What’s the Difference Between iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?

Apple recently launched the release of two new smartphones: the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. While they may seem similar in name, there are a number of features that differentiate the two products. At first glance, the most outstanding difference between the iPhone 6 and The iPhone 6 plus is their sizes. Here’s what else is different between the two devices:


Apple has invested so much to ensure that they offer their customers a screen that is amazing. The iPhone 6 plus screen isn’t just larger at 5.5 inches, its resolution of (1920*1080) is higher compared to iPhone 6 is 4.7 inches and a resolution of (1334*750). It also has a higher pixel per inch than the iPhone 6 which goes at 401 per inch for the iPhone 6 plus and 326 pixels per inch for the iPhone 6.

Landscape mode

The iPhone 6 plus beats the iPhone 6 in this aspect since the 6 plus has the ability to use a special iPad style landscape mode on quite a number of apps once you hold the phone horizontally. The iPhone 6 is not able to do this.


It’s a fact that Apple has never disappointed in terms of camera power in all its products. This time, they equipped both devices with an 8-megapixel lens. The only difference is that the iPhone 6 plus has optical image stabilization. The importance of this is that it helps any hand that is not steady when shooting an image or a video.

Battery life of iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus

The battery has been generally the major shortcoming when anyone thinks of smartphones. For both phones, however, the battery life of these two phones are better when compared to the previous iPhones in all metrics. The iPhone 6 plus though wins since it has up to 24 hours of talk time on 3G. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 offers 14 hours of talk time.

Weight and dimensions

The iPhone 6 measures 5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 inches with a weight of 4.55 ounces equivalent to 129g. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus measures 6.22 x 3.06 x 0.28 inches and weighs 172 g(6.07 ounces).


For the iPhone 6, the prices start at $199 for a 16 GB configuration, It then shoots up to $299 for 64 GB and the 128 GB configuration goes for a whopping $399. All have a two-year contract. The iPhone 6 Plus prices are also competitive. The 16 GB Configuration goes for $299, followed by $399 for the 64 GB, and lastly $499 for the 128 GB.

Apple has always focused on creating products that customers love while offering competitive prices. These two revolutionary products are a prime example of this. Neither will disappoint, but which one will end up on top? All we have to do is to wait and see which of the two takes the market by storm.
