Even people who like big phones were surprised by the large size of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. I stood two blocks from the White House in downtown Washington, D.C., and asked people to give me their first impressions after holding Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

When one man tested the iPhone 6 Plus’s fit in his shirt pocket, I had to ask for it back. Oh, the perils of technology reporting.
These new iPhones will be available this Friday, Sept. 19. Read our Re/code team’s full reviews of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8 and third-party keyboard apps.
