“Last month, I spent about two weeks with a loaner iPhone 6 Plus,” Stephen Hackett writes for 512 Pixels. “Last week, after being back with the 6 for about 10 days, I purchased a larger phone for myself, throwing caution to the wind with a mid-cycle purchase.”
“The first few days with a 6 Plus are awkward, even coming from the iPhone 6. I’ve dropped it a few times, and have learned that one-handed use while walking is a terrible idea for me,” Hackett writes. “Losing one-handed operation isn’t as big of a deal in practice as I thought it would be.

Hell, the Apple Watch seems to be built around that very idea.”
