    I was just thinking...

    Since the 6 is driving far less pixels than the 6+, will it be faster/more responsive than the 6+? Especially as apps get more and more demanding.

    The 6+ supposedly renders over-resolution, and then scales back down to fit the display. This seems like a waste.

    Or does Apple throttle down the A8 to save battery on the 6?

    It's seems that way.

    The A8 alone means its going to be faster then the iPhone 5.

    It'll be interesting to see how the A8 chip handles the resolution downscaling on the 6 Plus.

    I'm pleased I went with the 6!

    I'm a little surprised they didn't. I mean, if any company was going to use a non-standard resolution it would be Apple but I suppose a 2208 x 1242 display at 401+ PPI would be considerable more expensive than a 1920 x 1080...
