iPhone 6 ... what matters to you?

There has been much discussion here at Envision and on the internet about how to decide between the new iPhones. As with all your purchases, the decision should be based on your individual needs and desires. I know I am personally torn between wanting the larger screen and greater battery life of the iPhone 6+ and knowing that, for me, the convenience and usability will matter greatly with my daily phone use.

On a recent family trip where I was using my iPhone 5 extensively, and I found myself wondering what it would be like to have a Phone 6plus. As I almost always use my phone one handed and I often drop the phone in my back pocket for safe keeping, I was not sure I would be so thrilled with the bigger phone.

The iPhone has always been valued by those who want to be able to use their phone one-handed. Typically this is for typing on the go; feet to the pavement, coffee cup in the other other hand. At 4.7- and 5.5-inches respectively, however, how well do the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 hold up for one-handed use?

I have played with both iPhone 6's in Apple stores and I have borrowed a co-workers 6+ to see how it feels in my hands and pockets as well when not tethered to display in the store. But as much allure as the longer battery life and larger screen have for me, I think I have realized that I am not two handed iPhone user.

Take a look at the video from iMore above to see a brief look at their efforts to use the iPhone 6+ one handed.
