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.

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 - Pocket-lint

 

We suspect the iPhone 6 Plus will be the source of perplexity for a long time to come. Bigger really is bigger, but not always better.

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.

If you were a logical iPhone upgrader, you would be getting ready to preorder the iPhone 6. It's a lovely device and one that many will opt for when it

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.

iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy A7 comparison

 

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A7, which is a new addition to the 'A' range and is bigger than the A3 and A5. It has the same 5.5in screen as the iPhone 6 Plus, making it a cheaper rival if you're after a big-screened smartphone.

It's too early to give a definitive verdict between these two smartphones. We'll update this article when the Galaxy A7 launches.
