Which iPhone 6 Is Best For You?
After yesterday's menagerie of announcements, it can be difficult to process all of this new information. Most importantly, what version of the iPhone 6 is going to be the better buy for you? We've compiled an easy comparison of the models to make things a little easier.
You should buy an iPhone 6 if...
- You're looking for a basic phone upgrade and currently own an iPhone 5 or iPhone 5c. If you're still trucking along on an iPhone 4s, you could get away with going up only one generation, unless you want all the bells and whistles.
- You're interested in taking pictures, browsing the internet, and doing some casual gaming. You don't need anything too fancy, just a better version of the phone you've got.
- You like the size of your current phone and aren't very interested in sizing up. The iPhone 6 is smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus, and if you're a current iPhone user you won't notice much difference.
- You're looking to stay on a budget, or are needing to upgrade your current phone on the cheap. Some providers are keen on even offering the phone to you for free if applicable.
- You like the idea of upgrading to something powerful and "coveted" by the general populace, but you just need something streamlined and simple, no frills and no bells and whistles.
You should buy an iPhone 6 Plus if...
- You've been waiting to join the world of "phablets" and need a larger phone or have larger hands.
- You prefer all the extras and bells and whistles of the smartphone industry, and Android just isn't delivering anymore.
- You plan on syncing with the Apple Watch for fitness and other personal improvement goals.
- You plan on replacing your wallet and using Apple Pay for all of your important financial needs.
- You conduct business on your phone, need access to emails and a keyboard that readily fits your fingers
- You've got the extra cash laying around.
- You need a larger screen for all of the different activities you want to perform with your new smartphone.
It's pretty simple when you break it down into different reasons -- basically, you can rationalize it as the iPhone 6 being the "basic" option and the iPhone 6 Plus as the "premium" option. Which one will you be picking up after all?
