Nice find
What memory sizes were available and at what price I was after a 64 gig
The best iPhone since the iPhone.
Am I missing something? isn't this supposed to be VAT free? seems to be less than 10% of the original price?
Isn't this back to the argument of showing boarding pass info and these companies claiming the VAT 20%, 20% VAT off would give a price of £449 not £489, so they are making an additional £40 profit over the regular DSG/Carphone Warehouse price of £539 sim free.

And this is after been told to pass savings on to travellers.

"Super cool features"
I'm still shocked to this day, people actually pay nearly £500 for a phone with a poor battery.

Still it's an good deal, 6s is a good phone.
Be very careful which SIM you first use as using a foreign networks during your holiday could be very costly if the iPhone then auto-locks to that network.
Cool phone hate dixons though

Bad battery you say? My sister is getting nearly 9 hours of usage out of her 6s. That's more than the new Nexus 6p

They can only claim the vat back if it was a flight outside the EU.
Also when you enter the country with it, are you not supposed to declare it as there is a limit to tax free electronics.
So this price is available to all shoppers and as you aren't seen to not pay Vat you don't get stung with it either.

Also when Dixons was Tax Free. You always paid VAT but the prices appears to be the normal cost less the VAT.

Not sure about the battery, but I would never pay so much money for a phone with a crappy screen. 500£ for a 750p screen is insane.

Then vast numbers of people suffer from this insanity oO

Or perhaps it is you in expecting to see any difference in going for screen resolutions designed for 55-inch TVs on phone sized handsets!

Is says there. The top 'Usage' is screen on time. The bottom is Standby. So the poster is getting around 9+ hours usage time.
The battery is not poor at all.

I'm pretty sure "usage" is not screen on time. It's just the time period during which the phone was not in "deep sleep" or "standby". So an example may include listening to music with your headphones on and the screen off. This would be classed as "usage", but not the "screen on time" that I'm after.

Many of the well-renowned phones for battery such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 would only manage 4-5 hours screen on time. It's impossible for the iPhone to get anywhere near 5 hours, let alone 8+ hours.

Do me a favour. Go and find out what size of object the human eye can resolve down to. Then find out the pixel size on an iPhone 6s screen.

Was there an iPhone before the iPhone
why are poor people commenting on this that can't afford it, don't comment and buy an android
That much? For a phone? - It's a parallel universe. I bought a Lexus LS 400 for less than that.
Edit: but I had to pay extra for the chauffeur

Damm Cold Overprice phone which break the bank
The NAND performance of the iPhone 6S is nuts. It wastes even the Samsung Galaxy S6 which uses UFS (however the random write isn't as good) other phones use eMMC. The iPhone 6S is using NVMe which you get in higher end desktop computers these days. It's not on the same speed level though.

Why should I buy iphone when much more features, capabilities and premium look I can get it for less price ??
I bought my first iphone as iphone 3Gs with 16GB memory in year 2009 still they are selling as 16GB can't believe!
lowest camera in the world for price, Maximum body with less screen, NO SD slot, NO removable battery, Same old keyboard option, NO themes, NO Launcher, Same color scheme throught the lifetime, Same Camera apps, No true file manager, NO FM Radio, NO Google map Navigation, NO wireless charger, No waterproof

Android = Unlimited possibility, iphone = ???

and BTW £619 for 64 GB for poor battery life than many androids and still not the best camera in the smartphone

I own a Galaxy S6 so I'm not biased here's some pros to the iPhone 6S.

1. Excellent NAND storage performance.
2. Forcetouch, which really comes in to its own with a Jailbreak.
3. Walled garden - Far less security issues than rival platforms.
4. Optimisation - Apple make the software and hardware, they only have had to cater for 12 iPhones so far.
5. What you see is what you get, ease of use.

Some of the above apply to Windows Phone as well. Android is leagues ahead in terms of customisation and right at the bottom of the pile for optimisation.

Wow... Just wow. So many untrue statements here.

The camera is on-par with all other high-end android flagships. There is nothing wrong with it. Last year iPhone 6 came 1st in camera performance.

Do Samsung phones come with SD slots and removable batteries these days? No... A lot of android phones are stopping this trend.

You an now change the keyboard to whatever you wish as of 1 year ago.

FM radio? What are you 50 years old? Oops you might be.

There is Google Maps, Waze, Apple, Tomtom and more...

The most recent iPhone is now very water resistant.

The only thing lacking is true customisation like themes etc, but tbh it's a phone and all I need it to do is make calls and send texts etc. don't need it looking fancy.

1. No-one cares.
1.1 Can you add your own storage?
2. I have not experienced this but Jailbreaking an iPhone opens it up to a whole new world of malware.
3. It has been proven time and time again that malware makes it into the app store.
3.1 So there's less competition in the App Store vs Play Store and prices are higher? Who would have thought?
4. Meh, so Apple can save costs buy not putting as much RAM into their phones.
4.1 Are these cost savings passed onto the end user?
5. This last point is just rubbish. An iPhone isn't any simpler to use than any other smartphone. I've seen plenty of people upgrading from one iPhone to the next over years losing data, because they don't understand the backup and restore mechanisms. People may say it's simpler because it's all they've known but it's not an intuitive affair for first time iPhone users.
