    Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Full comparison (Video)

    Starting out with specifications, the iPhone 6 Plus features a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 (401 ppi), a dual-core Apple A8 chip clocked at 1.4GHz, a quad-core PowerVR GX6450 GPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 2,915 mAh battery. There’s no denying the marginal update in specifications when compared to previous generation iOS devices, but that doesn’t mean there’s a huge performance gap between the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4.

    As for the Note 4’s specifications, we have a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (515 ppi), a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor (Exynos variant in some models), Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,220 mAh battery. On paper, it would seem that the Note 4 is miles faster than the iPhone 6 Plus. Every single detail on that spec sheet points to a better device, but as real world usage has proved in the past, that’s not always the case. Either way, your preference will probably be based on the overall ecosystem and each device’s features/functionality.

    A new iPhone 6 problem arises: Dye from jeans is ruining the iPhone’s plastic strips



    Apple fans breathed a sigh of relief this past summer when Nikkei, typically a reliable source of accurate early information on unreleased Apple devices, issued a report stating that the white plastic strips we had seen on countless iPhone 6 mockups would not be part of the final design. Those strips, which many people found to be quite an eyesore, reportedly stemmed from a misunderstanding of some iPhone 6 schematics that had previously leaked. Instead, the Nikkei claimed that those areas would actually be covered by glass panels similar to the ones on the back of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

    Unfortunately for people who think those plastic strips ruin the sleek look of the phone, they were still present when Apple’s next-generation handsets were unveiled last month.

    Of course, had Apple found another way to give the antennas inside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus some breathing room that was feasible technically and financially in such a slim phone, the company might have opted to ditch the plastic in favor of glass or another solution. And thanks to a new issue that seems to have arisen in recent weeks, we know of at least a few people who wish Apple had indeed found another solution.

    BGR has spoken with several iPhone 6 owners over the past couple of weeks who have encountered a very annoying issue with Apple’s new iPhones. The issue involves pockets on men’s jeans, but this time it’s not a matter of Apple’s gigantic iPhone phablet fitting into pockets. In fact, these particular iPhone users might wish their smartphones didn’t fit in their pockets.

    Some iPhone owners who don’t cover their phones with a protective case are finding that after sliding an iPhone in and out of the pockets on their jeans for a period of time, some of the dye from the denim is rubbing off onto the plastic strips on the back of the phone.

    The result is an unsightly discoloration that makes the iPhone look dirty and old. Conventional soaps and other cleaning products one might use in an effort to remove the darkening on the plastic strips apparently have not worked.

    One BGR reader jokingly referred to the problem as “Dyegate.”

    The photos below were sent to us via email by a BGR reader who asked not to be identified, and they show an iPhone 6 impacted by this issue.











    Each of the people in contact with BGR who had iPhones impacted by this issue said they received similar responses when they contacted Apple for assistance. According to accounts relayed to BGR, Apple support staff instructed users to carefully scrub their iPhones with various common cleaning products. When those products failed to remove the dye from the iPhones, no further assistance was provided.

    This is not the first time we’ve seen an issue like this. Last year’s HTC One smartphone featured white plastic strips over some internal antennas long before the iPhone 6 was unveiled, and it too suffered from issues involving dye from denim jeans transferring onto the plastic.

    One of BGR’s own HTC One review units suffered from the issue, though a careful cleaning with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser removed all of the dye from the plastic on the back of the phone. It is unclear at this time if a Magic Eraser will work on the iPhone 6, however.

    Debunk: No, Apple didn’t change up iPhone 6 Plus internals to avoid bending



    Reports speculating that Apple has recently added a new reinforcement to iPhone 6 Plus units following a controversy over rare instances of the device bending under pressure aren’t true, according to a source close to the situation.

    Earlier today users noticed an increase in weight for newly purchased units of the iPhone 6 Plus compared to the 172grams Apple quotes on its website. Repair guide website iFixit noted in a Reddit post that it tested a newly purchased device and found a weight difference of 172.7 grams to 173.5 grams. “We had a Day One iPhone 6 Plus, 128 GB, Silver, Verizon unit. I put it on the dealer scale we have on-premises, and it weighed 172.7 grams. It’s on the high end, but still within Apple’s listed 172 gram spec. I just went to the store and bought a brand-spanking-new iPhone 6 Plus, 128 GB, Space Gray, Verizon unit…It weighs 173.5 grams, a whopping 0.8 grams more than the Day One unit.”

    The reports have been widely picked up by several news sites and some are speculating that the weight difference could be due to added reinforcements to address bending concerns. We’ve confirmed, however, that the difference in weight is normal and that newly shipping iPhone 6 Plus units have not been silently altered.

    A footnote on Apple’s specs website for iPhone 6 Plus notes that “Size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process,” and sources tell us a 1.5 gram weight variance between any two iPhone 6 Plus units is within what is expected.

    Apple originally responded to concerns over bending by noting that the issue is “extremely rare” under normal use and that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature “stainless steel and titanium inserts to reinforce high stress locations and use the strongest glass in the smartphone industry.”

    Apple’s next iPhone 6 rollout starts Nov. 14th, includes Brazil, Colombia and Philipp



    If you’ve been eagerly waiting for the iPhone 6 to go on sale in your country, you may be in luck. While Apple has not yet made an official announcement of the next phase in its rollout of the iPhone 6/Plus, we’ve so far spotted that the new phones are scheduled to go on sale in at least ten (and counting) new countries on November 14th. Local carriers have so far announced the November 14th availability of the new iPhones in: Brazil, Philippines, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, Lebanon, Kenya and Nigeria, with Malaysia also looking set to see the phones around the same time …

    The iPhone 6/Plus was first launched in September in the U.S., U.K., France, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and Japan, where it achieved record-breaking sales in the opening weekend. A second wave of more than 20 countries followed later the same month, with 36 further countries added in October.

    Apple has stated that this year will be the fastest iPhone rollout ever, with the new phones on sale in more than 115 countries by the end of the year. November 14th is coincidentally the same date Sprint’s new iPhone for Life plan, which allows customers to upgrade every two years, hits the USA.

    800 gorgeous iPhone 6 Plus wallpapers you can download for free



    The iPhone 6 Plus has a big, gorgeous display that demands big, gorgeous wallpaper for its home screen and lock screen. And thankfully, we’ve spotted a huge stash of beautiful iPhone 6 Plus wallpapers posted by Imgur user MadManSpecter, who first alerted the world to this massive gallery over at Reddit.

    Even though it’s very easy to just create your own custom wallpapers for your iPhone, there’s something nice about having a big selection to choose from without having to put in any work of your own.

    MadManSpecter says that he created the gallery using wallpapers that he found all over the web so this definitely looks like a big undertaking that took a lot of work. The wallpapers he found range from beautiful natural landscapes such as forests and mountaintops, to incredible photos of outer space, to up-close pictures of ladybugs and, yes, to wallpapers featuring your favorite video game characters from Pokemon and Mario Bros.

    To get a look at all the great wallpapers available, check out MadManSpector’s Imgur gallery available at the source here.

    81 stunning iPhone 6 wallpapers you can download for free



    Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might not pack as many pixels on their displays as the quad HD screens on smartphones like the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but there’s absolutely no question that in terms of display quality, the iPhones are two of the best in the business. The screens are bright and clear, and colors are far more bold and vivid than they are on most other smartphone displays.

    So an important issue arises: How do you find beautiful high-resolution wallpapers that make the most of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus’ stunning screens?

    Here at BGR, we always do our best to find and share gorgeous wallpapers for your iPhone or Android handset. For example, we recently shared a collection of 100 wallpapers that look fantastic on the iPhone 6, and another 20 beautiful iPhone 6 Plus wallpapers.

    Now, thanks to a new Tumblr blog, we’re back with another 81 wallpapers that look stunning on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus or any other smartphone out there.

    What’s most interesting about this new batch of wallpapers is that unlike most wallpapers, which are made digitally or at least dramatically enhanced on a computer, these wallpapers are all simply aerial photos captured by satellites. They were cropped and compiled by a Tumblr blog aptly named Aerial Wallpapers, and despite the fact that they’re sized for the iPhone 6 Plus, they look amazing on just about any smartphone.

    Watch what happens when an iPhone 6 meets an angle grinder



    The whole Bendgate incident prompted Apple to release some details about its own internal stress-testing policies for new iPhones. It’s unlikely that anyone at Cupertino carries out iPhone stress-testing quite to the degree of YouTube user TechRax, however.

    Masquerading as a tech channel, Ukrainian YouTuber TechRax is really just using that an excuse to destroy the latest must-have gadgets. This week, he turned his attention to the iPhone 6 — a device that has previously had its endurance tested by him in boiling Coca-Cola, deep snow, under the treads of a tank — and a variety of other scenarios that, frankly, are unlikely to befall your precious smartphone.

    In TechRax’s latest “experiment” he sets on the gold iPhone 6 with a DeWalt angle grinder. The results are… well, largely what you’d expect. You can check out the video after the jump.





    The real questions I have after watching the video have very little to do with the iPhone 6’s solidity, and everything to do with how TechRax affords so many iPhones — and why he is allowed such free access to power tools.

    True nobility lies not in being superior to another person, but in being superior to our previous selves.

    And how are you planning to destroy it?

    Video: iPhone 6 free falls from space in the ultimate drop test



    How annoying is this? You drop your phone accidentally from barely 3 feet off the ground and the screen shatters instantly. Meanwhile, Urban Armor Gear flies an iPhone 6 into space and intentionally drops it back down to Earth, and it emerges unscathed. UAG’s video isn’t going to make the sting of having dropped and cracked your smartphone any less painful, but it’s still pretty fun to watch.

    iPhone case maker Urban Armor Gear recently slapped one of its latest protective cases onto an iPhone 6 and floated it up to space on a rig attached to a balloon. After the phone froze and rapidly discharged, the company dropped it back to Earth from an altitude of more than 100,000 feet above England.

    UAG also recorded the whole ordeal with two GoPro cameras, of course, and posted the resulting video on YouTube.

    A parachute was deployed to break the phone’s fall during its descent, so of course this can’t really be considered a true drop test. What was the point, then? We have no idea, but it’s pretty neat to watch, nevertheless.

    The full video of the iPhone’s climb and drop is embedded below.
