What's your favorite new iPhone 6s feature? (poll results)

Available to buy starting yesterday, September 25, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus represent Apple's 9th generation of smartphones. Similar to the other iPhone s variants before them, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus look like their predecessors (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus), but that doesn't mean they don't have new things to offer. In fact, the list of new features and enhancements is quite long.

Earlier this month, we published a poll with the purpose of finding out our readers' favorite new iPhone 6s feature.

As it turns out, 3D Touch is highly appreciated, receiving 38.06% of all votes (from 1,100 users). Similar to Force Touch - previously available on the Apple Watch and the latest generation of MacBooks - 3D Touch makes use of the fact that the new iPhones sense how much pressure is applied on the display, thus providing different responses based on how hard you press on an app.

After 3D Touch, the new iPhone 6s feature that received the highest number of votes (751, or 25.99%) was the 12 MP rear camera with 4K video recording - as you may know, the 6s and 6s Plus are the first iPhones that can shoot 4K video. 2GB of RAM and the new Apple A9 chipset also received a significant number of votes.

If you missed the chance to vote in our poll while it was active, you can tell us about your favorite new iPhone 6s feature in the comments section.

Ok hate to say this but apple definitely disappointed me with this years iPhone. I upgraded from the 6 and really think I could have passed and been completely fine

What all were you expecting? My only disappointments were no split view, slide over, or picture in picture. Everything else was great. Better cameras, ram, stronger body, 3D Touch, much better iOS 9 performance (features speed and stability wise). It's an all around great device.

I could see ioslovers reasoning, the 6/6+ were fine devices. 2g ram has to be glorious tho given the headaches with reloading on ios8

I am assuming you have the 6S Plus.why doesn't it have splitview? A 5.5" phone is large enough for it. I'm curious. I know you have either a Note 5 or S6 Edge+. When you go back and forth between the 2 an you get to use features on one that aren't on the other, how do you feel? Which p u one do you use most and why? What's your favorite Galaxy feature? I see you love force touch.

3D Touch, and the extra RAM are my favs. The cameras are great, and the way the Taptic Engine makes things feel is cool too. 128 gig for that 4K

the list is actually long, but I really wouldn't call the stronger body a feature unless if people are willing to admit that the iPhone 6 was horribly made.

I love all the innovation from Apple ! They have so many incredible ideas. Like big screens, 2GB of RAM, 12MP photos... That's so great ! I'm looking forward to seeing this kind of features on other phones.

For the iphones, always will and always will be specs, (CPU/RAM/Camera) because they are lacking in it. Do not reply to me with BS like rl performance and such, just shut it with your comforting and purchase rationalization excuses.
