    So I've been considering switching to the 6 from 6+ ... My store has a 6 on display and I noticed it seems the smaller 6 screen seems more "high def" looking compared to my 6+ .... I thought I was going crazy so i changed my wallpaper and brightness to match the 6 display....and the 6 still seems more high def. anyone else notice this?

    That wouldn't make sense since 6plus higher ppi

    Maybe have an eye swap procedure like in the movie Minority Report?

    Even though there's only so much the naked eye can see, that is definitely not the case. I'm not sure what you're seeing but the PPI is greater on the 6+.

    Perhaps you have a defective screen on the 6 +

    The ghost of Steve Jobs is possessing you and telling you that no eye can see higher than 3 hunnard + ppi. In all seriousness, I hate the displays of the samsungs even though they are higher ppi, maybe it's just your brain's preference?

    I compared text on both and you can definitely tell the 6 is a lower resolution than the 6+. Seeing them up close made up my mind for me.

    wasnt the text I was comparing, it was the wallpaper on the lockscreen specifically.

    My ex-wife had slightly different sized earlobes, so I traded her in for a version that was easier to look at.

    There is a noticeable difference with text.some of the differences will not be noticeable yet in apps that have no been optimized for the 6/6 plus, being that they are just blown up displays of the existing apps, and in a way will look worse on the 6 plus

    Pre ordered a 6 and 6+ to test both and make decision on what I'm going to keep. Last week used a 6. This week using a 6+ before my 14 days are up. Stuff looks better on the 6+. Imagine when apps get optimized

    Interested in hearing your thoughts after using the plus. I have the plus and love it, but, think I want a 6 as well!

    I should have done this too ...

    Can you see yourself carrying around the plus? Is it that much better than the 6?

    Was it the exact same dimensions for the wallpaper? I can imagine that scaling up a wallpaper with the 6 resolution to the 6 Plus resolution might make the Plus look a little soft. Use a wallpaper that is 2662x2662 (if parallax is enabled - according to http://http://dekoapp.com/parallax/) on the Plus and see if it looks sharper.

    I'm looking at both side by side and can't tell the difference other than the 6 plus being bigger.

    I don't want to bash either phone or get flamed here. But honestly I'm leaning towards the 6+. Just reading the stuff on the forums about the 6+ scares you away from it. But until u use it yourself for a couple of days and realize it's easy to adapt to u like it. The display and battery life is awesome. Haven't seen any lag. Phone is running great. I always tell my friends don't go by what you read on forums. The population here only accounts for probably 1% of the actual iPhone users. Once you read issues others are having on here you start to nit pick your device. I like the 6. But I like the 6+ better. I'm a small guy 5'6" 180 lbs. I can 1 hand use it. When I'm in bed or restaurant or bar I prefer typing with 2 hands. I have regular size fingers. So far I feel comfortable with it. But hey that's me. 6 or 6+ both are great. Both have great displays and battery life's. Either or is a win-win situation. I think once apps get optimized we will see what both displays are capable off especially the 6+.

    I was comparing the default wallpapers the phones come with. The mountain/night sky one. Also that link did not work for me.
