iPhone 6S Plus In 2021! (Still Worth It?) (Review)

by birtanpublished on February 21, 2021

Welcome back everyone time for another year of reviews and what better device to start off with than the iphone 6s plus i'm actually covering the success and the success plus this year right now on the first same day and 2021 hopefully it's better for you than 2020 was and how 2019 is better for you i don't know but with the 6s plus what's very interesting is is that first of all i use this phone this was like the second iphone i ever used as a main device and i loved it i had a great time with it and i can definitely tell you in this

Day and age a phone of this size the bigger the phone the more future proof it kind of is at this point even though apple and a lot of other manufacturers are still making smaller phones it you know a bigger phone with a bigger screen and higher resolution really does add a lot more future ability to this type of device now this is a five-year-old phone so it has depreciated quite a bit in value but i'll find the cheapest one on amazon link it down below but i'll probably

Leave some other iphones linked down below too and you can kind of sift through those ones for the price tag you can help support the channel at the same time if you buy those now on the front of the iphone 6s plus we still have that 5.5 inch panel so nothing has changed there it's 1080p it's full hd and this is what i mean by you know a bigger panel better high resolution and stuff can you know future proof yourself with phones like the iphone 12 mini and the iphone 12 and 12 pro the resolutions are higher than 1080p

But they're still kind of around the same with the 6s it's a lower end panel with this one it's a little bit higher so that's definitely a huge asset for it now you do have quite a bit of bezel around the whole entire display is it horrible kind of not i mean it definitely is a lot more and the more and more further we go into each year the less and less we see the amount of bezels on each phone but i think it's totally okay and it's totally justifiable when you remember that this phone came out in 2015. you still have that home

Button which is totally fine on the bottom lightning port which apple is kind of set to remove they may or may not you have that headphone jack as well which is still really cool to have on a device like this and on the back you have the aluminum build pretty much on this whole entire device and then you have that single camera setup now i will tell you the feeling of this phone is still fairly premium it doesn't feel like a cheap phone

It still feels like a fairly premium phone for the most part now it doesn't have glass on the back or anything and i really doubt 2021 phones are going to change that much so we're probably still going to see glass backs and all that stuff but regardless this phone is still going to be a pretty good phone when it comes down to the whole entire you know feeling of it i think even in 2021 now with that single camera setup it is a 12 megapixel sensor which i actually do like a lot

I think it's a really really good sensor when it comes down to it you have the ability of shooting 4k videos at 30 frames per second which that in and of itself i think is a huge plus for it and you also have a five megapixel front-facing camera now the one of the biggest downsides of this specific phone is the you know lack of additional sensors you don't have a telephoto lens you don't have an ultrawide sensor but on top of that you don't have 4k 60 you definitely don't have 8k you don't have porch mode or anything

Like that but i will tell you there's a lot of apps on the app store there's a lot of editing capabilities we have nowadays that can make a phone that looks like a 4 out of 10 and easily make it like a 7 out of 10 and even within ios 14 it has a built-in you know editor in the app itself in the photo app that you can actually go ahead and edit a lot of videos and photos that way too and make the photos and videos look better just stock without even having to download an

App so that's another pretty big asset too and i think day to day if you had to use this phone as a main device the camera itself would actually be pretty good i really don't think it'd be that bad obviously like i said it's not perfect the front camera also no 4k on the front camera only 720p and that's another pretty big downside for it i feel like a lot more people use you know front cameras more than back cameras nowadays but still it has a camera it functions

And for a majority of people out there it'll probably get the job done again it's not going to be perfect but i think it's going to be okay for a ton of people so in terms of how that camera holds up in 2021 that pretty much covers it up in that specific standpoint now software wise this is probably going to be one of the biggest changes of the iphone 6s plus this year when it first came out it came out with ios 9 which was you know five or five years ago right now it did get

Ios 14 which some people including me didn't think it was going to get but realistically you know if i'm going to be honest with you guys it's looking like this phone is going to be ending off with ios 14. so the last version of ios 14 that comes out whether that's like ios 14.4 14.5 14.6 whatever it is realistically it's probably going to be the last version of software that it's going to end off it's not going to be getting ios 15 so what does that mean it basically means that this phone is not going to be

Getting all the features that ios 15 is getting and come this you know june time frame it's not going to be getting that next version of software now is that the end of the world absolutely not because realistically like we saw before with the iphone 6 with the iphone 5s those continued to get updates even past their you know realistic end date so we had phones like the iphone you know 6s and above getting ios 13 and 14 but the iphone 6 and 5s were still getting updates so that same thing could

Be happening with the iphone 6s lineup including the 6s plus so realistically that's kind of what i see happening this phone is still going to be getting security and supplemental updates even when ios 15 and potentially even when ios 16 comes out so in terms of that that pretty much covers it up in the software standpoint now performance wise this phone when it first came out had that apple a9 chip inside of it the dual core cpu and then two gigabytes of ram on every single model that came out now what i

Can tell you is is that first of all the performance of this phone for a five-year-old device in 2021 is still pretty good okay i'll be completely honest this phone is not like a five or six year old android device i feel like with the androids they age a little bit differently apple and these type of devices they age so well that honestly you can pick up a phone like an iphone 4 or iphone 3gs and still kind of feel like you have a

Pretty okay phone obviously it's going to be a horrible experience but the 6s plus is not a horrible experience in 2021 it's still pretty good and if it ends off with ios 14 and nothing detrimental happens to the experience you're going to have a really good time with it in my opinion now it's not that fast and it's not you know the best graphically performing device out there you know to give you some examples if you're playing a game you know if you're playing real racing 3 you're going to

See skipped frames you're going to see some glitches here and there and if you're trying to open up real racing 3 you're going to have a faster experience on something like an iphone 12 app opening speeds smoothness the gesture based design those things are huge added benefits to something like an iphone 12 over an iphone 6s plus however the biggest difference is in my opinion that once those apps are loaded once the iphone 6s plus has an app that's already loaded on it it's pretty much just you're good to go

If you have snapchat loaded if you have you know instagram or whatever you're going to go through you're going to have a good time with it like it's going to be almost the same it's not until you get into those bigger apps and games that you start to see some more glitchness and skip frames and all that stuff but on top of that ram management is another huge problem with these type of devices that are older so realistically the newer phones you'll be able to multitask much better and

Much smoother from those type of devices than the iphone 6s plus so that's another pretty big thing to keep in mind but the smoothness is still there the speed i think is kind of there too for a five or six year old device but honestly i don't think anybody's planning on this thing being like the fastest performing phone anymore so i think it's actually still pretty impressive in this day and age if i'm being completely honest so in terms of performance that's honestly how i would kind of sum it up in 2021 now ending it off with the

Battery life this phone stock had 2 750 million powers now the reason i say stock is because you know a lot of these batteries have degraded over time mine included my battery is not at full 100 capacity realistically it's around that i think it's around like 80 something percent probably even less than that and i think if it was on stock it would actually have a pretty decent battery life still but it's really not that good anymore and that's a pretty big disadvantage

For these type of devices so i'll probably tell you in terms of the battery life you're going to have a pretty okay experience like it's not going to be that great and ios 14 has taken a toll on the battery life a little bit too so that's another thing to keep in mind so but you can still replace it you can do whatever you need to with the battery and really any part of this phone too it's pretty easy and user replaceable so to kind of sum up this video and say answer the question is the iphone 6s

Plus still worth it in the later part of early part of 2021 what i can tell you is is that i think the iphone 6s plus how it holds up right now as a device as it is is a pretty interesting device you know it's not an extreme it's not like it's a 10 year old phone it's right at that time frame where we started getting phones that you know started having dual camera setups and you know 1080p on the front and different things like that and there's still some pros for the success plus i

Mean for the time being it's still getting support which is really cool there's a lot of capability in terms of ios we got those widgets we got picture and picture we got a lot of cool things that realistically we had a jailbreak before and speaking about jailbreak this phone still has that check range outbreak as well and you can jailbreak any version of software that this phone gets so that's another huge thing about the longevity of this device that you can still download tweaks and

All that stuff you still have a very premium build quality to this phone at a fairly cheap price tag in the used market i mean this thing doesn't cost that much if i'm being honest the camera isn't horrible it'll definitely get the job done it's definitely not a huge aspect of it and not a huge pro but it's definitely not a con in my opinion the panel is pretty big on this type of phone too you still have force touch you know support for as long as you can until i think ios 15 comes out and i'll definitely tell you like it's

Not a bad phone but is definitely not the fastest phone it's definitely not a fast i would not classify this as being a fast phone i would consider it more maybe like kind of a smooth phone definitely not the smoothest phone i would recommend or anything but it's definitely a smoother phone than i would expect there's no 1080p on the front there's no 4k 60 on the back you know obviously quite a bit of bezel on the panel and everything but i'll definitely tell you for the most part i think it'll get the job done for sure so

If you're in the market if you want to pick up a phone like this i'll say go for it if you have it i would recommend keeping it for as long as you can but i would recommend going up to a phone like an iphone 10r maybe an iphone 11 if you can you know go ahead and pull the monies for it but i think the iphone 10r is a great phone that i would recommend to so many people has so much capability and honestly that's probably around that type of phone that i would recommend is an

Iphone 10r so that really pretty much covers it up for the most part if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button tell me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount swimming so much if you guys get that also check out the other links down in the description as well my twitter my instagram my other channels more importantly than everything else i love every single one of you guys
