Apple finally bowed to the pressure of having a large screen on the iPhone, as they came out with the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch versions of the iPhone.
The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, as they would be called, represent a huge step up from the American company, which has been facing severe competition from the likes of Samsung and Sony with their high end smartphones. The increased display has been rumored for some time and there have even been working models of the device just a few weeks before the launch.
It should not come as a major surprise that the iPhone is now available with a 5.5 inch display that is capable of going straight to the competition with the Galaxy Note 4, but can the iPhone 6 Plus survive the fight? A major standout of the recently announced Galaxy Note 4 is the QHD display, which provides more than 500 pixels per inch on the Samsung device. Only the LG G3 comes anywhere close to this pixel density. The iPhone 4 was one of the first devices to sport a high resolution display (more than 320 PPI) with Apple famously calling it as the retina display technology.
However, the retina display technology has become one of the weak points of the iPhone in recent years, with many competitors offering full HD displays that provide more than 420 PPI. Samsung has taken the benchmark to a new level with the Galaxy Note 4. Many were expecting the iPhone 6 Plus to be its finest competitor; but it may not be the case after all since the device offers only 400 PPI due to its full HD resolution. Apple may call this is the retina HD display, but it no longer cuts the mustard as far as smartphone displays are concerned.
