I pre-ordered the 6. I’m told I should have it on launch but we’ll see.

I have the 5s but I’m able to upgrade to the new phones for relatively cheap (without having to sign another contract) so I normally do with every new release that comes out. I briefly considered the 6+ but I think it will be too mammoth for me.

Npt me! I’ve never jumped on the Iphone bandwangon. I adore my BlackBerry and have one of the newest models. I’ve used my sister’s Iphone and honestly, it couldn’t compare. I’ve also tried the Galaxy but keep coming back to my trusty BlackBerry.

I’ve bought into the whole Apple thing — hook, line, and sinker. I’ve had three apple computers (over the last 12 years), two iphones (over the last 6), and just got my first ipad earlier this year.

My upgrade date isn’t until October 11th, so I couldn’t preorder — but I’m leaning toward the 6+. I’ll have to see how it fits in my hand, but the battery life will be hard to turn down.

I won’t be getting the iPhone 6 or 6+. I currently have the 5s and have no problems with it. I’m also really disappointed that Apple increased the size of the iPhone. The fact that it wasn’t a tablet for your face was the main reason why I switched to Apple years ago. I really wish they would keep a smaller version for people who prefer to have a phone the size of a phone. I plan to keep my iPhone 5s until it completely breaks. And even when it does break, hopefully the 5s will still be available and I can get it again.

I’m not on the iPhone/Apple bandwagon whatsoever. I have a hand me down iPod (from like 2010), and that’s it. I have a Galaxy 2, but I’m due for an upgrade and my screen is cracked so I am going to have to cave and get a new phone. I hate getting new phones, I like what I am used to!

Also, I feel like such a slimy consumer when I go with Apple products. Just how crazy people go over them turns me off to the brand. I will most likely just upgrade to whatever the newest Galaxy is… 5 or 6 by now probably.

I’ve had pretty much every iPhone since 2001 but I’m worried this one is going to be too big for me. I already have to shift it around to reach the top of the screen and I can barely reach the whole keyboard 1 handed. Waiting to see it in person before I do anything… I’ll probably just keep my 5 for awhile though. 🙁

I am getting it.  I haven’t decided whether I am getting the 6 or the 6+ yet.

I preordered the 6 and my fiance preordered the 6+. Mine is supposed to be available for pickup on the 19th, butttt we’ll see. FI’s isn’t coming until mid-October. I have the 4S still and it turns off at 30% battery, so I couldn’t wait any longer! I usually get the “S” version, so it’ll be weird getting the newest iteration.

catwoman1701:  Another Blackberry person!  We are so rare!  Everyone is always like “just upgrade to iPhone already!”  and I’m like “No, you don’t get it.  I’m CHOOSING to keep my Blackberry!”  It’s so hard for them to understand I’m actually very happy with my phone.  I had an iPhone for 2 months and hated it!  I don’t know how you iPhone people live without the notification light!

The 6 looks so similar to my boyfriend’s Galaxy phone, I’m shocked.  I also am surprised they went for bigger and thinner at the same time.  I feel like they were already difficult to hold onto before.

CHristine2809:  I have a work blackberry and hate it.  The screen is so small, I can hardly read anything.  I only use it when I travel!!!  Maybe there are better ones than the awful one I have for work (the Bold, I think)…..

goingtotherooftopoflove:  i dont know!!!

I have an upgrade and I too want to change providers! I have had an eligible upgrade for almost a year now!! i have iphone 4s! and still love it! I have never even upgraded the IOS because i love the original lol. The new one looks cartooney. I didnt get the Iphone 5 or 5s because i didnt like the bigger size and there wasnt anything game changing about it, so i figured i would just wait for 6

but 6 doesnt have anything really game changing for me either. I was excited for the rumors about wireless charging and built in heart rate monitors. waaah 🙁 I really dont want a droid but now the iphones are almost as big! And they have some pretty cool features. But i love iphones! such tough choices lol

goingtotherooftopoflove:  I pre-ordered the 6. I lost my phone four years ago near Halloween time (oops!) and my upgrade date has lined up nicely with the new iphone release every two years. I definitely would not be getting a new one if it weren’t for the fact that I am due for an upgrade (and that my phone battery + power button were both recalled and I never got them fixed…it’s a piece of crap right now).
