    Hey, how is your battery life on the 7? What kind of user are you. Now I'm debating if I want the plus or not. I don't want to have to charge my phone during the day
    I'm a pretty heavy user and can almost ALWAYS make it to the end of the day without charging. I came from a 6 Plus and I wasn't satisfied with the battery life, so I think this 7 Plus is just way more efficient.

    I asked about the regular 7, I definitely need the plus model for battery life

    I used to be a Pixel XL owner (and would still be) but it got stolen so I'm on a friend's LG G3 until my iPhone 7 Plus arrives.
    I liked the Pixel. It didn't have layers on layers of crap (Android + Carrier + Manufacturer). I think I'll like the 7 Plus for the same reason.

    What made you decide to get the 7 Plus instead of getting another Pixel XL?

    I had an iPhone 5 prior to the Pixel and I liked my experience. However, I still decided to give the Pixel a shot, since I thought it seemed to be an interesting device.
    Although I REALLY liked what I saw in Apple's September Keynote, I still decided to go with a Pixel. But since it got stolen, I have seen that as a good opportunity to try that 7 Plus, combined with iOS 10 and if I end up disliking it (which I highly doubt), I can always return it within 14 days and get another Pixel!

    May be in wrong forum but have been with Droid about 6 years, currently on s4. Am thinking about upgrading. Stepson and few others are happy with iphones. Others tell me to stay with droid. What is big difference and how hard is it to switch to iphone

    I have been on the iPhone 7 plus for a good long while and I must say it's about as perfect an iPhone you can get. But Android still feels like a more familiar device choice for me...

    I believe at some point iOS had to become more complicated. With more customization and features comes more complications.
    Agreed. I feel like over the last few years Android and iOS have pretty much become close to a draw. Android has gotten cleaner and smoother (more iOS-like) while iOS has started to add more features and therefore more settings to dig through (more Android-like). They both still have their weaknesses but those are getting to be fewer and fewer.

    They are becoming more alike, therefore, making it easier to switch between the two platforms.

    Just wanted to state that I was one of those people who was always tweaking and changing and maximizing and asking questions and comparing battery stats, blah, blah, blah.....

    Now that I've come to the iPhone 7 Plus after almost 10 years exclusively on Android Flashgships, it's SUCH A RELIEF to be content with my phone and OS just the way it is. I'm thankful for it every time I use my phone.

    I just poked my head in over in some Pixel forums, and it's riddled with people whining about and comparing screen in time and other battery stats.... it is almost embarrassing that I spent so much time on that stuff in the past. Haha.

    I'm glad I don't have to deal with that crap anymore.
    How did I miss this thread?

    Yes, Pixel owners are highly annoying. "Buttery smooth" seems to be the phrase du jour that just needs to die a fiery death. I'm having a conversation with some of them and they think that the Pixel "just works" and is "the best Android phone ever" because of the smooth software experience. I laugh at that. The 128GB Pixel XL almost costs as much as the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus but it lacks IP67 rating, it lacks OIS, the camera has terrible lens flaring issues, it has weak LTE and WiFi signal, it has a boring design (what's up with that glass back?), it has pointless bezels, and there's no stereo speakers.

    I think ultimately you've got pros and cons to both platforms. Some apps are better on one than the other, and vice versa. Each platform has advantages and disadvantages. The people who cry out how superior theirs is over the others need to get a life, and I see an equal amount of that on both sides of the equation.

    ...except that there isn't. The only good thing about the Pixel is the software. Everything else sucks about it. The hardware is a huge disappointment for a phone in that price point. If the Pixel/Pixel XL had decent water resistance ratings and higher storage options, I probably would've kept it. But considering that it lacks many of the great hardware features that are currently present on Samsung and Apple phones, it's just no contest. I don't know why many are willing to give the Pixel such a pass when it doesn't deserve it.

    This is....interesting....

    We all like our phones. I love my iPhone. Though I peek at the Pixel here and there. I don't think I'd categorize either group of owners as anything though. Nothing wrong with taking pride in our devices regardless of what they are.

    I guess it depends on how how excited you are about dual speakers and water resistance. To me they don't matter at all. To some like you they may. To others, headphone jack may be the deal breaker, or presence of virtual reality. Some might say the iPhone sucks for the price range since it doesnt have a good assistant, a headphone jack and lacks VR.

    I have an iPhone 7 plus and never used a pixel, so I don't care that much, just think people get too wrapped up in stupid phone comparisons, or assuming what matters to them personally is the end all be all.

    I feel like I hear these same things being said about iPhones lately. It's possible that the Pixel, like our iPhones, do everything the owners need and they don't require more features just for the sake of features?

    Having IP67 on the iPhone 7 Plus isn't there just for the sake of features. It's there so that if we accidentally spill wine or water on our phones, it won't die. Water resistance isn't some frivolous feature thrown onto phones. It's necessary, especially on a phone that costs OVER $1,000, like my 256GB 7 Plus.

    Funny, since I feel the same way even with the Android devices I PICK. Take the Nexus 6P. I NEVER rooted or flashed anything since having it. It just worked that well for me "out the box". Smooth and polished still. I even like the camera.

    This OnePlus 3T I'm testing. The options and ability to change/customize WITHOUT rooting is a huge pro for me. It not perfect. But the pros outweigh the cons. Especially when I think about what I paid for this 128GB model compared to other devices.

    Maybe I will go back to using my 256GB iPhone 7 Plus as my daily driver. But that doesn't take away anything from the other devices.

    Yet our phones JUST got that feature...
    Not to mention I've never exposed my phone to liquid and I personally would be fine without water proofing. It's not necessary in a world where we can purchase cases for waterproofing if our needs require it. I personally wouldn't look down on any phone that lacks it.
