Switched from a 4s to a 6.
The display is great and the size makes reading and surfing a much nicer task (if you can use both hands).
But, holding the device is a pain. In the beginning I thought I would get used to it but I haven't and probably won't.
I already dropped the device like 4 to 5 times due to its thinness and size and the edges are already broken. This never happened to me with the 4s.
Maybe its just me, maybe not. Anyway, my next phone will certainly not be that big.
"I first had no intention to buy it" followed immediately by "I was convinced that it would work for my hand size well"
i'm seeing a lot of articles with a similar sentiment. funny how quickly opinions change when Apple releases a product formerly deemed ridiculous and useless.
Maybe the Apple fanboy hands had grown for the last few years and now it's ok.
Will never understand how a creative person can say they don't understand the use case for a stylus. I literally sent the 6+ back because theirs nothing to do with all that screen space but watch or browse aka consumption focused device.
Felt handicapped with the 6+ after a week of feeling less productive with it. At least I can use a stylus on the Note 4 to draw, sketch, clip images for later use, work on artist concepts, arrange moodboards, etc uses. Then hop over to my Note 10.1 and continue sketching at a more comfortable size. Then transfer to PC and a Wacom tablet for finishing up.
"So switching to the iPad Air in certain situations is definitely more of a convenience thing, but is is one that I only hardly can imagine to give actually up."
But they won't fit in my skinny jeans. Kidding there, but do larger phones feel comfortable in your front pocket? Do you ever feel the need to take it out for comfort? I know it ends with it doesn't bend, but my 5s is rugged little bugger and just don't want to have to think about whether my phone is safe.
I'm sure you've put a gameboy in your pocket at some point in your life or some variation of a hand held game that was larger and heavy and didn't break on you as a kid.
You'll be fine.
