the main difference is the size, the 6 plus is massive.

if you aren't absolutely sure you want a phablet, then you want the iphone 6

Iphone 6 is 4.7 inches, 6+ is 5.5 inches. being a user of a phone of a similar size to the Iphone 6, I can say it is a good size, the 6+ is too much for most users and not very pocketable.

if you use Iphone but saw a Galaxy Note 3 and thought to yourself "wow I want a phone that huge" then you probably want the 6+, which has the same screen size and resolution but a larger chin and forehead(top and bottom bezels)

if you think that's simply too large, which most people do including me, then the 6 is a perfect size IMO

 

from the perspective of a Samsung Galaxy S4 user, which is similar in size to the Iphone 6

6, the 6+ doesnt offer any additional features that justify the massive size.

You can do one of two things:

1) Get an iPhone. Do this if you have to get an iPhone, or want iOS, or have a Mac, or are an Apple fanboy. Then go to Best Buy and play around with the two phones to decide which one you like better. (Although I wouldn't suggest buying anything there as nobody there knows what they're talking about :P) I know that since I like bigger screens, I'd go with the 6+. The iPhone 6+ also has a better screen (the human eye CAN see above 300ppi, Cultofmac proved it was AT LEAST 900ppi, and I think Linus even did a Techquickie video on this subject), Optical Image Stabilization and longer battery life, but IMO iOS doesn't make proper use of that huge screen.

ATTENTION: IF YOU ARE AN APPLE FANBOY, STOP READING HERE. IF YOU ARE DEAD SET ON BUYING THE NEWEST OVERPRICED BLINGY FASHION STATEMENT IPHONE, I'VE SAID ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. IF YOU ARE REMOTELY INTERESTED IN OTHER OSS, THOUGH, PROCEED.

2) If you don't need the aforementioned things and aren't bought into iOS, explore around, looking at Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry (JK, nobody uses Blackberry or Windows Phone anymore, except your wannabe-tech-savvy grandpa :P). Android is a wonderful thing, and most of the people who call it out for being "laggy" and "crashy" haven't used Android since '09 (when those statements where true), have only ever used TouchWiz (although it gets a LOT more hate than it deserves) or only used a budget phone. (Well, DUH it's laggy. My iPhone 4 absolutely HATES iOS 7 as much as my iPad 3 hates iOS 8. Old tech = lag and crashes) Android is more for people like me who LOVE to take their phone/tablet/watch/smartglasses/TV/car entertainment system they paid hard-earned cash for and make it truly personal, to fine tune it exactly how they want it. When Apple sells you a phone, it's like their saying: "Here, you just bought this $750 phone! Now don't jailbreak, try to arrange apps like on a Mac/Windows desktop, customize anything but the wallpaper, explore files or connect it to an Android Wear watch. You pay for our device, but you can ONLY use it within this walled garden we've set up." When Google sells you a phone, it's more like "Here, take this and do whatever the heck you want with it. You DID just pay $750 for it, after all."

There are drawbacks to Android, of course. There are countless phones, tablets, desktops and everything in between running Android, with varing support. So there's a greater chance of your device being left behind. This is called fragmentation. This also happens to a lesser extent on iOS, like how the iPhone 4 never got Siri, or how the iPad 3 can't use Continuity on iOS 8. The interface is not quite as smooth as iOS's, although it's gotten MUCH better since '08. There's also more malware, although if you have antivirus software and common sense, you'll be safe 95% of the time (I'd say ~80% of malware requires root to run). Those are just a few of Android's imperfections, but the positives far, FAR outweigh the negatives. That's why my phone of choice is the upcoming Note 4.

Whew!

I would wait for the 6s and 6s plus series. They are always better. To much #gateshit going on with the 6 series. Or wait a few months until they fix what ever is wrong with the production.

It really depends on the size of your hands really.  The 6+ is definitely unruly to people who are not used to phablets, but the 1080p screen means that in my eyes, its way better for the consumption of media (Apple's media mind you, not your own D:).  My suggestions to people looking to buy the new iPhones, go to the store. Just go inside and play with the units, it doesn't beat real-world usage but it can give you first impressions on the feel in your hand.

Besides the size, the 6 plus has a better camera and I believe a better battery life.

Actually, Samsung WANTS them to be status symbols/fashion statements, but they really aren't.

"OHMIGOSH, IS THAT THE NEW NOTE 4!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! THAT'S LIKE, TOTALLY SO MUCH COOLER THAN MY GOLD IPHONE 6!!!!!"

Does that sound like something the average image-concious popular teenage girl would say?

The difference is that iPhones really ARE status symbols/fashion statements. Should that affect your buying decisions? If all you care about is being popular and/or you are a narcissist, then yes. :) I'm strongly against the thinking that a smartphone, which I feel should be a tool, should be blingy. They should look GOOD, but not to the point of being jewelry. Smartwatches, on the other hand...

Actually, it's gotten to the point where I can't talk friends out of getting the S5 over the m8 or 5s. People are just blindly getting the S5 because everyone else has it.

Well, I'd get the S5 over the M8 or 5S, mostly because I don't like iOS or software buttons. I also like how the S5 feels better in the hand (it's not tiny like the 5S or too narrow like the M8), although the band-aid back is horrible. The camera is WAY better than the HTC's, but it's arguable as to if it's better than the 5S's.

Just because they want to buy something you don't want them to doesn't mean they are blind or sheep.

(BTW, real friends don't let friends buy 8+ month old phones :P :P :P)
