    Download the Lirum Device Info Lite app from the App Store. That'll give you the specs.

    You have no way of knowing before you buy it.

    If ya dont think you can tell which you have after buying it, then there's no stinkin reason to know prior to. Just enjoy the phone.

    I didn't wanna check, but I eventually did. I have a Sammy.
    But did I cry? Goodness, no. I just kept walking along, singing my song.

    There is no way to tell what chip you have before you buy it. You have to buy the phone then activate it and then find it.

    TBH...this chipmate issue needs stop. I have had both samsung chip and tsmc chip and from my experience both had same battery life of over 15 hours of Usage (not the Standby time). Plus I don't notice any issue with performance and both chip works just fine.
    This one is with Samsung Chip.

    Yes. I rely on wifi heavily as I have a 3 GB shared data plan and have 3 lines. I only use LTE when I don't have wifi available and when I really need to use it.

    Mind to share the following setting :-
    1) Do you turn off your background app refresh?
    2) Location Services?
    3) Always connected to Apple Watch?
    4) Do you turn off siri suggestion?

    Sure.

    1. I do have background app refresh off, but only have a few turned on (deliveries App)
    2. Yes I do use location services.
    3. Yes it's always connected to my apple watch 24/7
    4. No. I have it turned on.

    Whole chip issue is nonsense. No way to know how any given chip will perform. Manufacturing variation even with same chip will vary by 3%. On top of that the much higher power consumption screen and radio chips also vary from phone to phone. As will any given battery vary from phone to phone.

    Just use the phone and if you have real issues take it in to Apple to check it out. Don't induce Apple to change their liberal exchange policy because of your abuse by changing out phones till you get that imaginary unicorn chipped phone.

    6s Plus Wi-Fi AirPort Extreme 400Mbps, cable internet 125Mbps. Screen on continuous time 20%, Siri on, most system locations off, Wi-Fi calling on, cellular off. Streaming movies and tv shows, surfing net. GPS on,

    Short answer NO.

    Does your phone do what you need it to do?

    The only ones that do harm are Facebook, stock Mail, and TapaTalk. Usually when I check they've been in the background 1 to 3 hours. Varies. I didn't catch it with that shot. I haven't done a test in a week or so.
    This is now. You see the ones doing background time. I'm only at 84%.
