Does the iPhone 6+ still have any stuttering issues?

    I understand when the iPhone 6+ first came out some people were complaining about animations stuttering once in a while on the 6+ model. Just wondering if that has been subsequently fixed with SW updates?

    Also can we expect the iPhone 6S+ to be better in this department coming out of the gate since it will presumably come with a faster processor that should theoretically handler the rescaling to 1080p screen better?

    I don't own a 6+ so I can't say definitively, but when I looked at one at the Apple store to see if I wanted to buy it--the demo unit stuttered with animations. That gave me a bad impression so I held off.

    The best guess is that the next generation will have more RAM *and* a better processor--so hopefully this issue will be solved.

    I just got mine , new on iOS 8.3 . Yes it stutters at times, more then my 6 that I sold. It was an even trade so no harm. I can let it go because I love the big screen. I think I will get the 6S plus for the smooth performance. It's not terrible but it's clear that the hardware is not sufficient to run this 1080p display.

    I haven't noticed any visible stutter using mine day to day. The only thing I complain about if I were to complain about anything is that it gets uncomfortably warm after heavy use, which is to be expected.

    EDIT: Running iOS 8.3.

    Yes it does, but I'm guessing Apple may deliver a better experience with the upcoming new iPhone.

    Yes. And has issues with portrait/landscape transitions - though that may be an iOS 8 issue.

    Lol my old iPhone 6 plus camera was always stuttering!

    Every time I need to take a important moment/ video the camera just has to freeze. By then that memory isn't captured. LOL

    Totally agree with this, this is a ios8 issue I hope this will be fixed.

    I have some feeling that ios8 is not smooth for the 6+ model.

    Not stuttering here on my 6+ but then I seldom push it and never have over a couple of tabs open at once. Pretty buttery smooooth in my opinion.

    Yes. Worse thing is when you have a heavy web page and are scrolling around it. Massive lag and jank.

    Not sure if it's just the 6+ I haven't used a 6 much.
