First time IOS user on Iphone 6s 16GB (Full time since Jan 2016)
Android from Â“Gingerbread (2011)Â” to Â“Lollipop(2015)Â” (Samsung devices Galaxy Pro and others costing over 20K INR each & Moto devices G 1, 2 & 3 only)
Windows 8.2 (Lumia 640)
******Review suitable for users with following needs only******
Â“QuickÂ” multitasking (Apps starting off where you left them)
Less than 15 to 20 photos clicked in a week
Not more than 25 downloaded apps (1 storage hungry game with minimal play time spent)
Messaging apps used for not more than 2 hours a day
Voice calls at just about 2 hours a day
Music less than 30 mins a day
4G/3G connectivity always on to be able to receive and respond to emails and messages
(Personally have always bought devices thinking my usage will increase but always noticed myself rolling down to just the above requirements once the initial interest of exploring a new device fades away)
***Review of the Iphone 6s:****
Love the touch and feel of the device but adding a case takes away from the appeal, donÂ’t add a case and it takes away some of your sleep worrying about the accidental damage of your device worth over Â“FIFTY THOUSAND INRÂ” (let that sink in a little).
Charges pretty quickly with the 2.1A charger provided, if your version of an entire day is just 9 am to 7 pm then the phoneÂ’s battery life is perfect if you can have it reach 100% charge just by about 8 am.
However, if you begin your day at 6 am with 100% charge and plan to finish up the day at 10 pm, then a battery pack is a must unless you want your commute back home to feel like the climax of an Action-Thriller movie (will he make it, won't he make it?).
No Bluetooth to transfer files to other folks, not a problem as IÂ’ve found myself using Whatsapp to do it over the last few years even before I switched to IOS
Apps open precisely how you let them before exiting to the home screen without lag unless the information displayed last will be refreshed by the app or data usage
Super impressed with TOUCH IDÂ’s finger print recognition speed. Click the home button once like you would to wake the device and thatÂ’s it, not required to leave your finger hanging in there even for microseconds more! It wakes and unlocks the device with just this one swift action
****The Android user inside me has this to say:****
I MISS THE BACK BUTTON at the bottom of the screen as against having to reach out to the top left of the screen or double tap home button for Reachability
The very little songs I retain on my phone, I donÂ’t want to transfer them to the device using an application instead of just having my phone recognized as a USB storage device by my laptop
OTG (on devices without SD card slot) Â– I find it better than using the cloud (donÂ’t forget the data charges) to reduce some clutter from my devices when needed in the long run
If you are a user just like me (after the initial exploring days with a new phone) than IÂ’m sure the Iphone 6s does mesmerize you with itÂ’s petite yet sturdy design, speed and usability. Certain clinks in the armour do show up, but itÂ’s not all about the latest and fastest hardware being available but how well the end result is when:
You touch the screen
Use the apps from where you left them
Without sensing any heat in the palm of your hands
With exceptional voice call quality!
gaurav bigg, 04 Feb 2016Please suggest the best apps to identify caller Id.True caller is not working as good as that ... moreBothering and nonsensical argument. Live with your limited and impractical IPhone, pay more for less and be happy with the (apple) ..
I had many iphones over years,and i can say i am an apple fan boy, but i think this for one reason, it maintaines its speed over time. I had an iphone 5 two years ago and it still runs smoothly. I had the 5s which was even better. The 6 wasnt so much an upgrade from the 5s because it had the same speed. 6s is blazzing fast and it wil remain fast for i think another 3 years.I will remain with the 6s and i will upgrade at 7s or whatever the name will be because i am not that interested in a new phone which runs the same as the predecesor. In my opinion the s variants are much better the the regulars.
Thangja, 11 Feb 2016Iphones 6s have ios9 the one fixed in this from the company so do we still need to update it The latest version is 9.2.1. So if your device is not running this version, you should update.

Anonymous, 07 Feb 2016Battery looks poor on this, 640 Lumia is 2500..battery, and 5inch maybe ill buy Lumia.I have a Lumia 640, Lumia 950, and iPhone 6s and the iPhone has the best battery life of them all actually. It has the smallest battery of the three, but battery management is optimized so well that even with heavy use, it lasts more than a day. On a good day, the 640 is about the same, but with Windows 10, it drops by at least 1/3rd of that. And the 950's battery life is just awful, lasts about half a day. You basically need the convenience of wireless charging with that one so you can charge it all day.
If I may add to the comments below. I had an iPhone 6 a year ago and it was great, never gave me trouble, frequent software updates and of course, who wouldn't love iOS. I must also say that while I had it, it is probably more on the tougher side compared to previous Android devices which I have used. After almost a year
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2016Moto's battery is kitten in the face of iPhone 6S Plus.

Anon, 27 Jan 2016I was an iPhone fanboy up until the 6. I decided to go for the S6 Edge instead (You know, the ... moreI was using Android for a very long time. All the phones used to degrade in performance over time. Software updates are a joke except for nexus devices.Recently moved over to ios and enjoying it.Battery life management,UI,touchscreen fludity is great.Consistent software updates as well
It's about time, market is saturated, nobody wants this as a side phone. But Chap part of it is its Price, why anybody spend so much, for nothing extra compare Z5 G7 HTC X10 all are ever better n hardware software basis, only IOS is left and prestige phone.
sorry iPhone 6s.. i'm still in a relationship with my iPhone 5..
Am loving my new 6s... It is blazing fast, perfect size and weight, just feels right and works flawless! Now for the cons, camera could be better, 16gb way to small, and screen to easily damaged... Accidentally slid 6s a few inches across hardwood and got some superficial surface scratches... :(
P.S. 3D Touch is great and is going to become awesome!
