The iPhone 6s is a bit thicker than last year’s iPhone 6. That has the 6s measuring 4 percent thicker than the Galaxy S6 and just a hair thicker than the S6 Edge. Just remember that, relatively speaking, all three are very thin phones.


The iPhone 6s also measures 4 percent heavier than the GS6 and 8 percent heavier than the Edge. Like with thickness, though, those are still pretty minor differences.
