    This is kind of a ridiculous sentiment...because this is a new generation phone that is replacing the last phone, of course it's going to be better than the last phone, it's an enhanced version of it...would you expect them to just release the same device over again and slap an "S" on it? Every time an S model comes out, it takes what was there and makes it better.

    So saying this phone is what the 6 Plus "SHOULD" have been is absurd...plain and simple. If you use that logic, you might as well just say "New phones are what old phones should have been.", I mean it sounds ridiculous, but it's equally as effective.

    The rest of your post is just opinionated banter, so I won't retort on that except to say I personally think live wallpapers are pretty cool now that I've personally made a few and tried them on my lock screen. Is it some mind blowing tool? Not at all, it's just a fun feature to let you customize your phone a bit more. God forbid Apple give people something that yields more entertainment value than productivity...lol.
    Absolutely agree with you. Some people have the tendency to react right away on things they have not fully understand yet. These kind of people often swallow their words in the end.

    I just got mine yesterday afternoon. I'm coming from a 5s. So far it's awesome. It's everything I was hoping it would be. I like the large screen and I got plenty of storage now (128 as opposed to 16). Anyway, overall it's the greatest thing ever but I do have some comments and observations.

    First, it's big. Taking it in and out of my pocket is nothing like it used to be with the 5s. Not saying that's a bad thing and this is what I wanted. But thinking about what it will be like and then actually handling this phone are two different things. And it's got some weight to it.

    I got the 3M privacy guard for it. I recommend not using that. It does the job but it's a little ugly and you tend to rock the phone side to side more since it's so big. So that privacy keeps blacking out the screen as you are handling the phone. Also a stylus doesn't work with it. I never use a stylus but if I did then I couldn't with the privacy guard on.

    I also got the Apple silicone case. It's not bad but kinda hard to put on and also difficult to take off if you need to do that. Also if you prop it up against a wall or something then the slick surface of the silicone case makes it slide and eventually fall flat. So not happy about that either. I think I need a different case.

    3D Touch is good. I keep hearing people say it's, "useful". And yeah, it is "useful". I like the little clicking effect it has as it pops and peaks and all that. Pretty nice. Not a "must have" but good. I think this will be something we will all grow into over time.

    Not sure what's causing this but here's what happens: iPhone is locked. I put in my finger on the TouchID. It logs in. Then there is some weird lag that happens before the info at the top of the screen shows up. Also can't tap on anything. Then about 2 seconds later it all starts working. Not sure if that's a byproduct of me upgrading instead of clean setup. Or some bug in 9.0.1. For now I'm just chalking it up to a software bug.

    Performance is great. Then again, the 5s was nothing to sneeze at and has held up well for the last 2 years. So honestly I'm not blown away. But it's great performance as I expected. Just not earth shattering like all the popular tech blogs might lead you to believe.

    Also I was a little disappointed that iPhone 6s Plus users don't get Split View. I guess that must be an iPad-only thing. Oh well. Was kinda looking forward to trying that out. I picture in picture is only for iPad users as well. Although I haven't fully looked into all that yet.

    Anyway, those are my thoughts for my first 24 hours of use point of view. Besides the stuff I wrote above,.. I can't out this phone down. I love it. It's so great. Best smartphone in the world imo. :-)
    You may want to try a clean setup. Some of the issues you are mentioning, like the lag when using Touch ID, definitely may be a byproduct of years of upgrades and backups bringing crud with it onto your new phone.

    My phone was setup as new and it absolutely flies. Your 5S should be blown out of the water speed-wise.

    Good luck.

    Coming from an iphone 5c with 16gb of storage, I'd have to say that I'm extremely impressed with my 6s plus so far.

    The phone is very fast, battery life is amazing, and the camera...wow! Having touch ID and Apple pay now is really great too.

    Touch ID is too fast on the lock screen. I don't see it. I missed my alerts this morning. It's so fast it bypasses the lock screen. Need to redo my prints to make it more difficult.
    You have several choices, just takes a bit of habit to overcome.
    1. Use another finger on home button.
    2. Tilt finger with print so use more finger nail to press home button.
    3. Use the off/on button on right side of device.
    Once you break habit from past, you will be fine. It's not such abig deal!

    Nope...same charger and same cords. Something is probably wrong with your specific phone.
    Do yourself a big favor and either use your iPad charger or get one from Apple Store. It's all I use now with my phone, 6s plus, charges from completely dead to full in 1 hr and 55 min.
    Charge rate from zero to 70% is 1% increase per minute.
    Approved by Apple for use on iPhones. Get the 2.1 amp model, 12 watts.

    I'm coming from a 6 and I love my 6s Plus! Can never go back to a smaller screen now. Not sure about people saying the 6 Plus had lagging issues but my 6s Plus is buttery smooth and lightning quick! Waiting for my Dbrand skin.

    What! Afaik, Sean is smack dab in the middle of Gen X. A bit younger than me, but not so much that I'd call him a "younger person".
    When you get to that age where KFC gives you a senior citizens discount without you asking, everyone under 50 looks like a "younger person".

    Not angry at all, nor was I overreacting...it was a simple and clear response to the comment. I'd like to think my late 30's are "young", but my body regularly reminds me that this very quickly becomes a dream...thanks anyways. I'm curious though...for something you deemed so "trivial", why the response? Why not just move on if it's so insignificant?

    Picked up my 6s+ on launch day and it is a solid improvement over the 6+. Really liking 3D Touch. So far, even with all the additional attention my device is getting, the battery life is better than the 6+.

    There is absolutly nothing wrong with the 6s Plus resolution...IMHO. Obviously you think so because this is the third thread that I've read about your dislike about the 6s Plus screen resolution and it really makes me wonder if you have a 6s Plus at all. Your signature states that you're using a S5. I have found that the colors on Andriod devices are not natural.

    You can try AT&T stores. They are stocked up with them all over Sacramento. You might luck out in your neck of the woods. Good luck!
