    If there were no devices on the market, I would go with this. But that is jsut not the case. The mini has a 7.85 inch screen. The Plus has a 5.5 inch screen. The gap between the mini and the plus is bigger than the gap between the 5S and the Plus, so this isn't going to give a very good indication at all.

    Pull out a U.S. paper (money) bill. The 6+ is about 2mm taller than that bill. It is wider though.

    Download this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2lv2phny3oiytrf/iPhone6RelSizesWiPadMini.pdf?dl=0, print it, cut out the 6+.

    Another option: pull out two U.S. $1 bills. Fold each over right underneath George Washington's chin. Now put them (George's face up) head-to-head or (George's) chin to chin. To-da: you now have the width of the iPhone 6+ and almost the height (the 6+ is about 2mm taller than the bills).

    Either the Note 3 or do what my buddy did, draw one on paper or napkin and cut it out. It actually convinced him that he didn't want the 5.5.

    You're right. I just compared my 5S to the cutout and it was slightly taller. But I think the 6 and 6+ cutout can still serve as a guide.

    You also have to remember, if you are putting a case on the Plus, it will make it quite a bit larger.

    If the iPhone plus had a higher res screen comparable to the LG and Note, I'd say that. But it doesn't. Which is disappointing.

    I had the same issue. You can get the sizes of Apples website. I just added them to this template and made a cardboard cut out. Wrapped it in tape and I had a pretty accurate template. 6+ for me!
