What’s new about the iPhone 6s Plus? 3D Touch Support.
How much does the iPhone 6s Plus cost? $849 (32GB) $999 (128GB).

The iPhone 6s Plus is large enough to accommodate a battery that beats the iPhone battery curse and powerful enough for those who want a truly premium device.

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.
