Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple iPhone 6s Plus: The big question for the big one. Even more iPhone goodness in a single package or a phone for the fence-sitters? To loosely quote Apple itself, bigger isn’t necessarily better. So, a niche product or the real deal?
The iPhone 6s Plus is a second generation phablet – a breed, which Apple long refused to be associated with. It’s an S-model too meaning last season’s design and changes mostly under the hood.
The push for ease of use has brought about 3D touch – literally adding a sense of depth to your interaction with the smartphone. And the device’s response comes from an all new Taptic engine for unrivaled feedback precision.
It is the former that accounts for the most dramatic changes the 6s Plus brings physically. The hair’s breadth increase in dimensions you won’t notice, but the added weight is immediately felt. And while the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s is still manageable despite the extra heft, the Plus is pushing the boundaries of portability.
Part of the growing up process is the new camera. Apple is finally catching up with the times and now offers 12MP stills, complete with 4K video recording – the iPhone is no longer the favorite target of mockery from supercharged Android flagships. Double the RAM and a new, more powerful A9 chip round up the list of changes that Apple delivered.

Reviewers say: I really think that Apple is the one that copying Samsung now …. putting amazing specs and caring so much about benchmarks without optimizing their software for these hardware (exactly what happened with the Exynos based Note 4 the 910C).I really regret getting the 6S Plus and facing drop frames everywhere in the UI.
