The iPhone 6S Plus promises richer interactions with a pressure sensitive screen, a better camera with new “Live Photos” and longer battery life, despite it is having a smaller capacity battery. Does it deliver? Let’s look at it. and yeah, this is Praveen and you are watching TechEmpty. So, lets get started. Side-by-side it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between 2014’s iPhone 6 Plus and the new iPhone 6S Plus. There’s a small “S” stamped on the back, the device is 0.2mm thicker and 20g heavier, but everything else on the outside looks the same. Starting with the design, it features 5.5inch 1080p screen, despite being pressure sensitive, looks identical to the iPhone 6 Plus. The LCD display is colour accurate, but not quite as vibrant as some AMOLED rivals. It has a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch making it similar in sharpness to phablets such as the OnePlus 2. To the bottom we have speakers, charging port and a 3.5mm headphone jack, to one side we have the toggle switch and volume rockers, we have nothing to the top, on the other side we have power button and a slot to insert the NanoSIM card.To the front we have 5mp front facing camera, ear piece and to the bottom we have Home button with Touch ID. 12mp rear camera sits on the back with dual tone flash. Coming to the hardware part, the iPhone 6S Plus has Apple’s new dual-core A9 processor with an integrated motion co-processor and 2GB of RAM. Apple says that it is 70% faster than the A8 in last year’s iPhones. It comes with 2750mAh battery that lasts about a day of continuous moderate usage. Apple’s new pressure sensitive screen is the marquee feature for the iPhone 6S Plus.It allows more gestures based on how hard you press the screen. Icons on the homescreen can also be 3D touched to pop up a quick action menu. Mostly this means actions such as start a new message, search or view the last action. Tapping then takes you straight to the particular window. As I have seen that only few apps are supporting this 3D Touch feature and it might become a killer feature if more apps supports the same. You can preview the messages, emails, Photos with a new feature called Peek and Pop. Let me peek on a picture and it will show the preview of the picture.If you decide to view it full, force touch on the same to pop that out. The iPhone 6S Plus has a new Touch ID sensor, which is much faster than that on the iPhone 6 or 5S,
unlocking the phone almost immediately. It’s one of the fastest and best fingerprint scanners in the market. The new 12-megapixel camera is excellent. It captures images with good detail and colour balance in good light, often resulting in slightly more natural. Low light performance is also good, but neither are a vast improvement over the iPhone 6 Plus. Video capture is good and the camera can record in 4K taking up around 300MB per minute, roughly three times the space required for 1080p video.The switch to enable 4K video is buried in the settings menu. So check it before trying to record in 4K. The front-facing camera has been boosted to five megapixels from 1.2MP, but the photos are still not exactly fantastic. They will do fine for small shots, but are not a patch on those captured by the rear camera. The flash screen feature works OK for close-ups, but forget anything at arm length or further away. Apple’s Live Photos are new for the iPhone 6S Plus. They capture 1. 5 seconds of video before and after taking a photo. They take up twice the storage on the phone and are difficult to share or upload beyond Apple’s walled garden. You can view the live photos by applying some pressure on the picture screen. If you really want to try out the new features like 3D Touch, Live Photos, 4K video then Yes, do upgrade. But if you already have iPhone 6 Plus and don’t want the new features then think once again.It’s a great device if you’re looking to replace your handheld gaming console, video camera, tablet and smartphone with a single unit, and in that sense, it’s a more attractive product. However, you don’t always want to carry all those things around, and the iPhone 6S Plus will make you feel as though you’re doing exactly that. That’s it.
