    Never used it on my iPhone 6S Plus. Pointless to me.

    If you check the macrumors forum...most iPhone users don't use it...its a proven fact on that board

    Well I used it all the time. I'm not concerned with what macrumors says. It's a good feature, whether used or not. Just like all the users that don't use half the stuff their phones can do.

    I love that the tmobile's version of the replacement note 7 with software updates seems to have borrowed from Apples 3D touchhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...4b90bc6842.jpg
    Isn't that there all along when you long press an app icon?

    It is not 3d touch. It is a long press. But as Apple is implemented 3d touch on the iPhone, most of the time it does the same as a long press in that Apple is not taking full advantage of the tech

    Um yeah.....that's the normal long press menu that's available on most launchers since like forever. If it was a true 3d touch like function, the twitter app would have special twitter commands not just the normal "uninstall", "app info", etc options.

    I was asking a colleague of mine about the 3d touch on her 6+. She had no idea it existed until I told her to try it. She was also telling me how she liked that when she swiped through her photos, the photos would move a little bit (live photos). I told her if she pushed down on them she would see the photos moving. She had no idea.

    Yeah this won't pick up much steam until all Note 7's have it, if even then.

    It also only seems to work with the stock launcher (I have GNL installed and it doesn't work).

    That's totally not the same thing. Those are all things that your phone does to the app. 3d touch has things that the app has added to your phone, like being able to tweet and stuff. You can't compare that to the stuff all android devices have already like app info or uninstall.

    You know, the one thing I really liked on 3D Touch was long-pressing to preview links. That's a seriously useful thing for me.

    I honestly didn't start using it much until I'd had it for a long while. Once I got used to it I used it several times a day. With iOS 10 it became even more useful.

    Both my parents got 6SEs recently. They have no idea how Live Photos work. The funny thing is my mom has gotten better ones than I ever did and she didn't even know it existed. Seems like I always focused on trying to get good live photos instead of just taking good shots.

    Hey, long press touch is better than no press touch like on Verizon model. If Verizon Note 7 people were ticked before about having less features, that now expanded widely with this update. We got none of the updates. Like Charlie Brown, all we got was a rock (green gauge).

    I used it all the time as well. To call people or text, or add a payment in my budget tracking app. There are tons of features once you try it and get used to it.

    Well, I appreciate the OP posting about it because I didn't know this functionality existed on my Note 7.

    Thanks OP!

    How is it pointless?
    Its a more efficient way to interact with apps.
    If I had it, I would use it to uninstall apps, wish AT&T had this

    It's nice to know there's another way to do something, but the shortcuts available today aren't of much use to me the way I'm using my phone. Maybe when developers start writing additional functionality into the feature it will pick up steam.

    I don't need to uninstall apps frequently enough to get much use out of it.

    I have had this feature for a while on Nova Launcher and people are right, not a useful enough feature as it is implemented on Android as it is on the iPhone. Using this to bring up a menu to remove icon from home screen, uninstall and whatever really is not a defining feature. I honestly can give with it, or without it. No matter to me.
