What can the smartphone with the weakest battery performance on the market?
Since September 25, there is Apple's new smartphone, the iPhone 6s and the slightly larger version of the 6s Plus, commercially. But what has changed? Is it worth it to buy one? FluxPort takes the new iPhone under the microscope - and also takes a look at the battery performance.
An iPhone for selfie experts
There are some positives to say about the new iPhone 6s. The high-contrast display with 4.7 inches and a resolution of 1,334 x 750 pixels can convince. A new A9 processor with 2GB of RAM available optimizes the working speed of the smartphone again.
The camera from the Apple smartphone films in 4k and takes 12 megapixel photos, but this has no major impact, because the images are indeed larger, but not more detailed. Nevertheless, further functions are provided. The slow motion feature can also be used on the iPhone 6s. In addition, so-called live photos can be shot, in which the images are displayed small and animated. Apple has adopted the selfie flash - familiar from apps like Snapchat. For self-recording, the display of the iPhone 6s imitates a flash that lets you shoot your selfies even in the dark.
New operating system iOS 9 with 3D touch technology
Probably the biggest innovation brings the new iOS 9 operating system, however, in combination with the new pressure-sensitive screen. The 3D touch technology lets you trigger certain functions faster by pressing. For example, if you hold down the camera icon, the options are "Take Selfie, Record Video, Record Slo-Mo, Take Photo," which will allow you to decide what you want to do before you open the Apple application. Of course, this is not possible with all apps and everyone has to test themselves first and see where the 3D Touch can be used.
No quantum leaps
Since Apple traditionally brings out new products every autumn, the changes are usually no longer quantum leaps. The iPhone 6s is again available in two sizes that are identical to the iPhone 6. It is offered in three memory sizes: 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. The smallest memory size, however, will be enough for the least. The 16 GB version is available for 739 euros. For the 64 GB version 849 euros have to be browsed and for the 128 GB version 959 euros.
The iPhone 6s is heavier and a bit thicker than its predecessor. As the basis of the alloy this time was used aluminum 7000, which should provide for better stability. As a result, the shades of the golden and gray version of the smartphone have changed slightly. The iPhone 6s will also be available in a new color, the rose gold, which will particularly appeal to female smartphone users.
Biggest Vulnerability: Hardly a smartphone has a worse battery performance
A big problem and thus a huge disadvantage of Apple's new smartphone is the battery. He was reduced from 1,810 mAh to 1,715 mAh . There are currently few phones that have a lower battery performance than the iPhone 6s, which has an online runtime of only 5:40 hours and a phone running time of 4:07 hours. As a result, the smartphone user is even more tied to his charging cable - or as we say, he hangs even more like a dog on a leash. But: The iPhone 6s, just like its predecessor, can be Qi enabled by one of our Fluxys. This is how you can handle the battery problem with FluxPort.
FluxPort offers the Fluxy 6A and Fluxy 6A Plus for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus . Both Fluxys are cases for the iPhone that you can use to charge wirelessly. The loading works via induction - more precisely: via the Qi standard. While the new Samsung Galaxy S6 has already integrated the Qi technology, Apple lags behind here and even shortens the battery life. But with the Fluxys you arm. Once Fluxy grow, charge everywhere wirelessly.
All in all, the new iPhone 6s can be said to have a few new features, a good camera and a high-quality, full-color display. But without a full battery, no user will be able to appreciate these benefits sufficiently. Apple fans will not stop it, but frequent users will be annoyed if the battery on the go "floppy" makes. A problem that FluxPort users have not known for a long time. Maybe Apple should think about whether they do not deliver a FluxPort directly to every iPhone 6s ... :-)
