Performance Rocket
By Michael Barbas | 29 Jul 2018 | 29 Jul 2018
I use this phone for exactly 1 year. No lags whatsoever. iOS 9.3 works perfectly well with the A9 chip with 64 bit architecture and embedded M9 motion co processor. Recently I upgraded to iOS 11, no lags whatsoever, perfect performance. The battery works well, it will never let you done, performs as per specifications. 12 Megapixels camera gives you fantastic quality photos. Apple has indeed made the miracle with this 4 inch small phone. If you do not mind its small screen and selfie camera which is only 1.2 megapixels, this phone is supreme in performance, it will never let you down no matter how many multitasks you are doing, forget about any other phone and go buy it. Only, I would suggest take the 64GB memory.

Iphone 6s in Body o Iphone 5s
By Dhaval Sheladia | 2 Aug 2016 | 2 Aug 2016
i Think Gadgets 360 give very low rating in camera. Because iphone 6s, 6s Plus & iphone SE have same Rear Camera. Why iphone SE doesn't like ? iphone se have same A9 Chip & 2Gb Ram and More battery Compare to 6s in Usage. After Usage 5 Months It is Fastest Phone Than iphone 6s. I have used both iphone 6s and iphone SE. only Drawback iphone SE front Camera and 4 Inch. Nothing Else.But 1.2 Megapixel in Apple is Lot Better Than Android...

Which Model is more appropriate in India for 4G?
By Siddhartha Dutta | 12 Jun 2016 | 12 Jun 2016
iPhones in the US are sold in the USA in two different models, namely A1662 and A1723. They differ in the bands they support. Could someone tell me which model is more suitable in the Indian context to support 4G services offered by major telecom like Airtel or Vodafone?
