Updated The good news is that, despite the sheer number of options out there, smartphones have become so good that it’s getting harder to pick something you will regret. But at the same time there are so many good options that picking the right one for you can be challenging. TechSpot is here to help.
Part one of this series focused on software. This second part will focus mostly on the iPhone 6s’ hardware, and how it compares to some of the best Android devices I’ve used this year. Apple is widely respected for their hardware design, both on the inside and outside of their phones, but just how good is it in 2015?
With the recent launch of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, I decided to pick up one of Apple’s latest smartphones and use it exclusively for two weeks. What follows are my thoughts on the phone and the ecosystem as primarily an Android user, how the two experiences compare, and whether long-time Android users should contemplate an iOS switch.
Like previous “s” releases, the iPhone 6s Plus is defined by a single feature. This time around, that new feature is 3D Touch, best described as right-click for your iPhone. The new iPhone 6S Plus also features an upgraded 12-megapixel iSight camera with 4K recording and a powerful new A9 processor that's up to 70 percent faster than the A8.
