    The problem is that you can't guaranty you won't just get another phone with a Samsung chip. I'm telling you, if this whole chipgate conspiracy hadn't surfaced you wouldn't even notice a difference.

    To be honest, I don't think it's that big of a deal. Just enjoy your phone.

    Its up to you. I exchanged my T-Mobile one for an ATT one yesterday and got a TSMC model. Was not the reason I exchanged it but I guess it was a plus.

    LOL time to wake up at 7 again. Sigh. -_-
    If it's that important to you, go for it. But based on what folks have said here, you don't have anything to worry about with the Samsung chip.

    I'm sorry OP but I just don't see going in to exchange a phone over a chip that isn't malfunctioning.

    They're not likely to exchange for chips sake. They themselves would have to download an app on the phone to see which it is! NOT! And what if they don't have your desired chip? The chip is NOT an issue! Chill and enjoy your phone and stop the ridiculous obsessing over a chip that makes no difference whatsoever!

    I have the Samsung chip and all is well. I stressed a bit after reading the posts and downloading the app, but after thinking about it I came to the conclusion that if it ain't broke don't fix it, lol.

    IF there were issues with your device, ABSOLUTELY change it. But over a chip that, had you never seen the article, would not have even known about.....nah....

    I got the Doritos chips and they seem fine.
    Seriously, as long as your device is working well I agree with the others, just enjoy it.

    I have the Samsung chip. It really isn't worth the hassle of an exchange. The phone runs great to my standards. Not sure it's worth the extra few percentage difference. To each their own though. I do hope in the future we don't have to worry about such differences though.

    Don't worry about the chip. If the interwebz didn't blow up about the different chips then no one would even care.

    Don't obsess over it. A lot of these web site tests are not under average conditions. As long you have the size, storage, color you wanted the chip is inconsequential.

    There was an article on a tech site that discussed the issue. Don't remember which since the issue didn't bother me. My battery life is excellent and my phone doesn't get hot.

    mine does get hot, much warmer than my previous 6, i think I'll stop by an apple store soon...I reset to factory settings and started from scratch but still getting hot..

    I would say if you had the 6s, I would say go ahead and do it but since it is a 6s Plus, I think the effect would be negligible. Also, you might have to wait for a replacement.

    Ha.....what is your phone doing when it gets hot? Any particular app or game? Is it in a poor signal area?

    I have the TSMC in my 6s Plus & Samsung in my 6s & I have no issues with the 6s whatsoever. It doesn't get hot & it has great battery life.

    I mean in general, regardless of the app I'm using, it always feels much warmer than my previous iPhone 6, battery life is not bad at all, I'll probably give it more time to see if future updates help in any way...
