Apple iPhone 6s Plus Review Roundup

The best-of-the-best got a little better this year with faster A9 chip, better camera and 3DTouch. Like last year it keeps the same 5.5-inch screen size and has optical image stabilization for photos, which are the main differentiating features over the 4.7-inch screen sized iPhone 6s. If you are looking for the best smartphone, this is it.
