iPhone 6 Plus

 

Best looking phablet ; Great full HD display ; Strong camera for day to day use

Too big to use one handed ; Very expensive ; 'Reachability' feels tacked on

The iPhone 6 Plus is the best looking phablet around. Its specs don't match the Android power houses and it can be tricky to hold, but there's no denying Apple's beautiful (yet expensive) 5.5 incher is a winner.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review

 

You wait a year for a new iPhone and then two come along at once. A surprise to many, Apple released not only the iPhone 6 but also the iPhone 6 Plus, a monster of a phone that comes with a 5.5-inch display, higher screen resolution, a larger battery,...

Big screen, optical image stabilisation, design, landscape mode, battery

So big, no stylus support

The iPhone 6 Plus is certainly one for the power users and certainly one for those looking for a big screen experience. But with a bigger battery and a bigger display comes a device that for many will be just too big overall.

iPhone 6 Plus review: is bigger really better for Apple?

 

Has Apple reinvented the phablet and taken the game to Samsung?

Full-HD screen ; Stylish design ; It's so big!

Hard to use one handed ; Expensive ; It's so big!

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review: No longer Apple's top dog

 

That giant iPhone 6 Plus was near-perfect, but it's since been replaced by Apple's iPhone 7 Plus

It's fair to say that the iPhone 6 Plus is still the best phablet overall thanks to everything you get. For starters, you're guaranteed to get the next version of iOS on its day of release - how many Android phones can say the same thing? Then, there's...

iPhone 6 Plus

 

The iPhone 6 Plus made waves in 2014 as Apple's first ever phablet. It was also significant as it had noticeably better screen and camera hardware than its smaller sibling, the iPhone 6.

Fantastic 5.5-inch screen ; Superb battery life ; Great camera with OIS ; Excellent gaming performance

Bigger than similar rivals ; Very expensive

iPhone 6 Plus review: a fine smartphone but too big for some people

When we initially wrote this review, the new size was something of an unknown. For many people the iPhone 6 (or iPhone 6S) is the better choice for the reasons we list in our iPhone 6 vs 6 Plus comparison.The truth is that a 5.5in screen isn't quite...

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review

 

Compared to the angled and almost industrial design of the iPhone 4 and 5, the iPhone 6 Plus makes something of a return to the original iPhone with curved sides. The screen gently curves at the edges to meet the sides and, even though it's not much...

As with the iPhone 6, it's hard to come to a conclusion about the iPhone 6 Plus. For a start, it’s unusual for Apple not to make the first move, so while the iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest and fastest iPhone ever, there are even bigger smartphones with...

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison review

 

For many people the new, larger iPhones are a welcome sight. If you've already used a larger Android or Windows Phone smartphone, you'll know the benefit of the extra screen real-estate and realise that the iPhone 5s, 5c and 5 are pretty small by...

If you prefer a smaller screen, go for the iPhone 6 with 64GB of storage. Avoid the 16GB model. If you want a larger screen and better-stabilised video, the 64GB iPhone 6 Plus should be a good choice if you can afford the difference.
