Comparing Apple iPhone 6 and 5s – Layman’s Terms

People believe that iPh 5s is better than iPh 6 and when we ask them why, they end up saying “iPh 6 bends easily”. Poor guys, phones are meant to talk and not to test your strength.

Anyways to make it clear I am posting layman differences between both the models:


Phone iPhone 6 iPhone 5s Comments
Capacity and Price Unlocked
16GB $649
64GB $749
128GB $849
16GB $549
32GB $599
128GB Not Available
So if you look at 16GB model, you can get iPh 6 just by spending $100 more. So it is not costly
Weight 129 grams 112 grams So iPh 6 is just 17 grams heavier
Display Retina HD display Retina Display HD display is missing in iPh 5s

CPU Dual-core 1.4 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) Dual-core 1.3 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) I guess it is self explainatory. Off course 1.4 GHz is better than 1.3 GHz.
Camera 8-megapixel iSight camera with geo-tagging 8-megapixel iSight camera Nearly but not exactly same. I mean how many times we use geo-tagging?
