Apple iPhone 6s Review

128 GB     See other variants reviews Score: 83 / 100

Apple iPhone 6s is an impressive iOS cellphone launched in September 2015, counting with a 4.7-inches multi touch screen, a high-tech 64 bits Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1840 megahertz, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front facing camera. Let's take a better look at what this cellphone offers to us.

Apple decided to equip this cellphone with an extremely fast 1.84 gigahertz Dual-Core 64 bits processing unit, included in an Apple A9 APL0898 system chip with a huge 2 GB RAM memory. Graphic calculations usually eats lots of processor time, so it also counts with a 650 megahertz PowerVR GT7600 graphics processing unit to take care of them, leaving the processor free for other tasks. An excellent aspect of this cellphone is its large 128 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't have an SD extension slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone body design combines Aluminium, Steel and Glass, giving this cellphone a quality look and a better resistance. This cellphone isn't very light for a phone of this size, weighting 5.04 oz. This device is thin and stilized, being just 0.28" thick. While this phone is only 5.44" long, it is still able to fit a a 4.7 inches display. The iPhone 6s is sold in three different color options, gray, pink and gold.

Apple designed the iPhone 6s with a spectacular 4.7 inches display, and a resolution of 1334 x 750 , providing this cellphone with a unique graphical experience. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a great 500 candela/m2 brightness and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The iPhone 6s offers wifi capability (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) ultra fast connectivity and fast 3G data connection, over HSPA, HSUPA, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. The Apple iPhone 6s uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it can connect using both GSM and CDMA.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and a 5 MP front camera. Its back camera has a F2.2 aperture so it can shoot very nice photos even in low-light conditions. The Apple iPhone 6s also captures videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 240 fps. This phone also counts with a large number of interesting characteristics: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, geo tagging and time lapse video.

This phone also features plenty of useful characteristics like Fingerprint unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This device has a good 1715 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery providing this cellphone with a not very long battery life. This phone has an estimated 240 hs stand by time and a 14 hours talk time according to Apple. An important issue to take into account is that this device's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, having to change the whole phone or hopefully take it to an expert who can open it and change its battery.

Apple sells this device for 575 dollars, which is quite a high price for this type of cellphone. No matter whether you you love taking pictures, will use it as a gaming cellphone, will use it as a work cellphone or want this phone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, you will probably be very pleased with this device.
