Yep. I come around about once a year when the new phones release. I actually joined this forum a week before the original iPhone was released. I feel like I will always check in once in a while just for the memories.
I think I might be tempted to get an XR. I have an iPhone 8 but I didn't see the justification to upgrade to the XS or the XS Max until I see the XR. I really have never been this torn between iPhones.
What color is your iPhone 6 Plus and what color is the 6S Plus? I had the silver 6 Plus and went to the 6S Plus in Space grey and it seems to me that the colors are better but I figured it was due to the black front on the new phone.
I hear about the animations every iPhone release and I still either don't know what you are all talking about or I don't even notice it that much to annoy me. It's been the same thing for the last 8 years around here. I just find it amusing.
