Here's how big the iPhone 6 may be compared to most other flagships

Here's how big the iPhone 6 may be compared to most other flagships
Even those who are only remotely interested in the phone industry must have been reached by the hype that's started to build around the upcoming Apple iPhone 6. Apple's next-gen smartphone is expected to arrive in September, but leaks and rumors about it have been circulating the internet for quite a while now. Needless to say, none of the information available right now is to be considered "final" or "confirmed", so at this point, it's up to everyone to decide whether or not they are willing to believe the unofficial loads of data that have been floating around for the last few months.

Courtesy of said rumor mill endeavors, we now have our hands on some pretty convincing concept images of the iPhone 6 with 4.7" screen. In this particular size comparison post, we're using concept pictures made by designers Tomas Moyano and Nicolàs Aichino - these concepts are not necessarily indicative of what the final product will look like, but they are based on the widely-available iPhone 6 dummies that have already been used by various individuals to produce tons of beauty shots and alleged "leak shots". Meanwhile, we're using the rumored dimensions of the iPhone 6, which are currently claimed to be 5.43 x 2.64 x 0.28 inches (138 x 67 x 7 mm). Again, that doesn't mean this is exactly how big the real deal is going to be, but if we assume that these dimensions are close to what Apple's going to announce next month, well, we can at least get an idea of how the iPhone 6 is going to compare against some of the other flagships available right now, including the Xperia Z2, G3, Galaxy S5, and the One (M8).

Check this preliminary size comparison below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

It won't matter how big the screen is when you can't enjoy it with at least a 1080p resolution, companies are moving forward 2K displays with their screens and apple is still not even 720p.

all the tv companies are idiot that using 4k res. for above 50 inch tvs.

2 k screen unnecessary at mobile. it consumes more power

1080p is the ideal size i think.

Depends on the device if it uses more power.
Galaxy S5 LTE-A has a 2560x1440 screen.
Uses about the same amount of power as Galaxy S5 1080p screen.
According to Anandtech.

Good point
But I think its because the S5 LTE-A has the newer 805 which is more efficient and faster
A S5 LTE-A with the 805 and a 1080p screen would probably be more efficient than one with a 1440p screen

Could also be true.
Anyone got battery life tests between G3 regular and G3 Snapdragon 805?

just watch this, its about performance and battery of G3, G3 LTE-A and S5 LTE-A all in one vid: youtu.be/YCpcEtokiJ0

(TL:DW galaxy s5 prime is QHD display done right, if it doesnt hinder anything, then whey not have it?)

Interesting video but her G3 scores are wayy too low.. I'm scoring around 36k @ antutu, just like S5 and the other S801 flagships

The Snapdragon 805 is not much more efficient than the 801. The 2K Samsung display's efficiency is what matters. It really has nothing to do with the Snapdragon.

Not 2K.... 2,5 K or Quad HD

posted on 22 Aug 2014, 03:52

19. vincelongman (Posts: 1330; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)


True
FHD (1920x1080) is closer to 2K (2048x1080) than QHD (2560x1440)

Also 4K/2K is called 4K/2K because its about 4000/2000 horizontal pixels
3840/1920 is rounded up
2560 would round up to 3K, but many people are calling 3200x1800 3K, so maybe rounding down to 2.5K makes more sense

IMO we should just keep referring to it as QHD or 1440p

1080p is overkill and a battery hog on a 5" device. 1080p, 2k, 4k, is just meaningless marketing speak that has no bearing on a small screen.

Even Samsung's 8" tablets are shipping with 800p resolution (although it is noticeable at 8")

speak for yourself. I can see a huge difference between my 1280 Note 2 and my daughter's S5 at 1920. 1080p is NOT overkill.

I do however think 2560 is over kill for 5.5" phones. On my G3, I think I'd be just as happy if it was 1080. The resolution it has actually makes some fonts and websites hard to read. Not worth giving up battery life, to me anyway.

My Son's 8.4 Galaxy Pro tablet is AMAZING with it's 2560 resolution. I would never ever purchase a tablet of any size with 800p resolution.

With a new puny smaller battery. and with a over large ipod touch with EXTREME PRICE tag they still can't out beat any companies when it comes to screen resolution or specs. they are only good at selling million of units.

The iPhones's the screen-bezel ratio is 65.8%, that's worse than 4.7" phones from 2012 (eg. optimus G, nexus 4, moto X).

Nope the moto x is the most compact phone from screen size : body ratio. I don't have it but I've been told it's a little bigger the the iPhone 5s which has a 4.7 vs 4 inch screen.

11. galanoth (Posts: 325; Member since: 26 Nov 2011)


Also depends on what peoples' definition of compact is.
Do people take into account phone width?
If so, I think the Galaxy Alpha is the most compact 4.7 inch phone by total volume. (H x L x W)
Moto X (129.3 x 65.3 x 10.4 mm)
Galaxy Alpha (132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm)

But I'm still disappoint there's no ZL3 or Z3 M (5" screen in a body similar to the Alpha)

24. Venkatramanan (Posts: 143; Member since: 15 Aug 2014)


As of today. But if rumors are true about Z3C size, that will be the best compact phone.

posted on 22 Aug 2014, 05:08

26. Amir1 (Posts: 267; Member since: 20 Aug 2013)


This is without a doubt. Z3c should outdo Z1c as best compact flag ever made. no one can argue on that.

Make that alpha around 10mm thick and throw in a 3500mah battery... It will kill every phone in the competition.

Funny how time changes. Just yesterday sammy used to be the king of ugly flagships. Now see, the alpha is the best looking device amongst the list. Lol, if someone ever told me apple was going to release a less attractive device compared to sammy I would have given the person a dirty slap. Time indeed changes.

The Z2 looks like a brick compare to other phones here and it sure weighs like one, too. The S5's just ugly looking but the new Alpha looks pure gorgeous!! My M8 looks like it got beaten with the ugly stick next to it. Too bad it doesn't really have killer specs like other true andriod flagships. Although I respect the G3 and it has amazing small form factor with a oversized display, I don't really like the quality of their screen. The G3's glossy plastic is another turnoff for me. The iPhone...where do I begin? Sub full HD resolution, no SD card slot, iTunes, small battery & no true multitasking should be more than enough for me to stay away. If those leaks are true then I think the iPhone 6 looks uglier than their previous gen, the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S looks beautiful but it's just too small for my taste and also rocks other cons I wrote above. I guess now I'm definitely going with the Note 4 if it shares the same design language as the new Alpha. Crazy beautiful QHD AMOLED screen with killer specs & functions and now with a beautiful design language....can't go wrong with it.

Samsung Alpha just has a metal band around it but the rest is made of plastic and Samsung is positioning it as a high end metal smartphone that is a direct competitor to iPhone 6 which is all metal! Now that great marketing in my book!
