Even flow - the iPhone 6 Plus sells at an almost equal pace to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 at T-Mobile

Previously, we reported the iPhone 6 Plus sells as much as six times better than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, but the phablet is considered "more engaging", meaning customers tend to spend more time with it. But just a day after, we learned that the iPhone 6 Plus could eventually account for a whopping 60% of all iPhone 6 units sold in China. There are passengers for every train, it seems.
Anyway, this is good news for Apple, which must be seeing the writing on the wall and adjusting the manufacturing ratio from an original 70:30 iPhone 6 to iPhone 6 Plus to a new 55:45 ratio. Although the phablet is a little harder to find in Apple stores right now, production should catch up to demand soon enough.

Seems all that pent up frustration with the small "perfect for one-handed use, ideal screen size" is being released.

Or it could be the better specs of the bigger model.

Well I wouldn't expect the Apple crowd to be going for specs alone, since they so vehemently fought against the notion of more specs=better for consumer paradigm. I thought they liked their modest upgrades because that is all they need and Apple knows best.

You are right. Introduce things when it's right, not just for sake of selling specs. I'll take a lower spec phone if it means it's designed to work together from the ground up instead of throwing absolutely everything together and hope the duck tape holds.

Positives of iPhone 6+: A lot bigger battery- quite a bit longer batterry life. Bigger, slightly denser display, which will benefit the software. OIS Negatives of iPhone 6+: A bit thicker, a lot heavier. 100$ more expansive. Worse on-screen GPU performance (better gaming battery life though). I think that both iPhones are nicelly balanced and it all boils down to screen size preference.

I do hope Apple continues with the iPhone 5 form factor: there is a real market out there for a compact phone - and any phone with a screen size of 4 inches is nowadays definitely a compact - and on the smaller side of that ledger too. Sure, it will not sell as well as the larger sizes...but there are a LOT of people for whom a truly compact premium form is perfect...and one by Apple is even more so. I would imagine at least a solid 20 million annual sales if they keep up to date hardware. Not a lot by Apple standards...but enough to be more than a solid business case.

Even flow, Thoughts arrive like butterflies. He don't know, So he chases them away. Someday, yeah, He'll begin his life again. Whispering hands, Come and lead him away, Lead him away, Him away. YEAH! woo! Aw yeah! I was just listening to that song yesterday morning. Pearl Jam is the frickin' best.

Now they just need to deliver. I had ordered an iPhone 6 Plus back on the 20th of September and still have no phone.
