Which iPhone is for you?

by on January 24, 2015


Hats off to the team at Mashable for their great article, here.

It inspired us to create our own.

Mashable created a great graphic with some practical reasons for which iPhone you should choose; the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus.



Physical attributes aside, what other things are important to consider?

Well – battery life is a key one. Although the iPhone 6 has a much bigger battery than the 5S, the likelihood is (and the reality of the phones prior to the 6’s release) that after time, through regular usage, the battery will start to wear.

So, if you love to take a lot of photos – record videos at gigs – play lots of games – or use lots of apps – then the 6 Plus is probably more up your street. The battery difference between the 6 & the 6 Plus is quite notable;

iPhone 6

Charging via USB to computer system or power adapter
Talk time: Up to 14 hours on 3G
Standby time: Up to 10 days (250 hours)

iPhone 6 Plus
Talk time: Up to 24 hours on 3G
Standby time: Up to 16 days (384 hours)
Internet use: Up to 12 hours on 3G, up to 12 hours on LTE, up to 12 hours on Wi‑Fi

Mashable also mentioned purse/pocket size. Whilst a big pocket will comfortably fit an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, we don’t always have the luxury of big pockets. If you get the iPhone 6 Plus, we’d recommend that you either expect that you may have to carry it in your hand from time-to-time, or that you invest in a good case so that you can guarantee it’s safety in transit; bags, coats, etc.
