About This Brand

Apple's latest models, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are considered an incremental change from the previous version. Two interesting new features include 3D Touch Display - a new twist on multi-touch display that takes into account how hard you press on the screen and for how long.  This lets it perform an impressive array of tasks, without backing out of an app.  Apple also bumped up the already great iPhone camera - jumping from 8 megapixels to 12, and adding for the first time, UltraHD video.  One s-series feature is Live Photos. In this mode, still images you take will become animated for 3 seconds.

Comment:
i have had this iPhone for 2 years now. Still works great. I have downloaded many apps and have never had a problem with this phone. I use Verizon and have always had great reception. I use the map and navigation since my car doesn't have these features. Now that they charge a monthly fee for a phone, I will keep this iPhone 5c as long as it lasts. I hope another 5 years.

Comment:
Received the 5c free from Verizon when I was eligible for the upgrade. Downloaded the IOM so to better understand how it works. Linked it with my car radio for hands-free phone conversations and music from Pandora or my iTunes account. Purchased a sturdy case with magnetic latch to protect the screen. Perfect size for my shirt pocket. Use Siri with a British accent. Use a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot for work away from home. Not interested in something bigger. Use battery app to manage charging and improve battery life.
