The iPhone 6 Plus comes in full HD with a more conventional 1920 x 1080 pixels, on its 5.5-inch display. The iPhone 6 Plus is not only huge, it’s going to be a sharper display.

The new A8 chip is claimed to offer 50 per cent faster graphics, 25 per cent faster processing power, as well as being 50 per cent more battery life. It also includes an image signal processor to support the new camera. There is not much difference in performance in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.
