Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 6s Plus vs iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison
Let's talk about the iPhone Plus and it's three iterations so far.

What started as merely a supersized version of the iPhone 6 rolling under the "bigger than bigger" tagline has now evolved to Apple's most advanced mobile device yet, greatly distinguishing itself from the regular iPhone 7 with its dual camera and unique camera features that enable you to enjoy lossless optical zoom and bokeh-rich portrait effect.

Indeed, we are pretty impressed with the 7 Plus so far, so were quick to put it against its two predecessors, the 6s Plus and the 6 Plus. Needless to say, the iPhone 7 Plus trumps these with relative ease.

Here's in what areas exactly:
