iPhone 6s Plus vs iPhone 7

Which one is best for you?

Here you’ve a choice between the luxury of the large format iPhone 6s Plus and the technological advancements of the more recent iPhone 7.

To look at, the two phones are pretty similar (though of course the large format iPhone 6s Plus is bigger, with a 5.5-inch screen). Unlike iPhone 7 it also has a traditional headphone jack – so if you’re not ready for wireless headphones it may be a better choice for you.

Look at the specs, though, and iPhone 7 has some serious advantages. The new A10 chip is 40% faster than the A9 featured in iPhone 6 Plus. iPhone 7 has an updated camera, too, with a 6 element lens, and captures a wider range of colours than iPhone 6s Plus. The new ‘wide colour’ screen, is designed to show off the results of the improved camera, and a new ‘taptic engine’ brings improvements to the 3D touch functionality, too.

If you’re hard-pushed to choose between iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 Plus, you need to decide which is most important to you – the large screen of iPhone 6 Plus or the improved processor, screen quality, camera specs and more of the iPhone 7. Whichever you pick you won’t be disappointed.
