I uninstalled Facebook for the same reason. Not that I miss it but I was also spending a lot of time browsing when I had free time. Not good for my neck pain. Also the battery holds up lot better now.

We have 5 iPhones in the family and all of them are having front and back colored tempered glasses. I purchased the first one from aliexpress for my iPhone 6 Plus and then Later found a seller on eBay.in who was cheaper and offered the same item. Have since purchased the same from him for my wife, kids and brother. I think it cost me 350 for two pairs, can't exactly recall but it is here in this thread. Same thing with the case. I am using a 50rs rubber case similar to the one you showed but purchased in Bangkok. I have a tough armor and couple more leather one etc but find them cumbersome.

You really spent 40$ on a case?
Check this out
http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-LUVVITT...NT&sdsrc=staff

This 12.99$ case can be bought for 4$ when you use a code shown here
http://slickdeals.net/f/8798675-luvv...c=rcm_category

If you still have someone coming to India from US, you could have them buy it for you. My friend uses this same case and its really well built. Doesn't look cheap. The brand is called "Luvvitt". I also like cases made by Spigen. Although I have no idea how much these cases are sold for in India 4$ is pretty cheap considering the quality.

I am getting a battery backup of 7-8 hours of SOT and 24-25 hours of standby for my 6s. Is this normal or standard across 6s?

Yes, it is perfectly normal if not above average. I get around the same 7-8 hours of usage (not SOT) with 25-26 hours of standby. However, with 6S we cannot calculate SOT by checking the usage time. We can calculate by adding the minutes on screen below each app.

Did you mean SOT or Usage time? Can you show screenshot of battery usage?

If the detailed battery usage shows around 5-6 hrs screen on time total for various apps, this is normal when in 4G network always with bluetooth ON.

This's the normal time I get from my 5S. Being a heavy user with continous FB, whatsapp, teambhp, tapatalk and safari browsing, I get full zero in around 4 hours.

The phone needs an Infrared blaster.
That is available on quite a few Android phones. The Peel app is quite good.

I've been using Weather underground and it's been pretty accurate so far. The UI is also very good.

I just ask Siri if I need to carry an Umbrella to work 😛.

Jokes aside I'll give this a shot on this app.
