Has anyone else switched from a smaller phone (5c in my case) to the 6 plus? It's so BIG! ????Am trying to get used to it, but wondering if it might be just a bit too unwieldy for daily use? Or will I get used to it in a week or so? I've been eyeing it up for ages and was hoping it would be a good option as both a phone and tablet, as my old Nexus tablet is dying a death. ????I have 14 days to change my mind on this new phone/contract so I'm giving it a try with an open mind. Are there any 6 plus fans out there who want to help me love my phone??

I got used to it and now find the old one too small smile

I got used to mine within a week. To begin with it just seemed enormous - now other phones look tiny. The only downsize is that it won't properly fit in my back jeans pocket.

Yay, glad others have got used to it - it's the heaviness I'm quite surprised at - although I don't know why, it's twice the size of my old one! And the one-handed thing. I wonder if I'll miss that..?

It is very big - but you only notice when it's next to something smaller...

I use it as a second screen to watch TV on. It does fit in my back pocket, but it pokes out the top and I've caught it getting into the car.

Which is why I got the watch....... now the phone stays on my desk and I only need to have a watch with me. (that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it)

grin Chunky ????The screen is AMAZING. I watched a movie trailer earlier and was blown away by how good the screen is. I don't watch a lot of TV on my phone usually - but i definitely could with this one, my ageing eyes wouldn't be squinting at the small screen! ????Does anyone miss one-handed texting?

Hm. Ignore the random ???? in my last post - not sure how they got in there?! I'll blame the beta Talk app I'm posting from!

I'm planning on it!
I've got the new one on pre order for next week and I'm upgrading from the 5. It's got to do the best of both worlds as Toad has basically stolen the ipad for himself.

Yes Personal, I'm finding it's very good for Internet/social media etc. ????And the fact it's not very easy to carry around in my pocket I've decided could be A Good Thing as I will most likely leave it down more and not reach for it so often.

Yeah, the app does the ???? thing, they're working on it. I was in hospital last week and had a lovely chat with an elderly lady who was telling me she could remember it still being quite rare to have a phone in the house where she lived as a child. It's amazing to think how technology's progressed! Couldn't imagine not having gadgets to hand...
