Video Compares 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 Model to Samsung Galaxy Note 3

While there have been plenty of videos comparing the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and other smartphones, there haven't been many comparing the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to other devices.

However, YouTube channel TechSmartt (via AppleInsider) has acquired a dummy of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and compared it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, offering a look at Apple's rumored "phablet" against its main competition.

When compared to the 5.7-inch Note 3, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is slightly taller. This correlates with an earlier size comparison that found the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 was the same height or taller than leading Android smartphones that had slightly larger screens.

If believed, these dummy models signal that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could be taller than the Note 3's height of 151.2mm. The extra height is largely due to a carryover of design decisions from previous iPhone models, which include identically sized top and bottom bezels. These bezels contain the FaceTime camera, the Touch ID Home button and numerous sensors.

The bigger news here is that a video comparing one size to another size is seven minutes long, and MacRumors posted it to their front page.

Those bezels need to go on a diet.

Only Apple knows if these rumors (design, size, etc.) are true! Nonetheless, I cannot wait till September!

You guys do realize that every iPhone has leaked every year right ?

Literally every iPhone except the original has leaked . This IS what the new iPhones will look like . They are starting to be mass produced .

Believe it people . This news repeats itself every . Year .

"Taller than the Note 3, but not wider than the Note 3... bigger than the Note 3, but smaller screen than the note 3.. like, it's ridiculously big, SERIOUSLY."

Oh my god, shut up! Don't know what's more pathetic- that I watched half of that video, or that macrumors posted it.

i was pumped for the 5.5 but after seeing how big it actually might be with the bars .. i think 4.7 is better.

I lost count on how many times the presenter iterated that he favors the 4.7" model over the 5.5", with slightly different phrasing.

Too big. What I'd actually like is a 4.3" in a thinner body so it would be similar to the 5. IMHO the 5 is already a bit big (I have a work phone 4 also and in some ways I still like that size).

IMHO, the 5 is small.



Who the heck uses an iPhone without a case?!

I do. I've ditched cases long ago.

I realized why get an iPhone to cover it with some trashy looking case. I buy an iPhone for what it is.
