    I bought both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus together. Tried out the 6 Plus for a few days, then the iPhone 6 for a few full days in real-world use and alternated between the 2 for two weeks.

    I ended up going for the 6 Plus and don't regret it at all. In fact, the more I use it, the more I end up feeling happy I went with the 6 Plus, even though I was undecided as to which one I should keep over the whole of the 2-week period. Even I was peeved off with myself being so undecided as to which one I should keep. I used the iPhone 6 right up till the last hour before I returned it to the Apple store.

    The iPhone 6 just didn't feel like much of an upgrade from my 5S apart from the slightly larger screen.

    I think the slipperiness of the iPhone 6 Plus when used naked made me feel uncomfortable about keeping the Plus. But now, having got the leather case, it has become much more easier to use and hold, despite my smaller hands. Every time I use and hold my iPhone 6 Plus, I feel like i've made the right decision.

    If you got the 6, you did it wrong. If you got less than 128 GB, you did it wrong again.

    if i didnt mess up and try the samsung s5 for 2 weeks prior to the iphone 6 launch, i would be rocking a silver iphone 6 plus.

    but instead im stuck with a 6, which is what they had left at the store the tuesday following launch day.

    You know, after using a 6 for a few days and coming from a 5s I really don't see all the hype on the 6. It just seems like a little larger 5s since I already had the new IOS8. I just don't see all the hype about the phone. I have a 6+ on order and I see where that may be a different story. Apple sure is good about building the hype to sell new phones. I was at an Apple store last Thursday night and they had plenty of phones but still made you wait in line to get one. I waited in line for an hour with one person in front of me the whole time before leaving without a phone. Got to have that excitement. Then in 11 months we'll start this all over again.

    it's a phone, not your pc at home. the way apple charges for extra storage just doesnt make any sense to me, i will always get the 16gb version. payin almost 1g for a phone is just crazy

    If you look at as a phone, maybe, but I look it as a computer and it's the most used thing I own so definitely worth it.

    Yes, well, my PC at home doesn't cost $1000, either. My laptops are half the price of my iPhones and iPads. :rolleyes:

    Sure but this one is portable and can go with you everywhere. Portability has a price but I get your point :)

    iPhone 6 128GB Space Gray

    I had considered the 6 Plus but determined it to be impractical for use in an active lifestyle (gym, runs, etc.).

    ~60% of consumers prefer the iPhone 6+

    Since the sample size (currently 81 votes) is large enough (n>50), it looks as if we have a statically meaningful picture of consumer preference toward the iPhone 6+. Good job team!

    Got the 6+ because I wanted a bigger screen than the 6 #


    I think the iPhone 6(+) is overpriced but is a good phone and iOS' user friendliness makes it sort of worth it.
