    Default Little awkward but i just got iphone 6s plus 64 gbjust before one month of new iphone announcement!

    its seems little strange that i could not wait for new iphone7 announcement and bought 6s plus Rose gold 64 gig reasons are following:

    1) i was using galaxy s4 for 6 months and was not satisfied with android overall

    2) i like all the functionality iphone 6s plus offers and i think that it would be enough for me for couple of years ahead before i buy new phone!

    3)Price of brand new iphone 6s plus is very minimal right now in my country right now!

    4) it would take atleast 3 to 4 months to iphone 7 to reach to my country with appropriate price..at start it would be sellling at steep price as history suggests.

    5) tried galaxy s7 edge at shop loved the display but again android was never been my cup of tea!..

    thanks guys for reading....just wanted to share with u!

    Great choice!

    Not matter how the new iPhone is, you still have many great features in the current model you got.

    Enjoy your 6S Plus. I'm enjoying mine. This is my first post here.

    I had been an Android user for the last 12+ years. I love technology and figured it was time to learn and experience iOS. I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with my choice.

    My last three Androids over the last year and a half were Moto Turbo, Moto Nexus 6 and Huawei Nexus 6P. I buy my phones unlocked and at full price of course.

    I immediately realized the smoothness and speed of the 6S Plus (gold). Also, my Androids would often have trouble holding Verizon's signal so I would need to toggle airplane mode. I don't have that problem with my iPhone. Also, the battery lasts as long as my Turbo and much longer than the Nexus.

    People who consider themselves Android experts and bash Apple don't have a clue. I don't care about specs on paper. My phone has a smaller battery and less RAM but somehow Apple has it performing better than any Android I've had. I still like Android and I believe both systems have good things to offer. But now I'm on iOS to stay for a while and will likely get the upcoming 7. Of course, unlocked without Verizon garbage and control.

    Also, I recently bought a 128GB gold iPad Mini 4. Fantastic!

    Sorry for the ramble here. Enjoy, you made an excellent choice.

    Enjoy your phone! The 6s/6s+ models are great devices that run smoothly and efficiently.

    I nearly bought the + model, but frequently use my phone one-handed and just could not manage it (dropped the display model several times--oops).

    I am not buying the 7 either--will wait for the 8 (or whatever the 2017 model is called). I may not be tempted by that either though. Love my 6s.

    Great choice. I also have the 6s Plus and will not be upgrading this year (I think).

    The beauty about the iPhone is that it lasts for many years. I know someone rocking the 5 still. Think about that, it came out in 2012. The phone is 4 years and still useable. Plus iOS 10 will run perfectly on it, so although the hardware might be a generation old, the software will be up to date.

    Although I agree with your points, I think you over exaggerated on the 12+ years, since the first official Android device was released in 2008 . But I'm in the same boat as you. I started with the G1 before Android was being named after desserts, and ended with the Galaxy S7 Edge. I had almost every flagship device in between, usually upgrading every 3 to 4 months. The 6S+ is my first iPhone and I love it. Like you said, on paper it doesn't have as good of specs, but in actual use, the iPhone is way better.

    Oooops, that's right. See what age does! My last non-Android phone was the Omnia II windows phone. Whatever that works out to be. It seems like forever.

    I like the customization available with Android. Using a launcher to shrink the icons, change colors, so on. But I don't miss the simulated battery pulls and needing to clear the system cache every week or so. Holding the data signal, speed and smoothness and battery life are the three most important things to me. The 6S Plus provides this better than Android.

    Of course I stopped commenting on the Android sites' forums because being other than a Samsung fanatic or diehard Android fan you get blasted.

    Thanks for refreshing my timeline.

    Android was initially released in Sept 2008. A little less than 8 years ago.

    I personally don't think it'll be that big of an upgrade. Next year's iPhone should be

    Honestly, Apple does a fantastic job supporting iPhone models for multiple calendar years. You'll be able to keep the thing for at least 3 years with the ability to keep software up to date. Congrats! Enjoy it in good health!
