    My last rant before I go and pick up an android! I am getting tired of the apps constantly crashing on my 6+ scrolling through Facebook and hit a couple videos in a row and BAM crash, or yet when I use tumblr same thing a few videos in a row and BAM another crash! And the part I hate is having to take the time to get back where you were (by scrolling really fast, to pass all the other stuff you have already seen, and BAM yet another crash)

    This is a replacement device yes I have set the device up as new (as I do every time I restore) running the latest iOS, power cycle the phone daily. Shall I need to restore the phone every second day?

    These are software bugs, not hardware issues. Probably Facebook and Tumblr bugs that only they, the developers, can fix.

    What version of iOS are you using?

    Do you have much free space left on your phone?

    I have never had Tumblr crash on my 6+, even when running earlier iterations of iOS8 which had most apps crashing left, right and centre. It's a very well coded app IMO.
    Same with Facebook, that hasn't crashed on me for months. It used to do with earlier incarnations of iOS8 but Facebook got on top of that fairly quickly. Web browsers still crash on me frequently but every other app is pretty good.

    I'm running 8.3 and did a clean DFU install at the time.

    I'm having the same app crashing issues, and my phone is a brand new 64gb 6+...30gb free.
    -Podcast app constantly pausing (is it crashing? it pauses as soon as i go to another app but doesn't close the podcast app)
    -Chrome/Safari CONSTANTLY crashing/closing out right in the middle of my browsing for no reason...and the refreshes, GAWD! This HAS to be memory related or some kind of webpage script clash. Its impossible to browse efficiently on this thing. Don't remember these problems on my Xperia.
    -Non-responsive screen more and more often (is it "thinking" or frozen...can't tell)...happens in all apps (most severely in Flipboard). Reboot doesn't seem to help

    ...this is the purported "Jesus phone"?? Way more positives than negatives, but the negatives are irritating...

    I think somewhere in Facebook setting you can turn off the video auto load/start and it won't crash. That's what causes the crashes (at least for Facebook, I don't know about tumblr.)

    *edit* oops didn't realize this was an older thread risen from months ago.

    Lol no worries, I completely fixed the issue by downgrading to the 6 (never had a problem since)

    The 6+ does seem to be inherently problematic and it will never be fixed. The non-native super-high resolution screen coupled with downscaling and insufficient RAM is obviously the culprit. The hardware just can't cope when pushed, and 'pushing' it is a fairly regular occurrence. It fails to keep up when browsing data-heavy sites and fast scrolling etc. Just a half-baked, if very expensive product.
