    We haven't got one of these.

    Well i've got a 64gig iPhone 6S Plus.
    For a phone i'm really happy with it.
    Its really fast, my music sound OK, photos look lovely.

    The screen is fantastic, the details and colours are really vibrant.
    The battery lasts forever, i'm only charging it once every two days.
    No marks or hints to yellow, none of my buttons rattle.
    Its got a Samsung chip, who have years of knowledge for producing silicon and it should outlast the TSMC chips.

    For me its a keeper.............

    Finally, some positivity!

    Love my 6s. Running like a champ. Huge improvement over my 6 which felt a little outpaced by iOS 9.

    Not worried by this whole chip business. If it turns out to be a serious issue apple will set up an exchange program like they've done in the past. Nothing to worry about.

    I have the 128GB Space Gray 6S+.

    I like it. A jailbreak would improve things so I'm waiting.

    I liked my 6+ more, but possibly that's because it was jailbroken and I had it set up as I liked.

    But, beyond my normal dislike of the bugout camera, the fugly antenna bands and the lack of black as a color choice, I have no real complaints with my 6s+.

    Originally had 128 GB Space Gray 6S+, realized that I don't use much so I went back yesterday and downgraded to a 64 GB Space Gray 6S+ Sim-Free Model. Couldn't be happier. I do have an iPad Mini 4 128 GB.

    My 6s Plus 128GB Rose Gold is perfect. I've been lucky, with no real issues with any iPhone I've ever had, and I've had most every one since the original in 2007.

    I have the space gray 64 GB 6s Plus. I definitely like this phone. I was coming from a 64gb space gray iPhone 6 so I was very Leary of the size and heft. However I have gotten used to this phone in a short amount of time as people told me I would.

    The screen is immaculant. The display size is perfect. The camera is great. The A9 is a monster whether it's Samsung or TSMC LOL.

    just an overall wonderful phone. Definitely was worth the upgrade

    I have an iPhone 6, 64GB in space grey. This is my first iPhone having used android since its inception, and I really like the 6.
    It does what I want, when I want it to. And iMessage, come on. How great is iMessage?! And I don't even have any other Apple devices. Safari is lightning fast in 9.0.2 with Freedom content blocker. And battery life is leaps and bounds ahead of what I've gotten with any rooted/optimised android device; 16 hours of screen on time is not uncommon.

    Digging my 6S 64G SG...

    The whites aren't yellow,
    There aren't any pressure point or other blemishes,
    No marks, scuffs, or dead pixels,
    No scratches, shadows or dark spots,
    It doesn't stutter, pause, freeze, or lag,
    It doesn't randomly reboot/respring/re-anything,
    No snaps, crackles, or pops from the speaker or headphone jack,
    It doesn't make fart noises when I squeeze it there,
    It doesn't overheat or rattle,
    The Mute switch is quiet,
    The home button isn't loud,
    Touch ID is just right,
    No weird bloom in camera or poor images,
    It's 62.5% better than an old Android flagship,
    It only stops making sounds when I want it to,
    It's as equally slippery as every other color,
    iMessage works like iMessage,
    I've got Wi-Fi calling and 22G Unlimited Data and snappy speeds,
    It arrived sooner than expected and there were return instructions/label/tape in the box,
    3D Touch is actually, unexpectedly useful and uniquely pleasing to use,
    And thank goodness I don't have that god-awful battery sucking, overheating Samsung chip in it.​

    :cool:

    Silver iPhone 6S 64GB.

    Love it so far, it's very fast and the camera is excellent. Only thing I wish it had was a bigger battery and turbo charge abilities but maybe next year haha

    I love my phone. I upgraded from a 16gb 5S to a 64gb gold 6S+. The phone is beautiful. It's big (but not too big), the screen is bright & crystal clear, it's super-fast and the battery lasts forever (compared to my old phone)! With the extra storage capacity I don't have to constantly delete my music, apps & photos!

    I don't care about the teeny faint pressure dot that I'd never have noticed if I hadn't read about it here and I don't care which chip I have. Unless there's a legit recall, you can pry this phone from my cold, dead hands.

    Loving my 64gb Space Gray 6S+!!! The display is beautiful and crisp, the camera is absolutely great, the battery is better than I expected, and the phone doesn't exhibit any of the blemish, tint or heat issues I've read about. So really happy I got it!!!

    It's a bit better than my 6 was, so I'm happy. Most importantly, it's much faster.

    Moved from 6 plus 128 GB SG to a 6s plus 128 GB SG on Next 12/20 program. Received on 9/25, at 2:20 PM via UPS. Ordered from Apple Store App ordered 3:04 AM. Returned old phone to AT&T via USPS. Everything went like clockwork, order, shipping, return.

    Set up from iCloud backup, no issues. Battery life great, no flaws, runs as advertised. Love all the new features, and speed. A textbook experience from beginning to end. If there was one thing I would want, it's for price to be half what it is. That's it.

    I have the 64gb Rose Gold 6s Plus and I love it. I will admit I have OCD and started getting sucked into the whole "chipgate" thing when I found out I had the Samsung but it's going on 2 days now since a full charge and my battery is still at 30% so I'm letting it go. I don't have any heat issues, my screen is perfect with no dead pixels, the camera is amazing compared to my 6 Plus which was on the recall list but I never got around to getting replaced. The only issue I have is the 50 million pointless thread on battery life and "chipgate". :)

    I went to the 6s Plus from the 6 and was on the fence about keeping it. I'm glad I did. My phone has been great, no problems for me so far.

    6s 64gb solid iPhone. Neat and clean phone. Every aspect of phone working perfectly. I wish Apple produces iPhone is different sizes as well. Like 5s with all new specs and other sizes too.

    Space gray 128gb 6s Plus. I'm happy with mine also. Screen lighting is perfectly even, color temp is great, and has no light bleed. This is the phone that Apple should have released last year.

    I came back to iOS last year after years with Android, but ended up selling my 6 Plus due to apps refreshing. I usually swap phones every couple of months and have recently had 2 Galaxy S6 Edges, a Nexus 6, and still have my Note 5 that will be going up for sale pretty soon. With the upgraded SoC, camera, and 2 gigs of ram, these devices are very robust.

    I hope it cures my itch to swap devices so often. Not to mention that it is the perfect compliment to my iPad Air 2.

    I'm not a device swapper just a gadget addict. I always have my latest iPhone and usually an android for fun use. In the last 3 months alone I've had the 6 plus and 6s plus, an LG 3, 4 and Flex 2, a Note 5 (only Samsung every worth owning) and Nexus 6. I appreciate android but as I said, they are for fun use only. Nothing will ever replace my iPhone. :)

    That being said yesterday I posted how happy I was with my phone... lo and behold last night I was using Waze and the sound completely faded. Sounded like I had put a headset in but I hadn't. Then this morning I wake up to a dead phone. I knew it had at least 80% when I went to sleep last night. I ended up falling asleep again, woke up an hour later and it's still dead. Took me half an hour to get it up and running again. Called the Apple store in Lancaster, PA and for the first time since they were released they had them in stock (bought the first one in Townson, MD and was grateful not to have to make that drive again). I was very specific in telling them I wanted the global unlocked sim free version (A1634) and he assured me he had it. Left there with the same model I was exchanging (A1687 with the dreaded Samsung chip) after being told there was none of the others left even though I reserved one. And I've only been home a couple hours and I'm starting to have heat issues I didn't have with the first one. Calling Apple first thing in the morning to complain and figure out what to do next. I honestly still don't care which chip I get I just want a phone that works the way it's supposed to.
