Apple iPhone 6S Plus: Specs

Despite Steve Jobs infamously dismissing large-screen phones before his untimely death, Apple has thrown itself behind the large-screen smartphone market with its Plus versions. The iPhone 6S Plus is nominally just a bigger version of the 2015 flagship iPhone 6S, but looking under the hood you'll discover a few extra features that help make it a superior offering.

At the top of that list is a much bigger battery inside. It still doesn't compare to the likes of the Galaxy Note 7, but the significant boost over its smaller sibling makes it much more appealing.

The other key difference is the inclusion of optical image stabilisation in the camera, a feature that has rolled over from 2014's iPhone 6 Plus, and a higher resolution display.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus: Buy outright

Apple has never been known to be a budget handset manufacturer – even its cheapest phone, the iPhone SE, has a premium pricetag. As the biggest device on Apple's smartphone roster, the iPhone 6S Plus also comes with a hefty asking price.

The fact that a new iPhone 7 (and undoubtedly an iPhone 7 Plus variant as well) is expected to launch in September 2016 isn't reflected in the 6S Plus' price though. As such, if you're thinking about getting an iPhone 6S Plus, it may be worth holding out to see how the price moves after the new models are launched.

Apple iPhone 6S Plus: Review

If you're concerned about the battery life on the iPhone 6S and don't mind a big-screened device, then the 6S Plus can deliver on the iOS promise. It's also the best camera you can get on an iOS device – while the resolution is the same on both the iPhone 6S and iPhone SE, it comes with added optical image stabilisation in the Plus, which helps deliver clearer pictures, especially in low-light environments.

But best of all is the solid performance thanks to the Apple A9 processor

"Apple only upgrades its iPhone lines once a year, and it runs off its own ARM-based processors. The latest generation of the A-series processors, the A9, is a powerful processor that scores well in synthetic benchmarks, but more critically also delivers smooth performance in day to day tasks."

There's a lot to like with the 6S Plus, but be prepared to pay for the experience. Even 11 months into its lifecycle, the iPhone 6S Plus is more expensive than many similar, newer smartphones.
