    What you guys think about the iphone 6. Is is not worth it to get it now?

    As per my understanding, 6 is still a fast phone (1gb ram) , does click beautiful photos (only marginal gains in 6s), looks and feel the same as 6s ( with a lighter body and 6000 aluminum).. 6s stronger glass isnt useful as screen cracks anyway if the impact fall is against the screen.

    Also, I tried SE for a week and its screen doesnt justify my use case. Size is good and one handed usage is there but keyboard feels cramped and youtube videos look too small on it.

    My usage is workout apps, safari and imessages all-day, online shopping, some music, voice memos, clicking photos and editing them..

    I can get a new 6 200$ cheaper than 6s.. Is it worth it go for a 6 now?

    I just upgraded from my 6+ to a 6s+. If you can afford it, go with the 6s+. Why? It's very noticeably faster. Touch ID is a billion times faster (huge). Camera is noticeably better (more MP - zooming).

    The CPU is very noticeably faster and the GPU is insane. So it's far more future proof on a massive scale.

    But the BIGGEST? 2GB of ram. I'd be talking with family on Hangouts and go to take a picture, and sometimes both apps would crash. But EVERY TIME Hangouts would have to start up new when I switched back from taking a photo. 2GB of ram is HUGE.

    I'd highly recommend the 6s over the 6.

    Get the S. The camera is better and the TouchID is better.

    If you can afford it, go with the 6s. However, there is no real drastic difference between the two phones. I've gone back to using my 6 from my 6s for the time being, and I do like how the 6 is lighter in comparison to the 6s. Faster Touch ID, 2GB of RAM and 3D Touch aren't bad. But if you plan to keep the phone for awhile, go with the 6s.

    Neither. If you can wait, get the 7. The 6S is the better of the two, but by only a few margins. The 4k camera is overrated in compared to the competition or compared to the 6. 2GB of RAM and 3D touch are the only other noticeable differences. The A9 will be a generation older than the future A10 in the 7.

    Nowadays it really doesn't matter as much...

    Cell Phone companies will pretty much let you upgrade whenever you want... Right now I'm using my 6 Plus and my fiancée is using an iPhone 6. We still have the 6s and 6s Plus, but these phones are lighter and honestly you can't really tell the speed difference.

    I'll ise this phone until the 7 comes out and when it does I'll get rid of the 6 and 6 plus and I'm sure I'll go back to the 6s from time to time.

    In short I'd wait for the 7 if I had to. At this point in the game I would just wait... However the iPhone 6 and 6s are great phones

    The RAM is the only reason I couldn't recommend getting an iPhone 6. Obviously the 6s is going to be faster, take better pictures, and has 3D Touch, but the extra RAM is going to make the biggest difference in actual performance after the next update or two.

    Get the 6S,

    First, 6s is thicker than 6 as it was used the 7000 series aluminum alloy, and the weight increased to 143g

    Second, The Touch ID is not only the recognition rate is higher, but the unlock speed has also been promoted

    Third, 3d touch is very useful, and the camera is better

    Forth, The A9 processor of 6s is more faster than that of 6

    Get the 6s. Me too, when I didn't try the 6s I was sure the speed was not a big difference, but I was wrong badly. The difference in speed is huge, especially if you do a lot of internet browsing, the 2GB of RAM make all the difference and the tabs won't reload anymore as well as some webpages did reload sometime on the 6.

    In every day use, the 6s is a huge difference in speed and I dont recommend the 6 as a new phone at this point especially if you want to use it to browse the web frequently, plus, the 6s have better wi fi signal if you have a very high speed connection at home you will see the difference.

    I don't have a 6s to compare but I can say that I'm so pleased with the performance of my 6 that not only was I not tempted by the 6s, I'm thinking that the 7 will have to offer something really special for me to bother with it.
