Sleek and functional, yet exceedingly complex and hard to really grasp its potential.
Quality smartphone with all the bells and whistles you've come to expect from Apple. Upon upgrading from a well-favored iPhone 4S, it seems that the 6S Plus has an inferior battery life. Also, the newer versions of many well-known apps are much larger in size -- don't know why this needs to be the case -- it just makes download and install take longer. While there are more features and options for customization and control than ever before, the extent of it boggles the mind. The iPhone 4S with iOS 6 was enough to handle; the 6S Plus with iOS 10 seems too much. It is exceedingly difficult to keep track of the practical effectiveness of all the settings. Understandably most would just go with the defaults, ignoring the plethora of options, perhaps becoming blissfully unaware of being increasingly constrained to the default patterns and constructs laid down by Apple simply because it's too complicated to do the mental gymnastics to really make the newest iPhone serve you best, and besides, who really has the time to figure it all out? With every new upgrade to hardware and software there seems an ever-increasing void in the working relationship between man and his machine, effectively relinquishing control to the company who made and provisions operation of the device because it's "just too complex" to know your device anymore.Read full review
