Ever since I got this phone — it has been nothing but problems. One after the other. I know it is quite outdated now, but even when I first got it, I had many problems with it. One of my biggest problems with it is the battery life. I can go to the store and come back and my phone is at 10% if battery after previously being at 100%, even with minimal usage. Another huge problem I have with this phone is that it always closes out my apps, even when I am in the middle of doing something, it will crash and go back to my home screen. It’s little things like that that make it frustrating. I wish I would have never given up my iPhone 5s for this one..

This is my third or fourth iPhone and honestly, I absolutely hate it! I love the colors that it comes in though, especially the rose gold, which is what I have.

The cons:
- very short battery life (I’ve had mine for 2 years, not even and the battery is already done for)
- it can (and will) go to no service at any time, which is both inconvenient and annoying.
- it takes a long time to boot up.

All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this iPhone and I only purchased it because there was a promo through the phone company I go through.

I have the iPhone 6s gold through verizon. The size was a bit weird to me when I first got it due to having the 5s prior to that but you get used to it. Clearly you are always going to have to pay big bucks for high tech phones like this. But I can honestly say I do a lot on this phone all day. Reminders, social media, influenster :), shopping etc. There are plenty of apps to keep you entertained as well. I will say lately the factory charger has been disconnected while still connected and I get a pop up saying its not charging that it is not a valid connection. But I have a charger that isn't factory and charges just perfect. WEIRD!

Love this phone.  I have the Apple Iphone 6S in the Rose Gold.  I had upgraded from the Iphone5.  This phone performs like a champ.  The apps open quickly, the camera is great and it's the perfect size.  I can go all day without having to recharge it and I use my phone a great deal.  Price is comparable to the competition and most carriers carry it now.

Do NOT buy this phone or any apple product for that matter. I used to be a apple only kinda girl. The new phones are unreliable, and break almost as quickly as you buy them... not to mention the apple store will try to rip you off in any way possible. 
Take my experience for example, cracked screen, they said the only way to recover my photos is to pay several hundred dollars to replace it. I youtubed it, took a keyboard and a usb cable and unlocked my phone and plugged it into my computer to recover my photos. Avoid apple at all costs. Buyer beware.

I have been having the iPhone 6s for about two years. Personally I find that the screen is so breakable and that is the one thing that I would change about this phone. I have it in the gold color and love it, its so easy to use on all platforms. Sadly, I am actually thinking about having to switch to a different phone after having this iPhone's screen break and have to be replaced 3 times in the last year.

This will be my last iPhone. I've been a loyal apple fan for years but after hearing they purposely slow down older models just so consumers will purchase the new model.

This iPhone 6s is great.  Love that it's not the big 6s plus because this smaller version is perfect for small hands.  I have my service through AT&T so I was able to get it under the Next program so price wise I didn't see it as too much but $20 a month.  Wished the front camera was a little better but overall performance this phone is great.  I haven't had any problems with this phone.  Looking forward to Apple making more improvements to their products which will only make the phones greater.

I purchased this phone because it makes no sense to pay for service and extra fees & purchase extra data when you could pay $45. In 1 year it will have paid for itself. I have had it for a week now. I can not tell the difference in service. I had the 5s and upgraded to 6s.and to be honest with you, except for the size & weight fracture there is no real difference. Fast & it does not stall. The sound from the speakers is better too! You will love it!

I purchased this iPhone used in rose gold on eBay and I love it. I got it for a killer price and I’ve had it for over a year. The camera quality is good and I like the size of phone (it fits nicely in my pocket.) I didn’t give it full stars because I think the newer iPhones that just came out are better and I want an iPhone X

Does anyone know how to put the phone on silent but still be able to hear your alarm go off? Or does anyone know a really good and reliable third party alarm clock app for 6s?

I am currently looking for a new phone. Would you recommend this one? I need a really good camera on my phone for my social media posts. Is it worth the price?
