5.5-inch iPhone 6 dummy (Danny Winget 002)

I wish Apple put me out of my misery and released the iPhone 6 already because an influx of videos comparing those questionable dummy units to just about anything is overwhelming me. Just this morning, for example, I pointed you to a video which shows off the supposed minor changes in the next iPad’s design.

Now I’ve decided to highlight another video that I think does a great job explaining how the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 would compare to popular 5.5-inch Android handsets such as the LG G3, Oppo Find 7 and One Plus One.

It’s right after the break so give it a quick watch and join us in comments for a healthy discussion…

In this video, YouTuber Danny Winget delivers a size comparison between a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 dummy unit (based off the rumors) and several Android handsets that incorporate a 5.5-inch screen.

A screen measuring 5.5 inches diagonally would mark a significant departure from the current four-inch iPhones and put Apple’s iconic smartphone into the so-called phablet category.

As a result, the device would compete squarely against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S5, LG’s G3, Sony’s Xperia Z2 and phones like the Oppo Find 7 and the One Plus One.

According to our non-scientific poll, respondents are predominantly leaning toward a 4.7-inch model, with nearly one out of each three respondents preferring the bigger model.

Leaked information suggests that the new iPhones should go on sale on September 19 so we’re expecting a media event in early-September though nothing is set in stone until those invites go out.

    The 5.5 inch bezel region on the iPhone looks huge compared to the Android devices.

    • Antzboogie

      Yeah I don’t like the huge bezels. Weren’t they supposed to shrink that??

        Remember in the video dummy units are being used. In reality nobody outside of Apple and the manufacturing chain knows what it’s going to look like…

      • m3nphls

        But all these leaks the past few years have been spot on accurate. so…..

  • Jonathan

    Shut up and take my money.

    • @dongiuj

      Ok

  • ɑղժɾҽա

    I’d have to wait to see the real thing in order to be able to decide. I need to see the spec differences.

    • Trust me this is the real deal.

  • Erik Pacheco

    Love the new flat design but hate the white overlays. I’d probably get a black iPhone 6.

    • Xee

      I was thinking exactly the same as you.

  • MinorOS

    why 2 sizes !!! , i can’t believe that 5,5 crap 🙁

    • pizentu

      Just because they are releasing two sizes doesnt mean you have to buy both. They are doing two sizes to give people an option. What is wrong with having options? Dont like the 5.5 than get the 4.7. Still think the 4.7 is too big, than stay with your 5s.

      I left Apple when they refused to offer anything over 3.5 inches. They attempted to lure people like me back with a meager 4 inch phone. That was a joke. Now with a 5.5 inch option, I am truly looking at a possible return to apple. Though they have to do a bit more than larger phone to bring me back. The Note 4 looks like its going to be a beast.

      Im no fanboy. I will go to the phone that offers the best for me. Right now its impossible for me to choose which I will get. Thankfully I have at least 3 months to decide.

      • MinorOS

        The problem begins when the screen is not the only difference, AKA 5,5 premium model leaks, so what happens when I want the best iphone but not 5.5 inch?

      • pizentu

        Same thing I do when I have to decide which device I want. Chose the one that fits you most. Either that or buy both.

        If Apple wants to justify a hundred dollar increase for the 5.5, then it has to offer more than just .8 inches. There are tons of apple fans that would be ok with paying so much more but not everyone will just buy it because of the logo. Gotta justify the price.

  • Inseltraeumer

    don’t like those huge bezels left and right from the screen. looks especially bad on the 4.7″ model. let’s hope those are not 100% accurate mockups 🙂

  • Tony

    I knew it was going to be a tough choice for me but now I’m really debating considering the recent report of a different camera stabilization on the 5.5. If that’s the case then I have no real reason not to get that one. Though honestly I feel like it’s over kill screen wise since I know that’s not going to fit in my pocket at all. Once announced officially my decision will be perfectly clear, gut reaction 5.5 only because of the camera and it will be last upgrade for a while as far as phones are concerned.

  • WaterTrooper

    I miss the smaller iPhone. I have big hands too. I feel bad for the smaller ladies that need two hands for the iPhone 5 & 5S.

    • Rowan09

      Ladies love big things. The smallest women drive trucks and a lot of them have Note 2s.

  • JayDee917

    My guess:

    4.7″
    16gb – $199
    32gb – $299
    64gb – $399

    5.5″
    32gb – $299
    64gb – $399
    128g – $499
