Apple iPhone 6S Smartphone Review

 

The 3D Midas touch. No disrespect intended for the Apple iPhone 6S, but rather to point out the new control concept 3D Touch, which is one of the most important new features of the current smartphones from Cupertino. Just like every other generation,...

extremely high performance, flawless build quality, high stability, control 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

The predecessor of our current review unit did not get to the top of our Top 10 Smartphone ranking. Together with its bigger sibling, the build quality and materials are once again on a very high level as well. The iPhone 6S also convinces with good...

Apple iPhone 6s (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked Apple iPhone 6s lets you freely switch between all the major U.S. and foreign carriers, with no loss of coverage.

Best coverage and speeds on all four U.S. networks. Fast processor. Excellent cameras. 3D Touch feature shows potential.

Expensive. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions There are relatively few phones that can operate freely on all four U.S. carriers, plus most international carriers. The iPhone 6 series, the iPhone 6s lineup, the Moto X Pure Edition , and Google's Nexus phones are the only...

Apple iPhone 6s (Sprint)

 

The Apple iPhone 6s turbocharges the iPhone experience on Sprint, making it an essential upgrade.

Much faster on Sprint's Spark network than previous iPhones. Good cameras. 3D Touch has potential.

Average battery life.

Conclusions As I've been reviewing the various iPhone 6s carrier models, I've been struck by how the most important part of a smartphone is really the modem. Smartphones exist to keep us connected, and the iPhone 6s keeps us measurably better connected...

Apple iPhone 6s Review

 

From a design point of view the iPhone 6s is pretty much identical to its predecessor the iPhone 6 but there have been a number of improvements under the hood, including in the camera department. Sensor resolution has been upped to 12MP and with the...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus 128GB, space gray

 

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 (AT&T)

 

The Apple iPhone 6s is faster than last year's model all around, including better AT&T LTE speeds.

Faster LTE speeds than iPhone 6. Excellent cameras. Super-fast processor. 3D Touch has lots of potential.

Front-facing camera could be sharper. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions AT&T subscribers have a lot of choices. Along with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus , AT&T supports all the flagship Android phones, and it'll be the only carrier to bring Microsoft's Lumia 950 to market. So why choose...

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Review

 

If you listen to the cynics, the "s" in Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus stands for "same-old". The tick-tock upgrade cycle of the best-selling smartphone has led many to expect revolution one year and then mere evolution the next. Turns out,...

Should you upgrade to the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus if you’re an existing iPhone 6 owner? I certainly missed 3D Touch when I switched back to the older devices, and Live Photos – which can be watched on the previous iPhone, but not captured – are now...

Apple iPhone 6s (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Apple iPhone 6s is one of the fastest phones on Verizon, with improved camera quality and network performance over its predecessor.

Recovers from dead zones faster than iPhone 6. Excellent cameras. Super-fast processor. 3D Touch has lots of potential.

Front-facing camera could be sharper. Average battery life.

Comparisons and Conclusions Our conclusions for the iPhone 6s on T-Mobile still hold for the Verizon model, although a little less emphatically. Despite almost identical looks, the 6s is still a considerable step up from the iPhone 6. It's faster, it...

Apple iPhone 6S review

 

The iPhone 7 is here, and there's very little question that it'll be a better phone than the iPhone 6S. It has:

Compared to iPhone 6, it has improved speed everywhere (new processor, faster wireless, quicker Touch ID sensor); a sturdier body; better front and rear cameras; and a bold new 3D Touch pressure-sensitive display which offers new iOS shortcuts.

It has the same battery life as the iPhone 6. You'll need to buy a larger iPhone 6S Plus or upgrade to an iPhone 7 for better battery life, plus optical image stabilization for photos and video.

The iPhone 7 may be the new hot stuff, but -- particularly with a price drop and a storage upgrade -- the iPhone 6S is still a great deal.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus review: more than just a refresh

 

We spent a week with both of Apple's new flagship phones. Read our thoughts in our full, comprehensive review.

3D Touch is a smart, helpful addition ; First-rate performance ; Touch ID is faster and more accurate ; Great camera helped by optical image stabilization ; Solid battery life

Live Photos are hit-or-miss ; Base model still only has 16GB of storage ; Touch ID can be overly sensitive ; Can be hard to use with one hand

The iPhone 6s Plus has 3D Touch, iOS 9, a pair of improved cameras and the powerful A9 chipset, just like its smaller sibling. A long-lasting battery and optical image stabilization for its 12-megapixel rear camera help give the iPhone 6s Plus a slight...
