In September, Apple released two brand new iPhones in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6, Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone is one of the top smartphones on the market and a device that many consumers will be looking at this month and beyond. With that in mind, we want to tell you about the devices we think representative the top five iPhone 6 competitors and devices that should be on your radar alongside the iPhone 6.
After years of sticking to small 4-inch and 3.5-inch Retina Displays, Apple finally made the jump up this year with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The company’s two brand new iPhones are much bigger than their predecessors though they both offer much more than just big sharp displays. These are two of the best all-around smartphones on the market.
Apple’s iPhone 6, the smaller of the two, features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display to go along with a fantastic A8 processor, solid 8MP camera, gorgeous aluminum design, excellent battery life, tons of storage, iOS 8.1, and more. It’s a device that you should be looking at if you’re in the hunt for a brand new, high-end smartphone.
The iPhone 6 isn’t the only name in town though. There are some very solid iPhone 6 alternatives that we think consumers need to rule out before committing to Apple’s latest iPhone.
We are constantly bombarded with questions about iPhone 6 alternatives to look at. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend as the smartphone market is full of solid big screen choices but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider the top five iPhone 6 competitors available right now.
These devices represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.
With that in mind, here are the five iPhone 6 alternatives for November, 2014.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is getting older but that doesn't mean that it's no longer a top Android smartphone. In fact, the Galaxy S5 is still one of the best Android smartphones, a solid iPhone 6 alternative, and a device that only stands to improve once Android 5.0 Lollipop arrives.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 still offers a very solid hardware experience but it's the software that will improve in the weeks ahead. Android 5.0, Google's brand new update, is slated to hit the Galaxy S5 sometime later this year. It will not only deliver new features but design tweaks as well.
The Lollipop update will breathe new life into this aging flagship but it also helps that the Galaxy S5 is available for cheap through retailers like Amazon. And yes, it's much cheaper than the iPhone 6's $199.99 starting price tag which makes it worthy of your attention. Be sure to check out our review before buying it though.
