      Hi Usman

      Yes no one can beat the camera of iPhone 6s. My brother is using it and seriously am really jealous of it!

      Have a nice day!

  • Thanks for sharing. There are so many smart phone options. The recent incident on one of the North American phone supply is scary to say the list. All these new phones are not as they need to be. My recent upgrade is not what I had expected.
