Have this phone for one week and absolutely love it. I've had the Galaxy S6 for 1.5 years but in the meantime I've tried a couple of phones. I've tried Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZ and iPhone 7. I've brought them all back to the store within two weeks cause I wasn't completely satisfied (especially camera of Xperias). This 6s is blazing fast, feels great in the hand, the silver model is beautiful and it's just the phone I was looking for. I think the 6s is even better than the 7 for me. It's cheaper but has the same speed for 'normal' apps like Youtube, Safari, social media apps etc. I'm sure it'll handle games very well too. Battery life is AMAZING! Seriously, I'm now at 6 hours of usage and 24h standby, of the 6h usage there is at least 5 hours screen-on-time. I still have 33% left! I heard the battery is not that good for this model but it's great when you put location off and app refresh only for whatsapp. Mail is coming in every hour for 3 accounts and Wifi or LTE is constantly on. Really impressive battery life. Camera is great, in most situations it's actually better than the Galaxy S6. Only in some situations when outside and very low light the S6 is better. Also the screen is really bright and true to life. I prefer that compared to AMOLED with fake colors and yellowish whites. The iPhone 7 has 'warmer' LCD display that looks also yellowish, my 6s is pure white. Great phone and I recommend you to buy it.

My personal phone is Blackberry Q5( still a great workhorse) and I use iPad as my tablet.
It's purely out of security features that I prefer them.
Waiting for other BB OS device,but I don't think it would be possible in near future. Waiting for next iteration of iphone and iPad.

Hello,I'm having some battery problems since updating to iOS 9.3.3 I used to get 10h battery each day(with a normal usage)before updating,but now I only get 6h and I haven't even updated to iOS 10!!!:( Is this normal for an iPhone 6s running only 6 hours with a normal usage?and I have my phone for less than a year!!!
I would be grateful if I get a reply,thank you.
The lacj od this expensive phone is, 1. Small Battery capasity, wirh alot of apps couldn't make it. (At least 2500-3000), instead of 1715. No slot memory card addition, 3. Too expensive, compare wirh other product with same function.. Cassing colour too feminim.
sunilmaligehlot121, 14 Feb 2017Apple ram management is amazing is better than Android 6gb ram to load app fast good job appleuh you care for RAM management and from this you judge if android is better or iphone, mmmm ok Nokia 6210 is better because when you drop it down it will not break the screen
Don't judge from one side
War between Android & IOS 2 Different Jealous platform
ok Prepare for the Arrival of Tyzen and judge then
Apple ram management is amazing is better than Android 6gb ram to load app fast good job apple
Anonymous, 11 Feb 2017The Motorola is larger. Try to use your brainLook, for the price they should and could make it better. With iphone 20 maybe.
Unfortunately has no radio am/fm, cover case colour too feminim, instead of 5. Inch, you just made in 4.7inch, baterry sugestion is at least 2.500-3.000..

If so, I would stay with android because then you don't have to learn the system completely new.
Else, try an iPhone and judge which one suits better to you.
Technically, the S7 edge is better, although it is slower but has better camera and display (not because of the resolution, but because of amoled technology)

And I make tons of calls. If I have to reset it 5 times before I get a reception (Vodafone, not something third grade network) the phone is not able to preform its main task, and that is to preform a call. When I put the same sim in a 80 eur Chinese Lenovo, it works fine. And for the body, They told me "it rusts because you have salty hands" Phone worth 700 eur rusts because of salty hands, even when it is 80% of time in its rubber case and does not get reception due to junk antennas. This seems pretty sad from my point of standing.
For the battery, there are thinner phones with more sustain in power. Try Motorola.

1. it has a small battery because it is a small device. It is also pretty thin so there doesn't fit a bigger battery (or do you want another Note7 with bigger battery than safely possible). And a small battery also doesn't mean it is old or cheap. I mean, a smartphone battery, any size or manufacturer, costs about $2. If it really isn't enough (but I don't think so because iPhone 6s gets you through the day without any overheating), you can buy a battery pack
2. Once in a while, I posted a comment explaining mobile processors on Blackberry DTEK60 page. This seems just the right time to repost it. It is a little bit long, but here you go
The most important thing for a processor is the architecture. The more powerful the architecture is, the more performance you'll get per second.
The efficiency of a processor is also very important. It depends on the architecture. The more efficient the processor is, the less power you need per clock. That means you can also overclock your processor further without suffering from heating issues.
If those two are good, then you can scale the performance with the clock speed (those mysterious GHz-numbers, you know). As mentioned above, you can upscale this number as long as you don't have heating issues, but of course this also means it needs more power. So you have to decide between power-usage and performance.
The cores are just for making multiple tasks at once. For example, if a program is made for multi-core, it gives 50% of the work to one and 50% of the work to the other core, if we talk about dual core. But many programs don't have this support and also many don't need it. For example, you don't need that multi core performance for WhatsApp. The most prominent example for multi core use is video-rendering. But there really aren't many programs which need or support multi core on smartphones.
Also, those cores are divided in clusters. In the SD 821, you have 2 high performance cores and two low performance cores which work simultaneously. There are also SoCs like Apples A10 Fusion, where only 1 cluster works at once and the system switches between the high performance cluster and the low performance cluster.
Now to your wrong-interpretation of cores as being the most important thing. These phones you mean are often lower end phones, which have 8 of those low performance cores also used in flagships. But they can't deliver much performance because they are just made for light usage and low power usage. That's why an iPhone 5s performs in some tasks still better than a new low end octa-core device with 8 low performance cores. This "octa-core" is often just there for bragging with numbers and make people think they made a good buy. So you have to see everything from a processor, not just one number.
Also, these low performance cores are much smaller than high performance cores. iPhones perform best because they have less and bigger performance cores. Many other things are also important for performance, like storage speed (where Apple also is the leader with newest NVMe storage) and gaming performance depends on graphics card and resolution (the lower the resolution and the more powerful the graphics card, the better you can play a game. Another example where iPhones are also leading. They have best gaming experience because they have on par graphics cards with competition but lower resolution screen)
