    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?

    I did it for the 6S Plus to the 6S with the smart battery pack. I have a feeling I'm going to end up doing the same in this case. The camera thing really isn't as important to me as it is to others.

    I have an iPhone 7 and every time I handle my old iPhone 5 I think; this thing is so nice in the hand...maybe I should get an iPhone SE.

    I personally can't imagine going back to a smaller size.

    Yes. I was mere moments away from keeping the iPhone 7 instead of swapping it out for the iPhone 7 Plus. Even after swapping it out, I almost drove back to the Apple Store to exchange the iPhone 7 Plus for another iPhone 7. Having said that, yes, I can see myself downsizing to a smaller iPhone, but not the size of the SE model.

    Absolutely not!
    I handle 6 and 6s on a daily basis and they feel microscopic

    Well, yeah...if I absolutely had to, of course. But, after having the 6, 6s & 7...and jumping to the larger phone, I've grown accustomed to the positive attributes of the Plus and learned to get past the things that are undeniably bogus about it (bezel size & weight). I really like my Plus, and wouldn't want to downsize.

    I kind of miss being able to text one handed, but the Walking Dead wouldn't be the same on the 7 screen

    I did switch to the smaller size. From a 6 Plus to a 6s Plus to a 6s and back to a 7 Plus. The smaller size is much easier to handle, however the screen real estate, battery life, and camera bumps are enough to keep me going back to Plus.

    I had an iPhone 6s and battery life was poor. In my opinion upgraded to an SE and I have twice the battery life, form factor is great and I love to use it naked as it is beautiful compared to the 6s. 4" screen sounds terrible to some, I do have big hands and typing with the default keyboard is not an issue

    I have weighed in my head going from the 7plus to the 7 but I know I would be right back on a plus device. I am hoping Apple comes out with a 5.0/5.1 inch device.....Or just gets rid of all these bezels come the 7splus or 8.

    Nope, I did it from the 6+ to the 6S, and now I'm looking to get a 7+.

    I do miss the smaller form factor.. but I know that if I get the smaller iPhone, I would eventually miss the Plus.

    No way! I got the 7 and exchanged for the 7 plus. Battery life alone is enough, but I love the bigger screen.

    I've owned every model iphone ever made, same thing with the Galaxy's and Notes (except the Note 7)

    When the iPhone 6'es first came out I went 6+ to 6, then 6s+ to 6s,,,, this time around I got the iphone 7 first then the 7+, which is my current daily driver, but I'm thinking really seriously about going back to the 7.

    I'm very comfortable with larger phones and loved all my Notes, but the iPhone Pluses are just too big to handle with total comfort.
    In 2017 Apple will hopefully come out with a big screen phone without the huge bezels.

    Anyhow, with my past iPhones, going back to the smaller size was way easier than trying to get used to the giant size.

    Cheers

    I can see the smaller iPhone's appeal but a wouldn't want to miss the big one's utility. So I guess I would only downsize in addition to the Plus-model

    That's why I'm getting a 7+ to replace my 6S.

    Absolutely not. I started out with the iPhone 6 but my eyesight is so bad that I upgraded to the plus 3 months later.
    I got the 7 Plus this time and it's as perfect as a phone can get.
    Interestingly, in one of my volunteer gigs a guy has the regular 7 and he really loves it but everytime I look at his phone I am glad I got the Plus.
    In my other volunteer job someone has exactly the same 7 plus as mine and to us it just feels like a normal phone. I could never go back to the regular size.
