phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 12 expert review(s)

  • Excellent build quality, with Apple's famed attention to detail
  • Beautiful design, premium materials (unibody aluminium frame), and iconic looks
  • Stronger 7000 series aluminum gives it greater strength and durability as compared to iPhone 6
  • Brilliant large display with potent brightness levels, wide viewing angles, and superb color accuracy
  • The glass screen is now stronger and more shatter-resistant than iPhone 6
  • Buttery smooth, slick performance all-round - arguably one of the fastest performing phone to date
  • iOS 9 is both beautiful and simple, and brings in tons of functionality upgrades
  • Dynamic keyboard - keys are now dynamic and switches between upper and lowercase depending on what letter a user is about to type
  • The most powerful and distinctive feature in the new interface is the 3D-touch functionality, which adds new layers of interaction to the touch display, and opens up various possibilities
  • 3D-touch lets you perform quick actions for the app on the homescreen without actually opening the app
  • Buttery smooth web browser, and a great browsing experience on the large screen
  • Enhanced layout in landscape mode with certain apps (to exploit the large display) improves productivity
  • Excellent rear camera - camera takes realistic photos in virtually every situation along with optical image stabilization, which takes it even one step further ahead of the already brilliant iPhone 6s camera
  • The front camera is a big improvement over the previous iterations - images are realistic and detailed
  • Live photo feature records 1.5 seconds of action before and after your shot - and the shots animate as you swipe through the camera roll
  • The Touch ID biometric touch sensor is the still the most accurate and responsive fingerprint sensor around
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Decent call quality
  • Excellent battery life

  • 16GB of storage in the base model might not make sense for everyone
