    Apple iPhone 6S: Specs

    The one key advantage Apple has over its competitors is its ability to design hardware capable of delivering the best experience for its iOS operating system. This often ends up meaning that Apple hardware doesn't look as groundbreaking as its Android competitors. This is most evident in the included battery capacity of the iPhone 6S (although the large-screen iPhone 6S Plus does address this issue somewhat).

    It also means that some of the more marketable functions of the iPhone – like the Force Touch display, for example – don't actually come up in a pure specs listing.

    Regardless of these issues, the iPhone 6S does a good job in day-to-day use performance wise, though battery life is a long way from the most recent Samsung Galaxy devices. With the iPhone 7's announcement expected within a matter of weeks, that difference is likely to be reduced in the not too distant future.

    Apple iPhone 6S: Buy outright

    Having an Apple logo on your phone can be a blessing and a curse, in the fact that Apple's iPhones tend to hold their resale value much better than other phones, so you can sell a used phone for a decent return. It also means that there isn't a huge amount of price movement on new devices, even 11 months into an annual refresh cycle.

    That said, there are deals to be had, if you look around, though this late in the game you would be better placed waiting for the iPhone 7 to be announced and take advantage of any knock on price cuts to older models.

    Apple iPhone 6S: Review

    The iPhone 6S may not have wowed us with a revolutionary specs sheet, but the solid influx of new features like the Force Touch screen, Live photos and faster Apple Pay support make it a very worthwhile option.

    "The other big new feature Apple touts for the iPhone 6s and larger iPhone 6s Plus is the live photos feature. It’s rather like the living images in Harry Potter, in that it captures a few seconds of video around when you take a photo. A 3D Touch press activates the photo, bringing it to life. As a party trick, it’s quite neat."

    The biggest issue with the iPhone 6S is the uninspiring battery life, especially for power users who use their phone for everything. There is a low power mode in iOS 9, but it's a poor consolation when you look at how low the battery capacity actually is.
