iPhone 6s Plus vs Galaxy S9 Plus

Which one is best for you?

While these are both large format phones, the S9+, released over two years later than iPhone 6s Plus, has a considerably larger screen – though it’s only a fraction taller, thanks to the Infinity Display that curves into the sides. Plus it has advanced features including a sophisticated dual-lens camera, Super Slow-mo video and more.

iPhone 6s Plus still has plenty of screen space though – and images and video will look great on its 5.5-inch True Tone display. And for an older (and less expensive) phone it has some impressive features, including optical image stabilisation to ensure your videos look smooth even if you’re filming in tricky conditions.
