Should I Get an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus? A Few Tiebreakers to Help You Make Your Decision

Posted In iPhone, Smartphone reviews - By Techtiplib on Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 With No Comments »

Usually when Apple releases a new phone or device, there is no debate or comparison—those with the latest gadgets wait in line and place orders for the newest device. However, with Apple’s latest release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, some Apple die-hards are having a hard time deciding between the two. While you can’t go wrong with either phone, they each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Read the following comparisons to help you decide when choosing between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

iPhone 6 or 6 Plus

Screen Size

It is going to take some time to get used to the large increase in size for both of the new phones for old iPhone users. While the 8 inches difference in screen size may not seem like much, it is a drastic difference when comparing the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus next to each other. The iPhone 6 Plus is going to work perfectly for people that spend most of their time watching videos and playing games on their phone. The iPhone 6 should be the choice for anyone with smaller hands, or if you are not ready to make a huge leap in phone size yet.

Battery Life

One of the biggest hassles of powerful smartphones is having to monitor your usage so you do not run out of battery life at the wrong time. The difference between the battery life of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 is extremely drastic. The battery life on the iPhone 6 is reportedly poor. Semi-regular use of the phone will have you searching for a charger at some point in the evening. This is a major inconvenience, especially if you rely on your phone for work and need full battery power all day. While the battery life on the iPhone 6 is poor, the iPhone 6 Plus has exceptional battery life. The battery found in the iPhone 6 Plus has nearly twice the capacity of the other phone. The battery on the iPhone 6 Plus can easily last two days with regular use. Read more iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support rapid charging with CHOETECH Multi USB Charger.


While most people purchasing a new iPhone are usually not concerned with the price, it can still be a deciding factor for a lot of people. The iPhone 6 Plus is going to cost an additional $100 with or without a contract. While that comes with some slightly enhanced features, the large price difference may not be worth it for some people. 

Nobody wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone only to know there was a better option for them. Now that you know the differences in the screen size, battery life and price of the new iPhones, you should have no problem making the correct choice.
