    I understand both screens have the same PPI, is there any noticeable difference between the two?

    I have a 6 Plus and I'm considering an exchange (due to multiple yellow screens) so I thought I'd ask anyone if they noticed the 6 screen to be better than the 5S.

    When comparing the 6 Plus to the 5S I can definitely see the difference, just thought I'd ask someone who has handled both.

    Quite a noticeable difference, actually. Bolder, brighter, and as many have mentioned elsewhere, the app icons seem to be almost on top of the screen. You have to see the two side-by-side to appreciate it fully.

    As far as clarity they're the same, however the 6's colors are more vibrant (at least I think so). Other than that, they're pretty much the same screen.

    The 6 looks much better than the 5s despite it having the same ppi. I believe the 6 has a much much higher contrast ratio than the 5s - even the 6 plus.
