Anyone nervous the phone might be too big? Thinking of canceling and getting the 4.7" earlier? Are we crazy for buying a mini iPad mini and trying to hold it to our heads to use as a phone?

Seriously? You haven't even used it yet.

Worse case you use it for a week and exchange it at the Apple Store for a 6.

iPhone plus is in higher demand anyway. It will be EASY to trade it to someone who wasn't able to get one and pocket a hundred bucks or so.

Not nervous at all. Sounds like the 4.7" may be in a little better supply, so if I dislike the 5.5", I'll just swap it for the 4.7".

The height is the only thing that concerns me -- it's thinner and more narrow than most 5"+ handsets I've had, but that height...yeesh.

That said, I think it may be more pocketable with those dimensions over, say, the last Note 3 I had, so we'll see. Can't make a judgment call until I get it in my hands and use it for a couple days. I suspect it'll all be fine.

Your crazy to think its an "iPad Mini and trying to hold it to our heads to use as a phone"

Relax, it's not that big

Ended up getting the 64 but thinking 16 would've been just fine (and saving $100)

I would think buyers remorse will begin once you have it in hand, i.e., seeing what your money actually bought may produce a sense of remorse.

Not me! I went to BB and played with phones of different sizes. So, I'm confident the 6 Plus is right for me. It's the reason i finally decided to spend money on an updated smartphone. (I've been using an outdated LG on Tracfone.)

Until now, I've carried my iPad with me whenever I thought I'd need data away from home. The 6 Plus is small by comparison. :cool:

The only thing I sort of regret is dropping over 5 bones on a phone + case haha.

Nope. Printed out a template that someone posted on here and decided BEFORE I ordered that I wasn't going to put an iPad up to my head to make a call (more that I wasn't going to try to jam 5.5" in my already crowded jeans)

So no remorse here. I'll rock the 4.7" for a year or two until there's no small option any longer then I'll jump to the bigger when forced.

I keep seeing people compare it to a tablet and I don't get why. It's not even close to the size of a tablet, not even the iPad Mini.

If you do that, do they give you a brand new 6 in exchange, or a used one since the one you are returning is used?

It is not as big as you think.. did you do a cut out. I mean I am a tall dude so maybe it is different for me.. but a note 3 is easy to use for myself and a iphone 6+ will be great.

Agreed, Justin. I got the same Spigen case for the 6+ that I also have for my Note3 and it came in the mail yesterday. It felt surprisingly usable despite being noticeably taller. Being narrower than the Note3 is definitely a plus more than being taller is a minus, imo.

Not me. I had so much trouble ordering it on my tiny 5s screen that I long for a screen I can see, no matter if I'm half asleep or not. :)

Exactly! I don't know why some people are comparing the 6 Plus to an iPad mini.



----------------

For those who preordered a 6 Plus, you have no reason to feel remorse, I mean you still haven't received it yet. I am not trying to justify a purchase I made here as I did not order an iPhone 6 Plus but I'm just trying to be reasonable here. However, I have tried a Note 3 and it has the exact same dimensions as the 6 Plus, you guys have nothing to worry about.
