    I bought iPhone 4S with iOS 6 few years back and I feel that the shutter speed on the phone is very fast. I used the phone mainly take picture of my kids when they're playing. You know kids are always moving and it's challenging to get a great shot. With iPhone 4S, I was able to capture good shots on them and not blurry, it's like the phone was able to stop my kids and get a clear picture. So, it was a magic.

    iOS 7, 8 are out, I am starting to see that I am no longer able to take pics as good as it used to be. So I thought it could be the hardware.

    iPhone 6 Plus is out with iOS 9, it's definitely a buy. It's a great phone, but again, the shutter speed is not fast enough. When I took pics of my kids when they're playing, there is some parts that got blurry. So I had to ask my kid to stand still to get a clear picture - but it's no longer a shot with fun moment anymore.

    Anyone may suggest?

    When I had iOS 6 and before, it felt like the shutter took forever to take a picture, but once I upgraded my phone to iOS 9, the camera took photos way faster than it used to. If you have slow shutter speeds, you may have HDR turned on

    Look at the shutter speed in the EXIF data of images from both phones taken in the same lighting. Very possible they've tweaked the metering.
