    So I just placed my order for a iPhone 6 with 64 gigabytes and space grey color. I want to know what people with the phone already think of it?

    Wife has the 6 and loves it. The thinness makes up for the added screen size. I am running a 6 plus and I love it as well!

    You made a wise choice! I've had my 6 since Friday and love it. I did add a case because I was afraid of dropping it (it's thin!) Battery life is awesome so far.

    Edit: last phone was a Droid Razr.

    Would be useful to know which phone you upgraded from too.

    Based on some of his previous gear picks, I'm going to guess an iPhone 4 or 4s.

    Friend of mine just got the iPhone 6, she loves it. I was helping her setup some things over the weekend, and the screen size is great. It was hard for me to use my iPhone 5s after using her 6 for an hour. Makes the 5S feel so small. I thought I wanted the 6 Plus, but after using her 6, that might be as large as I need.

    I'd like the 6 plus, but only for the optical image stabilized camera. The 6 is almost identical in dimensions to my current phone, an HTC One M7, which is a very good size.

    Any chance anyone can vouch that the camera is that much better on the plus?

    The photos look amazing on the 6. by far the best camera I have seen on a smartphone. The aperture is a f2.2 I think, not sure what iso, but it does do low light really good with some nice depth of field. Its using focus pixels, which DSL cameras have with multiple focus points. The optical stabilization is going to be GREAT for video, and with focus pixels, you will be able to pull off some cool video where the subjects change a lot.

    I use a DSLR, so the smartphone camera has never been that important to me except for video. I am excited for 240fps in video. 120fps is a killer feature on my 5s.

    My boys wrestle, so the slo-mo would be fantastic for pointing out areas of opportunity.

    Can anyone think of a nylon case similar to the maxpedition style phone cases that fits a 6 plus? Doesn't have to be MOLLE but able to be attached to my gear slinger strap.


    Edit: I good with wurds...

    Big time! I use this app Coach's Eye, it has some amazing features. I use it for coaching baseball (Swing and Pitchers motion). Slow-mo (120fps) has been a game changer for that purpose alone.

    And full benchmarks are in...

    Phone 6 tops competition in benchmarks, and battery life - aol.it/1mCZxm2

    The phones are bending in front pockets under normal use.

    I was informed, by various memes, that iPhone 6 includes some fantastic new features that have been around for years. Personally, I quite like retro stuff. The bendiness may be an Apple exclusive, so hats off to them for that! ;)

    Bendgazi is a great insurance program. If you need or want a new phone just bend it and take it in. They'll give you a new one!

    I don't think we should say "iPhones bend," as it's slightly ambiguous. They 'flex'.

    Not sure if you realize, but it's a none issue. 9 phones reported, consumer reports published there tests. I do think it's great that social media can have this affect on people. It just went viral and caused some hysteria amongst Android fan boys. :)
