    Not totally true. I have an iPhone SE which is 4" size. Just doesn't have all the features like 3D Touch.
    He/she was probably talking about his/here last two phones being 5.5" displays and that he/she can't go to a smaller screen for whatever reason.

    I now wear glasses with progressive lenses and a 5s is fine for me. So the SE was a logical upgrade, but I think I want the sheer horsepower of the 7. As I've been on the s cycle since the 3Gs, I may wait for the 7s, but I'll need bigger pants pockets.

    The SE will probably always be a step or two behind the 'numbered' lines so I'll just have to bite the bullet and upsize my upgrade. But no way will I go Plus.

    I have a 6s for work. I love my 7+ so much more with all the extra real estate

    I'm having a difficult time adjusting to the size of this device. Kind of wishing I may have gone with the smaller counterpart. Anyone else feel the same? Any tips for a first time Plus owner that's thinking about swapping to the smaller one?
    That is why I chose the 7. Just could never get used to the large size. If apple trimmed the bezels I would go with the plus, but the plus is huge compared to similar 5.5" screened devices. I like the added features, but for me the one handed usability makes it an easier choice for me, especially now that the 7 has OIS.

    I enjoy bigger screened phones and the 7+ battery life is amazing for me. I also enjoy the better camera and slightly better screen resolution.

    I picked up my 7+ tonight at the Apple Store and ALMOST got the 7 instead for the size how much better it fit in my pocket but I've had my 6+ for 2 years now and just simply can't go back to the smaller screen.

    The selling pints for me:
    -Battery
    -Camera
    -Screen real estate
    -Go big or go home

    Well. I did it. I exchanged my silver 7 Plus for a black 7. No regrets so far. It's easier to use one handed for sure.

    Do not tell me that, I am going to beat myself up for the next 14 days (or whatever Apple's return policy is).
    Its just really hard to go from the large screen, slightly better battery and dual camera to the regular 7 just for the size and how much easier it is to pocket.

    You'll get used to it. Besides, the 7 hasn't got the two super lenses which is the reason most opted for the 7 Plus

    No, my only regret is not getting a plus model sooner.

    iPhone 4s ->
    iPhone 5s ->
    iPhone 6s ->
    iPhone 7 Plus

    I got the 7 Plus 8 days ago, and now whenever I pick up my old 6s, it feels TINY. I don't think the 5.5-inch screen is for everyone, but I am fairly short and have smaller hands, and I got adjusted no problem. Just takes a while to get used to it is all, give it a few days. And use it as you would any normal phone

    Friends of mine ended up doing the exact same thing with 6+ and 6S+. Convinced me ahead of time not to try the 7+ even though the camera is tempting.

    Now that my iPhone has completely replaced my old Nikon DX40 (I'll never be Ansel Adams) - camera is the premiere necessity, and without a doubt the dual lenses of the 7Plus make it mandatory for me. If they improve those in the 8Plus (or iPhone X, or whatever they call it) I guess I'll be on the upgrade treadmill forever...

    Fascinating how the industry has come full circle back to the 60's where you leased that pretty Princess phone - you couldn't even buy one if you wanted...

    I'm a little upset I didn't get the 7 first this way if I didn't like it I could go back to a plus but I got the 7+ first so if I did switch to the 7, that's what I'll be stuck with for 12 months.

    Going to hit the Apple Store this afternoon to check the regular 7 out one more time and play with it for 10 minutes or so. The only thing that scares me is the battery life of the 7 compared to the 6+ I'm coming from and now 7+ I have.

    I'd have to agree with you there .....it's not the same battery life, hence my buyer's remorse

    What kind of battery life is ideal for your usage patterns? My 7 easily lasts the entire day with 30-50% left to spare on weekdays and 15-25% on weekends with heavier use. I charge overnight.

    I've had both. The 7 struggled to get me through the day. The Plus easily gets me through the day. And camera? Well with iOS 10.1 it wasn't even close. The Plus hands down. Glad I switched to the Plus.

    It's funny I got the seven on launch cuz there was no way of getting the plus. I got lucky and got the 7 plus yesterday and man I miss the big screen. I thought to myself I be good with the 4.7 screen but I wasn't.

    Will I switch out my iPhone 7 for the iPhone 7 Plus? Maybe. Maybe not. Right now, I'm enjoyed my the new device while also enjoying my youngest son's football game. Thus far, the battery is holding up quite well.

    As far as battery life is concerned between the Plus (when I had it) and the 7 that I have now....I have no complaints. Both devices have beastly battery with my usage. I think we really have the A10 to thank for that. My 7 easily gets me through 15-17 hours off of the charger with juice left to spare (like 40-50%).

    While I'm not disputing, the battery life would vary on usage .... My 6s+ off charger at 6am during the work week would be at 40% by 1pm (calls, emails and social media messages -WA/FB).

    I personally work from my device.

    I'm still to run the same with this 7, as I'm yet to return to work.

    No way. I enjoy the larger screen and better screen as far as clarity. Cameras are better too.

    I would love to have the 56mm lens and the software for depth of field. I just can't have a phone that large. Just too large!

    Can you give an example of your daily usage? I found my 6s+ to always outlast my wife's 6s by four plus hours (she needed a boost by dinner time). I really like the larger screen and dual cameras, but the 7 would be so much more pocketable - even the Galaxy Note 7 is more manageable - the bezels on the 7Plus are just outrageous.
