Apple iPhone 5

With the iPhone 5S being the pinnacle of Apple's current achievement, and the iPhone 5C having been released as an updated iPhone 5, users may be surprised to know that the iPhone 5 still holds its own. The aluminum body is sturdy and beautiful, and still does not look outdated. However, with the competition being what it is, one is not going to get the best performance or a mind-blowing, large screen here. It may not outperform the best out there, but it still runs smoothly enough not to feel like an outdated phone.

One of the obvious benefits of choosing the iPhone 5 at this point in time is that the price would be cheaper than the latest iPhones. The 4 inch screen size might seem dwarfed in comparison with the market leaders out there, but it suffices. Known for its Retina Display with 326 pixels per inch, this 1136 x 640 pixel display delivers great colours and detail. Perhaps the thing that makes the iPhone 5 remain a good choice is the fact that the latest iPhone 5S is a little ahead of its time, and there is a dearth of apps that can actually take advantage of the power it contains. Overall, the iPhone 5 still remains a good choice.

90% Review Apple iPhone 5 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
It's a... smartphone. With the iPhone 5, Apple has introduced the sixth generation of its smartphone family. The Retina display now measures 4 inches, the case has been redesigned, and the new Apple A6 chip provides a boost in performance. NFC, the widely used 720p screen resolution and a carrier-independent LTE module are missing. What does Apple have to offer for a starting price of 679 Euros (~$876), and where does the California brand lag behind?
iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
While the iPhone 5S isn't radically different to the iPhone 5, it's a definite improvement regarding the camera, security and battery life. So for those using your iPhone for work purposes and as a camera replacement, we'd say it's worth an upgrade as early as possible. For anyone else, the updates aren't vital enough to merit rushing to upgrade and we'd instead suggest waiting until the next iPhone is out as this will likely offer a broader range of improvements.

Taking this a standard alone, the iPhone 5 is a superb device. However, it just misses out on an Editor's choice award because it's not quite the giant leap forward from the iPhone 4S in terms of features. Yes, it is insanely quick and we've finally got the 4in screen, but it is expensive. Upgrade if you've got a iPhone 3GS or 4, but wait for the next edition if you've got the 4S.

Is the iPhone 5 the best smartphone ever? If you're an iPhone lover and won't ever leave, without question. It's got a larger screen, a superb new design and generally all the moves required to make it into a worthy evolution. The iPhone 5 is the phone that's the minimum users would want in terms of an upgrade, and finding the balance there is something Apple is more adept at than ever. It's a very, very good phone, but there are plenty of other equivalent devices out there that will suck much less cash from your bank account each month that we think you should check out too.

The iPhone 5 really is much more than a tall iPhone 4S with a new plug. The people may demand a revolution every upgrade season. But Apple may just have supplied what the people need, not what they say they want. And that's a powerful evolution on the theme of iPhone which is currently putting the competiton back on the starting blocks.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Apple iPhone 5 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Although technically a draw, with both phones winning 3.5 rounds, we don't want to sit on the fence after putting the phones through their paces in so much detail. So we're awarding the crown to the S4, as it won in the more important battles. The phone boasts a better camera, slightly faster performance and a clearer display than its Apple competitor. It was a close call, as despite being almost a year old the Apple iPhone still boasts superior build quality, more intuitive and bloatware-free software, and a slightly better battery life than the Galaxy S4. Because of this we're not convinced the S4 will be able to pull off the same feat when facing its real challenger, the next Apple iPhone.

We now know the Galaxy S4 looks quite akin to the Galaxy S3 in design so therefore can't really be mistaken for the iPhone 5. We'll let you decide which you think is more attractive since it's down to personal taste. What is worth pointing out is that the Galaxy S4 uses a largely plastic build with a removable cover while the iPhone 5 is made from glass and aluminium. This is the key difference for us and where the iPhone 5 comes out distinctly on top.

Apple iPhone 5c

The Apple iPhone 5c is only technically a new product. It sports some new cute color options, but at a closer look it is just the iPhone 5 with a slightly cheaper price tag and new colors. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because the iPhone 5 was a good phone. There are a few small tweaks though: iOS 7, slightly extended battery life, and a few minor lowlight improvements to the front facing camera. It has also got more widely compatible global LTE coverage. Overall, it would be difficult for most iPhone 5 users to really tell the difference, if it were not for iOS7. The screen is the same 4 inch, 1136 x 640 pixel Retina display as the iPhone 5's. Nowadays, a 4 inch screen is starting to seem a little small. The bezels of the Apple iPhone 5c seem unnecessarily wide.

At the moment, in terms of performance it is even not too different from the iPhone 5s (with the exception of the fingerprint scanner). However, once more apps and the OS are optimized to take advantage of the more advanced hardware in the 5s, this will change dramatically. In other words, the 5c is really not future proof. The colorful plastic casings do not feel cheap, and give it a comfortable, sturdy heft. Overall, the Apple iPhone 5c is not a bad choice for now, and can still hold its own with the competition despite the seemingly outdated hardware.

Colorful new world. The iPhone 5c has arrived - it is 100 Euros (~$135) cheaper than the new iPhone 5s, comes with a plastic case and is available in a variety of different colors. The innards are basically those of an iPhone 5. So it's neither a true bargain, nor a truly innovative device - but can Apple's new "inexpensive" smartphone still make a compelling case for itself? And what about the new operating system, iOS 7?
100% iPhone 5c review: Apple's mid-range iPhone is the iPhone 5 in disguise
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
If you are trying to decide between the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c it is a question of whether you need all the extras offered by the iPhone 5s. Perhaps you are enticed by the new camera in the 5s, for example. If you need the latest technology it is only £80 more, so it's kind of a no-brainer. But not everyone needs the bells and whistles - for some it's not the processor and the high tech features that matter, but the way a device looks and feels and whether it helps them express their individuality. If you fit in that camp then the iPhone 5c is well worth a look.

The iPhone 5C is a strange phone. While the range of colours will appeal to a lot of people it pales in comparison to the 5S. It is overpriced and underpowered and not up to the standard of other Apple products. Given how close in price the two phones are, it has to be said that the iPhone 5S is much better value, plus you get a metal case, a faster processor and the new M7 motion coprocessor. This is the phone that we'd rather buy.

We've been impressed with the iPhone 5C's battery life. Unless you hammer the device with contant gaming or video playback, it will last a couple of days with regular and varied use. The phone holds its charge incredibly well when not in use - our sample sat on just one percent for a number of hours. We like the Lumia 630, and it is great value. But we'll be sticking with the iPhone 5c and its better camera, battery life and build.

iPhone 5C 8GB vs best budget Android, Windows Phones review: why 8GB iPhone 5c is not a good deal
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Unless you take money out of the equation, or you simply have to have an iPhone, it is difficult to make the case for the 8GB iPhone 5c over budget Androids and Windows phones. You could buy four Moto Gs for the price of the iPhone 5c, and you have to work hard to make a plausible argument that the iPhone 5c is worth even a penny more. The iPhone 5c does offer the best cameras here, and its battery life is good. But the only real reason to chose to pay £429 of it rather than £100 for the Moto G is that it is an iPhone, and you prefer iOS. That being the case, I'd still avoid the 8GB iPhone 5c. Apple still offers the iPhone 4S for £349 which also has 8GB of storage, but here's what you should really do; buy a second-hand iPhone 5 with a decent amount of capacity. A quick search online reveals the phone can be purchased for around £300.

Evenly matched on price, cameras and performance, the HTC One wins on storage and display, whilst the iPhone 5c may just edge it on battery life. Build quality and software are of a similar quality but different. But if you have no strong feelings on design or Android/iOS, you need to opt for the HTC.

Moto G vs iPhone 5C comparison review: Save money or get the iPhone 5S - why the iPhone 5C is a compromise too far
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
These two handsets are both great, evenly matched for storage and performance. We expect that no-one would be disappointed with the purchase of either. The Moto G is bigger and bulkier but has a bigger screen. You will, however, notice the extra money you have in your pocket after choosing the Moto G rather than the iPhone 5C. However, the iPhone 5C has a better camera and greater storage options. And we also prefer iOS to Android - although that is a subjective thing. Finally the iPhone's battery life is better. If you want a budget phone, the Moto G wins. But for all other users the iPhone 5C may well be the better bet. Here comes the controversy: I don't know why you would get the iPhone 5C. If cost is your concern, buy a true budget phone. If you want the best, get an iPhone 5S. Opting for the iPhone 5C is a penny pinching compromise of the worst kind.

The iPhone 5S might be £80 more expensive than the iPhone 5C, but in our opinion it's worth the additional money. As well as a sleeker design, we found that the iPhone 5S Touch ID fingerprint scanner and A7 chip made for a smoother, more responsive experience. The iPhone 5S camera also delivers more natural-looking and detailed images compared to those shot on the iPhone 5C, and we also found that it came out on top in battery life.

Not much else is different. Both phones run iOS 7 by default – which has its detractors, but works fine on each. Both support all current 4G bands, and neither features NFC or 802.11ac Wi-Fi. However, it should be clear by now that there’s only one handset in the running when it comes to winning this particular race – it’s the 5s, and by several lengths. It’s lighter, faster, more desirable, has a better camera, and is considerably more innovative than its plastic-coated cousin.

Not exactly low cost, is it? In the U.S., you may get the iPhone 5C at $99 with a two year contract, but in India, this is essentially replacing the iPhone 5. The aluminum iPhone 5, with the "unapologetically plastic" shell. Pretty much the same internals and specs, but happily, you get a lot more colour options now. If only you can come to terms with a "plastic" iPhone. Unless that is the primary criteria for you, we would suggest picking up the iPhone 5, while it is still available. Or work a tad harder, and pick up the iPhone 5s. Personally, for all its positives, being seen with an iPhone 5c could mean people knowing that you couldn't afford the iPhone 5s. Not many buy the "I like this colour argument". But, if you are beyond the materialistic...

Instead the iPhone 5C is stuck rubbing shoulders with the big guns of 2013, a lot of which have witnessed slight price drops since launch making them cheaper than this Apple offering, and along with sporting better specs and more compelling features, it makes things difficult for the 5C. It's not that Apple has done its best to make the iPhone 5C appealing, but as last year's phone re-packaged its hard to recommend it totally - although the large range of colours and combination with iOS 7 helps enormously.

iPhone 5C v iPhone 4S head–to–head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The result was never in doubt. As you’d expect, the two-year-old iPhone 4S just could not compete with the 5C which is better in almost every department. Conversely, though, in every area the 4S performed well and was by no means put to shame by the 5C’s improved capabilities. As such, for anyone considering an iPhone for the first time, the 4S, at its slightly reduced cost, could prove enticing. For those considering an upgrade and impatient to wait for the 5S, put off by its increased cost, or who want a bright green, yellow, blue or red phone (it does also come in an unoffensive white), the 5C should leave you happy with its improved performance and design.

It's still a very expensive handset, and one that arguably offers less value for money than our A-Listed HTC One, but next to the 5c – which is only £80 cheaper SIM free – it’s an easy choice. If you're in the market for a new iPhone now and are uncertain as to which way to go, the answer has to be to opt for the iPhone 5s. In two years' time, when you're installing iOS 8, you'll almost certainly regret it if you don't.

In the end, though, it's the 5c's price that really lets it down. What we were expecting from Apple when it announced a cheaper version of the iPhone was, well, something that was significantly cheaper than what went before. In fact, what we got was something that's only marginally less expensive, costing £469 SIM free for the 16GB version, and available free only on contracts of £31 per month and above. There's nothing wrong with the hardware, but at this price we feel it doesn't do enough.

It’s not really clear why Apple has made the 5C. It is a great phone, sure, and anyone who does buy one will not feel short changed. But we're not sure who will buy it. The price means it has little chance of competing with Android devices – at any level – as it is more expensive than some high-end devices, and is even on par with the Samsung Galaxy S4. Any businesses considering offering a new Apple device to staff would be better off looking at the iPhone 5S because of its Touch ID fingerprint scanner, which most IT departments will likely see as a great extra level of protection for corporate data. Also, it’s not hard to imagine any executive worth his salt arguing that he can’t be seen with the ‘cheaper’ new iPhone device, even if the 5C still costs a lot of money.

There can be no one verdict on the iPhone 5c - reactions to it are so extreme and subjective that any attempt at an all-encompassing objective pronouncement is impossible. Daft, even. The most we can do is set it in context, and be honest. Lastly, we love the OS. Yes, we can see every one of the things that need fixing, and we know that iOS 7 could have been so much wilder. But the new OS is beautiful, and we like celebrating the delightful, rather than meanly fixating on every failing.

The main difference between the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5 is the colourful plastic casing. It's cheaper than what Apple sold the iPhone 5 for and specs remain largely the same. Added 4G support might be a key upgrade.

iPhone 5c review

With the iPhone 5c, Apple's crafted something that's more than just the sum of its parts. It's easy to be cynical and dismiss this handset as just an iPhone 5 in a colorful plastic shell, but that's missing the point. There's no doubt that the 5c looks gorgeous and feels wonderful in hand.

iPhone 5c Review

We’re not, however, Apple’s only audience, and while the iPhone 5c may be, for the most part, last year’s flagship in this year’s fashion, there’s no denying that there’s an appetite for that. The iPhone 5 remained an excellent option up until its (perhaps premature) retirement, and the iPhone 5c takes the best of that and makes it more eye-catching and more affordable. The power users should look to the iPhone 5s, but for the mass market, the iPhone 5c will open doors that only a colorful, playful device can.

iPhone 5c preview: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
The iPhone 5C is essentially an iPhone 5 in a plastic coat. The features match and also surpass the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and the HTC One Mini it comes to the camera, the quality of the screen and the power of the processor. For those naysayers that wondered if plastic could be premium, we have to admit that Apple has proved them wrong and the colour options will be a big draw for some.

iPhone 5C review - hands on with the budget iPhone 5C
Source: PC Advisor English
It's too early to give the definitive verdict on the iPhone 5C. Suffice to say that Apple has introduced another premium smartphone on to the market without literally or figuratively devaluing its top-of-the-range iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5C should offer excellent performance in a robust shell. An intriguing product.

The similarities that match the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are in many ways as intriguing as the differences. They offer the same battery life and display, and broadly the same software experience. But the iPhone 5S is - we are told - quicker, with a better camera and some additional features. Whether that makes it worth the extra cash only you can decide.

Hands on: iPhone 5C review

Yes, it's mostly the DNA of an iPhone 5, but there's so much more going on here - the colours are going to be a real selling point across the world. We can't see the specs drawing many people in – although those that just buy into the iDream without a thought for what's running under the hood will be chirpy at the thought of having to shell out less cash.

Moto X vs iPhone 5C smartphone comparison review: cheaper Android matches or betters iPhone in every respect
Source: PC Advisor English
These two handsets are both great, evenly matched for storage, camera and battery life. We expect that no-one would be disappointed with the purchase of either. The Moto X is bigger and bulkier but has a bigger screen. It also has better specs although in real-world terms you won't notice the difference. You will, however, notice the extra £100 you have in your pocket after choosing the Moto X rather than the iPhone 5C. So unless you are wedded to the idea of having an iPhone, we can't honestly recommend you choose the 5C over the Moto X.

Apple iPhone 5S

The Apple iPhone 5S is being marketed as the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world. At first glance, the 5S looks almost exactly like the iPhone 5. Weight and size are exactly the same with a few minute differences. The fingerprint sensor (called a Touch ID sensor by Apple) embedded in the home button is one of the forward-thinking features. It can be used to authorize purchases in iTunes, the App Store or iBooks. This is potentially very convenient for those who feel like there are currently too many obstacles to purchasing from said services. It can also add an extra layer of protection for the security conscious. For the parts of the internet that buzz with conspiracy theories, Apple have assured users that scanned fingerprints are encrypted and stored on the device itself, not transmitted to shady government agencies.

The processor is the new dual-core A7 SoC, which comes with support for 64 bit, another forward thinking implementation. For current use though, this only means better handling of games and some power saving benefits. Battery life is decent, easily lasting a day of moderate use. There are a few significantly better Android options out there. Objectively, there are many other smartphones available on the market, which offer more at the same or lower price. But Apple caters mainly to those who don’t want to bother about things like comparisons of specs, made clear by the fact that they do not even release information on their specs. Overall, the Apple 5S is the best iPhone on the market, but it’s not the best phone that money can buy.

Fall is Apple season. One year after the iPhone 5, Apple releases its direct successor, the iPhone 5s. In terms of looks, this is not much more than a mere cosmetic update - the 4-inch IPS display and the chassis remain unchanged. There is only one notable exception, as the new home button now ships with a fingerprint sensor. More updates can be found when examining the iPhone 5s' innards: The new A7 SoC turns Apple's new flagship into one of the fastest smartphones out there. Still, is all of this sufficient to defend the top spot?
iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5S review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Winning five of the 11 categories, the iPhone 6 has come out as the overall winner. Its superior design with the larger build and 4.7in screen, along with the more comfortable to hold casing, make this is better phone to use for anything from making phone calls to watching video. However, despite the fact it is now over a year old, the iPhone 5S still wins out for its lower pricing and its usability for those with smaller hands. And in areas like performance and security, where the improvements on the iPhone 6 are negligible, these aren't enough to make a compelling case for an upgrade.

Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 5s
Source: Phone Arena English
It's clear that if you're on the lookout for a new smartphone now, the iPhone 6 will be a much better investment, seeing that you'll be getting a phone that improves on the 5s' experience in almost every way, with the exception of one-handed comfort. Naturally, the smaller handset will be easier to handle and use, but there's obviously a lot to gain from having a larger screen. That is why many users will be willing to sacrifice a bit of comfort for a significantly larger diagonal. Plus, the new iPhone 6 is not really pushing things too far.

HTC One mini 2 vs iPhone 5s smartphone comparison: baby Androids keep on coming, but the flagship iPhone still has it where it counts
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Considering it almost at the end of its year as Apple's number one, the iPhone 5s still stacks up extremely well against a mid-ranged Android handset. Performance is a win for the iPhone, as is the camera. The displays are a choice between big for viewing pleasure, and small for handling ease. The HTC is more robust, the iPhone more beautiful. And storage options favour the HTC, without it being an entirely clear cut choice. If Apple does as some suggest keep the iPhone 5s as a slightly cheaper option, it will not be a bad deal for new smartphone buyers.

The Xperia Z2 offers expandable storage and a marginally better camera. It is water- and dustproof, offers stereo speakers and has an NFC chip. Moreover later versions of Android are not to be feared.

Granted, Apple will be releasing a replacement for this handset in the next few months (either the iPhone 6 or iPhone Air, depending on who you want to believe), which will most likely have a larger screen. We can't compare this handset to one that doesn't exist, though, so for now, even after being on sale for eight months, the iPhone 5S stands up brilliantly to the competition and remains the brilliantly-made and desirable handset it was at launch.

Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5s smartphone comparison: no good reasons to choose Samsung over iPhone

If you are an iPhone user who is happy with iOS 7 it is unlikely much about the Galaxy S5 will persuade you to make the jump to Android. The Galaxy S5 will be fast, well built, full featured. It will have a big bright and bold screen, and good cameras, and it will offer good storage and connectivity options. But all of the above is true of the iPhone 5S. The days are over when Apple was far ahead of other smartphone makers, but it remains at the top of the tree when it comes to making high-class phones.

iPhone 5s vs LG G3 comparison review: How does LG's newest smartphone compare to the iPhone 5s?
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
We were wowed by the LG G3's display, there's no denying it. But we think it's just too big at 5.5in and much prefer the smaller, lighter and more portable form factor of the iPhone 5s, which also has a delightful display. They're both powerful handsets, and don't differ in price dramatically, so it's going to be down to personal preference when choosing between these two great smartphones. If you want bigger and prefer Android devices, it's a no brainer that the LG G3 is for you. But for anyone who already owns an iPhone, we say buy the iPhone 5s or wait for the iPhone 6. Plus, those new to smartphones will probably find iOS easier to get used to, and anyone looking for a phone they can carry in their pocket and operate with one hand should also choose the iPhone 5s.

It's difficult to be entirely prescriptive without fully testing the LG G3, but this much we can say: both the iPhone 5s and the LG G3 are great handsets, and they will cost around the same, with the LG being a bit cheaper. They are fast and well built. On the one hand the LG G3 definitely has the better display, but the iPhone 5s is smaller and easier to operate with one hand. Ultimately your decision will be personal. For me I'd opt for the LG for the display. Your decision may differ!

Source: Macworld.co.uk English
The iPhone 5s has proven to be a popular smartphone, and according to a research report published in early April, it has been the world's most popular smartphone ever since it launched in September 2013. Counterpoint research's worldwide smartphone survey showed that the iPhone 5s has maintained its position as best selling smartphone worldwide. In second place is the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 4s is in fifth position behind the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Note 3. Of course, we have no idea what to expect from the iPhone 6 and it may well be that the iPhone 5s will suit your needs better. As we explained above, the 64-bit operating system and other features of the phone will stand it in good stead for the future, so you can be sure that if you buy an iPhone 5s it will still be an excellent phone in a few years from now.

At first, Apple's decision to stick with the same case and screen size may have seemed like it wasn't moving forwards, but after using the phone extensively we couldn't disagree more. It's incredibly fast, beating its quad-core rivals hands down, has plenty of resolution for web browsing and apps, fits neatly into a pocket, has a great camera and still the best, fastest mobile OS. If you've got an iPhone 5 there's probably not quite enough here to make you upgrade, particularly when you can get iOS 7 as a free upgrade. For other iPhone users or people that want a fast pocket-friendly handset with a great mobile OS, there's nowhere else to look.

The LG G2 is without a doubt a great deal. If you are in the market for an Android phone we can't recommend it enough. And you would save some money buying the LG over upgrading to the most recent high-end iPhone.

Not much else is different. Both phones run iOS 7 by default – which has its detractors, but works fine on each. Both support all current 4G bands, and neither features NFC or 802.11ac Wi-Fi. However, it should be clear by now that there’s only one handset in the running when it comes to winning this particular race – it’s the 5s, and by several lengths. It’s lighter, faster, more desirable, has a better camera, and is considerably more innovative than its plastic-coated cousin.

Smartphones have reached a cruising speed where they steadily evolve at a slower pace (in %) in terms of processing power and functionality. The iPhone 5s evolution definitely keeps Apple as a major player in the smartphone race and should give it a nice boost going into the holiday season. The key points of the iPhone 5s for me are the: improved camera, the single-core performance and the new fingerprint reader since they all add to a better user experience.

iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
While the iPhone 5S isn't radically different to the iPhone 5, it's a definite improvement regarding the camera, security and battery life. So for those using your iPhone for work purposes and as a camera replacement, we'd say it's worth an upgrade as early as possible. For anyone else, the updates aren't vital enough to merit rushing to upgrade and we'd instead suggest waiting until the next iPhone is out as this will likely offer a broader range of improvements.

No two ways about it, the iPhone 5s is an excellent smartphone. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s amazingly quick, boasts a superb camera and display, and is beautifully designed and put together. If your next handset absolutely has to be an iPhone, it’s a far better option than the more basic iPhone 5c. This probably won’t be enough to put off iPhone diehards, who will upgrade come what may, and it certainly doesn’t make the iPhone a terrible smartphone. For us, though, it doesn’t do enough to justify such a high price.

The iPhone 5S is, predictably, the best iPhone ever from Apple - but what's intriguing is just how much we enjoyed using this evolutionary device. There's always an apathy with any kind of 'S' device from Apple, as it's historically just the same thing made a little bit better. It's true the advances on the iPhone 5S are few, but the ones that are there are very impressive indeed. So to say this is the best iPhone yet is relatively pointless, as of course it was going to be. But the combination of iOS 7 to freshen things up with a powerful core and great camera mean that this phone should be considered on its own considerable merits, and while the high price will continue to put many off, anyone already wedded to the iPhone bandwagon, or even if they're just on the fence, will find a lot of joy in a phone that's a lot more than an iterative update.

At the end of the day, the iPhone 5s is an excellent phone, but whether it’s the right choice for you will depend on what you are looking for in a device. If a smallish screen and an ecosystem that’s still locked down substantially compared to Android isn’t a problem, the 5s is a great choice. If you desire a phone that pushes the bounds of tablet territory like a Galaxy Note 3 and you want more freedom over the OS, keep looking.

90% iPhone 5S review: Apple's best iPhone yet
Source: PC Advisor English
If you already own an iPhone 5, it’s hard to justify upgrading to the 5S. Yes, it’s considerably faster and takes better photos and videos in low light, but the 5 is still a great smartphone and has at least another year in it before apps (and possibly iOS 8) start to find the A6 processor’s limits. Those with a 4S (or 4) are in for a treat, though. As well as serious performance gains, the bigger screen and lighter weight make a huge difference, and the fingerprint scanner is a bonus. Ultimately, if you want an iPhone, the 5S won’t disappoint and is one of the most future-proof of the current smartphone crop.

iPhone 5C v iPhone 4S head–to–head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The result was never in doubt. As you’d expect, the two-year-old iPhone 4S just could not compete with the 5C which is better in almost every department. Conversely, though, in every area the 4S performed well and was by no means put to shame by the 5C’s improved capabilities. As such, for anyone considering an iPhone for the first time, the 4S, at its slightly reduced cost, could prove enticing. For those considering an upgrade and impatient to wait for the 5S, put off by its increased cost, or who want a bright green, yellow, blue or red phone (it does also come in an unoffensive white), the 5C should leave you happy with its improved performance and design.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c review
Source: PC Pro English
It's still a very expensive handset, and one that arguably offers less value for money than our A-Listed HTC One, but next to the 5c – which is only £80 cheaper SIM free – it’s an easy choice. If you're in the market for a new iPhone now and are uncertain as to which way to go, the answer has to be to opt for the iPhone 5s. In two years' time, when you're installing iOS 8, you'll almost certainly regret it if you don't.

100% iPhone 5s review
Source: T3 English
We kicked off this review by stating the 5s has the potential to be Apple’s most game-changing iPhone since inception. Apple is clearly looking to future-proof its handset while offering developers the opportunity to take advantages of its 64-bit architecture, A7 chip and M7 Coprocessor. Right now, you won’t really experience what this phone is capable of. Give it six months and we’d expect some truly groundbreaking apps to appear. But then this is a statement of intent. It’s not only Apple’s flagship iPhone but it’s also the best phone the company has ever made. The camera is extraordinary. Touch ID is revolutionary. The iPhone 5s is a stunner today, but expect the real fun to come tomorrow.

The iPhone 5s marks an interesting waypoint for Apple. The company is using last year's mechanical design (by and large, anyway), but this year's iOS. It's quite clear from iOS 7's colorful motif that the operating system was designed with the also-colorful iPhone 5c line in mind.

Apple iPhone 5C video review

Clearly, iPhone 5 owners shouldn’t consider upgrading to the 5C, but it might make sense for those with an iPhone 4 or 4s. However, the iPhone 5s is much more powerful, has a better rear camera and a useful fingerprint reader. If you can afford the extra £10 per month on contract, or £80 to buy it outright, the 5S is the better choice.

The Apple haters are wrong about the iPhone 5s: this is one hell of a phone. It’s far more of an upgrade than it first seems, both as a result of its upgraded, forward-thinking hardware and its excellent new OS. Had the 5s launched with a bigger, more pixel-packed display, it could very well be going back to the top of our list of the best smartphones in the world. As it is, Android still reigns supreme. At least it does until the 6in iPhone 6 comes out next year. Got that, Apple?

Would we pick the iPhone 5s over the iPhone 5c? In a heartbeat. The camera, convenience, and performance increases make that a no-brainer decision for smartphone power users. That trifecta of talents also makes a strong case against the top-tier Android devices, too: Apple still dominates the market for hand-friendly phones with flagship performance. The iPhone 5s may be Apple’s evolutionary stage, but the combination of usable technological advances and the benefits of iOS 7 add up to a supremely compelling device.

For starters, the 5S is externally almost exactly the same as the existing iPhone 5, including the same 4in screen size. There are some notable differences, namely the larger flash (which means some iPhone 5 cases won't fit properly), the steel-rimmed Home button (more on that later) and the all-new colour finish option, but aside from those it's nearly indistinguishable from its predecessor.

The iPhone 5S isn't a market-leading device in so many ways; but then again, that's never been Apple's strategy, and that's a good thing. And if you're one of those that deserted the platform after poor battery problems or signal issues, you'll especially like the iPhone 5S, which feels like one of Apple's most stable devices to date while carrying on the tradition of a close eye on premium design.

Almost hard to believe, the Google Nexus 6 and Apple iPhone 6 bear the same outright price point of $649 – though, you get 16GB of storage with the iPhone 6, and 32GB with the Nexus 6. Determining a victor is rather tough, especially when there’s not a single phone that greatly proves to deliver the better performance over the other. With that in mind, we can certainly agree at the very least, that you won’t be disappointed picking up either of them.

As we stated in our review of the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple's two new devices are very similar in terms of the experience they deliver, with only the screen size setting them apart. Thus, users can choose the screen size (and physical size) that suits them better, without feeling as though they've compromised by picking a lesser device either way. In the Android world, larger phones tend to hog all the best features, and "mini" versions are almost always cut down.

The iPhone 6 will please Apple fans as it offers a faster yet familiar user experience, has a great display, a market-leading camera, and excellent call quality.

On the downside, the iPhone 6 lacks in features compared with rivals. For example, it’s not waterproof, you can’t expand the storage and you can’t use NFC for transferring data. Also, despite the improvements in iOS 8, it’s sill not as flexible as Android. If these are things that matter to you, consider other alternatives such as the Galaxy S5 or the LG G3. If you are already an iPhone user and are unhappy with the screen size, the iPhone 6 is worth the upgrade. But iPhone 5s users, in particular, won’t find much of a conceivable difference in terms of the overall performance.

Motorola DROID Turbo vs Apple iPhone 6

The Motorola Droid Turbo is one of the most powerful Android devices ever made, ready to overlook elegance in favor of raw silicon power, and the latest specs. In this, it reminds us in many ways of computers dedicated to gaming, down to their masculine looks - the Droid Turbo is like a little armored soldier, with its Kevlar back and durable materials. We’re happy to see the Droid Turbo is a little spec madness: with top performance, and a Quad HD 5.2” display, all subject of geek wet dreams. The Droid Turbo is close to being the perfect phone for that geek audience, and in this line of thought, it’s a pity that the phone only arrives on Verizon Wireless.

However, despite the fact it is now over a year old, the iPhone 5S still wins out for its lower pricing and its usability for those with smaller hands. And in areas like performance and security, where the improvements on the iPhone 6 are negligible, these aren't enough to make a compelling case for an upgrade.

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 comparison review: Apple takes on Samsung once again in smartphone wars
Source: PC Advisor English
The iPhone 6 and Galaxy S5 are two very different smartphones with iOS and Android remaining the big difference. Other than this there's the price, design, storage and additional features to consider.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha vs Apple iPhone 6
Source: Phone Arena English
Pricing alone indicates that these two smartphones are competing head-on against one another, where it’ll cost consumers $200 to pick them up on-contract. If we’re to look at what they offer on paper, from a specs sheet and features set standpoint, it’s almost certainly obvious that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha would garner more attention – more so considering its software experience proves to be more diversified than iOS 8. Not only that, it has a premium design that matches its high-end quality, which was lacking in the past with Sammy’s devices.

Instead of deciding what's right or wrong, Apple is now ready to deliver what the users are asking for. The iPhone 6 is bigger, yet thinner than its predecessor. Its design may not surpass the charm of the iPhone 5s, but is still one of the best in the industry. The camera and music quality are also great. So if you're planning to buy a top-end smartphone this Diwali, the iPhone 6 is definitely a great option. However, if you're already using the iPhone 5s, better hold on to it.

iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Alpha vs. Xperia Z3 Compact: Three kings
Source: GSM Arena English
It's impossible to tally up a final score for this but that was never the point - as usual, the point is to help different users pick out the phone that's right for them. The super mini playground is not as empty as it once was and these three phones are excellent picks at three different price points. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is the most affordable of the bunch so it celebrates each of its victories a little louder than the other two. The Apple iPhone 6 meanwhile is easily the most expensive one and has the most to prove, yet its fans are rarely swayed by such mundane details such as pricing.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Apple iPhone 6

Indeed, the Note 4 has quite a bit going for it, granted that you're ready to stomach its chubbier profile. The Note 4's screen is not only much larger, but also proved to be the one that is better, more true-to-life (even if not by far), and its arsenal of extra features works well with it. The Note 4's camera is also more flexible, and image quality is right up there with the best – in fact, outdoor shots during the day ended up slightly better than the iPhone 6's. Its optical image stabilization mechanism also helps you record shake- and tremor-free footage. But perhaps the biggest advantage of Samsung's latest device is its far superior battery life – a very valid concern with most of us.

I love the subtle changes made to the latest design. The clarity of the display is very impressive, but if you are not put off by a bigger chassis then you may wish to opt for the iPhone 6 plus, which features a full 1080 HD resolution. The other issue for me is the price. Apple’s retail price for the iPhone 6 is £539 and £619 for the 6 Plus, which is on the expensive side in what is an increasingly crowded marketplace. However, when it comes to quality and design, in my opinion, there is nothing to rival the iPhone 6 on the market at the time of writing this review.

The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 are both similar to earlier incarnations, but the new handset and the new mobile OS offer plenty of new functionality too. Taken together they make the iPhone 6 a great example of how to maintain the familiarity of previous releases while delivering significant enhancements (and iOS 8 adds many more new features than we've covered here). Overall there's enough on offer to entice existing iPhone owners to invest in an upgrade, and plenty to attract converts to the iPhone ecosystem.

While the iPhone 6 isn't the cheapest smartphone out there, Apple has reduced the cost compared to the iPhone 5S, so buyers get a better model for slightly less, and the pricing is comparable to other high-end flagship models from rivals.

My experience with the iPhone 6 ends like I expected it to. The phone was impressive in battery life, camera, display, and performance categories, but I was ultimately left frustrated by the intricacies of iOS 8 that differ from Android. From Settings and Notifications handling to the silos that still exist while developers get their apps ready for Extensions to that damn physical home button. It’s obvious that Apple has created an experience that they feel is the best for everyone, except they forgot about the tinkerers of the world and those of us who want ultimate control, who want to customize a phone’s experience, and who don’t want to be told that their phone should be used a certain way.

Our iPhone 6 vs HTC One M8 comparison shows us that Android phones are now every bit as capable as iPhones, although not in this case sufficiently different or better to make us want to switch. The HTC One M8 enjoys excellence in design and build, is a top performer and has a beautiful display. Storage options are limited, but an expansion slot is a bonus. If you are an iPhone user it is unlikely you will decide to upgrade to the HTC One M8 rather than the iPhone 6, but if you want to move from iOS to Android you could do a lot worse.

The 4.7-inch screen makes the iPhone 6 a very different proposition if you have an iPhone 4/4S/5/5S. The extra real-estate offers a great benefit that Android users have been enjoying for years now and comes with the added benefit of the best apps around, which will take full advantage of the extra space. One-handed use isn’t quite as intuitive, but it's nothing like using some of the Android giants; the iPhone 6 is slim and narrow enough to make life easy unless you have very small hands. The iPhone 6 is Apple’s best phone yet – but we expected nothing less. It might not be a design classic like the iPhone 4 or iPad mini, but it nevertheless looks and feels great. Like the 5S before it the iPhone 6 manages to do everything with aplomb – it has no serious weaknesses.

We say “near-perfect” because there’s certainly room for improvement here. The fourth- and fifth-generation iPhones were stunning pieces of hardware design, and the iPhone 6 doesn’t quite live up to that legacy. Add to that the few bumps and bugs we found in iOS 8 (along with the spectacular failure of its 8.0.1 OTA update) and you’re reminded that, for all its vaunted precision, the iPhone is, in some ways, just another smartphone. It’s also a particularly expensive one: as the Nexus 5 and OnePlus One demonstrate, you can find devices of similar or greater capability for much less.

It's really difficult to give a verdict on the iPhone 6. If you are an iPhone user, and you specifically want an iPhone, it is the best yet. As such it is a slick, well-built, beautifully designed handset. Performance is good, the display is good, and the iOS eco-system is, well, good. The difficulty lies in quantifying the value of the iPhone 6 in the wider market. Step over to the Android world and you could get a similar experience with a better display for a lot less money. And you could expand the storage. There is no question that these days there is better value in the Android world, but value isn't really the point with an iPhone. iPhones are great, and the iPhone 6 is the best yet. If you are dedicated to using an Apple phone, it should be your next handset.

Both of the new iPhone 6 models are expensive propositions, but the iPhone 6 Plus - particularly at the upper storage capacities - is really going to test some wallets. Whether they do enough to justify their price tags is debatable, but these are extremely desirable products. The iPhone 6 is a beautiful smartphone with a great screen, the NFC equipment to give you access to Apple Pay when it launches here next year and (of course) a brilliant operating system; the iPhone 6 Plus adds longer battery life and a very high-resolution and even bigger screen. Features-wise you can probably get more of the latest innovations from the Android line-up but the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus offer stronger security, a higher standard of apps and a user experience which many will prefer. Still used to the screens of the iPhone 5 series, we might be tempted to save a little money and go for the iPhone 6 and its cautiously expanded form factor; but those who fancy the better media and gaming potential of a 5.5-inch iPhone screen will be well served by the 6 Plus.

That’s better for displaying photos and videos, of course, and often for just allowing more information to fit on the screen. But there’s also a cost: The smaller your hands are, the harder these phones are to handle.

Times change, however, and the smart smartphone changes along with them. The public asked for bigger and Apple delivered not only bigger but better, too. A stunning Retina HD display, blisteringly fast A8 processor, and class-leading connectivity make these the best iPhones ever. 2014 has been a great year in mobile, and Apple just raised the bar even higher.

iPhone 6 deep-dive review: A major new step in design and performance
Source: Computerworld.com English
That being said, I love the hardware: it's sleek, gorgeous and incredibly well built. The way the glass subtly curves to meet the aluminum casing shows its quality, with tolerances and materials that make many rival phones feel cheap and toy-like. While the iPhone 6 may not have the densest pixel count or biggest screen, the display still hits high marks as one of the best LCDs available on mobile devices, featuring great viewing angles, as well as vibrant and uniform colors (even in direct sunlight).

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 the mocking of the competition and frustration of the owners about the unintentionally flexible iPhone.

Source: Phone Arena English
Knowing that they’re in that phablet space, we’re dealt with larger-than-normal screens here. Specs have a way of dictating things, which is evident here from a cursory look, as the Nexus 6’s 5.96-inch 1440 x 2560 AMOLED display trumps the iPhone 6 Plus’ 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 Retina Display. Obviously, there’s a huge advantage with the Nexus 6 when it comes to pixel density, but in all fairness, it’s still tough to discern its superiority from a normal viewing distance – though, it becomes evident upon closer inspection.

60% Apple iPhone 6 Plus Review: The Most Awkward iPhone So Far
Source: Techtree.com English
The iPhone 6 Plus is a power-packed device with unbeatable gaming performance. It also features the best screen Apple has to offer. In the camera department, low-light performance and the slow-motion features are amazing. On the other hand, it's the most unwieldy phone the Cupertino company has produced so far. The bigger size has not only hurt the usability of the new iPhone, but also taken away the class and elegance you expect from Apple. In short, if you use a 5.5-inch Android "phablet" for making calls, you are an idiot. And if you use a 5.5-inch iPhone for making calls, then you are an idiot with a lot of money. Possibly, most techies will defend the large screen phones for now. However, a few years from now, we will all look back and laugh at these phones.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Source: Phone Arena English
At the end of the day, both phablets will present consumers with cutting-edge performance and capabilities, but consumers will have to decide if they want to go the Samsung/Android way, or the Apple way. Each has clear advantages and disadvantages on the platform level, but if allow ourselves to focus exclusively on the devices at hand, we could say that they are both winners. One last detail we have to take into account is that the Galaxy Note Edge is a bit more expensive than the iPhone 6 Plus, as it's priced at $399 on a two-year contract, while the 6 Plus is $299 on a two-year contract. It looks like that forward-looking Edge display has a premium attached to it, but oh well, hopefully it won't be long before it goes through a little price adjustment.

Source: Tweaktown English
There you have it, my review on the iPhone 6 Plus. Do you see that I actually enjoyed a considerable amount of it? I think by now, you should see that iOS is the problem with Apple, and not the iPhone itself. Apple has been losing at the software game for quite some time now, and this needs to change. Second, if you're a Google user and deep into Google services, steer clear. Android is far superior (no matter what you say iOS fanboys, be gone) and you will regret it. Google has various apps tied into the iPhone, but they are nowhere near as powerful as they are on Android. If you don't use Google apps that much and just 'use an Android phone' or 'own a Galaxy phone', then you might actually enjoy what Apple has on offer with the new iPhone.

So what is the appeal of Apple's first giant phone after all is considered? It's a great device if you're looking to replace your handheld gaming console, video camera, tablet and smartphone with a single unit, and in that sense, it's a more attractive product than the iPhone 6.

I must admit, I didn’t expect I’d like the iPhone 6 Plus. When it came out, this journalist saw the almost identical specs and the not-so-unique screen size, and almost brushed it off, feeling like it would be one of the first “me too” products Apple had built in years, or ever. But after almost a week with it, the extra larger iPhone 6 Plus is growing on me.

The larger screen, long battery life and great performance make up for minor niggles like certain features not being available in the UK. While the iPhone 6 Plus isn't the cheapest smartphone out there, the pricing is comparable to other premium phablets from rivals and for Apple fans, you get the reliable and user-friendly iOS experience with a high-quality large display. However, the larger size won't suit everyone, as it's not easy to use one-handed and typing will be awkward for those with smaller hands.

Google Nexus 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison: Nexus 6 is bigger than iPhone 6 Plus and in some ways better (but not all)
Source: PC Advisor English
The iPhone 6 Plus and Nexus 6 are fairly evenly matched, but there are some pros and cons to both. If you're already a huge fan of Android or iOS, then the decision is made a lot easier due to the software you'll find on these two smartphones. The iPhone 6 Plus offers a bigger storage option (but it's rather expensive), a more premium look and a Touch ID fingerprint scanner, but the Nexus 6 offers a bigger and better screen, front-facing speakers and probably a lower price tag though we'll have to wait for official confirmation for that one.

My first day with the iPhone 6 Plus has been a surprising one. I didn't come into it thinking that I would hate the iPhone, but I didn't think I would enjoy so much of it so much. The display simply blows me away, and I will find it hard to go back to my Xperia Z2 after this. The question I have is, what if Apple allowed Android on its devices? What if Apple opened up Android and hired some custom OS making companies that have been toying around with Android? Imagine if Apple had purchased Cyanogen, for example. This is what I want to see, as iOS is a massive hurdle for me. It is something that will keep me from ever owning an iPhone for myself.

If you're an iOS lover looking for a big-screened smartphone, the iPhone 6 Plus is a no-brainer, though we'd seriously consider whether the 4.7in iPhone 6 is big enough for your needs, but for Android phablet fans we've no doubt that the Nexus 6 will appeal.

I was impressed with the iPhone 6, and I am again impressed with the iPhone 6 Plus which knocks the smaller phone into a cocked hat in terms of battery life.

With Samsung being credited with the popularization of the phablet form factor, it comes as no surprise that most consumers expect these to be super functional pieces of hardware, filled to the brim with extras and perks. But that's actually synonymous with Samsung, not the phablet category, and that becomes apparent with the iPhone 6 Plus, which, despite its relatively empty bag of goodies, makes for an awesome phablet experience. But it's not as simple as just “pick the Note 4 if you want features; go for the 6 Plus if you want simplicity”, and it never was.

80% Apple iPhone 6 Plus review: Apple's biggest and best phone yet but it's not for everyone
Source: PC Advisor English
As with the iPhone 6, it's hard to come to a conclusion about the iPhone 6 Plus. For a start, it’s unusual for Apple not to make the first move, so while the iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest and fastest iPhone ever, there are even bigger smartphones with higher resolution screens in the Android stable. There’s also the unknown for a lot of people. Is a 5.5in screen too big? Conversely, is it big enough to replace a tablet such as the iPad mini? These are questions that have no definitive answers: screen size is and will always be a personal preference. There will be iPhone owners that will prefer to stick with a smaller screen and opt to hold onto their iPhone 5s / 5c / 5 or buy a 4.7in iPhone 6. Others will love the extra size for browsing websites, watching videos, using detailed apps (such as Garageband) and browsing their iCloud Photo Library. Yet more might feel that 5.5in isn’t enough to comfortably browse some websites or use fiddly controls in apps. As Jason Snell observed above, if you’re not sure, it’s well worth heading to an Apple store to try out an iPhone 6 Plus before you buy. One thing is for sure: the iPhone 6 Plus is expensive. If you're a dedicated iPhone user and would never consider switching to Android, you'll save money by going for the smaller iPhone 6. But saving money has never been a goal for most iPhone buyers and on that basis, the iPhone 6 Plus is a very fine smartphone indeed.

The hardware execution is great - every bit feels of the same premium quality as the corresponding component in the iPhone 6.

This is Apple’s first generation phablet so there’s room for improvement. Although the 6 Plus has a superb display and great battery life, we found it too cumbersome for everyday usage. At 4.7ins the iPhone 6 has a manageable size, the same processor/1GB RAM and almost identical camera. Unless battery life and extra screen space is essential - we'd recommend the smaller iPhone 6.

As for choosing AT&T as your carrier, take a look at our Fastest Mobile Networks results. AT&T came in the middle of the pack this year; it doesn't have Verizon's fast XLTE speeds, or Sprint and T-Mobile's low prices. What it does have is better LTE coverage than the two lower-cost carriers, especially in rural and suburban areas—upstate New York and New England, for instance, have much better AT&T than T-Mobile or Sprint coverage. Remember, if you buy an unlocked phone up front, you can try out several carriers until you find the right mix of coverage and service for you.

While the iPhone 6 Plus is a great phone -- it has an excellent display, strong performance and above-average battery life -- I prefer a phone that I can comfortably use in one hand.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (review): Bigger display, longer-lasting battery steals the show
Source: Zdnet.com English
Apple's track record of device build quality and attention to detail remains untarnished. Although the iPhone 6 Plus is larger, there's been a considerable effort to maintain the hands-on usability factor. It's thin at 7.1 millimeters, and has rounded edges, making it easier to hold. The iPhone 6 Plus's power button shifted away from the top of the device, where it was located on earlier versions, to the right-hand edge, avoiding any need to overreach.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs LG G3
Source: Phone Arena English
Picking between the iPhone 6 Plus and the LG G3 may feel like an overwhelming task – after all, the two trade blows left and right. With Apple's first phablet, you're getting a more stylish, but much bulkier device, with a less-detailed screen that is nevertheless perfectly fine. The 6 Plus is also a considerably better performer in day-to-day tasks and apps execution, and its camera is, on the whole, a notch better than what LG has going on.

iPhone 6 Plus video review: iPhone 6 Plus is just too big and too expensive

The iPhone 6 Plus has some features not even available on the regular model such as a Full HD resolution and optical image stabilisation. However, we feel it's too big and expensive for most users.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus: GORGEOUS FAT pixel density - but it's WASTED
Source: Reg Hardware English
Technically, meanwhile, the 2208x1242 to 1920x1080 scaling is so obviously suboptimal that the iPhone 6 Plus feels like a stopgap, launched to establish a class of device before the technology had been fully worked out. It doesn’t seem fanciful to wonder if, like the iPad 3, it might be rather speedily replaced.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (hands on): Already replaced my Android phone

After just a couple of days, the iPhone 6 Plus has already proven itself to be the best phone I’ve ever owned. The hardware, OS, and apps work together to make using it enjoyable and useful. It is so much better than the Galaxy Note 2 I’ve used for years with Android.

Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Source: Phone Arena English
The iPhone 6 Plus isn't that different from the iPhone 6. Still, it isn't simply a supersized iPhone 6, as well. It's more like a heavy-duty iPhone 6, designed to cater to the needs of users who want to get some more productivity out of their mobile handset. With its bigger screen, the slight iOS 8 enhancements, and better battery life, the iPhone 6 Plus is the bigger and better variant of the iPhone 6. You call yourself a hardcore mobile user who's into the Apple ecosystem? It looks like the iPhone 6 Plus has been made for you.

90% Apple iPhone 6 Plus Review
Source: Phone Arena English
No doubt, Apple is testing the waters with the iPhone 6 Plus. For the company, the move to compete in the phablet space is a logical one, since consumers are increasingly seeing the value of having a gigantic screen in a phone. Sure, it can make you look a little obnoxious holding a massive thing to your ear, but there are obviously advantages to having a big screen at our disposal.

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison: which new iPhone is best?
Source: PC Advisor English
It's too early to give a definitive verdict, but if you prefer a smaller screen, go for the iPhone 6 with 64GB of storage. Avoid the 16GB model. If you want a larger screen and better-stabilised video, the 64GB iPhone 6 Plus should be a good choice.

80% Apple iPhone 6 Plus review

The iPhone 6 Plus will undoubtedly be too big for some hands. It's far bigger physically than any previous iPhone but also bigger than any comparable Android. The LG G3, which has the same size screen, is dwarfed by it. Even the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, with its 5.7in display, is shorter.

100% Apple iPhone 6 Plus review
Source: T3 English
The iPhone 6 Plus is a big departure for Apple – a BIG departure – and one initially we weren’t onboard with, but its software stabilisers have helped us to stop worrying and learn to love the phablet. The full-HD screen (finally) is stunning, with so much display to get lost in, while the build tries its hardest to be as size-flattering as possible. The tweaks in iOS 8 are focused and shave noticeable seconds off tasks, while landscape mode is incredibly natural for typing and organising, and a design choice we wish had made it to the standard iPhone 6 just for its functionality.

90% The big iPhone is here, with a stunning design and sizeable body
Source: Techradar English
Combining premium design and Apple's high level of finesse the iPhone 6 Plus is a highly accomplished smartphone which will hit all the right marks for anyone desperate for a big screened iPhone. Android fans hell-bent on a phablet sized smartphone full to the brim with the latest tech and monster power are unlikely to favour the iPhone 6 Plus, which on paper doesn't stack up in terms of raw specs. But that won't matter to Apple, or to those who part with a princely sum of money to own an iPhone 6 Plus.

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus: Helping you decide which iPhone 6 model to buy
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Both of the new iPhone 6 models are expensive propositions, but the iPhone 6 Plus - particularly at the upper storage capacities - is really going to test some wallets. Whether they do enough to justify their price tags is debatable, but these are extremely desirable products. The iPhone 6 is a beautiful smartphone with a great screen, the NFC equipment to give you access to Apple Pay when it launches here next year and (of course) a brilliant operating system; the iPhone 6 Plus adds longer battery life and a very high-resolution and even bigger screen. Features-wise you can probably get more of the latest innovations from the Android line-up but the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus offer stronger security, a higher standard of apps and a user experience which many will prefer. Still used to the screens of the iPhone 5 series, we might be tempted to save a little money and go for the iPhone 6 and its cautiously expanded form factor; but those who fancy the better media and gaming potential of a 5.5-inch iPhone screen will be well served by the 6 Plus.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus review: Bigger is in fact better (in the right hands)
Source: Computerworld.com English
Make no mistake: The most important new thing about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is their size. While their processors run faster and their cameras focus more exactingly, the real story is that these are larger phones with larger screens. That’s better for displaying photos and videos, of course, and often for just allowing more information to fit on the screen. But there’s also a cost: The smaller your hands are, the harder these phones are to handle.

Times change, however, and the smart smartphone changes along with them. The public asked for bigger and Apple delivered not only bigger but better, too. A stunning Retina HD display, blisteringly fast A8 processor, and class-leading connectivity make these the best iPhones ever. 2014 has been a great year in mobile, and Apple just raised the bar even higher.

Finally, the iPhone 6 Plus doesn’t come with a stylus. Samsung’s Note phones have stylus pens, and some people really like them. But Apple is standing by Steve Jobs’s theory that the best styluses are our fingers.

iPhone 6 Plus vs Galaxy Note 4 comparison: Apple's first phablet has the design and power to take on the best Samsung can offer
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Apple has done a great job with the iPhone 6 Plus. It is a small iPad, as well as a large-screen iPhone. It may lack some of the raw power and display performance of the Galaxy Note 4, but we don't feel that you will find it lacking in either area. And the all-round excellence of the iPad ecosystem and user experience will give the iPhone 6 Plus the edge for existing iPhone users looking for a larger screen.

The iPhone 6 Plus is an interesting device and one that will make many iPhone upgraders torn between screen sizes. The device size is undeniably large, even though it is thin, but the extra features like the bump in screen quality and resolution, and optical image stabilisation, will make a difference to some users.
