Is Apple Planning An iPhone With Curved Screen Like Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge?

Apple is behind the curve this time as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was the first smartphone with a curved screen. However, according to BGR, Apple is preparing it's own version of a smartphone with a curved screen.

"But this isn't the first time Apple has been rumored to be working on iPhones with curved wraparound displays. Most recently, a report claimed that South Korean display makers are already presenting such screen solutions to Apple for future iPhone use, and the company appears to be interested."
Perhaps Apple is seeing how the success of the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is showing that consumers really like curved screens. As BGR notes, Apple could plan to take things further by producing a "wraparound" device that has no physical buttons on the front. This would silence those critics who say the latest iPhone is behind the times.

The Wall Street Journal criticizes the battery life of the new iPhone.
"Let's get this out of the way first. The No. 1 thing people want in a smartphone is better battery life. And the iPhone 6s doesn't deliver that."
The review adds that the regular iPhone 6s will get you through the day, but you'll need to recharge by nighttime. The battery life on the iPhone 6s Plus is better, but there still may be some who will need to recharge it before bedtime. This is in stark contrast to the Galaxy Note 5, which gives even the most powerful users a full day's worth of juice.

Perhaps the best review for the iPhone 6s was given by PC Magazine, who gave Apple's device four-and-a-half stars.

"The Apple iPhone 6s may look just like its predecessor, but it offers up some real advantages that make the iPhone experience better."
The review goes on to note that the 6s has much better 4G LTE reception that the iPhone 6, while also praising the 12MP camera, the super-fast processor, and the new 3D Touch capabilities. The only problem PC Magazine has with the new iPhone is that they think the front camera could be sharper.

According to Yahoo News, some users are complaining that their new iPhone devices are turning off randomly. The article adds that there have been other issues such as the home button becoming too hot and audio distortion in the phone's speakers. Apple hasn't commented on any of these issues yet, but some customers on Twitter are very upset.
At least Apple hasn't had the bad publicity they had when the antenna didn't work on the iPhone 4s in 2010. There haven't been any reports of people bending their new iPhones out of shape like there were in 2014. Still, one hopes that Apple could at least acknowledge the current issues and provide a fix as soon as possible. Do you own an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus? Are you experiencing any problems?
