Engadget Review

Even with a slightly larger screen, the iPhone remains comfortable to hold. With fast performance, a great display, an elegant new design and a much-needed software update, it's one of the best smartphones you can buy right now. We wish it had the same long battery life as the iPhone 6 Plus (not to mention its optical image stabilization) but even then, the iPhone 6 is still the better choice for most people.

Pros
  • Sleek new design
  • Great display
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Fast performance
  • Generally good camera
Cons
  • Battery life could be better
  • Lacks optical image stabilization
  • NFC can only be used for mobile payments
