    I came from a Gold iPhone 6 to a Rose Gold iPhone 6 Plus and I couldn't be happier.

    It's like buying a new pair of shoes. If I buy Bass Black Wayfarer Penny Loafers every single Fall, I'd be pretty much done with Bass Wayfarer Penny Loafers. But....for this Fall I bought Bass Burgundy Wayfarer Penny Loafers. So....I like Bass Wayfarer Penny Loafers as my Fall shoes to walk from Union Station to my office. They do the job admirably well. I know the fit, I know the quality, I know what to expect. So...for the job at hand, I buy what works for me. I see women wearing 5 inch heels on the same walk and but I'm not interested in 5 inch heels to walk three blocks. I don't envy them. I actually know that in summer, I won't have to deal with bunions. I also know I wont' have to deal with ingrown toe nails. So....my choice is perfect for me.

    I'm not underwhelmed by my phone or my shoes because I pick a different colour. I'm not underwhelmed because I'm happy that what I buy works for me. I'm not underwhelmed because I don't care what others choose. I've got other phones/shoes at home. But for me, both my Bass Penny Loafers and my iPhone 6s Plus are EXACTLY what I want.

    Which is why I buy them.
    You lost me at shoes 😋

    You have 10 fingers. Use a different one. #problemSolved
    Or i can just use the power button. I've registered both thumbs and both index fingers. Would feel odd to use any other finger. Thanks for the insightful recommendation though. You're just too helpful.

    Lil, your shoe analogy is lost on all of us guys. Most of us have wives with closets full of shoes, and we can't tell one pair from another.

    I understand the analogy. And I think it's her creative way of explaining the same thing that everyone else says. You should make purchases based on what works for you. This is an individualized thing, not everyone has the same usage or expectation of a product. To be honest, I'm not sure why consumers think that Apple products are going to change much year over year anyway. The iPhone and iPad specifically seem like universal smartphones and tablets to me. They span so many different types of users and are used in a myriad of environments. To make dramatic improvements could be problematic. One of the things that I value about iOS and iOS devices is that I know what to expect for the most part. Sure, when there are new features, it's fun to try them. But for the most part, I want my devices to be predictable. I rely on them too much.

    I just wanted to drop back in at this point in the thread and thank everyone again for their replies. I've read every one of them a couple times over and really have enjoyed everyone's views and opinions. As stated in my original post, I very much enjoy these kinds of conversations with other iPhone fans.

    I always get the same color but I'm one of those crazy women who can buy 15 of the exact same shirt, all in the same color and still be happy about it. So for me, I spoiled myself by getting a 128GB instead. Upgrading the closet space for the shirts. ;-)

    I'm really excited to get my phone tomorrow because I want to see that Harry Potter magic of live photos. Haha

    Yea... its all part of the marketing scheme, they can't change a phone too drastically in a single year. Wait every 2-3years, then its always a wow factor. On the other hand, maybe the constant dopamine stimulation from external stimuli needs to chill a bit. I heard nature has a huge wow factor.

    I don't think you are any of the above. In fact, you have just out grew your "boy toys". I am guessing that you are in your 30s to early 40s? It is now time to find something else that excites you. Career? Family? Kids? New house?

    I can claim even better! I've done all of that (well similar, my girls are 8 & 12, I'm 42, and been married 14 years and a homeowner), managed to save enough money from my career to retire early and thoroughly enjoyed my techie "girl toys".

    Married 15 years, raising three beautiful girls, great career and great home. Still can't get enough of technology. Still feel like I'm a 5 year old in a candy shop when I think about getting a new "toy".

    What is it that you want your phone to do that would make it more exciting? Maybe upgrading every year is a little over the top. Maybe go every 2 years so you can notice more change? That's what I do. I upgrade on the "s" year. I can't justify updating every single year.

    For some people, sure. Does it surprise you that there are people out there that couldn't care less about technology now, but they used to when they were younger?

    I never implied there was anything wrong to be excited by tech gadgets, at any age. I'm just saying that for some people, their interests could change with their age.

    Maybe at some point, your new device or an iOS update may cause you to feel a little differently. If not, that's how it is sometimes. In the meantime, you might as well make the best of it.

    We are switching to a phone every two or three years, but the issue here is you seem to have unrealistic expectations OR put far too much weight behind a product. I went from a 6+ to 6S and I feel the device is fantastic. Super fast, "3D Touch" is really useful to me, etc.

    The thing to remember is stuff isn't going to bring you happiness. The phone is a tool, only replace it when it does not do what you want any longer.

    If you follow the standard 2 year upgrade cycle, you should be very overwhelmed with how awesome the 6S is compared to the 5S. Bigger better screen, WAY faster performance in everything, 3D Touch, new design, etc. etc... But if you upgrade yearly, then your expectations need to come down. No manufacturer can keep up with human expectations of the moon each year, it's not possible. The longer you wait to upgrade, the better it will be is the bottom line.
    If you wait 2-3 years and are still unimpressed, then you have other problems my friend, lol.

    Seriously. Just got my 6s. Fast! Like Swype had no delays between words or when it's initially brought up on screen. That's incredible.

    Harry potter magic this is. Those live photos, I think I'm seriously enjoying this. Way. Too. Much.

    3D is taking me quite a while to adjust to. Perhaps I'll just ignore using it for now, I'll adapt.

    It's heavy. Like a good heavy. Feels solid like my 5c did. It's got me feeling very confident with the durability. Yeah I'm weird, I'm not with the "Lighter is better crowd".

    And the camera. Usually in my dark room and with flash on, all my photos look very flushed. This looks amazing.



    I think using my 5c for almost 3 weeks after I sold my 6 was a great idea...

    I appreciate this perfect hunk of iPhone.

    Exactly. My grandson shattered the screen on his iPhone 5 and had to fall back to his mom's old 4S. I tried to help him with something, and wow... painful. Fortunately, his mom upgraded to a new 6S, so he got her old 6. #universeRestored

    I like having sex with girls and worrying about and getting excited over people, not some stupid device. If that's what your life has become, please call an 800 number. Like someone said earlier, we don't need any of this. I'm 35 years old. Half my life, there wasn't a portable phone that was accessible to all economic ranks. Other half there has been. I personally hate carrying around my phone. I hate going to places and seeing people's head's buried in them. I'm not into apps, although they have become a necessary evil. I hate when I watch QVC and the hosts say go to my facebook page every 45 seconds. We don't need products. Are they nice to have? Sure. But if it's ******* with your emotions, i'd seriously look into it.

    I have two devices, one is always an iPhone and the other is some android. I used to be really excited about android phones because the manufactures were forced to differentiate themselves.

    However, in 2014 and 2015 it seems like there is this race to the bottom. It's no longer a race to *beat* or even compete with the iPhone, it's like they are targeting the audience that ether doesn't want an iPhone or can't afford one. So instead of making something great, they make mid-tier phones that don't offer anything unique, or take away features that were useful.

    As time goes on I get more and more bored with the android landscape. I was very excited for the Nexus announcement today but the presenter's total lack of enthusiasm kind of ruined it for me. Further, they didn't even bother to demo the stuff they talked about like the fingerprint scanner.

    So I guess OP, i can relate to you in that way. When it comes to my iPhones though I have yet to be disappointed. I've owned every iPhone from the 3GS to the present and they have always been great devices. I really like apple's phones because of the passion they clearly have for them. You can tell when they are on stage that their excitement is genuine.

    I also love that, to me, even though Apple hypes the iPhone in my mind it's always well deserved. I've never seen the ads or the keynotes and then got the iPhone in question and been like, "wow, it really was just a gimmick". I always feel like I get what I pay for with Apple, and I guess now I'm finally realizing I get what I pay for with Android..
