    I've seen a lot of people complaining about the large size of the 6 Plus, but also some complaints that the 6 is not much of an upgrade from the 5/5s as far as screen size goes. Which leads me to think, would Apple have been better off making 1 new iPhone 6 with a screen size somewhere in between that of the actual 6 and 6 Plus? Maybe a 5" or 5.1" screen?

    If not that, I sort of wish the 6 Plus was maybe 5.4" instead of 5.5". Since the iPhone 6 is 0.7" bigger than the 5s, it would've made sense to make the 6 Plus 0.7" bigger than the 6, which would be 5.4". I know the 0.1 inches isn't a drastic difference, but it would've trimmed the 6 Plus down just enough I think.

    God no. The regular 6 is approaching too big for me. I'm not a huge fan of two-handed phone usage though.

    You have no idea how much I wish it had been this way!

    A 5" or 5.1" iPhone with all the extra features of the 5.5" version would have been perfection for me.

    No. I would've preferred a new model below 4.7", actually. A 5C with the improved camera options would have been perfect.

    I would have like apple to give the same features and battery life to the iPhone 6 that the 6 plus has. I bought the 6 plus mainly for improved battery life. The OIS in camera and landscape modes are cool too. I'm sure the 4.7 screen would still be usable with the iPhone 6 plus features. Wouldve been nice if apple made the 6 the same thickness as the 6 plus to give it somewhat more battery life

    No. I think it is valid to question if the 6 Plus is too big, but I really wouldn't want a phone larger than the current 6. I am appreciating the larger size of the 6, but I really wouldn't anything much larger. I could probably get used to 4.8-5 inches, but I imagine that would

    I have a few friends who are also iPhone-loyalists because there aren't any decent Android phones in a smaller size. The size is definitely an appeal for people.
