Apple iPhone 6 (5.5″ vs 4.7″): Sneak Peek & Comparisons (4K)

by birtanpublished on May 7, 2021

Hey guys Mike here the Detroit pork with a sneak peek at what might be the larger 5.5 inch iPhone 6 I've already looked at the 4.7 inch mock-up last month but for as long as there has been a 4.7 inch iPhone rumour there has been this 5.5 inch iPhone rumor the rumors were further confirmed when blueprints of both phone sizes were leaked virtually simultaneously now the mock-ups were looking at today are based on those leaked blueprints which accessory manufacturers are using to develop their products ahead of the iPhone launch now these mock-ups do not confirm the final details finishes or materials but does

Give us a general idea of the rough design and dimensions now the 5.5 inch iPhone looks very much like a scaled up version of the 4.7 inch on the front we have our earpiece with a camera and some sensors which appears to add something new in the upper corner now below we have the larger home button with a familiar touch ID ring now the display is believed to have the same resolution of the rumoured 4.7 inch iPhone which is 1704 by 960 that would give us a pixel density of 416 PPI on the 4.7 inch iPhone and 355 on the 5.5 inch iPhone now on the back we have

A mostly metal unibody design which is framed by these stripes now these are believed to be antenna insulators and on the mock-up they're just painted on but they'll be actually part of the structure in the final product now the camera module is protruding on the iPhone 5.5 inch which is also indicated in the blueprints now this may mean that the 5.5 inch has an exclusive camera features such as optical image stabilization we also have a microphone port and an LED flash right next to it which lacks the dual LED design of a current phone now in the bottom we have

A familiar setup with the headphone jack on the Left flanked by a microphone a lightning jack at the middle flanked by screws and the speaker grille which is normally larger than the other phones which may mean better speaker quality unless I will find our volume keys and mute switch which appear to be roughly the same size as the 4.7 inch all representing a significant design change from the previous iPhone on the top will find the sleep/wake buns have been moved that's because they have now been relocated on the right hand side just above the SIM tray this makes them

Easier to reach on larger screen phones we actually see this a lot on end phones now notice however that the 5.5 inch and 4.7 inch share the same location for this button which is interesting since some larger Android phones placed these buttons farther down on the site to make them more reachable now in the iPhones case the home button is frequently used but you can see that reaching the home button and sleep/wake button without shifting your grip is no longer possible with a 5.5 inch this is not the case on the 4.7 inch model however at least in my case

Now while the 4.7 inch screen on the iPhone is fairly average in the realm of smartphones today actually a little on the small side now next to popular mainstream phones like the HTC One m8 and the gs5 and so on which are now 5 inches are bigger the 5.5 inch is very large taking on competitors like the popular 5.7 inch note 3 and the 5.5 inch LG g3 now when you compare the 5.5 inch iPhone to these larger competitors you can see that the iPhone has a significantly larger bezel area at the top and bottom to balance out the presence of the off screen home button

This is especially notable when compared to the very compact LG g3 with the same 5.5 inch screen size now you can still get bigger phones in this of course you can get the six point four inch Xperia Z ultra or the 6.3 inch Galaxy mega among others the iPhone 5.5 is still a remarkably thin phone just as thin as the 4.7 inch model but substantially thinner than the competitors like the LG g3 HTC One m8 Sony Xperia z2 and Galaxy Note 3 it's also thinner than the iPhone 5s but not quite as thin as the iPod Touch but the Rhondda that just helped to visually slim down the design even

Further so in conclusion assuming both these mock-up designs are accurate there is no denying the fact that the iPhones have larger bezels which looks somewhat dated next to phones with more compact designs however the ultra-thin design makes these larger phones more comfortable handle than I expected ultimately these phones are pretty long and make them less comfortable to handle one-handed than some of the other competition with even larger displays so what do you think if you were to buy one of these iPhones what screen size would you

Prefer 4.7 inch or 5.5 inch please let me know in the comments section below please stay tuned for continuing coverage of the next generation iPhones and thanks for watching I'll see you again in the next video
