    Default iPhone 6s Plus @ 6 Months

    So we are a little over 6 months with the iPhone 6s Plus and I thought it would be interesting to see where everyone is with their device.
    Still enjoying? Having problems? Thinking of getting one of the smaller ones next time around? Tempted by one of the many new Android device? What improvements would you like to see? Will you upgrading to the iPhone 7?

    For me I enjoy the 6s+, it is a bit of a pain to handle at times, prefer around 5in for my screen size.
    The Galaxy S7 regular version is the perfect size, camera is amazing and a nice size battery. I really hope Apple takes notice and sees that you can put a big battery in a small device.
    But I Samsung is slow a hell getting updates out and I've grown bored with Android after so many years using it, since the original Motorola Droid.
    Will I update to the 7? Really depends honestly. I like having the latest and greatest. But camera and battery are the two main factors to me and I seriously doubt we'll see at the least the battery send on the small 7 model.

    Still loving my 6s+

    I do wish the bezels were smaller like the Note 5. I am tempted to try stock Android, like a Nexus.

    Other than that, I'm really happy with my iPhone, best iPhone I've ever had.

    Still enjoying mine very much. However, I wish I would have bought the space gray instead of the silver.

    Still loving my 6s+ 128gb in rose gold. It's the best iPhone ever. I love the thinness, curved screen, bazel doesn't bother me much but I wish the phone was lighter.. It's too heavy.

    I am still enjoying mine a lot. My only regret is that I did not get space gray. Also would've liked to have 128 gig model. I am waiting to see what the iPhone 7+ will look like. If it's decent I will probably upgrade and get the 128 gig plus model.

    I love my 16GB Gold 6S Plus.

    The size is just right, I dig the bezels and it just has been overall my favorite phone to date. Everything flies and I can actually see everything on the screen now (I'm nearsighted) with a bigger keyboard and the battery life and camera improvements are nice. I came from a 6.

    I'm totally content with my 6S+.

    I did flirt with a Nexus 6P a few times but I just can't stand Android anymore I realized. So many things that are compromised on Android versus iOS to me.

    Will possibly upgrade to the 7+ but I actually for the first time might wait till next year to upgrade.

    You heard rumors that are mostly false. There's not a dimes difference in the chips. I like having the Samsung chip. On average, the TSMC chip has a slightly better battery life. Maybe. My Samsung chip has done well though. No complaints. The Samsung chip does better in other areas. So they sort of balance out.

    I'm happy with my 6s Plus after almost 7 months. I'm a very heavy user. So battery life per charge has gone down a bit, but that's normal under my kind of heavy use. I'm on it from 5:30 am to midnight. Almost non stop. LOL

    I've had mine for about 4 months after a long time with Android. I still really like the phone (this is the longest I've stuck with one phone in a couple of years). I do get tempted by the latest Android offerings, but I'm trying to fight the urge. Everything with this phone (and Apple/iOS in general) just works so well and is so fluid that it's really difficult to go back to Android and deal with random issues, slow updates, etc.

    I'm on the fence with the 6s plus. The only feature I like is iMessage. People say the iPhone just works but what isn't said is the iPhone does have its share of hiccups. What the iPhone lacks most is innovation. Primarily wireless charging and updated display. Battery is a beast though. I'm not bashing iphone but will more than likely move back to android when the Note 6 gets released.

    We are expecting too much in sense of innovation. To me, I've used Windows, Samsung and BlackBerry but apple stands far among them. The iOS itself is purely polished and made it very useful to users of Apple ecosystem. I don't understand even a small thing about android store and its geeky apps. Anyways, I'm over it an I'm happy with my beautiful 6S+.

    Well 6 moths later coming from Windows phone iOS is so vanilla does nothing till you tap on something . Yeah it just works but wow how bland and I see the cool thing android and the note series phones do with s pens etc . Seems as one can do a lot more on one of those notes . It like android takes advantage of the larger screens were iOS really doesn't

    Thanks your reply is very helpful for me.But i think there is no difference b/w battery life too bcoz i have used both of chips and I don't feel that samsung chip has less battery life. I also noticed that samsung chip is more faster than TSMC chip. And if you are talking about 2 to 3 percentage difference then its not a difference bcoz same chip models can have this difference. My opinion is that samsung chip is good than TSMC. No problems at all

    My first smartphone is the 6S Plus that I received on Christmas 2015. Since I've never really known anything else, I have no complaints about it being different.

    Two weeks ago my wife decided to go to a smartphone too, so we went to get another 6S Plus. However, the salesman totally talked her out of the Plus. He said every single woman that bought the Plus, returned it within 2 or 3 days.

    She decided on the regular 6S, and regretted it almost immediately. She kept comparing it to my Plus, by using it, carrying it, etc. Her vision is such that she really benefits from the larger screen. After a couple of days of comparison, she took her 6S back and got the 6S Plus. She's had it only 2 weeks now, but she is totally happy with the larger size.

    We're in our 60's and always shared one cheapo pre-paid phone we got at Target. We don't regret the move to smartphones, and we don't regret the iPhone 6S Plus choices either. I do find Apple menus in general less intuitive than the Androids I've seen, but we're learning. Now if I could just drag and drop a damn pdf to the phone, I'd be happy. The whole iTunes syncing from one PC thing sucks.

    I'm 63. I love the 6s Plus. So do my eyes. I've had an iPhone for over 4 years and haven't synced to iTunes since I got my iPhone 5 in August of 2013. But I don't have a lot of music. I do my back ups to iCloud. Enjoy your phone!
