Apple iPhone 6s review: The more it changes…

1 October, 2015
It’s how the saying goes. And you know, it’s not about Apple and the iPhone at all. It’s where the industry has been heading for a while now. In the race for screen size and processing power, the major makers’ flagships are like pro athletes finishing within milliseconds of each other...

I was actually rooting for the 6s too, but comes out a bit disappointed tbh.

It doesn't matter whether its a Ferrari or a seventh hand Maruti if you are confined to drive it within your garage.

Yeah I want a clearer screen,a larger screen in a smaller/lighter body,a battery that charges twice as fast lasts just as long, and able to just throw it on a mat and forget about it. I'll admit apple is a smooth experience and Android has lag and hiccups, but I ask a hell of a lot more out of my phone then the average iPhone user does and I get a lot more out of an android

              No microSD slot
              Pricey memory upgrades, 32GB version should be standard for such an expensive phone
              Protruding camera lens
              Lacks the optical image stabilization of the iPhone 6s Plus
              NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
              No wireless charging, an infrared port, or FM radio
              No water proofing
              No user-replaceable battery

              iFans: Don't need that.
              Droids: what a drawback.

                Wow I was expecting more out of the camera samples but these are not that good. The noise reduction is so strong, it is a almost like oil painting. Look at the sky, clouds, trees and grass, no details.

                  AnonD-322352, 02 Oct 2015...ok? But you still haven't answered my question.I don't need to, simple Google search should tell you that. One thing was good about one of the Apple forum that they at least didn't mislead me, was very straightforward that I shouldn't get an iPhone. People in iPhone related forum talking negative about iPhones, that should have been my very first clue.

                  So in case you still are in the middle where you don't know which side to choose on, well all I can say that you still have time.

Both iOS and Android (and Windows Phone, I think) can do it to an extent, but some apps get "suspended" (or even shut down) and "resumed" when you need them again, instead of being kept running all the time. I'm not sure any phone had "true" multitasking since the old days of Symbian and maybe Windows Mobile, and phones back then somehow did it with much less processor power and RAM.

                                Does anyone know if the battery test was done with Low-Power mode enabled or disabled? Because it would make a difference as to how long the battery last.

                                If it achieve a rating 62h with the mode enabled, it might do worse with the mode disabled, putting it below iPhone 6.
