This week Apple unveiled its brand new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus for 2015, and they have a lot to offer for potential buyers even if the design is nearly the same as last year. Now that we know everything about Apple’s much-improved iPhone 6s Plus, buyers are likely considering all of their options.
There are a lot of big-screen smartphones available in 2015, and now that Apple’s released its second generation 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus buyers have a tough decision to make. The popular Moto X was announced back in July and is coming later this month with a huge 5.7-inch display, being a perfect alternative to Apple’s new 6s Plus.
Last September, Apple unveiled the huge iPhone 6 Plus, and the bigger screen made it one of the most popular iPhones ever. This year that same “phablet” is even better with the new iPhone 6s Plus, and below are a few key differences between it and Motorola’s stock Android-powered Moto X Pure Edition for 2015.
The iPhone has been battling big phones from LG and Samsung for years, but now one more has arrived for users to also consider. Rather than keep the same small 5.2-inch screen as past models, this year the Moto X Pure Edition has a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display. The screen is huge, but the device is really small due to thin bezels around the screen. It’s also very powerful, highly customizable, and has a micro-SD slot making storage a cheap addition, compared to the $100 premium Apple charges customers.
As expected, Apple stuck to its usual 2-year release cycle with the “s” this year, and the new iPhone 6s Plus looks just like the model before it. They are idential, but it’s much improved on the inside. Apple beefed up the internals, added a faster processor, tossed in an improved 12MP iSight camera, added new features with iOS 9 and much more. There’s a lot to consider, and we’ll only touch on a few main areas here today.
If a big smartphone is something you’ve been debating, considering all phones keep getting bigger and bigger, check out the slideshow below full of details. It goes over everything that’s new with the iPhone 6s Plus, and how those features and specs compare to Motorola’s latest. Most will choose one or the other based on Android or iOS, but if you’re on the fence, we have all the details.
