    6s currently, up from the 6.
    Passed the 6 down, and wanted force touch, better processor

    Next is the 7 or whatever it ends up being called.

    I had the LG G5 before getting the iPhone 6S Plus. The G5 was a nice phone but there were some OS decisions I didn't like. Some LG's fault and some Google's fault. I decided to go back to iPhone to try the waters again. I had an iPhone 5 right after they came out. I'm liking the phone. I still have my android tablet to keep myself in the Google realm.

    Last phone was a Nexus 6P. I've had every Nexus device since launch and was very happy on the Android platform. Almost 2 months ago I decided to try an iPhone (6s plus) and so far have not been disappointed. I wasn't unhappy with Android, but I just wanted to try Apple.

    Same reason I left Verizon after 15 years and switched to Tmobile......I just wanted to try something different.

    And so far have not been disappointed.

    The first iPhone I had was the 5s 32gb. Before that was the LG Optimus G 16gb. The 6s Plus 64gb I have now is my second iPhone and I love it. I got it because I wanted to step up in CPU performance and RAM as well, along with the larger screen size and increase in storage.

    My 1st smartphone was/is the Nokia Lumia 521, why I bought it? Cuz was the cheapest one they had. That was 2 years ago, and I still have it. No plan to upgrade for me until it's useless. My previous phone was a flip-phone with a 2" screen (diagonally). LoL.........I don't care if I have the latest smartphone.

    My last phone prior to my current phone was a 4s. Now I have a 6. Before the 4s, I tried several - flipphones, Razr, BB, etc but for some reason or another just wasn't happy or comfortable with whatever I had. I decided to take the plunge and get Apple and have been happy since...

    When the iPhone first came out I was using both a T-Mobile Sidekick and a Blackberry. I carried a texting device (Sidekicks were oddly shaped, I didn't like taking calls on it), a call taking device, and an iPod. Moral of the story.. I stuck with the iPhone because it allowed me to limit the devices I had on my person at a time because it could do everything my other devices did. I currently have a second phone (Galaxy Note) that I only use for drawing with the S-Pen but I don't use it for anything else, iPhone is primary. I didn't upgrade my iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s because it wasn't much of an upgrade. Perhaps the iPhone 7.

    I had the iPhone 6 and got the 6s. I have always had 16 GB iPhones and when I got that with the iPhone 6 that was a mistake. When the 6s came out I went 64 GB.

    Yeah 16gb is really tough. I always got the base ones but with the 6 started getting the middle (64). Even that is tight now, so I'll be going at least 128gb next time. Hopefully they go 32/128/256 this time

    I switched from the note 5. I missed the awesome battery life, how smoothly everything syncs with my Mac, being able to go to the Apple Store for repairs or help, how smoothly iOS runs, and having all my photos dating back 6+ years thanks to the iPhoto library

    Coming from the regular 6. After trying a friend iPhone 6 for hours playing with it, I needed to reply to an iMessage on my phone, that's when I realized that my regular iPhone 6 size wasn't right for me. I started planing to get the 6s plus as soon as it will be release and that what I did last November by getting the 6s plus which I'm presently using as my main daily phone and media consumption device.

    My current phone is the iPhone 6S. I purchased it because my wife broke her iPhone 6 and since she doesn't have the best track record with phones I gave her my 6 and upgraded to the 6S 128 GB. Had she not broken her phone I'd probably still have the 6. Although it was a 64 GB and I'm much more happy with 128GBs than I would have been with 64 looking back.

    Default Why did you buy your phone?

    My last phone was the iPhone SE (and a Blackberry prior to that) and I upgraded to an iPhone 6s Plus because I loved the bigger screen (the SE felt cramped after a while), the better resolution, faster Touch ID and the 3D Touch.

    My SE was a 64GB and I stuck with that for my 6s Plus.

    iPhone 6S, bought in January , and I upgraded it (from an iPhone 6) mainly for two reasons: I am a tech enthusiast and I am a very happy Apple customer since 1989....

    Wanted to replace my lagdroid. I also like ios and I sell the products so I wanted to really learn more than a superficial level and experience ios better.

    It is my secondary phone with my lumia being the primary.

    It's a slang term meaning that you are "using" something.

    My last phone was an iPhone 6S. I sold it on Swappa and picked up a 6S Plus to be a tweener/all-in-one type device when I traded my iPad Air 2 for an Apple Watch 42MM. Haven't looked back since!

    I purchased my 6s Plus simply because I wanted the newest iPhone available. My previous device was the 6 Plus which was also a great smartphone. The Apple iPhone just works for me and the way I like to use a smartphone.

    I bought my iPhone because my dad was switching over from T-Mobile after trying it out for two months and I had a 5S. I wanted the newer iPhone so I got the iPhone 6 on Verizon.

    I went from an iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6 Plus, and now to an iPhone SE. I went back to the smaller iPhone because I do a lot of running, cycling and weight training and have an active lifestyle, and the SE is the smallest, lightest iPhone that has best camera and processor, and battery life.
    Having the smaller phone helps me not be so immersed in my phone wasting time too.
    Apple Pay is easier to use with the SE as well.

    The phone before my 4s was a iPhone 1st generation. I upgraded to 4s because some applications would not work on iPhone 1st generation.

    I had the iPhone 5 and upgraded to the 6 Plus. I did it several months before I needed to because I was traveling back home to the States and my carrier has a deal with Sprint for free calling and packet use. The function only worked on the newer 6, so I bit the bullet.

    Before buying my iPhone I had a blackberry. My blackberry broke and I needed a new phone. So at this time I went to the apple website and I saw a page titled "why iPhone" and I started reading and I did like the reasons so that I bought it and I'm really enjoying. Don't think I'm gonna get an android or a blackberry in my life.
