    Picked up the 6 this morning, no pre-order or anything. Showed up like 30 mins before open and just hung out with some people.

    IDK how I feel about it yet, honestly. I'll wait to get used to it. I am not used to the size of it though.

    Only the 6? It felt comfortable for me, but the plus felt really awkward

    I'm going with the note 4 or iphone6+ next. Probably the note 4 depending on the camera. There's this new manufacturer called one plus one. The video camera on the phone looks like a fucking go pro in quality. 4k resolution video.

    My bro got one. Says the camera on it is unreal. And it's 300 bucks unsubsidized

    The cases I've got for my past 3 iPhones and my iPad are made by this small metal company. I get 4 or 5 compliments a day on them. Contacted them asking about when their case for the 6 will be available and they got back to me and said that they made no money from making them, so they will no longer be available. So I need to find something to protect it, but that I like.

    Google Chrome is about 5x faster than safari on my iPad. Fwiw.

    Yeah the 6 is plenty big. I agree with the 6+ feeling uncomfortable and bulky.

    Tried it. But even switching applications was slow and menu animations. Everything seemed cluttered and ios7 is fine for me. I had ios8 on for less than an hour and I didn't like it at all... felt like using a sluggish windows xp operating system

    Others were having wifi problems.

    I also like to have an easily accessible bookmarks bar. On chrome it is a pill to get to. The moving of the safari bookmark bar to the left side of the screen annoyed the hell out of me.

    People I know who ordered the 6+ are expressing shock at the size of the thing. Holy shit, it's huge!

    Insert Mrs. HCP joke.
