Apple iPhone 6S Plus Smartphone Review

 

Bigger and better. Sounds disrespectful, but it is just a pun. The latest Apple iPhone 6S Plus is all about the touch as part of the new handling concept called 3D Touch. The latest S model is obviously faster, and you also get better cameras as well...

extremely high performance, flawless build quality, high stability, operating concept with a real additional value, convenient display, fast communication modules, excellent GPS module, decent battery runtimes, good cameras with nice features

iOS 9 still a bit buggy, NFC not usable for third-party apps, internal storage cannot be expanded, mediocre low-light camera performance, very high price

It was already indicated in the preview: The new Apple iPhone 6S Plus will noticeably raise the bar in respect of the processor and graphics performance. This assumption was confirmed in our in-depth review. The Apple A9 chip is currently the benchmark...

The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Review

 

To be perfectly honest, this past year has been remarkably boring in the mobile segment. For whatever reason, phones have either stood still or regressed when it comes to overall quality. There are a few stand-outs that have been worth talking about...

Overall, after spending all this time with the iPhone 6s I can’t find anything really wrong with this phone. On the contrary, the A9 SoC is a huge jump in performance even relative to other SoCs on the same process node to give impressive application...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus (Sprint)

 

The iPhone 6s Plus for Sprint can tap into LTE speeds that previous iPhones could only dream of.

Much faster speeds on Sprint than previous iPhones. Excellent camera, especially for video. 3D Touch has potential.

Expensive. Battery life slightly less than previous generation.

But price isn't about to sway most iPhone buyers, who are looking at the 6s Plus because of Apple's superior app ecosystem, proprietary services, and support network. If that describes you, the most important fact is that yes, this is a considerably...

iPhone 6S Plus review

 

I don't usually like really big phones. I want phones that can fit in my hand. But last year I switched from an iPhone 6 to 6 Plus , to see what difference it made it my life. Its advantages turned out to be really useful : a bigger battery, a larger...

Improved speed, better cameras, always-on Siri, and pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display compared to last year's 6 Plus. And it has slightly better battery life, a bigger higher resolution screen, and optical image stabilization for photos and video...

It's really big. It costs more than the smaller iPhone. Other phablet-sized phones offer longer battery life.

The iPhone 6S Plus has a few key advantages that give it an edge for serious iPhone users, but its big body still may not fit for a lot of people.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus 16GB, space gray

 

I missed the surer, clearer pictures in low light that the Plus gave in a pinch in darkened press rooms during live events. (For better or worse, that's the sort of place where I need good smartphone photography in a pinch.)

Improved speed, better cameras, always-on Siri, and pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display compared to last year's 6 Plus. And it has slightly better battery life, a bigger higher resolution screen, and optical image stabilization for photos and video...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus (T-Mobile)

 

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus brings better LTE coverage for T-Mobile, making it absolutely worth the upgrade.

Much better LTE reception than iPhone 6 Plus. Excellent optical video stabilization. Big screen is ideal for gaming and video playback.

Expensive. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions Because of the better coverage Band 12 brings to the table, you shouldn't consider any lesser iPhone on this carrier. Whether you prefer the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus just comes down to which one better fits into your...

Review: Apple iPhone 6s Plus

 

Everything that feels obvious now, once didn't. This goes double for smartphones: All the pinch-to-zoom, touch-friendly interactions we now take for granted and marvel at a two-year-old's ability to figure it out, didn't always seem so natural. In...

Everything great about the iPhone is even greater here, because big screens rule. 4K video looks incredible. 3D Touch is going to be transformative. #rosegold, y'all

16GB is not enough storage. Battery life is fine, but only that. Touch ID kind of ruins the lockscreen

But this makes your buying decision right now very easy. Do you want or need a new iPhone? Great, buy this one. It’s awesome. You’ll love it. Buy whatever size makes you happy (hint: the big one). But if you don’t? That’s fine too. Because there are...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus (Verizon Wireless)

 

Thanks to its big, beautiful screen, fast performance, and excellent optical image stabilization for video capture, the Apple iPhone 6s Plus is the ultimate phablet on Verizon.

Excellent optical video stabilization. Big screen is ideal for gaming and video playback. Improved network performance over iPhone 6 Plus.

Expensive. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions In terms of which iPhone you should choose, I think the size differences between the 6s and the 6s Plus outweighs the minor feature differences. Buy the size that feels most comfortable. The 6s Plus's better modem and...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus (AT&T)

 

Even with just modest improvements over its predecessor, the powerful, capable iPhone 6s Plus still reigns supreme.

Excellent optical image stabilization. Big screen is ideal for gaming and video. Band 30 speeds up AT&T LTE.

Expensive. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions The competition is much stiffer for the iPhone 6s Plus than for the smaller iPhone 6s. That's because aside from the Galaxy S6, Android phone makers deliver their best products in sizes L, XL, and XXL, neglecting all of us...
