    Battery on the Plus models is amazing! my 6 Plus was and my 7 Plus is! If I forget to charge at night it's no problem the next day, NOW at some point on day 2 yes I DO have to find a charger, BUT I can start my day without issue. Find me an Android that can do that!

    Congrats bro enjoy it! Was going to get a plus again this year but decided against it. I have an iPhone 7 for work but have an Android for personal. I am thinking that next year for the redesign I will go back to a Plus model. Loved my 6s Plus but gonna wait it out another year. May be hard but dunno lol!

    TLD1 has joined the (matte) dark side woohoo!!!
    Ok seriously I am still tickled pink every time I use mine, so much in fact that my belligerent man who swore up and down that he'd never use an iPhone ended up grabbing my old 6 Plus and activating it as his daily driver.

    I still do a happy dance every time I use my 7 Plus lol.

    No, not yet. I mean, I can go all day on a single charge, but so far, the battery life is less than my iPhone 6S, but not by much. Granted, I'm experimenting with it and I've not taken the time to set it up as new yet. I know the battery life will be even better after I do that so I'm not worried about it at all.

    I set my Plus up as a new phone, and although I haven't really let it run until it dies yet to accurately measure longevity...it is easily still double what my 6s was getting. At the end of a 12-hour-plus day, my Plus is at 60-70% where my 6s was great if it had a 20% charge left. Even if it gets no better after a full-drain/full-charge routine, I'm very satisfied.

    I misspoke. I referenced the iPhone 6S when I meant to reference my iPhone 6S Plus. Sorry about that.

    I stumbled across a 256gb Matte Black iPhone 7 Plus at Best Buy yesterday evening, after everybody in town said they'd been out of Plusses for weeks and that nobody would have any Matte Black ones in stock until the latter part of November. I casually walked into the Best Buy Mobile at my local mall and asked if they had any...expecting the same old story. Suprise! They had ONE that they had gotten in an hour before. I virtually HAD to pull the trigger. Yes...256gb is insane. I'll never use half of that...in fact, probably not half of half of that. But...it's there, and it's what they had THEN.

    And you know what...seriously? It doesn't feel that big in my pocket. I got used to it today at work after only an hour or so. No big deal.

    I'm stoked with it. Beautiful screen...everything is bigger and better than my 7 was. And, for a guy who's not getting any younger...it's a whole lot easier to read stuff on too. And, the matte black color with the black leather Apple case looks sexy. Boom!

    We have a winner!

    Totally going to the larger phone next time... like @Quis89 I'm looking forward to the extra battery power, and can't wait to try that camera (portrait mode and OIS will be welcomed!)

    Well, you lasted longer than I did. I caved at 3AM the night the preorder started. Seriously though, congrats on your 7 Plus. It's a ridiculously nice phone, until I cave again in about 11 months.

    My estimated ship date is 11/28-12/19. You think it'll ship way before that?

    It's hard to say but it seems many people are getting their iPhones ahead of the posted estimates.

    Default Ok...I caved.

    I'm definitely digging the 7 Plus. Yes battery life is insane. After dumping the Note 7 for a return last week I was shocked there was a 7 Plus 256GB Jet Black at Rogers. Don't need that storage at all but the phone was right there in front of me. Had to jump on it and even Rogers knocked off another $160 off the price due to the Note 7 debacle. Getting at least 9hrs usage in the battery stats and I don't need to charge twice a day like my Note. I can go well over 24hrs being off charge now. I'm a power user and constantly on the phone with my two businesses.

    Bought a Series 1 Apple Watch on Friday. Everything is great. I missed the smooth iOS and love iOS 10.

    I've never ordered an iPhone before, but you would think they would start showing up earlier and earlier. I'm assuming new orders are slowing down daily at this point and hopefully production is in high gear.

    They are a huge company. The iPhone has proven to be so popular during launch to result in a backorder of more than a month or two. They should invest in an additional production facility. I might be the only one, but I've avoided the iPhone up until now because of this. I've been an Android user for 8 years but have been tempted by the iPhone since the 4/5. The long backorders and scarce inventory are the only things that kept me from trying one. The Note 7 recall is finally what got me to give one a try and decide it's worth the wait to get the 7 Plus.
