Not sure about this part. I requested to replace my space grey 6 with a silver one, however they said it's impossible to do that. I didn't push it though as it was not mandatory for me.

They will not do that. I had requested an upgrade from 16 to 64gb, same color. They said that apple sanctions the replacement from their end and it is not possible to make any changes or upgrades.

I have changed iPhone 4 and 5s screens recently in the mobile market with aftermarket spares. Works well.

After upgrade to iOS 10, I am facing issues with Whatsapp. The keyboard hangs sometimes when I try to reply to messages from the Lock screen. At other times, the message only accepts single line answer. I can't press Enter to send a lengthy message.

Another problem I face is when sliding notifications on the Lock screen, to View or Clear, many a times the phone opens the Camera.

Overall, I don't find any benefit from 10. I was happier with iOS 9.x.x. It was fuss free and worked like a charm. There were no ambiguous situations (like getting Camera when trying to view a notification). I feel that the battery life has definitely increased which is more than welcome.

PS: I use a 6 month old 5s 16gb.

Would look forward to get the 5SE in space grey.

I think I have the same issue with my phone but it happens very rarely.
I feel the right side lower edge clicking back into place sometimes when I press it.
Problem here is that how do I reproduce this issue to the Apple care people?
The warranty on my iPhone 6 is about to end in first week of October.

I keep losing Wi-Fi, even when my phone is placed very near to the router most of the time I am home.

Either it randomly comes back on (with all WhatsApp/Telegram/Facebook alerts hitting my phone one after the other in a cascading effect), or I have to switch off/switch on the Wi-Fi button in Settings.

Software update problem, or I am experiencing a hardware problem related to Wi-Fi?
I'm facing the same problem. I thought it was an issue with the Router.

Looks like the first version of iOS10 has it's fair share of bugs.

Another thing I am noticing is random call drops. At first I thought it was the network (Idea) but the same SIM fitted in my Galaxy A7 is working just fine.

Haven't tried to experiment with my Jio SIMs yet.

I tried removing and re-adding my Wi-Fi network, and it still didn't work.

The "cascading effect" of the notifications is becoming a real pain now, specially when there are a TON of messages pending to be updated when the Wi-Fi signal is lost/regained.

Not surprisingly, I prefer to keep my 6 Plus on Silent mode most of the time these days.

Got the new 7 plus today at Chandigarh. Apparently there is easy availabilty in the grey market this time except for black colour. Since mine 6 was damaged yesterday, didn't waited for the black or official launch. By initial impressions, there is not much difference in overall feel, just a bit faster. I doubt if 6S users are going to even feel performance difference at all.

I need to get a SE 64gb. Very moderate usage (maybe a bit of whatsapp and seeing photos and videos)and not tech savvy to keep clearing memory in a 16gb.
Have a 6 and 6s at home but a smaller phone is much more suitable for the family member( first time smartphone user, he'll use his flip phone for most of his calls. Never used sms till now). He liked iPhone's design ( 6/6s) but wants something to fit his pocket, they were too large.
Now SE is around 45k here and 30k(450 USD) in USA. Am tempted to save 15k, haven't seen an apple product fail in a year except for physical damage.
Is it a good idea to source from US? Do I need to check any specific version( read something about bands but I don't understand).
Only reason for choosing SE over 5s is that latter doesn't support jio 4G ( I saw list on their website). Please advise.

Upgraded to iOS 10 on my iPhone 5S 16GB. Not bad at all. In fact I was worried about the huge size (1GB) at first and the download failed I think thrice for want of space but once it went through, it's been happy sailing. Especially like the white texts and notifications as opposed to black earlier. Also found it easier to enter OTP while making in-app purchases, e.g. Uber.

Emoticons look nicer too. Whatsapp seems to have got a predictive smiley feature now which is a neat party trick.

Must say these OS upgrades make having an ancient phone (2 years? WOW! is the response I usually get) bearable.

I upgraded to iOS10 too on my iPhone 6.
Love all the features on this.

The one BIG thing i dislike is the way we now need to unlock the phone. Earlier, just keep the Thumb and it unlocks. With the iOS 10, we need to place the thumb and then, press the Home button as an additional step. Wonder why they made it this way!

Theres a reason for this, see http://www.howtogeek.com/262837/how-...like-in-ios-9/

You can revert to the ios9 way if you like in the settings

Settings General Accessibility Home Button

In the Home Button menu you’ll find an entry, turned off by default in iOS 10, labeled “Rest Finger to Unlock”. Turn it back on for ios9 behavior.

iOS 10.0.2 was automatically downloaded; installing it now.

Hope it resolves some issues users have been having; Avi's wifi issue for instance.

In that case you can also consider buying from Singapore. I bought iPhone 6 64GB from Singapore last year for 40k and it works perfectly here. With US phone, you will have to consider locked / unlocked version and band issue, if any.
