Apple is always in news for one reason or other. And more so now with the release of the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, apart from the tragedy that is iOS 8. Both the handsets, after number of rumors and leaks, are now final.
As you may already know, while the original iPhone 6 is there, the iPhone 6 Plus comes as a bigger variant to that. Both the handsets were launched in order to hit the holiday season that's approaching soon (not to mention Black Friday in US).
So if you have seen both the handsets, you will know that there are a few difference apart from the apparent size of the handsets. Here are the five key differences to note.
The original iPhone 6 offers a curved aluminium build, with gold or light/dark silver colors. It measures in at 6.8mm thickness and weighs a meager 129g. The iPhone 6 Plus, on the other hand, offers a similar curved aluminium build, with gold or light/dark silver colors. It measures in at 7.1mm thickness and weighs in at 179g. Also, the iPhone 6 Plus is a tad bit thicker than the iPhone 6, although both of them are slim.
Compared to the iPhone 6's 4.7-inch display with 1334 x 750 pixel resolution and Retina HD LCD, the iPhone 6 Plus offers a 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and optimized landscape. There are no great differences in display technology between the two, though. And as expected, the iPhone 6 Plus has bigger resolution than the original handset.
Both the handsets offer 8MP camera, 1/3.06-inch sensor, true-tone flash,f/2.2 aperture dual-LED flash and phase detection, Of course, for the new phones, while the sensor has been redesigned, the core specs remain similar. However, the larger handset of two offers optical image stabilization, whereas the iPhone 6 uses software stabilization.
Both the handsets come offering Apple's A8 64-bit and M8 co-processor. Hence you get the same processor in both phones, which is a dual-core 1.4GHz 64-bit CPU. Apple has also included an improved M8 co-processor for both the handsets.
Apart from the size, there's hardly any noticeable difference between both the handsets. They offer similar screen technology, the same processor and same camera to make sure no one in left behind. Hence be it big or small, expect the same Apple experience over both the handsets.
