    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.

    Yes it does come with a base 32 GB. They got rid of the 16 GB.

    I've never had any issues with my 6s. It's a great phone. That said I'm surprised you've had so many issues with the iPhone 7

    I've never had any issues with my 7 but if you don't think any of them are up to your standards then get a 6S.

    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

    And why is that? iOS 10 runs fine on the 5s and 6s+ here.

    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.

    Incorrect. Apple changed this after the September iPhone 7 launch.

    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:

    ... 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!
