I currently have an iPhone 5s and am due an upgrade in the new year. I don't know whether to go for a 6 or a 6 plus (or even a 6s or 6s plus but may not be able to afford that).
I use my iPhone for reading books, watching Netflix and general online browsing so do want a bigger screen and the 5 feels tiny but I am worried the 6 plus will be too big, like a tablet and awkward to use to make calls!
What do you have, what do you prefer and does anyone have experience of both?
In your case, I would probably go for the 6 plus. I have the 6, which is big enough for me, but my DM uses hers for reading, much as you describe, and she has the 6 plus. It is massive, but I don't think it looks ridiculous when she makes calls.
Are you able to go to the apple shop and have a proper look at both, to help you decide?
