I hate, hate, hate, hate large phones. If I needed a bigger screen, I'll pull out my tablet or my laptop. I'm a skinny guy, I wear tight-ish jeans (fiance hates it, but I gotta be me), and pulling a big-ass phone out of my front pocket is a pain in my ass, and that's with an IPhone 5S.
I'm going to pass on the 6 and hope they come out with a traditional-sized one for the 6S or 7.
I agree with you. Unfortunately, I think that Apple wants us to have a large phone in our bag and an Apple Watch at the wrist.
I would not hold my breath for an iPhone 6s (with "s" for "small").
