iPhone 6s Plus vs iPhone SE

Which one is best for you?

If you’re considering a choice between iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE, then the biggest factor is going to be size – followed by price. iPhone 6 Plus boasts one of the largest screens in Apple’s range. By contrast, the more affordable iPhone SE has a 4-inch screen – the smallest in the current range.

Apart from its smaller size, iPhone SE stands up very well in comparison to iPhone 6 Plus. Both have a 12-megapixel camera, though iPhone 6s has the added bonus of optical image stabilization for video. Both feature the A9 processor chip, too, so you can expect the same speed and performance, and the same ability to support the latest versions of your favourite apps.

If you want the benefit of Apple’s A9 chip, easy to use operating system and superb 12-megapixel camera, iPhone SE is certainly a great choice. But if you want the luxury of a big screen, iPhone 6s Plus is a clear winner. The bigger phone also supports 3D Touch so, besides the larger screen, there are some neat features that may tip you into spending a little extra for iPhone 6s Plus.
