With the recent release of the of the brand new handset the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple have left us in somewhat of a dilemma… How do the two compare side by side and ultimately which one suits you?

Compare iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus…

Here is a quick devised spec check of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

 

Size

Firstly lets start off with the all important screen size. Does size really matter? Sorry but only you can answer this one folks.

iPhone 6 – 4.7 Inch display

iPhone 6 Plus – 5.5 Inch display

With nearly a whopping inch between them in screen size, you are likely to use each iPhone 6 in different ways. Ask yourself, ‘are you a person that prefers a discreet lightweight phone that you can easily slip into your pocket? Or an impressive large screen that allows you to comfortably read ebooks and catch up with the latest blockbusters on the way to work?’ I know which suits me best…

Lets face it they both have their pros and cons regarding size, but Apple needed to take the plunge and challenge the smartphone market and show them who’s still boss 🙂

 

Weight

iPhone 6 – 129 grams

6 Plus – 172 grams

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus are bigger and heavier than their recent predecessor the iPhone 5s. However the good news is that the iPhone 6 is thinner by roughly .5mm – impressive.

As we are on the subject of weight how thin are the iPhone 6 and 6 plus?

iPhone 6 – 6.9mm

6 Plus – 7.1mm

Design and Colour

Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus look the same (except one is larger of course). They are both made out of the same high quality materials. The iPhone has now ditched the all glass surround and have made the new models more clumsy proof (great news for me aka ‘Miss Butter Fingers’).

While the sultry smooth glass face remains, it blends seamlessly into the sleek metal body. Thankfully smashed iPhone backs will be a thing of the past – just dents and scratches from now on!

With newly rounded corners these set of iPhones won’t just be comfortable to hold, you won’t want to put it down!

Both models are available in three colours – silver, gold and space grey.

 

Price

As we are aware the most vital things in life come down to price. So what exactly can we expect to pay for Apple’s latest models?

iPhone 6 – Starting from £539 this include 16gb and the price will increase if you decide you need more storage.

iPhone 6 Plus – £619 again this including the basic storage amount of 16gb, expect steeper prices the more you go up.

 

The All Important Specs…

 

Resolution

We’ll start with resolution, although both come with Retina HD display, each are different in terms of resolution.

iPhone 6 – 1334 x 750p

6 Plus – 1920 x 1080p

Yes both vary in amounts, but you would expect the larger screen to be of higher resolution than it’s smaller counterpart. However each model will provide a spectacular to view.

Battery Life

iPhone 6 – Up to 50hrs

iPhone 6 Plus – Up to 80 hrs

 

It’s all about the GPU

With gaming features a must have on the iPhone and speed being the contending factor, how do they compare against each other?

Well the iPhone 6 is up to 50x Faster but wait for it… the 6 Plus is 84x Faster. We are definitely getting the vibe the iPhone 6 Plus is more superior and advanced than it’s baby brother the iPhone 6.

 

Storage Capacity

Both models match each other in this race. Their storage capacities range from 16gb, 64gb and a massive 128 GB!! Higher storage than any other iPhone model, bare in mind the iPhone 5s stops at what nows seems a tiny 32gb, awww bless.

 

Camera

The built-in camera on both the iPhone 6 and bigger brother iPhone 6 Plus, is FANTASTIC!  They are identical in every way bar one… the iPhone 6 plus has the added bonus of ‘Optical image stabilisation’.

Bottom line is both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are incredible phones and you can’t go wrong picking either. While most of their features are the same, the difference between them are mostly down to taste i.e size. Delve deep inside for a moment and ask yourself ‘what iPhone elements are important to you,’ and all shall become clear.

Apple iPhone 6 Design and Features…

After the recent announcement of the iPhone 6 set to be released in September 2014, there is definitely an excited buzz in the air from us Apple geeks I can tell you!

Bellow are a few of the features we’ve been promised by Apple. How will they compare to their competitors and are we really in for a treat?…

 

Apple iPhone 6 – Bigger Equals Better?

Well finally Apple have taken notice of the current market and are now rivalling it’s competitors with a bigger and better smartphone (it’s about time)

How much bigger is the iPhone 6 than it’s predecessors?

Firstly you might be surprised to hear there are two handset releases of the iPhone 6… The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 plus!

The iPhone 6 boasts a 4.7 inch screen and the iPhone 6 Plus obtains a 5.5 inch display. Not sure if Apple are rivalling themselves by releasing two iPhones at the same time, but I guess time will tell if their marketing strategy has paid off.

Apart from screen size having an increase, the new iPhone 6 is also the thinest iPhone to date. Standard iPhone 6 will be 6.9mm and the Plus 7.1mm. Pretty darn slim by smartphone standards 🙂

 

A Design Made in Heaven

The new screen comes armed with an advanced Apple signature sexy design with super seamless glass smoothly bending into sleek metal. Every detail it seems has been carefully thought out and executed beautifully.

Apple iPhone 6 Display and Resolution…

As always what is usually anticipated in the handset upgrade is resolution increase… How much are we talking? Well lets see how this bares well on the eyes, the iPhone 6 comes in at a pretty good 1334 x 750, but the Plus comes in at a whooping 1920×1080!!

Now we can only imagine the awesomeness an iPhone with this amount of resolution looks like, eye candy for certain.

More Powerful and Mighty

Apple claims their must have iPhone 6 is a powerhouse not to be reckoned with. Built on a 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the all new A8 chip is a powerful feature indeed. With more battery life than ever before, you can bet the iPhone 6 can do more and more for longer. It is better than ever.

Security Is Key

One of my favorite new features Apple has graced the iPhone 6 with is the new fingertip security element. Highly modern and innovative, this new feature will allow you to access your iPhone by you only. You can also use your fingertip to purchase from iTunes, iBooks and the App Store without having to write in your password every time, Thank god!
