Written by Chloe Harwood

Apple’s iPhone 6 is already their top selling iPhone ever, and the iPhone 6 Plus might not be too far behind. One of the biggest changes the company made to the iPhone 6, was the increased screen size, which is something their customers have wanted for a while. With the iPhone 6 plus, Apple further expanded the screen size, and now it comes with a 5.5 inch display screen.

Not only is the screen bigger, it is a 1080p High Definition screen, which gives you crystal clear video playback. The phablet is definitely bigger, but it can still easily fit in the palm of your hand, because it isn’t as obtrusive as some of the other phablets out there. The iPhone 6 plus comes in three different models, the 16 GB model, the 64 GB model, and the 124 GB model, and they are priced accordingly.

When it comes to power, the iPhone 6 Plus has the same 1.4GHz A8 chip that powers the iPhone 6, and is just as fast. The gaming performance is also top notch, despite having more pixels than the iPhone 6. One of the upgrades that fans of the iPhone will appreciate on the iPhone 6 Plus, is the battery life. The battery on the new iPhone is expected to last up to three and a half hours, which is pretty impressive, and a major upgrade from previous iPhones.

The iPhone 6 Plus also has a much improved camera, 8 megapixel iSight camera has received a few upgrades, and is probably the best camera you will find in an iPhone, and most smartphones. The 1080p screen allows you to see the smallest details before you shoot, which allows you to make the necessary changes. It allows users to change exposures very easily, and the built in Focus Pixels, allow you to lock on subjects even in the dark. It also has great optical image optimization and digital stabilization that allows you to take pictures without worrying about blurs.

In addition to the camera, you can record your videos in standard and full HD, with time lapse and slow motion modes, which allow you to make unique videos. The call quality on the iPhone 6 Plus was also a pleasant surprise, because a lot of phablets have bad call qualities because of their size. The only thing that will take some getting used to with the iPhone 6 Plus, is the fact that it isn’t a phone you can multitask with, because of its size, which requires you to use two hands to perform some functions.
