iPhone 6s Plus vs Moto X Style vs iPhone 6 Plus: Specs comparison

iPhone 6s Plus vs Moto X Style vs iPhone 6 Plus: Specs comparison
Well, folks, the insanely successful iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have officially turned 12 months old and, as tradition dictates, Apple has announced their rehashed versions – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Retaining the very same design as their predecessors, but carrying a hardware bump, the new Apple handsets may face some serious competition not only in the face of the progressive 2015 Android flagships, but also the soon-to-be-cheaper iPhones of yesteryear.

Remember the Moto X Style? Motorola's surprise phablet, which was announced at the end of July and should launch some time this September. The 5.7” handset is the Moto line's top-tier handset and it definitely looks interesting enough to draw some custome attention its way.

So, how does the new iPhone 6s Plus compare to the upcoming Moto X Style and the 2014 iPhone 6 Plus? Let's look at them side by side!
