    Also, the app notifications number is easily accessed just enlarging the folder… The remaining two uses are so rarely used by most that if these are the best uses for inserting new hardware with such an unintuitive use for it, then this clearly proves 3D Touch is mostly just a gimmick… In some cases, it even takes longer than just opening the app itself… 😂

    Well, on Android I can update all apps from the Notification Window, no hard press required… can open the camera app on my S6 with two touches on the home button and get to the camera app and camera option far quicker than with the three moves you need on the iOS… The dual finger to move the cursor is ridiculous when you can quickly use your finger to select which part of the word or word you need to correct or insert a word in… Honestly, iPhones are absolutely today's hardware with last year's software… Ridiculous…😂

    Previewing web pages is my favorite use. 1,000x better than the changing the flashlight brightness….

    I use 3D Touch to easily switch from one app to another like an app switcher. Just 3D Touch from the left corner of the screen to easily switch apps

    The number one use is precisely moving the cursor around. Even if 3D Touch had no other uses, that alone is so useful that a phone not having 3D Touch would be a deal breaker for me, now that I've had it.
