After a year of the great iPhone 6s, do you think is it still worth buying? With the release of the newer iPhone 7, is the iPhone 6s still the better option? maketecheasier.com has the answers it’s down below:
What’s new with the iPhone 7?
The iPhone 7 has made headlines since it was announced that the device would drop the headphone jack. Given that it’s the most expensive iPhone that has ever been released, is it really worth the extra money?
Early adopters have started giving their verdict on the device, and it isn’t as much of a leap as we’d been hoping for. Battery life is still an issue compared to premium Android handsets, and reviews have noted some teething issues with the new technology.
Upgrades are usually better than the previous model, but it’s hard to say the same about the iPhone. There are new colours and more memory with the base model, but it’s hardly worth the inflated price.
The 7 has enhanced LTE support, which allows for faster networking speeds, while the camera has been improved ever so slightly when taking pictures at night.
The device is slightly snappier, and it’s also dust- and water-resistant. It’s also more likely to stay ahead of the curve in terms of compatibility with the latest apps and updates. It’s not enough for some, but it is a slight improvement overall.
So the iPhone 7 has almost the same features and specs with the iPhone 6s.
Should you get the iPhone 6s?
To be honest, the iPhone 6s is still a capable handset, and if you need to use an Apple device it’ll handle most tasks with ease. The retina screen is still a great display, (especially on the 6S Plus), and it’s still a good choice if you want to upgrade because it will handle all of your needs.
There are hardly any features that you’ll be missing out on, although the 64-bit A10 Fusion chip found in the 7 is slightly faster than the dual-core Apple A9 processor used by the older model. The A9 is still fast enough to handle nearly all tasks with ease.
If you plan on getting a device on contract, the older handset is always going to be cheaper. You may have to stick with it for twenty-four months, but it’ll still be relatively useful for another two years. It’ll probably still have decent resale value as long as you look after it.
If you have the money to spare, it makes sense to buy the handset outright. Prices have started to fall following the release of the 7, and there are lots of people selling their phones at a cut rate as they can’t deal with not having the latest version. If you need the screen real estate it’s worth going for the Plus model if you can.
It’s always tempting to get the latest and greatest version, and it’s up to you to decide which is the best for your needs.
