The iPhone 6 Plus offers everything the iPhone 6 has sans the pocketability but if you are carrying your phone in a purse anyway, you might as well get the bigger screen. The iPhone 6 Plus might be unwieldy but despite its gargantuan proportions, you can’t hide the fact that all multimedia content looks even more appealing on a bigger screen – not to mention the added ease of error-free typing.
The iPhone 5s will remain a viable option for a while as well if you can live with the small screen size. After all, it has almost the same camera, almost the same quality screen, almost the same battery life and it’s processor is still fast enough. And it gives you access to the same iOS 8 features and the full app catalogue without any hardware restrictions.
The iPhone 6 is among the fastest phones around. It comes equipped with the A8 64-bit dual-core processor, which Apple claims delivers a 25 percent boost in speed and a 50 percent graphics boost over the iPhone 5S
The iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way except its average battery life: it’s thin, fast, and features the excellent iOS operating system. It was the best overall phone introduced in 2014.
