So the iPhone 6s & 6s Plus have been out for a week now and the response has been pretty positive. People seem to love the offerings of the latest iPhone. We played around with it this past week and here’s our take on the new iPhone 6s.
1. It’s fast. We were hesitant on the extent of the hardware improvements. Sure there’s a new cpu and gpu but how much faster will it be? It’s pretty fast. App utilization, web surfing, mobile gaming, and more seem to respond quite nicely thanks to enhanced processing. Matter of fact, the iPhone 6s is so fast that there have been claims that is as fast as a MacBook.
2. 3D Touch. We weren’t sure how responsive or useful the 3D Touch would be, but so far we like it and think it is a nice new feature. It can save a little time here and there as you need to peek into apps, sports scores, and emails. It also lets use add shortcuts into your home icons, allowing you quick access to certain features within the app. Moreover, the pressure-sensitive nature allows developers to utilize this in some unique ways in the future. If you are a designer or artist, 3D touch also let’s you draw faint or darker lines depending on the pressure.
3. It’s sturdy. The new 7000 series aluminum casing and strong Ion-X Glass screen has made the iPhone 6s resistant to damage. The TechSmartt Youtube Channel demonstrated the resistance of the new iPhone with some drop tests. The glass screen on the iPhone 6s Plus actually survived a 10ft drop unscathed in their test.
