The iPhone 6s is a solid upgrade for older iPhone owners if you can get one at the right price.
- Good app performance for a phone of its age
- 3D Touch
- Good camera
- Live Photos
- Battery life isn't great
- Relatively low resolution screen
- It's still somewhat premium priced
The iPhone 6s is a solid device, as most iPhones tend to be, but its increasing age means it's only worth considering on a low-cost contract or if you can get one at a bargain price.
- Classic iPhone design.
- Not a lot of display screen for its size.
- A decent single-lens camera, although newer iPhones have much better cameras.
- Solid performance against similarly aged handsets.
- Poor battery life.
- A "classic" iPhone option, but not one you should pay full price for.
