For many months, I have been thinking about finally purchasing and keeping the iPhone 6S but have not pulled the trigger so far due to many flaws this phone has. The following issues held me back from buying and keeping this Apple device: Samsung/TSMC lottery, dust coming through the silent switch under the screen (upper left corner), screen quality problems, the back of the phone that moves if you press on it near the Apple logo and the protruding camera which I still find very unApple. (the same goes for the new iPad Pro 9,7 inch). Of course, it does not mean that I was just sitting idle and philosophizing "to buy or not to buy": I actually ordered the iPhone 6S at the end of 2015 and guess what... this phone had to be replaced by Apple 2 times, so I basically could put my hands on 3 different iPhones 6S. And I can tell you the following: all of them had A9 chips manufactured by Samsung (not a huge deal but still a bit disappointing if you want to get a little bit better battery life), all of them had screen issues (terrible backlight problems and dead pixels/dust under the screen), two of them had scratches out of the box. So, Apple was great - as usual - and replaced the first phone two times. Every time I had to return it, Apple customer service employees apologized to me and stated themselves that when I pay 969 Euros (approximately 1.100 US dollars), I am entitled to a flawless phone (these were their words). Every time I received a replacement, however, it had new or similar flaws. After the second replacement, an Apple lady kindly told me over the phone that there are obviously quality issues with the iPhone 6S and that I could better try to order one in a few months. I returned the phone and got my money back. Now, I think it is a perfect time to purchase an iPhone SE with the design loved by many that could prove itself over the course of many years as the iPhone 5/5S. - There is no useless 3D Touch feature that is according to some iPhone 6S owners is related to the problem of dust getting under the screen. (go through multiple threads about this issue) Hopefully, dust particles will not be entering the phone through the silence switch anymore: as indicated by many iPhone5S/6 owners, it has never been an issue with their devices. - There is no ugly protruding camera anymore. - We can hope that there will be no backlight issues with the screen. - Hopefully, all A9 chips are now produced by TSMC (which must be the case according to the recent news about Apple slowly moving away from Samsung in favor of the Taiwanese company). Also, let's not forget that the new iPhone SE is cheaper than the 6S (but basically has its most important internals, such as the A9 processor) and has a much better battery life than the 5S and the 6S, which is extremely important to me and undoubtedly to all of you. According to the keynote, it is: - Wifi browsing - 13 hours (5S - 10 hours; 6S - 11 hours); - 3G browsing - 12 hours (5S - 8 hours; 6S - 10 hours); - Video - 13 hours (5S - 10 hours; 6S - 11 hours). The only downside of the iPhone SE for me is that there is no 128GB option available, but I think I will be able to live with that. So, to me the situation seems to be quite clear: I am going for the iPhone SE. And what about you, guys?
