    I realize you can't really go wrong with either, but I'm still having trouble deciding.

    The only thing that worries me about the iPhone 6 is its battery life, which Apple claims is only equal to or better than the iPhone 5s. I got terrible battery life with both my iPhone 5 and 5s so this is an area of concern. I am generally in areas with poor signal coverage, but even when I'm not, I can still only manage 4 - 5 hours of usage. Maybe both batteries were just bad, maybe something with my iCloud account was corrupt or there was some other unresolved issue, I don't know, but that was the reality I had.

    Clearly the iPhone 6 Plus is the superior model (better battery, better screen, better camera, added landscape functionality, etc), but that all comes at the expense of easier portability and one-handed usability. The Disneyland review over at TechCrunch (http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/17/life-is-tough/)really swayed me towards the iPhone 6 Plus, but I'm still not sure.

    I mainly just want a bigger screen. I would use an iPad mini as my phone if it had cellular. I could care less what people think or what I would look like holding it up to my ear. Use the earphones if this is such a problem. Add to the fact that it's got better resolution and features that the iPhone 6 doesn't have.. no brainer.

    I hate having both an iPhone and an iPad, so Plus for me.

    6 Plus, because the big size counters my physical inadequacies.

    6 plus because I use my iPhone for pretty much everything but a phone. I watch a lot of videos, read a lot and the big screen is the biggest deal about it. The 1080p and ois is nice too.

    6 because the plus is literally as big as my face.

    Plus. The iPhone 6 is too small for me. I'm upgrading from a Razr.

    Was planning to get the iPad mini but held off due to the new iPhone 6+ but will be coming in next month for me #


    That is one nice upgrade.

    iPhone 6+ because if I wanted to try it and if I'm not happy with it, I think it would be easier to exchange it for a 6 due to low supplies of 6+

    I chose 6+ because I wanted a bigger screen. I have used a bigger screen before and it was tough going back to my Iphone 5 after it. Iphone 6 doesn't seem like it would have worth for me to buy from an Iphone 5, but 6+? definitely.

    I think he's talking about the Droid RAZR, not the flip-phone lol. (nice upgrade either way though :D)

    iPhone 6 Plus because I enjoy owning the flagship device and not the equivalent to the iPhone 5c.

    6 because it provides what I need and desire. Thought about the Plus, but I think the 6 fits my personal needs better. I'm glad they did two sizes though, choice is a good thing!

    I picked the flagship iPhone 6 because I just purchased the mini with retina. Also, I had an s4 last year and it was a little too large for my female hands.

    6, 16GB Space Gray.

    -Fewer moving parts (no optical image stabilization)
    -Don't want a tablet, less so a phablet
    -Small enough to fit in tighter pockets

    My biggest gripe upgrading from a 4S is having to get a larger screen. I really prefer the smaller size of the 4S but it's over 2 years old now and struggling to run newer games.
