    It's what I want in a cell phone

    It works reliably and I like that it is a little bigger than my 5s. This is the last iPhone with a headphone jack which is a requirement for me. I'm not sure what I'll do for my next phone. Reception is good and battery life is OK. Bluetooth works well with my car unlike my wife's Pixel which has very unreliable Bluetooth. I can at least disable all the spying on a iPhone which you can't on Android. I have all of iCloud disabled except Find My iPhone. It feels really thin; I haven't put a case on it yet and I didn't have one on my 5s, just GhostArmor. This one I think I'll want to put a case on so it feels more solid. The data transferred easily between my iPhone 5s and 6s using an iTunes backup. It worked much better than my wife transferring her data to her Pixel from her old Android phone. iOS 11 works reasonably well, but there are some bugs. The Message app opens to the previous message instead of the new one when you open it to check a new message sometimes. It also opens to the top instead of one the correct person's messages when you open it through Contacts. Disabling WiFi or Bluetooth through the control menu (swipe up) instead of through settings only disconnects it and doesn't turn it off which is really annoying if you are trying to save battery life and forget to do it through Settings. Turning on 2FA on iOS 11 was a pain and I ended up having to reset my iCloud data for it to enable (which didn't matter to me as I don't use iCloud, but it was still annoying). It kept asking on both my iPhone and my Mac to approve it on another device, but neither device offered to approve the other device and I couldn't find anywhere to do so manually.

    Too good to be true

    My girlfriend's phone was on the fritz so i decided to use my upgrade to get her something decent and less fragile than the overrated Galaxy phones that die before they honor their 2 yr commitment! When we went online and saw Best Buy had Iphone 6s phones for $1 with a 2 yr plan I thought their had to be a catch and they had to be refurbished. I was wrong, their was no catch and it was a brand new phone! All 6s phones of every capacity were all $1. We caught the sale in one of the final days of the promotion and a day or 2 before Verizon eliminated the standard 2 yr agreements we have always known that involve getting phones at a significant reduction or for free with a 2 yr contract. We were too late to grab a 128 or a 64gb model but thankfully she recieved the 32gb model that would have cost us around $26 a month for 2 yrs if we started our search a couple days later! You dont need my review to learn about the product, the reputation stands for a reason, it's awesome but my review is on the experience with using Best Buy to redeem my Verizon upgrade. I believe paid $1 for a premium phone and the shipping was included! Thats about says it all!

    Awesome Phone (coming from an Android lover)

    This iPhone purchase was my first. It was for my daughter and she really wanted an iPhone despite my wife and I being Android users since day 1. Love the update frequency and support lifecycle of iOS compared to Android. You can tell Apple pays a lot of attention to optimization of the platform which makes for a smooth user experience. If there's one thing Samsung should copy from Apple, it's the smoothness of iOS. One thing that worries me is the fragility of the iPhone screens. Seems you always see them cracked. We put the phone in a sturdy otterbox case just in case. The kid knows if it breaks she is responsible for the repair costs. The only drawback on the phone is the lack of any sort of water resistance. I knew that going into it so not holding it against Apple. This phone was on sale and half the price of the iPhone 7 so that's what we chose due to the costs. iPhones are great phones when they're on sale. There's no way I would pay ful price for one though.

    Awful never buying an apple product again!

    I bought this phone just over a year ago in December. The phone is poor quality ND HAS ISSUES ALL OF THE TIME! If it is not my screen having a glitch or freezing it is always something else. I have always been an apple buyer and recently just bought my brother an apple watch, which I clearly see the Garmin watch will be better quality. I have had nothing but issues with my newest apple products not just my phone but my laptop also! My family member switched from apple a long time ago due to the poor quality in the products, I wish I would have done the same. This phone is the biggest waste of money I have ever wasted money on. The newest problem however, is that the screen will not allow me to move anything on the touch screen. The phone has never been dropped, and has a very heavy duty case on it. My future purchases my money will be spent in a different company.

    This phone is great and really hits all the marks. The newer phones are just repackaged, incrementally upgraded, and no longer innovative. I've got an XS Max, an 8 Plus, and this 6s and this is actually the best phone. The X and thereafter have been epic fails in my opinion, Face ID is awful, the Touch ID on this 6s is perfect, ApplePay, the cameras are really not that different unless you're a professional photographer. I'll be buying the older models for as long as I can. This phone is current and futureproof for at least another interation or two of IOS so why waste money on gimmicks? This is a great phone.

    Great iphone 6s purchase at Best Buy

    We had to quickly get a new iphone for our son because his old one suddenly broke. We new that an iphone 6s was more than adequate, especially because we could continue to use our old charger model as a spare. We were thrilled to find that Best Buy offered a good discount for a new iphone 6s - far better than any offered by Verizon. Purchasing the iphone online and getting the phone activated was a very simple process once we inserted the sim card that it came with. The iphone is the best...and Best Buy was the best this time and many times when we need to purchase electronics.

    Disappointed with the return and exchange policy

    With the online price of $360+tax with Verizon plan, I have bought this phone. But this phone was locked to T-Mobile and I was unable to use it with Verizon. Reported the issue to BestBuy. Bestbuy has blamed Verizon. Verizon has blamed BestBuy. Later both Verizon and BestBuy blamed Apple. At last Bestbuy person was able to return and exchange. .but when I got the exchange they charged me to $550 instead of $360 which is online offer. I was totally disappointed and I am still struggling to get the price adjustments between Bestbuy and Verizon :((

    Requiem for a headphone-jack

    My IPhone 5S lasted almost 4 years. I finally had to upgrade when it wouldn’t hold a full charge for more than 3 hours unused. At first I balked at the size of the “new” versions of Apples world-dominating devices...but it’s grown on me. I chose to only get an IPhone 6 rather than a 7 or 8 because I use the headphone jack for the cassette adapter in my car. Yeah, I’m still a bit old school, but what are you gonna do? I don’t have the time or drive to learn all the bazillion new features all these phones have. Still, this is a nice improvement on the previous versions and I recommend it.

    I just dallied with an Android phone before coming back to iPhone. I went with the 6 because the earphone jack vanished with the 7. I passed on the 8 because it is GLASS! Front and back! Skipped the 10 because of the cost. I don’t need wireless charging or a phone that can break everywhere. I want reliability a good but not huge size and Apple’s respectful operating systems. Highly recommended by every user past and present that I spoke with. You can’t go wrong and the folks at Best Buy in Hammond are the best.

    1st iPhone- worst experience ever!!

    Have had the 6s for several years. This past year the screen started freezing- tried everything short of a full reset. I couldn't stand the constant freezing and went to the atomic option of full reset- didn't help. Read about power mgmt issue and saw that it was triggered. I disabled power mgmt and that worked for a while. Now it is back to freezing constantly with each use. Battery was replaced 18 mos ago and is at 92%, so that is not the issue. I will be switching back to Samsung Galaxy s9 or s10!

    Bought this for my wife. I had an iPhone 6S for work and between the work phone and my wife's phone, i have yet to like most of the features. I do not find it user friendly, it is kind of small and seems to malfunction or just refuse to operate. My wife likes it but I hear her cursing it more often than not. I am not a fan of the operating system as it is not user friendly (for me at least). Would not recommend this. Try an Android or Google phone first.

    I went for the 6S plus which is almost the size of a mini pad, but can still fit in my pocket with an otter case. I am also a hold out for actually wanting to plug in earbuds because I am not a fan of Bluetooth. Perhaps, I don’t know what I am missing with newer phones. But I am someone that typically uses his phone as a phone to send and receive texts and emails, take photos mostly for work, use google maps, read emails and look at architectural drawings. This phone does pretty well for all that, by virtue of the screen size alone.

    I've noticed the battery on this phone seems to drain more quickly than on my old 5S. I do you like being able to use the command "hey Siri" in order to text hands-free when necessary. The screen protector on this device has a continual "halo" around the edges, which kind of bugs me. I was told the phone's perimeter is rounded and so the screen protector cannot seal completely 100 percent to the outer edge. I am a fairly basic smart phone user and this phone has proven to be very user-friendly. It has plenty a room for apps and photos (32 GB is definitely adequate for me.)

    What more needs to be said? It's an iPhone. Consistent high quality is a hallmark of Apple and this phone is no different. This was purchased for my high school aged daughter - she's quite happy. My husband and I use Android phones but our kids prefer Apple. Since I'm not familiar with iOS I was useless with the initial setup. The only hiccup during set up occurred when she was suddenly unable to sign into iCloud to complete transfer of information from her old iPhone to the new device. (I hate iCloud, iTunes). The handset itself is great.

    Workhorse phone. This is a simple apple iPhone without the fancy stuff of iPhone 7, 8, x. I got it for my aunty who just needed a simple iPhone . If you do not use a lot of fancy camera function, or do not want to spend money on getting a fancy headset adapter but would rather use the standard headset that every non-apple iPhone 7/8/x person is using for audio, then this is for you. Finally, DO NOT UPGRADE software to iOS 11.X.X. Keep it at iOS 10 to allow bluetooth headsets to work properly.

    I've tried power banks and have not been pleased. The IPhone 6S battery charge lasts me the full day. Battery charge has been the biggest hassle over the cell phones. Not having battery power when you most need it is a good day killer. Great improvement over the IPhone 5C! The phone screen is larger and longer battery life is the best. My husband and I both got IPhone 6S's and could not be happier. My husband is very hard to please when it comes to electronics, but he is very happy with his new phone too. Thanks Apple!

    Though I am called a traitor for forsaking my Samsung Galaxy in favor of the iPhone 6s, I do not regret my purchase. I had previously had an iPhone, but due to wanting a slightly bigger screen, I then switched to the Samsung. Which, of course, was RIGHT before Apple released phones with larger screens. Now, I'm back in the land of Apple, and I'm thrilled. The new iMessage games are great to play, and it's just easier for me to get around my phone. I also have a Macbook Pro, so it helps having phone and computer linked.

    Good phone. But would not have purchased had I known 10 days later you would run a gift card promo for a $250 gift card if purchased the same phone same plan I did, I called and asked to be included and was denied. I have purchase several phones thru Best Buy, but this is my last one. I am very disappointed that you price match but you don't honor a promo within 10 days of purchase. I'm done with Best Buy

    Picked this phone up for a my sister who is on my account to upgrade in size from her SE. BB had a great promotion going on before Christmas and was able to take advantage of that. This phone is so similar to the 7 that I just didn't see the point in paying hundreds more. Takes great pictures, fast, and cases are also cheaper than they are for the 7. Definitely prefer to purchase my cell phones at Best Buy over my major carrier - I think they offer better pricing and customer service - much shorter wait times too!

    Seems about the same as my 5S. Battery life is about the same, even though I thought it said it should last longer. I get about 10 hours before it I start to worry about charging it. The screen is bigger so that helps alot. The biggest difference I've noticed is the phone speaker. On my 5S people would always have a hard time hearing me. I swapped the phone out once for a new one and that same thing happened, but the 6S seems to have a really clear speaker and speakerphone. Overall it's an Iphone.
