Are you prepared to supersize your iPhone?

Thinking about getting an iPhone? Can’t decide which model to plump for? If you want a bit more info before deciding on which one to go with, have a read of our iPhone 6s vs iPhone 6s Plus comparison guide.

And if you’re looking for the latest from Apple, then check out this year’s iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Here’s a round-up of everything you need to know about 2 of the most popular handsets out there.



The displays

If you like going large when it comes to your smartphone, you’ll love the iPhone 6s Plus. This has a 5.5in screen, compared with the 4.7in display on the iPhone 6s. Here are the techy stats:


  • iPhone 6s: 4.7in, 1334 x 750 pixels, 326 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • iPhone 6s Plus: 5.5in, 1920 x 1080 pixels, 401 pixels per inch (ppi)


But what does this mean in real terms? Well, the iPhone 6s Plus has a noticeably higher pixel density than the smaller iPhone 6s, which is a good thing in terms of image quality and detail (although it’s been said that this only really makes a difference in screens of 5.7in or more).

Both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus come in a very trendy colour: rose gold.

They’re made with a stronger, bend-resistant aluminium (Apple’s own custom-blend). And both displays now have the same Ion-X glass that’s used on the Apple Watch Sport.



What is 3D Touch?

Both phones have this feature, which allows you to press down on the screen to pull up menus, activate shortcuts, and generally interact with the device.

When it comes to a comparison, you may want to experience 3D Touch on a larger display; but again, it all comes down to your preferred user experience.



iPhone processors compared

When it comes to speed and performance there’s nothing to choose from between the two iPhones – they’re both quick and perform beautifully. Although some may argue that the higher pixel density on the iPhone 6s Plus will put increased pressure on the CPU and battery power.



iPhone camera comparison

Both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus have a 12MP rear camera, compared with 8MP on the previous versions. And the camera records 4K video too, with an improved autofocus for all your pictures and videos. You also get a 5MP selfie camera on both, with the addition of a flash.

Optical image stabilisation is available on both phones for still images, but the iPhone 6s Plus is the only one (and the first-ever phone) to feature it for video. This is probably handy in a larger device that may be trickier to handle at times.


Which iPhone should I buy?

These are similar devices and your choice is likely to come down to screen size and the sort of dimensions you’re comfortable with, and find easiest to use. If you want to see how the new iPhone 7 compares to it’s bigger brother the 7 plus check it out here.
