Weekend diary: Life with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus

What's new with the new iPhones? Follow our tweet journal for impressions and lots of photos.

We're putting the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus through a weekend of everyday life to see how it keeps up. Sarah Tew/CNET

They look the same, but there are differences. Are they big or small? What does it feel like to live with the new iPhones, the iPhone 6S and the larger iPhone 6S Plus ? And how do they last through a New York Jets tailgate?

I'll be taking Apple's newest smartphones along for 48 hours through everyday life (and a pro football game) in New Jersey... Come follow along as I record my observations (and the reactions of others) in tweets. And check out the photos, all of which will be from the built-in cameras on both phones.

Tweets are presented in chronological order (oldest first). If you'd prefer the raw feed in reverse chronological (newest first) order, follow me on Twitter: @jetscott.

Have a question for me about the new iPhones? @reply to me on Twitter, and I'll do my best to answer!

Thanks for following. Evening has arrived, and with it the end of this two-day journey across suburban New Jersey.

My main observations: always-on Siri is fun with kids, 3D Touch takes some getting used to (but you don't need to use it), Live Photos are intriguing but sadly not easy to share and the cameras seem really good. Also, battery life seems similar to last year's phones...as in, the Plus has a significant extra boost. For more stay tuned for our full reviews of the 6S and 6S Plus.
