    I went ahead and ordered a 7 plus for one of my other lines. It has a November ship date. That gives me time to truly see if I'm happy with the 7. If I decide to go large again, I can and one of the kids gets the 7 I have now. If I decide to stay in the 7, cancel the plus and no harm done.

    With my particular predicament I'll take the 7 if it ships sooner.

    I ordered a 7 128gb Black from my Telco, only $8 a month more than i am paying now and was already locked in for 2 years anyway, i have a 6S plus that is only 3 weeks old i picked up cheap and sold the 6S i had, the plus is great until you have to move around with it, my wife will get it and will sell her 6 plus for $600 so will come out $400 in front, if i really hate can sell the 7 and get a plus outright when available, but i doubt it i am over phablets and have a iPad for home anyway. Also the better camera doesn't concern me as i have a Nikon SLR to zoom with
    In the last 6 months i have had 6S plus>SE>6S plus>6S>6S plus, all bought and sold at a profit, i liked the 6S best.

    I think the battery life won't be even close to the plus version. There is over 1000Mah difference between these two.
    I'll be waiting for plus as I had once the 6 and hoped I would have waited for the 6+. Not saying I'm not tempted for the quicker solution to just walk to the store and get the new iphone 7 today.

    7 has similar battery use to 6S plus.

    for those worrying about the battery life just get the smart battery case. i love it i love how the case use its power first then it take from the phone afterwards once the case dies out. that is so smart.

    I ended up swapping out the iPhone 7 and went back to the plus. The improved battery of the 7 made it a more difficult decision than last year, but being used to the extra screen really was what swayed me. The size is not an issue for me, but I can see where it could be a deal breaker for some.
    Can't go wrong with either one, just have to figure out which one is best for you and run with it and never look back.... until next year.

    I think I have buyers remorse with the 7. I needed a phone while overseas and my 6s+ just didn't seem to be able to roam.

    I got a 7 three days after it went on sale and I figured I had the + and 6s + and most times it felt just oversized.

    I managed almost 8 hrs with minor phone calls and heavy messaging (FB Msg, WhatsApp) and some gaming.

    Now I think I'll go back to my 6s+ for now as the battery life felt better - I'll probably due a similar "test" like today's usage and try to make up my mind properly.

    Yeah. Too spoiled by the large screen was the ultimate deciding factor for me.

    This is how its for me, got the 6+ and then the 6s+, but towards May of this year I started getting tired of the plus size of the phone. So I sold that and got myself the 6s 128GB. And I was very happy with the shift in size, totally loved the one handed use, portability but wasn't happy with the battery life although it wasn't much of a deal breaker since I had chargers everywhere (work, car, home,etc).

    Then came the 7 and i was torn between the 2 sizes again as the 7+ had a better camera, etc. So preordered the 7+ Black 256 GB, got the delivery and here I am thinking of going back to the smaller size after using the plus for over a week. I don't know but its just the ease of use, smaller footprint, etc is what is pulling me towards it.

    I'm kinda glad that I'm not the only one in this.

    Well, the good thing is that the 7 and 7 plus are both great phones, so there really isn't a bad choice to be made. I could have stayed with the 7 and been ok with it but the plus size is my preferred device.

    I had predominantly larger android phones while still using smaller iPhones back in the day. I recently had a 6 and lost it due to water damage three times, yes I know I work by the water so this is something that is hard to avoid. Bought the iPhone SE after running out of my insurance claims and absolutely loved the smaller screen.. for like 1 month. Couldnt wait to get back on a larger due to its shear comfort of having a larger longer lasting battery and the screen size in which I wouldn't need to put my nose up to read what's going on screen. My friends and family have a little experience with the plus model iPhones and after using theirs for a day I absolutely fell in love with the shear content displayed on screen was awesome. I think the 4.7 screened iPhones are great for people who want something small but the 5.5 inch screen on the plus models are honestly the way to go.
    There's a reason most android phone screens are above 5 inches and that's because they are used to view content! So if you're not that person to view content or do some kind of productive work on your phone then the regular 4.7 screen or even the 4 inchers like the iPhone SE is great!

    So did you end up getting a 7 or 7 Plus? I'd think the water resistance would be a perfect fit for you.

    Oh ya picked up the 7 plus as soon as I heard it was water resistant and it does the job pretty well considering I'm always in a hot humid climate with salt water being sprayed everywhere. Absolutely loving it so far it's truly a great computer phone. The screen size seems to fit well with how the apps looks, meaning most/all apps are perfect resolution for the plus and won't get that zoom in apps to compensate for screen size like when the first iPhone pluses came out.. real turn off.

    I placed my order for a black 7plus 7 days ago and the estimated delivery date is 11/30/16. I simply can't afford to wait that long for a new phone. Specifically bc I moved over from ATT, and I'm using an unlocked iPhone 6 that will not work on VZWs network. So, I'm stuck with a phone that only works on wifi for nearly two months, Verizon can't fix my iPhone 6, and doesn't offer me any option other than to wait or purchase a $50 flip phone for the interim. I think today I'm going to just got get a 6s+ and hope that the 7+ becomes avail within the 14 day return period. If not, I can probably sell the 6s+, lose a little money, and just pay the difference to Verizon. It's pretty ridiculous that Apple ran out of iPhone 7+ models when they obviously targeted the majority of the market with that model having two cameras, more RAM, etc...

    Right after I typed this I went into a Verizon store. They had nothing. Sent me to Best Buy who told me they could get me a 7+ in 10 days. I then went to another Verizon store to cancel my order so that I could go back to BB, and Verizon said they could overnight me a 256gb 7+ and would let me trade in my iPhone 6 for $450 towards my new phone. Signed, sealed, and on its way! Boom! Illl have my new maxed out flat black 7+ by 10:30am tomorrow, and it's only going to cost me around $500. #SCORE

    I went with the instant gratification and got a 128GB 7. No regrets at all.
