Hi,

So i got my new 6S 64GB on sunday. Love the device has an excellent feel to it and the interface plus features are great. Its a good whole experience. Edit: Battery, Yes the battery. How does it last till 10PM every day with no charge with constant usage?

But i found a dead pixel.
This would still be considered an Out Of Box Failure?
I called digital mobile and the lady said so but when i take it to the store what can i expect, Under no circumstance will i let them send it away to be repaired. I'm not having a new phone taken apart at all..

What does CGA cover just in case i need to quote it?

Cheers

If they don't swap it in store, Ring Apple directly & ask them to send a forward replacement.

With regards to battery life in the OP's post. Couldn't agree more. Not sure if it's the 6S or iOS 9 but battery life day after day on my 6S is just insanely good.

Good news.

I took it to the store and got them to check it out.
Definitely a fault, They tried toi pull the "Ill have a temp phone and it will be sent for repair" promptly told them that wont happen and ill be getting a new one on the spot.
They didnt like that i knew my way around it but became all good in the end.
So i got what i wanted but it took some effort when it probably shouldnt.

Unless something has changed, Apple don't do phone repairs, they just replace them. The down side is it's often a remanufactured device you receive.

This case *should* be a straight new replacement. As has been said, phone Apple direct. IMO you're best to phone them first and get a case number, it makes things a lot easier.

Edit: Nevermind you've already sorted it.

Did you check if your iPhone 5 is covered by the battery replacement program?

Haha, When im paying $1399 for the 64GB iPhone 6S i would expect a perfect device.

Use my 6S+ all day every day, it is my phone for all business calls, facebook, connected to my Apple watch and can easily get 2 days out of it even with the hungry processor!




I know a little more than nothing but not much...
