    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?

    I bought the 6 and purchased at Apple.com only because I wanted an easier return process than with Verizon (and no restocking fee with Apple). My only thought was the slight chance that I may somehow think I want a giant phone. I have held both now and I believe I'll stick with the 6, but before I did that, I was still sitting on the fence. I hate large phones so I'm not sure why I was on the fence except that someone gave me a choice and I simply had issues making it. :)

    Yup. In fact, I posted on CL seeing if anyone wanted to trade their 64gb iP6P for a 128gb iP6. But then again, I'll probably get the 5.5 and want the 4.7 again. I'm hard to satisfy.

    I'm planning on exchanging my 6 for the plus.
    I'm waiting till next Thursday to return the 6 if I can't seem to get one in store.

    If I can't find one then I'm just gonna use my 5 till the pluses are available.

    I'd like to size up from the 6 but I figure the 6+ is going to be impossible to find in stock before the 14 day return window is up.

    Yep, I'm going from 6 to 6+. Friend at work got a + and it's not nearly as ridiculous as I imagined.

    I ordered one from Apple.com a few days ago, which is of course on back order, and am planning to keep checking locally to see if I can snag one and cancel the online order.

    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.

    It's funny - my wife has the 6 Plus and even the Starbucks people are like, "that phone is huge" when she uses her phone to pay for her order!

    I just returned mine yesterday for a 6 plus at the store, just gotta wait a month and fork out the 35 restocking fee.

    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.

    Not really sure if it's considered great but since coming from a battery-drain-champion Note 3 I'm in heaven.

    Which store is this? The Apple Store doesn't have restocking fees

    AT&T, I didn't know about the restocking fees until after I bought it, no biggie. next time I'll order through Apple though.
