    just a few things i noticed that my 6+ is better compared to my 5s. these are real life observation not just specs.

    cooler and brighter screen
    louder speaker
    touchID so much more sensitive and responsive
    better battery

    As a guy, I can appreciate some nice curves. :cool:

    The 6 Plus curves make it more comfortable to hold than the sharper edges of the 5s.

    now in essence yes, but i never had a problem with my 5/5s box feel. i miss the chamferred edge but i love the curved design of the 6. it looks so sleek.

    The curved edges are sexy as hell!

    Tbh the raised camera hasn't even been all that noticeable

    exactly me too.. it doesnt bother me just one bit. even the raised camera has pristine details.. check the camera ring.. it's body colored to match. my space gray has a space gray camera ring and its pretty sexy to look at. remind me of a chamferred edge :)

    Noticed that on the display model while I was picking mine up! Makes it look sexy and uniformed!

    Can I ask, do you use your ipad for work or just home?

    I'm not sure whether to get a 6+ and not bother having an ipad, or to update my ipad 2 when the new one comes out and keep my 5s.

    better vibrate, way louder
    better speakers

    ----------

    this really depends on what you use the devices for primarily.

    i myself is an iphone guy.. so i get the best iphone as a priority and then buys ipad as a complimentary device. the 6+ definitely blurs the line for buying an iPad Mini 3, i'm debating myself.

    My ipad has been sat gathering dust recently but only because my 5s is so much faster. It pains me to use the ipad even with the bigger screen when I know the 5s will get everything done much more quickly.

    That said, for work I could use a device for making contemporaneous notes of police interviews and court hearings rather than handwriting them. I have a Bluetooth keyboard.

    I also prefer lounging around with a tablet at home than using my desktop pc, I simply don't bother with the ipad 2 as it's so slow these days.

    One size doesn't fit all, just because you like the larger iPhone doesn't mean everyone is going to like it or need one. Granted its more popular but there are plenty of people who choose not to have a larger phone.

    The iphons 6 Plus takes a bit to get use to being a larger foot print and yes one handed use is not that easy but can be done, I have been using my 6 Plus since I picked it up and last night I checked out my Iohone 5S to see what apps I needed to download that I missed, wow what a differance not sure as could go back to a 4" screen

    Definitely love the curved edges. Much easier to hold. I've held the 5 and the 5S before (never owned those) and it hurts my hand when holding them.

    Love the curved edges too but I wouldn't say 5/5s hurts your hand.
