Not sure which new iPhone to pick? These printable cut-outs might help you decide

Us techies are typically very particular about the things we want out of our smartphones. But that isn't the case with everybody, so it's fair to expect that the average Joe looking to get a new iPhone might struggle choosing between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

We know, we know -- the difference is quite massive. After all, we're talking about a sizable gap between 4.7- and 5.5-inches. But when you're faced with two so similar devices, making a final pick can be a bit frustrating -- you don't want to pick the wrong one and then come to regret it, after all. Which is why it's definitely best that you go ahead and visit your closest Apple/carrier store and feel both devices for yourself when they become available. If you don't want to wait until the first batch of new iPhones reaches those, however, perhaps the printable cutouts available below will be of help and give you a sense of the size of the two models. Better yet, you can use those in concert with our size comparison tool and contrast and compare how the two new iPhone models compare with just about every phone you can think of. Find the instructions at the below link.

Happy printing!

I'm really disappointed with both the iPhones. Where's the excitement gone Apple? I remember seeing the iPhone 4 announcement, and people there and I myself was bamboozled and super excited seeing at that time revolutionary "Retina" display and that sexy glass and stainless steal design. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are nothing more than just Apple playing catch up to Android and WPs on size. Both of these, especially the 6, should have been released last year. The rounded corners actually make the new iPhones look kinda ugly, even though they're made of premium materials. Sure, many people will line up and buy the crap outta these two phones, but Apple has definitely lost its edge and its unique approach to smartphones, one where they prioritized one handed usage and user experience, than large screens and playing catch up on specs and every other feature (NFC). The Watch is really cool though, but I don't see it being any better than a G Watch or Moto 360. In short, last night's event was underwhelming. The iPhone 4 remains for me the last iPhone that brought excitement, even to non Apple fans.

Can't say that I fully agree this time around. I had some good emotions flaring up during the keynote. From shock to awe, they had me going until it was over then I started thinking about all the things they didn't say, then my fave tech site going absolutely bananas. It just started killing it. Sounds silly, but I suppose when someone is trying to shove a product in my face, my defense mechanism kicks in. Also this leaves the mind to focus on the missing details and cover ups with far fetched statements. 2K doesn't matter. Apple does 720p, now 1080p isn't a big deal. Htc M8's camera isn't great because of the mega pixels. Iphone gets 8mp, but it's ok because MP isn't a big deal. The G3's 3000mah battery isn't enough, but the iphone 6's unknown battery is superior because of the OS. Which has proven as BS via the 5S. What a rant! Sorry man. I'm torn between the Nexus 6, Moto X, G3, WP flagship or the iPhone 6

I'm not sure how increasing screen size is playing catch up. With Apple outsourcing it's manufacturing, at any given time that they want to change the screen size, all they have to do is place an order and come up with a new design. You're mistaking Apple's deliberate decisions to employ or not employ certain features as an inability too.

They bashed Samsung and other Android OEMs for huge screens and uncomfortable one handed operation for years, yet now they realize that big screens are the way forward and have hence released bigger screened iPhones. That clearly shows Apple playing catch up.

@quakan: Thus, Samsung is not copying Apple. They were just adjusting based on consumer demands, their number one priority -- as what they mention during Samsung GALAXY S4 UNPACKED Event.

Man, that's the best comment I've heard in a long time. I agree with this 100%.

quakan, great point, Steve wasn't wrong with 3.5-4" (but long) being the biggest screen to be used easily with one hand, it's still true. But market demanded bigger screens - apps are more sophisticated, and games show thousand times more detail - I got the 5s and I'll keep it for a while, just not happy with the protruding camera on iP6 - I play all my games or use graphic editing apps on my ipad (even NOTE 4 would be too small for that). Video editing is quite easy surpisingly and intuitive on iPhone 5s 4" screen (I use iMovie and a couple other 3rd party for editing clips and upload to iMovie for full presentation stiching). But Apple chooses features carefully before introducing to public, like NFC this time - they established iBeacon first for product info, and now coupled with getting all credit cards, merchants, and stores on board, and introduce hardware to support payments for those merchants - Apple Pay is looking like a proper step into a mobile payment option. Whats the point for NFC payments that Android introduced "years ago" when you still need to carry your cards for merchants that dont support it... Hopefully with Android already ready, and iOS push - I never have to ask them to hold on to that pizza cuz I forgot my wallet at home... lol..

I'm not a big fan of the protruding camera either. Hopefully, it won't be too bothersome because I've always disliked phones that didn't lay flat. I think with Apple incorporating NFC, it will increase the availability and reliability of using that technology in stores, at least here in the US. I've been in stores and have witnessed first hand how some stores' NFC readers don't always work properly so the customer was forced to still use their card. Hopefully, with widespread use, this will rid you of your pizza woes lol. I've said before in the past that Apple doesn't have to compete as hard as Android vendors for the simple fact that there is only one iOS vendor. In the crowded world of Android, in order to differentiate products, manufacturers are essentially forced into boasting specs and features as a way to stand out from the rest. Sometimes the features are great and become an industry standard and other times the features are half-baked or not truly ready for primetime. Apple's high customer retention allows for them to let products, services, and features to have more maturity time. This doesn't mean that they never release immature features, but it does give them an advantage in knowing that their customer base will often give them another chance to do it right.

You android losers can bash apple all you want but your opinion doesn't matter and it's still going to sell like crazy. I can't wait for September 19th. Have fun sitting on your computer fandroids trying to start pointless arguments with people who are happy with their iPhones.

have fun sitting in line for all we care and enjoy for Apple emptying your wallet on the worlds most EXPENSIVE phone

Sure, based on specs it may be more expensive than Android equivalent - fully noted, but I have been making more money every time I bought a new iPhone - confused? every 2 years we sell our old iPhones for upwards of $450 each, and grab a new one for $200 and keep the rest... I'm sure you'll probably be able to do that with Android phones too now, but my friends have been doing this since iPhone 3. (I kept my 3GS til 2013 cuz it worked good and got all the updates up until iOS 7 and sold it for $100 to Bestbuy after 4.5 years of use and got an iPhone 5S - I kid you not). Basically I can sell my 5s now, after a year of use (still on contract) and pay off the money to release me from contract, and have enough for a 16GB iPhone 6, but I usually prefer the "s" models... and I rely on doing tasks while driving one handed using Siri - eyes on the road!....

Tip: glue the cut-outs onto cardboard to get a better feel as to how each will feel in your hands and pockets.

The only thing that we should think about is. Does it blend.
