    I'm curious, has anyone actually understood what the original poster meant when he asked his question?

    I am upgrading to the 7 plus from the 6s for the new camera, longer battery life, and screen size.

    Currently have a 6s and I'm needing/wanting that 1080 screen along with the size. Battery will be a added perk. Nothing compares to the+ in terms of battery. And I'm looking forward to the new A10 fusion. Bigger keyboard will be nice also. Also looking forward to the new dual camera. 6s is a nice phone and so is the regular 7 but the + is where i'm going this year. Can't wait

    From 6 Plus to 7 Plus, because I'm really a fabulous person and I deserve the best of everything, said the queen while drinking her coffee in bed.

    All the normal reasons people upgrade:

    Better processor
    Better battery life
    Dual cameras look awesome
    I like Apple stuff
    I don't think the average person is upgrading cause of better processor, and the camera bump looks pretty awful on the 7 Plus, to be frank. More area to get scratched or dirty. Huge size means you're going to need a relatively thick case to keep it from getting scratched on surfaces, etc. which means the phone is going to be thick and heavy AF when you run with a case on it - which has been my issue with the 6 and 6S Plus over the past couple of years.

    The phone is nice and thin/light with nothing on it,but it's a bar of soap. So, in order to add grip and keep the camera bump off of surfaces you end up bloating the weight and thickness of the phone considerably (as well as it's already overbearing WIDTH - thanks to HUGE bezels).

    I also don't think Apple's "improved battery life claims" have ever really materialized. They've been saying you're going to get 1 more hour of battery life for years now. If they were actually delivering that, then small iPhones would be getting 8 hours of SoT at this point. They clearly aren't.

    They've stated higher battery life (about 1 hour or more) for at least 3 different iPhone releases and at least 1 (maybe two) iOS releases in the past few years... Battery life continues to be rather terrible.

    It's time of them to start using bigger batteries. To be honest, I'm getting exasperated with these big phones, which are the only solution due to battery life on the smaller ones being as bad as it is.

    With the iP7 and iP7+ having the same main 12MP camera module, there isn't really a compelling feature for me to consider the Plus, except the terrible battery life the 7 assured to have in comparison to the Plus - and many other phones in the 4.7-5.1" size class (as in, practically every other major flagship/release in that category, even mid-ranged devices).

    There's a lot of opinion as fact in there...I use it daily without a case or screen protector and it's not a bar of soap as you assert. That's just one of many statements of fact that you listed that is strictly in your opinion or experience.

    Plenty of people have no issue using it daily without a case. Similarly I regularly get 6-8 hours screen time and 19-29 hours standby. Far better than I had with LG V10 and GS7. Pretty close to what I got with the 6 Plus (which hasn't bent, FYI and my hubby isn't careful with it).

    I tried out the note 7 and my iPhone 6s Plus was getting much better battery life with it even with the fancy "features" turned off. Power management on apple blows Samsung out of the water. Needless to say the note went back.
