Over the last few years, smartphones have evolved to accommodate for new use cases, primarily multimedia consumption – gaming, watching YouTube videos and movies, and browsing the web. As a result smartphones have grown from less than 4-inches in size to an average rapidly approaching the 5-inch threshold.
Apple is one of the very last to jump on the larger smartphone bandwagon. Its last increase in size was from a 3.5-inch display to a 4-inch display, adding only vertical dimension and pixels to the existing panel.
That wasn’t enough, though. Other smartphones dwarfed the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. So Apple reacted. This time around, it announced two new variations of the iPhone we know and love: one with a 4.7-inch display and another with a 5.5-inch display.
The larger of the two is called the iPhone 6 Plus, which I unboxed on Friday.
But just how large is an Apple-made 5.5-inch smartphone? We compare it with other, comparable Android devices, some tablets, and a host of common household items we have laying around, just to help you get a feel for how large it is. Watch our iPhone 6 Plus size comparison to see just how large it is!
