    Default Ok...I caved.

    Ok...after huffing and puffing about how perfect the size of the iPhone 7 was, and how "too stinking big" the Plus was...that it felt like an iPad Pro in the front pocket of my slacks...I caved.

    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!

    Don't feel bad. I returned home from the Apple Store not long ago with a black iPhone 7 Plus........ I really did enjoy using the iPhone 7, and I still believe it is the perfect size for a smartphone, yet, I miss using the Plus size and simply prefer it more and thus the reason for the swap...

    I was 100% sure you were gonna return the 7 for a 7 Plus.

    Well, you turned out to be 100% right.......Seriously, there was nothing about the iPhone 7 I didn't like, and I honestly planned on keeping it until the release of the 10th anniversary iPhone, but man, I just missed using the Plus model. The difference in the camera wasn't a consideration, the extra RAM was a slight motivation, and I do mean slight. It boiled down to my preference for using a bigger device.

    It's amazing how quickly the plus seems to shrink down from an unusable slab to a large but very manageable device, and how that causes the 7 to seem tiny by comparison. Honestly, I don't know how I ever managed with an iPhone 4. 😄

    Until someone, like my lovely friend mentioned while peering over his iPhone SE today at me, "is that an F'ing iPad?!"

    I still have to use a 4 for work, but I could never use it as my DD. Honestly I hate that phone. My 7P is very nice...she could stand to trim down some or get a larger screen.

    I went from an SE to a plus and I'm amazed at how easy this size just became the norm and NBD

    I was surprised as well at how the 7 Plus fits into my life. Despite smallish hands I have become very used to using it. I'm also surprised at how well it fits into my pockets. No regrets about my decision to go with the 7 Plus.

    By the time my next upgrade cycle comes around (May 2018) I may have an iPad of some sort. If I do, Ill probably go for the smaller one rather than the Plus. My reasoning for the Plus right now is I dont have a tablet, and wanted something easy to see watch videos on when Im out and about. I wont need that if I have a tablet.

    Congrats on the new iPhone. I was the same way - plus size phones were to big, but now I have been sporting a 6s plus since launch. The 7 is tempting but still love the 6.

    Do you notice much difference in battery? I can't speak to the difference between the 7 to 7 Plus in terms of battery but the difference from the 6S to the 7 Plus in battery is night and day. Based on that reason alone I wouldn't go down in size. My wife loves her 7. I'm a Plus'er now.
