iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Tests and Comparison: Drop, Bend, Water, Speed, RAM, Camera and More (Videos)


Just few hours after the launch of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus first unboxing, impressions and test processes begin appearing on the web, as we known Friday September 25 was the first launch date that includes eleven-countries like US, UK, Australia, China, and German. Consumers in those countries have gotten their pre-orders iPhones or walk-in purchases.

Generally, there are many sorts of tests that exposed the new iPhones to harsh conditions in some times by unimaginable deeds like hammering, firing or even grinding, but here we'll look to what might be considered close to daily uses. We'll also take a look to some new features compared to previous models.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus drop test


The beginning will be from drop tests that conducted by TechSmartt channel, so the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been dropped from three levels: pocket and head heights to 10 feet. The new devices hold up well with the new 7000 series aluminum enclosures, only received some minor scratches. However the iPhone 6s display was shattered when it landed on it, whilst the the iPhone 6 Plus did not shattered when it fell on its screen.

It is worth to be mentioned that Apple is using now a new kind of glass which might considered "the most durable in the smartphone industry", it is also pliable to work good with new 3D Touch feature, which depended on pressure.

Secondly we move to bend test. Bending issue was one of the famous issue that encountered previous iPhones last year especially iPhone 6 Plus, which is known as (BendGate), so many users have noticed their iPhone bent in their pocket after few days, then many videos showed up how it is easy to be bending just with few pressing effort, especially near the volume buttons, despite it wasn't the baddest among their competitors, but apparently Apple absorbed the less very well by using new 7000 series aluminum "the same grade used in the aerospace industry," although some justifications that appeared at that instant.

The video below showing how the iPhone 6s Plus withstand by using two hands wrap and thumbs pressuring on it, that was made by one person at the beginning and ending with another addition person effort.

iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6 Plus camera comparison


Last year iPhone 6 Plus had have a new photography feature called optical image stabilization but the feature missed in iPhone 6, and was restricted to images but now includes videos too. The feature take up for any shakiness that the camera faced. In the contrast iPhone 6s has digital image stabilization instead, which might to some extend plays good, especially in the Full HD (1920x1080) as Giga Tech notes unlike 4k, the video below shows up the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in action with a striking comparison, the footage was fine but you might note a different through the shakiness, it sounds more pronounced with iPhone 6s Plus.

Apple didn't mentioned how iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus carry of RAMs despite the moving from 1GB in older iPhones to 2GB, the matter was discovered through Xcode and benchmarks. The benefits of large RAM appear when we opening many apps or web pages, or when sort of apps that needs or work efficiently with large amount of RAM.
