So... Second wave opened today. If I ordered in Norway now I would have gotten the iPhone 6S within 1-3 days. I was late to order here in NZ (ordered a couple of weeks ago), and its still shipping in a couple of weeks).

Thats not nice, Apple. :/

Edit: I wrote "third wave", its the second wave that was opened today.

I'm not bothered to even check.

Battery life and performance is infinitely better than my Nexus 5 so it makes no difference what it has

Have you heard of the concepts of statistically insignificant difference or margin of error?

apple will say anything to stand by the product, but tests are coming in which The results show a 1 hour 45 minutes difference in battery life on the two devices after running the Geekbench 3 test.


I am not making this up :)

Look, this is coming from a person who is actually concerned by this issue also but it's just silly to keep harping on about some Geekbench test that runs the CPU at maximum load/near maximum load and then saying "See, the Samsung chip performs much worse". Even if all this is literally true, SO WHAT? No one runs their phone at maximum load for hours on end.

"Tests are coming in"? They aren't coming in. People already have seen those silly Geekbench tests. If you are going to slag off a company, at least get your facts straight.

Umm no. I actually have on here made pretty harsh comments about Apple. How about your actually address the issues I have raised instead of doing stupid name calling? Or are you just a troll?

for the record, you started name calling by saying  "  If you are going to slag off a company " 


I am just providing / stating facts being provided by news medium articles., to get feedback on users here ( if they are facing any issues - cuz I am genuinely interested )


I am not adding / manipulating anything on my own.


Please keep your assumptions to your kind self.

You started off by posting "Apple has confirmed chip gate" when the tenor and content of Apple's press release which you quoted completely did not support your assertion. If that's not slagging off a company, I don't know what is. For the record, based on similar usage, I am getting better battery life on my 6S than 6. But I have enough understanding of statistics to know that this is at best just an anecdote.
