Though the heat of summer may be fading in the northern hemisphere, there's no hotter month than September for Apple fans globally. The new 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 new 12MP 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 camera is no longer trailing in resolution and major features, and it certainly wasn't in image quality. Meanwhile, an upgraded 5MP front camera with a display flash will keep the selfie-loving crowd entertained.
The internals have been addressed as well, and this generation is now powered by a new A9 chip. RAM has finally gotten a bump too - in this day and age a single gig was becoming out of place in a top end phone regardless of platform.
And the body - the new hero Rose Gold 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.
Nothing 'hot' about it except the useless gimmick that is 3d touch. People are saying its because of Apple haters, but in their opinion what is so good about this phone over the iphone6?
Very simple question to solve half of this..How many Android users had an Apple before and How many Apple users had an Android before? I personally went from Apple to Android and no Regrets whatsoever from that decision
Shameless Apple. Copying all the time. Outdated. If iphone 6 exist since early 2000s everyone will know how to use it. It so simple and outdated even old people doesn't have a hard time using it.
