With the arrival of the iPhone 6 on the horizon, speculation over its size and design is rife. We’ve been sent a couple of iPhone 6 cases from our in-the-know suppliers, so we thought we’d put them up to the iPhone 5S to see how the size compares.
The two cases we’ve received are the ArmourDillo Hybrid Protective case, and the Moshi SenseCover, both having proved popular with previous devices. The ArmourDillo case offers more rugged, two-layered protection against drops and bumps, while the Moshi SenseCover is a more stylish case featuring a touch sensitive cover allowing you to check the time and even answer calls, without having to open the cover.
We put an iPhone 5S in the two cases, and the gaps in both support the rumours that the iPhone 6 will sport a 4.7” screen, a 0.7” increase from the 5S. This is no real surprise after Apple acknowledged that consumers want larger screens, and given that 5” screens are seemingly now standard among competing flagships.
The slots for the camera on both cases suggest that this will remain in its familiar top left position on the back of the phone. However, it would appear Apple are now moving to a side-mounted power button, as opposed to the one on the top of the device that they have adopted for all previous iPhone models. The power button will be on the right hand side, with volume controls remaining on the left. This would make the button placement familiar to those coming from an Android device, and will arguably make the device easier for one-handed operation.
I hope you enjoyed our quick size comparison of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S. Let us know what you think of the new iPhone 6 size by commenting below, and keep an eye out for more iPhone 6 Cases coming in at Mobile Fun soon!
