This looks to be pretty accurate compared to my tests with a checkbook (same height as 6 plus). I'm 6'5 so feeling pretty good about my decision for the 6 plus
Check book is perfect to test whether it holds in your hand.
Unfortunately its not the height but the width that will matter. With 3.06 inch you have to expand your thumb to fullest to hold it in one hand and grip it enough not to slip. Because when you grip using fingers, and try to slide with thumb, there is tendency to loose grip when you extend thumb to swipe.
I have ordered 6+ and will see how it holds
I think thumb size would be better than height. I've got short thumbs..
Erm, I wouldn't take this too literally.
I have friends the same height as me that have shorter hands, longer hands, stubby thumbs, long thumbs etc.
Now where's that Penis to iPhone comparison chart where you must have a small penis if you ordered the Plus.
At the risk of repeating an old meme - they're holding it wrong.
If you rest the bottom of the phone on your little finger it shifts your hand up the side giving your thumb reach up and down. I'm 5'8" with smallish hands and I can reach all but the very top left corner on my OnePlus One.
