I really want the bigger screen but don't want to spend 6s plus and 7 plus type money. So is the 6 Plus still a worthy device or is it over the hill and not worth the investment.
Thanks I realize that I'm getting the Verizon one as I'm on Verizon. I imagine the Verizon one has all of Verizon's current LTE bands.
I have the 5s but it's to slow.Yes and no. It's still a good phone and it's got the big screen. Even the A8 CPU isn't that bad, but the 1GB of RAM kind of is a bit problematic. It was pretty smooth on iOS 8 but mine slowed down drastically on 9.x till I sold it. Perhaps 10 is better as it runs well on a 5 and 5C I have. But apps may refresh more often if you're multitasking and I noticed a good amount of frame drops in the UI but other than that it should still be fine and supported for a while longer.
What is your current device? That may make a difference whether or not it feels faster or about the same but larger.
You can also get an unlocked A1522 or A1524, but if you do, the IMEI will likely have to be whitelisted by Verizon. So I would stick with the Verizon model.
One other thing - the iPhone 6/6+ that my family members had dented easily, more so than the iPhone 6s/6s+ since the aluminum alloy used in the iP6/6+ was a weaker alloy. Make sure you inspect any device you get for dents/bends when you receive it and keep the device in a protective case.Used
Hmm, from what I remember the 6 and 6 Plus were only marginally faster than the 5S, where the 6S is significantly faster. If the price difference isn't huge I'd go for the 6S.I have the 5s but it's to slow.
If it's only marginally better I guess I'll spring for the 6s, Thanks for your honest input.Hmm, from what I remember the 6 and 6 Plus were only marginally faster than the 5S, where the 6S is significantly faster. If the price difference isn't huge I'd go for the 6S.
In terms of performance it's pretty much like a 5S with a bigger screen and better camera with OIS.
I will say that the A8 does have a better GPU, but with the larger screen and more pixels to drive it probably evens out. This is why the iPhone SE is faster than a 6S or 6S Plus in some gaming benchmarks, as it's lower resolution for example.
To me, the 6 Plus was plagued being slow. It struggled with 1 GB of Ram. I wouldn't consider it completely outdated, but with more recent iOS updates, it struggles in certain area's. I personally would invest into the 6s Plus, which was significantly better in almost every facet.
Yeah, get a 6s plus if you can.
