iPhone 6 Plus

If you didn’t know, Apple have released a new iPhone – the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Today I am going to look at the larger version, the Plus.

The iPhone 6 is Apple’s answer to the ‘phablet’, the larger phones in between the size of a normal phone and a tablet. The screen is 5.5 inches (Samsung Galaxy S5 is 5.1 inches, Samsung Note 4 is 5.7 inches, Sony Xperia Z2 is 5.2 inches), slightly larger than the iPhone 6 and slightly smaller than the iPad mini.
