wow, the geometry on the 6+ is really bad. it feels much bigger than any other similarly sized phone. Apple needs to; shrink the bezel, go with a wider ratio or lose the button, in this class.

on the other hand the 6 feels very nice all-around. was always a fan of the rounded edges as I never put a box on my phones.

On the other hand, I have no problem with the geometry of the Plus. It feels good in the hand and will suit my needs.

What an idiot having it in your pocket driving then again while sitting at a dinner table, when I drive its door pocket in a case and when I go out to dinner its on the table in its case.
And I agree do the same thing with a 5s and see what happens. Crazy

If you carry your phone in your front pocket you should be able to sit down or do anything else without taking it out. Some people have carried it in their back pocket & sit down & do whatever making it far easier to bend.

I replaced a screen on a 5s and had to bend the phone straight. This girl routinely sat on her phone which was on her back pocket of a rather large boottie lmao. I can see the 6 plus being easier to bend due to its size.

I'm a huge fan of the thin and slimmer design that is with every iPhone since its inception. I also think it was a smart move to relocate the sleep/lock button to the side.

Don't know if I'm a fan of the side button yet, I liked it where it was before especially for screenshots. Time will tell, maybe I just need to get used to it.

This is a much better location on a device this size. It just takes some getting used to. Once you have it down, it will make sense.
