with my 5S and 6+ it gave a sense that you were actually touching what was on screen, the glass felt unbelievable thin. Now it seems as if the glass is thicker or it's just the 3D Touch layer, I'm not sure, but it doesn't feel that way anymore. Not a huge deal to me but I did prefer the look to the screen on my 6 Plus a bit more.

What if we were always just touching glass?!

It feels the same to me. I'm pretty sure you're just trying to find something to not like.

Yes the thicker glass was a big letdown for me and I much prefer the almost glazed on look the icons have on my 6+. The 6S+ looks unfortunately like the old un-laminated iPad mini 3 display.

I went from a 5s (still have it) to a 6s, and it feels more flexible to me when I 3D touch! I mean it feels like the glass dips so much I think I'm liable to put my thumb through it ...unlike on the 5s, which feels solid.

What makes you think the glass is thicker?

I am experiencing a few issues where links via safari dont work or respond. Seems to happen on espn and cbs sports the most.

I can't say that I've noticed anything to do with touching/not touching the screen. I haven't got a 6+ anymore to compare but to me the screen on my 6S+ seems every bit as good. In fact I'm happier with this screen because it is perfect in all respects; with no yellowing, shading or blotching. It also seems to register presses more instantly.

Ditto.

Compared to my 5s it almost launches apps before I make contact with the screen. I'm not gonna bother with a protector for that reason.

At the iPhone hacks section.
Before I really just felt I was touching the screen thru the glass but kinda like my finger was inside the screen when I was making contact and I was becoming one with the device through the touch interaction.
Now with the 6S I just feel alone and scared...

It feels a little harder but I like the it. I can feel that this S upgrade is has a stronger build quality. The look of the screen is the same to me. I didn't notice any difference from the 6 plus to the 6s plus.

Hold the 6S+ next to the 6+ and it is pretty easy to see. I suppose there is an extra element to support 3D touch.

My wife and I both noticed right away the screen on the new 6S+ didn't have the same pop.

The extra element is beneath the LED panel.

My wife has the 6, I have the 6s and my screen looks sharper than hers! Perhaps what you're seeing is the difference in the depth of the handset ...because if you can see the depth of the glass, it's not doing a very good job of being completely transparent.
