    I went back 'again' to apple to play with the phones and on each 'pair' (pair being 6 and 6+ next to it) in each color in the store, the 6 to me clearly has a whiter cleaner white background in Settings, mail, or anywhere there's a light background. The Plus is noticeably grayer/dimmer. I checked each phone's brightness and auto-bright and they were all the same.

    I noticed weather on the 6 was a lighter happier blue than the Plus.

    I am assuming this is the contrast ratio difference? The 6 has a higher ratio than the Plus. I just didn't think the number difference would be very visible but I think that's what I was seeing. Else perhaps the screens are just different in tone?

    I did prefer the perceived brightness of the 6 and the cleaner background colors. Anyone else notice this? It was instantaneously noticeable to me.

    Yeah, these guys agree with you.

    "Based on our extensive Lab tests and measurements, the iPhone 6 Plus is the Best performing Smartphone LCD display that we have ever tested."

    Oh, wait....
