    I upgraded from a 6 to the 7 Plus about a month ago. Yes, I won't be that long until the next iPhone comes out but my son's 5 was not going to last much longer. In our house, parents get the new device and the kids get the hand me downs. So I went ahead and got the 7 Plus so my son could have my fully functional 6. I love my new phone.

    Lots of good feedback here, and surprising how many said to go for it. Think I'm going to try to hold out if I can, but keep 'em coming (I may change my mind!)

    I was a little surprised too, but if the next big jump in the iPhone is delayed then you might as well get the 7 Plus and enjoy it. It's real and you can actually buy it. If you wait for the 7s then the iPhone 8 or X or whatever will probably be a few months behind and who knows how available that will be. There will always be something new right around the corner. Just my two cents being offered at a discount.

    One huge benefit of buying Apple products is they hold their value so well. Buy the 7 Plus and flip it on Swappa in September if you can take the hit. But it's not like you have an iPhone 4, the 6S is perfectly fine. I'd wait.

    I also think a major factor of the fact that i went with a 7+ last weekend (really late to the game) is i know this device will be supported with iOS updates over the next 3 years. We know the new iPhone will be better in some way or form, but as mentioned i could get the 7+ now and wait for the redesign to get a refinement next year. Point is i dont think you can lose, if you get the 7/7+ now or wait for the new iPhone you're set its just a matter of getting whats important to you.

    I bought a 7+ a month ago. Resale will be strong and I went on the Apple upgrade program so I have options come release time for the iPhone 8. If you want one now? Go for it. Terrific phone, I really love mine.

    In 2 months max I should have V20 paid off and plan on getting 6s Plus or 7 plus. Thought about 8 but rumors about price scares me. 7 plus is 32 is pushing money limits. Any suggestions? By the way am fairly new to Apple. Got new iPad 2 months ago and am loving iOS. Loved it so much I got Apple TV 4th gen. Anyway thanks for all you guys and gals do here.

    One reason to consider iPhone 7 is the fact that the Apple's A10 Fusion chip still performs better in single-core compared to the Snapdragon 835/ Exynos 8895 of Galaxy S8. Source:

    The best option will be to wait till the next iPhone!

    I just upgraded from a 6s plus to a 7 plus, and have no regrets. I'm sure it's just a placebo effect, but I enjoy using the 7 plus much more than the 6s plus. Combine the iPhone 7 plus with the updated Apple leather cases, and I don't know if there's a better cellular experience right now ...

    I did much the same thing, I bought an iPhone 6s Plus last year in July. No regrets. The $300 discount from Verizon helped, of course.

    You'll like the better battery life from the iPhone 7 Plus. All the smaller upgrades, such as the tactile feedback from the upgraded taptic engine throughout the system, the dual speakers, the brighter screen with wide color gamut, and faster performance with better graphics, it will seem like a completely different device.

    I totally get where you're coming from. I attended one of Apple's "Photo Walks" last weekend, and got to play with a 7+. I was totally hooked, and would love to have one. However, I'm not due for a new phone until December at the earliest. So I'm biding my time and will probably get the next version. I have decided to go from a regular to a plus size. Keep us posted on what you decided to do!

    I just went from IPhone 6s to 7 plus. I know the iPhone 8 is gonna be way to expensive and likely very hard to get right away. Go for it in my opinion. The IPhone 7 plus is an amazing phone and will be getting updates for awhile

    Personally, the iPhone 7 Plus has been my favorite iPhone of all time (I've had every incarnation since the 3G). I keep telling myself I will probably keep it for another year. I'm kidding myself though, once I see the 8 I will want it.

    If you want one, go for it. Worst case scenario, you really want the 8, then sell the 7 plus and get it.
