I love this phone. Super easy to use, and I prefer this over an android any day. I switched to an android operated smart phone, and prefer an iphone over any other product.

I am a huge Apple fan: computers, ipads, phones, apple TV.. we have it all in our house. And there is something to be said about how well the technology is and how well they all work with each other. We have had every iphone since the 3 and I wouldn't think of every going back! Now a 7plus user, I can say that while they are getting bigger and the designs are changing, they are still amazing phones.
The macbooks have been my go to computers for business and personal use for over 10 years now. If you have an iphone and other apple products, it just makes sense to keep your computer the same brand. Everything "talks" to each other and there is no technical issues. They last forever too! I have my original macbook pro from 2006 and it still works! The design has become so iconic, it is sleek and easy to carry around as well. I dont think we will ever not be "apple users"

I LOVE my iPhone 6s. Apple girl all the way!!! I have had this phone for almost 2 years now and I have not had even ONE problem with it. I charge my phone overnight while I'm sleeping and the battery lasts all day. It charges great, the sound is great, the screen and display is great, etc. The iPhone is expensive but it is totally worth it if you're looking for a HIGH quality phone. Plus, a lot of providers have plans where you don't pay for the phone all at once. I'm on Verizon and they have the edge plan so I paid off my phone little by little every month. The iPhone is lightweight and very sleek. I like that it's not as small as the older models but not as big as the plus models. The fingerprint recognition is really convenient also! I could go on and on about this phone but I will definitely continue to be an iPhone user and I highly recommend the iPhone 6s!

I am and always will be an Apple iPhone person. I've had the this iPhone for about 2 years now, but unfortunately there's been multiple issues occurring for me. It will randomly shut off completely even though it's still at 30% - 45% battery life and not turn back on until plugged in. Once it's plugged in it will flash a dead battery until it finally starts back up only for it to still say the battery is at 30% - 45%. It happens frequently, around once a week or so. It becomes annoying and extremely inconvenient (especially when I'm no where near a charger)  considering my phone isn't even dead but it shuts off whenever it feels like it. For that one reason, I feel like I have to upgrade to a new iPhone soon. Even though I didn't plan on buying a new one again for awhile when I first purchased this one.

The phones alright. I have this phone for work and I don't really like having to put useless apps in folders on my screen instead of having the apps but not on the screen. I do get problems when I text where I can't send messages or pictures, it's very frustrating. The phone also bugs out a lot on me, I don't use it much since I do have an android as well. I don't have many apps on the iphone and it's constantly telling me I have no storage. The size of the phone is nice, it isn't too big or small and I can just throw it in my purse or back pocket. There is times when I would be texting or calling someone and my phone turns on randomly, it wasn't even off!! I was just using it. I've used both android and ios and I have to say I do prefer android. Everyone has their preferences.

This I think was my favorite phone that Apple came out with. I love the touch ID feature because I am always forgetting my passwords and that saves me so much time. It is a little on the pricey end, but it is a luxury item. You're paying for a greta quality phone. It's honestly amazing when you factor in that everything you need fits into your clutch. I have been getting iPhones since they came out, one year trying out an Android and I had to go back to Apple because I could not stand my android. I will forever and always be and Apple customer.

I have been using this phone for sometime. I luv its sleek design and fine gold color. I luv its easy UI and also the fact that it’s just the right size. Screen is not too small and phone is not too big. I got it from Apple store with Verizon line. However, lately it is pretty slow and I hate that. Also, if it’s cold the phone switches off by itself even though I had 20 % battery remaining. It probably needs a battery replacement. But I still luv my iPhone in spite of the 2 cons.

I enjoyed my iPhone 6s until it crashed on me and never turned back on. I didn't drop to or anything. It turned off and I thought maybe it was because I was low on battery but it never came back to life. With these phones you have to be very careful as when they drop they can easily get damaged. I love the programing and I love the camera. I like how it has filters on your phone and you can basically do everything on the tips of your fingers! I bought my phone through verizon.
