I'd have to see them in person to make that decision... from the pictures, 5.5 doesn't look that big and may work just fine. Then again, both kind of look like galaxy S5... so I don't know.

I really like the resolution on the 6+ but not the size. Coming from a Samsung note 2, I really hated the size of it!

Have they confirmed battery specs?

I keep reading the 6plus has a better battery which is obviously necessary for increased screen size, but when comparing all things relative, they're saying the 6plus battery is still better than iPhone 6.

can't find specs but i did find this

And speaking of power, you'll be able to squeeze 16 hours of standby time out of the 6 Plus, 14 hours of continual video playback and or a full 24 hours of 3G talk time out of the non-removable battery.

I'm going to pass and pick up the iPhone 6S+ next year. My Galaxy S5 will have to do until then.

I'll upgrade to a 6S most likely. Only because I'm comfortable with iOS and I don't need an unlocked OS to customize. I use my phone to browse blogs and use social media apps aside from obvious basic functions. A new phone usually just means that I can do this shit a little faster and for a longer period until the battery runs out.

With that said, not impressed. It's just another incremental upgrade.

Wut? They are offering the 64GB for the same price as they've offered 32GB all along. If you were a 32GB customer, shut up and enjoy the free extra storage.

LOL...everyone always complains they're not "impressed" with their new phones when they're released because they thought it was somehow going to be a microwave/toaster oven/massager/washing machine.

What exactly would it have taken to impress you? A new innovative cone shaped or spherical phone? Hexagon?

Hell if I know dude, I'm not the one getting paid to create something innovative. If it was something that revolutionized the way I used my phone then I would be impressed. Otherwise it's an expected improvement which isn't something that should impress me in the first place.

Like I said, it'll let me take pretty photos and browse forums and shit more efficiently. I'll probably buy in once my contract expires in about a year.

Don't confuse "not impressed" with complaining.
