    At least Apple supports their devices.

    Whereas on Android... Software updates? You want software updates? Silly user, Trix are for... oops, sorry, wrong phrase. Let's try that again, shall we. Silly user, BUY A NEW PHONE INSTEAD!

    Android isn't that bad either. I came from it. I wasn't really that discontent. Mainly I just want a phone that can get f attires back ported so that I can keep it for 2-3 years and not feel a need to upgrade early. IPhone was a bad choice for that, in hindsight. I don't want hardware limited user experiences. It's unacceptable given the hardware available to us.

    Here's the thing. Most of the folks I know that keep a phone for 2-3 years or more are not interested in the hardware.

    Speed is insanely fast. Battery is bad because I haven't stopped playing with it.
    It's going to settle down as soon as I stop torturing it.

    Speed actually seems better on iOS 9 for me vs 8.4.1... This is on 6 Plus 128

    I don't care what other people are interested in. I'm interested in the hardware because I'm tired of spending $800+ year on phone upgrades and I want a phone that has the hardware and capabilities I need, and one that I know will get proper backports when new ones are added and the hardware is capable.

    The lack of OIS for video is an issue for what I use my phone for. Moving forwards, I'm not going to invest further in a device line that purposely holds back useful features to drive upgrades. Great for business, and they're free to do that. But it's disingenuous to the buyer. Couple that with virtually every Android flagship doing 240FPS and how Video Analysis apps on iOS (and Android) are being crippled with IAP and Subscriptions I've moved most of that back to my PC, anyways. I just need a phone that I won't have to worry about having half-implemented features and not ticking in the boxes with major updates.

    Battery Life my 6+ is the same as always. Performance is sketchy. There really isn't much new stuff to play with so I didn't waste much time "exploring." My Phone updated on the charger 100% and has been off the charger since. If the battery life was affected, I'd have noticed it in the past 8 or 9 hours.

    Well you can only buy what's out there. iPhone, Whatever Android phone.
    My point is the hardware is changing every year not 2-3 years. That's the game.

    I'm reading thru this thread and I'm trying to figure out what I did right .....My Verizon iPhone 128gb Space Gray 6 Plus (1gb of RAM) is as smooth as BUTTA, (Not Butter), and VERY FAST. I just did what I always do for updates (see my previous post in this thread)....nothing different.

    Mee either. My 6 Plus is running like a dream with iOS9. I did not touch my iPhone until the update was complete, then I updated all of my apps and did two "HARD RESETS".
    Same here, been very smooth, no lag or battery drain.

    Updated about two hours ago. Smooth OTA with no issues. My iPhone 6 with 64GB is super snappy now and battery is definitely better for thus far. However, I'm a light user that has another device for work so that does my heavy lifting. I will say the font on the keyboard is obnoxious when in lower case. I know it's a subtle change but it's hurting these eyes, lol

    My Note 3 had 3GB RAM. I am not going to waste your time detailing the features back ported from the 4 to the three. There were many. Lag due to low RAM is not something I had to worry about.

    I had my reasons for going iOS, and they were quite valid. But I am done buying hardware with virtually no headroom. That was my point.

    I am aware that hardware improves every year. I don't want a faster processor. But the ability to use the hardware I have to its fullest potential (OIS) and getting a surplus on a component that can easily bottleneck performance if underserved (RAM) is worth it, IMO.

    Basically, I want headroom. The fact that the S series has 2 GB RAM (supposedly) is a bit of a clue, but I'm not going to upgrade only for the next one to have 3 and the software be designed with them being a priority causing further performance degradation.

    Every Samsung update I got on my phones increased performance, so this is new to me. The headroom in their specs was a large contributed from that. iOS has outgrown the point where it can just be thrown on middling hardware and expected to fly, IMO, and some of the feature hold backs are just baffling.

    I want to keep a flagship for 2-3 years and not feel the need to upgrade for a capability the one I have should be able to do, but only doesn't because the company wants to sell an extra phone. It has nothing to do with hardware pace of advancement. All Android flagships are over specced well beyond what apple would be willing to do in an iPhone.

    I'm my experience for the past few years with all the smartphones that I have owned, after any major OS update, a fresh restore to factory state almost always works wonders since its well known that updates can in some cases leave some bits and pieces behind that can cause minor issues,

    YMMV, but I have found it to help IMO.

    I am happy to report that a lot of the sluggishness is gone, not all of it through. Just scrolling from screen to screen on the home page is a lot faster now than it was a couple of hours ago. The fast task switcher isn't as smooth as I would like it to be though. When you tap the screen and slowly move your finger back and forth over the screen and watch the app tabs move back and forth you can see that there is some graphics stuttering.

    Oh well... at least most of the sluggishness is gone though.
    I have similar reports. It's not slow as if it's bogged down or anything. It seems like there is more lag than there was in iOS 8.
    It's very apparent in the task switcher and scrolling through long lists (like my never ending email inbox).

    I'm using a 6+. I can say that I've started to adjusting to it somewhat, but it's still there. For me, iOS 8's touch responsiveness definitely seemed faster.

    One of my friends has a 6, and he hasn't experienced it. I'm wondering if it's something that just 6+ users are experiencing.

    Still waiting for Lollipop 5.1 on my Note 4. Lollipop turned it into a hot mess. It's unusable.

    For all the specs, I can't take two pictures in sequence because the camera freezes. FB crashes constantly. And battery life tanked.

    An it totally outspecs my iPhone 6.

    But yeah.....people are into specs....meh.....I'm into performance. My iPhone 6 outperforms my Note 4 in my use.

    When I was in CB you spent huge amounts of time complaining about BlackBerry. Now I'm in iMore and you're here complaining about iPhones. It's like you're seek out platform forums to complain about their offerings.

    Why do that?

    Buy your Android device of your choice. Get the biggest greatest fastest most updated most beast most outrageous specced device with sixteen cores and 18 GB of RAM that's future proof until 2035 and be happy and joyful and in peace.

    Honestly. It's gotten old man. WAY old.

    I am not experiencing reduced performance. Quite the opposite. I've found Apple finally quashed an iOS 8 camera bug as well. My iPhone 6 with iOS 9 is very fast and responsive. Everything is super smooth.

    Exactly.
    From yesterday to today going from iOS 8.4.1 to iOS 9 I haven't missed a step. I'm still able to conduct business and pleasure with the same iPhone. I could still do my thing with a least 4S maybe even a 3GS.
    Any desire to upgrade to a 6S Plus is a desire for 3D Touch. Just like I had a desire for Touch ID in the 5S and Apple Pay in the 6 and larger screen in the 6 Plus.
    I'm still getting it done with a iPad 2. Split screen in iOS 9 on a Air 2 gives me the desire to upgrade from IPad 2 to Air 2.

    Like most others here my 6+ has been terrible since the upgrade. It looks like my moms iPhone 4 when I navigate the UI. I've had every iPhone since they've existed and I can say this is the worst version of a os Apple has ever pushed out (from my experience). I have faith it'll smooth out but it needs to hurry lol.
