From £43.50 a month or £619 SIM-free

Key features:
  • 5.5-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen
  • 8-megapixel camera
  • Two-day battery life
  • Excellent gaming performance
Apple’s first stab at a phablet is a great start and is comfortably up there with the Note 4 as one of the best big phones to own right now.
 
The iPhone 6 Plus takes some getting use thanks to that enlarged frame but the slim, curved aluminium body certainly helps. It’s the first Apple phone to feature a 5.5-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 display and while that’s not up there with the Note 4 or the LG G3 for screen quality, it’s still an excellent display to watch videos or play games on.
 
Like the iPhone 6, it’s powered by the new quad-core, 64-bit A8 processor with to handle more demanding 3D gaming. The big news on the camera front is the inclusion of optical image stabilisation, to improve low-light photography. It’s still one of the best smartphone cameras.
 
Battery life for the iPhone 6 Plus is strong too, managing to get through two days unless you use it intensively.  For design and ease of use, the 6 Plus is a big and beautiful phone that doesn’t shirk on performance.
