    Hello- I currently have the 6 plus which is an amazing device but I've been wanting to go back to a 5s. I like the small size that the 5s offers. Only problem is, do you guys think the 5s would be significantly slower since its 2 years old?

    Yes, it would be slower. I doubt you'll notice it though.

    Split the difference and go for a 6 or 6S

    It's noticeably slower than my 6 with both on iOS beta 9.1. I'd suggest moving to a 6s or even a 6. It's still comfortable and I have small hands too...

    Thanks for responses. I decided I'm just going to stay with my 6plus. Maybe in few months upgrade to 6s

    Welcome to iMore alexander

    I also like the size of the 5s but would find it difficult to go back after I finally upgrade to a faster device

    I have updated both my 5s and my 6 Plus to iOS 9 today and while the latter stutters here and there the former is fluid and snappy as ever.
    So yes, while the 5s is a bit slower than the 6/6 Plus you most likely won't notice it since the OS has less pixels to move around and is thus snappier and seemingly faster even on older hardware.
