The iPhone 6 Plus is just too big

When Apple rolled out the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September, I bought the iPhone 6. I don't regret it. But since then I've been able to spend some time with the iPhone 6 Plus, and I have to admit, I just don't get it. It's just too damn big.

I admit that when I bought my iPhone 6, my hand was forced. I didn't preorder a phone, because at the time the pre-orders started I wasn't sure which one I'd rather have. So on September 19th I found myself standing in line at my local Apple Store with dozens of other diehard fans (and a bunch of Chinese folks sending them back east to make some quick money on the black market).

The manager of the Apple Store I went to walked up and down the line about an hour before the store opened to let us know that they didn't have any more iPhone 6 Plus units for sale; the very limited quantity they'd received had been spoken for by pre-orders and the first few people in line.

My mind had mostly been made up by then to get the 6 anyway: I didn't want to spend the extra money on the Plus, and I thought it might be a bit too big for me.

As it turns out, I was right. Since then, I've been able to spend quality time with the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple provided me with a review unit for a while, and it's been my daily driver.

I'll readily admit there are a few things I like about the bigger iPhone. The iPhone 6 Plus has incredible battery life. I regularly go two days — sometimes longer — between charges. I can't remember ever being able to do that on another iPhone. The battery life on the iPhone 6 Plus is nothing short of stupendous because Apple was able to cram a lot more battery capacity into the larger design. And the iPhone 6 Plus camera, with its optical image stabilization, is spectacular.

I love the dual-pane mode that pops up in some applications when you rotate the phone to a landscape mode. It makes it a lot easier to navigate through e-mail, calendars and other content on the phone, and it just makes sense. I look forward to third-party developers supporting the feature in the future, as well.

During my time with the Plus, I've taken a couple of straw polls from Plus-wielding friends and colleagues, and all of them tell me the same thing: Since they got their larger iPhone, they use their iPad and iPad minis a lot less than they used to.

I can totally understand why: The iPhone 6 Plus really fills the gap there, providing a lot of the functionality of the iPad in an even smaller package than the iPad mini. If you're looking to get rid of another pound of weight in your bag and stop carrying around an extra sync cable or USB charger, the iPhone 6 Plus might be the right device.

But here's what I don't like about the iPhone 6 Plus: The size. It's just too big to fit in my pocket comfortably without feeling it pushing up against the fabric and my leg. I admit that my previous description of the iPhone 6 Plus as "having a skateboard down your trousers" was hyperbole, but there's no question that you're more aware of what's in your pocket than you are when you're carrying an iPhone 6 or previous models.

The iPhone 6 Plus's weight is significantly heavier than an iPhone 6, too. I can't stick it in a jacket pocket without feeling it — it's just a heftier device. To be fair, Apple has done a marvelous job with the iPhone 6 Plus weight distribution: It feels better than a lot of other large-format smartphones on the market, better balanced and more evenly distributed. But it still has that extra heft to it.

But the real dealbreaker for me? I can't work one-handedly with the same sort of dexterity and swiftness as I can on the iPhone 6. Sure, Apple incorporated "Reachability" as a core feature in iOS 8 on the new iPhone models: Double-tapping the Touch ID sensor brings the top row of the screen to within easy reach of your thumb. But with the added weight and size of the iPhone 6 Plus, I can't easily hold it and thumb-type as I'm accustomed to doing on the iPhone 6 along with all the other iPhone models I've had before.

I don't pretend to think my use case is the same as everyone else's. If you have an iPhone 6 Plus and love it, or if you're planning to buy one, good on you. I know Rene loves his. But having had the opportunity to use both, I'm looking forward to returning to my iPhone 6. It'll be less bulk and less weight in my pocket and easier to manage with one hand, and those are the most solid reasons I can think of to want the smaller iPhone.

  • Yeah I think the same.. This is why I went for iPhone 6. Even my note 3 was too big for me and I am big guy.. Very uncomfortable in jeans.. I am am very happy with my choice.. Perfect size, perfect camera, perfect screen, great battery and NO ANDROID! Can't be better :-)))
  • Just curious: what did you dislike about the Note 3? Seems to me the best Android device out there. (At least until the Note 4.)
  • Pretty much everything.. On specs pretty good phone, in real life.. Nothing close even to iPhone 4.. Didn't like buid quality on 1st place, other stuff: camera, S pen was a little buggy, software (I am from the small group that actually like Twz, I like how it looks but damn too much lag and bugs). Note 4 is another story, really cool phone.. Only needs new software. But still prefer iPhone, video camera and picture processing are so much better. I don't care about Mpx I am not making posters from my photos.
  • Thanks. This will help me to make a decision. Cheers!
  • The Note 3 was an insane device. It was not buggy, and certainly the S Pen wasn't buggy. You're, practically, lying to make a point. Whether you like the software is one thing, but it is still a flagship performer and many people even say the Note 3 is more responsive than their S5, with MORE software and an older Build of TW on it... Generally, people just don't agree with what you are saying. Where I do think you have a point is the camera. The Note 3 camera does too much processing, and Samsung should have used a bigger Aperture with a lower resolution so that the camera performed better in low light, and was faster, to both shoot and process images (including shot to shot times and burst shooting) with the ability to turn out better photos with less aggressive (and lengthy) processing. However, outside of Low Light, the phone will often outperform an iPhone due to the amount of detail it can capture, and the camera doesn't do much processing there. It is prone to camera shake, though. The Note 4 fixed this with OIS (which also works in video, so the picture isn't cropped - unlike the iPhone 6 Plus). I don't agree the iPhone has a better video camera than the Note 3. The Note 3's 3 Noise-Cancelling Microphones are on a different plane of existence compared to any iPhone. Sound matters in Video. It also does 4K. It tends to focus better (and faster) in video, as well, compared to iPhones - with better focus tracking. Note 3 doesn't lag. You're spreading FUD. There is only one bug that I encountered on the phone, which is the stock SMS/MMS client turning SMS to MMS when you insert an Emoji into the message. Everything else was flawless. I'm sure you canload it up with crap and make it lag, as you can most devices, but the device generally performs as well as any Snapdragon 800/801 device, which is to say it's very swift. I went from the Note 3 to the iPhone 6+, but I don't have to rag on a device unfairly just to give credence to my decision to replace it with an Apple device. That phone is fine, and anyone looking for flagship performance at a bargain should seriously consider it- especially considering how much a 64GB iPhone 6 Plus (only SKU with acceptable storage, IMO) costs, the (32GB + MicroSD) Note 3 is a virtual steal compared to it for anyone who isn't already tied into a specific ecosystem and isn't religious about platform choice. Build Quality is meh. I cannot see myself carryhing the 6+ without a case. The phone is WAY too slippery and prone to drops and scratches/dents/scuffs from them. The screen is not flush with the bezel so the risk of scratching or cracking it is WAY higher than a Note 3. The phone *is* prone to bending so it's nice to have a thin but hard/sturdy case to make sure that doesn't happen i.e. if you fall asleep and roll over onto it and don't wake up for hours afterwards. I feel like a Screen Protector is mandatory on this phone... MP matter for cropping. Often times with a huge resolution you can *not care* about how you frame a photo when you take it, because you can frame it after the fact through cropping. It matters to people who actually want properly framed photos to share, but don't want to waste a ton of time trying to do it at the time they take the photo. I like how software like Lightroom have lens profiles for the iPhones, though. I'm surprised other OEMs like Samsung and Sony (or Nokia) haven't started submitting lens profiles to Adobe, Yahoo! (Flickr), Corel (AfterShot), and other major media companies.

  • Don't call someone lying just because you don't agree with them. I was an iPhone user forever but decided to try Note 3 for a year. Worst decision ever. Damn thing had impressive stats but it slowed down dramatically, I couldn't stand the lag such as playing videos, deleting photos, simple tasks. The battery drain, the over saturated colors. The only thing I liked was the stylus. But now I'm back to iPhone, don't miss it at all. So glad I got rid of that piece of shit. Sent from the iMore App
  • That's mostly the fault of Samsung's TouchWizz (affectionately called TurdPiss) skin on top of stock Android, me thinks. It really does sap resources.

  • No, the 6 Plus is easily the best iPhone around. You don't even notice the size after two weeks unless you're bouncing between devices.
  • My thoughts exactly. You HAVE to use it for a few weeks in order to get used to it. Once you are used to it, it feels normal and everything else seems tiny. I find that most of the people who say the iPhone 6+ is too big have only used it for a few minutes. I also find that some people bash the 6+ in order to justify not spending an extra $100...
  • I feel the same way. I used to bash it before I bought it. But I'd say after about 2ish weeks, I stopped noticing it. Now when I see smaller phones, I think they are tiny! Totally reversed my outlook on larger phones. I don't even think about the size of the phone anymore. I've had the 6+ for about a month now.
  • Exactly. I can see that it is a jump up for most iPhone users but if they gave it a shot they would love it.
  • Really? Does it suddenly get smaller to fit into pockets after 2 weeks? If so, I wanna know how that works, exactly. I don't wear baggy-ass cargo pants.

  • +1 -- I felt cartoonish using it as a phone the first few days. It doesn't take long though before my iPhone 5S seems like a postage stamp, and the regular iPhone 6 seems too small. This is really an opinion blog posting, the author should've stated as much in the subject line. Happens every holiday season, between Thanksgiving and CES -- a bunch of fluff pieces, nothing of substance :-(
  • I agree. I have hands like a surgeon but I've never been able to type one handed. I had a Note 2 and always said cram IOS in this thing and I could love it apple delivered on this one. Sent from the iMore App
  • I was good with it day one but you are right: two weeks makes you love it. I had a Note 2 and always said, "put IOS in this thing and I would love it!" Apple delivered with the 6 Plus.
  • I agree. I have small hands and I got the 6 plus. After having it a couple of months it feels perfect and normal and every other iphone feels so tiny. It is also so easy on my eyes and I don't have to strain my eyes to see it. I carry it in my coat inside pocket and it feels great. I'm very happy with it.
  • Do you use a case or naked? I switch back and forth but find a case on it makes it a bit bulky.
  • No case too slippery. Need a thin case to get a better grip--the leather apple case is good. Sent from the iMore App
  • You are correct after a couple of weeks you can't tell the difference once you get used to it. Sent from the iMore App
  • I halfway regretted getting the 6 Plus for the first couple of weeks, but since then I've gotten used to the size and love it. Of course it may not be for everyone, but lots of of people dismiss it after playing with one in a store or using a friend's phone for a while, and that's just not enough time to get used to it.
  • Wow you read my mind buddy!
  • Good article. While I am enjoying my 6 Plus, I do believe that most people will agree with you. It's not for everyone. I have used big phones before but always missed iOS. Now I have both. The only time the size bothers me is the rare occasion when I only have one hand available. The positive far outweighs the negative for me. That's me though. I tell most people to look at the iPhone 6. It really is the perfect size for day to day use for most people. Sent from the iMore App
  • I think the iPhone 6 Plus is a great size unless you have female-sized hands! You get a better camera, landscape mode, etc. why would anyone want a smartphone with a screen less than 5"...I will never understand! Sent from the iMore App
  • I bypassed the iPhone 6 even because of the size. I want my phone to fit in my shirt pocket. I hope Apple will add a third phone next time and make it the same size as the 5s. I do wear cargo pants but still like to be able to put the phone in my shirt pocket. I can carry the iPad Mini in cargo pants if I think I will be doing something on the road warranting a larger screen but that is rare for me.

  • I agree Kimberly. I came from the Note3 as well. I got tired of the buggyness of Android. I love the 6 Plus although I wish those people who didn't care for big phones wouldn't bash it for being the same size or smaller as the Note3. ( Also I am sorry for hitting the little report icon on the right of your comment. It was an accident and I hope nothing comes form it).
  • Yep, came from the Note 3. Got the 6+.
  • For me, I was torn as well. I waited in line for 16 hours, starting the night of the launch. I had planned on getting a 6 Plus for both myself and my wife. I walked out with her 6 Plus Gold/White, but they only got one Space Grey/Black in stock (I was 3rd in line and the 1st person got it...) and by the time he could check on the other colors, they were sold out. I really had my heart set on the Plus, so I backordered it. I had set up my wife's 6 Plus for her that morning and would periodically play around with it while I was waiting for my backorder. It felt a bit unwieldy at first, but I didn't use it enough to see if I could get a "feel" for it. A few weeks later, a co-worker switched from Android to Apple and went with the regular iPhone 6. I spent over 2 hours setting it up, getting her ID's in and showing her how to use it (iCloud, App Store, etc). I really liked the feel of the phone and was actually debating on just canceling my 6 Plus and getting a 6 instead because they were on-hand at the store. I based this on my time spent with both devices between my wife and her. Anyway, I went ahead and stuck with my 6 Plus 128GB preorder and wound up getting it about two weeks earlier than scheduled (around mid-October...it was scheduled for Halloween). So, what do I think after a little over a month of daily useage? I'm still unsure...it still feels a little unwieldy and with the case (Urban Armor Gear...fantastic!), it's a little easier to hold. But truth be told, I'm a gamer. Xbox, Playstation, PC, handhelds, mobile. If it weren't for this one fact, I would have been happier with the basic 6 in my daily life. However, I can say hands down that the 6 Plus is one of the absolute best mobile/handheld gaming devices out there! So, for this simple fact, I'm glad I stuck with the 6 Plus. I just wish the games wouldn't eat through the battery so fast! Anyway, I'll just have to deal with the size. #dealwithit - LOL.

  • I bought the iPhone 6 plus and at the beginning I was regretting it. But, after a few weeks of using it I love it and when I try my friend's iPhone 6 I'm always glad I stuck with my plus. I agree with everyone here who says you ha e to use it for a week or 2 to get used to it. Then you will know for sure if it's right for you. Sent from the iMore App
  • I got the 6 because I wanted in on release day & didn't want to take a chance because I thought the 6 plus would be too big. It took me less than a day to feel that the iPhone 6 was 'normal' & my 5s that I'd used & loved for the last year was more like a toy. I had the opportunity to have access to a 6 plus for a week & use it in house 'iPod Touch style' & my mind was made up. I ordered the 6 plus & sold my 6 & I absolutely love the 6 plus now & I also realise that Apple really we're late to this 'Phablet' party but now they are here the future looks very bright once Apple start to take advantage of the bigger screen & update iOS to take advantage of it.
  • The arguments in the article are completely valid and fair. I have several friends and family members who feel the iPhone 6 is the right size. For me however, the 6 Plus is just fantastic. I can't imagine going back to a smaller sized phone. I'm not a big guy (5' 3" in fact), but I don't really notice the phone in my pockets. It's actually reassuring to me. As Peter points out, your aware that it's in your pocket, but I like that I know it's there. Also, the battery life is just nothing short of amazing. I never worry about taking my 6 Plus off of the charger because it really does give me all day life. In the end, in just glad Apple gave us two choices without too many technical differences between the two models. Sent from the iMore App
  • Like someone mentioned above, you have to use it for at least 2 weeks and you will become accustomed to the size. I bought the 6 and the 6 Plus, and at first I thought the Plus was too big and kept switching back to the 6. Now after a month, I sold my 6 and don't miss it at all. 6 Plus is definitely the way to go for me.
  • I recently ordered a 6 earlier this week (waiting for it to be delivered) only because none of the Verizon stores or any wireless carrier for that matter had a demo of the 6 Plus so that I could compare it. So I went with what was there.
    Yesterday I happened to go into the Verizon store again and they had both demo models available, and even though I'm certain I made the right decision, I'm still kind of thinking (maybe I should've gone with the plus). Like someone said, maybe given a week or so of using it it would become comfortable.
  • Get the Plus!
  • It is definitely big, but so is Galaxy note, or every S series from Samsung, Z series from Sony (except mini), new HTC E or M series, Panasonic Lenovo and even blackberry passport. My point being don't look at it as a separate device category from apple. Now you have 3 screen choices with same flavor of apple (or more if you count 4s and iPad mini). So hold it and decide which one is fitting your lifestyle. The differences are very minute if consider same class phones in android. A larger screen was inevitable and apple had to do it. Good thing is apple did it really nice: better battery, better camera, thin profile design and improved iOS. Now it's up to developers to bring the best out of it.
  • I had the good fortune of having to test both phones for user experience due to my job, started with the 6, assuming that the 6 plus was to big, after using the 6 plus for a few days there is no way i would use any other phone, apple or not that is not the same size, the best user experience ever for me, it passed the pocket test as well, so what to say ? for some is too big for me is the best one, but if you do not test it properly and you do not spend sometime with it, you won't really know.
  • Apple sent you a review phone 2 months later?
  • Better title: "The iPhone 6 Plus is just too big [for Me]"
  • I've heard the same things over and over. The iPhone 6 plus is just too big, don't have one handed operation, too big in jeans. I agree with all of this, but the main reason Im completely happy and more than content with my decision of buying the iPhone 6 doesn't have anything to do with the trade offs of owning the iPhone 6 plus and its size. Instead, it has everything to do with how great the iPhone 6 really is. I was one of the many that was not happy with apple going with larger phones. I Was extremely happy with the iPhone 5 and 5s. I loved the size and it fit perfectly in my life as I used my used my iPhone as a phone, iPad Air as a tablet, and my retina MBP for everything else. I'm one of those people that used my iPhone while out and iPad pretty much all the time at home. It took me a good week or two to get used to my iPhone 6. I really almost missed the size of my 5s before it, but this changed. I love the extra real estate. I don't think people that have yet to see the 6 and 6 plus understand that this is still a pretty big jump in size. The 6 is thought to be small, but it is substantial. I've come to love the size. I've used larger android phones for years, but this almost feels smaller yet larger. Many many many people ask if this is the 6 plus as they are just used to the smaller size. Like I mentioned I think many people underestimate the size of the iPhone 6. I love the size. I hate to say That it's perfect, but as for now this is the right size for me. In fact, in the short time I've used the 6 I much prefer it to the 5s and I thought that would never be. The display is gorgeous. My buddy has the droid turbo with the qHD display and I have to say that the iPhone 6 looks better. It isn't always about pixel density more about quality. I can't see pixels no matter how I try. Maybe that is just me. The phone is snappy, has an excellent camera, and best of all great battery life. I just got 10 hrs of usage and 18 hrs of standby and still had 22% battery. It seems far better than the 5s. This included pretty much streaming the entire season of Serial podcast, hours of games, email, Twitter, and basic browsing. Needless to say I've been really impressed. On top of this I use my iPad charger and can charge from 0 to 100% in one hour and 54 minutes! I've spent a reasonable amount of time with both the 6 and 6 plus and it always comes down to either people love the 6 plus because of the size or they go with the 6. I liked both but Im glad I went with the 6 not because the 6 plus is too big (which it is in my opinion), but because the 6 is the perfect size phone for me.
  • +1. Couldn't have said this better! Sent from the iMore App
  • The 6 Plus is a big phone, even for 5.5" phones. I was using a OnePlus One before the switch, and that wasn't a small guy either. Someone coming from a 4s, 5, or 5s, it really takes some getting use to. Those older, smaller phones are much easier to hold and you have to get used to shifting your hand and not dropping the baking sheet of a phone. But even with the OnePlus One, and now the 6 Plus, I have no regrets having this phone. If you have one, give it some time. If you're like Peter and think it's too big: I respect that. Enjoy your phone experience.
  • It's interesting: Your final two reasons for NOT wanting one, are the least of my concerns. While, I WILL give you the unwieldy concern, it really IS overcome (overlooked?) with time, and becomes only a minor inconvenience. Heft? I just don't even notice it, now, if ever? But, what matters MOST (to me, anyway), is battery life! You're right: this is the best I've ever had in any phone I've ever used! Bar none! The 6 is a GREAT size! It is! It feels great in the hand, and absolutely the phone that Apple should've made years ago. But, battery life trumps everything for me. So, while my old complaints are still valid for the phablets before the 6 Plus (no one handed use, etc.), that battery life is worth those minor negatives. Then, you still have the positives that come with a larger screen, to boot. And, I'm not one to talk on my phone much (less than 100 minutes per month? Go figure.), I think it's absolutely THE most comfortable phone I've ever used to talk on. And, I think that IS because of the added size. I guess, what bothered me most about your article, is it seemed to have a tone like you were knocking the 6 Plus to justify your choice of the 6. You just prefer the 6. That's fine. There are those of us who prefer the 6 Plus. There's really no need to validate one decision over the other. That's the beauty of choice.

  • I totally understand why someone would not necessarily want the Plus but after using it for two weeks now I will never, ever, ever, (did I say ever?), go back to a smaller form factor phone again. I was most concerned about it being pocket friendly but it has not cause me any difficulties at all. Yes, you must be a little more conscious about what kind of pocket but overall the experience is not comparable to a smaller phone. When I now hold my daughter's or wife's iPhone 5 I feel like it's an iPod Nano...how did I ever function with such small phones before??? And there's no comparison in battery life...I can use my Plus for 3 days without charging! For those fence-sitters, you won't be sorry for getting the Plus! PS - I'm in my 50's an really treasure the larger screen size as my vision is not what it used to be!!!!
  • Yeah, it's too big. Not for screen size, but from the incredibly stupid high forehead and Jay Leno chin Apple stuck on these things. Look at some of the high end Android phones, great big screens that are larger the the iPhone 6 Plus, yet the overall size of the phone is smaller than the 6+. That said, I still love it. Just don't put the thing in pants pockets. Jacket/coat inside breast pockets are where they go. End of story.
  • I am not sure if they had much of a choice because to include the fingerprint reader there has to be a bezel on the bottom and probably for uniformity as well as making the device thin with the big battery had to have the same bezel on top.

  • Hahaha best comment ever. Sent from the iMore App
  • Indeed! My beefy mitts each wrap around the 6 Plus, just fine.
  • I'd have gone for the regular iPhone 6 if it had optical image stabilization. The bigger battery and extra display options are nice, but if the camera weren't a factor I'd have gone for the smaller model. Not that I've used one, yet. My shipment is on backorder. In the meantime, I'm using another 5.5 inch device, the OnePlus One. The bigger screen is nice, but 4.7 seems plenty big when you put them side-by-side.
  • Lots of opinions on this topic :-) I have a 6+ and I love it. The one-handed usage is the only thing I don't like, and I find the 6+ completely unusable in one hand unless I am sitting down. The reachability issue has nothing to do with it for me, but when walking around, if I try to use it one-handed, I just feel like I'm going to drop the phone (and I don't use a case which makes me even more paranoid about dropping it). That being said, I don't really find it that big of a deal to just use two hands.
  • Personally I think the death of the ipad is greatly exaggerated. The 6+ is awesome! But it still only has 1gb of ram. So when ur a lazy web browser like me, and leave a lot of tabs open, the browser can crag unexpectedly. Just my $.02
  • For those who have trouble with the + and pockets: Use a holster (like the one from Seidio) to carry the phone. It may not be "hip" to do so, but it is very practical
  • Love my 6 Plus.. would never go back to smaller..
  • I love how by the title I was expecting all the comments to be a hate filled anti iPhone 6 Plus dog pile, trying to make me feel bad about my decision, but then all the 6 Plus lovers/owners turned it around, making for a positive pro iPhone 6 Plus environment.
  • Allow me to correct the title. "The iPhone 6 Plus is just too big for me." I have big hands and it's perfect for me.
  • HaHa, wait till you try to wrap your hands around the Nexus 6.
  • Agree, the nexus 6 width is what kills it. Otherwise, not that bad of a phone to carry around.
  • At last we will have our revenge.
  • Gold iPhone 6 Plus is the only acceptable option this year. Kidding, of course. I think people who want a phone-phone will be best served by the 6, while those who want more of a tiny tablet will enjoy the 6 Plus. I also think that's why Apple made both. But, dead to me. Kidding again!
  • *for me. Fixed the title of your opinion piece for you. Love my 6 Plus. No regrets.
  • Yes! Title definitely is a little link bait-ish. But hey I fell for it. Should be changed. Sent from the iMore App
  • Peter I usually agree with you whole heartedly and I respect your opinion but I 100% disagree. Initially I was taken aback by the size of the plus but after a week of usage I can safely say I'll never go to a smaller sized screen! Sure the weight is a little heavy, vibrate is a little loud and my pockets are a little shallow but this phone has changed my workflow. I think your title is a bit sensationalist and might scare people away from trying it. It's totally worth a try! I bet many people will keep it. Sent from the iMore App
  • Peter's just use to holding something small =)
  • Well good thing many of us were blessed with 2 hands to use on the device. But seriously, the size isn't for everyone, and with the huge bezels apple keeps, they really can't shrink it much until they either 1. shrink the home button or 2. be ok with say the top bezel being smaller than on the bottom, similar to what LG did with the g3.
  • I wonder if next year if they keep the plus size devices if they incorporate anything into the OS just for the plus and s plus( or whatever they call it) similar to what they did this year with landscape mode, but even more features? Would that change some peoples decisions about what phone to buy if that happened?
  • No Way, I have the iPhone 6 Plus 64 Gig Space Grey with a Black Ballistic Tungsten case and I love it, I can't see going backwards to them tiny phones, all those people who boasted about the larger screens on the Galaxy Notes are Correct. Sent from the iMore App
  • I have had my 6 plus for about three weeks now and I absolutely love it. I upgraded from an iPhone 5. Since I got the 6 plus I have noticed that the way I use my phone has changed since a lot of operations I used to do comfortably one handed now is done with two. I can generally type one handed okay with a bit of some thumb gymnastics but reaching the top left while holding it in my right hand does not work so well. I often forget to use the reachability mode which I find helpful when I do use it.
    Peter is right on with the battery life, it is incredible on the 6 plus. I got used to just plugging in my iPhone 5 when ever I got to my desk or on my night stand.
    I find that I use my iPad mini less because of the 6 plus. Sitting on the couch, watching videos and browsing the web is great on the 6 plus. I speak in front of people weekly and still use my iPad for notes and when I want to read any thing of length.
    Now that I have used the 6 plus I can't imagine going back to anything smaller. However I usually like my phones naked and I feel to insecure with the 6 plus without a case because it is very large in my hand and I do feel more likely to drop it. I can imagine the feel of the 6 is great in the hand without a case. Either way iPhone 6 or 6 plus are great devices!
  • I just brought an iphone 6 plus, and not sure if i will like it or not. I currently have an iphone 5 and i love it for the games and stuff, but if it is like my moms samsung galaxy note 2 with the size and all, then i think i will like it as i get used to it.
  • Meh. I measured my hands. They are exactly average for an American male. I work my Plus just fine. I can reach my thumb to all four corners one-handed, only I have to be a tiny bit more careful. And I haven't used 'Reachability' since playing with it during the first couple of days.
  • couldn't disagree more. When i grab by wife's iphone 6 I cringe at how tiny it feels
  • The form factor is what kills it to me and to a lesser extend but smaller the regular 6. LG does a good job in its G line with the LG G3 have incredible form factor being smaller than the iPhone 6+ yet having the same screen. Even the Note 3/4 and the Nexus 6 are a bit smaller with each having 5.7 and 6 inch displays in comparisons to the 5.5 inch of the iPhone 6 Plus Posted via the iMore App for Android

  • I've been using Note 2 and 3 after using every iPhones up to iPhone 5. I absolutely love the big screen size. If Apple only had iPhone 6 and not 6 plus I would not have returned to be an iPhone user.
  • This article would be more properly titled "The iPhone 6 Plus is just too big FOR ME." It's clearly not too big for a number of users. I went back and forth between the 6 and 6 Plus before finally settling on the Plus. And I agree with the some of the other comments – it took me a week or two before getting comfortable with the transition. Now when I use a family member's 6 or – even worse – 5S they feel cramped. Two thumb typing on the Plus is fantastic. Hopefully next year with the S series, they'll have an updated 4", 4.7" and 5.5" all similarly spec'd.
  • Not too big for the majority of users on iMore. Sales on the other hand show that most people prefer the 6.
  • And the Toyota Camry is the top selling car in the US. I prefer my Infiniti.

  • I couldn't disagree more, I was very surprised when I first picked up a 6 Plus. It is nowhere near as big as I thought it would be. As far as it taking my iPad Airs place, not a chance. I'm guessing some people are reporting that, is that they picked up the iPad for the wrong reason. To each their own though...
  • I love my 6 plus, it has made the need for an iPad mute and Made the most personal device I own my only device to own, no regrets here.
  • I did a touchy-feely on the 6 and 6+ in the Apple store before ordering online. I was impressed with the display of the 6+ over the 6 and the overall feel. I don't have the manual dexterity for one-handed use, so that wasn't an issue between the two. I'm diggin' the 6+ over any cell phone I've ever had.
  • I was not due an update, and really like my 5S. My son got the 6, he also thought the 6plus was just too big. It has its place, but I like my iPad air 2. Just wish my Saddleback leather iPad 3 case would fit. Having trouble getting use to the thin pattern Apple is taking. Without the case, my son's phone seemed slippery.
  • It's ok with me if some want an Apple phablet, what I don't like is the feeling that Apple may not offer the 5S form factor anymore. I find that downright worrisome.
  • I'm a techie. I've done everything: HTC One, Note 3, DROID MAXX, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One for windows, Galaxy S3, iPhone 4, iPhone 5S, and now I'm on the iPhone 6 Plus. With all of the usage I've done and experiencing other platforms, I've always returned to iPhone. I just had a predisposition it seemed to iPhone and liked the way Apple manages the iPhone and the iOS platform. I was always OCD and kept switching but always said to myself, "if Apple made a bigger iPhone I wouldn't care about other platforms." Now that their is one, I'm finally satisfied and have no regrets. The iPhone 6 Plus is the best phone I've ever had. Sent from the iMore App
  • The 6 Plus is much more impressive mainly for the battery life. OIS is a bonus too. Totally understand why most would pick the 6. (Ideal for one handed use.) But the 6 Plus truly is the best iPhone to date. As long as you can (literally) handle its size.
  • Satisfied 6 Plus owner here, and although there are times when the large size of the device can be problematic I'd say that overall the pros definitely outweigh the cons... For everyday usage I love the plus, but it's too large for me hold when I go running. I used to carry my iPhone 5 in an armband but I just can't see myself doing the same w/ the 6 plus because of its size. Since I'm usually running anywhere from 5-10 miles I really don't feel comfortable holding any device in my hand for the entire time. Haven't figured out a counter to this issue besides buying an iPod nano to use for my workouts. Sent from the iMore App

  • I'm the opposite, I got the regular 6 after having a tough time trying to decide which I wanted. I figured the 6 was already bigger than my 5, why push it, but I regret it now.

  • Agreed, as well as the iPhone 6 is too big for a phone !! A decent size for phoning was definitely the iPhone 5 (and I've big hands >9in). Please note, I'm writing about phone (iPhone) and not about mini-tablet ;-)
  • Due to costs I had to trade my 5S and my iPad Mini to get the 6 Plus, and to be fair it replaces both devices admirably. Last month on my phone bill I had just 4 minutes of talk time, because I just don't make a lot of calls. So for me to use it for games and online access it's great. The lack of 1 handed operation was an issue when I first got it, and I was tempted to exchange for a 6, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Sent from the iMore App
  • Amen Brother Peter, Amen.
  • As someone who loves his 6 plus, I would say that's a fair evaluation of the issues. I can see the 6 will be better for a lot - if not most. I can also see that it will be hard for people to know without taking the plunge. I bought mine on launch day, knowing that if I didn't like it I could sell it for more than I bought it and get a 6 later Sent from the iMore App
  • I am glad that you are speaking for yourself. I had and still have the old versions of iPhone apart from iPhone 3G. To my personal experience iPhone 6 Plus is simply the best phone iPhone ever made. I just couldn't wish for anything more. It's all about one's lifestyle, needs and wants.
  • After 10 days having my iPhone Plus, I don't even notice the size anymore. I have small hands and I have no problem navigating iPhone 6 a plus using just one hand even when I'm on a bike. I can see the size can feel overwhelming if you switch back and forth between the plus and the smaller phones. But I would buy the 6 Plus over the 6 anytime. Mainly because of the battery, optical image stabilization, and the screen real estate. iPhone 6 plus is slightly heavier but with the way I use my phone, I will need to carry extra batteries if I were to have iPhone 6. In the end, the iPhone 6 Plus is still lighter than iPhone 6 + a power bank.
  • The very first time I saw iPhone 6 plus I thought too big for me. I was waiting to buy a 6, unfortunately I got 6 plus as a gift. I felt bad and started using a big phone first time In my life. First two weeks I found very difficult to carry this phone in my pocket and one hand use. But after a month I can say I love this phone. Battery life more than a day. Display is perfect for reading and vedio. Now I don't find difficult to carry this in my pocket and kind of I managed to adjust to use two hand for typing and using the phone. Now a days when I look back to my iPhone 5s I think how on earth I was using such a small screen and I found very difficult to use that Sent from the iMore App
  • I agree with this assessment completely. I ordered the iPhone 6 for a day 1 delivery and I am very happy with the size of it. The size is what I have been looking for since I abandoned BlackBerry back in the 85xx days for an iPhone. Honestly I find the 6+ to be in the middle of the ph/tablet market and is to big as a phone and to small to be a tablet. My personal opinion is that an iPad Mini would be as small as I would want to go on a tablet. All that dribble being spewed there are a couple things I like about the 6+. the 1080 resolution screen is incredible and the camera takes awesome photos.
  • The short version of this should be- The iPhone 6 Plus is too big. That's it.
  • I dont want a tablet in my pocket, 4s hands down best iphone
  • Honestly, I did not want to get the 6 Plus. But when I went in to go and get my 6, I held the 6 Plus and played with it for a while. My friend convinced me on getting it. Now being a whole month, I Love it! Yea it took time to get used to but I love it nonetheless! Sent from the iMore App
  • I have the 6 Plus and I think it's fantastic. Yes it can be a bit awkward in your jeans pocket but I didn't buy one thinking it would be a one hand device. When I'm using it I find it awesome. It took a couple weeks to get used to the size but once I had that was that. A truly wonderful iPhone. Like I say it is a bit awkward in some pockets but that's when I'm not using it. When I use it it's brilliant. I couldn't possibly allow what a device is like when I'm not using it to dictate my choice over what it's like when I am using it. Sent from the iMore App
  • I have to use a case, not to protect the phone but to make it feel more comfortable in my hand. It's just too darn anorexic! I love the phone size for the 6+, though I would have loved a larger display without hiking up pixel count. I don't use my iPad at all, I'm kind of glad I never replaced it, it sits unused. I've always used two hands to operate smartphones. I've got fairly large hands but I have always been worried about dropping the phone. The only thing that I don't like and this is a general dislike is that there is a push to make them ever thinner. The iPhone 6 and 6+ are anorexically thin. Apple could have done so much with both devices by having larger batteries. The iPhone 6 would have had phenomenal battery life, the iPhone 6+ would have gone from being phenomenal to being out of this world. The cost for Apple would have been pennies and the phone would have felt so much better in the hand. I have to use a cover just to compensate and give the phone some thickness. This race for ever thinner phones is now verging on the ridiculous.
  • I have a 6+ for my personal phone and work just replaced a Blackberry with a 6 for me. Carrying around both, I see pluses and minuses with both and ultimately it comes down to your use case. My personal device is rarely used as a phone. I read articles on it, I watch videos on it, I play a few games on it, and I use it as my main device whenever I'm on the road. I use it so heavily in this regard that I was tempted to get an iPad mini before the 6+ was announced. So for me, it's the perfect device for how I use it. And 90% of the time, I'm using it one handed without issue. Slips in my pants or my dress shirt pockets without issue. I haven't put it in a jacket to feel it, but in my sports coats I do not notice it. But then there is my 6. I used that for conferences all the time. I look at my work calendar and catch up on emails with it. It is my supplemental device for when I'm not behind my desk. As such, the smaller size works because it plays a much smaller role in my activities. I do not interact WITH the phone as much as I interact THROUGH it. My personal device is not used in this manner, so the extra size there makes a huge difference precisely because it can substitute being an iPad. Around the house, I refer to the devices as my iPhone 6 and iPad Nano. Sent from the iMore App
  • DUDE. Disagree. My rebuttal to come.
  • Peter is right. It is too big.
  • I had the iPhone 6 Plus since launch. I've had 3 replacements, two of them bent. Yes, bent, in my front pocket. Only a slight bend - unnoticeable unless you actually put it on a flat surface to look. I've gone and bought a 6, and am in the process of getting a refund for the plus. The battery decrease is quite big - as you say, you can last two days without worry wih the plus. But, I did hate that if I was on the train stood up as I often am, I couldn't easily reply to texts and getting it in and out of my pocket to change track was a hassle. I think maybe a 5.2 inch phone at max would've been perfect. They just need to increase battery across the range.
  • probably bent because, judging by your photo, you stand far too close to people
  • Boom!
  • I used standard iPhone 6 for one week and returned it. Stupidity of a phone size! It's a "phone", not a tablet! Does anyone remember the iPhone 5 thumb ad? PLEASE, make the iPhone 6a with a THIRD size: 4 inch! Sent from the iMore App
  • I glad I went with an iPhone 6 instead of the Plus but calling iPhone pictures great still makes me shake my head in disbelief. I carry two phones, work and personal, and my other is always a Lumia. I had a chance to spend some time with the 6 Plus camera as well. My iPhone wins in camera speed and shot to shot color consistency but taking the photos off the phone I can see how little clarity there is and how much noise they have in low light. My Lumia always wins on clarity, natural sharpness and not the software kind, and any lighting lower than sunlight the noise levels are far better. At first I liked the pictures on the iPhone until I blew them up. Now I use my Lumia for the pictures again since any color metering errors I can correct via software. Overall I'm pretty happy with my iPhone 6 except the camera. Sent from the iMore App
  • Agree and I got the 6 on launch day, however, I carry two phones and had said that wouldn't mind carrying the Plus as a secondary device so couple weeks ago had an upgrade and went for it. I have to say I do prefer my 6 and the Plus is too big and wouldn't want it as a primary device. Don't get me wrong I love the Plus in many ways and after using it sometimes my 6 seems small and my wife's 5s seems really small now but if I had to carry just one phone would most def be the 6, however, I love them both. I will say this when I hold the Plus to my ear to talk does not feel huge like the Note 3 I once purchased and took back in 3 days because it seemed huge.
  • After holding both 6 and 6 plus I have to say I prefer the 5 and 5s size. My wife also feels the same. I just read a rumour that there might be a new 4" iphone next year. I'll call it 6s ( "s" for small). If true I will be very happy.
  • I believe you're in the minority.
  • For me what I like best about the iPhone 6+ is the size. I purchased the 128GB version because I look at my iPhone 6+ as both my phone and my iPad mini. I couldn't afford the versions I wanted of both so the iPhone 6+ was my answer. The longer I have it the more I like it. It amazes me just how small my iPhone 5 really was. If I did not really like the 6+, I would be missing my 5 cause I always liked it. Sent from the iMore App

  • I love my iPhone 6 Plus.
    Yes, it's big, but with this screen, battery and camera it's superb!
  • Anyone using Note 2 switched to the 6 Plus? How is the one handed usage? I can easily use it with one hand but my only concern is typing with one hand. On android, Swiftkey and Samsung keyboards have a one handed mode in which the keyboard fits to some 80% of the screen, easily reachable with one thumb
  • Actually, this exists for the iPhone 6 Plus as well =) Just search for Tinykey on the app store. Makes the keyboard smaller, and typing becomes a whole lot easier! I strongly recommend it to all of you with normal sized hands.
  • While I understand the one hand use issues, I like the size format so much that I simply cannot go back to the smaller version. I just do so much more on the plus. Email viewing for one is much better sideways. Using maps apps in the car is better and for one hand use I have been getting better at it. For me it has been a matter of training myself just like when I abandoned my blackberry. Just my opinion though. Glad Apple put out the option for different tastes, uses and people. Sent from the iMore App
  • I bought the 6 then returned it for the 6 plus. I make very few phone calls, but read lots of books, RSS feeds, watch Sky Sports etc (UK equivalent of ESPN), and, very occasionally work my personal spreadsheets. In other words use it far more as a portable computer with internet connection.
    In this respect the 6 plus is fantastic, very pleased with it. However if your use is primarily a phone then stick with the 6.
    Well that's my view!
  • I have a 6+ in silver and, surprising to me, I like it. I too did not preorder a phone because I mostly figured I wanted a 6, but wasn't 100% sure. I defected from Android to an iPhone 5 at launch, in part because I wanted a smaller phone (4.7" was just too big), but mostly because the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon was a debacle. For 2 years I begged someone to put high end internals in a 4.5-4.7" chassis (or for Verizon to get another Nexus with a better battery life experience than the GN). Finally Apple was making larger, but not too large iPhone and Verizon was getting another Nexus. Yet, here I was considering a giant iPhone. I went for the 6+ on an impulse, waited 5 long weeks for it, and actually really like it. I can mostly use it entirely one-handed, can definitely thumb type one-handed, and enjoy the battery life. Considering the Verizon Nexus 6 is still in the wind, I don't think Google will win me back this year either. Sent from the iMore App
  • I got the iPhone 6 pretty much for the same reasons - I hadn't preordered at midnight along with everyone else because I thought I wanted to check them both first. But as the day progressed and I started to think of how big the phone would be in my pocket, I ended up jumping on the site and ordering the iPhone 6 gold 128 G.
    But....I will go larger next year. I will go for the iPhone 6 Plus then.
  • I guess you get used to it to an extent, but its hard to believe thats completely true for day to day use, specially when some of the most used buttons on any ios app are located at the top left and top right of the screen (back, done etc.) reaching those is impossible unless you keep double tapping the home button.
  • Hello Peter, Nice article. I have the iPhone 6 Plus. At first, I felt the all the same concerns you do (too big, heavy in pockets, can't type with one hand...). I got mine the day it came out. Since then, I have become comfortable with the weight and how it feels in the pockets (including shirt pockets). It's almost like it's not even there. What I think really made a difference is this: the first time I held it, it felt slippery when trying to type so I asked the 'genius' in the store if there was a protective case he could suggest. It just so happened that they were pushing a slim case that had just the grip I needed. It immediately felt better holding it, although I must now type with both thumbs. To my surprise, I'm getting use to it a lot better than I thought I would. The Reachability feature is OK but I find I don't really make use of it. But as you said, the true benefit is the form factor itself: I no longer use my iPads. One of them has become a very expensive wake up clock; the other, the mini, is gathering dust somewhere. The screen on the iPhone 6 Plus is large enough for all my needs. The next time I travel, I might just bring the iPhone 6 Plus and nothing else (not even my MacBook Pro... I think). Long story short, it felt odd at first but it works for me now. The protective case makes a huge difference. Incidentally, when I look at my father's iPhone 5, man it looks small! Mario
  • Oh oh, i just brought an iphone 6 plus, and being a small guy, you guys are getting me worried, :(, but if my phone is like my mom has the samsung galaxy note 2, i was trying to measure the phones and see how it compares, but it is hard to do, if you dont have the phone. But i think i will be ok with it, it seems to be ok if you dont mind the bigness of it.
  • Hmm just got my phone today and so far i thought it would be bigger than what i have, but so far i like the size of it, and it seems nice and all. Now comes the fun part, playing with it, heehehe :P
  • I like the size of the 6 Plus, although I am pushing 6' and have large hands. Still using an iPhone 4, probably going to buy the OnePlus One this week (maybe today), but if I had to buy an iPhone it'd definitely be a 128GB 6 Plus in Space Gray.
  • Agreed. One handed use definitely goes out the window with the 6+. But I know I'll appreciate the larger size when I travel. Won't have to tote around my iPad mini with me anymore.
  • Get the Plus, you will always question yourself if you made the right decision, if you don't like it, you can exchange for the 6 which are more plentiful during 14 day trial. I actually got he 6 plus, exchanged for the 6 and then exchanged again for the 6 plus. I know, kinda nuts, but after having the plus and going to the 6 was a let down for me.
  • These "too big" articles seemed ridiculous about 5 minutes after getting my 6 plus and realizing how much easier it is to use than my 5s and it fits perfectly fine in my pocket. The only reason to not prefer the 6 plus is if you wear your pants too tight.
  • I am not sure of the case manufacturer, but verizon sells one that is thin and textured so as not to be slippery. The case also slides easily into a holster with a belt clip which negates the heavy pocket syndrome.
  • Perfect size for me but then I'm coming from an LG G3. Switched because mainly the iP6 plus screen is so much brighter and the G3 was so dim on sunny days. No regrets, however a less taller bezel would be perfect.
  • Im in love with my iphone 6 plus!

  • I got my iPhone 6 Plus a couple of days ago. After having the Note 3 I didn't want something smaller so the iPhone 6 Plus was the obvious choice; I love it. It's a great device and for someone coming from Android to the iPhone platform it's like a breath of fresh air.
  • I picked up my 6 plus four days to writing this review and I'm glad I did. My partner got iPhone 6, not only is the screen small, it also feels tight typing on the 6. I use BB for work so I type with two hands regardless of the device. Typing on the plus is excellent. the display on the plus is amazing I don't have to keep zooming in and out. Oh it feels great in my pocket
  • I have been a diehard android fan for years now. I just ordered the iPhone 6+ 128gb phone. I am switching over from the Note 3 only because I am in the process of converting everything in my house to a Mac. So far I have to say that I am sure that I will miss my Note but it seems like over time of using it it deletes pics it won't read memory SD cards like it used to. It seems very clunky not sure if Samsung needs to do a software update or what. I am hoping to post on here as soon as I get to know my old friend Apple again.
