    Can anyone tell me what exactly is the difference between iPhone 6 plus and the iPhone 6 aside from its look and size?

    These are things you could easily find by comparing the two devices on a site like GSM Arena or Phone Arena, and thousands of videos or articles are available on the subject.

    The iPhone 6 Plus has a better and brighter screen with higher pixel density, a much larger battery and longer battery life, and a few extras in the camera, if I recall correctly.

    The only difference that is actually pretty noticeable is the camera on the phones. The iPhone 6 Plus has a better camera and it has optical photo and video stabilization. But the iPhone 6 only has optical photo stabilization. Another minor difference is that on the iPhone 6 Plus you can go landscape on the home screen while on the iPhone 6 you can’t.

    I didn't know the landscape thing on the iPhone 6! I should probably take a look at that!

    While reading articles on the sites you mention is always a good idea, it's also helpful to come onto forums such as this to find out what people's opinions are.

    Sometimes the 'expert' opinion will differ from everybody else's.

    The cost! :p
    On a more serious note,
    The iPhone 6 has up to 14 hours of talk time on 3G, while the iPhone 6 Plus boasts up to 24 hours, according to information posted on Apple's website.

    So, that's the major difference.

    I'd be very cautious about quoting these types of figures when it comes to talk time, especially the 'official' ones.

    Many people won't see anywhere near the figures that Apple put out there.

    Pin point accuracy is not the point here. What I am saying is that the + model has higher battery back up than the normal one. Period.

    Has anyone here considered that maybe Apple is making these inferior battery versions so they can get you hooked on upgrading to a different model with improvements? Sounds like a great marketing plan. Release a product that has limitations, and in a few months release a corrected version.

    That is ingenious! Never considered this before. This just blew my mind!

    But if your going to quote certain figures then I'd imagine that accuracy is a pretty important part of any post? The "it must be true because Apple says so", argument doesn't work with many people anymore these days.

    I don't think that the camera is different on these devices, although I know for a fact that the 6+ has a bigger battery and a much nicer screen.
    It's not really worth the price difference between the two.

    What is wrong with asking here?

    I don't see a problem either with asking questions like that on here either to be honest. At the end of the day isn't that what a forum is for? To share opinions, discuss topics and ask questions?

    One contains more features than the other, it's just as simple at that.

    And one is also a lot more expensive than the other so if your deciding which one to choose, weighing up the extra features and if it's worth the extra cost would be something to look at.

    Absolutely. That's a very good point and wise. I think what's best for me might not be necessarily best for others. I would be happy not having to pay more for useless features and just have a good enough iPhone 6 for example.

    Less is more. I just don't like the size of the Iphone 6 Plus. Why would someone spend more to buy that?

    Because some people have all the money in the world or maybe they just don't know how to spend their money wisely or maybe they are real iPhone fanatics who always have to buy the best of the best.
