    Apple - iPhone 6

    So who's getting one? :)

    I'm still on an iPhone 4 so I'm definitely getting one. The only question now is whether it'll be a 6 or 6 Plus. I figured I need a hands-on before I decide.

    I have an iP5 which would turn 2 yrs-old on Jan 5

    ..but it has small scratches on the back now
    ..and I find it's smallish screen a disadvantage
    ...and its kinda heavy
    ...and the battery life is not as great as before

    so yes, i'm getting an iP6+ :p

    I have to get an iPhone 6 for my wife and a 6 Plus for me, in colors to match our Apple Watches.

    I was sure I would prefer the 4.7" version before the announcement. But better battery and OIS is really making me think that the 6+ may be it.
