    I have an iphone 5 and want to upgrade just to either one of the 6 or 7 iphones.

    I'm a basic user, texting, calls, FB, messenger, some apps, use Safari to look up things. I don't watch videos or even listen to music on my phone.

    I've done some research. Seems maybe the 6 plus is as good or better than the 7? Just wanted some recommendations.

    6 or 6s are almost as good as the 7. For your usage those would suffice. The prices you can get the 6 series phones also makes it a good VFM smartphone.

    The added advantage will be the headphone jack which is missing from 7 upwards.

    Hello there. Either choice should meet your needs just fine. Although I’d recommend getting the 7 since it’s only one year old.

    There’s also the option of buying an SE. it has the same form factor as your i5 paired with the processing power of the 6s

    I would get a 6s, rather than the 6.

    My siblings 6 are struggling running iOS 11.

    7 is better than the 6 Plus.

    However, since you’re coming from a 5, if you like its form factor, you might want to consider the SE.
