Mock-up of Apple's rumored iPhone phablet shows a taller device than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3
posted by Alan F. / Jun 18, 2014, 4:30 AM
We expect Apple to release two variants of the iPhone this year, the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet. Based on the size of these dummy models, the phablet sized version of the iPhone appears to be taller, but not wider than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 even though the latter has a larger display. The LG G3 fits exactly inside the iPhone phablet's frame even though both phones share a 5.5 inch screen.
If the mock-ups are the right size, and do reveal the correct dimensions of each new iPhone model, it would appear that the phablet version of the iPhone is going to be a pretty tall gal. Many have criticized Samsung for not cutting the height of the Galaxy Note, and now it would appear that Apple is about to offer an iPhone with a taller body than Samsung's phablet, but featuring a smaller screen.
If one were to buy into the argument that Apple actually increased sales of the Apple iPhone 5s by offering the plastic cased Apple iPhone 5c with slightly lower specs, one could come to the conclusion that by producing such a large phablet, Apple is making the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 look more pocketable.

Add side-by-side multitasking like LG or Samsung, and I'll seriously consider the 4.7" after years on Android. Nothing against Android, but it might as well still be 4.1 since everything else since then has been under the hood changes. All solid changes that were needed, but it's just become a bit stale for me. Time to try either the new iPhone, see what Android 5.0 is about, or maybe even windows phone for a while! It's a great time to test new devices and ecosystems. Keep an open mind people!

Let's see here: This new iJunk will: (1) Have a SMALLER screen than the NOTE 3 ; (2) But be LARGER in body-size than the NOTE 3 ; (3) Cost probably TWICE as much as the NOTE 3 ; (4) Have INFERIOR specs to ALL of the 2014 ANDROID flagships... CONCLUSION: iJunk for the iCHUMPS...

I personally seriously dislike Apple in general, but the whole inferior specs thing is just silly now. Simply put iOS doesn'y need a 150-core CPU running at 5GHz lol. It's a highly efficient OS with Apple's own tailor-made and optimised skin on top. I love Android and the power we have at our finger tips. But iPhones simply don't need that power, they run games just as well as the best Android devices out there, and in general barely lag. High end specs are only needed on Android because manufacturers like Samsung still don't know how to code properly so even with an S801 their skin STILL lags. Embarrassing really, which is why I stick with Sony who understand what optimisation means.

I agree with you, but the the fact that even vanilla android is running on a virtual machine will make it "lag" more than iOS and WP8(.1). The thing is I would rather have the power at my finger tip than fluidity of the OS. Oh, and Sony only got it right after their 4.3 version of android. Somehow the 4.1.2 Sony Timescape skin had some major memory problems. Phones with 1GB RAM kills the music when browsing due to ram constantly running out. And when you switch tasks, the tasks usually reload because they are killed in the background. But I'm glad they sorted it out in the 4.3 version though. HTC Sense is in the same boat as Sony, their UI is getting more lightweight and less buggy overtime. Samsung's touchwiz... it's just a deadweight weighing down the already relatively heavier Android OS.

What dumb, is how you all flock to mock ups, and concepts that aren't even made by apple, and bash apple over some guys computer art.
