    Note 5 was my last phone. I upgraded to the 6s Plus because I felt sick of Android. Before the Note 5 I was rocking the iPhone 6 and have always wanted a bigger iPhone, hence the 6s Plus.

    I currently have an iPhone 6S Plus. My previous iPhone was an iPhone 6S. Why did I buy the iPhone 6S Plus? I simply wanted one. I've had every iPhone since the iPhone 4S, and the iPhone I had prior to that was the iPhone 3G.

    My actual last phone is the Lumia 640. My reason for buying the iPhone SE is because I didn't like where the Windows 10 mobile platform was going, also I liked iOS and that small size factor is awesome.

    Well, I'm typing on my Lumia right now so I am probably just weird. I just like them both, okay?

    I had the iPhone 6S prior to this 6S Plus. I moved to the plus for 2 reasons. One is that I traded my iPad for an Apple Watch and the Plus is a nice tweener device. Two is that we have new baby (was pregnant at the time) and the OIS would be better for capturing moving kids from what I've read.

    Last phone (still using) is a Galaxy Note 4. Added a line for business reason and want to move to the Apple ecosystem. So I have an iPad Pro and iPhone SE. Will be moving to the iPhone 7 upon release the SE is just too small.

    Previous phone was the 5S
    Current phone is the 6S.
    Upgraded because I wanted "more "better" - (bigger screen, more ram, faster chip, better battery life = "more better")
    Before these, I had a 4S.
    Good Luck

    I purchased a rotary phone long after I purchased my iPhone's. Much louder ringer. The rotary phone is a AT & T brand.

    Galaxy S7. Went back to iOS because Google literally will not let me pay for apps on my main account. Many hours over many days on the phone with play store support still hasn't solved the issue so I plan to stay with Apple just because I trust they will keep my account in proper working order

    My current is iPhone 6. Had the iPhone 5 before that, but get a new phone every 2 years and hand my old one down.

    Current phone is an iPhone 6s Plus. Why did I buy it? As much as I liked the 6 plus it was buggy. The 6s plus is smooth with the extra RAM and I actually use 3D Touch.

    I went from a 5s to a 6s in December. I purchased it because I wanted the better camera and other features. I Love it and have no regrets!

    I been getting the "S" models of the iPhone ever since they started on Verizon, so I had the 5s. Every model I got was always 16gb and I hated it, was never enough room for what I wanted to do with it. This time I got the 6s plus 64gb model. I was fed up with the 16gb base model and decided to go bigger in size internally and externally. I love it, now I can enjoy all my games and my music collection all in one place and have room to spare.

    Because I needed a phone and my cousin had an iPhone 4 and I wanted one. Got the 8 gb iPhone 4 and made do for 20 months, before upgrading to the 16 gb iPhone 5. 2 years later I upgrade to the 64 gb 6s Plus.

    Why did I buy my phone? I found that the string that was tied between my 2 cans was starting to fray. I was losing sound quality and text was also buggy.
