On its back, the iPhone is mostly a clean, smooth slab of aluminum -- betrayed only by the slight protrusion of the camera lens. The Note 3, meanwhile, has a faux-leather plastic back that is also quite comfortable.

The iPhone is notably thinner and also features far less flair, but overall placement of buttons and controls is quite similar.

Nothing at all up top on the iPhone, while the Note 3 features the headphone jack up here.

The power button on the iPhone 6 Plus has shifted to the right from its traditional position on the top. Thankfully.

Speaker grilles and cable connectors on both. The iPhone 6 Plus puts the 3.5mm headphone jack down here. The Note makes room for a stylus.
