On the camera part; both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus getting a new iSight camera with 8 MP sensors with improved auto focus and larger pixels. There is one big difference between these two cameras and its a feature in iPhone 6 Plus called Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). While the iPhone 6 gets Digital Image Stabilization.

It doesnt seem to be small difference, because OIS uses special algorithms to manipulate the camera lens to compensate hand shaking while taking photos.
