    Yes I own now a iPhone 6s it’s the third one. Two replaced due to malfunction. Buying the iPhone XS plus
    hoping it works better and more consistent.
    The partial list of wrongs of this one
    sound while ina call makes me sound like minmouse and they sound like droop a long
    it comes and goes no matter what is playing the sound
    touch screen when touched pics previous calls on the screen not what I touch again random
    when makikg attachments it freezes going to next screen to select way to send. Text , email , what’s up and others
    this is a partial list and each phone was reformed several times back to a new phones software.
    analog stuff.

    I have been using an iPhone for a lot of years now. My current iPhone is my trusty iPhone 6s+ with 128GB RAM. I'll get a new one when my old one develops a problem.

    I heard a statistic on the radio the other day.. They did a survey on the new iPhone and the survey was a question as to whether you would go into debt to get the new iPhone.

    Over 60% of the people surveyed said yes. Now there is something wrong with people who will go into debt for a phone.

    It has turned into a piece of our lives that now has control over our lives. People who will go into debt to acquire a new iPhone have a problem.

      That's what i have too, debating if it's worthwhile for an upgrade, the camera features are tempting though..

      Going into debt for an iPhone means paying another $30 a month on your phone bill.

      It's the way most people buy phones today.

      I get my iphones for free. Those of you have adult children should ask them whether they are changing to the new iphones. Mine did a couple of years ago (I think to a 7). She gave me her 6S Plus. I got it unlocked. With my xfinity account, I get phone service for $2 per month plus a little data for using Uber or Lyft or checking an occasiona email outside. Otherwise I use the phone at home where I connect to our internet. Works fine and is almost free to operate.

      They have facial recognition as a safety feature for turning the iphone on, what if someone use your face to open your phone while you are asleep?

        Better than cutting off your thumb to open the older ones.

      My 6s finally would not hold a charge so I got a 8 plus. Love it and my old aging eyes like it as well.

        For the new XS MAX now. And I learned a few things on the way.
        New phone and a bit different no home button.
        But what learned was apple care verses insureon what I have had for years
        apple care is a real iPhone always it seems only apple certified parts and such.
        Insurion sorry if it’s misswplled is not apple verified
        so two replacement iPhone 6s Plus phones later I now know why the same issues remained
        money major issue is this.
        Touch acreen becomes instable so one thing it does is tough a it dials f in names
        never knew why other then the digital screen was bad. It’s not just the a screen I was told it’s also the chipset too.
        Apple care gives a new or verifies the whole phone
        they don’t. They can use what ever after market parts they wish. So like airbags bad parts must go somewhere lol.

          Well after reading this thread my iPhone 6 s started having problems taking a charge and holding it once charged it is bent and has been dropped so no surprise it is done.

          My plan will not support replacing it with a iPhone x so unless i upgrade my plan which suits me fine to a higher dollar plan no new phone of any kind.

          So I looked at buying a unlocked phone WOW Iphone x in Canada is 2 grand plus tax so 2,260 for a phone.

          So I have a 205,000 rewards points on my visa card you need 250,000 to buy a iPhone x max with the 500 and some memory i had 250 memory on the old one and it was 70% full

          So all my points plus 405 dollars came up on the screen but at check out that jumped to 675 dollars the tax you know .

          For better or worse I have on order 2 to 3 weeks away a iPhone X max with 500 memory .

          I got my contacts list off my old phone and 2,000 plus pictures moved to my mac book air

          Was it worth it not a chance but I am in the apple world so I pay to stay.

          I am sure it is a good phone and more than I need but I use it every day so i will get the best they have at this point in time.

          Apple is easy to use and good gear but not cheap to buy.

            Garth.......Points aren't worth a thing unless you use them, so all things considered getting an iPhone Xs Max with 512GB of memory for $675.00 is a decent deal. This new phone will make you wonder why you kept the iPhone 6 for so long. Let us know how you like it once it arrives.

              Thats how I felt about the points they can go away if you wait to long .

              675.00 is still a lot for a phone but it is also a decent Camera a watch and whole bunch of things I may never use.

              I liked the screen a lot better picture and your right points like money is a promise of value not of any value unless you buy something of value with it.

            I have a plan for the phones getting new models or costing me 41 per month and it’s oaid off in two years
            traded in my iPhone 6s too that got me I think 150 or two hundred as well. Paid for new case and partial twards the new one so less than 41 per moth
