Apple iPhone 6 Plus – First impressions [Pics and size comparison]

IMG_4380

Apple’s new iPhones are “Bigger than Bigger”, whatever that means, and while it might not apply so much to the 4.7-inch model, it definitely applies to the iPhone 6 Plus. I’ve had it in my possession for approximately 6 hours (at time of writing) and I have to say, I’m so glad I didn’t go for the smaller model. And just so we deal with the elephant in the room first.

It’s Big

IMG_4397

iPhone 6 Plus flanked by the LG G3 and OnePlus One

There are no two ways about it. Apple’s “phablet” is huge. It’s slightly taller than the OnePlus One, and much taller than the LG G3. Both of which have the same size display as the iPhone 6 Plus. And there’s a very simple reason for it: The iPhone has a home button.

But we were kidding ourselves if we thought it would be anything but big. That home buttons been on the iPhone since 2007, and now that Touch ID is housed inside it and such a big part of Apple’s future, it’s unlikely the home button is going anywhere soon.

If you’re an Android user that’s used to big phones, you won’t mind it so much. In fact, you might prefer the way it feels in hand purely because of how slim it is. I shot its thickness vs. the Z2, OnePlus One, LG G3 and iPhone 5s. The difference between some of the thinnest Android phones and this is quite surprising.

thickness compared

If you’ve only use an iPhone, and never gone Android, you might want to try the 4.7-inch model first. The size gap between 5s and 6 Plus is – quite frankly – enormous.

Unboxing

As is customary these days, I unboxed the iPhone 6 Plus for on the PhoneDog YouTube channel. You can check that out here.

Thoughts on design

IMG_4386

It’s no exaggeration to say that I’ve been longing for the flat metal edges to disappear from the iPhone since the iPhone 4 was announced. I’ve despised them since 2010. Finally, Apple’s done the sensible thing and rounded the edges which not only makes it feel more comfortable, but also gives the illusion that it’s even thinner than it is. For a phone that’s already this thin, that’s some achievement.

And unlike HTC – but very much like every sensible Android OEM – the power/lock key is placed on the right side of the phone. It’s easy to reach with your right thumb or left-hand index finger.

IMG_4384

I’m not keen on the plastic bands on the back. They ruin an otherwise extremely classy look. The subtle curved glass at the edges of the front panel give it a really seamless finish, it’s like one continuous surface from back to front.

.
That Display Tho’
IMG_4392

Apple’s done a lot of work behind the scenes to improve more than just the pixel count and size of the display. It’s a 1080p, 5.5-inch panel, but there’s a new thinner backlight, a new polarizer and a new sub-pixel makeup. What it means is that viewing angles should be better, colors more vivid, contrast higher as well as being better outdoors. And on first looks, whatever Apple has done has worked. It’s a far better display than what’s on the 5s. Further testing and comparison is needed to see if it’s better than its Android counterparts.

All in all, I’m mighty impressed so far. But there’s always that “honeymoon” or “new device” buzz that surrounds any product when you power it up for the first time. I’ll bring you my full thoughts on the device in a couple of weeks or so. Once I’ve lived with it properly.

    horrible BEZEL..

  • I am loving the 4.7.. see no reason to carry a 5.5 phone.. IMO its an outrageous size. But to each their own

    • Paul

      I have the Note 3 and CANNOT go back to a smaller screen. I tried but I just couldn’t do it. As you said, to each their own. I can see both sides of the coin.

      • I can understand that.. Funny thing is I also had a note 3 and that is the phone that turned me off to anything over 4.7 lol

        • Paul

          Phone size is like food, you have to check it out before you decide it’s not for you. TOTALLY understand. I just happen to have had the opposite reaction.
          It’s good to have the option though. I would say they shouldn’t move to one screen size and let people decide between at least 2.

        • AJ2

          Not trying to be cute or funny, but you have no issues slipping it into front pockets & either being uncomfortable or awkward?

        • Paul

          Totally valid question. No, it fits just fine. I don’t have tiny pockets, i wear levis jeans. It’s never been an issue.

    • AJ2

      The irony of Apple and its fans mocking it for so long & it’s selling like hotcakes. Going from 4 to 5.5 is huge. People I know with iPhones didn’t want anything larger than 4…one had stuck with the 3.5…but larger screens like other features now have apple’s seal of approval so its all cool now

  • Dats

    Those bezels though… they stick out like a like a sore thumb

  • Anne Droyd

    Galaxy Note 4, blows this piece of icrap out the water.

    • AJ2

      Not if you’ve been an iOS user for 7 years

      • HeatFan786

        How does that change the fact that the Note 4 is better on an objective scale?

  • kev2684

    look at them bezel. iPhone 6 (the 4.7 inch display one) is taller and wider than Nexus 5.

  • steveb944

    Wow, it looks terrible next to my OPO. Bezel and length galore, and it looks atrocious next to the sleek G3. Apple’s design flaws are more evident when everything gets bigger.

    Does the new iPhone have a curved back? That makes a big difference with my OPO because it’s a lot more ergonomic. If you had flipped the OPO in the comparison of thickness, it’d be thinner than the iPhone at the edges.

    • 009Pguest

      For that size the OPO should have QuadHD, plus it only has the Snapdragon 801.
      Note 4 or LG G3 are much better alternatives. Again, you get what you paid for.

      • steveb944

        Wait wait, you’re comparing devices that recently released or have yet to release with one that released 1-2 quarters before? Really? Don’t forget once you throw in those high resolutions, I would lose my 2 day battery life.

        And this is an Apple article, so the masses will agree that 1080 is enough.

        • Paul

          Who cares if it’s an apple article, 1080 is enough imo and the opinion of most users. The human eye won’t notice the difference, but the companies can mark up the phone by saying “4K is okay!”

        • steveb944

          The Apple faithful care, whatever Apple give them they now need. You have groups that a. Don’t care b. Cult following c. Spec aficionados.

          There are certain people that can tell the difference, myself I’m more of middle of the road only differentiating contrast and color to a certain degree.

        • You mean Retina Super HD2 (or whatever they’ll call it)

  • OMan

    Damn, the G3 and OPO make the iPhone look like it’s some cheap knockoff.

    • Nexus 5 Owner

      so true , if i had to pick i would take the G3.

      • Loganopolis Jammyjamjamjam Bop

        went from nexus 5 to g3. you wont regret it. omg that screen

  • Matt

    I don’t really care about how the phone “looks.” It isn’t a piece of jewelry and isn’t designed to make a fashion statement. For everyone complaining about that, buy an accessory or two to add some bling to your life. I care about functionality and reliability and the iPhone has that balanced hands down.

    • donnybee

      And also looks good doing it ;)

    • zacamandapio

      That’s funny. Before people bought the iPhone because of the looks and because it wast treated as a piece of jewelry. Times change.

      • AJ2

        Prestige, self esteem, coolness factor, look no use the same thing as Bieber etc.. Im. Part of the club with all these celebrities, I’msspecial etc… You do carry it around all day so you should like the way it looks

    • TBN27

      Totally agree. It’s my main reason for getting an iPhone. Good looks like other smartphones is a subjective plus to owning one

    • macman37

      Well put my friend!! That along with a more secure OS – 1 like Android whose security is comparable to XP – is a definite winner for me! Appleinsider gave that comparison and boy, is it true.

      • AJ2

        I’ve never had security issues with Android (and Im not a super fan). I have gotten malware with my Mac

        • macman37

          If you and anyone else doubts my comment, go and ask Kaspersky, yes, the most vigilant and highly rated anit-virus software why they discontinued their antivirus/internet security for iOS devices. They told me that there is no way in hell that you can get a malware on those devices. To your defense to show that I am not being bias, the way these devices can get malware is when the owner of the device jailbreaks it. Malware on the Mac is known to be present, although it’s not as bad as Windows. Getting a good internet security software to be on the safe side is always your best bet.

    • Daniel James

      #word

    • AJ2

      Most iPhone users put it into a case, often bulky or ugly, so it seems its a lot to F tall about nothing unless you’re spending more money on replacements. Apple should sell sturdy cases that still let the design show

  • Matt

    I have the LG G3 and part of the reason the bezels are so small is it uses screens for buttons. So even though the screen is 5.5 inches I’m never full screen enough to take advantage.

    • Zacamandapio

      I’ve on-screen buttons and I take advantage of the gorgeous 5.5″.
      Specially on videos, youtube, etc.

    • PoppaCooldown

      you can go full screen when you need to. Just have to go into settings and you can make it go full screen any app you want. I have a 5.5 inch screen, and if I am consuming media I make sure those home buttons are gone.

  • J Cav the Great

    Apple: we lost our ability to engineer. We will keep huge bezels, neglect the battery to make the phone as this as possible. This will fool the consumer to think the phone is sleek when its actually a huge brick.

    • yankeesusa

      That is so true. I have both those phones in the picture and by far the oneplus one is a better choice over the iphone. The g3 is nice but unless you get it subsidized you’ll be paying over $500 for it new while the oneplus is only $349 if you can get an invite.

      • AJ2

        What many of you gave to realize is the average customer doesnt care about the specs you all compare & analyze. If they just always used an iPhone, they know nothing about Android (including Apple store employees)… They just know their phone works, their friends use the same, and there’s a physical store to go to if you have issues. The latter is a bigpplus for people who aren’t tech experts. They dont care about ram ; they care about usability. And they don’t miss what they dont know. Wait till widgets can be moved off the notification screen, for example. Or see how Swiftkey, even with limited functionality, has jumped to the top of the charts

    • donnybee

      Neglect the battery? Almost a 3000 MaH battery that, in other thorough reviews, lasts for a solid 1.5-2 days of continued use? You’ve obviously got your opinions, and that’s fine, but factually speaking – Apple hasn’t neglected the battery.

      I agree on the bezel point though.. Or at least from pictures. I’ll have my iPhone later today and will be able to tell how it actually feels vs. appears.

      • archerian

        1.5-2 days of continous use? Good luck with that…

        • donnybee

          Check out some reviews, you’d be surprised! The Verge is a good place to start :)

        • david

          The Verge is literally the worst place to start. I’ll stay on AnandTech thank you very much.

        • Alberto

          Yeah the Verge.(PR reps for iFail)

        • Loganopolis Jammyjamjamjam Bop

          yeah im gonna call bs on that right now. lets see some real world specs.

        • Loganopolis Jammyjamjamjam Bop

          i can squeeze maybe 15 hours out of my g3 with pretty moderate usage. but lets be realistic a big screen drains a lot of power

        • AJ2

          I never understand where manufacturers get battery life stats. Maybe if you’re just making calls. If you’re using a phone, it rarely lasts past lunch

      • The 6 has actually a 1800 battery. The difference seems pretty huge between the two models.

      • J Cav the Great

        I was talking about the 4.7 inch one. I know my specifics on phones donneybee. I don’t blow smoke.

    • AJ2

      If you’ve been using an iPhone for years, it’s going to take a huge Apple failure combined with a huge revolutionary can’t live without development from another os. Apple users are very loyal & it’s been easy to get your free ios upgrade annually & a new phone every 2 years without having to think. Then you’re hooked into the ecosystem, maybe bought a Mac or iPad, love you have a physical location and a real person when you need help or have a problem. I have a Mac & a Nexus 5 and iPhone 6 or 6S may get me to try even though it will cost me more in the short term. I’d like to see Android L but Apple is making it easier and the one thing I can’t take with the Nexus anymoreis tthe awful camera. That alone might get E to switch. Once Tmobile announces its loaners will have ios8, I will check it out

  • That iphone SHO IS UGLY!!!!

    • skittle

      “The thieves’ most wanted gadget is the iPhone, which accounts for over 70% of all stolen cell phones on subways and buses, the NYPD analysis reveals.” (New York Daily News)

      Uh, looks like someone “CanTouchThis” Big Mike. They might just think it SHO IS BEAUTIFUL !!! My Android phone feel safer now :)

      • donnybee

        That reminds me of that one T-Mo commercial where Bill Hader is getting robbed and the thief ends up not even wanting his phone lol and he’s telling him to take it!

  • Jose Hernandez

    Hey Cam, are we getting similar first impressions for other phones as well, or is this on iPhone only?

    • Cam Bunton

      I’ve done other phones, yeah. This is the first iPhone I’ve done.. And I can only review what I actually get. So it won’t be every device.

      • Jose Hernandez

        Cool, I can’t believe I have missed the other phones reviews!!! lol Glad to know there will be more to come. Thank you!!!!!!!

      • AJ2

        But hopefully you’ll have US staff who will get other devices released on Tmobile and will give them the same attention – at least with reviews, videos & comparisons

  • donnybee

    I love the shape of this phone! Can’t wait for the smaller one though haha I’m not a phablet guy. Continuity with my iPhone and iPad does the trick! And makes life easier for me :)

    • J Cav the Great

      I would have to say its the same for Android users. Once you understand Android and how it works.. Your good to go.

      • donnybee

        Yeah, to each his own. I think the other phones here look great too, so it’s a matter of preference. The OS..that’s really the solidifying factor for me going with iPhone.

        What Android phone do you have?

        • Carlos

          The OS will really suck on these bigger screens. IOS is basically a clutter of icons that you can’t get rid of. It is a waste of space.

          I have a 5.2″ screen, but I can put these useful things called widgets that take advantage of the bigger size.

        • Jason Crumbley

          You can put the apps in folders and then relocate the folders to a different screen. You can then move those folders to a different screen and have a naked home screen. If I remember right, you can put all those folders into one folder and make an app drawer of sorts.
          I really can’t stand widgets. They use too many resources.
          iOS has some cool stuff, it’s just not for me. I like Android better.

        • AJ2

          I bet ios 9 will let users put widgets where they want. My understanding is right now they’re limited to a notification screen so how many can you use without cluttering?

          This is a stupid question but can you change the 4 icons on the iPhone dock? Like do you have to use Mail or ITunes there. I tend to use the actual email apps like Gmail or yahoo & like keeping it separate. Also wondering with browsers, is safari always the default or can you change that if you want?

        • Gwevt

          I believe the answer to your question is yes. You can move any of the icons around to different screens as well as put them together into folders. Hold your finger on an icon until they all start wiggling, then you can drag any icon you want into any screen or folder you want. When you are done moving them around click on the home button and they will stop dancing. This applies for the four icons at the bottom of the “home” screen or “dock” as well I believe.

        • Actually I’d love to have an iPhone running Android. It seems to be a pretty solid phone, but iOS doesn’t feel right anymore after using Android for 2 years.

        • J Cav the Great

          I e been saying this since the iPhone 4. Give me an iPhone with Stock Android and I’m gold!!!

        • J Cav the Great

          I agree 100%. I have a GS3 (I upgrade in December). I have spent a lot of money on apps and in-app purchases within the Android ecosystem. It is very hard to switch to iOS when I think about that. And I love how seamlessly Google services work with Android. Its all about preference.

        • AJ2

          And what you started with… As you said, the longer you get entrenched, the harder a switch becomes. I just wish Google had put better cameras into their Nexus devices. Getting teens & college age consumers is huge

      • AJ2

        What I really dont like is were really becoming an iOS vs Android world with more division (and Apple products being more expensive). Hopefully cars or cash register will have technology to work with both. But already you have to ask friends or dates if they have an iPhone… Otherwise, no facetime, no messages, and a bunch of other features. (yes, there usually are 3rd party apps work between platforms like Viber or Skype but ios users don’t want to bother) It really ends up dividing people more,; in some cases, definitely on income… And there are fewer people like me who use (maybe stupidly) devices from both platforms daily. I feel I probably need to bite the bullet and get an iPhone to get the most out of my Mac. The Nexus 5 price (Unlocked only $150 more than basic iPhone) combined with a simple prepaid plan has meant huge savings. Then add Google Play Rewards app (already over $15 credits), countless free Amazon daily apps & now their ridiculous coin promotions that led to nearly $40 app credits I’ll never use. No freebies on Apple plus having to start from scratch. But may need to bite the bullet.. Everyone I know, friends, family, USA, Canada, Australia, England, Israel all have & love their iDevices.

        • Gwevt

          I too used both platforms and was very happy doing so until the Android phones all got so big. I went to an Iphone a year ago and have been very happy with it. I’m not sure what kind of apps you are using most but I haven’t paid for more than two and those were .99 or 1.99 upgrades. I think you will find there are far more free apps than you think, it seems to be a common miss-conception that you have to buy all your apps on IOS or the ones worth having aren’t available free. I certainly thought that was going to be the case but have been pleasantly surprised to find that wasn’t he case, at least in my experience. That said there is still an advantage to having both systems available day to day but I’m not missing it as much as I thought I would.

    • Paul

      I’m not an iPhone fan but I have been interested in the body design. That what the first thing I noticed when they showed a picture.
      I’ll see my coworker’s 6 on Monday.

      • donnybee

        Yeah, I haven’t been able to hold mine yet haha so my opinion is based off the pictures for the next couple hours.

        • AJ2

          Will you end up hiding that design in a case though.

    • Carlos

      Uhhh. The iPhone 4.7″ is as big as my 5.2″ LG G2, so you’re getting a phablet either way, just with a tiny screen and huge bezels.

      • AJ2

        It’s similar to Nexus 5 dimensions but smaller screen too. I’ll have to go-to Apple store when its less chaotic

    • Gwevt

      I’m with you on the phablet thing…The 5s was getting big for my taste. I wish they were offering a smaller one than the 6.I would be happy with one smaller than the 5 but at least not bigger! Android lost me as all the new offerings kept getting bigger and I really thought Apple would stick with a pocket size phone as their mainstay or at least in the line-up!

  • Can’tTouchThis

    Galaxy Note 4 blows this piece of iCrap out the water. Lol

    • skittle

      So how long have you had your Note 4? ;) At least have your Note 4 in hand as evidence to really compare.

    • donnybee

      Someone’s offended by the iPhone success!

    • Android_God

      NO ONE CARES

    • mieka

      I have the note 3 and just got my iPhone 6 today. In really by going about sending the iPhone back and getting the note 4. I literally feel like I’m in a closed box when I use the iPhone

  • Paul

    Did y’all see the guy that dropped his brand new iPhone 6 on the Today Show??

    • Did it break? Poor guy.

      • Paul

        Apparently not, but DAMN!

        • AJ2

          I’m sure Apple would have replaced it if it had. He was in Australia. Ive never cracked a screen… I though gorilla glass was supposed to be so strong

  • ChrisKringle

    I decided to get the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and I’m completely satisfied. You won’t go wrong with neither one to be honest.

    • nutmac

      Agreed. At first, I thought Apple sent me 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus by mistake. 4.7-inch feels almost (but not quite) comfortably large for me. And 4.7-inch is quite pocketable.

      Then again, some folks don’t mind using their phone with two hands, and if you are gonna go large, you might as well get 5.5-inch and be done with it.

    • AJ2

      What did u have before

      • ChrisKringle

        Galaxy S5

  • ama8o8

    I think this is all a matter of preference >_< If I were an apple guy I would go for the 5.5 inch one mainly because I like watching videos on my phone …a small screen is not good enough for me LOL especially one with such horrible bezels

  • Tough call on choosing the size. It seems to me that the 6 bumps up against the iPad mini. I personally never liked the huge phones that I see people using. Have to really handle the new 6 in person.

    • krym73

      That’s because apple told not to like it for many years, but now they released bigger phones so you’ll be loving it shortly.lol

  • Android_God

    I read an article recently which said that all of the world’s unhappiness dwells in the comments section. This is especially true reading some of the comments today here.

  • David K

    Seamless handover from wifi calling to cell network during calls??

  • CKR

    Anyone with a 6+ see grainy video watching youtube in landscape mode? Was at a tmo store checking out the 6+. I watch a lot of youtube so that is the first thing I looked at. Ran it from safari over their LTE

  • Mike Palomba

    I just got my 64GB Gold iPhone 6 ordered today and they gave me overnight shipping for free. I tested on out and its honestly not as impressive as i thought it was going to be but I’m still glad I got it. Cant wait until it comes!

  • Cam Fas

    I paid for overnight shipping plus I am a jump customer and ordered on the 12th ups drove by my house and kept going

    • Andrew

      Omfg that drives me insane! I have Amazon Prime and I get super irritated and/or disappointed when I see the delivery truck go by (or, obviously, not show up at all) and I was supposed to receive the shipment that day because of two day shipping. I usually call Amazon to complain because I hope I’ll get some kind of credit. xD

      • Turb0wned

        I’ve never in my life didn’t have something from prime show up when it’s supposed to. I have a hard time believe it has happened to you multiple times from Amazon.

        • Andrew

          Oh, it has. Just because it hasn’t happened to you doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened to someone else. With that logic, if your Amazon packages haven’t gotten lost, then you have a hard time believing it has happened to others, which is a ridiculous notion.

  • CKR

    @ Mike. I don’t want to be a downer either. But when I was at the store the page load on safari didn’t blow my mind. Was a bit slow but I could deal with that. Again over LTE but at full “dots”.

  • Jason Crumbley

    The power button on the HTC One M8 isn’t used very often because you can wake the phone by simply tapping on the screen. So, I’m not sure your complaint is really relevant, Cam.

  • Orlando G.

    I’ve been an Android user ever since the original G1. As a former TMO employee and tech junkie, I’ve had the first Windows phone (windows mobile), then moved on to Blackberry, then on to Android when the G1 came out. When the new Windows came out, I won a contest at work and got a free HTC Radar and tried that for a few months. Gave that to my mother afterwards.

    The only OS I haven’t owned has been Apple’s but I’ve had some time with the 5c because my son has one. I’ve had some interest in trying out an iphone, for awhile, but the small screen has always stopped me considering I’ve been using all the Galaxy series phone and currently own the LG G3.

    Now that the 6+ is out, I might use my “jump” and get it….but….after its been out for a few months. If I don’t like it, I’ll wait for my next “jump” opportunity and go back to Android.

    • hj78jk

      You cannot be a “tech junkie” and an iphone user. Sorry but iOS doesn’t even let you browse or manage your own files. I recommended it to my non-techie family and friends (mom, sister, grandpa, 2 cousins) and of course they love it because it protects them from themselves..

      • Orlando G.

        I respectfully disagree. The fact that I’m not biased on a particular OS and have owned and dabbled in almost everything but Apple shows that I am. Just because you don’t care for Apple doesn’t mean that anyone who is using an iPhone or is interested in using one isn’t a tech junkie. I’m opened minded. If my experience isn’t a good one then so be it. At least I can say that I tried it.

        • Tulio M. Mesa

          tech junkie here, tried IOS first, cool phone when i can jailbreak it, other then that, eeehhh. rooting is easier

      • KingCobra

        Why not? Are tech junkies required to not like a smooth running, highly optimized OS with better apps? We all have to enjoy rooting and tinkering to get the best out of our devices? You sound rather closed-minded.

  • Jerry Rich

    You iboys that are going for the plus could have saved a lot of money by jumping on the Galaxy Note 2. A 2014 flagship with 1 GB of ram, you have to be kidding me.

    • Turb0wned

      But it runs smoother and doesn’t have touchjizz, and this is coming from someone that isn’t an “iBoy.” Only phones worth a damn is the Nexus, Moto X and iPhones. Timely updates and no bloated ugly interfaces.

        You proved yourself to be an “iboy” by including iphones in your list of phones that were worth a damn. How do you know “it runs smoother”? Did you get your thrill of a lifetime by touching one at an apple store? They haven’t been released yet. Spec wise,1GB ram, 1.4 GHz dual core CPU doesn’t sound like a speed demon to me. Sorry to inform you that it’s 2012 Android technology.

        • Turb0wned

          Ohh I’m sorry, I didn’t know it wasn’t released yet. I thought September 19th passed already. Where is my mind!

          Any if you mean the Note 4 hasn’t been released yet, then why try to push someone over to it? Personally I think the Moto X (2013) runs smoother than any samsung touchjizz phone and look at it’s specs..

          So I’m an “iBoy” because I included the iPhone along with 2 other Android phones? Interesting.

          android is crap! it will be a laggy pos os, even on a i7 desktop. cant compete with a native coded os like ios. ios is more efficient with less power. i guess you’re a ABOY.

          What do you think of your apple now buddy? Maybe too many recycled beer cans in that phone of yours. Another quality build from apple.I’d suggest returning it and getting a premium phone.

      • laurnzo

        Sorry to disappoint you but the iPhone 6 Plus doesn’t run smoother…At least not right now. I’m getting a lot of lagging with almost not much app installed on my 64GB besides Asphalt 8 and maybe 3 other apps. Also, I’ve only had it since friday and it’s already getting hot. Touchwiz on the other hand is runny smooth on my S5. i really don’t see your case here.

    • tomnewtn

      I had the Note and returned it. Did not like TW. I usually buy Nexus and prefer it over other Androids. I have also purchased iPhone and there are things about it I like better, but some things I like about Android more. Both seem very smooth and fast to me, and I find it odd that while folks seem to have a problem with the iphone specs, it is a different OS altogether. From my experience, the iphone OS behavior is more fluid, responsive and elegant than I’ve seen in any Android. And with what Androids would refer to as lesser specs.

    • skittle

      This whole iPhone vs Android is just two different operating systems that people choose between . The hardware needed for Android vs the hardware needed for Apple IOS isn’t really a good point to make in this “fight”. Some people prefer the way Apple does what they do and they love iOS . They don’t care for Android that much and no amount of “°horsepower ” talk will sway them. And that’s fine. Android OS is on many devices which come in many sizes with wide variations of hardware. It’s simpler for some people to choose the iPhone and move on. These users don’t care for so much variety and with them that’s a strong point. Very few carrier apps/software stuff to try and delete and no TouchWiz. I use Android and it’s fine for what I do.

  • A protruding camera lens? OMG!

  • Nate4ZZ

    My Nexus 4 (2012) had the same specs as the Iphone 6 (4.7″ screen, 720p, NFC, similar 300+ dpi) plus wireless charging… overpriced for the specs, but of course its Apple so they will charge you $650+ A sucker is born every minute!

    • Michael

      then how come iphone beats the s5 in benchmark? 1.3 dual core vs 2.5 quad core? oh wait it cuz of the 64 bit architecture inside of the iphone that made it better than any cpu for android. you people make engineer facepalm themselves thinking specs depends on ghz and cores.

      • Evan Lam

        No, the issue is that you are comparing it to a Samsung Galaxy device. Pretty much everyone who has been with Android for several generations of phones know that the Touchwiz UI that is put on Samsung devices is very heavy and resource intensive compared to most of the other UIs or roms out there. For example, my Galaxy S3 has 2 GB of ram, but in the task manager, it shows 1.56 GB, and about a 1GB is being used, even with out any active apps. On the other hand, iOS is much less resource intensive, and has been optimized better(since it only runs or 4 or 5 models of phones) and therefore can getaway with a dual core and half a gig to a gig of ram. However, if both devices were put on the same operating system and the same rom, the iPhone would perform much more poorly compared to the Android phones with quad cores. Of course, Apple lock their phones down so much that it is very unlikely that anyone would be able to port over any other operating system to the iPhone( i may be wrong on this, but i doubt that it would work. Also, had you compared the iphone to a phone on stock android or a similar rom, the results would have been much closer.

        • jose!

          You just killed all reason to argue for the S5 as being a better phone.

        • Medion

          Evan – Good post, but I just wanted to provide some technical insight to add to your claims. Please see my posts above yours for more specifics (so I’m not repeating myself or brow-beating people). Some of this stuff is irrelevant to the iPhone vs. Galaxy debate and just an “FYI” :)

          “For example, my Galaxy S3 has 2 GB of ram, but in the task manager, it shows 1.56 GB, and about a 1GB is being used, even with out any active apps.”

          In general, phones allocate 128-256MB of RAM to the GPU, so if you have 2GB, the entire 2GB won’t show. I suspect that Samsung is allocating 448MB (64*7) to the GPU to allow for better performance with all of the UI tricks and multi-window aspects of Touchwiz. As for RAM usage, free RAM is wasted RAM. The fact that you’re using roughly two thirds of your available RAM means you have room to grow. Once you max out, Android will start killing tasks as needed in the background to free up RAM for the foreground. It’s when you get to a foreground app that needs so much RAM that Android can’t kill enough background tasks for it that you start to chug. For today’s usage, 512MB of RAM is less than ideal, and 1GB of RAM is fine for most usage scenarios. Having 1.5-2GB of RAM just gives you room to grow, which is a good thing in today’s typical 2 year upgrade cycle.

          “the other hand, iOS is much less resource intensive, and has been optimized better(since it only runs or 4 or 5 models of phones) and therefore can getaway with a dual core and half a gig to a gig of ram.”

          Android does better with a dual-core than a quad-core* (if using the same CPU and frequency) as well. It has less to do with optimization and more to do with thermal throttling. But Apple doesn’t let other OEMs sell iPhones or phones with iOS, so they could include a stone in there and it wouldn’t matter. Android OEMs have to deal with marketing and competition, and who wants to advertise a dual-core when everyone else advertises a quad-core?

          *Assuming same CPU core and frequency, quad-core is more powerful than dual-core, when on an open test bench with adequate cooling. However, inside a passively cooled smartphone case, the SOC will thermally throttle. Dual core + GPU tends to do better than quad-core + GPU in this environment, which is why Apple (and the 2013 Moto X) have done so well in terms of performance relative to their peers.

          “Also, had you compared the iphone to a phone on stock android or a similar rom, the results would have been much closer.”

          This part is false, but there’s good reason for it. Assuming same hardware and software, we now have the limitation of APIs and the development environment. Apple forces developers to make native apps. Native apps offer better performance. Google prefers java and discourages the use of native apps. Due to the abundance of hardware configurations with Android, native apps can run very well on one device and poorly on another, whereas java offers a more consistent experience across devices.

          So Android will always run slower than iOS with similar hardware because of this. It’s what allows Android to run on such a broad spectrum of devices. Now, changes in runtime (ART) will significantly help to bridge this performance gap, but won’t eliminate it entirely.

        • HERNANDOPEDRAZA

          Agree lol…

      • Medion

        While it’s faster, it’s not because the CPU is more powerful. I know that sound stupid, but please give me a minute to explain.

        First off, 64-bit in its own doesn’t make a device faster. There are many ways to measure a CPU’s performance, but the most consistent way I’ve found is in Dhrystone MIPS (DMIPS). There’s a set number per clock cycle. So, a Krait CPU, part of the Snapdragon SOC, ranges from 3.3 DMIPS per clock cycle (Krait 200) to 3.51 (Krait 450). By comparison, Cortex A15 (used in Exynos, Tegra, and a few high-end MediaTek SOCs) is 3.5-4.01 depending on implementation.

        ARM has announced two main 64-bit cores for 2015 availability (and some are out today). They are the ARM Cortex A53 and the A57. They are the 64-bit sequels to the A7 and A15, respectively. They are rated at 2.3 DMIPS (A53) and 4.1-4.76 (A57). So even though it’s 64-bit, the budget-minded A53 will be slower than last year’s A15. While 64-bit enabled some nice features, on its own it doesn’t speed up most general tasks.

        With that said, I did say that the iPhone 5s is faster than its main competitor at the time, the Galaxy S4 (I’ll leave the S5 out of this for now). On a technical side, the S4’s Exynos and Snapdragon options have more horsepower than the SOC/CPU used in the iPhone 5s. So, why does the iPhone 5s achieve better performance? To answer that question, lets look at an Android vendor who took the “Apple” approach last year.

        In 2013, Motorola released the Moto X. Fanboys and spec-whores united in their distaste of the dual-core CPU used and blasted it without ever using it. But then, something funny happened. The Moto X beat its two closest competitors in most situations/benchmarks. The Moto X uses a dual-core Krait 300 @ 1.7ghz. The HTC One M7 uses the same setup in a quad-core configuration, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 takes the quad-core and clocks it to 1.9ghz. So surely, these are faster devices, right? Technically, they are twice as powerful. But, what happens when you cram those guts into a smartphone case? Heat happens.

        What we’ve found is that mobile applications rarely make effective use of more than 2 cores (though the second core is nice). So there is minimal gain in going from 2 to 4 cores on the same architecture. However, the extra heat produced causes throttling, and when the CPU throttles, so does the GPU and other components. We tested a Moto X against a Nexus 5 and found that in Amazing Spider-Man 2 after 15 minutes, the Moto X remained at 1.7ghz/400mhz (CPU/GPU), whereas the much faster Nexus 5 plummeted to 1.25ghz/200mhz. The Moto X was faster! (And the Nexus 5 uses a much faster Snapdragon 800 SOC!).

        So what Motorola did was reduced overhead (2 fewer cores for less heat, 720p display for less heat and fill-rate requirement) which lead to better performance than its rivals. Apple uses the same approach. They use a dual-core CPU and a powerful GPU to maximize battery efficiency, reduce heat, and therefore reduce throttling. So while their system isn’t the most powerful on a test bench, when fit inside a tight form factor with no active cooling, it’s a champ!

      • Medion

        Now, to directly answer your question as to why the iPhone 5s can beat out the S5, here’s why.

        We know that the S5 uses a 2.5ghz Krait 400, which is rated at 3.39 DMIPS/clock. This comes out to a theoretical 8,475 DMIPS/core.

        We know that the iPhone 5s uses a 64-bit Cyclone MPCore based on the ARMv8 instruction set. They have not disclosed the DMIPS rating. So we’re going to take an educated guess that Cyclone shares features with A57 just as Snapdragon’s Krait shared features with A53 (because they share instruction sets). Since A57 is rated at 4.1-4.76, we’re going to slot Swift on the lower side at 4.25, since it was a first implementation (this is actually somewhat generous). At 1.3ghz, this gives Apple 5,525 per core.

        Now, we make the following two mathematical assumptions. First, we assume that cores 3 and 4 are effectively useless, as they give little to no benefit outside of specific benchmarks that utilize them. Second, we’re assuming Apple designed this system to limit throttling, whereas Samsung’s SOC will throttle to roughly 60% capacity like previous generation Kraits. That would mean that the 2.5ghz SOC would hit 1.5ghz in intensive situations, or 5,085 per core.

        This means that Apple wins, 5,525 to 5,085 (assuming the second core scales the same in both, we don’t need to add that in because it’s not a variable). However, even if the CPU didn’t throttle that much (that is pretty extreme), the GPU throttles as well. Since so much of the GUI is now GPU accelerated, throttling here leads to a laggier UI even if the CPU is faster.

        I hope that I’ve illustrated how smart design leads to better and more consistent performance and why, even though modern SOCs are more powerful, that doesn’t always translate to more power in the device. I thought that the 2013 Moto X was a brilliant design and a huge step forward for Android devices, and I was disappointed to see the spec-whores win that one (Motorola is now doing what everyone else is doing, for marketing purposes).

        In other words, Apple gets it. Motorola got it. But since marketing departments exist, we have to compete on paper and not in real world performance.

    • Evan Lam

      Your are right in many respects, but the iPhone 6 doesn’t even have a standard 720p or 1080p resolution. Instead it has a 1344×750 resolution to keep the same ppi as the iPhone 5s.

      • Dakota

        But it has an apple logo and celebrities use it

    • Medion

      The thing about different devices is that the OEM gets to choose what goes into it. So while the Nexus 4 matches the current iPhones in many respect (roughly same resolution, same screen size, NFC, etc.), it falls behind in others. It has inferior camera output. It’s 32-bit. It will cease getting updates sooner (when compared even to the iPhone 5 released around the same time). It doesn’t have a finger print reader. It doesn’t natively support LTE, VoLTE, or WiFi calling.

      So those arguments work both ways. You can find phones from 2008-2011 that have features not found in phones today, so you really can make this argument in ANY device comparison.

      • laurnzo

        What is the point of Apple throwing updates on older devices when at the end, all you get is one program from the other being unresponsive. I will admit to always by apple products but unlike others i give credit where credit if due. I love apple’s integration where my Macbook pro and Mac mini working very well with my Apple TV and iPhone/iPad but when I’m out and about, You’d rather see me on my Samsung S5. I have needs for both in different ways.

        Just a side not. Taking pics from my iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S5 to sending it to my 4K TV. The iPhone camera is a joke.

    • KingCobra

      One phone is running iOS, the other is running Android. Obviously one OS needs higher pure specs in order to run properly than the other. So spare us your uninformed elitists “Apple is for suckers” stereotype. Your OS is inefficient, it needs higher specs to run.

      • kalel33

        To be fair, Apple does charge a very high premium on their phones in order for someone to have that Apple symbol grace the back of their phone. They make a killing on each and every IOS device.

        • donnybee

          They don’t just sell a phone based off spec sheets like other manufacturers. You probably buy based off a spec sheet so that’s why you feel it’s overpriced. And, to your defense, a lot of Android fans will buy a phone if the specs are killer. iPhone is more about integration, software optimization, ecosystem, security, attention to detail and, above all else, support. This is why we even have a market for both is because each person is different. You like what you like on sheets and we like what we like in optimized performance. To each his own.

        • kalel33

          Nothing you stated makes my post invalid. Apple makes far more money per device than any other maker. There have been numerous tech articles stating this exact same thing. Also, the Motorola Moto X, from last year, was one of the best Android phones of 2013 but it wasn’t a spec sheet hero. Specs matter but they aren’t the end all. Apple just has been able to get people to pay much higher for cheaper hardware and it’s been a booming business to them. I’m not a hater, just impressed with the way they can market something so well that people will pay a hefty premium.

          You also say “above all else, support”. Apple only gives you support for 90 days then you have to shell out a bunch of more money just so you can call them for that “superior” support. If HTC, Samsung, etc. was able to get another $100 per customer for support then I’d make a wager that their support would be just as good.

    If you’ve just started (90 days)or are getting Tmo service let’s do the refer a friend program. We can both pay bottom tier and get unlimited data for a year. This is a sweet deal tmo offers. You can contact me cindyandjohnny@att.net

    • Dakota

      What are the rates for am individual?

  • Dakota

    Can’t believe Verizon of all carriers is offering a great deal for individuals. Better than Tmobile. Only $60 for 2gb ON A SUBSIDIZED PHONE with a 2 year. (yes, overage apply but if that’s all the data you need, that’s great with a subsidy). Tmobile has a 2gb plan for $45 but you have to pay for the full phone price. (I know no contract, just phone payments) On VZ, you’re paying 199 for that basic iPhone. (they’re even giving away an extra gb on their more everything plans… Tmobile spurred a price was but for the average person who used 2gb or less, this is a sweet deal… You can always have Tmobile buy you out of course). Competition is great. Gotta be the best individual deal

    • iOSX

      T-Mobile splits up the phone payment into monthly installments. So a $45 plan + $27 every month for the iPhone 6 would be a ~$70 bill. Honestly I was at least entertaining the thought of switching to Verizon after seeing the $60 plan that you’re talking about – but I realized I would lose my $70 grandfathered unlimited plan and free international texting + data that I make use of when I’m in Europe.

      • Laststop311

        pretty sure u only get the free international stuff with the revised 80 dollar deal.

        • skadoosh

          pretty sure you get it with any simplechoice plan, as long as you have the base rate 50 dollar plan your golden, data package doesnt determine whether you get the international plan

        • iOSX

          This isn’t the case. I made extensive use of international texting and data while I was in Germany, Austria, and Poland in the summer.

        • Nurdface Gamerhandz

          Only thing you don’t get with the 70 dollar unlimited is discounted rhapsody and 5 GB of tethering

      • Dakota

        Don’t forget fees. That’s one thing I appreciate about Straight Talk. Only 1.62 in tax.. No add ons. I thought once contracts were gone, that would end. Well yeah unlimited is not 2gb. The point was more than Verizon is known for most expensive plans yet this offer is slightly less than the similar Tmobile plan, and $30 less than the Verizon more everything. I saw Verizon also has a promotion where they’re adding 1gb of data on contracts right now. I use Viber for international calls & texts.

    • KingCobra

      Yeah if you barely use your phone then 2GB is a good deal. Basically as long as you’re around Wifi all the time or don’t use data. For any regular user, 2GB of data is blown through very quickly on LTE and that $60 easily turns into $75 or $90+ for exceeding it. That’s the catch.

      • Dakota

        The average consumer uses less than 2gb. Every survey shows that. Regardless, Tmobile offers the same plan.. The point is even with the subsidy, Verizon ends up being cheaper. Neither Tmobile or Verizon cheap plans, however, appear on the Apple website order page. You have to realize people who frequent sites like these are not typical users. I’m still on Straight Talk so get 3gb of LTE for 45 and never exceed it.. Now I’m not t downloading and watching movies on a phone.

        • Jaime Lannister

          Over the first 24 months, based on the numbers you and guesttt gave, you’ll save $90 on Verizon, After that 24 months is up, your phone is paid for on T-Mobile and your bill will drop to $45. You’ll make up that $90 difference 6 months after your phone is paid off with T-Mobile. If you live in a city with coverage, go T-Mobile.

        • Dustin S.

          Hey if you just joined Tmobile, how long ago did you join? Let me refer you as a friend so we can get the 25$ gift card and we can save on unlimited data for 12 months. email me at dustin.scott15@gmail.com

    • guestttttt

      That’s great but for 3.75 more you can keep T-Mobile. Let me explain. if you go to T-mobile and get the same basic model and put down the same 199 as you would with Verizon the plan comes down to 63.75. 650-200=450 450/24 months = 18.75 45+18.75 =63.75. 63.75 to have no contract, and WiFi calling. SIGN ME UP!!!

          I think he’s making the point that Apple has said certain features aren’t necessary but then going in and adding them later. Valid point, can’t argue with that. However, its not as big a deal to most people as some would make it seem as evidenced by the vast amounts of these phones that are sold. Different strokes for different folks, when you buy Apple you have to be content with the features they have and know that they have worked hard to implement them in the most user friendly manner possible. They’ve also made sure the features work with the rest of the sub systems and apps, something that is a real problem in the Android world.

        • tomnewtn

          Valid point for sure. I didn’t perceive that in his comment. Thinking about my own user experience with both platforms, I don’t see any real difference in how I use either.

      Their mostly complaining ios8 is draining battery life, if you want a better phone with better battery, bigger screen on a smaller frame. .. can’t go wrong with either Note 4 or G3.

        Out of all the phones out there, I think I’m debating between both the 6+ and the Galaxy S5 from Samsung. I never did consider the Note 4.. When is the release date for that phone?

    I played with the 6+ at Best Buy this weekend… and found it ridiculous.

    Does anyone work for TMo? I ordered JUMP at 8 am 9/12… my card has been charged and posted. And now I’m being told it could be 6 weeks before it ships. When I placed the order, it was quoted shipping 9/19, and I did expedited shipping. Umm… what? Why have I been pushed to the very back??

    Still on fence with 6+ to replace Note 2. At the store I used the “reachability” feature. It worked well. After I got home I realized I placed my apps on the Note 2 on the bottom two rows to reach them in the first place. Widgets on the top to get my “at a glance” info. I think this works better for me. But what do I know?

    Does TMobile WiFi calling on iOS8 not disable cell modem like it does with Android? I still see my cell bars fluctuating even when I have WiFi calling enabled. My battery life on the 6 Plus has been pretty crappy – I am getting 1/2 the life that I got out of the Note 3 or LG G3.

    I switched to Android originally because my iPhone battery life was so bad with T-Mobile because signal can be so low in my area. If the iPhone leaves the cell modem enabled it seems like WiFi calling offers no battery savings opportunity with iOS. That stinks if true.

    Why buy a LG Flex when you can have the same functionality with an apple 6 plus? Unfortunately the 6+ doesn’t bend back into shape, the screen shatters instead. Oops!!!!

      Wait, so aluminum works differently than plastic??

      Please tell me more!

      • Jerry Rich

        Yeah, kinda bends or dents. You know like a beer can.

    TMO News hasn’t reported on how Apple sent out a bad update today that I did not install. It caused some real problems for those who did. The update is 8.0.01. Also, some folks are bending their iphones because of how they carry them. The soft aluminum responds to force just as it always does. Other phones have broken or bent under force too. Just be careful I guess.

    Cam us readers want to know which new Iphone is more bendable. The 6 or the 6Plus.
    Who have to let us know!

    • donnybee

      HAHAHA wow dude.. just, wow!

      Remember how big of a number 10,000,000 is? Now take 1% of that. Now take that 1% (100,000 units) and divide that by 11,111. This is how many were reported as affected by bending :) So let me teach you again.. We took the 1% of weekend sales and divided that by over eleven thousand! Can you start to see how small that number is? Here it is in percentage format: 0.00009%.

      If you would like any more math classes, let us know :)
      I’m so excited to see how much you learn!

    Hi Cam. There’s a great article about WiFi Calling on the iPhone6 using T-Mobile (besides the bigger screen, one of the best improvements with the newest iPhones) on the /recode.net web site: http://recode.net/2014/09/30/review-seamless-integrated-wi-fi-calling-on-the-iphone-6/

    The iPhone 6 Plus is difficult to use one-handed, not to mention more uncomfortable than similar-sized phones. In exchange, though, you get more of an iPad-like user experience on a much smaller device. It also has better battery life than the smaller iPhone 6, as well as a better camera.
