Open Forum: Are you upgrading to a new iPhone?

  1. Apple has just launched their latest iPhones, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and that means a whole ton of people around the globe will make (or already have made) the pilgrimage to their local Apple Store to grab the new handset.

    Both the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are decent new devices, with interesting features such as 3D Touch, Apple's new A9 SoC, and a new 12-megapixel camera enticing people to upgrade. The quality of the iPhone's build, even if it hasn't changed much from the last generation, and the cohesiveness of iOS might even convince people to switch from Android or other platforms.

    Are you one of the people that bought a new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus? Did you upgrade from an older iPhone, or from a different platform? Or are you waiting for those new Nexus devices or upgrading to your favorite Android flavored smartphone? Let us know in the comments below.

    And don't forget to check back soon. We'll keep posting our reviews of the latest smartphone releases, including the new iPhone 6s Plus over the coming weeks.

    At first I was going to detail a bit on my feelings regarding the new iPhone, but I think your comprehensive feedback on the subject has covered all the key points. Cheers!

    P.S. I am Groot.

    Yes. I've been using an iPhone 4 since 2011 but discontinued support for apps and a project I'm working on will require me to upgrade to the 6s.

    Only when it dies, gets broken, stolen, or fails to operate as I need.

  7. I think 'Upgrade' is the wrong word, but no.

    According to the spec sheet and - more importantly - what Verizon lists it as on the contract... it's an upgrade.

    When I had the 5S I upgraded back to my Galaxy Nexus so no.

    As a Lumia 820 user, only the iPhone 5S and up would be an upgrade for me. But they're too expensive, even 2nd hand.

    Even if I was about to upgrade I wouldn't buy that phone. Performance wise smartphones didn't really get much better.

    Is this a serious question? I'll assume that it was just asked to rattle our cages a bit.
    Yes I'll get an iPhone but only after I've had a lobotomy.

    Only if it is given to me outright with no cost out of pocket. So no I will not be upgrading to to the new iPhone.

    No thanks. I'd rather get a functional power house than a piece of pop culture.
