Plus-sized: Apple iPhone 6s Plus size comparison vs Note5, Z5 and others
Apple today announced two iPhones - the 4.7" iPhone 6s and the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. The company's first try at a phablet fame proved remarkably successful, despite its higher price and middling screen-to-body ratio. It was pretty imperative that the team from Cupertino finally had something to answer the ever-growing average screen size of the Android competition, and it delivered with 6 Plus, for those of its fans who were longing for a big-screen iPhone since the gizmo's inception.

Has anything changed in overall size or screen-to-body ratio with the new iPhone 6s Plus, when compared to its predecessor, and the larger Android crowd? We are pitting the 6s Plus here against modern Android behemoths, such as the Note5, Xperia Z5 Premium, LG G4, Mate S, and other biggies for your viewing pleasure. As you can see, since the dimensions have stayed largely the same (no wonder, as the 6s Plus arrives in a chassis very similar to the 6 Plus), Apple's second phablet edition still suffers when it comes to screen-to-body ratio. 

The iPhone 6s Plus is larger than the Note5, which actually has a 5.7" display, and all the 5.5-inchers are smaller than the 6s Plus, too. For now, Apple is tied with its iconic circular home key, so we doubt it can do much about the bezel there, unless it is willing to redesign its signature home key completely. Check the comparison below and share any thoughts you might have on this bezel-heavy matter.
