Features, Performance, and Reviews for the iPhone 6s

The CPU performance of iPhone 6s

The processing power of the iPhone 6s is comparatively low at 1.85GHz×2(Dual core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The iPhone 6s has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

My impression of the overall operation speed of the iPhone 6s is at about the mid- to low-end of smartphones. If you use it normally, you likely won't run into any problems, but at times you will notice what it lacks.

IPhone 6s's storage capacity

The iPhone 6s has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

The iPhone 6s is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

IPhone 6s's size

The iPhone 6s is 26.4 in (67 mm) wide, 54.3 in (138 mm) tall, and 2.8 in (7.1 mm) thick.At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands.In the case of the iPhone 6s, it weighs about 5.0 oz (143 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the iPhone 6s make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

IPhone 6s's screen

The iPhone 6s has a 4.7 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the iPhone 6s is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The camera function of iPhone 6s

The main camera of the iPhone 6s has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The iPhone 6s comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of iPhone 6s

The iPhone 6s's battery capacity is 1715mAh, a standard level for these types of phones.Compared to other smartphones, the iPhone 6s has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of iPhone 6s

The iPhone 6s is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
