Image stabilization helps in the reduction of motion in the camera. What this implies is that when you are about to snap a photo, the movement of your hand may affect the quality, but the image stabilization will help improve focus and delivery of top quality images.

Image stabilization can be achieved in two different ways: software and hardware.

In the software stabilization, there is a program that has automatically been set to tweak your photos for a better look. This you can find in both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

The iPhone 6 Plus has a greater advantage in this aspect as it boasts of optical image stabilization and this cannot be found in the iPhone 6. So if the only camera you have in your closet is your phone then it will be a very good option to go for the iPhone 6 Plus

The hardware image stabilization utilizes the phone’s M8 motion co-processor and its gyroscope to correct movement and this is even better. And that is the advantage that you get in the iPhone 6 Plus which is not found in the iPhone 6
