Apple iPhone 6s Plus
If you’re shopping for a new mobile phone, whether you’re a long time smartphone user or on the hunt for your very first handset, we’re betting that you’ve found yourself overwhelmed with choice from various manufacturers. We’d also go as far as betting that you’ve been constantly asked by sales advisors if you’d considered going for one of the new iPhones.
iPhones really are great mobile phones, but you don’t have to go for one of the more expensive newer models to get a good smartphone experience, particularly if you’re trying to stick to a budget.
While the iPhone 6S Plus was released over two years ago, it is still a fantastic smartphone with some impressive features. Not only that, but you can often find amazing iPhone 6S deals thanks to the release of subsequent handsets, meaning that you get the Apple name, with some massive savings.
Here at Metrofone we still consider the iPhone 6S Plus to be a fantastic option for anyone who is looking for a high-end smartphone with a low-end price, and it definitely shouldn’t be overlooked because of its age.
iPhone 6S Plus Design & Display
The iPhone 6S Plus is essentially a bigger version of the iPhone 6S; it has also the beauty and great design, just on a larger scale. The body is 158.2mm tall and it is slightly thicker than the iPhone 6S, at 7.3mm. This increases in size also mean that it is heavier than the smaller model, but even at 192g, it's lighter than many other phablet-style smartphones, and we don’t think that it feels particularly bulky when you’re out and about.
One thing that may sway you if you’re undecided between the 6S and the Plus, is that the larger handset is extremely difficult to use with one hand. We don’t mind this too much as viewing content is so easy, but if this is going to be an annoyance, then we would certainly recommend going for the smaller model.
The iPhone 6S Plus is just as durable as its smaller sibling. With ion-strengthened glass and oleophobic coating. However, we at Metrofone know all too well the heartbreak of smashing your screen after a particularly bad drop, so we always highly recommend investing in a good quality protective case and a tempered glass screen protector.
As well as durability, the iPhone 6S Plus comes in four stunning colourways, so there is a handset to suit anyone and everyone, whatever their style. You can choose from space grey, silver and gold as usual, but there’s also the addition of a rose gold handset for anyone who fancies something a little different. Whatever colour you choose, you’re guaranteed a handset that looks premium and classic.
One difference in the design of the iPhone 6S Plus and the 6S is the screen. The Plus comes with a significantly larger 5.5inch screen, featuring a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio.
The higher resolution is much appreciated, particularly when you consider the size difference between the two handsets. The display is well balanced yet rich, meaning that colours come across vibrant where necessary, and natural in the right places. Shadows and highlights are also dealt with very well, giving the 6S Plus a great viewing experience all round.
iPhone 6S Plus Audio
Apple has consistently been praised for their audio quality on pretty much every iPhone release, and the iPhone 6S Plus is no exception.
As is always the case with iPhone, there’s no support for hi-res music, but that doesn’t mean that the 6S Plus falls short when it comes to audio quality; the audio experience on the iPhone 6S Plus is well balanced, rich and dynamic.
If you’re somewhat of a traditionalist then you’ll appreciate that the iPhone 6S Plus still retains the classic headphone jack, a feature that is controversially missing on some of the newer iPhone models. This means that listening to your favourite tracks is as easy as plugging in your headphones, and you don’t need to worry about investing in any Bluetooth headphones.
iPhone 6S Plus Camera
The camera setup on the iPhone 6S Plus is essentially the same as what you’ll find on the smaller 6S, which some may find a little disappointing. It features a 12MP sensor on the rear of the handset, which is a significant upgrade from the 6 Plus, and you’ll find that photographs are delivered with much brighter colours and sharper details.
One difference between the Plus and the 6S is that it comes with optical image stabilisation, only furthering the improved quality of your shots.
The upgrade doesn’t stop with the rear camera though, there are also big improvements with a jump from 1.2MP to 5MP on the front shooters, so if you’re a fan of the odd selfie here and there, then it's definitely worth choosing a 6S handset over the older iPhone.
iPhone 6S Plus Features & Performance
If you’re a long time Apple fan then you’ll already be familiar with Apple’s very own AI personal assistant, Siri, which is a key feature on the iPhone 6S Plus. While many other smartphone manufacturers have now followed suit with their own assistants, we feel that Siri really is the best of the bunch.
If you’re concerned about storing all of your favourite apps, files and photos on your iPhone 6S Plus, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can choose from either 16GB, 64GB or 128GB, so there’s no shortage of space depending on your specific needs.
The 6S Plus, like all other iPhones before and after, runs on Apple’s very own chip built in-house by their genius developers. The 6S Plus comes with the A9 chip, which provides a smooth and responsive smartphone experience. If you’re used to iPhones then you’ll be familiar with the classic interface, which is extremely easy to use and customisable to suit any user.
It's always a given that the Plus models of iPhones always have a bigger battery cell, so if you’re constantly attached to your phone, then it will be worth your while considering the 6S Plus over a smaller model.
There are certainly newer iPhone handsets available these days, but the iPhone 6S Plus is still a credible choice, particularly if you’re looking to get your hands on an iPhone but don’t to pay the higher price.
The 6S Plus features the classic iPhone design that we’re used to seeing, with minimal features and soft curves for a premium look.
The larger screen comes with a better resolution than the smaller 6S, delivering a truly fantastic viewing experience. When you add in the impressive audio quality, viewing content and listening to music on your 6S Plus is a pleasure.
The camera set up is exactly the same as the 6S, with the added bonus of optical image stabilisation, for seriously improved photographs.
The A9 chip delivers a really smooth smartphone experience that won’t have you waiting around, and the battery is significantly better than the smaller handsets.
