I've been going back and forth about getting the newest iPhone but I think this will be the first year I don't get the S series. My 6 is pretty nice and in good shape also I bought some cases for it too. I will probably sit this one out.
You won't see any differences on the outside. It'll all be new stuff on the inside. Hopefully a 12 mp camera, force touch, 2 gb RAM, and a faster chip. The battery may be slightly longer lasting as well. A 12 mp camera would be huge. This would give better resolution to zooming and cropping images. If money were no issue, I'd upgrade just for the 12 mp camera. LOLHad 3GS, 4S, 5 and now 6, I'll be getting the 6S if there's a big enough difference to the 6. If not, I'll wait for the 7
Unless they make the whole thing out of sapphire glass, which has already been confirmed not to be happening, I will not be getting the 6S. Furthermore, not only will I not be upgrading from 6 to 6S, but I will also keep close watch on Google's announcements this fall. If the 2015 Nexus 5 is real, I may finally jump ship.
Curious what reasons you have to leave apple. I'm coming the other way after 4 years of owning Samsung notes. Ready for a change and with some jailbreak tweaks I'm excited.
The main reason is wanting to break free from iTunes, the absolutely horrendous experience that hasn't improved in the last 15 years, and from iCloud, which is also a mess designed to pimp money out of people for photo storage.
There will be a day when I can drag and drop music and photos freely to and from my phone, and I have a feeling that day will be on Android.
You can move photos to your iPhone by drag & dropping without iTunes, really? I am 100% sure that it's impossible, at least in Windows.
It's not painless nor effortless, since it's designed around outdated DRM principles. You can drag songs to the iPhone but not move them back to the PC, with or without iTunes. This crippled system was designed by Steve Jobs at the direction of the record labels, and the only way to "fix" it is to do away with it completely.
The thing with photos is that it's also completely backwards. Windows sees iPhone as a drive, with pictures on it. All pictures are for some reason in various schizophrenically named folders. But you can still move those pictures from the iPhone to the PC. You just can't copy pictures to the phone the same way you copy them from the phone, and that's part of the same DRM issue, which shouldn't even apply to photos.
Sorry for the rant, this is off topic, so I'll shut up now. I will not be getting the iPhone 6S but I may get the iPhone 7 unless there is an outstanding Android phone next fall that fits the bill.
