iPhone for life
Greetings! It's been a while since i did a post about my gadgets so here's one about my latest phone. I recently had an iPhone 6 in Gold which my hubby gave to me in October 2015. It was a big step up from my old phone which was an iPhone 5c. From a 3.5 screen to a 4inch screen, a small difference in numbers but a huge difference hands-on.
Here is my iPhone 6 in Gold. Nice slim design with a bigger screen than it's predecessors. Fast user interface with the simplicity everyone loves in an apple product.
This was a big step up from the past generations of iPhone's. From a square glass body to a slim rounded body made of aluminum and glass. a 4 inch screen that fits 6 rows of icons and the fluid-like interface ios is known for.
A month later, before I was even getting close to comfortable using this thin as a razor phone, I took a big leap and upgraded to the iPhone 6s. Not that much of a difference aside from a more durable body and faster processor, dimensions and looks were pretty much the same give or take a few mm added in thickness. They also stepped up the rear camera and the front facing camera to more megapixels. Front camera also has a flash feature for the perfect selfies. Another added feature is sub menu's, which pulls up a new menu when you press harder on the icons, not bad but it's a feature I will hardly ever use.
Here's my new iPhone 6s in Rose Gold. Looks a little more pink which I love about it.
I got this phone through Sprint and my other iPhone was from Verizon. They had a good deal so I went ahead and upgraded. Cheaper monthly plan with unlimited data and i can trade this in the the next iPhone whenever it comes out, for free! Based on apple's pattern, they release a new iphone once a year so i pretty much got a good deal since i can get the latest and greatest iphone anytime it comes out. What i also love about Sprint is they paid off my existing contract with Verizon and gave me a better deal with Sprint! A win-win situation.
Here's more side by side comparisons of the iphone 6 and the iphone 6s.

Looks exactly the same. A noted change would also be the 6 digit passcode instead of the normal 4 digits but i think that's just part of the ios 9 update. The fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 6s is also faster than the previous version.
Unnoticeable difference in thickness, iPhone 6s on the bottom

iPhone 6s shot in dim lighting, not that much of a difference as well.
One more thing i also love about my upgrade is that i didn't have to buy a new case for my 6s, since they are similar in size, my old cases fit perfectly.
is it worth the upgrade, for me no, since i came from an iPhone 6. But if you're still using an iPhone 5 and lower generation, this is a big leap in technology from Apple.
