    And it matches my Product Red watch band beautifully. image.jpeg

    Coming from the 6 I couldn't be happier. Battery life is amazing and the extra screen real estate makes using the phone that much more pleasant. One handed use is not as easy as the 6 but it's manageable and my hands are getting used to it more every day. Glad I decided to go big this year!

    I may consider the silicone red case as the leather one looks pretty bad after a few weeks. I ended up exchanging mine for a black one (6 Plus).

    Absolutely love the look. Red is my favorite color. I may have to copy you on this one. I have the red leather on and have had it for over a year and it's a bit beat up. I need the red band now. I bought a third party red band, before they came out with the product red. It's ok, but I really like the Apple band red better.

    They don't match perfectly but they are VERY close and you can't tell unless you stare at them side by side. I had the Red watch band and when I saw they released the Product Red silicone case I had to have it!
    The silicone case feels very nice in the hand. I'm curious to see how it holds up over time but it seems very durable and fits nice and snug.

    I got the 6 Plus last year and loved the larger screen. This year it was an easy choice to stick with the Plus size.

    I've used my iPhone more this last year than I have with previous generations. The large screen on the Plus just makes using the iPhone much more of a pleasant experience in my opinion. Watching videos on You Tube, surfing, playing games, and general app use I find is excellent on the Plus. Also the battery life is excellent on the Plus.

    I'll be updating my iPad in a month or so, and I'm planning on going for the large screen on the iPad Pro for the same reasons I choose the Plus over the standard iPhone. Admittedly I don't need the extra grunt that the iPad Pro has, but its the larger screen thats making it so appealing for me.

    iPad Pro won't have 3D Touch which is strange to me. I've gotten so used to 3D Touch on the iPhone that I don't know if I can go forward buying an iOS device that doesn't support it. I messed around with my 6 and it feels so lacking without 3D Touch.

    Yeah I'll miss not having 3D Touch on the iPad Pro, but I can live without it on that as it won't be used as much as my iPhone. Just wish the app developers would get their apps updated for 3D Touch :mad:

    Looks good! I have the stainless steel and wonder how it would look with the red. Got the product red leather case on my 6s plus.

    I have the red silicone case for my 6S as well. I love it. Though, it isn't as deep of a red as I expected. It's an orange-red not a blue-red. I love how it feels, velvety to the touch. The lining on the inside is also very nice.

    Does it scratch easily, or at least show usage easily?

    Thinking of getting the same, it really looks good. Apple have done a solid job with their silicone cases in general. Unlike the leather which IMO suck. I got burned with the red Apple leather case, really looked and felt gross after a month or so.

    Nice. Do you have a pic of it? I'd love to see it. I wish Product Red made an Apple leather case.

    I've only had it a few days now. But it seems very durable and doesn't look like its gonna scratch. When I run my nails along it it doesn't leave a mark at all. It seems like it will hold up nicely.

    My new 6S Plus in Rose Gold also looks great in the silicone red. Now I need an Apple watch with that matching bracelet!
    And on another positive note, my phone has been working great over the past 48 hours since received. The audio quality both in the speaker and through the headphone jack is the best I have heard after having several phones over the years. And I can't find a flaw of any kind in the screen or the body of the phone. Hopefully my good luck continues.

    That is a nice looking case. Does it slide in and out of your pocket easily?

    Yes it does. It has sort of a smoothe matte feel to it. Feels very nice in the hand.
