Why are you only including one Geekbench score? There were other reports that were showing the 6 Plus to be faster - anyway, who cares, the difference is negligible.

Lol, within margin of error, about a 1% diff.
Engadget benchmarks show the 6+ about 6-7% faster.

I think they have the same speed, that numbers are almost the same for me

Wow its a whole 20-30 point difference. :rolleyes: REAL big difference.

How many apps did you have running in the background?

At least its 200-300 points faster then the iPhone 5s.

A vid just got posted that showed real world synched/timed opening of apps and the 6s is a split second faster.

Sorry.

Its official.

The 6 Plus should have better CPU performance (higher clocked), but worse GPU performance (more pixels to push).

I think that is not a breaking point, there are a little difference, all the way iPhone 6 plus is better than iPhone 6.

Well not only that but its rendering at Retina 3x then scaling down to 1080p. I don't care about gaming at all, really all I do is Tiny Tower, Angry Birds and Flappy Birds, none of which are that taxing on the GPU. It every day performance which doesn't seem all that different. For a 5.5" display, to me its worth the (small) trade off.

I chose the 6+ because of the higher PPI and resolution, better camera, and improved landscape mode. The 6 feels like nothing more than an overclocked 5s. I feel there is little reason for its existence.

That's a matter of perspective, doesn't matter how good the phone is if it's to big for you to carry around. They are both good phones, pick what works for you. No need to defend your choice.

Regardless, the speed difference is within anyones measure of margin of error.

Well the iPhone 6 does also have a slightly better camera (not as improved as the 6 Plus however), newer processor, and a bigger display. I chose the Plus because I have been wanting a bigger display and an OIS camera, in a phone? Sign me up!
