If the phone is not a comfortable fit in my hand, I won't purchase it. That is the problem I'm having with the 6 Plus. It would be uncomfortable to hold one-handed and is a stretch for the hand.
I felt the same way at first. I vowed I would only buy the iPhone 6. I changed my mind when I thought about how I use my iPhones. I use mine more as a computing device. I rarely use it as a phone or messaging. Everyone will feel differently. I do feel the ideal size for me would have been 5 inches.

Sometimes I look at my 6 Plus and say wow, that sucker is huge. But once use to it, it isn't that bad with handling. It really is nice on the eyes with reading and typing.
I've been telling people that (and on this forum) for two years. You get used to the size really quick and usage/productivity goes through the roof.

I saw a white screen in store and did not like it. I like the continuity of black bezel and screen.

I agree, I wish they would have left it on the top.
they had no choice they had to copy samsung otherwise you would all still be using 4" scree

Mine is going back. Just like the 4.7 better. Its not that the plus is too big just bigger than it needs to be. 4.7 and iPad mini for me

Yeah, I'm glad I cancelled my Plus order and got the 6 on launch at Best Buy. I went into the Apple Store today to get Applecare for the phone and I handled the Plus and it is to big to be my daily phone. I travel every week to New York for work and a phone that big isn't for me. I use my iPad Air for movies on the plane and the size of the 6 is perfect for me.

It also depends what you will be doing in the phone. If you're watching a lot of movies, it's better in black.

I got a regular 4.7" iPhone 6. I would have preferred a smaller screen because I can see it perfectly fine on all of the old iPhones, but I have to have the newest one. I'm finding that my hand is getting sore with single-handed usage because of the increased size. Talk about first world problems! Hehe. As a result, I'm using both hands frequently where I would have only used one in the past. The increased screen size is cool for videos; it's just internet and app usage that I'm finding a bit awkward. I'll probably get more accustomed to it with time.

I have a Galaxy S4 and it's almost uncomfortable to text on because of the size. My IP5 is just about perfect for one hand operation. I haven't ordered either of the sixes yet but I'm leaning towards the straight six. The plus is too much like having a iPad in my opinion. For purposes other than a phone, I'm sure the plus is a nice device. I think people look pretty strange holding a phablet to their ear. I will probably have a similar issue to Europa when I do finally upgrade.

You say that now but believe me, if it were still at the top, you would absolutely hate it. The first EVO had it up there and it was brutal. Too big
