Title: iPhone 6s
Post by: 4D on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 07:45:17
Does anyone know how much it costs to have a screen and battery replaced for one of these? Not my phone by the way! You can guess what happened  :)

I just bought a decent iPhone 7 on eBay for 140 so a 6s would be cheaper if you keep looking. Also you have to consider if your 6s is worth spending 80+ on it

Is it better than the 6? From what I've read it's the same size screen but has a better camera?

Yes it's better all round and I prefered buying a decent second hand one v a cheap 150+'phone from Argos etc

If you are that way inclined the world beating Track and Trace App doesn't work on the iPhone 6.

I just bought a brand new Samsung M31 with the high capacity battery for 190 on Amazon. Bloody amazing phone for the money, sometimes it not worth repairing cost wise.

I broke a phone that wasn't mine, they want the same phone. Think I'll just get the 6s.
I'm an avid Samsung android user  :)

If you use eBay there will be some worth bidding on or Facebook Marketplace

My Iphone 6 is now operating at 70% battery (think I've had it at least 3 years now) and basically needs to be plugged in permanently so looking for a replacement and the M31 looks ideal. The wife also has a Samsung which she loves so perhaps its time for me to shift from Apple. Might wait until Black Friday which is next month isn't it?

The battery life is amazing, I play online games on mine for about 2 hours a day on average as well as web surfing etc and I use about 25% battery a day with that usage, the wife has one and she plays no games just some surfing and usual mobile stuff and she has just charged it after 5 days.

Great screen, great octo core processor with 6gb memory and 64gb storage.

I cannot recommend them high enough, most Samsungs have a 3,100mh battery and the M31 has a 6,000mh and it charges from 10% to 100% in under an hour.

Thanks PV. My usage would probably be between you and your wife to be honest. I listen to podcasts/spotify whilst I am working or walking, practice my Turkish on DuoLingo during the day and the usual chat using Watsapp and Viber etc as well as following Twitter for STFC news and matchday updates etc, but that's pretty much it. Pretty amazing that your wife can get 5 full days without needed a charge!

I would say with moderate use 3 days without charging is easy, although my phone i sonly a couple of weeks old so the battery is in tip top condition, the wifes is a couple of months old and still has similar battery life, Amazon have had some great deals on them recently. Dual sim too and 4 camera on the back with Dolby Atmos, excellent all rounder.
