Differences between iPhone 5s and iPhone 6

The new iPhone 6 has recently burst into the market creating one of the greatest hype of all time. With Apple still being one of the most popular smart phone brand in the world, the question many die-hard Apple fans are faced with is whether to replace their iPhone 5s with the all new iPhone 6. There are various views to this as there are those sections that say that the new features offered are worth the change. However, there are also those who are of the opinion that the new features are not so big a deal which would make the change worthy.  Here we will compare some key differences between the two iPhones, so our readers can make their own choice regarding which one to finally have in their pockets!

As the trend sets up for keeping large and slim cell phones and larger screens are preferred to their smaller counterparts, Apple makes sure that iPhone 6 caters to this want of the consumer. The 4.5” screen size of iPhone 6 is about 17.5% bigger than the 4” screen of iPhone 5s. In addition to this, the iPhone 6 also offers a higher screen resolution of 1334×750 pixels compared to iPhone 5s’s 1136×640 pixels.

For those of you who like slimmer hand held devices, iPhone 6 is once again more suited to your needs as it has a width of 6.9mm whereas the iPhone 5s is slightly wider at 7.6 mm. Moreover, the iPhone 6 makes a greater effort to reach out to the various parts of the world in this digital age and rapid globalizing market. Whereas the iPhone 5s has as many as 34 languages installed, its newer version, namely the iPhone 6 has a staggering total of 56 supported languages. Wherever you live in the world, you can be pretty sure to have your language supported as all major languages have been made available.

Next is the internal storage that we can compare; the previous iPhones including 5s, 4 etc. came with different hard drives and you could choose any one from 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. The new iPhone 6 recognizes the need for greater storage as the world businesses surely now resonate around financial and business activity being carried out on your smartphones and goes once again a step further in making the option of 128 GB available. This, however, is too much for the common man and should not be the only reason to shift to an iPhone 6.

Although it would rarely be the case but if you have, even for once, felt that your iPhone 5s has been slow or not able to give you the high speed performance that you have been looking for, then its newer version gives you a slightly higher processor; a dual core of 1.4 GHz.

The iPhone 6 allows for better quality of video recording whereby you can enjoy 1080 by 60 fps. In this regard, iPhone 5s also hasn’t lagged behind much as it also offers 1080 by 30 fps.

Just when you thought that iPhone 6 is the ultimate choice and you should certainly give up your previous version, we would like to point out some things that would counter that thought! The iPhone 5s is lighter and a tiny bit narrower. This makes it what we call ‘pocket friendly’ and it is easy to reach the screen corners if you just use one finger to control/operate your phone. With the larger screen size of iPhone 6, you might have to use more than a finger and that might slow your work down. The iPhone 5s has a lesser volume and has cheaper spares available. Moreover, the price of iPhone 5s has declined sufficiently with the introduction of iPhone 6, so if you are watching your expenses, you know exactly which one to choose!
