Reviews for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus

84% Apple iPhone 6 Plus Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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.
100% The original giant-sized iPhone

Be in no doubt, this is a luxurious, high-performance phablet in every sense, but just as with the iPhone 6, Apple is demanding a daunting premium for its work. And with stunning, and arguably more versatile, phablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 also vying for your hefty wodge of cash, there's one key question you should ask yourself before splashing out: do you prefer Android or iOS? Rest assured that whichever you choose, your money will buy you one of the best phablets out there.

Coming to the price. Well, the iPhone 6s Plus 128GB variant is priced at Rs 92,000. It is certainly an excellent phone and the 3D Touch execution is truly innovative. Live photos, 4K video recording, a generally fast user experience is what makes this phone stand out from competition. Sure there are some flaws as well such as limited scenarios for one-handed use, digging into general settings for things which could’ve been implemented in native apps among them.

The iPhone 6s comes out (barely) on top because it is significantly faster (both in real-world scenarios and synthetic benchmarks), and because it simply takes better pictures based on our side-by-side comparisons. The iPhone 6s is no slouch in the features department, either, as its 3D Touch adds a level of immersion to the overall user experience while saving you time.

I’ve tried to cover most of the bigger changes that Apple has made to the new iPhone 6s. There are some other changes as well such as an addition of a 4th microphone and an insanely faster TouchID that barely lets you see the lock screen. Apple has also made the iPhone 6s a bit more water resistant. You get all of that with both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.

It’s become cliché to say but it bears repeating: this is the best iPhone Apple has ever made (and there’d be a serious problem if that weren’t true with each new release). If you’re invested in Apple’s ecosystem and it’s time for an upgrade, you really can’t go wrong with either of the new iPhones. Those coming from other platforms or otherwise contemplating trying an iPhone for the first time have plenty to look forward to but with so many excellent Android phones to choose from at a range of price points and new Windows phones just around the corner, defecting to Apple is a much harder sell than in years past.

On the whole we'd go for the new iPhone 6s Plus if possible. It packs a lot of extra features for the money, and both 3D Touch and Hey Siri have become a regular part of our iPhone experience that we wouldn't want to go without. These alone would be worth the extra £100 it costs to get the newer version, but it's really the faster A9 CPU and 2GB of RAM that are worth the money. We felt the iPhone 6 Plus, with its 1GB of RAM was miserly at the time and feel much more comfortable with the 2GB of RAM on offer on the new model. The phone will last much longer with more RAM. Get the iPhone 6s Plus if possible.

It’s not exactly a lust-worthy product, though—there’s nothing here to sell a kidney for. It’s faster, it’s better, it’s definitely easier to navigate. But the iPhone 6 was already so good, and the Android ecosystem has caught up so quickly, that anyone with a recent flagship phone isn’t missing much here. There’s a catch, though: Once developers have had a year to play with 3D Touch’s full capabilities, you’re definitely going to want an iPhone 7.

It's easy to say that these are the best iPhones Apple has ever made, but that's true every year.

Based on the spec, we’d have to opt for the iPhone 6s Plus – the introduction of 3D Touch and an improved camera are both major plus points for the phone, and that’s without mentioning the upgraded A9 processor and 2GB of RAM. However, with this being said, if you’re not as excited about the iPhone 6s Plus’ 3D Touch display and improved camera as we are, the iPhone 6 Plus is still a fantastic phone and can compete with many 2015 flagship phones.

Years ago, it was rather pointless to directly compare the current iPhone generation with a Galaxy Note powerhouse. The two simply did not belong to the same device category. In 2015, however, we have the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note5, which are clear and formidable opponents. But picking a favorite among the two could be tricky. The phablets are comparable in terms of display size and overall dimensions. Also, the latest Galaxy Note offering is about as attractive and well-designed as the iPhone 6 Plus.

In the clash between the LG G4 and the iPhone 6 Plus, it's virtually impossible to determine a clear winner. Both handsets have their strengths and weaknesses, and picking one over the other will eventually narrow down to personal preferences. The G4, in particular, is a pretty good example of what a smartphone maker might come up with after it's taken its time to perfect a winning formula – the G4 is a surprisingly good all-around device that will most certainly cope with the majority of everyday tasks you might throw at it.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is quite a handset. It has a fabulous screen, fantastic cameras and the power and speed that at least matches the iPhone 6. It does, however, have its flaws, including that super-shiny design. The iPhone 6-like edges are also likely to draw some unwanted negative attention from Apple fans. Ultimately it is a question of price, and whether you prefer Android or iOS. For the reasons outlined in the software section we prefer iOS, but we are very impressed with this Android.

Knowing that they’re in that phablet space, we’re dealt with larger-than-normal screens here.

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.

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.

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.

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.

iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comparison: battle of the flagship phablets

The iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4 are two very different smartphones. Both are top-end powerhouses and although the Note 4 is cheaper and has some hardware not found on its rival, the iPhone 6 Plus is more desirable and offers a more accessible user experience.

Still, if you’re looking for something better suited for mobile gaming, more comfortable browsing or video playback, more spacious typing, and not all that different from the iPhone you’ve been carrying (or once carried) for years, the iPhone 6 Plus is a fantastic buy. And if you feel it might be a smidgen too large, Michael says the iPhone 6 isn’t so bad either.

It’s all a question of size. Can you live with such a big phone? If the answer is yes then there are some clear benefits to getting the big iPhone. Battery life is one, optical image stabilisation the other and that magnificent screen the third. The iPhone 6 Plus is a great phone if you can deal with its size and price. It’s blisteringly fast, lasts for ages and comes with one of the best screens we’ve ever seen. The optical image stabilisation takes the good camera on the iPhone 6 and makes it even better.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review: Following the curve
Source: GSM Arena English
The hardware execution is great - every bit feels of the same premium quality as the corresponding component in the iPhone 6. We don't think the bending issues will be widespread enough to cause panic, but still the iPhone 6 Plus as a sum of its parts is a rather large device. There are 5.7 to 6-inch droids that fit in the same footprint.

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.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus (AT&T)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

All things considered, the iPhone 6 Plus is a great phone if you want a smartphone with a large screen that offers some tablet-like functionality under Apple’s ecosystem. The screen is gorgeous, there’s more than enough power on tap, the camera is among the top in its class and the phone is ridiculously thin. While there are a few design aspects I don’t agree with, the iPhone 6 Plus is otherwise a great phone.

Gizmag highly recommends the iPhone 6 Plus to anyone looking for a kick-ass mobile device that can serve as both big phone and small tablet. If you're already a happy citizen of Apple's walled garden, then I'd say go and buy one right now. If your platform preference is a bit more flexible, then you still can't go wrong here – but it also couldn't hurt to wait and see how the Note 4 sizes up.

The iPhone 6 is Apple’s new iPhone, and the iPhone 6 Plus is a new type of device, one in which Apple will continue to flesh out in upcoming releases, and maybe when it’s thinner and lighter, and the bezels aren’t so large, I would consider it again. But for now, you’ll find the best smartphone in the world in my pocket, and that’s an iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6 Plus is a stunning piece of design, and its sumptuous screen will be a magnificent showpiece for the latest games, movies and web pages. Whether the clever Reachability feature will be enough to solve the problems of such a large smartphone remain to be seen, however, and the price tag remains intimidating. The iPhone 6 Plus is a huge leap from the iPhone 5s, not in terms of technology so much as in terms of its physical presence. It won’t be for everyone, but we are sure that it will pick up many advocates for whom the bigger screen is ideal.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Model:

The iPhone 6 Plus is Apple's answer to the larger screen format made popular by their competitors. Apple has opted to give their newest line of mobile device that organically curved, slim lined look with the usual high build quality. There are 3 colors to choose from; silver, gold and space grey. The offered capacities are 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB.

The 0.28 inch thick iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5 inch LED-backlit widescreen display with IPS technology and it performers splendidly as expected of Retina HD displays. Hardware consists of an A8 dual core chip clocked at 1.4 GHz with 64-bit architecture, a M8 motion co-processor, 1 GB RAM and a PowerVR GX6450 quad core graphics chip. While the hardware might not be as powerful as current specifications allow, everything on the device runs buttery smooth thanks to good hardware/software optimization and the iOS 8.

Image capture quality is very good with the 8 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and even the secondary front facing camera is impressive with its 1.2 MP sensor. There is a fingerprint identity sensor built into the home button and the device ships with Apple Pay; a Visa, MasterCard and AMEX certified credit card payment method. The lithium polymer battery rated at 2915 mAh provides for 384 hours standby time.
