It was believed that the new iPhone 6s would have a higher resolution screen, since all its rivals with Android were already at a higher level. However, in the end that has not been the case, they have the same resolution as last year’s iPhone 6, so the large version, the iPhone 6s Plus continues with a Full HD screen when its rivals, such as Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, already comes to have a 4K screen. This afternoon we said that Samsung could the new Samsung Galaxy S7 with a 4K screen. We are talking about twice the resolution of the iPhone screen. A problem for those from Cupertino, in my opinion.
If you think that the iPhone 6s come with the same design as the iPhone 6, you are wrong, because it is not. Actually, the design has changed. Apple is said to have changed the design to prevent new phones from buckling. In any case, they are heavier smartphones, and with a higher thickness. The iPhone 6s Plus weighs 192 grams, instead of the 172 grams that the iPhone 6 Plus weighed. The Samsung Galaxy S6 weighs less than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s, for example.
But to this we must add something more relevant. The screen bezels, which take up a lot of space on the front of the mobile, making its size remarkably high, especially compared to the screen. Generally, we compare the space occupied by the bezels with that of the screen and the so-called useful surface, with a percentage. The iPhone 6s screen occupies 65% of the front of the mobile. In the case of the iPhone 6s Plus, the screen occupies 67%. My Meizu MX5, which is a mobile that I have compared many times next to an iPhone 6 Plus, has a useful surface of 73%, and it shows. And the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge + reaches 75% of usable surface. For me, something key on mobile.
Even today integrating a 1 GB RAM memory is a mistake. Why? Because it is the same memory as the iPhone 5c, for example. It is not possible for a new generation mobile to have the same RAM memory. In the end, it will not be able to run several applications simultaneously, as we are already seeing on some Android smartphones, and how it will end up arriving natively on Android. The possibility of running the new function on the iPad Air 2 to run a second app while running a first one, will never be possible on these smartphones.
And what for me falls within the most objectionable of the iPhone 6s, its internal memory, which is still 16 GB in its most basic version. Buying an 800 euro mobile phone such as the iPhone 6s Plus, and then having an internal memory of 16 GB, is almost a joke. For the same price, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge + has twice the internal memory, and we are talking about a mobile that is very expensive, and that will drop in price very quickly. In any case, it cannot be the best mobile in the world, as they themselves claim, with only 16 GB. If we also take into account that the internal memory cannot be expanded by means of a microSD card, in the end we are talking about a smartphone with a higher resolution camera, which will capture photos and video that will take up more space, but with the same internal memory with which a mid-range mobile with Android has.
