never have issues, now running ios 10.3.3 very smoothly

I have an iPhone 5 that I used for 4 years and it still works, except for the volume down button and one of the 3 mics. The volume down button broke because I dropped it into soup, this could also be why one mic doesn't work anymore and makes Siri unusable. But I almost never use Siri. I also think that the volume button could have been changed for free since it was only half a year after I bought it, but I didn't know it.
I later bought an Xperia M4 Aqua, which had much worse problems. It lagged way more than my iPhone, the back was completely messed up with scratches even though I used a case, the storage was too small, and that was when I decided to stick to iPhone. You also hear many problems about Samsung. And the iPhone 6 seems to be a really badly constructed phone because I know somebody whose front cam moved to the left by itself, then the touch IC problem, iPhone 6 plus OIS defect, "bend gate" which isn't as bad as those other problems but was made big by media. But that is always the price you pay if you buy a non "s" phone.
The iPhone 4 had antenna problem, the 4s fixed it.
The iPhone 5 slate had scuff problem, the 5s space grey fixed it.
The iPhone 5 had LTE only with few carriers in few places, the 5s and 5c fixed it.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus had all these many problems, and all of those were fixed by 6s and 6s Plus.
And the iPhone 7 is not a radical change from 6s. I think that completely new iPhone 8 will have as many problems as new features.
You can see a pattern. And the iPhone 6 had the most problems until now because it was the most radical redesign.
That doesn't mean I don't accept what you're saying, and that I defend Apple. No, I think it is really bad how you and your relative were being ignored by Apple, and I can understand why you are so annoyed. After reading your experiences, I wouldn't recommend anybody buying the iPhone 6 (I wouldn't do it either because it is overpriced when the better iPhone SE is cheaper).
But that's not the case with every iPhone. I didn't hear many problems about the 4s, 5s, 5c, 6s until now (and the 7 is too new). And the iPhone 5 problem was not that much of an issue, especially if you bought the white one. And many Samsungs have problems as well. I heard many reports about a Note having big gap dimensions where you could put in a credit card, a Note that has its pen stuck if you put it in the wrong way, of course the Note that exploded, many Galaxy S and S mini that had expanding batteries, almost every phone with Snapdragon 810 that overheated. And it's the same with cars, our car was completely broke after 6 years, engine spoiled, beyond repair (you can see that pattern as well) so of course we would never buy a car by this brand again. I can understand you. It's just sad how Apple handles that 1 problem. And then of course me as a person who has 5 Apple products and never had really bad problems with them and also much less problems than with their Android/Windows counterparts, I of course want to tell you that not every single Apple product has such problems and is so unreliable. I don't want you to buy a new iPhone, I just want you not think like that about every single device by Apple.
My niece iphone 6 also had same problem after 2+ years. Waited at apple service centre for more than an hour & being told motherboard spoiled, beyond repair, advise to trade in for new iphone 7. What I hate most is my iphone 6 still look like brand new, no scratch & now keep for display only. But my Samsung S4 still working until now. Apple sucks... use all china parts & so ex...

My 3 years old iphone 6 suddenly cannot power on when took out from my bag. Sent to repair shop & being told the motherboard spoiled and too expensive to repair, better buy new phone. iPhone no longer durable yet so expensive. Will shift to other brand.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2017Is it worth it to buy an iPhone 6 in 2017? For around 400 dollar at my place. How long will ... moreThis is pretty expensive for an iPhone 6. As I just looked up in my price comparison tool, you can get the way faster and better iPhone 6s for just 430 Â€ in Germany (there is also a sale for Â€ 340, but this is Germany exclusive at the moment). The iPhone SE is based on that faster hardware, without multitouch and a smaller display, and it costs Â€ 300. So if the small screen is ok for you, you should definitely go with SE. In my opinion, it is the phone with the best value on market at the moment. But if you can't deal with SE's small screen but want an iPhone, the 6s is the way to go. You could also look for used phones, where the iPhone 5s and SE have the best value at the moment.
Xyz, 22 Jul 2017Add 50 more and go for 1+51+3 doesn't cost Â€ 450. It costs Â€ 550 which just isn't that great of a deal. I recommend you to watch TechAltars video about why the OnePlus hype needs to stop.

How long will it last?
New update 10.3.3 released. Updated and everything is fast and fluid.
wanda, 20 Jul 2017Which one is best, 6 or SE?SE over 6
6s over SE
Just regard price and specs. SE nearly equal to 6S but cheaper than 6. No brainer.

You dont get any budget or midrange ios devices they just makes flagships. Many people switch from a mid range android devices to iphones and are overwhelmed with the perfomance of iphones. I think if you switch from flagship android to ios there is not too much to praise about except for the simple ios ui.
wanda, 20 Jul 2017Which one is best, 6 or SE?I would go for iphone 6.
Bigger display and better design, perfomance wont be an issue unless u do a speed comparison.

Iphone 7 cannot be compared with m4 aqua but there are strong android alternatives wich perform equally well.
