Nope no issues thus far Alhumdulillah, apart from Siri acting a bit weird and not taking action but that's probably a software issue. This phone is a beast.

Fully agree buddy, the shear amount of power this thing has just blows me away, all that processing tech in something so slim and small. It's more powerful than my laptop and tablet!

I got the regular 6S space grey, you've got the plus right? How's it going with it?

I can see the Apple defence force is here in full force doing their damage control.

Sorry, no way to sweep worse than iPhone 6 camera, poor software, and noticeably heavier device just to include a feature no one will use in 3D Touch under the rug.

It's amazing how hungry android fans have become for another Apple "affair" after so much sucess with the iPhone 6S.

Btw. This article has nothing to do with the kind of overheating you see on your non-iPhone... But nobody will care, Heatgate is already born out of void that makes iHaters brain.

Ouch. This isn't good. May have to throttle down a bit.
When I use my Edge+ recode UT gets pretty hot too. Do hot it sorta burns. Hasn't needed a cool down just yet. But gets very uncomfortable at times.

Maybe this is just a first batch problem?

However apple will fix it soon by an software update and it doesn't take forever to get an update like Android phones.

Nothing about that in all the important forums. Clearly this is an isolated case. So this information will be evaporating soon except in the head of iPhonephobia persons.

Why this site (Phonearena) only talks of Iphone 6S? There are many more phone models today much ahead of this crap. When these blind guys will learn to come out of this fascination about this phone and look otherwise to see what they are missing. As I always say if it is Iphone it is not your phone.

I'm curious as to why the camera is getting hot. The CPU and CPU are nowhere near the camera based on how Apple lays out chips on their PCB.

Now I remember iFixit mentions about some early galaxy device that they thought the metal ring around Samsung's cameras was some type of heatsink, because ta the time, those chips were closer to the camera and they were afraid when the chops got hot, this could cause issues.

I do know when I recorded 4K video, my phone gets really hot around the camera, which is probably why its only allowed to record for 5 mins, to possibly help prevnt exactly what is happening with the iPhone.

But see, the fanboys criticized the Note 5 and S6 models for having timers on 4K recording. Samsung gets blasted for actually creating something prevent a problem and Apple gets loved for not doing so.
