Compare the size of the Apple iPhone 6 with the Apple iPhone 5

Compare the size of the Apple iPhone 6 with the Apple iPhone 5
The Apple iPhone 6 is rumored to carry a 4.7 inch screen. That is up from the 4 inch screen that debuted with the Apple iPhone 5. Prior to that, Apple's iconic smartphone had a 3.5 inch screen, which Steve Jobs felt was the perfect size for one handed use. When even mini versions of Android flagships started hitting 5 inches, iPhone users were getting restless about a larger screen for their pride and joy. 

To show you the difference between the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 5, images show the two phones in various poses, showing off the larger size of the new model. The photos also let us see how much thinner the iPhone 6 will be. Other changes include the rounded corners, and the now infamous protruding camera on the Apple iPhone 6.

With the upcoming 4.7 inch version of the iPhone, the power button is moved from the top of the phone to the side, making it easier for those with smaller hands to reach. The round volume rockers have become elongated buttons, and the bottom of the phone now shows one single row of speakers, compared to the previous two double rows. This is interesting because a picture allegedly revealing the Apple iPad Air 2, shows Apple doing something similar to the tablet's two double rows of speakers on the bottom of the slate. Instead of twin double rows of speaker holes, the iPad Air 2 has twin single rows. This might confirm earlier speculation that the iPhone 6 would take its design cues from the iPad Air 2, and might even be called the Apple iPhone Air.

Check out the different look between the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 5 by clicking on the slideshow below. And we'd be remiss if we didn't suggest opening the kitchen cabinet, and pulling out some salt to take these pictures with.


Thanks for the tip!

That protruding camera ruins the clean look of the phone IMO. And I really don't get why Apple and its iHerd is so obsessed with extreme thinness..

Because what else are they going to say when they present the phone? Apparently, no fragmentation and no. of app downloads are not enough for iFans.

I'm not buying the protruding camera, I'm pretty sure Apple has found a way to make it flush with the phone, just like that China Telecom picture is showing.

I don't think so. Apple usually being obsessed with seamless design, the camera on those pictures just seems too gross to be the real deal. I think they'll come up with something flush eventually.

"Apple usually being obsessed with seamless design"

At least until they run out of innovation to. Then they just bend their Apple reality to make protruding cameras "beautiful".

Remember the new iPad? It was fatter, heavier and all around crappier than the iPad 2, yet people still went totally crazy about it.

I agree. This race to making the thinnest phone ever is creating a lot of unnecessary compromises. Just look at the Motorola Droid Razr or even as far back as the Droid X and it's protruding camera housing. They should've at least placed in a larger battery (instead of making me buy the extended battery that adds only 1mm more to the thickness).

Hopefully this mockup isn't real.

Looks so HTC One M7...and even the M7 didn't have a protruding camera. Protruding cameras are so 2012 (S3, One X, etc.), which is where this phone belongs.

Don't forget that all of the Galaxy series phones have protruding cameras, although they are much better looking than Apple's implementation...

That would make 416 and 475 each.

They are not complaining but trolling.
BTW, there was an article here about iPhone's resolutions to be much less. Androtakus *want to* believe that.

Yup, a resolution that's not very common, not even in the desktop/ laptop realm of things. The MacBook Air is 1300x900 with 768 being the step below. Everything else is 1080p and up.

I think apple have lost their premium feel this time, iphone 6 looks awkward and cheap. I still don't believe this will be the iphone 6, but it won't matter so far there is an apple logo on the back. If samsung should come up with something like this I'm sure izombies will piss over it.

The lens will NOT bother me. We all know we case up our iphones and dont tell me otherwise, I've seen it everywhere i go. NOT A deal breaker, if by any chance it has a protruding lens.

Come around to NYC and you can see plenty of people going caseless for their iPhones, many of which are the 5/ 5s which is thinner than the 4/ 4s.

There are skins and the like available for the iPhone which means you don't have to make it bulky. Also, what is the point of an elegant design if it has to be covered up? I don't add a cover to my phones (Droid Razr M, Moto X, HTC Rezound, HTC one M8 and M7 (bought for family member) and they all do fine. I've seen plenty of naked HTC Ones and Samsung GS5s running around as well. A screen protector or thin film skin will suffice.

I'd like to add that if this new iPhone's camera housing is indeed sticking out then there's a good chance it'll start looking like the one on my old HTC Droid Incredible: all scratched up (though thankfully not the lens).

Also even in a case for the most part, my iPod Nanos (5th, 6th and 7th gens) have gotten scratches on their edges, especially the camera on the 5th gen.
