iPhone 6 and 6 Plus review: bigger and better, but with stiffer competition

The iPhone 6 Plus is difficult to use one-handed, not to mention more uncomfortable than similar-sized phones. In exchange, though, you get more of an iPad-like user experience on a much smaller device. It also has better battery life than the smaller iPhone 6, as well as a better camera. Keep that in mind as you're deciding between the two devices.

Pros
  • Large, beautiful display
  • Great camera with optical image stabilization
  • Long battery life
  • Fast performance
Cons
  • One-handed use is frustrating and uncomfortable
  • NFC can only be used for mobile payments
