iPhone 6s vs Galaxy S9

Which one is best for you?

While the iPhone 6s Plus is over two years older than the Galaxy S9, both have much to recommend them.

The Galaxy S9, though smaller than iPhone 6s Plus, actually has a larger screen, and it’s lighter, too – though some may feel the weight of iPhone 6s reassuringly sturdy. And as you’d expect, the more recent Galaxy S9 packs in some exciting features – including a camera with a Dual Aperture lens that adapts to light like the human eye, and Super Slow-mo mode – letting you capture action in stunning detail.

On the other hand, iPhone 6s has plenty going for it – including stylish looks, a 5.5-inch Retina HD display, Optical image stabilisation to make your videos look professionally smooth and more. Check our quick summaries to help you decide.
