    For so long I've been waiting for the bigger screen because my eyes get strained from small screen. I finally got the 6+ yesterday and got the Otter Commuter case until I can find (researching on Internet) a case that's protective and sleeker. I want a rubbery grip and it's not easy to find. I'm missing being able to use with one hand. I don't carry a purse, and as a dog walker either keep phone in pants/jacket pocket, but 6+ is so heavy.
    Has anyone else returned the 6+ for 6, and if so are you happier with it ? Can u use 6 with one hand ?

    Didn't own a 6 plus. I used to own a IPhone 5 but turn in to Samsung note 3. Had a same though when using the note 3, big screen are nice but not easy to carry around. Especially after put in with case. So I end up went back to IP6. Love the size and bigger size screen.

    I immediately got the 6 plus to begin with. I don't walk around using it with one hand anyways ever for any iPhone I've had, but I love the size.

    I tried the 6+ and 6 out at the AT&T store. The 6+ is way too big for me, even with my big hands. I'm very happy with the 6. I had a 5 before and looking at my wife's 5, it is really too small.

    @ Missygal & MoneyMaker: since 6 came out I've been reading here on the forum ppls experience to get an idea of what to expect, and what Size I may get. I got the 6+ for size + I notice MORE ppl going from 6 to 6+ on the forum here.
    When I've held my friends 6+ I fell in love, but now that I have it, it's just so huge, and worse, it's really heavy !!
    I'm so confused.

    @ everythingapple: YES !! When I look at the 5 now it just seems so small ! I'm gonna look at the 6 and hold it, and see how it feels.
    I would like the 6+ if it wasn't so heavy !!! If I could find a protective case that is lightweight then I would consider keeping this phone !!

    I have a couple cases for my Plus and the Speck Candyshell Grip, in my opinion, doesn't make the phone feel heavier. I'm really glad i traded!

    I love my iPhone 6 Plus. I don't know how I survived for so long with such a small screen. It took me until the final hour before the store opened on launch day to decide on the 6 Plus over the 6. I'm glad I chose the 6 Plus. The GOLDEN 6 Plus. Anything else would have been a huge mistake.

    I would get the 6 plus instead if I'm living in city like NYC or Chicago that most ppl ride in public transportation. Sure that be something I look at. Just how much time spend on the ride from point A to B, watch movie, books, articles will be nice with that big screen. Also most ppl living big city have a message bag or some sort to carry their belonging. That solve the problem to carry around such big device there. Just IMO to share.

    I know how you feel. I was sitting there on preorder night thinking, "Well, I only really use about 25-30GB of data on my iPhones," so of course i selected the 128GB Plus. :D

    Now that I have been using my 6 for a few months I can easily see myself moving to a 6 Plus on my next upgrade. I was skeptical at first, but the thought of the 6 Plus is starting to grow on me.

    And Alex, once you use that size, it is hard to go back. I've had my Plus for 6 weeks now and tried a smaller device a few days ago. I simply couldn't do it...

    I must confess that I'm starting to get envious of the people that have a 6+ as my initial thought on launch day was that the phone was just too big. Now that I see people with a 6+, it is actually not that bad. I'm thinking when the 7 comes out and it is available in a plus size and regular size, that I will be opting for the plus this time.
