Browse This Page

If the research conducted by Localytics is to be believed, iPhone 6s is faring way better than iPhone 6s Plus with about 1.5% of all Apple users using it. This is in contrast with a puny 0.4% of 6s Plus. The heftier price tag of the latter could be one of the reasons why customers are reluctant to opt for the device, along with its increased physical size as well.iPhone 6s and 6s Plus SalesThe two devices have set unprecedented records in terms of sales at Apple. Just the first three days of the launch of the two smartphones brought with it 10 million sold devices. However, statistics also show that the most popular iPhone so far is iPhone 6, followed by 5s and 5.

  • Ashish Mehla

    meizu m2 note is also good.

  • Prajyot Singh

    OIS is a differentiating factor and resolution too

  • Sunny Mohanty

    iPhone 6S Plus anyday..don’t go for the 16gb..eats up storage

  • Raju Radhakrishnan

    Its due to d comfort of holding it…
    6s plus is too huge & esp iphone users doesnt prefer big phones…
    For me 4.7 inches s d best size…!! Lovin my 6s

  • Anchal Dhiman

    moto g3 is much better…!!

  • Sachin Balan

    iPhone 6s 64GB is the Max a average person in India would go for.

  • Dipankar Mukherjee

    iPhone 6S & 6S Plus Now available on flipkart.

  • Malik Bagwala

    I think it has to do with the size rather than the price…ironically the 6s plus offers more value through its insane battery life, OIS and a 1080p high res screen..all that for 100$ more

  • GurPreet Kamboj

    At 12k we can get a Samsung Galaxy grand max with 720p resolution, 13mp cam, 4g 3g edge , 5.25″ ips screen + nfc (not in iphone) go for it

  • GurPreet Kamboj

    this phone is not for indians

  • Bikram Singh

    Why spend more money only for screen ?

  • Rahul Deo

    Because it is more affordable.. As compared to 6s plus

  • Nawaz Sagri

    but technically 6S plus should have been more popular… it is toping every benchmark test results
