With the latest Apple iPhones arriving in India in less than 2 weeks, many buyers may be wondering which iPhone 6 is right for them. This is the first time that Apple has released two separate iPhone models with similar specifications. At least with the iPhone 5S and 5C, one was clearly the high-end model and the other was the low-end device.
With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, there are practically no internal differences except for the size of the battery and the camera. So here are some things to keep in mind when deciding which iPhone 6 to spend your money on.
The price difference
Apple has announced that it will launch the 16GB iPhone 6 variant in India priced at Rs. 53,500, while the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus will start at Rs. 62,500. That is a price difference of Rs 9,000. Opting for a smaller device would mean spending the money you save on accessories like Bluetooth headphones or iPhone 6 cases.
The difference in size
The two new iPhone 6 models are incredibly thin, around the 7mm mark. The iPhone 6 Plus is a bit thicker, but not thick enough for anyone to notice. It is the other dimensions that are tremendously different. The iPhone 6 Plus is not only the largest iPhone of all time, but with a 5.5 “screen it is one of the largest smartphones of the period. Bordering on the size of a phablet, the 6 Plus takes two hands to use it. And Apple even gave it a handheld mode that slides the top of the screen down so you can reach it.
Although many of the stories that the iPhone 6 Plus has bent are media hype, there are still legitimate stories of users who ended up with damaged iPhones just from having them in their pants pockets. The iPhone 6 Plus is so big and so thin that this is not an incredible scenario. Admittedly, you could buy an iPhone 6 Plus case that would provide you with some extra protection, but you would still be worried that you would ruin a device that costs more than 62,000 rupees every time you sit down.
One of the main selling points of iPhones has always been that they have what is probably the best smartphone camera of all time. If you are one of the people who uses the iPhone camera a lot, you will want the iPhone 6 Plus with its optical stabilization features, which the iPhone 6 lacks. Although both are excellent cameras, stabilization brings the iPhone 6 Plus closer to being the best. only camera you will need. However, there is a trade-off. The 6 Plus’s camera sticks out of the body in an ugly camera bulge that spoils the smooth back and makes it impossible to lay the phone horizontally. The only way to solve this is with an iPhone 6 Plus case that evens out the bump and restores the flat back of the phone.
