Does TNT allow depot collection? Will it be open Saturday? Weekend waiting is torturous.

Yup, although now it says delivery on the 6th, its been there at HongKong for a while. Hong Kong customs are slow, and I mean SLOW! I am not sure with tnt, but they might be, as they do Saturday Delivery for people who missed theirs on Friday.

From my experience last year I remember there was no update on Sat and Sunday and then on Momday TNT showed out for delivery. So you might just be fine.

How many here have upgraded from 6 or 6 plus and what is their experience so far? Worth the jump from 6 or 6 plus?

sidders80: How many here have upgraded from 6 or 6 plus and what is their experience so far? Worth the jump from 6 or 6 plus?


I have never been one to get an S phone but circumstances (i.e. following a cracked screen on my IP6 and needing a phone whilst it's repaired etc - I normally go with a 2 year upgrade cycle) led to me getting a 6S. You also need to bear in mind that due to a series of bungles from Spark, it agreed to compensate me so that I ended up effectively getting the 6S for considerably cheaper than its RRP.

There's a review on phonearena.com of the 6S that captures my feeling on it. Perhaps more than any other IPhone that I have had, this one impresses me because it is near the top of almost everything that matters to me amongst smartphones of this generation. I think 3d touch is largely a gimmick at this stage but love how the amazing new chip has made what was already a fast phone even faster and smoother. Touch ID now unlocks the phone so quickly that even a light tap of the button using my thumb unlocks the phone -- I actually have to train myself to tap on the home button using a finger if all I want to do is sneak a peak at the notifications. The Wifi and LTE speeds on the 6 were already excellent and on the 6S they are even better.

Whether it's "worth it" depends on how much money you have and how much you are prepared to invest in a phone on an annual basis. I was perfectly happy with my 6 but do feel that the 6S has added some extra gloss onto my daily experience with the phone.

The Touch ID is lightning fast. I've just programmed my thumb in. I was using my forefinger to unlock and my thumb to check the lock screen time, but I kept trying to unlock with my thumb and having to re-adjust. Being a lady with long nails, I can just use my thumbnail for lock screen display.

I've been taking a lot of photos and video here in the GC. The Live Photos are a bit of a gimmick but do nicely capture the atmosphere if you want to dig a bit deeper than just the image. You get the lapping of the water and the sounds of the birds.

Have you received your phone yet? I'm still waiting, staring out at the window. Mine has been forwarded to NZ Couriers yesterday at 10am!
