    My brother got an iPhone 6 and it looks nice and i tested it out and like it. But it doesnt feel too comfortable and safe in the hand. Holding the 5s/5 just feels right. Even thought apple implanted that double tap the homebutton to make the icons come lower to the screen, it just doesnt work lol. I feel that appl should’ve kept the 6 4inches. Now i’m having a hard time about if i should get a 5s or a 6 because of the fact that iOS 8 will run smoother on i6 obviously and also has an A8 chip.

    the iPhone 6 feels pretty good on my hands with a super thin case free from amazon. I can’t help but notice that the mute button feels funny. flipping it off is ok, but flipping it back on feels too easy. I don’t think it’s defective though. nothing extreme, but funny feeling on the mute switch.
