  • iPhone 6 Sales Dominating iPhone 6 Plus in the U.S.


    While Apple's iPhone 6 Plus has, by no means, been a sales disappointment, Apple's first try at a phablet also hasn't been the domestic sales blockbuster that it's littler sibling, the iPhone 6, has proven to be in the last two months.

    According to freshly published data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, iPhone 6 is outselling iPhone 6 Plus by an impressive 3-to-1 margin going into the 2014 holiday shopping season.

    All told, this may really not come as that much of a surprise to Apple. The company, many analysts believe, opted for producing a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model solely to convert many longstanding Android users who would have come to iOS sooner had there been a phablet-sized device available. It now appears that the iPhone 6 Plus has served its intended purpose.

    Meanwhile, the 4.7-inch model has been the overwhelming new smartphone of choice for current and former iPhone owners who still appreciate the relatively modest-sized iPhone frame.

    Nonetheless, as researchers note, with iPhone 6 Plus units facing more supply struggles than iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus may actually be a bit more popular than today's data would otherwise suggest. All told, there may be a great number of prospective iPhone 6 Plus buyers who just haven't been able to get their hands on the hardware yet.

      Naturally. If Apple users wanted a Droid sized phone..they would have purchased a Droid :] I work in a company with a thousand users and I know of only two people that bought the 6+. I was at the gym the other day and had my 6 with me. I could barely fit it into my shorts to work out. I can only imagine bringing a 6+ to the gym haha! I like the ability of the phone, awesome pics, landscape mode and 1080p vids. Yet, the shear size of the phone is just too much for me. I have the 6 and love it..thanks Apple.

      I've got the 6 and really love it. I used to always say I could never use a big phone. I even put my sim back in my 5s because I missed the smaller form. I've came back to the 6 and I'm learning to like it a lot more. Now I'm really wanting the 6+. Primarily because I deal with a lot of documents on the go, so the bigger screen while still being somewhat portable will be really helpful. The extra battery life is a big selling point for me, too.

      When I got my iPhone 6 Plus, I was a bit overwhelmed with the size. I was a jealous of my wife's iPhone 6 as it fit in my hand perfectly. I pulled out my iPhone 4s yesterday to use in my Sony Altus. I recoiled in horror at how small the screen appeared. One thing that helped was the case I bought for my 6 Plus the Platinum protective case at BestBuy with case and holster with a belt clip. I'm not worried about "Bendgate". A little common sense goes a long way.

      Plenty of people use their phone while working out just for music.

      Any phone is too big for the gym. Get an iPod nano and work out for real. You don't need to have a telemarketer call your in the middle of your workout... You might get better results.

      LOL. A "real workout" requires an iPod nano. I can't tell if people actually believe this kinda stuff or are just goofing around.

      I have the Iphone 6+, I will never go back to a smaller phone. I had the 5S, now it looks to me way too small. Using the Iphone 6+, Its a pleasure to text, use apps, etc. The Wifi 802.11AC, oh boy! The battery last forever, i charge through the night, and I don't worry anymore charging it during the day.

      Guaranteed that has impacted sales of the plus... I went to a best buy right after they got the display phones and people kept asking if there were any 6 plus available, the employee would inform them that they'd have to order one and wait at least a month... Lots of people settled for a 6.

      I thought my 5s was a perfect size, now I see a 5s and it looks like it's a 4 and is ridiculously small... When I first saw a Galaxy Note I thought that they were too big and wouldn't have left apple for a larger screen phone... My girl and I were slightly concerned about having pre ordered the 6 plus without seeing and holding them first, once we got them though we were sold... Battery life is amazing, just a huge step up... Much easier on my eyes to view web pages and I've noticed I hold my phone further away when reading things now, almost no more need for me to pinch zoom on pages either... This phone is also easier for me to hold with my shoulder while talking... We love our 6+ !

      This is exactly it for me. It was the only reason I bought a 6, because I didn't want to wait 2-3 weeks for the 6+ and the 6 was still available with no delay.

      I at first ordered the 6+ and had a ship date of 10/23 so I settled on the 6. I still would like to have a 6+. I'll wait until next year to get the 6s.

      I agree the 6+ is a little too big, but it's worth it! I'm loving it.

      Of course its going to outsell, there is no availability for the 6+ i had to wait a full month to receive mine. The statement would be useful if there was overstock on each to actually gauge on customer's wants and needs. But if you have a severely limiting factor of supply you could also argue "we sold them all", so people want them.

      No a real workout implies that you are not distracted by your phone taking selfies and posting on instagram. The iPod is just for people who need music while they work out. Basically if you have time to play with your phone then you're not working out.

      Yeah these stats are REALLY SKEWED! Most people I know that wanted a 6 + "settled" for the 6 because of availability!!! Stores had 6 but no 6+ and it was NOT because the 6+ was sold out! Now that they have the 6 they love it and make the statement that the 6+ would have been too big, BUT I wonder how many are saying that because they just have the 6 and are happy with it?? I "heard" of a few people getting the + and wanting to downsize to the 6 because it was too big but maybe they got "used" to it?

      I got the 6+. It's the phone apple should have made 8 years ago. As someone who wears glasses I can't use rinky dink little screens to get anything done without it being aggravating.

      I was initially concerned about the size of the 6+ (especially with a protective case), but it fits just comfortably in all my slack and shorts which have deep pockets in them. I like the 6+ so much I'm selling my ipad as it's more portable for reading in certain places without calling attention to myself.

      Love the 6+. Had to go to ebay unfortunately to purchase it because of apple's shortage.

      Even with a Griffin Survivor case on my 6 + I can still fit it in most of my my button up shirts pockets...
