    Same exact situation here.

    Same previous phone and watch.

    Very smooth,slick and yeah here it goes..... just works.

    And works really well very smart ui and makes a lot of sense.

    My only gripe and it's a pretty tiny. But I can see a very tiny speck of dust in the upper left hand corner.

    It's only visible on a white background and it is tiny.

    Just bugs me that a really expensive "premium" iPhone... one that is supposed to be dust and water proof gets a visible speck of dust in the screen less than a week of owning it.

    I made the switch simply because was fed up with my situation having had the recalled Note 7 and jumped on the Note 5 because I wanted to remain in the Note series. Unable to have the 64 gig because it was decided on Samsung not to move forward I decided it was time to make the switch. And my Samsung watch being able to work on the iphone was the excuse I needed to make the switch. I think timing is eveything because I was offered a 529 trade in on my Note 5 when I upgraded to the iphone plus. I am very happy with this beautiful phone. It is smoothe as silk and the battery life is the best ever. Shortly after there was an update and I was nervous because there is always a problem with Android when an update is ready to download. I was told by friends when I made the switch I would be happy that these issues are not with Apple updates. I didn't have any issues .Same with my newly received ipad Pro. Even though my Samsung watch works I did make the choice to get an apple watch and found a great deal on ebay with a lot of extras that came with it. I am pleased with all my personal Apple products. I wasn't completely new to the iOS because the company I work for uses the ipad and it is a tablet I use daily for many things required on my job.
    I wasn't always positive on the comapny. I knew they had great products. I wasn't always positive on Samsung either and have always been a Samsung customer.

    I think I've shared this story in other areas, but I'll share it here too.

    I was 100% Android since day one and my wife was 100% iPhone. We never got into the "mine is better than yours" discussions, but more along the lines of what each others would and wouldn't do. The one thing I have said since my first smart phone is that Apple just plain works. Period. Well, in April of 2016 I took the plunge and got a 6 S Plus 64 gig and liked it right from the start. I followed with an Apple Watch, Apple TV and iPad Pro. I really like being part of the Apple family. Again,it works. I loved my Android devices, but being a partial developer and custom rom user, I really got tired of the constant (at least it felt constant) phone reboots, either intentional or accidental. In the entire time I've had my 6 S Plus, the only reboots I've had to do is when there were iOS updates.

    2 days ago, I gave my son my 6 S Plus 64 gig. He had a 6 16 gig so for him it was an upgrade, and I got the 7 Plus 128 gig. Other than Portrait Mode, storage and home button, I really can't tell much difference from the 6 s Plus. The test will come Tuesday at work when I see how much battery is left after a day of work. From what I've been reading, I should see a difference.

    I just switched from a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge myself. I love the iPhone 7 Plus just because I know it'll get updates and the hardware is almost on par with Samsung (no wireless charging I can live without it). I'll be sticking with iPhones for a very long time.

    The 7Plus will work with wireless charging but it is not like that of Samsung. I don't want to mess with it. I found out when I had called Verizon about the Samsung watch being compatible. That is what enabled me to make the switch. But I caved and got the Apple Watch and haven't used my Samsung watch except for a couple of times. I am loving the battery life of my 7Plus and not missing the issues with my Note 5 an battery issues. I had all the Notes and the Note 7 was the best...unfortunately we know how that worked out. I am pleased and not turning back. Have the iPad Pro 12.9 as well
