Best iPhone 6 Plus alternatives: do you Note?
Without futher ado, let's explore the best alternatives to the iPhone 6 Plus we can think of right now...
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Coming out on October 10, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be the latest installment in the series that actually initiated the phablet category. Since the first Note, Samsung has been leading the space with its S Pen-enabled monsters, and the Note 4 is really a worthy successor to that line of successful devices. A 5.7" QHD display, coupled with the next-gen Snapdragon 805 SoC and a best-in-class camera, the Note 4 really has a lot to offer to the individual seeking a very versatile smartphone that can offer a ton of features and great stylus integration.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
Similarly, the Galaxy Note Edge comes with all of the Note 4's goodies, plus an innovative extra feature: a curved Edge screen that can display various types of information, such as notifications, news, weather, and more. The Note Edge also has the signature S Pen stylus, and is expected to arrive on the market sometime in October.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Samsung's last-year Note, the Note 3, is still a great device that packs quite a lot of punch. It comes with the Snapdragon 800 chipset, plus the screen is still very large, at 5.7". Overall, it's a great all-around performer, which can now also be found at a slightly more affordable price, having been around for quite a while.
LG's current flagship smartphone has the huge display size of 5.5 inches, which makes it perfectly competitive with the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. However, LG's handset differentiates with a thin-bezel design that makes its G3 look significantly smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus. Well, it's also thicker, but you know, you can't have it all. Needless to say, the G3 is a very versatile piece of machinery that comes with tons of functionality right out of the box. A great Android alternative to the iPhone 6 Plus.
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
And here comes the Ascend Mate 7 - a massive, 6" beast with top-notch specs and a touch fingerprint scanner of its own. Of course, it runs Android 4.4, but Huawei throws in its EMUI 3 interface, which looks suspiciously similar to a cross between MIUI and iOS, with a touch of Android L. Well, all joking aside, the Ascend Mate 7 shapes up as a pretty solid offering for phablet lovers. Just wait until it comes out... which should happen until the end of the year.
Nokia Lumia 1520
Well, let's we put a Windows Phone phablet in the list, shall we? The Lumia 1520 and its 6" display seem up to the task. The hardware may be a bit last-year, but Windows Phone is very well optimized, so we have no doubts that the Lumia 1520 and its capable camera will do a great job as an iPhone 6 Plus alternative. The only thing one should consider before going the Windows Phone's way is the app gap.
