    Has or does anyone plan on returning your Samsung chip iPhone 6S/Plus?
    For most of us, the 14 day return limit is tomorrow (Friday).

    I'm trying to swap my phone at the Apple Store, but not because it has a Samsung chip (it does). Screen has some issues (not the .001% darker than one spot than others that some are returning because of), but legitimate clusters of dead pixels and a shard of something under the screen. Ive been trying to reserve a space gray 64gb att plus (want band 30 too) in store for a week to no avail.

    Definitely not. I'm delighted with my 6s+ even though it has a Samsung chip inside. If the issue turns out to be important, I'm sure apple will do a free recall/replace program like we've seen in the past.

    It's also important to note that while my Samsung phone is "only" benchmarking about 3800 in the Geekbench test, that's about 1000 points higher than last year's 6+. Which had a larger battery...

    Apple has released a statement acknowledging a 2-3% increase in battery life with the TSMC chip. My guess is that percentage is downplayed by about 10% at least, not because I have done the test, or because I have both chips, but because Apple claimed only 9 people had issues with bending 6 pluses. We all know that there was way more then 9 cases, but because Apple downplayed it people accepted it.

    if they admitted a 2 hour longer battery life (which these tests showed with the TSMC) people would go ape **** and it would cost quite a bit to make everyone with Samsung chips happy, by swapping them for TSMC.

    I am on the fence truth be told, here in Canada I cannot return the phone as I have gone over the 30min talk time, here we either have 30 min talk time or 15 days whichever comes first. But I imagine if I was to go to the Apple Store and say I want a replacement because I have a Samsung chip I'd have a fight on my hands (I would get what I wanted believe me) but the hassle wouldn't really be worth it, it's almost like I would have to make up another reason like battery life, random reboots etc.

    Edit: now typing this I think I will return it via online through Apple care, claiming battery life. Which is the truth I am getting 1hr-1hr 30min less than I was on my 6

    I'm returning mine because of the Samson chip. Hell, I'm so pissed that I think I'm going to go get a Note 5 now!

    Do you get rubbish battery life? If you had an i6 or 6+ previously and your new phone is running the exact same settings, do you find the battery life to be dramatically inferior?
    If not, chill. Keep the phone.

    I wouldn't exchange my phone since I got one that's been working perfectly since day one. I seriously doubt there's any difference between the chips that anyone would notice in ordinary use.

    Just went today to get my 6S Plus 128 GB exchanged for a 64 GB AT&T model. Not for the reason of the chipgate, but because 128 GB was just overkill for me and I couldn't justify the price for it. So I went and exchanged it for the 64 GB model AT&T. Apple had some in stock and reserved mine, and apparently it's a week 37. Which I don't understand as that is the week before the launch week. Tested the chip and is TSMC again:cool:.

    How loose is the mute button? If it is only slightly loose then surely you would be better off keeping the phone. I had one of my 6s's replaced because it had a loose mute and power button but they were really loose to the point I thought the power button was going to fall out.

    I know small things like this really bother some but as I said if it is only small. My wife bought me a fancy air freshener when I got my new car and it made a rattling noise, I fixed it by buying a cat back non resonated Milltek exhaust. Now I can't hear anything.

    If you can borrow me some infrared glasses that can see through the iPhone I'll do it for you

    I guess I am in the minority. I have the Samsung chip and have no intentions of returning it nor do I think I am getting poor battery life. To the contrary, I have better life with my 6s Plus than I did my regular 6 it seems. No other issues either, so I will keep it.

    That's actually not what they said. That is what you wanted to hear. Go back and read it again.

    Well the plus models have much better battery life. But I do think this issue should be over now.

    This thing is getting a lot of air time.

    It's going to cost Apple a little.

    Every year it's something. Last year 'bend hate', this year 'processorgate'. For most people it won't mean a thing. Just something getting blown way out of proportion.

    And who could forget the debacle of the 6 benchmarking slightly better than the 6 Plus? That practically brought the forum crashing to the ground.
