The iPhone 6 shows strong adoption around the world, but the iPhone 6 Plus is popular in Asia

With two new iPhones this year, many companies are trying to get a grasp on which one is more popular for consumers across the globe.

According to new data put together by AppLovin, what many believe to be true, is, apparently, quite true: the iPhone 6 is outselling the iPhone 6 Plus around the world. However, while the 4.7-inch device may be a smash-hit across the globe, the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus is proving to be quite popular in some key areas, like most of Asia.

The analytics data that AppLovin has published for November 2014 shows that the iPhone 6 is holding onto the majority of sales in places like Austrlia, Canada and Norway, with a roughly 80/20 split in favor of the smaller iPhone variant. As the analytics head east, though, the numbers start to slide towards the iPhone 6 Plus. Within the United Kingdom and Germany, the split is 79/21 and 78/22, respectively.

Landing in the Asian market, including South Korea, China, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines, the iPhone 6 Plus starts to show some aggressiveness. Indeed, pre-order numbers for the new iPhones within China alone showed many customers leaning towards the iPhone 6 Plus, and these numbers seem to reflect those aspirations. South Korea, the home of Samsung, is the only country in Asia that does not have an iPhone 6 Plus adoption rate above 30%, which could very well likely be due to the presence of Samsung and its laundry list of huge devices, or even LG’s recently launched G3.

It is worth noting that AppLovin shows that in the United States the split between the two devices is 80/20, in favor of the iPhone 6. Earlier in November a report surfaced that suggested the iPhone 6 is actually outselling the iPhone 6 Plus 3:1, accounting for around 68 percent of total iPhone sales, while the iPhone 6 Plus sits around 23 or 24 percent.

Did you pick the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus?
