    Thumbs up 6s Plus >> 6 Plus

    The following are my impressions of my transition from the space grey 128 GB 6 Plus to the space grey 128 GB 6S Plus [AT&T]

    -Overall I think the 6S Plus is a major improvement over 6 Plus. This is probably a controversial statement.

    -The 6S Plus is definitely less laggy and just faster. The 2 GB is well needed. 1 GB on the 6 Plus was just not fun... Once I updated to 9.0, it got even slower and jankier. I think most of the feelings of improvement on the 6S Plus may be all RAM and little to do with CPU. My SwiftKey is definitely happy with the RAM.
    -Battery life seems similar but this is my first "full" day of ownership.
    -The phone is heavier. I did not like the overall feel and weight of the original 6 Plus. This extra weight makes me want to hold it more. I like the weight.
    -I'm loving how sturdy this phone is. You should check the attempted bending videos or the water submergence videos. There is a crazy change in strength
    -I never really liked the style/looks/feel of the 6 Plus and this goes as well for the 6S Plus. The 5S probably had the nicest iPhone style/looks/feel.
    -I will have to wait until I compare the camera
    -Love the 4K feature though
    -3D touch is going to be amazing. People are greatly underestimating this. I think most apps that can benefit will actually be quick to adapt this feature...

    A happy customer

    I agree regarding the styling. I too much prefer the aesthetics of the 5S, but the trade-off is durability. I was constantly worried about the chamfered edges of the 5S getting scratched. It never happened, but I definitely stressed over it (yes, I have OCD). The 6/6S isn't nearly as beautiful, but I didn't worry about every little gust of air scratching the sides. I had a super slim case on both my 6 and 6 Plus that left the bottom exposed, but it was never a problem as neither ever had the slightest scuff. Peace of mind is nice, but so is beauty.

    Personal preferences.

    It had better be...it's the new and improved version of it. It'd be pretty odd if it was the same or worse.
