Top 5 iPhone 6 Alternatives [December, 2014]

Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is one of the best smartphones on the market and a device that should be on your radar if you’re looking for a new smartphone this month. There are also some devices that we think you must weigh against the iPhone 6 and here, we take a look at what we think are the top five iPhone 6 alternatives for the month of December.

After years of sticking to smaller 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. Their features, which include improved cameras and processors, have helped them become two of the biggest names in town.

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. It’s a device that we love and recommend.

It’s not the only name in town though and there are some very solid iPhone 6 competitors that we think consumers need to rule out before committing to Apple’s latest iPhone.

If you're looking at the iPhone 6 then you've probably ruled out a lot of the bigger devices on the market. Devices like the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4. You want a powerful device without the massive size. Those devices are going to be the focus here. If you want to go bigger, take a look at the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4.

The first iPhone 6 alternative that we recommend is none other than the iPhone 5s, Apple's flagship from last year. The iPhone 5s may not have all of the bells and whistles that the iPhone 6 has but it comes with some very likeable features including Apple's latest iOS update, iOS 8. It also comes without the massive price tag that comes with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

While the iPhone 5s has taken a step back from the spotlight since the arrival of the iPhone 6, it's still a very solid phone and it allows you to remain in Apple's ecosystem for a fraction of the cost. If you are enamored with the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 5s is the next best thing. Remember, iOS 8 was its first iOS update and iPhones typically get three. Its got some life left in it.
