How is the iPhone 6S different from the iPhone 6S Plus? Let’s lay this one out, nice & clear.

WATCH: What’s new in iOS 9?

iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Design

iPhone 6S Plus: 7.3milimet thiông xã, 192g, series 7000 anodised aluminium baông xã, Space Grey/Silver/Gold/Rose GoldiPhone 6S: 7.1milimet thichồng, 143g, series 7000 anodised aluminium baông chồng, Space Grey/Silver/Gold/Rose Gold

Both the iPhone 6S Plus & the iPhone 6S look nigh-on identical to their immediate predecessors, which means that they also look very similar to one another – with one notable difference.

The obvious thing, which most of you may already know, is kích thước. Just like the last generation, the iPhone 6S has a 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 6S Plus has a larger 5.5-inch one.

It’s a separation fairly similar khổng lồ that of the Galaxy S6 & its bigger brothers, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or cảnh báo 5. However, the iPhone 6S Plus is actually pretty big even for a phone of its screen size.

Some of you may find its 77.9mm width a bit too much khổng lồ handle. It’s even wider than the 5.7-inch lưu ý 5, for example. That said, whenever we over up thinking a phone is too big we usually just sink into lớn how it rolls after a few days.

The two phones might look similar lớn their predecessors, but they’ve sầu actually been built in a fundamentally different way thanks khổng lồ last year’s internet hoo-hah. The iPhone 6 Plus became a bit infamous because of the whole bendgate scandal, the clayên it had a tendency khổng lồ bover just from the pressures of your pocket.

Apple has addressed this by upgrading the body from some form of (unnamed) bog standard aluminium alloy khổng lồ 7000-series aluminium, a formulation used in all manner of high-end aluminium constructions including the Apple Watch Thể Thao. Both the iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus use this alloy style, but it’s one lớn bear in mind if you were put off by all those reports of bendy Plus phones earlier this year.

Bendgate is gone.

iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Screen

iPhone 6S Plus: 5.5-inch, 19đôi mươi x 1080, 401 ppi, 3D TouchiPhone 6S: 4.7-inch, 1334 x 750 IPS LCD, 326 ppi, 3D Touch

The other big thing to consider is, of course, the screen itself. Living with a 4.7-inch phone and a 5.5-inch one is a totally different prospect.

It’s doubly important if you’re moving from a recent Android phone, whose display may well be bigger than 4.7 inches across. The larger screen is much better for watching video, for playing games & even for browsing. There are some pretty great pay-offs for that extra aluminium bulk in your pocket.

The question is: how much digital stuff vì chưng you consume on your phone? If you’re a big bạn or watch Netflix on your phone all the time, the iPhone 6S Plus will be the much better entertainment buddy.

Size is the main difference here, as both screens otherwise offer excellent image chất lượng. Colour, contrast and sharpness are all great, able khổng lồ go head-to-head with Android phones that have a clear spec benefit. You see, the iPhone 6S’s 1334 x 750 px screen is only a bit above 720p resolution & the iPhone 6S Plus is 1080p when several Android phones have moved up lớn QHD at this point.

Both phones have sầu Apple’s new 3D Touch system stashed under those toughened Ion-X displays, too.

What’s 3D Touch? This is Apple’s iPhone take on a pressure sensitive screen, letting you access handy little shortcuts & pReviews throughout iOS 9 by pressing more, or less, hard.

You can pĐánh Giá emails and website liên kết, jump straight lớn key functions from phầm mềm icons, and more. It still needs third party developers khổng lồ update their apps (which they’re beginning khổng lồ do) before it’s a real hit, but the potential is vast.

3D Touch is the reason why both the iPhone 6S Plus and the iPhone 6S are thicker and heavier than their predecessors, but it’s a worthwhile trade-off all-round.

iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Performance

iPhone 6S Plus: Apple A9 64-bit dual-core 1.84GHz, PowerVR GT7600 GPU, 2GB RAMiPhone 6S: Apple A9 64-bit dual-core 1.84GHz, PowerVR GT7600 GPU, 2GB RAM

In terms of performance, the two phones are almost identical. Both utilise Apple’s new 64-bit A9 CPU, which boasts a faster clochồng tốc độ than previous models and a significantly faster GPU.

In fact, the A9 CPU manages a 70 percent boost over last year’s A8, while the PowerVR GT7600 GPU provides a 90 percent graphical boost.

Perhaps the most significant improvement in performance for both phones, however, is the doubling up of the RAM allotment khổng lồ 2GB.

Web pages và apps are now kept in stasis for much longer, which means that they’re ready and waiting when you jump to lớn them in the new-look multitasking menu – not loading up afresh as they would be with last year’s models.

You might have sầu noticed that we said performance was almost the same. Well spotted. There’s actually a slight different in the iPhone 6S’s favour, simply thanks lớn its lower resolution display.

Fewer pixels to push means less CPU và GPU grunt required, but the difference is negligible bordering on non-existent in day to day usage.

iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Camera

iPhone 6S Plus: 12-megapx, phase detection, OIS, dual LED ‘True Tone’ flash, 4K video clip, 1.2-megapx front cameraiPhone 6S: 12-megapx, phase detection, dual LED ‘True Tone’ flash, 4K Clip, 1.2-megapx front camera

Again, the camera công nghệ used in both of these phones is very similar indeed. Both have sầu been bumped up from 8-megapx khổng lồ 12-megapixel, which means that images are even more detail-packed. Apple has also reduced colour leak between pixels, resulting in cleaner images.

Video recording also gets a detail bump up khổng lồ 4K, which brings Apple’s flagship range up lớn the cấp độ of their Android rivals.

The one point of difference here is OIS, which stands for optical image stabilisation. The iPhone 6S Plus has it, while the iPhone 6S doesn’t.

In terms of general, well-lit photos, the difference made by this component is negligible. When it comes to low-light shots và video recording, however, you’ll notice that the iPhone 6S Plus is better.

OIS nullifies the effects of camera shake, which has benefits for đoạn phim. It also allows for night-time and low-light exposure times to be a little longer, thus resulting in brighter shots.

iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Battery

iPhone 6S Plus: 2750 mAh non-removable batteryiPhone 6S: 1715 mAh non-removable battery

Interestingly, both phones’ batteries are smaller than their predecessors. This is because of the new Taptic Engine that Apple squeezed in lớn help communicate the new Touch 3D interface elements.

However, the more efficient A9 CPU and Apple’s iOS 9 optimisations mean that battery life hasn’t suffered lớn any meaningful degree.

The iPhone 6S will still comfortably last you through a full day of moderate usage, while the iPhone 6S Plus can stretch khổng lồ two days. The bigger phone is by far the better bet if you frequently find recharging opportunities hard khổng lồ come by.

Both phones have sầu a handy new Low nguồn mode to lớn help eke out battery life in extreme situations, too.


iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 6S: Storage

iPhone 6S Plus: 16GB / 64GB / 128GB internal storage, non-expandableiPhone 6S: 16GB / 64GB / 128GB internal storage, non-expandable

The storage options on these two iPhones are identical, & the 64GB & 128GB options are both plenty generous enough, we feel.

More concerning is the continued presence of a 16GB entry Mã Sản Phẩm for both. This simply isn’t enough for a modern non-expandable high-over điện thoại thông minh, especially considering that both phones now take considerably larger photos and videos than before.

Why does Apple persist with the blatantly insufficient 16GB model? It’s likely a somewhat cynical financial calculation, encouraging customers to lớn upgrade lớn the more expensive sầu mid-tier.

Regardless of the reason, Apple really needs to switch lớn a 32GB minimum for the iPhone 7 và iPhone 7 Plus.


Apple has turned out two more high class smartphones in the iPhone 6S Plus & iPhone 6S.

Both phones are significant upgrades on last year’s models, despite their similar looks. However, our recommendations on which of the two your should choose are the same as before.

The iPhone 6S Plus is materially the better phone of the two, with a superior camera, a much bigger và sharper screen, and significantly better battery life. If performance is everything khổng lồ you, there’s only one winner.

Of course, the iPhone 6S has one notable advantage: its practicality. It’s much more pleasant to wield and lug around, và you can still use it with one h& – something that’s just not possible with the iPhone 6S Plus.

The iPhone 6S is arguably far truer to lớn the iPhone’s compact lineage than the iPhone 6S Plus, which (in addition to lớn its cheaper price) will likely continue to lớn make it the more popular choice.
