Simple question, but I am curious if you are using the standard or zoomed version of the home screen?

Definitely Zoomed on my 6. I think it makes better use of the added real estate.

Yeah, definitely. I went back to standard, and it's just not right at all for the phone.

Why get a bigger phone if what you look at is not bigger. And I must add that I cannot imagine having anything bigger than the 6. I almost miss the size of the 5/5S. In some ways its more personal.

Most definitely, the screen and what's on it needs to somewhat match the size of the phone.

I'll mainly use standard so I can get more content on the screen, but early in the morning when my eyes are still adjusting, I'll use display zoom to enlarge text slightly.

in general, I prefer standard, but I've been considering going to zoomed for an enlarged landscape keyboard. the standard landscape keyboard's additional keys are messing me up. BUT I should probably stick with it since it'll be better in the long run.

I had it on Zoomed and now switched to Standard and everything of mine fits on one screen, lol. Think I like it.

Standard for sure. I can't stand large text. I have a few apps that are zoomed in and showing large text because they haven't been updated yet and it's a bit annoying.

Standard. Although I don't need reading glasses yet so I'm sure when that happens it might change (we'll probably be on the iPhone 10 by that point).

I have it on standard right now, but I do use larger dynamic text in those apps that support it. Still playing around with the setup.

Standard definitely for me. The zoom is too big and besides I like being able to put more apps on each page.

Standard on the 6 plus. Besides the fact the zoomed looks just big enough to bother me, the rotate on landscape doesn't work on the homescreen and panes doesn't work on zoom.
