With Christmas coming right around the corner, one of the hot new items of the year is the new iPhone 6
. Of course, one of the best gifts for someone who just go the new iPhone can be one of the many lines of iPhone 6 cases
. However, with a plus sized model out, a lot of people are just not sure how the two stack against each other and which one will work best for them.
Of course, there will be a lot of similarities between the two, as they did come out pretty much at the same time. Both of the phones carry the same storage sizes and options, which means you have to choose between the 16, 64, or 128 gb storage options with no optional expandable memory. Both phones also run the same iOS 8 operating software, and both use the same processors. This may not mean a lot to a non-technical person, but what it does mean is that with either phone you get the same great operating systems you have come to expect from an iPhone.
The big difference between the two iPhones is the size. Of course, that means if your friend or loved one just upgraded to the iPhone 6 plus, that his or her old case will not work anymore. You might be able to look through and find some personalized iPhone 6 cases
as a unique gift. But if you are looking to upgrade for yourself, the bigger size does have some potential drawbacks. Since the iPhone 6 plus is two centimeters taller and one centimeter wider it might be a little more difficult to hold with one hand. The size differences do not sound like much, but with the already larger iPhone 6, it might just be a deal breaker. Ergonomics are important with phones, so this might be something to take a look at.
The New iPhone 6 - Shines in More Than One Way
However, the iPhone 6 plus really shines in the battery and screen departments. The extra size gives the iPhone 6 a much larger battery
, which can give you a few extra hours of video and calling. The iPhone 6 plus also gives you a full HD experience, giving you about 25 percent more pixels per inch than the standard iPhone 6. If these differences are enough for you to make the switch, it might also be time to look for some new iPhone 6 plus cases
while you are at it.
