    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.

    Are you sure? Display zoom shows on the 6 exactly what you'd see on a 5 or 5s.

    Not on mine. Standard is the same. Zoomed is larger, at least on App icons.

    That's what I'm saying. Zoomed enlarges content while standard lets you see more on your screen.

    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).

    Standard is fine but it makes the home screen super tiny lol.

    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.

    Apple is working to change that. When they come out with the Apple watch, it will be "our most personal device yet."
