Anyone waiting in line for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus? Mine is scheduled for delivery this afternoon. There will be pictures!

Report back here anyone getting a new phone...

Now that I've been able to use the phone, my main reaction is that I love the screen size.
I picked up my old 4S and wow it seems so small by comparison.

If you have an extra hundred bucks to spend, buying the 64GB instead of the 16GB wouldn't be a bad move.

I never got a case for my 4S in the three years I had it.
I may need one with this phone. It feels more slippery in hand.

This phone is fast. Everything seems to open much quicker... web pages, apps, etc.

Hopefully in less than a month, I can officially get the iPhone 6. I had thoughts about the 6+, but after reading some reports like this iPhone 6 Plus size vs iPhone 6: Why I might return Apple's giant new iPhone. I will just stick with the 6.
The plus is definitely not as big as I pictured it. The thinness makes it look smaller than it is, but the screen size eclipses my 5S by a lot. That's what I'm shooting for, that and upgraded camera and better battery life.

For the fun of it, I checked out a few stores today, if they by chance had any more iPhone 6 in stock. Most stores in Phoenix, still have plenty of the gold iPhone 6 in stock, but I am not interested in that one. But my local AT&T store, said they should get a shipment in next Friday and I can pre-order one now. So that what I did and next Friday I could possibly receive my iPhone 6? I order, the iPhone 6 64 GB space gray.

My pre-order still says 3 or 4 weeks. October 13 is the first possible delivery date. Since there are zero iPhone 6 pluses available locally I'll just wait until then.

I found this on 9to5mac.com, which shows the best case covers for the iPhone 6 and 6+.

I have a Speck CandyShell case for my 5 right now, but I'm looking into upgrade a better case.

When I get my 6 hopefully this week, I will need a case soon and so far I kinda like the look of this one. It normally cost $40, but it on sale for $13.99.

Lots of gold? The gold one was hardest to find when the iPhone 5S came out.

Heavy day of usage today with the iPhone 6.. started the day with 100% battery, now down to 52%.
I can totally live with that. With my old phone, I would have charged it an additional 20% on the way home from work and still been much closer to empty.

Also, ran a speed test on it.
Download speeds on LTE were between 18 and 26 Mbps.
The old phone was getting me around 4 Mbps on 3G. :eek:
