It’s got a rockin’ processor – an A9x chip with spare room for hungry apps, and a drive controller straight out of a MacBook. So why, 4 days after hitting the market, aren’t regular ‘6’ owners jumping for newer and better. These are Apple customers after all, so taking the price hit for quality and speed is somewhat of a mantra.
Maybe I’m rushing to judgment. Maybe they’re waiting for more reviews. Or just maybe, this truly marvelous piece of tech isn’t so much better than the plain old 6 – okay, not so old or plain- and trading in that worthy device would require the fruits of yet another phone generation. But we get ahead ourselves talking about an as yet non existent iPhone 7.
Let’s leave the trade in\up question aside for minute and look at the 6s on it merits.
You’ve got 4k video that wows. The screen picture quality artistically renders photos like a champ. If you’ve concluded as I have that these phones are really full fledged computers, the 6s lives up to that mark in ways my older laptop can’t.
The Safari Browser speed and graphic loading performance are worthy of applause. If your thinking about which high end phone to buy in a vacuum, you can’t go wrong with the iPhone 6s. Power users just satisfied with their 6 but always wanting more will also benefit.
But if you’re like many who appreciate Apple phones for their dependable, durable selves, upgrading won’t necessarily change your world. It’s a judgment call, but then it always is.
