3D Touch on the iPhone 6S vs. '2D Touch' on iPhone 6

Phones
[MUSIC] 3D touch is a feature on the new Iphone 6 and the Iphone 6+ that everyone is talking about. But Jessica and I are gong to put it to the touch compared to regular touch on the Iphone 6 to see if it's actually any quicker. Let's do this thing. Test number one we are going to make a phone call to one of our favorite contacts. We are going to use regular touch or we are going to use 3D touch. Three Two, one. Boom. You've definitely won that one. Yeah, I think for me, also, because I've got that sliding motion right there. So I can just use my thumb and slide up to that contact, I don't have to open anything. I don't even have to tap. Next, we're gonna take a selfie with this front-facing camera. You're gonna do a 3D Touch, straight from the home screen with a quick action. I'm just gonna do it in a regular way. Three, two, one. And there we go. Yes, you a [UNKNOWN]. I have to remember to press the home screen pretty hard to get 3D touch there. We're going to take that selfie that we just took in the camera app and post it to Instagram. Three, two one. [UNKNOWN] Then there's my picture. In that corner. Sure. Well I'm pretty close on that one but I think that the action of doing that over time you'll get really really quick at it. Right I think there's definitely a benefit of pressing, holding then sliding up to new posts and being able to get to it that way. We're gonna use the keyboard now to insert a word in a phrase that is missing through the Notes app, so we'll open that up. and it is fox, we need a fox in here. All right, three, two, one. [MUSIC] [NOISE] See you're trying to press down hard on the keyboard. I am. To get the track pad to come up. Usually this works a lot faster this time it didn't and then I scrub and if I lose my place it's no good. So there's really not much of an advantage here. You have to be quick on the draw to not lose any time. Now we're going to touch on pod in the fun. The pick and pulp action. You just couldn't resist. I couldn't. In the mail app. So what we're gonna do is we're both gonna go into our mail app and open the same link. Tap on it, but you are gonna peek at it whereas I have to open it fully. No. Oh I think has to maybe be the whole link. The whole link? Yeah, there's that. Oh, there it is. But that's quite an interesting thing that you just did. There we go. Yeah, the beacon app is not that intuitive. You have to kind of like fully hold it, rather than highlight it. You do, but it's nice because once I do that, I can interact with that. I can open a link, I can. You press harder to go into the full page? There we go. Just set up. Whereas I only have the option to open it fully and then go back to the menu using the back button in iOS 9. So now that we've done the comparison test, what are your thoughts on 3D touch? Overall I really like it. I think it's going to be more useful for certain apps then for others. I do like that the vibration makes it a little bit more integrated and immersive. And I do think that in the first few minutes of me picking it up, I wasn't as graceful as I could be and over time I think I'm going to really get the hang of it. But overall I do think it adds a little certain something that other phones don't have Well for more on straytouch make sure to check out CNET.com. [MUSIC]
