    Default Any Buyer's remorse for iPhone 6 Plus owners?
    Even though folks are only just now getting their new iPhones, I thought it would be a worthwhile topic to find out if anyone is regretting getting the iPhone 6 Plus and wishes they had instead purchased the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. Are you considering trading back the iPhone 6 Plus for the regular iPhone 6?

    Please comment in here once you've had your device for a day or two...

    Good luck! Should try holding one before you purchase one.

    Mine is finally set for delivery Oct 3, justifies my decision to buy both models. Love my 6 though and still excited about receiving the 6 Plus.

    Glad you got it finally, Bo! I held one the other day.. Too damn huge. I'd feel ridiculous holding it against my head..

    I will use it I think, but I agree. It's kinda like holding my iPad mini retina to my face. lol

    Got my 6+ on the Monday after release day (Sep 22 I think).

    Gotta say I am completely satisfied with my choice. Now that my hands have had a few weeks to get comfortable with it, It is the perfect size for me. Very glad I went with the 6+.

    Do you find that you use the "Reachability" feature to reach things that are further high on the screen with the 6+?

    Almost never... It's a great feature, but maybe I'm just not used to using it yet. I tend to just whip out the second hand, cause I'm rarely in a situation where I can only use one hand.

    I'm using the 6 Plus today, and because my hands are small the "Reachability" feature is pretty much what I have to do. I do really like it, but admit using the 6 for a couple weeks now I certainly prefer it at this point.
    I will give it a chance (6 Plus). I love the screen size actually just find using it as a phone itself odd for me. I'm happy I bought both of them (being a collector anyway of all things Apple).

    Now I am ready for a jailbreak, stock iOS is the greatest challenge for me now I guess.

    Stock iOS definitely takes some getting used to...

    I find myself turning on my 5s to get updates and then realize how I so miss all the tweaks and themes. The thing I miss most is a lockscreen weather widget. dayum.

    Well the 6/6+ both reach China next Friday - way ahead of early projections (which were not until 2015 Q1). It's only a matter of time that the Pangu team will have it. Or Evad3rs. But my money is on Pangu.. They have something to prove... I think they'll beat Evad3rs. But we shall see. I do NOT think we'll be waiting all the way to Christmas this time though..

    Me too.

    Hear that, the number of members that log on drops so dramatically, insane. Hardly anyone to play with huh?
    As you know, I kinda stay in the background, use the Random thread a lot as a social thing. But I read through most all threads and am logged on all day every day.

    Yep.. I know the "ways of Bo".. .. Make us laugh a lot too when you pop in…

    This is my third "ghost town" period since I joined MMi. Not fun .. I like the way you put it… "There's nobody to play with"… ;-)

    I've had my 6+ for about a week and I absolutely love it. Granted, I came from a Note 3(had a 4S before the Note 3) so I'm used to the big screen already. Other than me trying to press the back button, which doesn't exist on an iPhone (LOL), I am very happy. It is the greatest cellphone I have ever owned.

    Been using the 6 for a few weeks now and really like the size. Gonna get a 6 plus tomorrow and see what's up.
