Apple iPhone 6 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Apple iPhone 5s: specs comparison

22

One year ago, Apple broke free from the uniformity and unveiled not one, but two smartphones - the iPhone 5s and its cheaper, toned-down variation, the colorful iPhone 5c. That was the first time Apple unveiled a duo of devices, but surely, it wasn't the last one. Today, Apple once again a double crop of devices, but unlike the 5s and 5c, the newest iPhone smartphones are quite different from one another in the most noticeable aspect - their size.

Probably started by Samsung's original Galaxy Note, a certain trend has existed for the past few years, which pushed most of Apple's rivals to manufacture devices that gradually increased in screen estate and overall size. Until now, Apple refused to conform to this tendency, but the latest iPhone generation is Cupertino's first foray into this trend. But how do the newest iPhone crop fare against the iPhone 5s, the latest 4-incher that Apple launched? We were quite eager to put the trio in an improvised showdown and check out how they compare against each other in terms of overall size and pure hardware specs.
