    hey guys who have the iPhone 6Ss what do you think compared to the 6? How's performance? Any lag with the 6s plus? Games load quicker? How's the battery so far?

    mine started on 78%, ran out after 3 hours!
    not worried though, charging it to 100% now and got all the downloading/indexing done so it should be ok

    That seems really bad. Hopefully it will improve after the battery conditions after a few cycles.

    I've never experienced lag on my 6 plus. I wonder how many actually have, rather than just spewing crap they have heard from others?

    Nearly 6hrs sot now with 22% remaining. Excellent considering i started with 88% out the box. And still beats any android phone even with a few charging cycles!

    Constant lag on my 6+ when scrolling image heavy webpages, switching apps... the list goes on. It's gotten a little better on 9.0.1, but is still noticeable. I personally just hate the app refreshes, and hope the 6S can perform more like my Air 2.

    But, back on topic I would like to see more people's performance and battery life impressions for the 6S.

    The struggle is real, I experience it all the time. Even before I knew it was a "thing" I was annoyed.

    I had the exact same thing on both of my iPhone 6S 128GB. Especially app switcher, app switching, and even the normal switching pages on the home screen was laggy (certainly noticeable when doing it slowly).

    I've configured both with my iCloud backup from the iPhone 6, so I decided to restore them as a clean phone without using backups and they are smooth now, just like it should be.

    "Usage" is not the same as SOT. People should know that by now.

    Sounds very good to me with heavy use.
