Yeah, so maybe the 6+ would've been better

    Just fingered one in the Apple Store and I gotta say it's not the monstrosity we've all made it out to be. There. I admitted it. Still love my 6 though.

    6+ is a beautiful device. I was one-handing it within 2 days. I did switch back to a 6 personally, but the plus is definitely not the monster it's made out to be.

    Curious, did it seem to enjoy the fingering?

    The thinness definitely makes it look way less bulky compared to, say, the Note (despite being taller). It's personally too cumbersome for me to use on a daily basis, but I quite enjoy seeing the 6+ in the wild.

    I have the 6 plus for a personal phone and just got he standard 6 for a work phone. After using it all week, I much prefer the smaller phone over the larger one. The big one is nice, it's just not as manageable. Either way, I'm keeping the plus for this year, and when I upgrade next year will make the decision whether to switch back or not.

    The plus isn't as bad as some people made it seem like it would be, but it's just not as manageable of a phone as the standard 6 IMO.

    I have a good buddy with one. And I thought the same thing after playing with his. It wasn't quite as bad as I would have thought.

    However I said the same thing about the Note, and it wasn't too bad at first. After a month I was done with it, and my problem with that is it was too taller (shorter then the 6+). Despite how much I want one I know I'd just end up repeating the past and selling it a couple months down the road.

    I actually just went from 6 to a 6 Plus and am really enjoying the bigger screen and definitely the increased battery life. Don't get me wrong I loved my 6, but I enjoying the Plus more.

    I actually like the smoothness of my wife's 6 better. Here is to hoping that gets ironed out some more (8.1 was a good step in the right direction but not a complete fix for me).

    The size keeps me around though.

    That's a concern I've had but I went with my gut and ordered the 6+.

    Since getting my 6+ on launch day, it's become quite normal for me.

    The newness to the size shock has worn off and I only ever realize how big it really is when a friend with a 5 or 4 series has their phone in view.

    Well, I did use a Samsung 4s next to my iPhone 5s for several months last year, so I was used to a slightly bigger screen.

    Don't get me wrong, the shock has worn off, but I LOVE the extra real estate.

    So let me get this straight. You pull out your 6+ and measure it against your buddies 4 and 5? Do they get jealous over your size?

    Maybe not to you. But for many people it is. Imo id rather have a note 4 or nexus 6 if I wanted a huge phone.
