Apple iPhone 6s review: Exploring the coveted third dimension

 

Don't be fooled by its looks because the iPhone 6s is a brand new phone

Improved construction ; 3D Touch will reap genuine benefits ; Faster processor and double the RAM ; 12MP rear and 5MP front camera ; TouchID is among the best finger scanners

Cameras lack OIS and could be higher in resolution ; Battery life still lesser than rivals

Every part of the iPhone 6s is brand new, other than its timeless good-looks. Improvements have been made to its construction, software, hardware, usability and imaging technologies. To consider it an incremental upgrade is incorrect. The iPhone 6 was...

iPhone 6S review: Subtle upgrades make a superlative smartphone

 

When I showed the iPhone 6S to one of my wife's friends, she got nostalgic. She waxed emotional about its predecessor, the iPhone 6. It changed her life. Bigger screen, better camera, and Apple Pay. Everyone wanted these things. It was as close to a...

Improved speed everywhere (new processor, faster wireless, quicker Touch ID sensor); a sturdier body; better front and rear cameras; a bold new 3D Touch pressure-sensitive display that could end up being a really useful tool in apps down the road, and...

Same battery life as the iPhone 6. The 6S Plus model remains the only way to get optical image stabilization for photos and video, plus better battery life. You'll need to pay extra to vault past the too-small storage of the entry-level 16GB version

The newest iPhones are top-to-bottom better phones with lots of enhancements; iPhone 6 owners don't need the upgrade, but everyone else should seriously consider it.

Apple iPhone 6s Review

 

The iPhone 6s may not have an original design, but it has a number of features which elevate it above its predecessor, and every other iPhone before it.

As Apple’s ’S’ phones go, the iPhone 6s is the best yet. Indeed, it is the best iPhone to date. the core of the phone is rock solid; processing is fast, the screen is good and the App Store is still overflowing with apps to download. But changes to the...

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus review: the best iPhone ever, by a wide margin

 

“The only thing that's changed is everything,” says the slogan Apple unveiled alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It's an attempt to address the perception that the odd-year ‘s' updates to the iPhone line are minimal and uninteresting.

While I’ve got a few quibbles about the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus – the ungenerous 16GB base configuration, a lack of improvement to battery life, a desire for Live Photos to be a bit higher in quality – these are all quibbles around the edges of a...

Still a good phone

 

I had to get out the iPhone 6 while my 7 was repaired. As my title indicates, it's still a good phone. Fewer bells and whistles, of course, but reliable and easy to use. I would buy another one of these if budget constraints prevented me from getting a...

Good phone

 

I have happy with the iPhone 6S, good features, easy to use. There isn't much storage (my own fault for getting the 16G) but when with deleting a lot of apps, songs, and photos it still says it's nearly full. So I definitely recommend this product but...

good product

 

I have been using iphone for many years, I love the IOS system. it's simple and clear, but it's a little bit inconvenient if you want to export data to your pc. better choose 128GB if you'd like to download many apps or take photos. I think I will...

Great and easy to use phone

Always an Apple user

 

I've been an Apple user for years and needless to say iPhone have and probably will always be the phone I choose to use. I upgraded from 6 to 6s plus with much more memory- 2 very wise steps. With the larger screen I just might be able to live without...
