Is it worth it to buy an iPhone 6 in 2017? For around 400 dollar at my place.
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.

Hi everyone, just want to ask why my iphone 6 suddenly weak battery? I just update the latest version.

Several more years of updates, higher built quality. My iPhobe 5 survived 5 years of constant usage, I even bought an iPhone 4 in really good condition after all those years. "I feel like they put a bomb into iPhones, buy Samsung" is not an argument
always seems to me that IPhone just put a ticking time bomb in there phones so they break after 2 years leaving you no choice but to get another one. hate APPLE Going to Samsung!!

- my Xperia M4 Aqua was laggy directly after I set it up
- my iPhone 7 is not laggy at all and I never close my background apps
- my iPhone 7 is not deleting data by itself as well
- I didn't say an old android system is laggy, but it isn't safe
- you can't say android handles the ram better. It is known that iPhones have way superior ram management

It´s obvious that iPh... more:D saying hi from kitkat on LG Gpro man you have no idea about what you are talking about right ;) update on android :D running the last update of every single application that i have 150 running application everything is okay :D there is update called android play service if my phone didn't update the patch security the android play services is updated so every single application is full updated there is nothing to worry about it my second device is running android 6.0 latest security update just 2 month a go when you compare android to iphone remember both is doing the same thing but android is more flexible it gives you the choice lagging or getting slow it's about the user not the device i did use iphone 6s plus 128 GB it was laggy and deleting data by itself after replacing it and after using 50 GB of storage i found that ram can't handle too much apps running in the same time beside the storage too many times on IOS 9 force close my apps even if it was the one i am using it :)
look in android i can open almost 60 app running in back ground i go back to my apps open fast as i left it and running my apps side by side i also enjoy to have the choice to encrypting my data or leaving it just it is plus i get more could storage i have 100 GB for 2 years for free on every single device i have which is LG devices so i am using the first free offer and waiting to use the second one i got only 3 gb on i cloud just shame on device almost 20000 LE i am egyptian so it's pretty expensive i am a mac user tell me why i use android simply cus it's fast safe secure i know how to use it on my own way my fav browser my fav gallery app and my fav music player every single app is running i am letting it running i don't need apple to choose my fav apps for me or even can't take my whatsapp data from the device when i broke my screen i own the device apple didn't know how to help me so they decide to send me the team help or whatsapp and whatsapp told me contact apple again :D man there is no way to compare apple it just 1 way to use it android it's your way i can transfer my date between my devices easily and fast and secure i can download my songs and put them in my playlist without pc and i can even play them from my music player without downloading them from my default music player i can also see my gallery online without downloading them from the default gallery app that i have remember man you have to control the technology not the technology is controlling you about my old device is 6 years old :D is faster then my brother iphone 5s :D camera is more sharp and i have a manual control on my second device which is i cannot found it on any iphone and it's better camera then iphone 7 i just tried to compare when it comes to manual iphone lose i don't hate iphone or even like it i just want this peace of technology to do what i want to do in the way i like right that's why i am paying money for have a nice day

I hope we'll finally reach a point where iOS doesn't become much heavier every year so that there won't be laggy messes like the iPhone 4s anymore. And I also hope that Apple finally goes all in with RAM instead of saving a few pennies so that iPhones become even more future proof.

Note that it's a 16GB unit running iOS 10.3.1.
When I typed in the password, the unlock animation wasn't completely fluid. I redid it and it was fluid. Then many notifications came in because I didn't use it for a while. I open the settings app to see which software it is running. The opening animation, the submenu animation and the back swiping animation are all fluid. There is a little delay compared to my iPhone 7 when going into a sub menu, about 0.3 seconds, so you don't notice it if you don't compare it side by side. Going into the App Store, the animations are buttery smooth, but loading the main page takes a couple of seconds (like 5 secs). I go into Clash royale, but I have to download an update to use it. Downloading the update takes about half a minute, and another 5 seconds to install it. Loading the game takes a little more than 5 seconds, something like 8 seconds. Donating cards, reading new messages, everything is fast and fluid, but I notice that the phone starts to heat up a little bit (even though it's not as bad as with for example my Xperia M4 Aqua). I do a test battle, it's not exactly 60fps but pretty close, I guess 50fps. Swiping up the control center for the first time since startup takes 2 seconds to come up, but then it's smooth if I do it over and over. Same goes for notification center. Going into the widget page, it's not completely fast, I would tip 20fps, but using it is fluid again. Opening youtube and loading a video is fast once again. Scrolling through comments is usable, but not as much of a pleasure as doing it on my iPhone 7. Closing the same video is a little laggy, but closing the app is 60fps. Loading the newest weather information takes a second, using the app is fast without any lag. Camera app takes a second to load and a second to focus. Taking some pictures, the first 2 took a second, but the other ones were instant. Opening the photos, zooming in, scrolling through, all of that is no problem for it. Setting an alarm is instant. The phone kept being warm, but not hot like when I loaded clash royale.
So this is how an iPhone performs after 5 years with its last update. I could still imagine using it (like I did a few months ago). But every iPhone before iPhone 5 was laggy on its last update, except iPhone 3GS with iOS 6. So you can't be completely sure if the next iPhones will age that well again performance-wise, but I'm pretty sure as the iPhone 5 was 3 times as fast as the 4s and that's just a whole new level, and then the 5s came and it was twice as fast once again.
