iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 6s Plus

Which one is best for you?

Two years is a long time in the development of iPhones. iPhone 6s Plus was launched in September 2017 and, just two years later, iPhone 8 Plus can already be seen to be leaving it behind in performance and hardware.

For starters, iPhone 8 Plus now has dual 12 megapixel cameras, working together to offer 2X optical zoom and some neat special effects. They also perform much better in low light. iPhone 8 Plus also boasts wireless charging, a True Tone display that adjusts colours to compensate for the ambient lighting, and is water and dust resistant.

Likewise, iPhone 8 Plus benefits from Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor. With 6 cores working together, you’ll enjoy a smoother gaming experience than ever. It’s also more efficient than the A9 featured in iPhone 6s Plus – so you’ll get about an hour longer between charges. Added to that, iPhone 8 Plus now has the ability to charge more quickly – up to 50% in 30 minutes.

iPhone 6s Plus still has plenty going for it of course. It’s still a stylish large format phone with a 12-megapixel camera, decent processor and Apple’s easy-to-use operating system. It also has a 3mm headphone jack, which will suit those who prefer traditional wired headphones. Some even may prefer the aluminium build of iPhone 6s Plus – but iPhone 8 Plus (which has a glass back, partly to support wireless charging) can clearly boast many great improvements that make it a joy to use.
