Would you have waited for the 6+ if the 2015 launch rumor was true?

    The rumor going for months was that the 6 Plus was going to come out late (Early 2015). IF that happened then would you have skipped tr iPhone 6 and waited for the 6+?

    Inventory issues seem to be real so I think a lot of people are going to see delays in their 6+ Preorders (including me). So to put things in perspective I'm thinking that at least I'm lucky it wasn't a 2015 release. Sure I have to wait 3wks but it would've been worse if it were a staggered release because I definitely would've got the 4.7" and then felt buyers remorse when the phone I "want" came out 6mo later.

    No, I would have got the 6 and waited to get the Plus for the 6S Plus.

    Yeah, mostly because I'm not seeing a huge difference between my 5c and the iPhone 6. I'm happy with the 5c, and so I would be content in waiting.

    Nah, I'd have had a go at the Samsung Note 4 which is out next month I think. Been eyeing up Samsung phones all year after toying around with a friends Galaxy 5 inch something. Really sweet phone, but I hung in there as long as possible to see if Apple would pull through on the phablet thing.

    Time waits on no one. I would've bought the 4.7" phone if the 5.5 wasn't ready and then gotten the 5.5" phone when it was ready.

    I would have waited. I don't like to buy a phone more often than every two years. Of course that would probably change if Apple did major releases every year.

    I've had my iphone 5 for almost 2 years and just had my sleep button fixed along with a new battery put in. I have it jail broken and it's still fast and does what I need it to do! I see no point in upgrading. I really like to get my bang for my buck! The new screen size doesn't make me too excited. (I have an iPad too.) What I would be excited about it a sapphire screen on the iphone 6s. That will be when I upgrade!!

    I was pretty much ready to pull the trigger on the 4.7 iPhone 6 so I would have just jumped on it and later regretted it later when the 5.5 was out.

    Honestly I would have bought the Note 4 in that case. I've had my launch day Note 2 for 2 years and it is showing its age. There were only 2 phones I wanted to upgrade to, either the note 4 or a larger (5.5" or above) iPhone. I'm very happy Apple was first:D

    No, my iPhone4 is really showing it's age. Actually, I only switched to the 6+ after seeing the announcement and assembling a mock-up.

    No, I can't stand my galaxy. I prefer the plus, but not to the point where I would have waited months for it.

    The way things are going, the 2015 launch may still be right. :p
