    I just put my Nexus 6 on eBay committing to the 6s plus. Not super impressed with it but for me battery life has been great, off charger 7 am back in at 11:15pm usually 30% or better left none of my androids did that. Still searching for useful apps not as many free as android hate to double phones price with software guess that's why people stay with em. Works ok for my use currently

    Can the 6s Plus can do a real whole day and still have 40-47 percent battery life like my Passport?
    There's a whole lot of "it depends" with this. Depends on usage of course. If you're on your phone all day, probably not.

    If you use it like an average phone user, absolutely.

    My last 100% - 1% period was off charger at 6:30am on a Thursday, and hit 1% about 3:00pm on Friday. I used my phone a fair amount. If I was gaming and constantly steaming music or watching Netflix/YouTube it obviously wouldn't have made it as far.

    Did you consider either of the new Nexus devices? It sounds like you aren't 100% happy with your 6s Plus other than battery life. I can completely understand where you're coming from after quite a few years on Android myself. I have an issue committing to one or the other at this point. Each one is missing something that the other has. My Nexus 6P has been off the charger for around 12 hours and I have 30% battery left. It hasn't been a heavy day, but it's still going pretty strong.

    That's pretty good for both you and your battery life. I get to about 36-42 % on my Blackberry Passport for a similar heavy day. (Don't laugh). the Passport works well. Need that battery strong life. More heavy email and text, but talking also.

    yes thought seriously about the 6p, tried the mxpe, the note 5 and decided to do the apple thing this year, bought the 128gb model so I am pretty heavily invested at this time. Have the nextbit robin coming just to see their take on it. Not ready to lose my **** on this apple to go to the 6p, once they downsized from the nex6 I decided to jump ship since they are all similar in size now. Phone seems well made and works well enough, premium price I was ok with but getting gouged on every good app is disappointing. Just going to keep plugging away to see what all the hype is about, but if I had it to do over may have stayed with android

    Why don't you sell the iPhone and grab a 6P then? You should be able to do that with no money out of pocket. iPhones hold their value pretty well. Why use something that you aren't happy with? Not every OS is for everyone. I like both, but prefer the freedom and customization of Android just a bit over iOS. I don't root or anything, just like to have a little more control over how my phone works.

    I'm really trying to like the iPhone and give it a fair shake. Will eventually buy the next nexus, didn't see the 6p as a big jump over nex6 so thought I'd take a walk on the tame side

    I hear ya. Can't wait to pay off my 6 plus so I can switch back to Android, just too many little things I've come across about iOS that I don't like that make horrible for me. I even researched the hell out of iOS and the 6plus, but the things I hate were things that were never brought up in any kind of "switched to iOS" forum/blog posts I found. Even jailbreaking it doesn't really make it any better, for me.
    I guess I should have known though, as I'm the type who likes the complicated. If I was presented with two home surround recievers that had all th exact same internals, one had four buttons and the other had fifty, I'd pick the one with fifty buttons. I'm just an odd duck like that I guess.

    I recently switched from Android (Samsung Galaxy 4).

    The one thing I really love is the ability to know whether a message has been read or not.

    There are two things I find as a major CON to the iPhone.

    First is the alarm. Not being able to change the snooze time to 5 minutes has driven me to seek a third party app and many of those don't work unless they are left running all night. If I wanted to have to turn my alarm on every night I would just go back to the clock I used before I had a smartphone.

    The other is the ability to change text size easily with the volume button. If I have my glasses on, I am good with smaller size type. If I don't then I have to admit I need to hit that button and go bigger. One size does not fit all for me.

    Both of these are features I use every single day and sometimes multiple times per day. They are enough to make me want to consider using the 14 day return policy and go back to Android.

    I've been a smartphone user for about 10 years and have never used an iPhone. Began with BlackBerry then Android and now Windows phone.

    I loved my BB but they lost sight of the consumer and look where they are now.

    Android was very good but each device manufacturer has their own interface and apps on top of the OS and you cannot get rid of all the bloatware.

    I tried Windows phone hoping that with Windows 10 the integration between my PC, SP3 and phone would be seamless. But it seems like Microsoft is not really serious about phone and is only producing new devices for the longtime die hards. They haven't done anything to get developers on board.

    With the iPhone stronghold here in the US both Microsoft and Google are producing their apps for iPhone, sometimes better than the ones on their own OS.

    What are the pros & CONS of the iPhone and Apple?

    TIA for your assistance.
    I'm a former Windows Phone user too...Lumia Icon. Although W10M is the superior OS, you're correct in that it has severe app shortage. I had no problems with integration between my Icon, SP3, and HP Desktop. Cortana helped a lot. With that being said...

    I switched from W10M to Android (M9, I've own Samsung's as well), then to iPhone. I've also owned a Palm Treo and a couple Blackberries at one time too.

    The reason I switched was Microsoft let me down by not including CDMA in the 950/950XL (I'm on Verizon), and I'm not going to switch carriers just because of a device. I went back to Android for a few months, but quickly realized why I left in the first place. Herky jerky operation, added bloatware, and just general inconsistencies within Android ecosystem. Even though iOS has several shortcomings, it offered a consistently smooth experience.

    I also found out, that iOS integrates rather well with Microsoft (except for Cortana, which I miss). My photos upload automatically to OneDrive, and all of the Microsoft apps run really well. The one small exception is that OfficeLens is definitely better on Windows Mobile. It does multi-page PDF whereas the Android and iOS versions do not.

    The camera is a LOT better on my Icon though. The 6s Plus's camera is responsive and good for normal lighting, but under low-lighting it is mediocre at best. There are certain customizations you can not do on iOS, like quick action buttons. It is also not Miracast or Chromecast compatible.

    Touch ID is really nice. It's really fast....some would say too fast, but I like the responsiveness of it. Also, 3D touch is nice too. Outlook is 3D touch enabled. The battery life is really good on the 6s Plus. I can go pretty much the whole day without worrying about recharging. By the time I put it on the charger I'm at around 30(ish)%. The screen is pretty good, but I thought the screen on my Icon and M9 were excellent too.

    The key though is that it integrates with my Microsoft stuff. Better than Android, that is for certain.

    If Microsoft can solve the app problem, then I would probably go back to them. But I am NOT going back to Android... And make no mistake, I am NOT going to get myself a Mac or an iPad either. I love my SP3, and I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (Nook variant); and they both are awesome.

    Pros:
    Build quality
    Ease of use
    "It just works"
    integration with other Apple systems

    Cons:
    iTunes is clunky and unwieldy
    Getting music on and off the phone is awkward

    At the end of the day, this is purely my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

    Plus, if you appreciate design and attention to detail there's just no competing with Apple. And software updates are fast and frequent. If you've been an Android user you'll appreciate that.

    Exactly! Been on Android forever until 6S Plus came out, it is so nice being able to update to newest iOS the day it comes out, love that!! Also, the apps look and run so much better than the Android version of the same app, it's a big difference.

    I just went from iOS to Android and am pretty happy. The biggest issue for me with iOS besides the messed up communication between apps is its now 14+ months since the iPhone 6 Plus was released and they're are still many major apps that I use frequently that have not been optimized. Delta, Comcast, Watch ESPN, Roku, PayPal, the list goes on, that look like crap on my iPhone 6s Plus. The iOS apps themselves have no additional functionality over their Android counterparts, which look great on the Nexus 6p I just bought.

    I've been using iPhones since the days of the 4, but the notion that iOS apps are just better is no longer true. I am having a much better experience on Android because not only are they screen optimized, but they share across the system much better. That and the Google Keyboard being a god send have lured me away.

    Android phones will upscale any app that you install so that they look good no matter what screen size you are using and so they seem as though they are screen optimized. iOS does not do this and so this is why it is up to the app developers to do this and many have not done so.

    I have some apps that use the system setting that I have for font size. Though I have a larger setting for fonts on my iPhone, the setting doesn't always carry over to many of my apps and in some apps, the font sizes are very small.

    There are a lot of inconsistencies on the iOS side.

    I personally disagree with "a lot of inconsistencies on the iOS side", if anything iOS is the most consistent OS on the market today. It just works compared to the other platforms.

    I'm currently looking at the Blackberry Priv. Blackberry has a special place in my heart probably because it was my first smartphone platform that I used, and with the combination of Blackberry and Android combined into one device I will be able to use all of my Blackberry apps and Android apps on one device. I have a lot of apps on both platforms just sitting there. I will continue my research and see if this could/will be my secondary device.
    I do miss my customization and the Blackberry Priv could be the answer.

    My iPhone will remain my daily driver....IT JUST WORKS.

    I still use the iPhone as my daily phone and always will. I still stand by my statement that It has a few inconstancies and a few bugs.

    Yesterday, I enabled hey Siri for the first time. I saying all the things it asked me to and I went to the home screen to try it out, I said hey Siri and the phone rebooted. I originally thought all my reboots were because my 6S+ was jailbroken so I upgraded to 9.2 and the random reboots still happen. My 6S came with 9.1 installed so I never got to jailbreak it and it has done the random reboot as well.

    There have been a few times where I just can't unlock either phone and touches or swipes just don't register. It eventually works after the phone sleeps but that's annoying. It's doubt that it's hardware since both phones do it, has to be software related. There's a thread on MacRumors about this very same thing.

    My 6+ is still jailbroken and it seems to be pretty solids far as any reboots go. I don't remember this phone rebooting at all.

    How comes and your 6S came with iOS 6.1 installed? And how did you arrive to upgrade your 6S+ to iOS 6.2? I'm confuse.

    I ordered my 6S from T-Mobile and it came with 9.1 installed, sorry I typed 6.1 earlier. It started having a problem with losing the signal several times a day so I upgraded it to 9.2. It still loses the signal now about once a week (I've had it for two weeks) but I have no intentions of taking it to Apple unless it never acquires a signal again. All I have to do now is reboot.

    I corrected my error in my above post.

    Now, that clear up my confusion, you previous post is making mention of iOS 6.1 instead of 9.1 and iOS 6.2 instead of 9.2.
    For a second I though things have changed that I missed.

    I'm in the same boat but leaning towards the 6p. The only thing I like more is that SIRI is more conversational. Plus I feel the iPhone has better accessibility.
