In September, Apple released two brand new iPhones in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 Plus, Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone is one of the top big screen 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 Plus competitors and devices that should be on your radar alongside the iPhone 6 Plus.
After years of sticking to small 4-inch and 3.5-inch Retina Displays, Apple finally took a leap up this year with the arrival of 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 Plus is the bigger model and it checks in at 5.5-inches, much bigger than any previous iPhone and much bigger than many of the other devices that litter the landscape. The iPhone 6 Plus features 1080p resolution, an 8MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a premium design, tons of storage space, and more. It’s a device that you should be looking at if you’re in the hunt for a large screen smartphone.
The iPhone 6 Plus isn’t the only name around though. There are some very solid iPhone 6 Plus alternatives that we think consumers need to rule out before committing to Apple’s big screen smartphone.
We are constantly bombarded with questions about iPhone 6 Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus alternatives for November, 2014.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The all new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a massive step up from last year's Galaxy Note 3 as it combines a beautiful display with new S Pen features and a fantastic camera. While it's on the expensive side, it's arguably the best big screen smartphone on the market and a true rival to the iPhone 6 Plus.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 arrived in October to great fanfare and it's as good as advertised. It offers you a massive 5.7-inch Quad HD display, an improved design that combines plastic with metal, a camera with Optical Image Stabilization, and a speedy processor that's capable of providing excellent multitasking and gaming.
We haven't seen any massive Galaxy Note 4 deals emerge just yet but we should start to see the Galaxy Note 4 price drop as we enter November and move closer to Black Friday. Keep that in mind because it costs just as much as the iPhone 6 Plus, a device that probably won't budge any time soon. Check out our full Galaxy Note 4 review.
