    My iPhone 6 Plus was replaced by Apple with the iSight Cam recall. My original was built wit MLC RAM. It did suffer some sluggish movements at time and recently displayed random lock-ups.

    The replacement has TLC RAM. This is much more responsive device than the first one.....MUCH more responsive. I thought I was in the "good" area with MLC. Looks like that was wrong.

    It really is quite a difference.

    Also, the first one would get stuck in landscape mode. I would have to rotate several times to get it to return to portrait mode. This one does not do that at all.......not the first time.

    Oh......when I received this one, I restored it from a back up that I did minutes prior from the old phone. So, the problem certainly was not something that was running on the old phone.

    Just thought those that have one or the other type of flash RAM may be interested in my experience with this result.

    YMMV

    Good to hear you was looked after.

    I've had my iPhone 6 Plus for a while now and have not been affected by the issues you raise.

    One question however ->

    How does one check what type of Ram is in the iPhone ?

    I thought Apple was just fixing the phones with the blurry cameras.

    They are replacing them?

    i'm on my 4th ip6+ and it's still the same. sometimes animations lag, sometimes it locks up (rarely, mostly in safari while deleting history) i checked all the 6+ in apple store and all of them had animation lags (like when you launch and close a lot of apps). iPad air 2 doesn't do it, though. i've always thought and am still convinced that it's because of the scaler and strange resolution they choose for ip6+, flash memory has nothing to do with it.

    Weren't some stability/performance issues tied more to TLC with MLC being more stable?

    If you live far enough away from Apple store or Apple approved repair facility, they can do the express replacement.

    Download Phone Doctor, free from Apple store. Run the test on Storage. If the Write speeds are around 200, it is TLC, if the speeds are around 100, it is MLC.
