    At my retail job I was ringing up a customer who was playing with an iPhone 6 Plus. The first one I've seen in the wild, and in all its naked glory! I was awestruck. First thing I asked was, "Would you like to pay with Apple Pay?" He chuckled. It looked so damn good, you can't blame anyone for wanting to fondle it. :p

    Yes, rather than have everybody come over to my desk throughout the day asking about it, I just went ahead and took the new phone on a tour around the office this morning, so everybody got their look at it before I even sat down. Now I have it in peace for the rest of the day! I hate to be "that guy" that shoves it in everybody's face, but everybody wants to see it anyway. I also toyed with the idea of just not revealing that I had it, but didn't know how long I could keep that a secret.

    Yeah, I'm a college student and I was at a party and I pulled it out because I had to make a call. You probably knew what happened next. "Oh my god is that the 6 Plus! Oh my god this thing is huge! Wow is that the new iPhone!" etc... etc...... one kid took a picture of it

    I had one lady at work, tell me. "Yeah that camera is nice, but my Samsung has more megapixels." I asked if she knew what megapixels are, she said no lol. She said she she wants the Samsun edge, it has a display on the side!

    Similar things happened to me today. Wow that's the new iPhone? That's huge! Can I hold it? It looks thin... Does it also have the fingerprint sensor? Please show me the new xy... Omg I would buy it too if I could.
    At one point I was playing asphalt 8 and a group of friends gathered around to watch how the new iPhone handles games (yes they did). One of the people around asked "why are you all looking at one phone" and another one (not even me) said "well the screen is big enough, everyone can watch"
    Kinda enjoyed that :eek::p:cool:
    Someone was kidding around and acted like he wanted to hold and drop it. I was just like ok if you drop the $900 phone even though you're just supposed to test it ... Ima sue you :p
