    It does make a lot of sense to skip the 7s branding due to 2017 being a major year for the iPhone, but we'll know in due time. Thanks for the info!

    I have a 6s and it's been amazing. The only reason I'm going to 7+ is for that camera since I take a LOT of pictures with it in a regular basis

    No real reason to upgrade. But it's fun to do so.

    At this point upgrade every 2-3 years for "need". More often for want.

    I've talked myself into and out of upgrading from my great-running 6s a thousand times so far. An upgrade has always been such an easy justification for me...but not this time. I guess because the hardware didn't change much if any for the third year in a row...although I know there are upgrades to the camera, battery life & other things. It's a tough jump for me this year...

    well, after saying no on the first page of this topic, it appears I may be getting a 7 plus after all. While visiting my mother this morning, who I put on my phone plan a couple of years ago, she informs me that she wants a phone with a bigger screen. So, it looks like I will be trading in her iPhone 6 to take advantage of the current Verizon offer, and giving her my 128gb 6s plus. This has an added bonus of not having to constantly delete things she no longer needs in order to free up space on a 16gb iPhone.

    I'm not upgrading personally because there aren't enough new features for me to move from a 6s to a 7.

    I went from 6s to 7 and other than the home button, I don't really see much of a difference. I haven't really played around with the camera yet though. In my opinion, unless one of the new features like improved camera and water proofing, means a whole lot to you, it isn't worth it. Performance is too similar to justify the upgrade. If I had not already sold my 6s, I would return the 7.

    Is it the best iPhone ever? Yes. How much better than the 6s? If the 6s is a 9/10, the 7 is a 9.2/10. Before people get angry at me, this is my opinion.

    Not sure what we're seeing.. what is whatever this is stopping you?

    Looks like two iPhones one plugged in, one not.. one with a regular screen and one with night view turned on or something.. what does that have to do with the 7?

    Couldn't stand what? Night shift? You don't have to use night shift. If not that, what do you refer to?

    I'm doing the same thing. I bought my mom a 16gb regular 6 last summer outright, so with the Verizon trade in promotion I am turning that in and giving her my 64gb 6S. She likes the size but is always filling up the 16 so everybody wins!

    I saw most of iPhone 7 reviews and I was not impressed. I am definitely keeping my 6s plus.

    I upgraded because I caved on release day and I was going to consider a GS7 as well. I'm four days into it and I am debating returning it even though I traded my 6s. It feels like the same phone although it is faster, it has OIS, 128 gb, and is now waterproof. Still, the GS7 has better specs IMO. I think I'm going to return and go Android for a new experience until the 8 comes out.

    surprised no one said they upgraded because of the promo. I had a 6s. My son had a 6. I traded in his 6, get $650 credit, and I gave him my 6s. I get the 7

    and isn't the 7Plus for girl? I always thought that was a purse phone. If you don't have a purse, you have to hold it. Doesn't really fit in a pocket.

    I've heard a lot of things about the Plus phones, but I've never heard them referred to as "girl phones." In my experience, women tend to prefer the smaller device. I'm on my third Plus and rarely have an issue keeping it in my pants pocket.

    My husband uses it daily and without issue, it fits his pockets just fine in his Levi 501s.

    Likewise I'm a female who can't use the smaller phone.

    Stereotyping sucks. Don't do it.

    More memory was the main reason I upgraded from the 6s. I haven't figured out the best way to save my 100+gb of pics and vids from my iPhone and my MacBook only has 256gb and only 40-50gb free. So the 256gb at the same price as the 6s 128gb was an easy choice for me. Also, the matte black looks great and the camera is noticeably better in low light situations.

    I am glad I upgraded from a 6s to the 7. It's faster, better screen which I notice outside with higher brightness, better speakers and louder output on headphones, the stereo speakers are now passable to use for listening to music. I really like the new home button, better camera, water resistance it an excellent new feature, and I like the additional battery life. Added bonus is new matte Black color without visible antenna lines (I don't use a case). Added all up, this is a nice upgrade and I feel better about it than all the articles I was reading heading into the release.

    The iPhone 7 is a bit like when Porsche or BMW do a mid-model update. The exterior looks about the same but new motor, electronics, etc.

    Well I've just gone and got a IP7. Coming from a 6s plus feels really small but for work reasons didn't want to lug a large phone around. So far so good.

    As someone above said, I only upgraded due to the promo. Traded my 6+ for the 7 (was tired of the huge phone) so I also got the iPad mini 2 for $50 for reading or FaceTime. That's one thing about the Samsung line - I had as S7 edge with a 5.5 inch screen and it felt so much smaller than my 6+.

    I've been struggling with the same thing. My 6S had been great, and it sounds like the processor is only marginally better, so it's a question of a little better battery life and waterproofing. This is the first time since the IP4 that I haven't felt compelled to get the newest.
    I did upgrade my Apple Watch to Series 2, which was a no brainer with the GPS and waterproofing, but the 6S to 7 is really a minor upgrade.
