iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Alpha vs. Xperia Z3 Compact: Three kings

 

We're looking for the best phone with a sub-5" screen. At a time when the best features seem to only come with the largest display, there's a strange, almost rebellious feel to it. No need to tell you, we're enjoying it. The Apple iPhone 6, Samsung...

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus review: bigger and better, but with stiffer competition

 

To say that Apple's doing things differently would be an understatement. With the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, the company introduce

Large, beautiful display ; Great camera with optical image stabilization ; Long battery life ; Fast performance

One-handed use is frustrating and uncomfortable ; NFC can only be used for mobile payments

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...

Apple iPhone 6 (Unlocked)

 

The Apple iPhone 6 is the right iPhone at the right size, and one of the few unlocked phones that can be used on any of the four major U.S. carriers.

Universal carrier compatibility in the United States. Best third-party apps of any mobile OS. Excellent low-light camera performance. Fast Wi-Fi.

Phone calling performance is just okay.

None of our other top unlocked phones are the iPhone's hand-friendly, 2.64-inch-wide size. And none of these phones have a camera as good as the iPhone's. But the real reason to spring for an unlocked iPhone 6 isn't hardware, but software and support....

Apple iPhone 6 review

 

In 2014, Apple forked its iPhone product line, simultaneously introducing the next generation of its flagship model -- the iPhone 6 -- and debuting its super-sized sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus . The iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way...

The iPhone 6 delivers a spacious, crisp 4.7-inch screen, improved wireless speeds, better camera autofocus, and bumped-up storage capacities to 128GB at the top end. iOS remains a top-notch mobile operating system with an excellent ecosystem of apps,...

Battery life isn't much better than it is on last year's iPhone 5S. And there's wasted space: an even larger screen could have been squeezed into the same housing.

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.

Apple iPhone 6 ( 128GB, gold)

 

When choosing between the 6 and 6 Plus, in the end, it's a matter of personal preference. I know several people who love the iPhone 6 Plus, with its larger screen size and better battery life. But the iPhone 6 feels best in my hand. It's thin, elegant,...

Apple iPhone 6 (AT&T)

 

The Apple iPhone 6 is the right sized iPhone for right now, and it includes a bunch of AT&T technologies which will improve calls and data over the next year.

Super-premium feel. Easiest smartphone OS. Excellent low-light camera performance. Includes AT&T's newest frequency bands.

Just average phone calling performance.

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

Apple iPhone 6 (T-Mobile)

 

The Apple iPhone 6 is the right iPhone, at the right size, for right now, and Wi-Fi calling is a nice bonus.

Super-premium feel. Easiest smartphone OS. Excellent low-light camera performance. Fast Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi calling.

Lacks T-Mobile's upcoming 700MHz band.

iPhone 6 review

 

Let's start with the facts. There is explosive demand for bigger smartphones. A 4-inch smartphone feels small now; somewhere around 5 inches is the new normal. Yet too many large-screen phones...

Fantastic camera ; Gorgeous display ; Excellent performance and battery life

No optimization for the larger screen ; Unsightly lines on the back ; Awkwardly protruding camera lens

The WIRED iPhone 6 Review: Bigger, Better…and a Little Buggy

 

For the first time, the big question for Apple fans isn't “are you getting a new iPhone?” It's which iPhone are you getting. A 6 or the ginormous 6 Plus? Yes, the 5 came in two flavors too, but let's be real—no one debated whether to get a 5c or a 5s...

Fantastic 8-megapixel camera with improved low light performance, super fast shutter speed, and jaw-dropping 1080p video capture. Zippy overall performance. Surprisingly light and thin

One-handed usability isn’t so easy, despite onscreen workarounds. Phone design is so slick it’s almost slippery. iOS 8 suffers from multiple, regular bugs at this point
