Pros & Cons

Pros
  • helpful; and surprisingly utilitarian
  • Good Improved speed and a sturdier build compared
  • Contrast is great and colours are natural
  • speakers are decent The speaker located at the bottom of the phone is decent rather than outstanding
Cons
  • only remaining iPhones with a built-in headphone jack
  • Inferior battery life; camera performance and processor speed compared
  • not a better phone
  • Utilities Home Internet Home Security Kitchen
  • 3D Touch could build a new style of touchscreen app design
  • blotchy and struggles to control refractions from the bright lights
  • too; aside from the odd white spot on my nose
  • strapping wide angle lenses on the front of phones
  • the iPhone 6S is far too expensive
  • the screen uses a flesh tone to avoid turning you too ghostly
  • no alternative and the iPhone SE is still an alright phone
