Default Anyone here own and game on a 6 plus?

I saw one at launch and thought it was too big. But after getting Note 4 and loving it I used a 6 plus and love it! Games like final fantasy 3, chrono trigger look MUCH better on the 6 plus over the 6 because of the more rectangle aspect ratio the 6 offers. I do more internet/gaming/reading on my iPhone anyways over using it as a phone and I really do think the 6 plus enhances the experience. It's not like I'm squinting my eyes on the 6, but the 6 plus is enough to not make me I wish I had my iPad mini instead on downtimes while on the go.

I'm pretty sure the 6 and the 6+ have the same aspect ratio as one another, which is the same or close to the 5.

I have it. I like it for gaming, but hate it for everything else because I can't use it in one hand (nor can I use the smaller 6). Apple is now just like every other phone manufacturer where the only phones they sell with a normal screen size are yesteryear's technology. If Apple had gone with a 6 mini/minus, with the same processor, same battery, and same camera as in the 6 plus, but a normal screen size, I would've jumped on that like white on rice. For gaming, at least my fingers don't cover up as much of the screen while playing, so there's that... I'd really like for more apps to get updated to native resolution, because they're really gorgeous when they are, and they stick out like a sore thumb when they aren't.

I absolutely love it. I had an iPad air and gave it to my wife because my 6 plus literally replaced it. I love being able to whip out my fav games on say a 15 min break at work if I want. On my iPad I wouldnt be able to do that. In my opinion its the best gaming IOS device I have ever had.

Love the 6 Plus, for games* and everything else! I used to use my old iPhone one-handed sometimes, but it's not vital to me. (And still possible on the 6+ when necessary, just not something you'd do regularly.) Great screen, super battery, and I can live with the pocket awkwardness.

* BUT the iPhone 6 Plus (and maybe other models when upgraded to iOS 8) seems to have SERIOUS problems if you collect a lot of games or apps: more than a couple hundred apps installed (the number varies) and the iPhone becomes a brick. Not exaggerating--constant reboots. I was unable to restore my old iPhone's backup without leaving my 6 Plus way too crashy to use, and thus I had to set up as a new device, losing all my game progress and non-cloud documents. For now, I have re-installed a limited set of games (mainly brand-new ones) and can appreciate having a rock-stable phone.

Hopefully Apple will fix this bug soon, and then I can restore ALL my old stuff again. I have around 1000 apps, mostly games, and I want them back! (I've heard that if you have this problem you can delete a bunch of apps and the ones that remain will work OK. But amid the once-a-minute crashes that would be difficult, especially since the home screen itself crashes most of all. Besides, there aren't many games in my collection I really want to delete. And I intend to keep adding!)

I only have a 64gb and a handful off apps so I don't think I'll run into that issue unless I decided to go all out with my collection. I do agree that battery is outstanding, I love being able to use the iPhone moderately throughout the day and still have half or less than half a battery charge the end of the day! I actually felt the plus was too huge at launch, but after giving it a chance, there's no way I'll go back to a regular sized phone. This is that much better for video, browsing and gaming. I actually sold my mini because this is big enough for me to not miss it, and if I do get another iPad in the future then it will definitely be the newest Air. As for the one handed use, I do find it annoying to force myself to use 2 hands on the go when I want to check something real quick, but the trade off is more than worth it to have a mini tablet sized screen in my pocket.

At first when I first saw it, it look so huge but after using it for a couple days it feels so small now. And the 5S looks like a mini twix bar now :3

The limit varies. 300 does not surprise me. My 1000 apps were fine on iPhone 5, but crash the home screen itself on 6 Plus. Some people have deleted apps down to 700 or so before the device will function; others have problems with even lower numbers.

This is the same issue where there was speculation about bad memory chips, although I personally think it sounds like a software issue.
