Yesterday Apple announced two new phones. You guessed right, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 plus. They are coming out on September 19th. The iPhone 6 is going to be $199 and the iPhone 6 Plus is going to be $299. Both of them have larger displays than iPhones past, NFC for mobile payments and A8 chips that are faster than ever. They are both fantastic phones but there are a few key differences that need to be brought up.
Both of the new phones have a more rounded design that make them feel more comfortable and look more modern that the boxy iPhone 5. They are both also larger than the 5. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch display and the 6 Plus is almost an inch bigger at 5.5 inches. That is just about the same size as the Galaxy Note 4 from Samsung.
As you would expect, the regular iPhone 6 is a little bit slimmer and a little bit lighter. Not that the 6 Plus is extremely heavy, it just simply has more mass. Duh. But it is for sure something to consider if you want a phone that is going to be easier to hold and control with one hand.
The screen size on the two different models will affect the picture a little bit. The iPhone 6 has about 326 pixels per inch and the 6 Plus has about 401 pixels per inch. That is all well and good, but the smaller model will have a better contrast ratio of 4000:1 as opposed to the 3000:1 ratio of the iPhone 6 Plus.
Both versions have the exact same camera, which is awesome. So you don’t have to really consider that when choosing. The only real difference is that the iPhone 6 has digital image stabilization and the Plus has optical image stabilization. Is one better than the other? Eh, probably not. No one cares. Moving on.
The bigger screen of the iPhone 6 plus allows for a few little features that won’t be found on the regular iPhone 6. In the messaging app, when you turn your phone sideways it will show a list of contacts and things in the extra screen space on the side. A few other apps will show extra information on the side as well.
The iPhone 6 Plus also has a larger battery because it is big enough to hold it. The life of the battery should be longer. When calling over LTE the 6 Plus will last for 12 hours and the 6 will last for 10 hours. When playing a video, the iPhone 6 Plus is said to last four hours longer than the iPhone 6.
As stated before, there is also a price difference. The iPhone 6 starts out at $199 for the 16GB version and the iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 for the 16GB version. Each step up in storage is going to cost an extra $100 for both phones. Just like every Apple product ever, you cant expand the storage or upgrade anything about your phone at all, which is an absolute joke by the way, but whatever. You better make sure you get everything you need when you buy it!

These are pretty much all the things you need to know when you are picking out your new iPhone. In my opinion, the iPhone 6 Plus is a little bit better of a deal. It costs a little bit extra, but you get a larger screen, more battery life, and some extra features. If you don’t mind the fact that it is pretty big, then that is probably the phone to pick.
