    The display of the iPhone 6 Plus has 401 ppi, the display of the iPhone 6 has 326 ppi.

    Which display is better in your opinion?

    The 6+ display is objectively better.

    Keep in mind that the 6 has a slightly better contrast ratio than the 6+.

    I don't think it really matters. It boils down to what screen size you want.

    Thank you.

    Okay, so you think there isn't a big difference?

    That is true. The 6 actually has slightly better display specs than the 6+ but it's so close the differences are negligible and not discernible to the average user. The PPI difference, however, is noticeable...hence why displaymate crowned the 6+.

    I had a 6 before my 6+ and it was fairly easy to see pixels and some jaggedness to the text at normal viewing distance. I have yet to see a pixel on the 6+.

    Actual image quality wise, it's so close that I can't see a difference. Both look awesome. Pick the phone based on the size you like.

    I had the chance to play with a note 4 today, and although the resolution is much higher, the 6 plus trounces it in color accuracy. That surprised me, and reminded me that ppi isn't everything.
