Should you upgrade from iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s

Yes! No! We mean, let's not jump to conclusions so easily, shall we? If you've come to this post, it means you're most probably a proud owner of an iPhone 6, and are wondering if making the considerable investment that getting a new iPhone is would be worth it this year...

If I liked Apple devices this would definitely be worth upgrading to for the camera and video recording capabilities alone, assuming that they have improved over the iPhone 6.

I'm not sure bro. I'm not seeing any info about the amount of RAM for the 6S. I'm not really convinced just yet.

Ah, the classic iSheep "You're just jealous because you don't have money" "argument".

Classic Andriod response "Iphone is overprice, low spec, no sd card ,etc". Yet every year somehow iphone keeps outselling every company in the high end smartphone market.

Maybe because Apple is the only OEM allowed to make smartphones on iOS... But YOU wouldn't think of having a Sony, or HTC, or LG, or Samsung, or MicroSoft Smartphone running iOS... Apple wouldn't either... That's WHY they SELL more, they're the only ONE selling on iOS. O.o

I spend more for my Android phones than you do for your Apple products, kid.

My s6 edge plus, looks better and cost way more, so try harder, I never buy an iPhone , I have an iPad Air 64gb, it just because I will not pay way over the top for cheap crap iPhone the only thing that's any good is the CPU but only because it's got a 750p screen and an easy on the CPU OS, I do think the 7420 is better when you look at what it as to run, I.e. A vm OS with a very big skin and 2k display

Its not about whether you can afford a new device or not. Its about trying to get the most bang out of your buck. Apple to me hasn't released an iPhone that hasn't impressed me in years. They are always playing catch up and are still behind.

Typical asshole's reasoning. Just because a person don't buy apple products it doesn't mean they don't have money. You should get down from your apple god status sometimes.

I Love The iPhone 5's Design. They Need To Do A Revamped iPhone 5 Design For The iPhone 7.

For instance, I still own the 5 and it looks frickin gorgeous still. My main problem is that the edges get chipped easily. One drop on the sides and it's going to hideous land. I agree. They need to bring brick- phones back.

I have an 5S and it is sooo hard to make it look fresh, even with a case on i got some wear already ( which is kind of weird, there's barely any dust on case too) like some chips and scratches everywhere.

yeah idk what people are thinking ill take the 5 as the best on the 5s is good but that aluminum scratch to much but the 5 is the best looking phone i wanted a android version of that so bad cause i can't do iOS but dang man stop saying plus on the design...

Yup. I also "wonder" why all the media-propaganda guys keep saying that this fugly phone is beautiful. LOL We all remember , when fist leaks of iPhone 6 appeared , how all the tech media were screaming: "Noooo, no chance....this is fake....Apple would never make such ugly phone with such huge bezels and disgusting plastic inserts on the back"

Yeah, nothing like them flattering images of embellished dummies. Those sure give you the full story. No. The iPhone 6 needs to be experienced in person to be appreciated. Granted, it's not my favorite iPhone design for sure, but it definitely looks better in the real world than in pictures.

The iPhone 6S isnt a significant improvement over the 6, just like the Note 5 isnt over the Note 4. But the S6 was a significant improvement over the S5. iPhone 6S? Is just an iPhone 6 with a stronger case. I wonder what the iPhone 7 will be like. Since Apple only makes one phone per year, to make the next model an "s" model to simply skimp on updating it and charging the same amount of money is really sad. At least with some other OEM's, each phone that comes one year later tends to be a much better upgarde over the previous model. Example, the S5 was deemed as a lame upgarde over the S4. It was in some ways. But the S5 got a better display even with the same resolution, got better cameras, a much nicer design over the S4 and it lost the useless gimmicky S4 features which I welcomed. The Note 4 was a much better upgrade over the Note 3 compared to the Note 5 vs the 4. But the note 5 against at leats has an overhaulled design, more s-pen features and more. The Note 5 is a much more significant upgrade to the Note 4 vs the iphone 6S over the iPhone 6. But if I had a Note 4, I wouldnt buy the Note 5. In fcat I had the Note for since its release, then jumped on the S6 Edge and now have the S6 Edge Plus after trying to Note 5 for a week. The Note 5 didnt feel as good in hand as the Edge, it doesn't look as cool, though it does look cool and i didnt see enough update in features to keep it.I will wait for the next Note. But even with Samsung, when a phone only comes once a year, it seems hardware in one year doesnt progress enough to make upgrading worth it. So why waste money on making a new phone each year vs selling them every 2 years instead?

The 6S is better in almost every single way on the inside. Much better camera, much better front camera, cool new 3D touch that makes the whole OS seem different. A holly s**t much better cpu/gpu and new motion chip. Its a business. You think they want to make you happy by skipping one year and loosing billions of dollars? No one is ever forcing you to buy anything. Not to mention half of USA(I mean half of people on contracts) every year has a chance for a free new phone through their contracts. So why not get the 6S if you get that free upgrade this year? Not to mention you had S6 edge then you jumped on the plus which only difference is the bigger screen. One last thing. Unlike Samsung and every single OEM out there Apple isn't trying to fool anyone with the S model. They call it S and not brand new model cause obviously its just an update with same design. They are not trying to sell you a brand new designed phone. I love it how HTC essentially for 3 years makes the same phone with tiny tiny design changes and internal updates but calls the models with new names each year to make it seem like they actually did something new.

Edge + didn't come a year after the Edge though.

I've read somewhere that only iPhone 6 Plus has 7000 aluminium.
