After all of the hype around this year’s release of the “Bigger than Bigger” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the question is not, “should I upgrade my current iPhone?”
The real question should be, which iPhone should I get?
Top 5 Features of iPhone 6 / 6 Plus Video will help you decide which iPhone 6 might be best for you.
I’ve got 3 main reasons that I’m choosing to upgrade my iPhone 5 in the first place.
Reason # 1 – A Larger Screen
My iPhone 5 has a 4” screen and I must admit that I’ve had a little “screen envy” for a long while, as some of my family and friends flaunted their larger display Android devices at me. In my opinion, this has been what the iPhone has needed for some time, and Apple finally decided to listen to their consumer audience. Along with that larger screen comes even better resolution than my current iPhone 5. Jony Ive, Apple’s Senior VP of Design calls this “one of the most significant design and engineering efforts” since they first introduced the world to the original iPhone. The iPhone 6 sports a “Retina HD Display” and is being touted as the most advanced iPhone display ever designed by Apple! I’m not sure about you, but I’m excited, although I’m still not quite sure as to which iPhone I should get?
Reason #2 – Faster Speed
The new iPhone 6 has an A8 Chip as well as 64 Bit “desktop class architecture”; this is supposed to make the iPhone 6 process data and graphics much faster while using less battery (we’ll see on the battery). The speed is said to be up to 50 times faster than the original iPhone and both models of the iPhone 6 are thinner than their predecessors .
Reason #3 – Apple Pay with NFC
I’m really excited about this feature! The iPhone 6 will allow you to make purchases using only your iPhone (no credit card, no cash and no check), just your iPhone! Are the days of using your wallet going to be a thing of the past? That answer is a resounding YES, if Apple has it’s way! When you pay for a purchase using Apple Pay, the clerks won’t even be able to see your credit card or CSV code. Apple says they won’t have access to your credit card info or access to your transactions, only your bank. With the NFC (Near Field Communication) you’ll make touch-less transactions! Apple Pay will be available in October and you can read more about Apple pay at Apple.
With all of that being said, I’m still not sure which iPhone I should get, so now let’s see what the biggest differences are between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

The first and most obvious is the screen size, the iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen, while the 6 plus has a 5.5 inch screen. Depending on how it feels in my hand, the larger screen display is very tempting. In terms of thickness the iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick and the iPhone 6 Plus is 7.1mm thick, both are thinner than my current iPhone 5. Both models also come in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, Apple got rid of the 32GB models with this new iPhone. The iPhone 6 is $199 for 16GB, $299 for 64GGB and $399 for 128GB, the price for the iPhone 6 Plus is gonna be $100 more on each and that price is going to play a big role in terms of which one I choose to get. As far as battery life goes the iPhone 6 Plus has a big edge, you get up to 14 hours of talk time on the iPhone 6 compared to up to 24 hours of talk time on the iPhone 6 Plus!
Now after all of that, the question still remains, which iPhone should I get? It’s not science, it’s gonna depend on how much you want to spend, how it feels in your hand, how it fits in your pockets, and how much storage do you really need on your iPhone?
