    Good to hear! Did you ever have a Pixel? That's the only thing tempting me away. But I'd love to be in the Apple family with phone, watch, TV, ipad, etc. Just works so well together.
    I did have a Pixel XL for about 10 days. It was a great phone. I did struggle with justifying the price. In the end it was that and really wanting to be on the same OS as most of my contacts that brought me back. I was not 100% sold on the 7 but I felt the 7 Plus offered enough to bring me back. It was the right decision. I'm very happy with the Plus.

    Curious question I have here as I've been a Plus user for some time... But lately I've tried out a few other phones (including the iPhone 7) at the smaller, easier to hold size. Would you ever consider downsizing to the smaller form factor, or is the tricked out camera and massive battery life too much for you to pass up?
    If the battery and camera came in a smaller form factor I would absolutely downsize. But for my uses, the battery is a must have. I could live without the camera although I love it.

    I tried to use the 7 after spending the last two years on the 6 plus and 6s plus. I loved the easier handling, but the battery and screen size of the plus ended up bringing me back to the plus.
    As some others have mentioned, ehile the 7 is more comfortable to use one handed, it's hard to go back to the regular size after you've adjusted to the plus.

    I might for an iPhone 8, but the battery life in the Plus is so good, is really hate to downsize to a smaller screen and battery.

    I am hoping with the 8 they shrink the bezels and move the dual camera to the smaller model just like they brought OIS to the smaller model. I tried a plus and it is just unwieldy for one hand use. So for now it is the 7 and the apple battery case.

    Eww, no. I had the iPhone 7 and it has terrible battery life. I upgraded to the 7 Plus and I'll never go back.

    Far from "terrible" If you think the 7 has terrible battery you should have used the 6/6s and see how awful the battery truly was with those devices.

    Short answer, no. Note 4, Droid Turbo 2, and Nexus 6P, I have gotten used to larger devices.

    The only thing that I like from smaller phones is that you can hold them nicely with one hand. But aside from that I prefer doing all my stuff with a bigger phone, so its a no for me.

    Every now and then I feel a smaller device would fit better in my hand and pocket. But, when I grab my iPhone 7 Plus to use it, am quickly reminded why I bought it

    I did consider before upgrading to the 7, actually. But in the end, I just couldn't do it. I admit there are times the Plus is a bit unwieldy (especially with a case), but I just love the bigger screen and especially the battery life.

    Never would I get a small screened phone again... plus the screen resolution on the 7 is terrible... i really hope they update the PPI for iphone 8 or whatever it will be called. I do alot of work email on my phone so smaller screens dont work for me...
    Ive always had a Note phone or the plus model of the iphone.

    I believe I would miss the Plus size more than I miss the smaller size.

    No I couldn't go back to the smaller size. I use my phone way to much to read books & do other things. I would have eye strain to the point my vision would get super blurry an it would cause me to have a massive headache. As soon as I switched to the plus that problem disappeared.

    Yes. I am seriously considering doing so during the next iteration of iphones. The plus' bezels is just too big for the display size making the phone quite unwieldy.

    I have had my 7+ for a couple weeks now and I am very happy switch the size. I came from a Blackberry Z30 so I would not go smaller. I even find myself not using my iPad Air as much as I used to because the screen size of the 7+ is great.

    I have gone back n forth with both of them. Last 2 years I had the Plus variant but around summer of '16 I got tired of the weight and sheer size of the Plus so I got the 6s. Gotta say I absolutely loved the portability of the 4.7 inch form factor along with all the other positives. But when the 7 came I immediately got the Plus for the better screen, dual camera system, extra 1GB of ram. After a week of using the 7 Plus I went got the smaller one just to compare the both in real day to day use. Loved the smaller form factor again but the fact that it was lacking some features from the Plus I gave it back.

    But now that I reflect on having the Plus, the only thing that I really enjoy is the extra battery life. Never used the portrait mode, hardly use the telephoto lens (its not useful in low light) and that extra 1GB of ram seems redundant.

    So yeah here I am thinking of getting the 7 again (I have a disease ) and staying with it for sometime.
    Used 7 plus for 2 months but got camera blackout problem and was offered regular iphone 7 in exchange i did not hesitate a bit because i did never used portrait mode and while extra real estate and battery were good but at times i felt like holding a huge slab in my hands all the time ... iphone 7 is a different story though u get all features except a gig of ram and extra battery battery but on the bright side it charges fast .... yesterday played few 4 k videos on youtube on my regular 7 and it blows my mind how good it was on such small screen!

    I hear you. But having said that I went back to the plus just for the screen real estate. I found the 7 a little small when consuming media like YouTube, etc.

    But like I said, I do have a disease so I'm pretty sure I'll be going back n forth between the two.

    I went from a 6 Plus to a 7. So, yes. Battery took a hit, but being able to hold it in one hand and it being able to fit in my pocket is enough of a tradeoff for me.

    Tried the bigger form factor with the 6 plus. Way too big for my liking. I always briefly think about going to the plus and end up sticking with the regular. Can't handle the size. When there are more amazing features on the pluses, I may switch.
