This kind of digital rubbish happens every time Apple releases a new product that gets rave reviews. “Apple’s iPhone 6s is one of the best smartphones I’ve ever used– but here’s why I wouldn’t buy it.” Lisa Eadicicco:
It’s a bit faster. It has a pressure-sensitive screen. The camera is noticeably better in some ways. The design is more durable.
It’s an excellent phone all around. But if you have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you probably don’t need to upgrade.
Not your call, Lisa. Face it. You’re a link bait, click bait, pseudo-journalist who gets paid for writing controversial, sensationalist rubbish vs. insightful analysis.
It’s a bit faster? Every test and benchmark says it screams faster. The 3D Touch is phenomenal. Camera is noticeably better? Every review says it’s a remarkable camera, especially for video (4k).
From there she sings the iPhone 6s praises ad nauseam, but concludes with why you should not buy it, not why she would not buy (the premise of the article, based upon the headline).
All of these various improvements combined make Apple’s latest iPhone more powerful and easier to use than ever before.
The overall experience is better, but it hasn’t changed substantially enough to warrant an upgrade from an iPhone 6. However, if you have an older iPhone such as an iPhone 5S or iPhone 5, it’s a great choice, and it’ll feel like a huge change.
Then again, last year’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will feel like a huge change from an iPhone 5s or iPhone 5. Plenty of words and photos, but where’s the insightful analysis? Oh. My bad. She writes for Business Insider.
