iPhone 6S 32GB Any Good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have 2 phones, an old Samsung Galaxy J3 Eclipse 16gb, and a Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB, and both are on the way out (S4 is my main phone to text/call). I have found a good deal on an iPhone 6S on Amazon for $130, and I was wondering if those phones are of any good, and if it would be reasonable for me to keep it for around 2 years with minimum problems. I was also wondering if it would be a major upgrade from my S4, as finding comparisons is fairly hard. I mostly use my phones to text people, take pictures, watch videos, and stream music. On the occasion I will play light games
 

Thank you for your time

Go for an s5, it has better specs and a 5k camera, also android allows for more feature as and you can add your own apps from a pc with a micro sd card up to 520 gb micro sd card. An s5 is my current daily driver and it is £100  or less on eBay.

Yeah, the iPhone 6S should be fine. You'll probably not get the latest updates next year. But that shouldn't stop your phone from working. For 2 years it might just do the trick.

I got an S5 a year and a bit back when my S6 died and absolutely loved it, still one of the best phones in terms of features... Like come on, water resistance, a headphone jack, AND a removable battery. Amazing XD. Not to mention OLED and sd card expansion.

If you decide on 6S, make sure the battery is good (settings -> battery -> health).

It would tell if it is running at pick performance or if it's throttling.

For basic stuff all runs smoothly (some effects and services, like Siri, can also be disabled for further possible improvements).

Should continue receiving all the bug/critical updates for the foreseen future, but might not receive next big iOS update.

 

Had 6S plus since launch, using it heavily with many apps running and many tabs opened, and constant switching between them - time to time get some stuttering.

Changed the battery a few months ago (was at ~80 health) - now it can survive a full day of basic interactions, performance is back to a reasonable level.

Games like Dota Underlords is playable with occasional dip in FPS on high settings.
