    Default Can't give up my 6s Plus!

    Just wanted to share my most recent experience. I have had the 6s Plus since it came out, (had the 6 Plus before that) so I was used to the screen size. Plus the battery life on mine has always been really good. When the iPhone SE came out, we waited a few months and we upgraded my husband's old iPhone 4s to the SE. After setting it up for him and playing with it, I thought I wanted to go back to the 4 inch screen size, so I ordered one for myself, still keeping my 6s Plus, but planning on selling it. I loved it when I got it, and thought it wouldn't take long to get used to the smaller size, and the smaller keyboard. I used it for almost my entire return window period, (periodically getting my 6s Plus back out and looking at it lol)....and I decided I couldn't part with my 6s Plus after all. It is hard to use one-handed, but I don't use it one-handed much anyway, plus I can see the screen without having to put my readers on lol....so I returned the SE just in time before my return window ended, and gladly picked my 6s Plus back up, like an old friend! I guess what they say is true. When you do finally get used to the bigger screen plus the other advantages the Plus models offer, it is hard to go smaller! Have a great day everyone!

    The moral of this, is:
    Yes, size does matter.

    I literally have done it three times with the SE. I love the idea of it, but after a few days I miss my 6s+ and switch back. I have decided to just keep both and switch off as my mood fits

    Yes I could do that too....I have a 6s and a 6s Plus that is paid for. I was told by my carrier, (C Spire, formerly Cellular South) that I can't swap out the SIM card. They have to switch my line between phones in their system, (for a $5.00 charge of course), but I tried it and it worked fine. I may just keep both and swap out when I feel like it.

    Couldn't agree with you more. It took a little while getting used to the 6S Plus but when i pick up a 6, its like "whoa, who uses these small screens?" lol. i can't even imagine trying to adjust to a 5SE.

    I can't deal with a tiny phone, so probably will get the 6s+ instead of an iPhone 7 because it'll be $100 cheaper and I plan to get a 10th Anniversary iPhone next year.

    That's what I did. I was waiting for the 7 to come out but I found a great deal on a 6s plus 128gb model and had to jump on it. I'll just use this until the next model. With iOS 10 it will feel like a new device anyway.

    I've suggested this to multiple people this same thing with the added caveat that it's not guaranteed the iPhone 6S+ will be available after the 7 launch.

    Same here. Ever since I got the 6 Plus and now the 6s Plus, can't go back to the 4" screens. Now I'm enjoying both my Plus phones!

    And yeah. I agree with you. I have an iPhone 6s Plus and this is my first iPhone so I went big. I have some friends who have the iPhone 4 and 5 and when I play with it I find it really, really small. I don't see me using a 4" phone since I have a 5.5" one. I do almost all of my work on my phone and sometimes my computer is "useless " to me. A bigger screen has its advantages and then this is the future of phones so you made a amazing choice.
    I really love the design of the 5SE but I'm gonna stick with my plus model.

    I don't like buying into all of the millions of rumors about the upcoming Iphone 7, but from almost every source they are saying that it won't be a drastic difference. If you can get a discount on a 6S or 6S+ now would be a good time to jump on it.

    My 6S+ is amazing in every way except battery life. The battery is starting to show some age. I wonder if I can do anything to improve it? I know all the regular methods for saving battery, maybe I should just get a Mophie and not have to worry about it anymore

    In fact after using the 5.5" models, any below that feels like an iPhone mini.

    You could always get a new battery. I was actually thinking about doing this as well.

    If I'm not mistaken, they charge $79 to replace the battery, regardless of the model you have.

    I do think it's a great idea to just replace the battery, that way, it's kind of like you have a new phone.

    I would gladly make that move. I would be all set for another year or so. Thanks for the info
