    Will the Plus version just always be underpowered?

    Mine is fine, it feels snappier, but I feel like the iPhone 6 Plus should've been this fast.

    By laggy do you mean a few dropped frames in the multitasking interface?

    I just upgraded from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 6s Plus and in all honesty I see no lag anywhere and I'm actually quite observant of that kind of stuff. This phone is as smooth as I've seen an iPhone be.

    Yeah.. I'm tired of the lag claims with no proof. Most of us have our last phone hanging around still. Make a frickin video of this "alleged" lag or just stop complaining. This 6S Plus is BUTTER. As was my 6. But I've heard many a 6+ user talk about lag - so I tend to believe that.

    I forgot to answer the 2GB question. Yes I think it makes a huge difference. I have an iPad Air 2 and now the 6s Plus and multitasking is improved by leaps and bounds. I no longer fear going from one app to another and back. I can now freely fill out forms and look up information without the fear of losing everything because the form page refreshed. This makes a huge difference in the usability of iOS and our devices.

    I think it made a difference. My S still lags here and there, but my non S was terrible, this was primarily after putting iOS9 on it.

    My 6s Plus is very very quick. Much quicker then my iPhone 6 was.

    No safari reloads
    No app reloads.
    Phone is super fast with no lag.

    The 2GB of RAM was a Godsend

    It makes an enormous difference. Reloads, not only of tabs but also of apps, are extremely rare. In fact, I don't think I've seen a single tab reload since I got my 6s and many times I've opened apps such as Music or Podcasts several hours after using them, to find them still in memory paused exactly where I paused them those hours before.

    I have owned many androids. HTC, Samsung and Motorola. Until you've used them. You haven't experienced lag. My 6Plus and 6S Plus perform flawless. Maybe you have a troubled device or lemon.

    Lag is when you touch icons and the device OS moves slow to open up the app. Or when you turn up the volume but the volume goes down then up. Lag is when you swipe down the Notification Center and it's blank for a few seconds then loads the info. I don't experience that with the 6s plus or plus

    No lag here, came from a 6 Plus and the difference is night and day! It's not just 2GB of ram it's 2GB of LPDDR4 ram which makes a huge difference.

    I moved from an iPhone 6 to a 6S+. I notice on the new 6S+ that after the phone wakes, the first app I try to open can take a while. It is a noticeable second or so of no response, and then it will open quickly. Likewise, if I try to move from one screen to another there is a delay, where the screen acts as if it is frozen. This isn't really a problem but it worries me because I never experienced anything like it on my previous phone, and I hope there is nothing wrong with my device.

    Same exact scenario for me. I couldn't be happier.

    The 6s's sale numbers are going exceptionally well for the 'S' year. I think competitors are working hard 24/7 in pursuit of another '-gate' scandal to hurt its sales. Resistance is futile so far.

    Maybe yours is defective. Mine shows marked improvement over its predecessor.

    Uh.........
    Yeah it did. Proof?
    Try opening multiple windows in your safari and do the Same on your previous iPhone.
    No refreshing on the new 6s , always refreshing on the 6

    Bring it back. You may have a defective product. The longer you keep it. The worse it may get.
