    Which of these 3 choices (assume all "new") is the best value if buying in a couple weeks (once the 7 is out of course):

    $350 iPhone 6 128gb
    $500 iPhone 6s 128gb
    $800 iPhone 7 128gb (assuming that's the price)

    If you can afford it, I'd go with the 7 as it is the newest and will be supported longer. I'd avoid the 6 as it is already two years old.

    6, its still blazingly fast, and it seriously looks like a 6S and close to a 7

    The 6s. 3D Touch is worth the extra money.

    Avoid the Six at this point. The 6s is a stellar iPhone. And the iPhone 7, well, we will find out in 16 hours.

    The iPhone 6s seems more value for money than both iPhone 6 and 7

    Thanks, I'm leaning towards just the 6s as well.

    I think 6s , it has B12 and B30 support and touch 3D and fingerprint scanner is a way faster + you cannot easy bend it.

    BTW: I read your post and I don't want ip7

    Non-S models typically fade out of support at the same time as the previous S model. So if statistics mean anything, getting the 6S will receive as many updates as the 7. Since you are buying the 6S new, it will be no different than buying a new iPhone 7, except you'll be missing whatever features are announced today.

    Non-S Models (even gens): Strong redesign phase
    S Models (odd gens): Strong under the hood enhancements.

    iPad odd numbers (odd gens) - Strong redesign
    iPad even numbers (even gens) - Strong under the hood enhancements.

    AW - TBD

    What is more important to you? Having the latest redesign, or having a device where the bugs from the redesign are fixed (iPhone 6 Plus button, iPhone 5 battery, iPhone 4 Antennae, iPhone 3G just slow)

    I think the biggest flaw for iPhone 6 was a bendgate.

    New iPhone = new problems.

    I cannot remember a year when I got all the iPhones and I had no problems with them.

    This year I told myself, I upgrade only one line (my line :) ) , try it and if it has some problems it goes back to the store and I don't buy any of them. If iPhone 7 works I upgrade my family and some of my employees. Apple should run for my money. If we pay a premium price we should have a premium device.

    It really ends up being a personal choice, is the person flashy (e.g. raging hormone teenager) or is the person just trying to get a device without having to worry about recalls 3 months in (e.g. suits).

    I'm not trying to be negative towards the iPhone 7, I'm sure it will be a good phone, but I do try to give people a chance to think about the things most wouldn't keep track of.

    It's actually quite a bit slower and build quality is worse. Also, to many a specific look is irrelevant.

    It also lacks 3D touch which iOS 10 relies heavily on for the best experience (such as clearing all notifications)

    Anyone who tells you to get the 6 is giving you bad advice.

    The 6s is the most cost-effective and best price-feature phone of the 3.

    If you don't believe me, then get the 6 and rue the day later on. I'll laugh when you realize later how bad, a choice, the ip6 is.

    The fact that it costs only $350 is meaningless.

    The 6s is quite a bit faster than the 6. The 6s is still winning speed tests against all the latest phones. While the 7 is going to be better obviously, there is still good value in the 6s.

    No brainer, and like others as mentioned above: 6S best value among the 3 choices.

    Still the same for me too @dmk1974 6S
    Cool gimmicks but I bet there will be a problem. I'm going to go ahead and say lens-gate. You heard it coined here first, folks.

    hands down the 6S. There is not reason to buy a phone with 1GB of RAM

    I'll tell ya, I was 100% convinced to stay with 6S. But since I use T-Mobile and my kids each have the older iPhone 6, I think I'm going to be trading those in and getting the 128gb iPhone 7 for my wife and I (and then the kids get each of our 6S phones). In the end, due to the storage upgrade and tax, each phone will cost me a net of $157. I don't think I can pass that up!
