Consider Memory Capacity Before Buying iPhone 6S

Consider Memory Capacity Before Buying iPhone 6S


With the release of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus a while ago, it triggers high enthusiasm from gadget lovers, especially Apple fanboy. It is because now Apple has built in innovative features such as 3D Touch, 4K Video, and Live Photos into its two newest iPhone series. But before you buy, it is important to know that you will need a large memory.

4K Video has more than 8 million pixels, it means a 4K Video frame is four times bigger than 1080p video frame. Of course the image result has a super high resolution, but this also affects the size of the file. Based on calculation, you can only record or keep a 40 minutes 4K Video in iPhone 6S with 16 GB memory. As a note, it is with the assumption you don’t add another apps and you don’t save music and photos. If you use iPhone as it should be, by all means to keep such various files, then it is estimated you can only keep 4K Video with one or two minutes duration.

iPhone 6S has 12 megapixels main camera, and 5 megapixels front camera. The resolution would be definitely bigger than iPhone 6 which only has 8 megapixels camera. The photos of the iPhone 6S’ camera will also use 33% more memory than before. Not only that, Live Photos also has potential to eat up more memory. Live Photos is a short video which you can play on Camera Roll. Apple claimed that they already created some kind of efficient compressed system. Nevertheless, the file size result will be much bigger than a standard photo.

Considering the high quality features and how big the memory its owners will need, you can say that Apple is less able to accommodate their users. The simplest solution is to buy iPhone 6S with a big memory capacity. Unfortunately, the price range between iPhone 6S 16GB and 128GB is so far, about approximately 200 USD. Now it is your choice. Are you ready to spend more money to be able to use a high resolution camera maximally?
