The new iPhone 6 is not only bigger than previous models, but it is much thinner than ever before. With its beautiful, slick design, it is no surprise that over 10 million iPhone 6s were sold in the first weekend of its release.

While earlier models of the iPhone were very bulky, the iPhone 6 loses the previous version’s bulkiness but keeps the original iPhone design.

Many people have started to criticize the iPhone 6 because it supposedly looks exactly like an android now. However, just because Apple decides to make the phone larger than ever before does not mean they are trying to copy the Android design. I will admit, the iPhone 6 Plus does look similar to an Android phone but you can’t accuse Apple of stealing Android’s look; Apple sells more phones than any other company, they don’t need to copy anything from anyone.

Design wise, this phone is brilliant. Software wise, however, Apple dropped the ball. IOS 8 is the same software everyone is used to for Apple devices; they just added a couple useless features. Even though not much was changed with the new IOS 8, it is still superior to Android software because of its simplicity.

The 6 Plus, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Apple was able to create a phone for the average person and a phone for a tech wiz. The 6 Plus is able to offer amazing optical image stabilization as well as a longer battery life (10-12 hours of heavy usage).

Depending on the kind of person you are, the iPhone 6 is most likely a better option. The reason is because the 6 Plus is much bigger than the 6, which is already big enough, and unless you need better camera options and features, there is really no need to spend more money on the Plus.

These two iPhone releases definitely trump all competition and prove that Apple is the main competition for most phone companies.
