MTN and Zambia already launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the case of MTN, so now Zamtel joins in the action and has also launched the iPhone 6.
Here’s a comparison a of the iPhones and the offers they’re coming with from all 3 mobile operators:
|iPhone 6||iPhone 6 Plus||iPhone 6||iPhone 6 Plus||iPhone 6||iPhone 6 Plus|

|OFFER||1GB free Starter Bundle and 20MB every day for 6 months||1GB data and 100 SMSes for 3 months||2GB (once-off)|
Here are some of the specifications of both types of iPhones, as compiled in a previous article: Being noticeably larger at 5.5 inches, the 6 Plus packs a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution in its screen compared to the 4.7 inches 6’s 750 x 1334 pixels, meaning the 6 Plus has sharper images.For full details of what Airtel and MTN are offering with their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus offers, click here and here respectively.
Dimensions: The 6 Plus weighs in at 172g, more than the 6’s 129g which is as expected, and has dimensions of 158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm, making it thicker, longer and wider than the iPhone 6 which comes in 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm dimensions.
CPU and Processor: They both run on the Apple A8 chipset with a dual-core 1.4 GHz Cyclone processor.
Storage: They both have choices of 16/64/128 GB variants and have 1GB of RAM
Camera: Both smartphones have an 8MP rear camera with dual focus and an LED flash (although the iPhone 6 Plus’ camera has an optical image stabilizer), and a 1.2MP front camera.
Battery: The 6 Plus has a larger battery at 2915 mAh while the iPhone 6 has a 1810 mAh one.

This should help you decide which offer suits you best. Clearly MTN and Airtel has the cheaper deal among the 3 operators for the 16GB models of the iPhone 6 so if you’re looking to save a buck, that’s the offer we’d recommend.
Only MTN has the iPhone 6 Plus among the 3 so it has no competition for that offer, unless you get the phone from other retailers with whom you may negotiate for a cheaper price.
