How big is too big when it comes to smartphones?
Until very recently, Apple would have said anything above 4 inches. Now, though, we have the 4.7in iPhone 6 and its gargantuan sibling, the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus.
The 6 Plus is like the 6 after a massive injection of smartphone growth hormone. As well as being bigger by far, it also has a higher resolution screen, comes with a bigger battery hidden away inside and even has an improved camera.
So while bigger doesn’t always equal better, there’s every reason to suppose it will do here. Or at least that’s what Apple hopes.
