    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?

    I tired the 6s when it first came out and the screen was just too small for my vision, so nope not me.

    2 years ago I got the 6, which I loved, but my close up vision is terrible so I sold it 3 months later and got the 6 Plus, and that was perfect.
    This time I got the 7 Plus and I'm happy.

    Admittedly there are situations where I miss my 6S simply for the size. Like when I'm laying down or adjusting to one handed use on my 7 Plus. But I'll get used to it. Overall I'm very happy with my 7 Plus.

    It wasn't long ago a lot of people here were pining for the size of the 5. I think I would need a toothpick to type on that keyboard. I've got a Plus. Before that a Note 5, before that a 6 Plus, before that a Note 2.....

    Two years ago yes but not I can't handle a smaller phone with my eyes going as I age.

    I'm pretty used to the size of the 7 Plus now even with small hands. No regrets at all.

    after a few days you will get used to it. I was the same way at first with my 6 plus

    The plus definitely feels too big at first, but after using one for two years the 7 feels too small for me now. I have a plus on order and my 7 will go to one of my daughters when it comes in. The plus definitely feels like it shrinks as you use it. Don't give up too soon.

    Nope, I could never return to anything smaller than the Plus. For me the experience of having bigger real estate for consumption would be a negative.

    I have the 6 Plus before and I think it is the perfect size. I do a lot of one-hand navigation (especially when I am holding a hamburger or sandwich on my other hand ) and I never have any issue.

    After a small adjustment period I think you will be totally happy. I could not image going back to a smaller screen. My wife and daughter both have 6's and it's unbelievable how small it feels when I have to use their phones for something.

    Plus is too big for me. I like the size of the 7. Everyone has different needs. Maybe one day I'll go big again but right now, opting for the 7.

    Yea,, I just cancelled my 7 Plus order and re-ordered the 7.
    I had the 6 Plus but eventually switched to the 6, had the 6s Plus but also switched to the 6s.
    Getting used to the smaller screen size was quite painless as the smaller one handed use more than made up for the loss is screen size.
    I've loved all my Galaxy Notes 1 thru 5 and love the screen sizes but the iPhone Plus phone are just to ginormous "for me" to use as a daily driver.

    Cheers

    I came from a 6S. However I'm able to fit more in this screen after changing the font size to the smallest available. Love this form factor.

    when the 6 first came out i went for the 6 plus and felt the phone was too big, so i went for the regular 6s but that was an awful year. yes the screen size was more manageable for every day but i missed the big screen. so i knew i had to go back to the 7 plus. i wish they would just make the bezels smaller because the note 5 and note 7 are 5.7" but much easier to handle since the bezels are so small.

    Not totally true. I have an iPhone SE which is 4" size. Just doesn't have all the features like 3D Touch.

    I'm "stuck" on the plus models now (from 6 to 6s, and now 7). I love the size of the 7 model (especially without any bulky cases), but the cameras are always better/more feature packed on the Plus side, and once you get used to never worrying about battery during the day (6:00am to 11:00pm) you just can't go back to the regular size.

    Here's hoping for 2017 Apple learns from Samsung (yes, I said that) and puts a 5.7" AMOLED into a smaller body (like the Note 7). There have been exciting rumors that the iP8 Pro will be ALL SCREEN - no bezel in any direction - so look at your Plus and imagine the greatness of it being no larger than the active portion of the screen - THAT would be absolute heaven as a user.

    Not at all. I came from a 6s plus so I'm used to the size.

    I just use the Zoom setting on the phone, made the fonts "bold" and sized them up 1-2 sizes and it works for my eyes. Even w/o using my reading glasses.

    No way.
    Full disclosure, I've got a personal SE, last year's 6s Plus, this year's 7 Plus, and a work issues 6.
    The SE is great fun to use but it is cramped. The 6 is adequate for work because it is just work.
    The Plus is the perfect personal size.
