Released in September 2016, Apple iPhone 6s still offers a solid performance for its age, but its price of $586 isn’t something you would be eager to pay for it. Apple iPhone 6s has an LED-backlit IPS LCD display, with 750 x 1334 pixels resolution, which is slightly above HD resolution, however, this resolution works just fine here, because we are talking about 4.7″ screen. On the hardware side, Apple iPhone 6s offers an Apple A9 chipset, coupled with Dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister CPU. Yes, we know that dual-core CPUs aren’t the best solution today, but it works great here.
PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics) GPU is also great for games and the 2 GB of RAM here is just enough. One of the best features here is a 12 MP main camera, capable of recording videos in 2160p at 30 fps. The front 5 MP camera isn’t bad either when it comes to taking selfies and Skype calls, with its 5 MP.
Just like any other Apple products, this device is also coming with a lot of improvements from the previous generation even though the critics say that the iPhones are still the same on every generation. Even though they are true sometimes in this case Apple has definitely put the time into producing this product. Especially the screen looks more bright and vivid from every angle compared to the previous models. 4.7 inch Retina display definitely give something very unique to the iPhone 6s. The A9 chip packed inside provides an extremely fast performance to the display as well as the refresh rate.

Apple iPhone 6s is my favorite smartphone at the moment. It has a 4.7" screen which is enough for me and my small hands and packs a serious punch when it comes to performance. I use it mostly for social media and some games and works well.
