The Overall Experience:

The iPhone 6 plus is Apple's first entry into the phablet market and is essentially exactly the same as the iPhone 6, just larger - the only differences being a higher screen pixel density, a larger battery and optical image stablization on the camera.

The question of whether you would prefer the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus comes down to whether you prefer a bigger screen (0.8 inch larger than the iPhone 6) and perhaps to a lesser extent, a moderately longer battery life.

Is it better than other leading phablet devices on the market? From a specs point, though it's certainly not at the top, especially from the point of view of camera capabilities or the screen, it's in the ballpark. There's no arguing it's a beautifully designed device, constructed from quality materials and whether you would prefer the iPhone 6 to other phablets running Android or Windows rests on which operating system / manufacturer experience you prefer.

The iPhone 6 Plus comes in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB variants.

How To Buy
 
 

Things to Consider

Though the iPhone 6 Plus is a high-end smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone.  With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the iPhone 6 Plus:

  • The aluminium body of the phone is prone to denting and scratching if dropped, if put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector
  • The back of the phone is non-removable which means that you can’t expand the storage, can’t replace the battery and repairs are more difficult and expensive than on most other phones, especially without specialist tools
  • As with other iPhones, it requires a proprietary USB connector instead of a standard micro USB
  • The iPhone 6 Plus uses a nano-SIM
