iPhone 6S Plus Still A Great iPhone To Buy : User Review
by Taha El Azezy
The iPhone was the first Mobile Phone with touch Screen I had, and it was the iPhone 4S model, I used it around 5 years and it was a great device for its time, the camera, speaker, screen, software of course, battery life kinda acceptable and capacity as well. iPhone 4S was great overall, so when I decided to change it, I thought about the Android devices, and the HTC one M8 was one of the shiniest devices, I used it just 1 year and I did not like the Android system as an IOS user, Android is good I already know that, but it also has a disadvantage which does not exist in IOS, so when I am done with Android I finally decided to buy the iPhone 6S Plus and still that great device to buy, why ?! that what is coming up!
iPhone 6S came out with the same awesome and great design of the original iPhone 6, metal curved body with sapphire glass screen, volumes buttons on the left side, the power button on the right side, speaker and headphone Jack on the bottom. Lew here from ” unbox therapy ” made a test on the metal body of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6, to show how strong the body is, my iPhone was dropped unintentionally 3 times and got crashed with several hits on the bottom but it’s not a big deal, it’s ok and still working perfectly.
Nowadays the majority of the devices have a high specification specifically the high priced ones, they are almost even in performance, ram and processors, but there is still a difference between all the devices like the quality of the pictures, video recording, speakers and the performance of the operating system….etc. about the iPhone 6s plus, it has a 1920*1080 display and 401 pixel per inch which is good, the colour saturation is perfect, my iPhone runs the latest update which is 10.2.1 and it is so great, no lag the device does not restart by itself, the OS very smooth even during gaming, I have not face any bad problem just one thing, it’s sometimes and with some special games it gets over heat, but this does not make any risk on the device itself, one of my friends complain from the lagging during answer the upcoming phones and the screen stuck, the performance overall is awesome.
The main camera has a 12 megapixel with 2.2 aperture the photos in the light are amazing but in the low light not that amazing it’s kinda acceptable, the iPhone can record video in 4K yea that’s really really awesome, because I used its 4K recording and this video was shot in 4K by me, you can judge and leave your comment, the camera also can record at 60 frames per second with 1080p which is amazing by the way.
the front facing camera has a 5 megapixel with 2.2 aperture and can record till 1080p with 30 frames per second, its photos acceptable and good, nothing special about it.
Ahh the battery life, the majority of us! no i think all of us 😀 suffering from the low of capacity of the battery, and we all hope to have an infinity battery life, the iPhone has an acceptable battery, if you are using WIFI, it will stand all day, but when you turn on the 3G it won’t and more with 4G, with 4G your battery may die in 5-6 hours, that what I do not like about the battery besides this, the charging it’s bad, my iPhone takes 2 hours and 40-45 minutes to be completely charged, which is not good at all, the best way to use your iPhone with 3G or 4G and enjoy with a good battery is to turn it on and do what you want, then turn it back off and so on, that is in case if you do not have a power bank.
The design, operating system, camera, 3D-touch, live photos, 4K recording because I used it instead of Nikon D3300 and it was amazing, if you have not seen the video that I recorded you can scroll up in the ” Main Camera ” part and watch it, fingerprint got upgraded and now faster
- Storage, I think the most common problem for all of us as an iPhone users the 16GB version, with the new apps, the size of photos and video we take, on top of that we do not use the entire 16GB, we have just 11.6 GB because of operating system
- SD-Card Slot, majority of users have a big data, so they need an SD-card slots, and that’s why some users go to Android and the others owns two devices an Android and IOS, we used to buy the iPhone without SD-Card slots, but there is always an option this is a Flash memory for iPhone and iPad with lightning socket. it does not cost too much money but instead to put a couple of hundred dollars in an additional capacity.
- iPhone is feeling good in the hand, but some people want to save their phone from being dropped unintentionally and gets hit, i am one of them, so it made us put a cover on, even though, I want to enjoy it without cover.
This is a great device to buy in these days and will be to the next 3 years, so you will not regret of buying it, but you have to bear in mind when you buy this device you have to choose the 64GB or 128GB if you’re going to buy from a user, in case if you’re going to buy from an Apple store you will see 2 versions 32GB and 128GB, which means Apple stopped produce the 16GB with the new iPhone 7 , I have the iPhone 6s plus for 13 months and I am still happy with it, I thought about iPhone 7 plus, but it’s not a big deal to upgrade now, from my point of view the iPhone 7 Plus is not that great device to upgrade from 6s plus, iPhone 7 plus has a loud speaker, dual lens, better screen with 50% more than the iPhone 6s plus, unclickable home button and the ‘ CPU ‘ got upgraded not a big deal as well, overall whether you have this device or you are going to buy it, you won’t regret for the next 3-4 years
OVERALL RATING: 8/10
for those who may ask why 8\10, is because of the battery life, the speaker is not that good, the screen still 1k which means 1080p and the IOS, the IOS is not that great it has not some features which exist in Android I will talk about it in detail later.
