Why I Returned My iPhone 6

As I recently wrote in a Macworld article, Why I’m returning my iPhone 6 (well, maybe), Apple’s latest phone just doesn’t work for me. When I wrote the article, I was still on the fence, but this morning, I’ve returned the iPhone 6.

I found it interesting that a large number of commenters to the Macworld article agreed with me. I thought I would seem like a curmudgeon, but I’ve been hearing from many people by email, and on social media, that they, too, just don’t find the iPhone 6 to be to their liking.

The only reason is its size. My iPhone is a very personal device, one that I carry with me most of the time, and one that is a link to the world, whether by phone or text (which I actually use very little), or by email, Twitter and other services. For me, the iPhone allows me, in part, to not be at my desk all the time. As a freelancer working at home, I like the freedom I have to not work set hours, and having the iPhone in my pocket means that if something urgent comes up, I can be notified, and get back home.

I used the iPhone 6 for a week; I went back to the iPhone 5s on Friday, to see if I really liked it better. And I did. This may be because of its familiarity; it’s a comfortable size. I can hold it comfortably in one hand, and do most of what I need with just one hand. The iPhone 6, however, felt alien, as though it was just not the right size for my hand. Granted, iPhones have always been smaller (I don’t consider the taller display of the iPhone 5 and 5s to be that different from previous models), so the iPhone 6 was very new. But it just wasn’t right for me.

I’ve always bought unlocked iPhones, and I’ve bought them from Apple, so I have the option of returning them within 14 days. I appreciate Apple’s return policy that allows me to try out a new device. I’ve never returned any Apple products for this reason before; I’ve exchanged defective Macs, but never sent back something I simply didn’t like.

In the latest episode of my podcast, The Committed, our guest, Christina Warren, asked if I wouldn’t feel tech lust not having the latest iPhone for a year. I don’t think I will; it’s a wonderful device, but there’s nothing really compelling in the iPhone 6 that I’ll miss, other than the ability to have 128 GB, so I can store more music on my device. Sure, the display is a bit nicer, the camera a bit better, but if the device isn’t comfortable to use, then what’s the point?

This will be the first time I’ve kept an iPhone for two years. I’ll certainly upgrade next year, to the iPhone 6s or 7, whichever model they release. I may not have a choice next year, and may have to choose a larger iPhone. But I think with the number of people who still want a smaller model, Apple is likely to offer three sizes with the next iPhone. We’ll know in a year.

  1. Wow. I could copy and paste this, make minimal edits (6 Plus versus 6, for example) and this article would mirror my experiences. It’s 4AM Monday here in Los Angeles, but later today I’ll move the SIM back to the 5s and pack up the 6. I’ve been using the 5s for everything but phone calls all weekend.

    One additional related fact that surprised myself. I recently went on a non business pleasure trip to Toronto for 7 days. I brought my iPhone 5s, my MacBook Pro and my iPad [mainly for my brother]. My brother never used the iPad, we used the MacBook Pro for a whole 20 minutes for him to easily fill out a Social Security form he had to, but I never used either device. I did all my “computing” on my iPhone. That included heave email and Twitter, and lots of web browsing and planning our trips for the next day.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences.

    • One thing to point out about the 6 Plus. If you already carry a tablet with you, and use it a lot, I can see using the 6 Plus to replace both an iPhone and an iPad. There may be many people in that situation, but that’s not my case.

  3. I think Apple will refresh the 4″ phone form-factor next year. They have reason to (people like you) and no real reason not to. There should be no problem in selling three phone sizes, especially given their determination to sell watches in six different materials.

    18 months ago Apple patented a phone with virtualized buttons (1.usa.gov/1uaePNw). Given Apple’s new use of a flexible (apparently OLED) Retina display on its watch with Force Touch implemented with electrodes surrounding the display, it’s not hard to imagine that Apple could make a phone with the screen of the 5s but in a form-factor that’s the size of the original iPhone (or even a bit smaller) with a virtualized Force Touch home button.

    The cost/price of such a phone is unknown – on one hand the cost of 4″ displays is crashing, on the other the additional, new technology is surely expensive to implement right now. So, we might see an iPhone Nano, but it mightn’t be a cheap/free phone. Just as the iPod Touch isn’t updated well or regularly, next year we might see the continuation of an unchanged 5c as a ‘free’ phone while Apple adds a sexy new, smaller and faster iPhone Nano 7 using the latest processors.

    • They list it as a “T-Mobile – No Contract” product, but it’s actually an unlocked phone. There’s been discussions about having to ask T-Mobile to “unlock” it, but all you have to do is put your own SIM in it, and that’s it. In a few days or weeks, you’ll see another one listed as “SIM Free”, but they both have the same model number.

  5. I’m on a 4-day trip to Las Vegas. I left my MacBook Air at home, and only have my iPhone 6 Plus with me. The size and weight are perfect for me!

    • Yes, as I say in a comment above, I can see the 6 Plus replacing a phone and iPad or laptop. It’s like an iPad mini mini, but with phone service. But that’s a different use case.

  7. Like you, I’m holding onto my 5s. I really like the 4″ size, and also the 6 isn’t compelling enough for me to dump a one-year old phone. I also pay full price for my iPhones (no contracts), and like to get at least two years out of them. I always look forward to the improvements the “s” models bring. I left a comment on Macworld about I mainly use mine for music storage also, so I know it hurts to give up that 128 GB (grin). We’ll see what happens next year.

    • In the past, I sold my year-old phones. After a year, you still get a good price for a used iPhone; after two years, not so much. But I didn’t find anyone to buy it before I ordered the 6, unlike in previous years, which turns out to have been a good thing.

      • That worked out good for you this time πŸ˜‰ Yes, you can always get a good price for a one-year old iPhone. But, mine get passed down to my wife, so there’s not a lot of economic incentive there, ha-ha! When she got my old 4s, her 3gs went to a relative who is still using it and loves it. By the time she gets my 5s, I’ll probably just keep her 4s and turn into a “Touch”. I loved the 4s, it was a great phone and I never had a bit of trouble from it. And, it’s not like it’s going to be worth a whole lot by then (grin).

  9. Very interesting Kirk. As someone who only buys new phones when I can upgrade with a 2 year contract, I won’t be buying one until at least May or June. I’ve always wanted a larger iPhone for the display, but wonder about the fit and feel in my hand. My iPhone 4 fit neatly in a front vest pocket for work. The iPhone 5 sticks out a bit. The 6 would surely necessitate a hip case or holster. That seems bulky. Your point about Apple offering 3 sizes is spot on imo. I’m also wondering what the end result of bendgate will be.

    • If you can’t get a new one until May or June, I’d wait until the fall for the next model. Just saying…

      • Point taken. I got my current iPhone 5 on June 29 of last year. I suppose I can wait and see what the next announcement brings. That begs the question do I become an early adopter of the newest one in the Fall of next year. I’ve always hesitated. Look at the goings on with the new iPhone now. The good news is that I can stay put for a while and let the dust settle. Maybe the headphone jack will go away by then, rendering my current options somewhat obsolete.

        • The nice thing about next year’s model, if Apple continues to follow their past, is it’s basically an improvement on the last model. So, you’ll get the current design, plus any fixes and/or improvements to the current model. That’s why I prefer being on the “tock” of the tick-tock cycle.

  11. My favorite model, form-factor wise, has been the 4s. If Apple could get 128gb of ram and all the new chip sets into it, I’d love it. Currently using the 5s.

    • I prefer the taller form factor, especially because there’s more room for the keyboard. That’s even more useful now with iOS 8’s predictive keyboard, and it’s row of suggestions.

  13. Great Article! It’s surprising that more people aren’t writing about this.

    If you’ve still got an old 3GS or earlier, I’d encourage you to take it out and hold it in your hand. Note how comfortable it feels in your hand and how easy it is to reach every inch of that screen. IMHO, the iPhone would not have been a success without that comfort.

    Unfortunately, the people in charge of Apple these days, don’t agree. This move to the bigger screen is a natural progression of the Jony Ives redesign of iOS last year. The main theme of that iOS7 redesign was, “Defer To Content”.

    That means that it is more important to ‘view’ content than it is to ‘act’ on it, and iOS7 enforced that goal. Content was made more prominent at the expense of navigating between that content. The primary purpose of the iPhone was altered from a productivity & messaging device to a media consumption device.

    Now, the hardware has followed suit. The bigger screen is just another example of ‘Deferring to Content’ at the expense of navigation and productivity. It’s really too bad for those of us who liked the old iPhone.

    That all being said, Apple did recognize the issue with the ‘Back’ button last year, and they added the new back & forward (ie swipe) gestures to handle that problem, at least. If you run the iOS Settings app or Safari, you can see how these work. Rather than tapping on the Back button in those apps, just swipe to the right from the left edge of the screen in order to go ‘back’.

    Eventually, you’ll see other app-developers start to incorporate these gestures, and you’ll also see apps that have the main controls on the bottom. Microsoft’s OWA app is a good example of the latter.

    Anyway, thanks for the article. It’s good to know there are other folks like me out there.

  15. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I’m in a very similar situation, except that I’m poor, so I only upgrade every three years. This means that this is a much bigger decision for me. True, I might be able to sell my 6 and buy a 64GB 5S for roughly the same price, but I don’t want to count on that.

    You had a lot of commenters in the MacWorld article asking why you would want to use a phone one-handed. Well, I am having trouble using it *two* handed. I do a lot of typing on my iPhone in Landscape mode, and it’s just not as comfortable on the 6. Things are better now that I’ve gone to Zoomed view, but it’s still not quite as comfy as my 4S; I have to stretch some, and it slows down my typing. Maybe a 3rd party keyboard would help; I dunno.

    Regardless, thanks again.

    On another note, the threaded comments on this article are getting cut off on the right side on my iPhone 6 in both portrait and landscape mode in Safari and Chrome.

  17. This confirms, I really wish Apple would have gone with 4.3″. What were they thinking jumping from 4″ to 4.7″?????? (5.5 is too big to even be considered a phone anymore).

  19. I actually preferred the size of the iPhone 4 screen, specifically because it is easier to use one-handed.
    It’s always seemed funny to me that the trend with mobile phones was always smaller-is-better until smartphones appeared in our lives.

  21. Did the same. Returned my iPhone 6 after using for a week, now back to my much comfortable iPhone 5. Hoping apple to come back with smaller size phone next year!

    • Everyone who is returning their iPhone 6 because it’s too big should leave feedback to that effect at http://apple.com/feedback/iphone.html , explaining what you’re doing, why, and what size phone you would prefer (for me, a 4.3″ would be ideal). That way, Apple may learn its lesson here and offer smaller phones next year.

  23. I’m headed to ATT this afternoon to swap out the 6 for the 5s. I upgraded form the 5. I just cant adjust to the size. The 5 5s are the perfect size for one handed use.

  25. I loved the 4S and when I got the 5S, there was a bit of an adjustment period. After that, I always marveled at how nice the 5S felt in my hand, and could use it one-handed, but in hindsight the 4S was perfect for one-handed use. I have relatively small hands, but with the 4S, I could reach all areas of the screen with no problem. I have the 6 now, and there’s a lot to like about it: much better cellular radio, better camera, more screen real estate for my aging eyes…but certainly diminished one-handed use. Fact is, though, one-handed use made up about 10% of total use even when I had the 4S. So I’m sticking to the 6. Also looking forward to Apple Pay, which I think I’ll use a great deal, particularly as more and more vendors support it.

  27. Great article, Kirk. I’ve had a 6 for a week now (up from a 5) and I’m on the verge of bailing on the 6. I feel like it’s this thing I’m lugging around. I always wanted smaller, thinner, lighter, and I got bigger, wider, heavier. The thinner 6 is barely thinner than the 5s. I use my iPhone primarily as a phone, clock, email, text, weather, directions, and calls. That’s it. I don’t play games, or surf the web much. I have an iPad Mini and a MacBook Pro for all of that. Your article really helped me grapple with this. Probably going the same route as you. One question: I love the voLTE technology for calls. The 6 and 6 Plus have voLTE turned on for Verizon, but I’m hoping they’ll do that for the 5s soon too. Any thoughts on that from you? I’d hate to lose that call quality. Thanks!

    • I’m afraid I can’t help you there; I’m in the UK, and I don’t even have LTE coverage where I live.

    • I don’t have inside information, but it was my impression that VoLTE is a hardware feature of the iPhone 6, which means that it will never be possible on lesser iPhones. Our only hope is to wish for an iPhone 6 Minus next year.

      • I’m no tech, but I believe the 5s has voLTE built in. T-mobile has turned it on, but Verizon hes not as of yet. I can’t swear to this, but it is my understanding.

  29. I think you took too little time to get comfortable with iPhone 6. Like you I am a fan of iPhone 5s and was skeptical to buy iPhone 6. I bought iphone 6 and at first I was not comfortable but it took more than couple of weeks to get used to it. I gotta admit with iphone 5s I had some trouble browsing certain pages as I had to zoom in and out in order to read but with iphone 6 i dont have to do that. Coming to screen size, I did not find it difficult to use with one hand. With iphone 6 plus, yes one handed operation is impossible. I think it all comes down to choices and letting go. You are not ready to let go of the old one and you have a choice of 5s still and here you are :).

    • Funny. I kept the 6. Having some problems with it, but we erased the sfotware and reinstalled. Hopefully that solved it. Getting used to it. The primary reason I kept it was because the call quality with voLTE is unreal. Ten times better than it was with CDMA. I figured I could get used to it, and now I have no choice. Pretty cool device actually. Still wish they had a version of the 6 with a 4-inch screen, but this works just fine. I made a few adjustments and I’m good.

  31. Hi there. I also returned my iPhone 6. After two days of using it I felt it is just does not feel like the right phone for me. I’m an owner of an iphone 4 and I have been waiting to replace it with a more advanced/fast/larger capacity phone and each time I said to my self let’s wait for the iPhone 6.
    But it is just too big, too thin and too light to feel like a phone…
    And it’s phisical proportions are wrong in my opinion.
    My new 64 GB iPhone 6 is been sitting in the cupboard for the past 4 days, waiting for apple delivery to come by and pick it back.
    I’m so happy with my iPhone 4. It’s just becoming slow and limited…
    My new iPhone 5S is Orleans on its way.

    • Cool. I just read a rumor that Apple will do what I think they shold have done before: offer a new iPhone 6 mini in a 4 inch screen. I kept my 6, but I know I’m gonna be envious if that mini comes out next year. Oh well.

  32. Hi there. I also returned my iPhone 6. After two days of using it I felt it is just does not feel like the right phone for me. I’m an owner of an iphone 4 and I have been waiting to replace it with a more advanced/fast/larger capacity phone and each time I said to my self let’s wait for the iPhone 6.
    But it is just too big, too thin and too light to feel like a phone…
    And it’s phisical proportions are wrong in my opinion.
    My new 64 GB iPhone 6 is been sitting in the cupboard for the past 4 days, waiting for apple delivery to come by and pick it back.
    I’m so happy with my iPhone 4. It’s just becoming slow and limited…

  33. I also just simply can not get used to the new size of iPhone 6. Using it, made me feel anxious and uncomfortable. I just returned my new iPhone 6 today and will keep using my iPhone5. I am a working mum, and being able to hold my iPhone in one hand is crucial for my daily functioning. I feel a bit let down by Apple – as if they ignored one whole part of the population. I really hope that the rumour is true and that they make iPhone 6 mini ! if not, I am not sure what my options are πŸ™
    All the best,

  35. I’m selling my iPhone 6 after used for 4 months. Going back to the 5s. I agree with most people. The 6 doesn’t feel good in hand. The 5s is the best fit for most people.

  37. I just did the same with my brand new 6S model. Back to 5S. No regrets.

    Wrote an email to apple to tell them there is a large set of 4″ phone users who aren’t happy.
