Engadget Review

The iPhone 6s keeps the same design as the iPhone 6, but packs better cameras, a snappier processor and 3D Touch, a smart new way to get things done in fewer steps. Beyond that, the combination of iOS 9 and some well-built hardware help makes the 6s one of the best iPhones ever made... even if we wish it had some of the 6s Plus' niceties.

iPhone is not worth for money. You can not browse the files like android devices. You can not play music which is transferred through shareit. iPhone is not user friendly device. You should be dumb while using it.

This phone just doesn't have the wow factor. There's 3d touch but that's about it.

Fantastic Phone. A leap in the cameras quality and the reception for calls and wifi is also much better. The Battery also lasts a lot longer.

I jumped from a 5S so things like Apple Pay (love!) and a larger screen, I noticed right off the bat. A couple of features that weren't as highly touted but I find most useful are first how ridiculously fast the thing is. 2 gigs of ram is where it's at! Also, as many others have noted, the new Touch ID is super fast. 3D Touch is also cool but I'm waiting on more third parties to implement. Overall I'm extremely satisfied with this choice of device.

After a week i love it. It's the usual apple user experience. But if they came out with one that was similar in size to the 5S with the same specs, I would trade it in in a heartbeat. I now need two hands to do what I did with one which does not make me happy..
