    Absolutely not. I loved my 6 Plus and I love my 6S Plus even more. :)

    It's currently the fastest phone on the market and the best iPhone by a relatively large margin. I haven't even considered returning.

    I've considered exchanging only because there's a sliver of something under the screen and for the att model with band 30, but not returning completely.

    No. This phone is amazing. Fast as heck. I'm loving how smooth it is. Reminded me again of why I love the iPhone.

    I've completely gone over my 6S+ and there's zero defects physically and it feels much more solid than the 6+. No way I'm returning, I love this phone.

    So hear is the thing, lol. I'm not sure if this is how you feel, but this is what I always here from people. You paid hundreds of dollars for a new iPhone, you get it, and it doesn't feel much different than the last one. This is fairly true. Its the same apps, mostly running the same way. And since its an "s" release it looks the same too.

    The thing that made me say I Love this phone and would not be returning it was not the 3d touch, live photos or better camera. Its the speed. This new iPhone is so fast. it makes everything I do on my iPhone smoother, quicker and more enjoyable. Then I add those other things to it and its very cool. If your not a person who uses their phone everyday all day, these smaller upgrades may not be ideal. But for someone that lives remotely on their phone, doing everything on it. its a great upgrade.

    Dont get me wrong I like the phone. The speed is definitely an improvement but here is why im not completely sold yet
    - Touch ID may be TOO fast. I much prefer to the old way to leave your finger on it for a second before it opens.
    - The sound quality on my old 6 seemed better/louder. May be just me need more testing.
    - Vibration is too quiet now. I cant feel it vibrate in my pocket.
    - Thought I would like LivePhotos but seems gimmicky after I used it. Dont see myself using it really
    - Even though the camera is 12mp now I dont see that much difference in quality compared to the 6.
    - Thought reception would be better since it supports T-Mobile Band 12 (Available in my area) but dont see any difference.


    But I do like phone I love 3D touch, cant wait for more apps to start using it. Love the speed and improved RAM (no more refreshing). Most likely I'll keep it but those are just my concerns.

    Definitely not. I cannot go back to my 6 plus after experiencing my 6s Plus. Speed alone is worth it to me.

    Megapixels do not improve image quality. They actually don't have a whole lot to do with it at all. Not at this point. The camera is good and definitely better than it was but it was never bad in the 6 so there's not going to be a giant leap forward.

    Also how in the world is a fast Touch ID bad? It is still scanning the print and is just as accurate as it was. A fingerprint scan should be transparent. Not fail, fail, fail, just enter a passcode.

    Nope. Best phone I've ever had (and I've had most of them)

    Read this - http://www.techforanyone.com/megapixels-dont-matter-cameras/

    Why More Megapixels Is Better

    The higher the megapixel count on a camera sensor, the greater amount of detail that can be captured in a picture. For instance, a 6MP sensor captures roughly fifty percent more detail in an image than a 4MP sensor and double what a 3MP sensor has and four times that of a 1.5MP sensor. For images viewed on a HDTV, computer monitor or even a smartphone, this may not matter much but it has a huge impact on those that actually want to print their images out.

    A higher megapixels sensor can also provide more though. Your camera might have a feature called digital zoom. This is actually a poor name as it is more akin to taking a crop of the sensor data to get an image that looks closer than it is. For instance, a 4x zoom of an image on a 6MP camera is in essence using just the 1.5MP in the middle of the sensor to produce a image that looks four times closer but it has less overall detail than if you used an optical zoom to get four times closer with the same number of pixels.

    Wife and I upgraded from the 16gb 5 to the 64 gb 6S and there is no going back! Almost got the 6s + though. Glad I didn't. Size of the 6S is already a huge adjustment!

    Didnt say it was bad I just said I preferred how it was on my iPhone 6 better. Dont know how yours was set up but mine hardly ever failed it was accurate 98% of the time.

    I was a photographer for years from dark room to digital. I know what megapixels are and can do. They do not inherently make an image better, though. The difference between 8 and 12 is not going to be massive (other than file size) when comparing the images on the 6 and 6s. You don't even need many megapixels when printing large images. 8 is actually plenty. 12 is good. The difference between a good 8 MP sensor and good 12MP sensor is not going to be breathtaking. Actually once you get too high of a MP count it ends up causing more harm than good which is likely why Apple stuck with 8 for so long.

    Image quality is a lot more complex than megapixel count. The iPhone 6 had a pretty good camera before so it's not going to be revolutionary. The difference is definitely there but, let's be real, if you want really good quality, super high detail, print out something large enough to blanket your house in... You probably should be using an actual camera made for it and not a cell phone.

    I was unsure whether to get a 6s or a 6s Plus....so I got both.

    Got the Plus first. Set it up and started using it.

    Then the 6s arrived. I didn't even take it out of the original box. I love the Plus that much.

    Already processed a return for the 6s and the leather case and they're sitting in a local UPS store ready for Monday delivery back to Apple.
