A big phone with a top-class cameraKey Features:

- 1.8GHz, dual-core Apple A9 processor with 2GB RAM
- 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation
Just like last year, the iPhone 6S Plus is the larger cousin to the 6S. It has a 5.5-inch screen with a higher, 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. It's an excellent screen – it can't match the best from Samsung, but it's right up there among phones with LCD screens.
The Plus version also has Apple's innovative 3D Touch system, which can detect the level of force you use to press the screen and activate extra software options. It's a great addition to the iPhone that we can see many companies copying it in future.
Apart from its size, the iPhone 6S Plus adds optical image stabilisation to the camera over the standard 6S. This makes it better for shooting photos in low light and also makes it easier to get steady, shake-free video. It's the better phone for video.
Battery life is better, too, but the Plus does feel very big and heavy. It's heavier than the first 'Plus' phone, so try it out first if you think weight is important.
