Apple iPhone 6 Plus against the competition: size comparison

Apple today unveiled not one, but two bigger iPhone smartphones - the 4.7" iPhone 6 and the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Cupertino's first foray, at least at first sight, looks like a pretty important first step into devices that directly stands up to the fierce Android competition in terms of size, at least.

The largest up to date, the iPhone 6 Plus, directly stacks up against such Android behemoths, such as the LG G3, the newly-unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge, the Galaxy S5, and the other usual suspects, such as the Sony Xperia Z2/Xperia Z3, the HTC One (M8), and, of course, a multitude of countless other Android smartphones that employ screens way over 5 inches.

But how large exactly is the new iPhone 6 Plus compared to the competition? Well, we bet you are quite eager to check out (we surely are), so we decided to make an improvised size-centric showdown and see which one's the bigger and more dwarfs its rivals. Check the comparison below and feel free to share any of your thoughts you might have.

Wow, it's a good 5mm taller than the larger-screened Note 4, and it's more than a centimeter taller than the LG G3. Way too much top and bottom bezel...

Think eco system rather than a phone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfNeEsTeKvw The Verge says it is not as bad as the Android giant phones. ROFL! The iP6p is even bigger, heavier and smaller display than the Android giants. Where have the iDrones gone to hide?

The decision to keep the ancient giant bezels again on a 5.5 inch iphone is silly beyond belief

They forgot to ask sammy the secret to building big screen phones. Lol

I love me a big phone (Note 3 owner) but this iPhone is taller with a smaller screen and just as wide as the Note 4. Apple should have concentrated on the iPhone 6 with 1080p display.

Lg g3 is a far better deal, esp. with the free battery and dock charger

Yep, that round home button will be the iPhone6's downfall. Just get rid of it. Look at how much realestate it is taking up. The damn thing is bigger than a Note 3!!!
