And here are the new iPhones lined up against the iPad.

The 5.2-inch Nexus 5 has a larger screen than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, but the devices are actually about the same size.

And the 4.7-inch Moto X sitting to the right of the iPhone 6 Plus is actually a bit smaller than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

The thinnest iPhones yet

There's no denying that the new, larger iPhones are also very thin. The iPhone 6 is a scant 6.9mm thick, while the iphone 6 Plus is 7.1mm thick.

The closest contender is the 8.1mm-thick Samsung Galaxy S5, followed by the 8.6mm-thich Nexus 5. The HTC One M8 for Windows Phone comes in at 9.35mm thick, while the Moto X sits at 10.4mm.
