Why do some of you need to justify your purchase by bashing others?

    I keep seeing it here regarding the 6 and 6 plus. Why do you 6 users need to keep saying the 6 plus is to big? It maybe to big for you but not for others. And this is coming from someone who ordered a six. And why do the 6 plus users need to say how much better bartery life they have or a better screen. Why do you need to justify their purchase. Almost every thread has people bashing one or the other. Do some of you not realize everyone's cup of tea is different?

    Some people take this stuff a little too seriously...

    Try going to a tech site that's not just Apple users...

    The 6 vs 6+ arguing here is nothing compared to the iPhone vs Android fighting. Some people are just very insecure about their phone and need validation, apparently.

    I see this cross-bashing among on Android forums quite frequently ("My Samsung beats your HTC," etc.). It'll be a shame if that starts happening here as well.

    I am growing very weary of seeing exactly what the OP mentions. People need to take a chill pill.

    Sadly it has. There both amazing phones. We should be happy we have the choice to choose.

    Sad isn't it. Both 6 and 6+ are great Apple phones.

    I can understand comments from Samsung users poking fun at Apple for having 'dated' specs and all that, but the 6 v 6+ stuff is a new level of childishness.

    Yeah I don't understand it. I was torn between the two, very similar phones, but ultimately thought the 6 Plus would be too big in my pocket. It's obviously a slightly "better" phone but that doesn't mean I made a wrong or bad choice getting the 6. To each his own. No justification needed really.

    exactly. Both great phones. I personally chose the 6+ as I want the larger screen. A friend of mine chose the 4.7 for the opposite reason. I don't believe for a second that I should be feeling superior for having a larger screen.

    Some people just feel the need to justify all their purchases though. It's sad that people feel they have to put others down due to a personal choice.

    The people who couldn't get a 6+ are upset and trying to bash people because of it. They're jealous. Glad I got my 6+ order in :)

    And here's the first one. Maybe people are happy with a smaller phone then the 6 plus? Shocking right?

    I cannot tell if you're being facetious or not.

    I agree. These "your model of the iPhone 6 sucks" threads are silly. They're both great devices. We already get enough Android hater trolls on this board. Let's not start bashing each other for which model we decided to get. Just absurd.

    It's human nature. People feel this need to validate their choices and often times do it by connecting with people who made similar choices and being negative about people who made a different choice.

    If you look on other forums of these types (golf clubs, watches, cars) etc, you see them same behavior.
