Hi guys!
i've returned 2 Iphone7 128gb, one with an orrible yellow and dim screen and the second with a hissing during the video registration.

Now i'm wondering to buy an 6S 32gb with the gift card.

What do you think, can be a good idea or better try with another 7?

I'm sincerely bothered to switch phone every week

Thanks and sorry for my English but it's not my native language :D

Well since it's a subjective question you will get subjective answers and no one can answer for you. I think you will find problems in your new 6s as well. I'd say go Android.

A 6s doesn't come in 32.
Yes 32 and 128 Gb

I'm coming back to Ios after years on Android, bit bored of android now.
Hope to find a problems free 6S, never had any problem previously

My 6s+ runs great on iOS 10. Now that I deleted the facebook app, I'm ending the day at 12 AM with 50% left. Right now, I'm at 1 hr 15 min usage and 10 hr and 5 min standby with 92% remaining. There's no reason for me to upgrade to the 7+. I can survive without the dual camera for now.

I hope returning 2 x iPhone 7 128gb can get you a bit more than 1 x 6s 32gb :)
Buying a watch too maybe?

Anyway, i am on 6s+ and i love it, 64gb version. no hissing here :p

If it comes with ios 10 preinstalled i don't suggest you buying it, unless it comes with ios 9

As far as i read many 6s users are having battery issues still. I even had to downgrade to ios 9.
I have a regular 6s and i noticed a slight improvement in battery going to 10.1 from the beta and it runs just great.

Still need the headphone jack or I would have certainly grabbed a 7. Hanging on to the Apple ecosystem for one more year before iOS 11 cripples the 6s and forces me to another brand :oops:

Perhaps it drank too much soda?? :rolleyes:
... No idea what you are talking about, but it seems I can justify the #troll hashtag on you, it's linked to my ignore button.

What do you need the headphone jack for? Not saying you're wrong at all, just curious, as it comes with the adapter, so I don't see any situation where you wouldn't be able to get around the lack of a headphone jack.

I love iOS 10. No battery issues at all on my 6s. In battery life it's about the same or maybe slightly better than iOS 9. In terms of speed it feels a bit faster, but that may just be the sped up animations. iOS 9 always had that super annoying half second delay in opening and closing apps which is gone in iOS 10. That alone is reason enough to upgrade!

Doubtful that iOS 11 will cripple the 6s. Older iPhones were definitely slowed down by iOS updates due to huge leaps in technology. This unfortunately lead to lots of conspiracy theories about how Apple was intentionally crippling older iPhones, a common belief that is held by many people. In truth more recent iPhones have been much more powerful (especially since Apple started building custom cores) and the impact of new software and features on overall performance has been much less dramatic. The iPhone 5 (released in 2012 running iOS 6) runs iOS 10 like a champ (its 5th supported version of iOS for the iPhone 5 by the way). There is no good reason to believe that the 6s with its powerful A9 chip will be crippled by only its 3rd supported version of iOS.

Edit: fixed typo!
