    Hello guys! Please tell me which I-Phone is best, I-Phone 6s or I-Phone 7. This time I am using I-phone 6 and now I want to purchase a new I-phone. Kindly suggest me which phone is best with latest features.

    You can refer to this comparison on GSMArena: iPhone 7 vs iPhone 6s

    I personally use an iPhone 7 Plus (came from an iPhone 6 Plus) and I think it's the best iPhone there is now. The camera, the screen, the waterproof casing, the new home button (got used to it), etc.

    Newer is always better... So if you can, wait for the 2017 iPhone...

    Now back to the question. 6S vs 7 (I'm assuming this is about the 4.7 version, not the Plus)

    iPhone 7 rear camera has OIS...
    It's IP67

    Do you plan to use it for more than 2 years?

    6S was released with iOS 9, I'm guessing it will get upto iOS 12
    7 should get iOS 13

    Thanks to the 7's vitual home button... You can live without Assistive Touch (not unless you need it for screenshots)

    If you value the use of a headphone jack, then stick with the 6S. Other than that, all the other differences are negligible in actual use.

    if you can wait, wait for the new one. Only 5 months to go.
    If you can't, it will depend on what you need or can afford.
    The 6s would be cheaper and has an earphone jack.
    The 7 would be faster and be dust and splash proof.
    The 7s has what the 7 has and also a dual camera.

    I miss the 3.5 earphone socket of the iphone 6... I'm generally OK with BT connectivity but unfortunately, I still have some gear that relies on old school connectors like the 3.5... so it sucks a bit that my iPhone 7 features get somewhat restricted due to the incompatibility
