    I jumped on the 6s+ when it hit a year ago...mainly because all my buddies had the bigger phone. Almost immediately I was unhappy. I wear dress slacks or a suit to work almost every day, and the Plus was HUGE in my front pocket & looked unsightly, or so I thought. I also have smallish hands, and I could see I'd have a hard time using the device with one hand...so I excnanged it for a regular 6s. When the 7/7-Plus hit this last year, I picked up the regular 7 because of my prior experience, but after playing with some friends' Plus size phones, I began to really appreciate the larger screen and ease of viewing. The battery life of the Plus also put the smaller phone to shame...and I found I could easily adjust my grip to use the phone one handedly. So...with two days left of my 14-day exchange window, I swapped the smaller 7 for the Plus size phone...and have fallen in love with the thing. Are there some advantages of the smaller phone...yes. Are there advantages of the Plus...yes. I all comes down to making the pros outweigh the cons.

    So, I say own what makes you happy.

    Honestly I don't find the 7 plus to be big. I use very slim cases and I also can use b it one handed, but I've been using large phones since the note 2...honestly I tried going back to a smaller 7 but I couldn't stand the size way to small.

    I had an SE since launch (6S+ before that). But begun lusting for an iPad again (had many but always ended up selling them). So compromised and got a 7 Plus... it's really like an iPad Mini

    I'm a girl and I'm only 5 feet tall, less than 100 lbs I carry my 7+ in my back pocket or my front pocket, depending on my pants. They certainly don't make women's clothing like men's

    Like many others have said, you need to figure out what works for you. I agree with you about the SE, looking like the same phone you have had for several years.

    I'm sure you will find one that's right for you. Good luck!!

    Thanks guys! Regarding the SE, I wouldn't want to 'upgrade' to something that looks exactly like the phone I've had for the past 3 years if that makes sense. That's why I think I'll end up with the 6s (the regular sized one) as it's still bigger than the 5s which is what I wanted but at the same time not as huge as the 7 plus.

    If you don't mind me asking: please tell me: how do you carry an iphone 7 plus around..? Do you normally carry a bag and have it in your bag? Do inside your jacket? I just don't believe that people actually put this phone inside their jeans and walk around with that....huge rectangle shape on their jeans where the pocket is? I mean this as nicely and as genuinely as possible I just really want to know.
    I carry it in my jacket pocket (since it's early spring so I'm still wearing a jacket). I'm the summer I really don't know. Maybe I'll put it in my purse since I carry one anyway. There are purses with side pockets for phones. If you don't carry a purse and it's warm then that's an issue. I'd go for the regular size 7, rather than the plus if I were you. Good luck with your choice and enjoy!

    The only issue I have with IOS in general is the lack of customization. I don't mean being able to tweak every little setting, I mean just being able to layout my homescreen any way I want... Not having to stick to a rigid grid factor and not being able to change icons for apps. I'd love the ability to make my homescreen mine. Otherwise they've nailed the integration thing and the backup restore is great. Lots to love.

    It fits in my pockets with plenty of room, and I'm a girl with girl hands ( who can one hand use it). As I did with my 6S Plus, and 6 Plus...

    How small are your jackets? Lol.

    Seriously, sucks you don't like it. Good luck with the 6S (although I'd get a 7).
