Apple has released in the fall of 2015 two flagship devices which are the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, each device was made for two different customer types: those who love smartphones and those who prefer big-sized smartphones (also known as phablets).
The iPhone 6S device measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm and weights 143 grams. On the other hand, the iPhone 6S Plus measures 158.2×77.9×7.3mm and weights 192 grams. Their designs are identical, featuring a sleek aluminum body available in four variants of colors: Space Gray, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold – the latter has been introduced on the latest iPhone model. Also, on the back, you’ll notice two horizontal lines – at the top and bottom, and their role is to hide the radio antennas, on the front side, the familiar round home button is hiding the popular TouchID (fingerprint scanner).
The iPhone 6S sports a LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 4.7-inch that supports a resolution of 1334x750pixels at 326 ppi, the iPhone 6S Plus has a larger LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a higher resolution of 1920x1080pixels at 401ppi.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
When it comes to processors, graphics cards and RAM both devices have the same specifications as follows:
– Apple A9 chipset,
– Dual-core Twister processor clocked at 1.84GHz,
– PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics) graphics card,
– 2GB of RAM.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been released in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, but you should keep in mind that these devices don’t come with a card slot for storage expansion.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus come with a primary camera of 12MP (found on the rear side of the handset) that features dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, smile detection, HDR and a secondary camera of 5MP (found on the front side of the device). The primary camera is able to capture Live Photos, 3-seconds videos which include 1.5 seconds before + 1.5 seconds after taking the shot.
The iPhone 6S features a smaller display size and this is the reason why the device comes with a non-removable battery of only 1715 mAh. On the other hand, the iPhone 6S Plus comes with a more powerful battery of 2750 mAh, but let’s not forget that it has a 5.5-inch display, which will use a lot of juice.
