“The iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest phone Apple has ever made,” Sandra Vogel writes for ZDNet.
“There’s plenty of processing power behind the iPhone 6 Plus, which, like the smaller iPhone 6, uses the new 20nm dual-core Apple A8 SoC running at 1.4GHz. The 64-bit main processor is accompanied by a motion coprocessor, in this case the new M8, that offloads processing relating to sensor data (accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and barometer) for improved power efficiency,” Vogel writes. “The 5.5-inch screen has a full-HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels, giving a pixel density of 401ppi. Apple calls this ‘Retina HD’. You can find higher resolutions — the 5.5-inch LG G3, for example, delivers 2,560 by 1,440 pixels for a class-leading pixel density of 534ppi. Still, the IPS screen on the iPhone 6 Plus is superbly sharp and bright, with great viewing angles.”
“The iPhone 6 Plus delivers better battery life and audio quality than the smaller iPhone 6, along with superb design and solid build quality,” Vogel writes. “If money were no object, we’d choose the 5.5-inch model over its 4.7-inch sibling.”
