Iphone 6s 32GB Space Grey

The iPhone 6s was released in 2015 as part of Apple's annual iPhone releases each September

The Phone Itself

It has a 4.7 inch screen, the same size as its predecessor the iPhone 6 & comes in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver & Space Grey. This iPhone introduces the 3D Touch feature which sounds good but it's really just a gimmick. I didn't like using it as it isn't much interest & does harm your battery life a little but there is an option in the settings app to turn 3D Touch off.

Camera

The iPhone 6s has an upgrade from the iPhone 6 with a 12mp rear camera & the familiar 5mp front camera. The quality of the photos are definitely better & more clearer this time round. The iPhone 6s also has a feature called Live Photos where you can take a photo & it will have at the start & end of each photo the slight movement you may have experienced while taking your image. With these Live Photos you can also have audio included if there was any background noise while you were using the camera.

Image

Battery

Battery life is the usual standard for Apple so not much new in the way of improvement here.

The iPhone 6s comes with the A9 chip which is 70% faster than the previous A8 chip. iPhone 6s is pre installed with iOS 9 upgradable to iOS 10. It has all the usual Apple features & iTunes support.

Image

The iPhone 6s is a great phone but really it is just the iPhone 6 again but with a much better upgraded rear camera.

Pro's

Great phone
Better camera
New features

Con's

A newer version of its predecessor

And much cheaper. I think this is actually the way to go with iPhones. If folk could just WAIT and not go for the latest model every time they will get a damn good bargain..

That's the way I play it. Your still getting an iPhone with the same iOS as the latest but cheaper. I paid a tenner upfront for this whereas your looking at stupid upfront costs with the 7
