After months of speculation and rumors, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are finally here, delivering on the hopes of millions of Apple fans looking for a boost in size, speed and overall power.

Unveiled Tuesday at the Flint Center in Cupertino, California, not far from Apple’s headquarters, the new flagship iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7-inch screen and 16, 64 or 128GB of storage. The larger iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen and the same storage options.

But while we  know that the new iPhones have a built-in supply of eager consumers ready to snap them up, those still on the fence might be wondering how the devices stack up against the competition.
