Re: Another release
Yes Kelly22 and I would reiterate that companies other than apple do have products in multiple sizes but the problem is if you want to buy a phone with latest processor or hardware capacity, you can only buy the one with larger screen size. All other models which are smaller in size (like with the name mini) have less attractive specification. For me this is a big plus and only offered by apple.

Re: Another release
@Angelfuego: I absolutely agree with you, this has been a case with me quite often where I have regretted my decision. I think the first mistake if always necessary to set your direction and especially to identify what you really wants. This is also they reason why sometimes a product have good sales figures initially but fails in the end as people learns from their mistakes.

Re: Blurry Lines
@asksqn it really is, and no doubt the iPad mini sales are suffering as a result of larger iPhones. I think when the phone becomes impossible to hold in one hand and you can't squeeze it in your pocket, might as well call it a tablet.

Apple has to ask itself - At what dimension does the iPhone become a tablet? Seems to me the phone is well on its way to becoming a tablet.

Re: Another release
One of the reasons I loved my 4s was due to the small size, when I upgraded, it seemed no other manufacturers had a small one that was close, so ended up biting the bullet and going with a standard size Android, and later, back to the 5s.  I don't see why they feel offering a smaller version, especially since many folks still lament the days of having a smaller device, means it should be a cheaper device.  I get that it opens room for the lower-cost markets, but still, I would love to see a fully-featured smaller device instead of the current lineups which for someone with smaller hands like me, means I can barely hold it in one hand.

Re: Another release
@Nomii I'm bummed to learn that Apple won't be shrinking the 6, but you're right - at least the company still offers multiple sizes to those who want smaller phones. I know big phones are the trend but think some providers should offer a larger range of sizes.

Re: Another release
@Nomii, i don't think anyone is blaming Apple. I think its great that Apple provides options for consumers based uoin their preference for the screen size. Its a wise,marketing strategy that appeals to customers that have differing preferences. The person I was referring to blames herself and not Apple for purchasing the larger screem as opposed to the smaller size. I think we can all relate to buying something and then regretting it.

Re: Another release
@Angelfuego: I would not blame apple for the wrong selection of the phone. Apple gives multiple size options to their customers from which they can select the one they like the best. If you are not big screen lover than 6 plus is not for you but the good thing about apple is that they offer other sizes with same specs, unlike other manufacturers.

Re: Another release
@[email protected], I was curious about which sold more, the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 plus? I guess you just answered my question. However, I wonder how many of those that purchased the 6 plus were happy with their decision. I only know 2 people that have the plus. One of them told me that she loves it and the other one told me that she hates it. I asked her why and she told me that the phone is just too big. She said it doesn't completely fit in her pocket, the phone covers the whole side of her face when she talks oin it, and that too many people can see what she is typing or looking at on her phone. She said this is especially true of people looking at her big screen on the train.

Re: Another release
I thought the same too but the acceptance and sales of 6 plus tell a different story.
