's back to the old 5 until the plus arrives in 3-4 weeks or whenever.
I think the 6 was without a doubt a noticeable upgrade from the 5. But while it is a nice improvement, the 6+ promises to be a radical difference. So I figured why not go whole hog.
And I really want the plus's battery life. I wasn't even seeing a slight improvement in the 6 compared to my 5. I know I was using it more and all that. But my feeling is if it was supposed to be a little better, and coupled with the age of my 5's battery, I should have seen more breathing room at the end of the day. I didn't.
The 6+ does look ridiculously gigantic. So besides needing to get used to handling a new form factor I'll need to learn to stop caring if people are or aren't thinking I look like an idiot talking on the phone on this thing.
Finally made it to the Apple Store today to swap out my 6 but all they had was gold colored ones. While they look much better in person, the white front is too distracting for me.
I will say though that they still have people lining up for the new phones. I'm speechless.
I've been considering returning my 6 for the 6 Plus.
The battery on the 6 is rubbish. I'm constantly living in darkness (brightness below 25%), otherwise I'm a 4 hour usage.
My 5S was on auto-brightness and I was getting 4-5 hours. And that was usually around 50% brightness or higher, because my desk is right next to a window.
The size of the 6 Plus is putting me off, and the potential of it being a bit slower than the 6.
The other option is returning the 6 and sticking with my 5S until the 6S.
All I wanted was a better battery.
So far I've had excellent battery with the 6. Woke up at 7am, unplugged, went to state fair (and made a time lapse video out of the dart rail window on the way) and took about 45 pics. Got home and was still sitting at 55%. Love it.
I'm sticking with my 6. The plus is really nice, but memories of having a Note 3 that I barely used to its potential after the break-in period turned me away. I'm at that point in my life that I just want an awesome, perfectly normal sized phone, and the 6 exceeds that in every way.
What "Usage" time was that?
Settings app- General- Usage- Battery Usage-
I got less than 4 hours of actual usage out of my phone today, on wifi, playing 2 games mostly. Kinda expect more than that.
