    I keep telling myself to wait for the iPhone 8, but yet I keep going to the AT&T store or Best Buy and playing with the 7 plus. Damn it is so much faster than my 6 plus (duh, 2 generations back). But the speed difference is making me hard to wait to upgrade

    Plus the new haptic home button I'm digging!

    I am waiting. I bought my 6s in either January or February and am very happy with its performance--in my opinion, there weren't enough changes for me to upgrade. I am looking forward to what 2017 brings in terms of form factor, internals, etc.

    I upgraded since I was coming from the 6 which didn't have 3D force touch, BUT if I had an S I probably would have waited.

    Yes I skipped because my iPhone 6 still works fine and there's still not enough of a gap in features to make me shell out more money for a new iPhone.

    I already had a 6S Plus, so I decided to wait it out for the "tenth anniversary".

    I'm trying to get a Plus but the wait is still 3-4 weeks. Guess if I had ordered 3-4 weeks ago I'd have it by now

    Surely from the 5/5s/SE you want a 7...but from the 6 and especially 6s it seems like a waaaaay overly incremental upgrade

    It depends on the use case, in my opinion. I take a ton of pictures and videos with my iPhone and the camera on the 7 Plus is way better than anything in the 6/6s series, especially in low light and when zooming. Also, portrait mode is really, really cool. That being said, I'm generally an annual upgrader anyway and don't nearly represent the general population of smartphone users.

    My 6 Plus was acting up, so I decided to upgrade. Otherwise I'd have waited.

    I am waiting for iPhone 8, on the iPhone 6 right now. Mainly because I feel they will step it up for the 10th anniversary iPhone. Partially because I'm not patient when it comes to tech, and I'm testing myself.lol. It's hard sometimes.

    Nop, I wanted to buy the 7 Plus for a year now, ( I skipped the 6 and the 6s because my 5S was still okay), but since the 7 Plus was introduced I've decided to buy it and also buy the 8 Plus -or however they'll call it- when it comes out.

    I'll just sell the 7 Plus and spring for the 8 Plus out of pocket.

    Nope! Because resale value is so high on iPhones it's quite possible to get a new one each year for only a few hundred bucks.

    Yes, I skipped the 7's. I have the 6 Plus and am very happy with it. There wasn't enough in the 7's to upgrade - glad I waited.

    Didn't skip since I switched back from android. I probably will skip the following model of the 8 depending on improvements.

    I know its very hard waiting @mchi5. Is there a specific feature you are waiting for in the next iPhone (iPhone 7s or iPhone 8)?

    Otherwise, i would say just get the iPhone 7. The upgrade is definitely worth it (from iPhone 6 probably not worth it from 6s). It's a very nice device and as you said, the speed difference is big and it has the haptic home button with 3D Touch.

    I was going to skip the 7... but I caved. Lol... had the SE for a year and wanted to go back to a phablet (has 6S+ before SE) so got a 7+.

    Although with rumors of the 8 being released later than usual might not have been a bad choice. Loving this 7+ so far.

    With an 8, same body with larger edge-to-edge screen would be nice and/or same 5.5 screen but smaller body due to edge to edge again.

    I had the 6s plus (which got stolen) but did not upgrade to the 7 for the following reasons: fast charging, same design, same resolution ergonomics.
    If the 8 gets the new OLED screen with higher resolution , fast charging and a more compact design then I will be sold
