Everyone keeps talking about those "extra features"
What are they, beside resolution?
Display, camera, battery. That sums it up.
it cooks you breakfast too
Better battery, camera stabilisation and higher ppi display, landscape apps (400 vs 326)
better battery is such bs, the phone will require to use a lil more battery = basically the same crap.
It provides a landscape mode similar to the iPads (home screen can switch to landscape mode). The camera is slightly different apparently, but the only stated difference is that the 6+ will have OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). Also the things others mentioned with the display and battery life.
Apple have always been pretty spot on when demonstrating/showing charts on their battery life. While the display is bigger, it doesn't necessary correlate completely to the amount of battery. They clearly showed that in some aspects, the 6+ will have an extended amount of battery life. The question is though really how significant that difference will be.
All in all, the differences between the phones aren't really that big. I expect the OIS to be a pretty small improvement given that the digital IS they've used before has always been good.
I have a feeling the screens of both models won't disappoint either, but I'll wait for the reviews before adding anything more.
benchmarks does not equal to real world usage
....yeah on "divide everything by 4" day....
It obviously will have a better battery. Yes, the benchmarks they show can be BS but no way it will be equal to the 4.7" iPhone 6. If it were equal they would show equal BS benchmarks.
benchmarks mean nothing to me, everyone i know charges their iphone 5 at least once a day
Well for people who want a larger phone and are more light to moderate users, with the 6 Plus they might not have to.
i noticed my 5s battery drain faster when it's hot out, is that normal. lol
No, but they're much better than listening to someone here saying it would hardly make a difference in an arbitrary way. Anandtech have great ways to measure battery life which is really not that far off from simulating "real world" usage. Even though we all use our phones differently.
I honestly don't feel that with the products I've had so far.
Doesn't the 6 Plus also get different versions of some of the stock apps, to utilize the extra screen space? And landscape mode for the home screen (like the iPad)?
Yes. I just summarized the hardware features.
The sizes are rumored to be ~1800mAh and ~2900mAh. No WAY the larger screen completely eats up that extra 1100mAh. The 6+ will dominate the 6 in battery life. The cost of that battery life is carrying around a larger device.
In terms of real-world usage, optical image stabilization is really the only thing the iPhone 6+ has over the 6. Yes, I really do mean real-world usage because many of us are not wall huggers and are able to get through the day on a single charge just fine.
They are a good starting point, especially when comparing models. Don't look at it as hours of use, look at it as percentage differences, between the two phones.
The 6 Plus is about 20% better, at minimum, at all of the things measured. That should give you a decent example of how it will compare to an iphone five.
If you are charging five times a day, you will only have to charge four.
IMO this is the biggest feature difference, aside from screen size. I am really hoping we see tons of iPad styled apps coming to the 6 Plus. My pie in the sky dream is to see the iPad store open to the 6 plus completely.
Double the ram, 2gb vs 1gb...
Isn't OIS similar to the floating lens technology that helped make the high end Nokia Lumia's king of the camera smartphones?
Would really like to see a breakdown comparing stills and video between the two (6 and 6+). I expect a camera review within the next couple of weeks...
401ppi vs 326ppi is not insignificant either...
Source? I thought rumors have both at 1 gig.
Machismo. And serious coolness.
dont get your hopes up
