For the first time in Apple’s history, Apple loyalists have given a choice. With the latest Apple release, they can now pick up between two new iPhones, each flaunting new, separate screen sizes.

The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch screen, while, the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch screen. And with this, the duo have overshadowed their forerunner, the iPhone 5S, the biggie with a 4-inch screen.And coming with a lot of iPad-like features and functionalities, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus have at the same time made it difficult for the consumers to choose between an iPad and an iPhone.

When it comes to deciding between iPhone6 and iPhone 6Plus, ultimately it is the question of choosing between the big and the bigger. The comparison between the two might help.

Comparison

For a lot of consumers, the full HD screen is the biggest reason for buying the Plus version. At 5.5-inch, the considerably big screen is going to give you an unparallel viewing experience.

So far as the two devices are concerned, both score high on brightness and color accuracy.  and incredibly sensitive touch input iPhone 6 Plus quite simply has a better display than its little brother. Both are exceptional with excellent brightness and colour accuracy and incredibly sensitive touch input, but those extra pixels come to the fore.

Apparently, the device’s bigger screen can possibly influence the consumers’ way of viewing the web and watching their saved contents. Despite the findings, there’s no telling yet if phones with huge screens and phablets could really ditch the iPad.

Apple now has two larger iPhones: one big, the other even bigger. The iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus goes full “phablet” with a 5.5-inch display. Compared to earlier iPhones, both of the new models boast thinner bodies, ship with faster A8 processors, slightly improved cameras, speedier Wi-Fi and LTE cellular data, better voice quality if you’re using voice-over-LTE, and — except in the entry-level models — more onboard storage. And like all current iPhones, these are running iOS 8.1; it’s a far less revolutionary update than iOS 7 was, but it adds some nice improvements and customization options, including notification widgets, replaceable keyboards, a new Health app and Apple Pay.

That last feature is especially notable. Both new iPhones incorporate Apple’s new payment system, effectively turning each of them into a mobile wallet linked to your credit card. This sort of contactless, NFC-powered technology has been around for years on rival phones. But having used it since its mid-October debut, I can say that it works seamlessly (most of the time), and the implementation of Apple’s TouchID fingerprint reader puts it head and shoulders above current Android alternatives like Google Wallet. Of course, its convenience will be determined by how many participating retailers ultimately come on board.

Both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are very evenly matched, but the larger model boasts an upgraded camera and longer battery life. In our real-world testing, the optical image stabilization of the 6 Plus’s camera didn’t seem to deliver appreciably better photos than the already excellent camera on the iPhone 6. On the other hand, our battery test found that the iPhone 6’s battery life was essentially identical to that of last year’s iPhone 5S, while the larger battery in the 6 Plus delivered at least two and a half hours more battery life just for video, and more depending on your use case. (Be sure to check out CNET’s full review of the iPhone 6 Plus.)

The only reason why I am intrigued by the iPhone 6 Plus is for the Full HD screen, the nice small little features like the Face Bubbles in the messages application and the video stabalization. The UI rotation stuff is cool, but I always have my iPhone on screen rotation lock anyways.

The unveiling of the iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch screen and the iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5-inch screen have given consumers the idea that these devices would most likely be equipped with most of the features and functions that can be found in the iPad. In this case, most of iPad users might have fewer reasons to choose their tablets over the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple’s new flagship devices have obviously overshadowed its contemporaries and other big names in the market. Unfortunately, the popularity of the new devices also affected not only its competition but another major Apple product: the iPad.

You should choose the new iPhone 6 plus, with features such as better screen resoulution and larger screen capabilities your answer would be the iPhone 6 plus.

iPhone 6 Plus quite simply has a better display than its little brother. Both are exceptional with excellent brightness and colour accuracy and incredibly sensitive touch input, but those extra pixels come to the fore.

While the iPhone 6 is essentially just a bigger iPhone, Apple has higher aspirations for the iPhone 6 Plus. It operates equally in landscape as portrait (including on the homescreen – above) and in landscape mode apps can offer additional functionality like an iPad.

The battery life of the iPhone 6 Plus is massively better, perhaps twice as good in real world scenarios.

Aside from the giant screen, what’s so great about it? The battery life is off the charts. If I only use the phone a light amount, I’m getting 48 hours of battery off a full charge. If I use it heavily, I get 36 hours. One thing to note: I keep my phone in “do not disturb” mode at all times, which eliminates notifications from popping up on my screen, thus saving some battery life.

Both iPhones have exactly the same high quality construction, but where Apple must face criticism is its baffling decision to give both completely flat backs and slippery finishes. Flat, slippery backs make both iPhones needlessly hard to hold. For me I am getting the iPhone 6 Plus because the screen size, battery, and small features (Vertical and Horizontal home screen, small bubble icons in text messages emails etc., and not to forget webpages look really nice on a bigger screen)

iPhone 6 plus downside

iPhone 6 plus is 5.5 inches. when you see it in real life you do feel a bit silly for wanting a phone so big. it’ll be bigger than your average pocket. If you are going to take a selfie, make sure you have big hands else the phone shakes occasionally if not held correctly.

Other than that, there really is no difference between the two.

What really benefits the iPhone 6 compared to the iPhone 5S is its incredible thinness. It is like Apple took a rolling pin to the 5S without adding a lot more dough. This advantage is lost in the transition from the iPhone 6 to the 6 Plus with the latter feeling absolutely massive as a result.

In terms of resolution, it seems with Retina HD, they both look the same in terms of clarity, and its more a matter of a technical bragging chip if anything.

Who should use it?

I was faced with the same question when I decided to upgrade from my 5s to either the 6 or 6 Plus. I initially thought that the 6 Plus was too big. But for me, my iPhone is my exclusive computing device. (I don’t own a desktop computer, a laptop or a tablet.) So I ultimately decided on the 128GB 6 Plus. The ample storage space should accommodate all of my songs, videos, photos, apps, etc.

If you don”t have any other device and you will use the iPhone for reading, school files, and everything else, then get the 6 Plus 64GB or 128GB, but if you have another device to use for school or you just need a smartphone, then get the 6.

I guess it would depend on what you’re needing it for. Does size matter to you? Bigger screen means bigger view and less squinting.Get the plus. Better for reading mags/papers and displaying photos. Also better battery life.

Price is of course a consideration. But I believe that the added features and benefits associated with the 6 Plus justify the price differential over the 6. Better to take iPhone 6 plus…difference of $100 doesn’t matter much…so better take the bigger model with more battery life and other features.!

Conclusion

There are a number of aspects to consider.

1. What do you use your iPhone for?

This matters because if you like to watch videos and surf the web and use media on your phone the 6 plus is your option to go with. If the use is minimal just stick with the 6.

2. What is your price budget?

If you don’t want to spend to much, the 6 is the one to go with. The plus is more expensive

3. Do you have big or small hands?

If you have small hands, you may want to go with the 6 so you have a easier time holding the phone

What’s more important is that the iPhone 6 Plus’s screen is brighter which means it’s slightly punchier overall. Will you care? Not that much – both are fine displays and the main difference you should consider is that extra screen real estate. In fact the extra size of the screen means that the 6 Plus has been optimised to be used in landscape mode as well as portrait – just like the iPad Mini 2.

The rear cameras are pretty similar as well. Both use 8 megapixel sensors with 1.5 micron sensor pixels, dual tone flash and include phase detection, which help the iPhones focus quickly.

The major difference here is that the iPhone 6 Plus comes with optical image stabilization (OIS). This helps you take better photos by eliminating the blur caused by the small hand movements you make when taking a picture.
