    I wonder if there will be massive amounts of people returning the 6+ for a 6 after the first week of receiving it.

    There goes an abundant amount of refurbished 6+'s.

    I predict a massive amount of iPhone 6 returns once they get to handle the 6+ and get screen envy. They'll be rushing to upgrade to a 6+ and there won't be stock. Then they'll come to MacRumors and complain about the injustice of it all.

    Yes, I predict this.

    Apple doesn't really sell iPhone refurbs in the US officially, though.

    True, but I think there was some talk about apple selling refurbs on ebay under a different account not officially as Apple though.

    It never crossed my mind, but I couldn't imagine anyone being able to buy a refurbished iPhone 6+ under MSRP, unless their's had issues.

    Agree, I am so looking forward to read people's experience with the 6+ the first week. I predict massive returns, with the 6 being the preferred choice. We shall see.

    Given the ebay store doesn't even have 5c or 5s, I doubt it. The returns will most likely be used as warranty replacement after refurbishment.

    Size and portability, the ability to carry it in a pant pocket and not in-hand.

    Stooooooop this the "6+" stuff. It's 6 Plus. This drives me insane how lazy people are. You're literally saving a half a second. Type it correctly. :eek:

    There will also be lots of returned 6's when people see how amazing the 6 Plus is and when they realize the guts of the Plus make it the flagship iPhone. ;)

    I COMPLETELY understand that many people simply don't want a device that large, BUT they need to concede the flagship iPhone (as far as tech and options) is the 6 Plus. It's simply a bit better.

    This coming from someone who typed 5S instead of 5s in his signature?

    Watch the forums on the 19th and 20th. The whining will be legendary. Legendary.

    No, once every 1 starts using it, they will wonder why they tolerated tiny iphone screens for so long. Smaller smart phones is a thing of the past.

    That's if the forums aren't brought down by the extreme load. I was getting tons of 503 errors on the 12th.

    If Apple fans didnt use their phones so much i would maybe consider the argument but a bigger screen will make it easier for them to use their phones so my guess is no.

    It won't be easier to use one-handed, especially if you have to carry something else in your other hand (while shopping, at the airport, etc.).

    If anything, some people will return it due to impracticality of the size especially if they didn't anticipate it.
