iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 6S vs. iPhone 6: what's the difference?

Just weeks after the release of the latest model of iphone, we bet you’re all wondering how the 7 shapes up to previous models. Already critics are either praising the 7 as being the ultimate iphone to date, while others see little advantages over the sixes. Here we’ll take a look at the most noteworthy features of each to discover which one is truly better.
 

How do they look?

The new iphone 7 is similar to the iphone 6 and 6s except for a few key differences. While the 6s and 7 are virtually the same size and weight, the 6 is the smallest and lightest. They all look almost identical except that the antenna strip on the iphone 7 has been moved to a less conspicuous spot, and the headphones jack has been replaced with a lightning port to minimise dust. The iphone 7 also comes in two new colours of black and jet black to replace the old space grey.

 

Screen, display and camera

The iphone 7 boasts a better camera and display than either of the iphone 6 and 6s. While they have the same resolution in terms of pixels, they differ in their display types. The iphone sixes have LED displays whereas the iphone 7 has a retina HD display, giving the 7 colours that are 25% brighter and more striking. The iphone 7 also has a superior camera to either of the two sixes, with a smaller aperture and higher megapixel count for more precision. However the iphone 6s is quite similar to the 7 in many ways in that it has 3D touch technology for ease of use, is capable of Live Photos and 4k video recording.
 
 

Which is the most powerful?

When compared in controlled tests, the iphone 7 turns out to have the strongest and most long-lasting battery compared to the sixes. Its battery life is two hours longer than the 6 and 6s and has a total of 712 minutes of call time. That’s a lot of call time but really, for the most of us, there’s little difference between 9 hours and 11 hours of call time. And although the iphone 7 uses the latest operating system, the iOS 10 which runs beautifully and smoothly, it’s got little to no discernable improvements for the average user. We feel that when it comes to operating systems, power and call time, you could be using refurbished iphones, especially the 6s, and notice little difference from the 7.
 
 

What’s this about waterproofing?

One of the major appeals about the new iphone 7 is the waterproof and dustproof design. While the 6 and 6s drown in those water-related accidents, the iphone 7 survives, making it an innovator among apple products.
 
 

Conclusion:

One of the major appeals about the new iphone 7 is the waterproof and dustproof design. While the 6 and 6s drown in those water-related accidents, the iphone 7 survives, making it an innovator among apple products.
 

While the iphone 7 does offer new and improved features, namely the waterproofing, increased battery time and display vibrancy, the sixes have many of the same features that make the 7 attractive, and this is especially true of the 6s. The 6s and 7 share their light and streamlined modelling, 3D touch, Livephoto and 4k video features, and the much-loved iOS which made apple so popular. So is the 7 worth it? For a discerning user, the iphone 7 has its advantages, but for buyers looking for very similar quality at a much discounted price, we recommend the iphone 6 and 6s. Don’t forget that you can also get refurbished mobiles for even cheaper in quality that is as good as new.
