He said his older iPhone is still functioning well, and speed is not yet an issue. He also said he prefers Touch ID to Face ID. He did say, though, that he wishes his phone had an upgraded camera and the ability to have more than one SIM card like the newer iPhone models.
"Other than replacing the battery about six months ago, the 6S Plus does everything I could need to do and it supports iOS 13," he said.
She said she loves to take pictures and videos, and "the design is actually pretty cool."
"Ideally I should have bought an iPhone 8 or X but I refused to pay the price, even on a monthly contract," he said. Still, he doubts he can rationalize paying around $1,000 for a new phone.
"I have no doubt I'd benefit from the the improved processor and better battery life, and I would so love better battery life, but not at any cost," he said. "Realistically, I will probably upgrade to an iPhone 8 or the iPhone XR depending on their contract price after the launch of the iPhone 11. If not, it may finally push me to go to an Android phone, as there always seems to be a good deal to be found with them."
"I currently use an iPhone 7 Plus," he said. "It works great and does what I need it to do."
"There was no reason last year to replace my iPhone 7 Plus, and there's no reason this year," he said.
"Afraid I don't care about upgrading," he said. "I still have a 6S Plus and have yet to see a reason to upgrade. All the apps I use work just fine. I don't care about using the iPhone for photography, preferring my Lumix. If I had to get another phone I would likely get an 8 Plus or whatever the big model is."
"I like my iPhone 6 and will replace it with an iPhone 12 most likely," he said.
"I currently use an iPhone 6S as my daily driver, and it really doesn't show any signs of slowdown, maybe except in the battery department," he said. "It's also getting the iOS 13 update."
He said he's been having issues with "data reception, reliability, and speed" compared to other phones he's used, including his old Galaxy S8, and hopes the new hardware for the iPhone 11 will improve the modems in the phone.
"For that alone, I am ready to pay to upgrade," he said.
"I have my eyes set on the Note 10 Plus, maybe with 5G," he said. "Now that's a nice phone. It should keep me content for at least five years."
