    Can be done this way. Will not cost you anything either.

    Thanks for the info firedept10. I downloaded and crossed my fingers and got lucky and have the TSMC. Thanks again for the info.

    Why does that make you lucky?

    Because it's the preferred chip, as you well know.

    I am happy with the phone I have. Want to trade?

    I don't prefer it. I never even think about it. All those unfactual articles written early on really got some folks upset over nothing. LOL You don't hear much about it now, do you? Those writers have shut up after realizing the truth. There's not a dimes difference in the chips. If you think so, prove It!

    LOL. You say you don't prefer it, and you pretend never to think about it because you don't have it.

    Did I say I believed the hype? No. You just added that flannel to try and convince yourself there's no difference. All I said was that it is the preferred chip, and it is... fact.

    For example if there were 2 phones left on the shelf, one with the TSMC chip and the other with the Samsung chip. You knew which was which and you had to pick one. Tell me you wouldn't choose the TSMC one!

    Preferred by who? And why?
    I like having the Samsung chip. I prefer it!

    As I understand it, the Samsung chip has better performance at the expense of battery life only when the phone is heavily cpu bound. I think that the vast majority of phone users don't use their phones that way, so which chip isn't important at all. I'd take either one if I had the choice; it really doesn't matter to me.

    Me neither! But I am highly satisfied with the Samsung chip I have. I wouldn't risk trading. Just when you think it's a dead issue, someone posts about it. LOL

    I've had both chips in two different 6s Plus and have had shockingly similar battery life in both. Overblown, just like most of these things.

    How do you get such good battery life. What are your secrets

    On the 6S+, I have the brightness set at halfway and auto brightness is off. I never use Wi-Fi and that's about it.

    On the 6S, brightness is set a little below halfway with auto brightness off and like above, I never use Wi-Fi.

    Email is set to push on all accounts. That's about it, nothing too special about it.

    Grrr! Either I use my phone too much or my phone dies quick. I get about 10 hours standby time with like almost 5 hours of usage. I am a heavy user though

    Here's the best battery life out of all my iPhones. This one is on the 6+. Same settings as the 6S+. Your carriers reception will also affect your battery. When I was with AT&T, my battery would barely last a day a few years back. Once I moved to T-Mobile, my battery life doubled.

    I'm on T-Mobile right now but no service at the moment. I have the sim in and I turned off cellular but if the dots keep moving its finding reception right? How do I keep it from doing that. Maybe I got a defective one I don't get anything close to that

    You can always take it to the Apple store and they can run a diagnostic on it. You can make an appointment online and it will offer to send a diagnostic test to the phone so that the store will have the results when you get there.

    I have excellent reception on T-Mobile everywhere I go here in Denver/Broomfield Colorado.
