iPhone 6S Plus review

 

Just as big, but a little better

3D Touch has exciting potential ; Bright, vibrant display ; Fuss-free camera

Big and heavy ; Expensive ; Minor software flaws

Apple has reinvigorated its phablet without rewriting the playbook thanks to its smart 3D Touch technology and a more power under the hood. It's not the upgrade some will have been hoping for, but it's the upgrade we've got.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus review: Is bigger better? - Pocket-lint

 

Just like the original, the iPhone 6S Plus is the big-scale Apple phone for the kind of user who uses two hands and isn't bothered about the weight or

Big screen size, great battery life, improved camera with optical stabilisation, slick operation from 3D Touch

It's big and heavy which simply won't be suitable for everyone, screen resolution behind the flagship curve

Just like the original, the Apple iPhone 6S Plus is the big-scale Apple phone for the kind of user who uses two hands and isn't bothered about the weight or space needed to fit one into their pocket.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus review

 

One of the best performing smartphones we've seen in 2015...

Stunning screen, premium build Crisp, punchy and insightful picture Class-leading sound quality Smooth and intuitive interface Great camera

No hi-res audio support Expensive

That price tag aside, the iPhone 6S Plus has impressed us. It’s a better smartphone by Apple’s own standards as well, with excellent sound quality finally getting the fifth star that eluded last year’s model. It won’t be the device to win over...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus review

 

Is the 6s Plus any more than just a scaled up 6s? Well this time round it might just be...

Big bold screen to show off your pictures ; OIS is a much appreciated newly added boon for shooting 4K video ; 3D Touch is the future of smartphone navigation

A little too much phone to handle for smaller hands ; Apple can afford to pack a few more pixels into all that screen real estate in light of 4K

The iPhone 6s Plus provides an expansive immersive experience thanks to its giant screen - but that’s only if you can handle it

iPhone 6S vs iPhone 6S Plus comparison preview

 

We explain how the new iPhones compare to help you decide

As with the previous generation, you'll want to buy the iPhone 6S Plus over the regular model if you want a larger screen and optical image stabilisation - if you don't mind paying extra for it and don't mind a bulkier, heavier phone.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus review

 

The iPhone 6S Plus is incredibly fast, adds the brilliant 3D touch and a top-notch camera – it's a superb high-end phone

The other big change is MailDrop support. Already a part of OS X, MailDrop uses your iCloud storage to send big files via email: the recipient gets a download link. Now, this feature may not seem that useful on an iPhone, but it means that you can...
