About the Phone
- The screen of iPhone 6s Plus is pressure sensitive, and according to Apple, the latest way of using this 3D Touch feature is to Peek and Pop, wherein you push on the screen to peek at some content on the phone (a photo or a message), and push deeper to pop that content fully.
- With the Live Photos camera setting, you can take photos which when clicked can display a video action 1.5 seconds before or 1.5 seconds after clicking the photo.
- The phone comes with better battery life (2750 mAh non-removable battery as compared to the 1715 mAh non-removable battery of iPhone 6S).
- It comes with a sturdier body made of a specially toughened Ion-X glass displays together with the 7000 Series aluminium – the most durable alloy to be ever used in an iPhone.
- The always-on Siri feature now makes it possible for you to activate Siri faster by just saying “Hey Siri” anytime you’re close to your iPhone 6s Plus.
- Probably the biggest drawback of Apple iPhone 6S Plus is its massive size. While the Apple iPhone 6S had a 4.7-inch display, Apple iPhone 6S Plus boasts of a 5.5-inch display. With a height of 6.23 inches (158.2 mm) and width of 3.07 inches (77.9 mm), it mandates a two-had usage.
- Given its size, some users may feel that the battery provided is insufficient for a phablet of this size. Other phablet-sized phones in the market offer longer battery life, such as Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
If you can chuck the size issue aside, iPhone 6S Plus is a good deal. The large screen is excellent for browsing the Web, watching videos, and playing games. So, if you’re someone who spends a reasonable amount of time doing these, iPhone 6S Plus can be your ultimate entertainment partner.
The sleek and sexy Apple iPhone 6S Plus is the revamped version of its predecessor, Apple iPhone 6S.
