    I've been refreshing my FedEx tracking page every 30 minutes. I was hoping to be able to run home during lunch to pick it up, but it looks like it will have to wait. At least my delivery hasn't been pushed back to 8 PM though like others, but I think that has a lot to do with proximity to the distribution center (I live in the loop and the DC is north of the Beltway).

    I think FedEx has a DC on 288 and Holly Hall (near Reliant). So you might get it a little sooner unless they start their routes far and work their way back in towards the DC (which I would think is likely). So who knows. Mine is coming UPS and says "delivery before 3PM (by end of day for residential deliveries)". The flooding around town may delay it as well.

    I'm looking at the silver/white one with 128gb memory. I'm in no hurry though.

    I'm waiting on FedEx myself. Do they require a signature on delivery or will they leave it at your door?

    FedEx usually requires a signature, but you can usually pick it up the same day if you make it to that particular branch in time.

    So what's the best color? The "gold" looks more like a pastel-ish color from pictures I've been seeing. Not the type of gold color I was thinking.

    I'm planning on getting a black one eventually. Space Gray or whatever. Waiting for this first wave of lunatics standing in line for hours and hours to pass first though.

    I think the gold has more hype for some reason but the space grey is the classic black.

    Went and saw them in person today. I didn't like the gold at all. the antenna lines are a whitish color that really take away from the gold feel of it. The other two colors were just fine.

    I am glad I didn't pre-order. I went into the store to at least check them out because you should definitely hold them in your hands if you are undecided about the 6 and 6+.

    I am all about bigger screens and stuff but you have to realize going into this that if you get the 6+, you better get ready to do everything with two hands for the most part. I tried to type a few times and I was able to do it one handed but it was very awkward and I knew I would probably drop it if I did it on a regular basis. As far as using it two handed, it works perfectly and I got pretty quick typing with it. The size is just right for that. It fit into the pocket pretty nicely and didn't bother me too much.

    The 6 is ideal in terms of size. it was a nice upgrade from the 5S but yet felt so much better due to the design of it. The thinner feel really lends itself nicely to the design and I was able to do everything with ease.

    Towards the end of playing with them I was still torn. I think I will mess with them some more before I make my final decision on which one I want to go with.

    If you are torn like I was, then definitely go in and hold them and actually use them in the same way you would do on a daily basis.

    You shouldn't be texting and driving anyway, so I'm not sure I want a phone that i can use one handedly. It will prevent me from future accidents.

    That's not the main thing for me, since I naturally don't do that. It's more the convenience of when I am working on something at home or somewhere and i can easily respond back with one hand rather than have to stop what I am doing and respond.
