Wish I could answer but never had the 6 anything since we went from 5S to 8S

Supposedly a good phone with better speed than just the 6

The main question is the OS version and can it handle the current version easily

Family member on a shared plan has had that phone for nearly 3 years now. A recent issue is that the touch screen has been less sensitive periodically; but I only heard mention of that once, so seems like not a serious or continuing issue.

I have the I-phone SE which is basically a smaller screen version of the 6S. I've had zero problems with it for the past 2 years that I've owned it and it does everything I need it to do. Hope that helps

I ordered it, I'll let you know. Has to be better than this POS ZTE Android which I really don't like.

From "SWAPPA", came today, very pleased, seller classified it as "good" condition, it was excellent condition, like new. Fast transaction shipping, going to leave him excellent review.

Really like the phone, much more user friendly than the ZTE Android which I really disliked. ATT store a couple miles from me, they switched it over, no charge Paid $130 with 16 G memory which should be plenty for me.

Decided to swap out the battery which was operating at 85% fully charged. Apple had a battery/software issue a while back and as a result of that (I think) they offer a $29 battery swap. I looked at a youtube on the replacement and decided I could probably do it but decided not to. While I was there they researched the phone and found it had a new screen a couple months before.

I am really pleased with the phone, probably because the ZTE I had from ATT was a POS with a lousy (IMO) OS.

My experience with cell phone batteries (sample size - 1), is that once they start to not fully charge, and/or discharge to some amount (in my case 65%), they are short for this world... Confirmed by a number of phone repair guys.

I put a new one in my Moto-X (2nd gen) and all is good now.

(Required taking the phone apart...)
