    Ok my iPhone 6 Plus is having major issues. The freezing screens. The gray bar over texts and lately red screen-reboot on its own 4 times this morning alone

    It's through work should I get another 6 Plus or opt for the 6S. The S Plus isn't in stock around here and I'd be ok with the smaller one. I would be stuck with either for two years before I couldnupgrade.

    I love taking photos and also use it heavily for work and other activities like tracking cycling routes. Music. Etc. I prefer larger phone screens but I also prefer one that'll keep working for two years

    Ultimately, it's your decision. If you want the bigger screen and better battery life, wait for the plus. I don't personally care for the bigger form factor. I love the size of the 6s. I think a lot of the issues are with iOS 9. Maybe try the public beta 5 and see if that helps with your freezing issues.

    Also, if it really is a hardware issue, Apple will replace it for you. They have stock specifically for replacements. But they will only replace for the exact model/size of the one having issues. You won't be able to go from a plus to a 6s or switch capacity or colors.

    The gray bar on text is the audio text feature. It's activicated by pressing the mic on the right. Some clear it by tapping the character count. I got rid of it by swiping it out of multitasking. That worked for me and it has not come back.

    Update: ended up getting the IPhone 6S since my job covers it and I'm stuck with it for two years

    The 6s is very snappy next to my old 6plus. Really glad I went with the iPhone 6s over the 6s plus.
