Posted by David Covington on October 3, 2014

The recent iPhone 6 launch was a great success for Apple. Apple sold more iPhones during it’s opening weekend than ever before. If you walk past the iconic Apple store on 5th Avenue, you’ll still see lines to purchase either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

If you’re still deciding if it’s worth to upgrade to the iPhones instead of upgrading to the iPhone 5s we can help you with figuring out which one is best for you. It may be worth upgrading to the iPhone 5s instead of the iPhone 6 to save you some money.

Let’s start off by watch the YouTube video below on the comparison between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s:

The new larger LCD screens are said to be the reason for the extreme high demand, but are the larger screen right for everyone? The 4.7-inch for the iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch for the iPhone 6 Plus are much larger the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5s. On both iPhone 6 models, depending on your hand size, it’s tough to reach the top of the screen with one hand; this could be a draw back for some people. While the screen resolution has been increased from 1136 by 640 on the 5s to 1334 by 750 on the iPhone 6 in order to fill up that extra screen space, pixel density remains at 326 pixels per inch which means that you will be able to see more, but you won’t be able to see better.When you go to purchase your new iPhone, one decision you need to make is which screen size is better for you, 4-inch of the iPhone 5s, the 4.7-inch display of the iPhone 6 or the 5.5-inch display of the iPhone 6 Plus. 

Camera and Battery Life

The strongest features on the iPhone 6 models are the improved front and rear cameras and the battery life on the smartphone. In terms of megapixels of the cameras, the rear camera is at 8-mega pixels. Though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both feature an upgraded camera that has a new five-element lens and a wider aperture. This allows the iPhone 6 to focus faster when lining up a shot. The battery life on the iPhone 6 is now 11 hours from the previous 10 hours.

 

Internal Storage

The iPhone 6, on the other hand, comes with the 16 GB option, a 64 GB option, and a 128 GB option. The iPhone 5s has two internal storage capacity options: 16 GB and 32 GB.

Without a two-year contract, the 16 GB model of the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 costs $649, the 64 GB costs $749, and the 128 GB costs $849. The iPhone 5s, costs $549 for the 16 GB model and $599 for the 32 GB model.

With the increased iCloud features provided by Apple for a lower price, it can offset the smaller size of the internal storage on your iPhone. But if you really need the extra space, then the introduction of the 128GB option may be the best option for you.

 

Overall, for many the deciding factor comes down to the price and screen size. If you like the larger screen size and the price is not an issue, it’s recommend to upgrade the iPhone 6 over the iPhone 5s.
