BARELY a difference between the 6+ and the Note 3.
That's true, but then the Note 3 is the biggest smartphone out there and every Apple owner was slating the size last year! Plus, and this is the clincher, the Note 3 is ever so slightly smaller than the iPhone 6+ *but* it has a bigger screen.

I can't help but think those backs aren't real? Why the white lines on the space grey? Or is it just the angle?

I miss my Note 3 and the size wasn't an issue so great to see these pictures. Plus will be slimmer and it looks a little thinner side wise. Cant wait for Friday now. Near 3000 battery should go all day and kill all past iPhones including the 6.

There is when you take into account the screen on the iPhone (5.5") is smaller than the screen on the Note (5.7"). It's unfortunate but ultimately manageable.

I held a co-workers Note 3 and I think it'll work out ok for me.

OP - Thanks for sharing the pics!

Saw someone using a Note on the train this morning, and with these comparisons for sure getting the regular 6.

Every Apple owner? Overgeneralize much? ;)

That's not the Space Gray. It's the white and silver. (The photo of the backs I mean)

Like everyone is saying, iPhone 6 Plus seems to be narrower than the Note 3. Actually, the 6 Plus seems to be about the exact size of the Note 2, since the Note 2 was slightly narrower than the Note 3. I personally like this size a lot, and it'll be interesting to see how developers are going to adapt to the 5.5" screen and hopefully integrate iPad-like UI for the 6 Plus.

The curved glass does look sexy indeed!

CAN'T WAIT!! :D

the iPhone 6 is shaping up to be the biggest 4.7" phone on the market.
The Alpha is noticeably smaller. It's thinner, narrower, and it has a removeable battery. But they don't pay attention to details the way that Apple does.

You need to get your monitor or eye sight checked. The lines are grey, not white.


Good to see the 6 isn't much taller than the Alpha.

Also does anyone else think, that the gold actually doesn't look that bad at all in those photos?

That's not space grey it's the silver phone.
There is no silver iPhone in any of those photos. Space Grey and Gold.

Experia, Galaxy Mega, Lumia, LG Flex. The list goes on.
You mean the 6.4" Xperia Z Ultra? Along with the Galaxy Mega, the Lumia 1320 and the HTC One Max etc these all have screens around the 6" or over mark and are bona-fide 'phablets' as opposed to large phones.
