Their battery health is bad and this the phone throttled at HALF the frequency and this leads to more than half perf hit in a lot of scenarios. Can be turned off, but they risk unwanted sudden shutdown because the battery can’t provide the power needed in peak consumption scenarios. Simple fix is to change the battery for 15$-20$ or 50$ if at apple representative. The battery is over 4 years old on the 6s and 5 years old on the 6 anyway, what you expect? To use a phone daily for over 4-5 years and not replacing the battery?

If not throttled and with decent configuration (a lot of cases in both android and ios, where the user do stupid things leading to his problems) - the 6s is super fast and fluid. 6 is totally different beast and a lot lot weaker than the 6s + half the RAM at only 1GB, but if the battery is decent and the phone not throttled - it works good too. Rofl, you clearly know sh*t about iphones, but fanboy style jump to talk about your s9 that will be abandoned soon while apple released security update this summer for iphone 5 and 4s (2012 and 2011 respectably) and still update fully the 6s with day one updating like the 11 series and betas. How is the galaxy s6 from 2015 doing update wise? On what android it was abandoned? Android 7? Nice support for the phones priced not that far vs the iphone price. Back in the days the best android phone coated HALF the iphone price and the two years support was ok, albeit not great. Nowdays with the similar price - there is no excuse for that to continue.
Oh sorry I forgot to mention that he replaced the battery, and this issue is still happening.
I know it isn't an excuse for samsung to release just 2 major updates, but my friends iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s have a lot of weird stuff happening sometimes. I just can't live with this... So I prefer staying with a stable software rather than updating and have a lot of bugs...

What bugs? I have a second hand 6s 16GB running ios 13.3.1 beta - I can't find a single bug and I use a lot more than facebook and safari, i.e. what the average user uses. I found bugs in earlier ios 13 versions, but apple flop hard with ios 13 in general, it was super buggy no matter if iphone 6s or iphone 11 pro max. All ironed out till now (took them around 1 month for the major issues and 2 months for the rest), tell your friends to update to latest and to turn off the low power mode if they got it on. Also iphone 6 is up to ios 12.X.X, didn't receive ios 13 and ios 12 is quite stable. Our NOC team have iphone 6 and it runs great. If they face issues, they can try a clean reinstall of the OS and backup restore.

tl:dr No matter the OS, if someone doesn't know what he is doing, he can totally ruin the phone experience - be it a poor battery life, poor performance or buggy state.

I agree that the iPhone 6s is holding pretty well, but it isn't faster than the note 9. Just have some whatsapp chats on the iPhone 6s and the app will take forever to load, I saw this in every old iPhone I saw.
