Fair enough. I can't do it without shifting my grip, contorting my hand, and putting the phone in a position where it's liable to slip out of my hand. Actually the iPhone 5 isn't great either. The new position works much better for me.
It's nigh on impossible to reach the top edge of an iPhone 6/+ with one hand, unless you have exceptionally long fingers. With the new placement of the sleep-wake button I can hit it with my thumb, one-handed. More accessible to me.I don't see how it conflicts with the volume buttons, it's on the other side. Maybe if you're fiddling with the phone blindly while it's in your pocket, but I tend to use the volume controls on the remote rather than do that.
Ok, when comments on appearance are saved for the commenter's own private thoughts.What Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley and others look like has nothing to do with their ability (or lack thereof) to perform the role. Unless you're commenting that they resemble the character they're supposed to be playing, but no one was doing that.
