Apple’s massive iPhone 6 Plus is one of the best smartphones on the market and a device that should be on your radar if you’re looking for a big screen smartphone this month. There are, however, some devices that we think you must weigh against the iPhone 6 Plus before buying and here, we take a look at what we think are the top five iPhone 6 Plus alternatives for the month of December.
After years of sticking to small display sizes, Apple finally made the jump up this year with its all new 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. And its those features, which include improved cameras and processors, have helped them become two of the biggest names in town.
Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, the larger of the two, features a 5.5-inch Retina HD display to go along with a speedy A8 processor, solid 8MP camera that offers Optical Image Stabilization, 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, massive, high-end smartphone. It’s a device that we love and recommend.
It’s not the only big screened smartphone in town though and there are some very solid iPhone 6 Plus competitors that we think consumers need to rule out before committing to Apple’s latest iPhone.
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 December, 2014.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Samsung's brand new 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 an updated 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 move closer to the end of the year and 2015. Keep that in mind because the Galaxy Note 4 costs just as much as the iPhone 6 Plus, a device that probably won't move much in price. Check out our full Galaxy Note 4 review for more details.
