Quote from: Jobydrone on January 30, 2015, 11:16:51 AMI am extremely happy with my phone (128G six plus) but I have a few concerns.First of all, I don't know if anyone else experienced this, but I was forced to update my iMac in order to be able to use the phone with iTunes. What's up with that? I was running Snow Leopard on my 2009 iMac and never updated because it worked perfectly and met all my needs, and all I read about was how buggy Lion and Mountain Lion were. But when I tried to plug in my phone I got a message saying the phone wasn't compatible with the version of iTunes I was running, and it turned out I couldn't update iTunes without upgrading my OS. I was extremely annoyed and felt this should have been something that needed to be made very public before allowing people to buy these devices. I did a ton of research for weeks before getting the phone, talked to people at the store of course as well, and nothing I read or heard indicated that I couldn't use the phone with the Snow Leopard OS. It wound up ok, Yosemite was a free upgrade, and fortunately my pretty old computer was able to run it. It actually turned out great for my computer: the OS runs well, it's kind of like having a brand new computer...but if my computer was any older it could have been a disaster, leaving the phone unable to sync or connect and basically a useless brick.Other than that, I've noticed some odd bugs that haven't been fixed. Both my mom and my wife, both with six plusses, have had instances where they had to hard reboot the phone (holding on/off button and home button at same time until reboot occurs) because either the screen froze, or turned off completely and wouldn't respond. Also there have been issues with charging...sometimes even when plugged in the phone just won't charge, but a hard reset fixed that as well. I've had weird bugs with the screen orientation...where it seems to lock in place and not realize which way I'm holding the device until I reset to home screen and open the app again. It happens a lot in texts and email. And I've noticed when watching videos and pausing in the middle, if I back out of the video to the root menu of the videos app, it doesn't keep where I was cached in memory, even though I have the settings set to do so. Finally, my wife's phone has twice gotten "stuck" in headphone mode, even when headphones were not attached, meaning the external speaker wouldn't work. All of the above seem to be bugs with the operating system and will hopefully be fixed with future iterations of iOS 8.x.Bugs aside, this is an amazing piece of hardware. I love having it in my pocket.
