    I have a 6 and think I want the 6+. But, I'm reading posts where people got the 6+ and want the 6 instead. I'm stuck with a quandary.

    I use my 6 all the time. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, but figured if I got the 6+, I'd use it more like a tablet. What do you think?

    I think if I were in your boat and really wanted the 5.5" screen, I'd just hold out for two more months and continue using the 6 for now and then turn the 6 into AT&T (and pay the difference since you didn't get the 12-month upgrade plan) and get a 6s Plus with the Next plan that allows upgrading every year.

    I agree. I told a buyer that I'll sell in two months, if he can wait. If not, oh well.

    There will be other buyers. But if you go that route, you are defeating the purpose of Next. The nice thing about it is how you can upgrade without the hassle and risk involved in private sales.

    I started with a 6 and thought I would never like a 6 Plus. After a couple of months with the 6 I moved to a 6 Plus and never looked back. The 6 Plus doesn't even seem that large anymore.

    I had the 6 and just broke mine for the 3rd time yesterday so AC+ was no longer useful. I was hoping I could make it until September. I decided to get the Plus now. I doubt the S will be life changing so the 6 Plus will have to do until the 7 comes out. Had the Plus for a day and it is so much easier to type on for me. I can't believe I ever use a 5.

    You broke your phone 3 times in less than a year?

    It wouldn't be that hard to do if it was caseless and they weren't super careful.

    Got the 6+ and it does take some getting used to but I don't think I could ever go back to a smaller phone now.

    You have a manbeard now. You can handle it.

    Yes. I ran with a Tech 21 case. They can handle small drops. The screen on the iPhone 6 is very fragile. I put a speck case and tempered glass on the Plus. I should have gone with the Plus in the beginning. Fits my hands perfectly. Screen is better and much easier for me to type. Wish I would have made it to the S model, but this one will be great until the 7.

    I have the tech 21 case as well and the tempered glass. Seems to be working so far

    Definitely the tempered glass is what I should have done with the Tech 21.

    I will never go back to a smaller phone. The 6 Plus is a great phone and since I got it with 64gb instead of 16 it's a huge upgrade for me. So much easier to hold for typing with two hands.

    I was using a 5s and changed to a 6plus a few months ago. I tried using the 5s again a few days ago and couldn't imagine ever using that phone. What a difference!

    Only obvious issue is its a little more cumbersome to carry around. I forget about that once I start using it though.

    Hell, I'm cumbersome to carry around.
