Apple iPhone 6S Review

A few months ago Apple released the iPhone 6S and if you’re not familiar with the Apple practice you may be confused about this new iPhone as it looks identical to the iPhone 6 but fear not they are not the same. On the inside at least.

There is better hardware, improved camera, stronger case, the new 3D Touch and (at last) 2GB of RAM. Over the years the ‘S’ always brought something new to the plate, the iPhone 4S added Siri and the iPhone 5S had the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

The main addition to the iPhone 6s is definitely the new pressure-sensitive touchscreen technology named the 3D Touch that although right now is quite awesome and will definitely become more interesting when more apps are released for it.

Overall, what Apple has to do is to convince people that the S variant of iPhone 6 is worth the upgrade, even if there are a lot of other smartphones to choose from and unfortunately the iPhone 6S doesn’t seem like a game changer, it only has some subtle upgrades that do have a lot of potential with future updates or installments.

Design

At first glance, the iPhone 6S seems identical to the iPhone 6, it has the same rounded corners and edges, but there are some subtle design changes.

The front of the phone is now stronger, the glass being less likely to shatter if the phone is dropped and lastly, the iPhone 6S is now made of the 7000 series aluminum.

As said before, these changes are subtle and will most likely go unnoticed by most. The volume buttons, the silencer switch and the power key are in the same place as last year and this isn’t a bad thing because the phone is easy to operate with one hand and the buttons are exactly where they should be.

As a side note, the iPhone 6S is compatible with iPhone 6 cases. https://i4you.ru/

Design

The iPhone 6S seems to have the same display as the iPhone 6, featuring a 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1334x750p, 16 million colours and a pixel density of 326ppi.

Although there are far cheaper phones that offer 1080p resolution or even 4K display(which is a serious overkill!), the iPhone 6S still offers a great display experience, being crisp and clear, with deep blacks, bright whites and very accurate colours.

While the resolution stays the same there is one major addition from the last year’s flagship. You are now presented with the 3D Touch which offers a completely new way to interact with the iPhone.

This opens up whole new possibilities. If right now you can only open pop-up windows, trigger quick actions or expand, preview links and messages and there is a lot that can be done in the future.

Performance

The iPhone 6S features better hardware than the iPhone 6, with an Apple A9 Chipset, 1.84GHz dual-core Typhoon CPU, six-core PowerVR GT7600 GPU, 2GB RAM and, still, no card slot.

This translates into smoother multitasking, better handling of graphically-demanding tasks (like playing games), there was no stuttering, no dropped frames and the phone never lagged while we used it.
