Check out how the specs from Apple’s latest iPhone 6 compares to those of its Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 flagship rivals.
In addition to the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch wearable, Apple unveiled the iPhone 6, a stylish 4.7-inch handset with a faster A8 processor, NFC, and a 720p Retina HD display. Available on September 19, the phone will launch in eight countries, including the US, UK, Australia, and parts of Asia.
