There are some very subtle differences, such as a slightly thicker frame and a little more heft, but it's so slight that I kept getting the two mixed up when doing side by side comparisons.
All cases fit both phones just fine too so, apart from a small S logo on the back of the phone, nobody is going to notice you've got the latest iPhone. But there will du business plan iphone 6s plus review lots of you upgrading from the iPhone 5S, and in that case you'll need to be ready for a really big design change.
The metallic chassis feels really nice in the hand, with a ceramic-like feeling on the outside although if it's anything like the 6 then this can scuff over time if you keep it in a pocket with keys, so you'll need to think about the kind of case you'll want to keep it safe.
If you're not ready to take the leap to the new, bigger form factor, Apple has the new iPhone SE to satisfy your 4-inch cravings. One of the things that Apple is touting is the fact the iPhone 6S is made of series aluminum, which is the strongest thing it's ever used in iPhone construction.
The obvious connection people will make is with 'Bendgate', when some users claimed their new phone had developed a slight curve in their pocket without much pressure. The common belief was that these phones began to twist when placed in a rear pocket and sat upon.
While it was proven that other metal phones actually were worse when it came to bending Apple didn't come out of the controversy well. So it's no surprise that, while the company won't admit the real reason, the new iPhone is strong and never going to bend with such pressure.
However, I feel like that we shouldn't feel happy our phones no longer bend — this seems like one of the minimum expectations I'd have of a smartphone, not a compelling reason to buy it. The front of the phone is now covered in a new level of strength, with a glass that's far less prone to shattering when dropped on the floor — now that's something I can get behind.
We've not drop tested it - we'll leave that to some other, braver reviewer - if the screen is stronger the responsiveness hasn't dropped.
In the hand, the iPhone 6S still feels like a dream. Even with the extra 14g over the iPhone it feels lightweight, easy to manipulate and really warrants the price.
Samsung's similarly old Galaxy S7 Edge invokes the same kind of feeling, and with it you don't mind spending the extra money over a more budget phone. In terms of design, if you've seen the iPhone 6 then you've seen the 6S.
The volume buttons, the power key, the silencer switch and the speaker are all in the same place as its predecessor, with the grille at the bottom very easy to cover when you're watching videos or playing games in landscape. If you're using the 5S, this is leagues ahead.
The construction is good, the materials solid and there's no wiggle in the buttons at all. While you probably never bent your 5S, the idea that the iPhone 6S is stronger will probably please you, however unnecessary the claim is. Apple's not done anything great with the design of the iPhone 6S, but the iPhone 6 was such a well-created phone that using the same chassis isn't going to harm its chances of success.
However, combined with the higher price and the continued presence of the iPhone 6, I wish we were at least seeing some retooling of the phone to make it seem more attractive. Screen The screen on the iPhone 6S seems to be identical to the iPhone 6's: It's hard to rate the display, as while it fails on resolution quite spectacularly actually - phones a seventh the cost of the iPhone 6S offer p screens, Samsung's cheaper phone has four times the resolution of the 6S and Sony has, inexplicably, launched a 4K phone it doesn't drop too badly on performance.
The iPhone 6S display is clear, bright, laminated to the glass and insanely colorful. The first time I saw it on the iPhone 6 I thought it was a fake picture stuck on top of a dummy unit, such was the clarity on offer.
So to use the same thing on the iPhone 6S makes sense - after all, the lower pixel count means it can be thinner and the battery can last longer, thanks to having fewer pixels to drive.
But there are some things missing: Samsung's Galaxy range predominantly uses OLED technology, which offers 'true' blacks and high brightness and packs a much better visual punch, and would have suited the iPhone down to the ground.
The sharpness in side by side tests is clearly lower too - the pixels per inch is very low even compared the ppi of the iPhone 6S Plus - and most other models are over ppi to bring really, really clear displays.
Given OLED technology is used in the Apple Watch - and admittedly it looks brilliant - it's a shame the same thing couldn't have been done with the iPhone 6S.
It's important not to get too hung up on screen resolution in a phone - after all, if it's not serving a purpose hey, Sony?"The iPhone 6s may not have an original design, but it has a number of features which elevate it above its predecessor, and every other iPhone before it."
