iPhone XR vs iPhone 6s Plus

Which one is best for you?

When iPhone 6s Plus was released in 2015, it boasted the largest iPhone screen ever. As display sizes have been growing steadily, it’s not surprising that iPhone XR (even though it’s not the Plus version) has a larger screen than iPhone 6s Plus. Its LCD screen stretches as far as the edges of the phone and displays deeper blacks and more realistic colours than its predecessors.

If you’re looking to upgrade to iPhone XR, there are plenty of other significant improvements you’ll notice. The camera lets you zoom in without loss of quality. And with Smart HDR the camera simultaneously takes over- and under-exposed shots, and combines them with the normal exposure image to give amazing detail, even in challenging light conditions. Plus there’s Portrait Mode to up your selfie game, Face Recognition to open your phone securely with a glance, new Animoji to make your conversations more personal and more.

Or maybe you’re looking to choose between the two? iPhone 6s Plus still has plenty to offer. Check our brief summaries or compare specs to see which suits you best.
