    I literally don't get it. whats the big deal? buy whichever one suites you. what is there to get so worked up about?

    ever since the two phones were announced its split the iPhone base - and turned some of them against one another - and its just seems so bizarre.

    seriously, whats to hate?

    I think at least from what I've read that people are not angry that Apple finally made a 5.5" device just that it's too big.

    If you compare the iPhone 6 Plus with its 5.5" screen against other phablets even ones with 5.7" displays they are smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus is.

    Apple made the bezels and the top and bottom "chins" of the phone too large. I mean seriously you can get 5.2", 5.5" and 5.7" Android phones that take up less physical space than the iPhone 6 Plus.

    And have you looked at those side bezels? They are pretty big in my opinion.

    The top and bottom are big to keep inline with the other devices.

    Everyone has a choice of what to buy!

    Choice is good!

    So? They look ugly and make the phone larger than it needs to be. Apple is so swept up with making the phone thinner they are forgetting that the bezels are what make the phone look ugly. The 5 and 5S were thin enough.

    What do you mean "So?". You want them to do what you say? Leave it to the experts or go elsewhere.

    Also, the 5 and 5S still has the top and bottom the same.

    I haven't noticed any anger towards apple making a larger phone.

    I have noticed those people prefer the larger phones refusing to acknowledge that others might prefer a smaller phone.

    I'm not angry that Apple made bigger phones. I'm angry that they didn't make a small one.

    Not current gen.

    Indeed, but some get upset when others choose differently to them. Like it's disrespectfully invalidating their choice.

    Thin-skinned I guess.

    Not angry they made a big phone. Disappointed they made a big phone so poorly. It reeks of Junior Achievement quality.

    There is literally a size for everyone. I don't get it either.

    The 5s is not a present gen phone, it is disingenuous to show it.

    Because they are stupid. There is a choice of two phones to pick from so it's a non issue. Some people on these forums are so irrational and obtuse. They think their opinion is also everybody else's. Just look at the threads on storage.

    I totally agree, people think that their opinion should be what goes. When in reality, apple is making a new product so we all don't get bored of all the usual devices. They are just pushing ahead into the future where new and cellular devices will come.

    I used the 6 for a few hours before realising it just wasn't for me. Gave it back the next day and bought a 5S instead. The 6 was just too uncomfortable to use.

    What's the point of a bigger screen if it compromises usability? Try reaching your thumb into the top left corner of the screen (as you frequently have to on iOS), it just doesn't work without readjusting your grip and making it easy to slip out of your grasp.

    The very fact that you need a feature called "Reachability" says it all. It's practically admitting the screen is too big for conventional use! Such an inelegant solution and Apple would never have offered such big phones if they didn't feel the need to catch up to Samsung.

    As I said, I don't see understand the fascination with a huge screen in your pocket if you can't use it comfortably. I think the 5S is the perfect phone and am thrilled with it. This "which smartphone has the biggest screen!!11" pi55ing competition has ruined the iPhone line IMO.

    What is wrong with the 5S or the 5c. Isn't it great that there is choice?

    So yes the six has got an a8 wow big deal. I don't notice any speed difference in my six plus versus my less than 12 months old 5s.

    I don't get the anger either. Plenty of choice, the range expanded not reduced. It is all good.

    Leave it to the experts, right. The experts who make a phone that bends in your pocket, the experts who had to give people free cases because just holding it made you lose signal :rolleyes:

    Apple aren't infallible.

    Sorry but there are very few 4" Smartphones on the market anymore. I know there are people who want them but there are few choices if any.

    The screen isn't what compromises the usability. It's the top/bottom bezels that are the problem.

    I know that. That's why I wrote my response to you saying that everyone has a choice. People who need current generation compact smartphones have no choice really :(

    No one said they aren't infalliable, but they are still the experts. Samsung and HTC too. More expert than you. Move on and make your own phone if you don't like it.
