iPhone 6 Plus vs Nexus 6 vs Note 4: Which is best value?

In the market for a big screen smartphone? Read on and find out if the iPhone 6 Plus, Nexus 6 or Note 4 should be your next device

Best value

Before we give our verdict, let's take a look at the pricing for the devices. For the purpose of this test we compared the cost of entry-level models from Carphone Warehouse.

Nexus 6 (32GB) - Free from 34.50 per month or 499 SIM-free

Note 4 (32GB) - Free from 39.50 per month or 599 SIM-free

iPhone 6 Plus (16GB) - Free from 48.50 per month or 619 SIM-free

When it comes to value, it's hard to justify the iPhone 6 Plus as the winner. It's considerably more expensive than its rivals and comes with half the storage. The price jumps to 699 for a device with 64GB of storage and you'll have to pay 58.50 a month if you want it free on a contract.

The Nexus 6 is the cheapest handset available here but remains another big investment. While we love the pure Android software, issues relating to display brightness/tinting along with the iffy battery life stop it from getting a wholehearted recommendation.

Despite, software complexity, the Note 4 is the best phablet you can buy. With an excellent display, long battery life, micro SD support and strong performance, it's the total package.
