    I bought the iPhone 6S on Wednesday, played with it for a few days and then swapped it out this afternoon for an iPhone 6S Plus. The iPhone 6S is an excellent device, but the Plus version suits me better. As for favorite apps and features, my apps are pretty much the same as they were a few iPhones ago......Tapatalk, Evernote, Dropbox, Slack, Skype, Reeder, iA Writer and others are what I use all the time. The 3D Touch feature is downright awesome.

    Thank you, and you're right. The device is great, but what's even greater is the fact that I purchased the 64 GB model for the price of the 16 GB model. Verizon has a weekend special of some sort that I was unaware of, but grateful to have been at the right place at the right time...

    I said I would skip the 6S version, but then again, I said the same thing in regard to the 5S and the iPhone 5...(laughing)...but ended up getting them.

    I took advantage of the same thing .. Got a 128 for the 64 price for the wife .. Also added a line for my daughter so they gave me 2gb of data extra a month for life. Then I traded in my daughters iPhone 5c that was unlocked from T-Mobile on prepaid service and they gave me a $300 gift card. Swapped some phones around on the account and was able to gift a mint condition 6 plus to my mom and take her 5c and use it for my daughter lol

    Saw Verizon was advertising that this weekend. Was very tempting to switch but I prefer AT&T. But I did jump ship from my Note 5 to the iPhone 6S Plus.

    I purchased it on my Verizon account, but I use it via AT&T. I just inserted the SIM from my AT&T brand iPhone 6 Plus....

    WHAT?!?! You ditched the Note?

    FWIW, I'm all in on Apple now. I love this 6s Plus. I'll be getting an Apple TV to go along with it and my Mac. And I'll be patiently waiting on the next gen iPads and Apple Watch.

    I had problems with my decision. I moved recently. T-Mobile is horrible in this area so I had to change carriers. Went back to AT&T. Then I had to make a choice of phone. I looked at the Note again, the Priv, and the iPhone 6S Plus. I walked out of there with the iPhone. I still can't believe it.

    I completely understand. There's something about Apple devices. I've only used one off and on every once in a while over the past three years. I finally got fed up with the inconsistencies and jumbled mess that can be Android. For as much as I loved it, I hated it at the same time. This is actually the third time I've used a 6s Plus, but for some reason this time it clicked. This phone does absolutely everything I want a phone to do. Plus, with other Apple devices, the flow is simple and fluid. You CANNOT say the same for Android and Chromebooks or Windows PCs. I'm finally content after 3 years with Android.

    The one thing I have always maintained is that I really like iOS devices. Even when I was the Note 5 champion I still really liked what iOS had to offer. I don't know what happened though. When looking at all of my options (and there were many) I picked up the iPhone. Really can't explain it.

    I've always liked them too, but it was like I felt some strange connection to Android and I had no real justification for why I kept using it but being let down. So after a few years there, constantly jumping phones, and the inconsistencies between devices - I decided it was time to move on. I never did much customizing with my phone and really just used the basics, so that was even lost on me. I just don't have the time to mess with it anymore and just wanted something that I trusted to work as it should. iPhone it is! And I've been ecstatic since I fired this up a week before Christmas. That's the first time I've been completely content with a phone in years. I'm seriously considering a full on conversion to Apple and being happy with my decision.

    I still can't believe I switched back. My buddies at Android Central will be disgusted with me. Oh well. I have been doing well with it as it has only been a day.

    I hear ya man. I'm the same way. But I'm absolutely loving it. I'm finally happy. My wife thinks I'm crazy, but she'll be pretty happy when I don't change phones again until the 7.

    I will say this about Samsung, their feature set is unmatched. I love the innovation from them. But the difference between their philosophy and Apple's is glaring. As I read people remark about Samsung Pay it is evident. Samsung Pay is revolutionary to me. The genius behind the technology can't be denied. Even though it worked remarkably good for me, it wasn't perfect. And for some others it was problematic. Apple Pay isn't accepted everywhere. But the places where it is accepted, it works every time. Samsung gives you a multitude of awesomeness that may or may not work. Apple doesn't give you as much, but you can rely on the things that it does give you.

    I switched about two months ago from the Note 5 to 6s plus. While I think the note 5 is the better of the two devices the iPhone completes my Apple ecosystem. Also everyone I communicate with seems to have iPhones so this makes the experience much better as well. All the google apps I've grown to love all work on iOS so I'm not missing anything there. I thought I'd miss customizing my device but haven't so far. One think I feel Apple needs to change is where I place folders/apps. I should be able to place an app in any blank spot and have it stay, not automatically move to the next sequential open spot. Minor gripe.

    All in all I like the iPhone experience. It's very simplistic.

    The key for me is you can't rely on Android to function properly. All Android phones have feature sets that iPhones can't match, however, it seems like something was always failing/glitching/not working as intended. And this isn't just Samsung - it's Android.

    Also, updates are huge for me. Not necessarily for new features, but for security reasons. So I had pretty much resigned to only using Nexus devices. The 6P was great, but had a multitude of minor/major gripes. I just couldn't trust it for the long haul. Not like I can an Apple device. Where my biggest gripe is not being able to put apps where I want to. Otherwise, my experience this far has been flawless.

    what are your favorite apps and features
    The favorite apps you used on your 6s will work on your shiny new 6s Plus.

    These are the apps that I use that were updated to take advantage of 3D Touch:

    Starbucks
    Microsoft Outlook
    Microsoft OneNote
    Microsoft OneDrive
    Skype
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Flickr
    Instagram
    Kik
    Google Drive
    Lightroom
    USAA

    These are in addition to the Apple specific apps. Siri needs to be updated though. It's fallen behind Cortana and Google Now. But that is an iOS in general thing and not specific to the 6s Plus.

    I did the exact same thing and the number one reason why was the extra battery life, I wasn't getting nearly the same battery life on my 6s as I was getting on my 6, I am a heavy heavy user and can easily squeeze 8 hours of screen time on my 6s plus
