Carrying an iphone 6+ around wdw?

I recently got my hands on an iPhone 6+ and it feels a bit to big for me. I have two major fears regarding the size of the phone (1) exercising with the phone on me, and (2) carrying this phone around wdw.

Anyone find that carrying this 6 plus is not an issue, more specifically carrying this size phone around wdw? Do you have issues with it in your pocket when going on the coasters?

Anyways, I am tempted to return for the smaller phone.

My phone is actually larger than the iphone6...and we're here at WDW now. I love having the larger screen for everyday life and it's great here in WDW also, when using MDE in the parks, reading a book while waiting in line, lol.

Everyone's take on phone size/weight is very personal....my hubby hates my phone and wouldn't even consider something so large, despite his "getting old" eyes having more trouble reading on his small phone.

I would think about how this phone works for you MOST of the time...i.e. work, play, homelife and not just about how it works for you at what is likely a few weeks of the year on vacation. If it's too large and awkward for you everyday, then obviously it's not the right phone for you.

I have carried my phone into WDW in my pocket, but I am not 100% comfortable with that, because it is large and does stick out of my pocket. I prefer to carry it in a small purse around my neck, like on a lanyward. I made mine to fit my phone and to have fun fabric, but in a pinch you can purchase a purse almost anywhere. Here is a quick search I did at Amazon....you can get ones that will also carry a few credit cards and/or cash so you don't need anything else.

I can't tell from your ID if you're a guy or gal...but even if you are a guy, there are a few nice leather cases at the above link that may work for a guy.

Don't return it!!! The 6plus is awesome I'm looking forward to using mine on out next trip bc I won't be hunting for outlets to charge my phone! The battery on the plus is awesome!!!

I carry mine in a wristlet, but it's no good for running....I'm asking for one of those foldover belts for Christmas...maybe that would work for you?

Two trips, 9 park days with my 6+ ... never a problem.

FWIW, mine was delivered on release day and felt "normal sized" within a few days.

I have the 6+ also and never even thought it might be an issue. I think it wouldn't be different than any phone really. It took me just a couple days (if that) to get accustomed to using it, but I LOVE it. Just always be careful with it, and don't pull it out when you're on Space Mountain

I love my 6+! I have a bag though, so I never stick it in my pocket for rides. My pockets are too small and it would hang half out. Bring a bag and stick it in there or perhaps ask someone you're with who has deeper pockets to carry it for you on certain rides.

My coworker has a 6S. Based on seeing/handling it, if you don't have a bag to put it into, I'd probably look for cargo pants or shorts and put it in one of the leg pockets with a button on it. He said having it in his back pocket is really uncomfortable, and I'd probably worry it would slip out.

I have a Note 3, which I believe is slightly larger than a 6+, and I've had no problems with it in the parks. Obviously a matter of personal preference, though...

I got the 6, the plus is the size of a small tablet, not my style. Just don’t put it in your back pocket if you do decide to keep it.

I got the 6 and the size is perfect! The 6 plus might be too big for me but that's a personal preference, I'm sure you're be fine

I ordered my 6 Plus almost 2 months ago and I'm hoping I'll get it before my trip. My DBF has one and I'm itching to get mine! I can't wait to have 4G again (I've been using my old 4 sing I dropped my 5 in my pool about 18 months ago) and have the larger screen. I wouldn't return it. You'll get used to the size.
