Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review

 

Stability issues. Finally, a big iPhone! Many people might have thought that, since the iPhone 6 Plus surpasses the 5s by 1.5 inches. In addition, there is a very slim aluminum body, but it cannot meet the high expectations. The term Bendgate combines...

Great display, Very good battery runtimes, Great GPS module, Great performance, Decent camera, Very good voice quality, Good headphones

NFC can only be used for Apple Pay, Complicated one-hand use, Flash overexposes pictures, Storage cannot be expanded, No LTE Cat. 6, Power adaptor too weak, Price, Mediocre case stability, OIS makes it hard to use the iPhone on a tripod

It is unusually big, but still an iPhone. We miss the familiar perfection of Apple in the case of the iPhone 6 Plus. The poor stability of the case is just one issue. You should not be able to twist the case when you buy a device that can cost up to...

Apple iPhone 6 Plus

 

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera hardware has some good advantages over the cameras in older iPhone smartphones, including optical IS that improves the camera's low light performance. The Panorama feature with this model's iSight camera is outstanding,...

Slightly above average image quality versus other smartphones ; Color accuracy is good ; Camera app is easy to use ; Inclusion of optical image stabilization improves low light performance of main camera ; Panoramic images are well constructed and are...

Disappointing to find an 8-megapixel main camera in 6 Plus when 6s Plus has 12-megapixels ; 6s Plus offers 5MP in secondary/front-facing camera versus 1.2MP in 6 Plus secondary camera ; Low light image quality could be a little better ; Smartphone body...

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked iPhone 6 Plus delivers a bigger iPhone if you find the 6 too small, but its difference is in size, not features.

Works on all four U.S. networks. Excellent camera, especially in low light. Premium feel. Terrific third-party apps.

It's really big, especially if you're coming from an older iPhone.

Comparisons and Conclusions Here's a little conundrum: our favorite phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 , is not available unlocked in the United States. I think the Galaxy Note 4, with its pen and its dual-window multitasking, does more to...

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The Big Bang

 

Apple did what was once the unthinkable while predictable Samsung delivers again. Right or wrong, this is a fight of old versus new, the Galaxy Note is in its fourth generation while the iPhone 6 Plus is Apple's first phablet ever.

Samsung found a niche where it doesn't overlap with Apple - phablets - and launched the very successful Galaxy Note line, now in its fourth generation. There's a Note-branded series of tablets. With the Galaxy Note 4 Samsung is taking cautious steps...

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (64GB) review: A classy 'iPhablet'

 

The iPhone 6 Plus delivers better battery life than the smaller iPhone 6, along with superb design and solid build quality. If money were no object, we'd choose the 5.5-inch model over its 4.7-inch sibling.

Elegant slimline chassis with 5.5-inch screen ; Solid build quality ; Performance boost over iPhone 5s ; Good battery life ; Optical image stabilisation on iSight camera

Some users will find the large screen hard to navigate ; Expensive ; No storage expansion ; No NFC-enabled Apple Pay support outside the US

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review: Following the curve

 

Apple caved to market pressure and created a phablet. This may sound as blasphemy but it's not the first time Cupertino is seen reacting to rivals getting too confident, too aggressive - too close for comfort. The first iPad mini had to respond back in...

Metal unibody, 7.1mm slim, 172g of weight ; LTE connectivity (Cat. 4, 150Mbps downlink) ; 5.5" 1,080 x 1,920 LED-backlit IPS LCD with 401 ppi pixel density ; Apple iOS 8; iPad-like split-screen functionality ; Dual-core 1.4 GHz Apple A8 chipset, M8...

Hard to use single-handedly, unimpressive screen to body ratio (6" Androids fit in the same footprint) ; No microSD slot ; Pricey memory upgrades, 32GB version should be standard for such an expensive phone ; No user-replaceable battery ; Protruding...

Apple said they will never make a small tablet, or a large phone. Maybe some of you know better than to trust such claims, but we're surprised with the results - a mixture of pleasant surprise and some disappointment.

The iPhone 6 Plus Mini-Review: Apple's First Phablet

 

While we've also written about the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus needs its own review in order to really understand the various features of the device that would otherwise be buried in the context of the iPhone 6. Without question, this device represents...

For the most part, the iOS 8 experience on the iPhone 6 Plus is functionally identical to what you get on the iPhone 6. However, some aspects of the iPad software are also present. For example, it’s possible to rotate the home screen in any direction...

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (AT&T)

 

The iPhone 6 Plus is a extremely large iPhone. It's an excellent device on AT&T, but the right-sized iPhone 6 makes more sense for more people.

Excellent camera, especially in low light. Premium feel. Terrific third-party apps.

It's really big, especially if you're coming from an older iPhone.

Comparisons and Conclusions The specters of the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 both lurk over any iPhone 6 Plus purchase decision. The 6 Plus opens up the iPhone experience for anyone who may have thought previous iPhones were just far too tiny....

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (T-Mobile)

 

The iPhone 6 Plus is a extremely large iPhone, and T-Mobile adds Wi-Fi calling to its mix. It's an excellent device, but the right-sized iPhone 6 makes more sense for more people.

Excellent camera, especially in low light. Premium feel. Terrific third-party apps. Wi-Fi calling with cellular handoffs.

It's really big. Lacks T-Mobile's 700MHz band.

Comparisons and Conclusions There are two questions here: Should you pick an iPhone on T-Mobile, and should you pick T-Mobile for your iPhone?

Apple iPhone 6 Plus Review

 

Big, bright display; Attractive design; Long battery life; Excellent performance; NFC; Fingerprint reader

Some camera issues; Expensive; No expandable storage

While the large 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 6 Plus is its most defining feature, Apple's phablet has a lot more under the hood.
