We've assembled handsets in the above chart by highest to lowest overall score, and in doing so, the iPhone 6s Plus takes the No. 3 spot behind Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. That's good company to be in. What's also worth noting is that the iPhone 6s Plus scored 17,663 points higher than the iPhone 6 Plus. That's the kind of thing you like to see when going from one generation smartphone to the next.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus Geekbench

In Geekbench, the iPhone 6s Plus put itself within striking distance of the most recent Galaxy handsets in multi-core performance even though it's working with just two cores -- that's impressive. When switching focus to single-core performance, the custom A9 chip inside the iPhone 6s Plus really shines, scoring around 900 points higher than the previous generation iPhkone 6 Plus and more than 1,000 points than every other competitor.
