iPhone 6S Plus Phones to Help You Stay in Touch With Friends and Family

Apple's iPhone 6S Plus is one of the company's larger models so if you are after a decent-sized phone, why not browse iPhone 6S Plus phones on eBay to see how much you can grab one of these generously-sized devices for?

What does the S stand for?

The S in the iPhone 6S Plus means nothing at all! An Apple vice president revealed that the letters used in the various iPhone models, such as this one, do not have any special designation, despite internet threads claiming that the S stands for 'security' or 'sensitivity'. The closest would be S for 'special' as the VP said that the letters designate special features, just like the letters R and S on cars show that they are sportier or revamped in some way.

Difference between iPhone 6S Plus phones and iPhone 6S phones

The main difference is in the size of the iPhone 6S screens: The smaller option, the iPhone 6S, has a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6S Plus phones have a 5.5-inch screen. If you want a phone for watching videos, streaming television services, or even for face-timing with loved ones, the larger option will work well for you.

Size, storage, and colour variations

The dimensions of the phone are 158.2 millimetres by 77.9 millimetres by 7.33 millimetres and it weighs a mere 192 grams. The screen resolution is 1080 x 1920 pixels, which means that it is high-definition-enabled for clarity of video playback and photography. There are five storage size variations: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, as well as a range of colour options:

  • Gold: A subtle golden gleam of opulence.
  • Rose Gold: Soft metallic pink.
  • Space Grey: Deep slate grey; business-like and subtle.
  • Silver: Almost white, this colour is the classic Apple offering.
What other benefits of the iPhone 6S Plus are there?

The phone is a good size to be easily portable, fitting into most pockets and handbags, but with the larger screen so it is good for video viewing or even use as an eReader. It can even be used for work, with the onscreen keyboard displayed large enough for most fingers to type onto the screen quickly, instead of using thumbs. This puts the phone into the 'phablet' class – a portmanteau between a tablet and a phone, with the advantages of both. The camera is easy to use, and the clear, toughened glass screen makes colours seem vibrant and bright. Released in 2014, the software bugs that plague any new release have been ironed out, and the battery life is good, with the phone easily lasting all day, even with heavy to moderate use.
