Weekly Poll: Apple IPhone 6s/6s Plus - Hot Or Not

By 02:46 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments

Though the heat of summer may be fading in the northern hemisphere, there's no hotter month than September for Apple fans globally. The recent iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are official and lines will be forming in front of Apple stores come midday September 24 for the scheduled launch on the following day.

Will you sacrifice a night's sleep this year to be among the first to lay your hands on the most advanced iPhone yet? More or less that's what we're asking in this week's edition of our "Hot or not?" poll.

A recent 12MP capturing camera is perhaps the most alluring upgrade for any iPhone owner and now a compelling reason for members of the other camps to defect. With the 4K video recording checkbox ticked as well, the iPhone's capturing camera is no longer trailing in resolution and major features, and it certainly wasn't in image quality. Meanwhile, an upgraded 5MP front capturing camera with a display flash will haged the selfie-loving crowd entertained.

The internals have been addressed as well, and this generation is now powered by a recent A9 chip. Random-Access Memory (RAM) has finally gotten a bump too - in this day and age a single gig was becoming out of place in a top discontinue phone regardless of platform.

And the body - the recent hero Rose Grecent color adds an extra bit of flair to an already eye-grabbing device, while a higher grade aluminum makes sure any more potential bend-gates are avoided.

It's not all roses, though. Newer materials and improved Taptic engine have meant a substantial weight increase in both models, and the Plus is now dangerously close to 200g. It's also hard to ignore the Apple's stubbornness in pushing a 16GB base version - no, it's not enough, and no, cloud storage is not the same. Which makes 64GB the base usable version, and that's an additional $100/€110 out of your pocket, as if you didn't have to reach deep already.
