iPhone 6S review

 

Same frame but with a brilliant new touchscreen

Great design ; 3D Touch impresses ; Stable OS

Battery life is medicore ; Live Photos are gimmicky ; High price for a low-res screen

Apple's done what we all expected - finely balanced its 'S' phone. 3D Touch is a genuine innovation, and the phone works fluidly at nearly every task - but it's very similar to 2014's model.

Apple iPhone 6S review: A year on, it's still a great phone

 

Things change quickly in the smartphone world and what was once a company's flagship, becomes supposedly second best as it makes way for the latest and greatest.

3D Touch transforms the user experience, better cameras than before, familiar quality design and build, slick experience

Screen resolution still behind the flagship curve, no wireless charging, still an expensive purchase

An iPhone S update year usually means a couple of new features that most people could take or leave, but the iPhone 6S is the most exciting S model for a long time. It bucks the usual trend, delivering a phone that will offer plenty to iPhone users new...

iPhone 6s review: 3D Touch, Live Photos & more

 

We've spent some time with the iPhone 6s to bring you our review, discussing the new 3D Touch features, the Rose Gold model, Live Photos and more.

We're really impressed by the offerings of the iPhone 6s, especially the 3D Touch technology. If it catches on (and we think it will) 3D Touch will completely change how people interact with their iPhones, both in terms of browsing the web and social...

Apple iPhone 6S review

 

Product of the Year, Awards 2015. The best just got better. The iPhone 6S is a superb phone with some neat new tricks up its sleeve

Wonderfully slick in use ; Great with video and audio ; 3D Touch is surprisingly intuitive

Screen resolution behind some rivals ; Not compatible with high-res audio

The best iPhone yet. Slicker than ever

Apple iPhone 6s review

 

Has everything really changed for the iPhone 6s? Stuff's verdict is in

Sweet camera with lovely extra features ; Touch ID is we-can’t-believe-it fast ; All round powerful performance ; 3D Touch is a time-saving delight

3D Touch and Live Photos could both do with broad third-party support ; Battery life hasn’t been improved upon

"Everything's changed" is pushing it, but within the 6s' familiar body lies a surprising amount of innovation

iPhone 6s vs Samsung Galaxy S6 comparison

 

Deciding between the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6? This'll help.

We can't offer our full verdict on the iPhone 6s until we've spent more time with it in the PC Advisor office, but we expect it to impress us. We're pleased to see camera improvements and the innovative new 3D Touch display, but we do wish that screen...

Apple iPhone 6S review

 

The iPhone 6S has unparalleled performance and 3D Touch is amazing, but battery life's a little down on last year

^ In brighter weather, the iPhone 6S produced great pictures

Apple iPhone 6s Review: In Depth

 

Apple iPhone 6s Review: It's autumn and that means two things; the leaves will soon turn gold and fall and it's time to review the new iPhone.

Great cameras ; Stunning screen ; Blazing fast performance ; Best app experience

3D Touch needs to grow ; Only a minor improvement ; Lacklustre battery life ; Expensive

For this generation of iPhone Apple’s tagline is, “The only thing that’s changed is everything.” Based on our experiences with the iPhone 6s this is only really a half-truth and the implications of it aren’t always for the better.
