Upgrading my parents from 6s and 6s Plus for newer Tmo bands, newer battery, bigger screen, more base storage, more RAM and better camera. I can see the iPhone 11 lasting 5 years for them.

Will be upgrading from my 6S.
Battery life is numero uno. Second is camera, and third is dual sim.

I like to upgrade my phone. I love the latest and greatest stuff. iPhone 11 Pro is the culmination of the iPhone X design paradigm and the reviews are stellar.

Upgraded from an iPhone 8. Loving my Pro so far, it’s so smooth and quick! Plus the gold is stunning, not too yellowy/bling bling looking :D

I still have 4 hours before I pick up my gold Pro and I’m dying to see it in person! Is it reminiscent of the 5S gold at all?

since "I am not upgrading" is an option I chose that with explanation. I was going to upgrade from the X to the regular 11 simply because it would have been $400 after tax out the door. Battery life and a better camera were the reasons. I have never really checked out the XR so I wanted to see the size and screen of the 11 in person. It look me about 3 seconds to realize I couldn't do the size and would miss the OLED (switched it to dark mode and doesn't look nearly as sharp as the OLED). The Current X/PRO size is the max I can do.

Upgrading from iPhone 6s. I can't pick a main reason.

Reasons for upgrading
- speakerphone barely works
- speakers are not loud compared to friends phones (difficult to share videos in person)
- complaints from people on the phone saying my voice quality sucks
- Audio gets stuck in headphone jack mode
- dated speed
- dated camera in comparison to today's phones
- dated screen
