iPhone 6s Review by Shweta Murali
The iPhone 6s is Apple’s newest phone and was released on September 9, 2015. The sales were huge, with more than 13 million sold in just the opening weekend. With only a few days of experience with the device, I have observed both good and bad aspects of it. If you are considering buying an iPhone 6s, hopefully this will help you in your decision.
Here are the pros:
· Like always, a brilliant touchscreen that responds immediately
· With the 64-bit A9 chip, the phone never lags or freezes and works surprisingly quick.
· iOS 9 is a great improvement, with suggested apps and a new Search feature, as well as an improved App Store, a built-in News app, improvements to the Notes app, public transportation facilities in Maps, Apple Pay, and iCloud Drive.
· 3D Touch is the first of its kind, bringing a whole new innovation into the mobile world. Basically, the sensor detects the level of pressure applied to a touchscreen and responds by performing a certain action. It certainly impressed me with its immediate response and incredible knowledge.
· An incredible, 12-megapixel iSight camera, which means you don’t even have to haul around your bulky digital camera around anymore.
· The camera also includes 1080p video recording and a 5-megapixel FaceTime camera, which beats Skype by a longshot.
· Along with the space gray, gold, and silver colors that previously existed, a beautiful new rose gold color joins the spectrum, which I personally believe looks awesome.
· With improved and more secure Touch ID, you can feel safe knowing that no one else is snooping around on your phone.
· This phone supports more LTE networks than any other smartphone, which means that you can have fast internet- even without WiFi!
· The screen is supposedly shatterproof, which is a huge relief for my fellow klutzes out there.
· Last but not certainly least, you can tell people that you got an iPhone 6s! How cool is that?
Although it may seem like it, the phone isn’t perfect, and here are the flaws:
· Like all Apple devices, it is on the pricey side, with the device being $649 and the iPhone 6s Plus $749.
· We thought that Apple would make an improvement to the battery life, but the battery life is still incredibly low compared to other smartphones.
· The resolution of the screen is fair-1080p-but doesn’t nearly compare to the high quality of the Samsung Galaxy S6.
· When playing games with a lot of graphics, there is a noticeable lag.
· The phone’s screen is big, measuring 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches for the plus. Especially with people transitioning from an older phone such as the 5 or 5s, they could find it difficult to use at first. However, I like the big screen so I consider this a pro, but I know many people aren’t particularly fond of the large size.
Overall. these are the main positive and negative features of the iPhone 6s, and I personally love the phone and its efficiency. You can take a look at this list and weigh out the pros and cons of this phone. However, everyone has their own individual taste, so know that you are sure before you buy a new phone. No matter what phone you get, just be happy with it!
