    The circle effect on my avatar is non-consensual
    Whenever I use my friend's phone (an iPhone 6s Plus), I will invariably activate some kind of 3D Touch feature that I did not intend to, disrupting whatever I was doing on the phone. At this time I usually give the phone back, since I have a nasty (and expensive) habit of throwing defective tech products against the nearest concrete surface. (I personally use a 5c)

    So to me, the phone with 3D touch seems as if it is defective somehow. It reminds me of the flimsy trackpad on my 13" MacBook Air, which is so lousy that I have to disable the "Secondary click (click with two fingers)" function - or I will get random context menus everywhere. (which of course, can never be reproduced in an Apple Store, and so the underlying problem is never fixed)

    You can change the sensitivity or turn it off completely.

    Its user error, not device error.
    And as the nice folks above have mentioned, you can fix or remove it.

    One of the best features. It's awesome to 3D Touch to move cursor while writing. You need to get used to it or disable it completely. It's irrational to say it's ugly because I can't use it.
