Anyone have an iPhone 6 plus?

Thinking of replacing my LG with an iPhone. Not that I need the large screen but it would come in handy during my classes due to screen size for video and typing.

Anyone have one and what are the pros and cons please.
Thanx

I have one, cannot think of any cons. I like the larger size, the screen is great. Fits well in my large hands. I think you really need to go to an Apple store and hold one and decide if the 6 Plus is the right size or to big. For me it still works fine one handed, just have to position the phone a little differently sometimes.

i have one, I love it - I basically rarely use my iPad any more. The text is comfortable enough that I don't require my reading glasses.

The only con is the size, you will have to get used to having it in your back pocket or shirt pocket or front pocket of your pants.
Plus find a suitable place in your car while you drive.. it now takes up a cup holder.

Just remember to purchase a screen protector and case for it.
I bought -z nitro glass and a casemate naked case for it.
One last note - if you will have the need to text while you drive or email.. I personally avoid it until I have reached my destination because of the size, but if you have to - siri dictation works well.. as the size of the unit is not meant for one hand [ also my car's bluetooth works well with siri. ]

I have one, love it. No regrets whatsoever. So much easier to read. I almost never use my iPad anymore. Now when I look at my wife's iPhone 5s, I cringe at how tiny it seems.

I have a 6, my daughter a 6 plus. She loves hers and I love mine. Found the plus waaaay too big for my needs and proper eyewear is the key to the smaller screen that is way bigger than the 5. 'Sides, I bought a phone, not a mini / mini iPad.

I have a 6 Plus. The zoomed view on a big screen is pretty nice for older eyes - makes reading much better. The 6 Plus' camera has optical image stabilization which should in theory help in low light video and photos. I was hesitant about the larger size of the phone but it has been an easy switch from a iphone 5.

I'm happy with my 6 Plus. My iPad Air is now a kids device, I gave my iPad mini to my sister to replace her first gen iPad and my iPhone 5C that was given to me by work is almost useless cause I find it way too small.

If you want one iOS device then I say the 6 plus is a good alternative. Not for everybody though.

First impression of the 6+ was that it was crazy big. Spent some time reading the early reviews and the message was "you'll get used to it and then won't want to live without it". I took the chance and bought the 6+. I generally carry it in a shirt pocket.

It is a bit big some times, I switch to my 5 when I'm on the kayak (and I have a special case for it that keeps it dry). The 5, which used to seem a good size, is tiny now. Hard to believe I was happy with it and the 3gs before it.

My reaction when I bought mine was "I thought it would be bigger". So much was said about it being too big, that I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it fit in my hand, how easily it fit in any pocket. My only size complaint was that it was too thin. Once I put a case on it, it was fine.
