iPhone 7 vs iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 6S vs iPhone SE: Which iPhone is right for you

For whatever reason, you need a phone now and it's got to be an iPhone. With four good ones to choose from, things can get complicated fast. You have the new models -- the iPhone 7 and bigger iPhone 7 Plus (is the dual camera worth it?) -- or you could save some bucks and buy last year's 6S or 6S Plus (now with more storage!). There's also the smaller iPhone SE (is that one too small?). So, here we will make a list of pros and cons compared to the phones.

iPhone 7 vs iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 6S vs iPhone SE: Price

iPhone 7 vs iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 6S vs iPhone SE: Price

iPhone 7 Plus

As far as iPhones go, the 7 Plus makes you elite. It's the priciest of the bundle, but with it you get that dual-camera system that can take some incredible photos with an artsy bokeh effect (better than the Google Pixel's version). Biggest downside: it can be unwieldy if you're used to a smaller phone.

Major pros:Major cons:
  • Two cameras are better than one for fancy portrait shots and optical zoom
  • A 5.5-inch screen gives you tons of space to view and tap
  • Water-resistant
  • 256GB option for monster storage space
  • Longer-lasting battery than iPhone 6S Plus
  • Most expensive iPhone
  • Large if you're used to a 5-inch screen or smaller
  • No headphone jack! (You have to use the Lightning port or wireless headphones/speakers)
  • Static home button feels weird at first
  • Jet black color option scratches easily

Is the dual camera worth it?

A dual-lens system doesn't guarantee better results than a single-sensor system. For instance, in objective testing, the dual-lens Huawei P9 and LG G5 don't deliver unambiguously better photo quality than some of their single-lens competitors. And it looks like the relevant iPhone 7's camera will be supplied by LG, though if recent leaked photos are correct, it won't be the same modules as those of the G5.

It probably won't help with video. Low-light video is still a problem for the iPhone, and as far as I can tell, no dual-camera systems address any video improvements. The current available technologies have half-baked zoom quality. While the computational zoom of dual-module cameras is a definite improvement over ugly digital zoom, it's still only partway to where it could be.

iPhone 7

This year's 4.7-inch iPhone 7 makes some real gains against the iPhone 6S, especially when it comes to taking photos, charging up and withstanding a watery mess. It's a great phone, and not too big.

Major pros:Major cons:
  • Cameras come with optical image stabilization, just like the 7 Plus (and 6S Plus)
  • Better low-light shots than last year's phone
  • Water-resistant
  • 256GB option for monster storage space
  • Improved processor and battery performance over iPhone 6S
  • No headphone jack on this one either
  • Jet black color option scratches easily
  • Static home button feels weird at first
  • Looks almost identical to the 6S

Remember, the same cash gets you a larger iPhone 6S Plus if that's your jam, or get a 6S with quadruple the iPhone 7's starting storage.

iPhone 6S/6S Plus

Last year's phones still have a lot of mileage left, and Apple keeps it easy at 32GB and 128GB models (no more 16GB, hooray!). Note that the larger 6S Plus has optical image stabilization in its camera, while the 6S does not.

Major pros:Major cons:
  • Apple shaved down the price
  • More storage! Base models now start at 32GB, not 16GB
  • They still have a headset jack
  • They're still good
  • Not water-resistant
  • Slightly shorter battery life than new iPhones
  • 6S Plus doesn't have two cameras or fancy new portrait mode
  • Slightly slower processing speeds

If you don't have to be at the head of the pack, either iPhone 6S model is still a great buy. A lot of iPhone owners will hang on to theirs for another year, if not longer.

iPhone SE

No, you will not plunge back into the Stone Age with an SE, even though it looks like yesteryear's iPhone 5. In fact, it's essentially a repackaged iPhone 6S, it's fast and one of the only "small phones" you can buy.

Major pros:Major cons:
  • 4-inch screen helps keep the body petite and light for small-phone fans
  • Compatible with iPhone 5/S cases if you're upgrading
  • Has most of iPhone 6S' goodies like Apple Pay, always-on Siri
  • Really affordable
  • Headphone jack
  • About the best battery life of any iPhone
  • Selfie cam is behind the times
  • No 3D Touch, if you're used to that
  • Not water-resistant
  • 16GB model looks like a steal, but you'll want 64GB of storage

How long would I hang on to it? Its affordable, midrange price makes the SE a terrific stopgap to replace a lost or broken phone for a year while you wait for Apple's big 10th anniversary iPhone next year (more below). Then, sell it off or pass it on to the kids.
