Questions About the 6s
Although some might say the iPhone 6s has a bit of an outdated design, the phone is still a great piece of technology with relatively contemporary functionality. Apple produces modern products so even though features evolve and some materials change, the phone itself holds up as a quality product. An important consideration in your purchase will be what you intend to use the phone for. The 6s is a decent handset for basic functions at a good price point but it certainly isn’t fancy and doesn't have the latest efficiencies or tech for content creation.
Whether or not the 6s is worth it, really depends on what you want to use your phone for. Even though it's an old model, a variety of features still make it a good option. Noteworthy iPhone characteristics such as 3D touch and a 12 megapixel camera are present. The phone is also a smaller size and light in weight, which makes it a great option for smaller hands or someone that doesn’t want a heavier device. The iPhone 6s also features a headphone jack which can be a benefit for many. The iPhone 6s has a fully aluminum back instead of a glass back which can make it much less susceptible to cracks and scratches.
Overall the iPhone 6s has more features and durability than the SE. The 6s is available in 128GB storage capacity while the SE is limited to 16GB and 64GB. The SE tends to be the phone that is most basic in functionality and at the time it was released it was created as an affordable but elegant piece of technology.
The iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s share many similar features. They are both smaller and light iPhone models. Both have the same pixel density for the display and both have the ability to shoot 4k video. They have 2GB of RAM and an Apple A9 processor. That’s about where the similarities end.
The front facing FaceTime camera on the SE is of significantly lesser quality than the iPhone 6s. The iPhone SE is 4.87 inches in height and weighs 3.99 oz. while the 6s is 5.44 inches in height and 5.04 oz.
If you're looking for the smallest, fastest iPhone, the iPhone SE is your best choice but if you’re looking for a decent model with durability, a few more features and a slightly larger display, the 6s would be your phone.

back of the iPhone 6s is the mark that lets you know which model you have. But aside from that, it can be a bit tricky to tell the difference between the two devices. However in terms of performance the 6s was a significant update. The upgrades include, 3D touch, a better camera, live photos, faster processor and more RAM. The 6s also introduced the rose gold color option. 3D touch on the 6s means that you can navigate differently since this model can distinguish between a hard press, a light press and a tap.

Considering that this is an older model in iPhone years, the 6s has a pretty acceptable design by contemporary standards. The iPhone 6s is a durable but light budget phone. If you want the latest quality tech to create content or play with photography, this isn’t the model for you. But if you’re looking for a less expensive phone, with relatively modern features for a great price, the 6s could work well for that. Note that this model also uses a traditional headphone jack instead of airpods or a newer lightning cable.
