The good

  • Solid battery life
  • Good performance
  • Good iOS camera
  • 3D Touch expands your interaction options
  • Live Photos

The bad

  • It's a large phone
  • It's not a huge jump from the iPhone 6 Plus
  • It's premium priced


It's quite dated now, but the iPhone 6S is still a viable option for anyone looking for an affordable Apple iPhone, though its performance can't compare with the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

Design

  • Classic iPhone design.
  • Bezel-heavy and not particularly high resolution either.

Camera

  • A good camera eclipsed by later iPhone models.

Performance

  • Good performance for a phone of its age.

Battery life

  • Acceptable battery life to get through a single day's usage.

Verdict

  • A "classic" iPhone option, if you're keen on that.
  • Few contract options means you may be better off with a newer iPhone.
