Apple iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus: Best and worst features

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) announced the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus during the Sept 9 special event along with the few other products. These new smartphones from the Cupertino are already on the pre-order and will be in stores on 25th of Sept 2015. Let’s take a look at what’s Best and what’s Worst with these two devices.¬†You can pre-order yours here.

One big and most anticipated feature is the 3D Touch, also known as Force Touch on the Apple Watch. It allows the smartphone to be sensitive to the pressure. The device can open up a whole new level of user interaction in the apps and with the shortcuts.


That’s one of the essential features of the iPhone display, other than that; there are no significant changes in the resolution and the DPI.

Camera in the iPhone 6S saw a major upgrade, and now we have one that features a 12MP camera snapping images with a resolution of the 4608 x 2592 pixels. The best part of the camera is the live photos and front facing flash that is generated from the Retina display. A full white illumination on display produces the effects of a flash. Apart from this, we now have a 4K video shooting capabilities in iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

Last year, iPhone users suffered a lot from the Beng-Gate bending due to the presence of weak points near the SIM tray and volume rocker button. Now, the smartphone is little heavier, stronger and a bit thicker with the presence of 3D Touch and reinforced Aluminum 7000 series alloy.

Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus now include a powerful A9 processor and 2GB of RAM, which is a significant upgrade over the last year models. iPhone 6S processor is 70 percent more powerful in the CPU and delivers 90 percent more GPU performance than the A8 chip.

However, the processor is still a dual-core where other manufacturers offer a quad-core and above processors to drive their smartphones. This is something Apple should upgrade in the upcoming line of iPhone, but apparently, even with the dual-core processors, the iPhones are as smooth as any other device, no lags, and not a single glitch while performing tasks or playing games.

Apparently, it all boils down to the optimization.

A bad news, instead of increasing, Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus now even come with a smaller battery to run the device, but Apple claims that it would take you through the day.
