    Love my 7+...big phone no doubt but the software experience and performance of the hardware coupled with iOS10 is incredible. I am so pumped for iOS11. This device rocks, android you're fun but iOS has me won over. Never thought I'd say it lol.
    Same here. Came from windows mobile and 1020s. I loved that phone but MS made it hard to love the OS. My wife and I got our 6s'sss last year and still love everything about them. IPhone is the best mobile experience available. I am waiting, and if the 8 or whatever is not up my ally, I will keep my 6s as it is the perfect device. apple hit a HOME RUN with the 6s, and just a triple with the 7.

    Don't live your life waiting for the latest and greatest. The 7+ is supposedly better than the 6s+ but the 6s actually beats the 7+ in some areas. If you get the 8 I say wait for the faulty first 3-4 batches of phones to get pushed out then buy after those batches. Even if you get the iPhone forever through apple and pay the next 6 months it's only like a 200.00 cost to upgrade if that.

    There was some tests (performance wise) that were done showing the 6s+ performing better or on par with the 7+

    Oh OK, I read you were comparing the 7+ to the 6S, not 6S+.

    Up until the end of March, I had an iPhone 6 and went ahead and upgraded to the 7 Plus. While there was nothing wrong with my 6 and I could have waited until the next device release...my son was waiting on me to upgrade so he could replace his iPhone 5 with my 6. If we replaced the battery in his 5...it would likely still be usable but as it is only a 16gb...not really sure that it would be worth messing with. Anyway...I decided that since upgrading meant that my son would actually have a device that worked. And that he wouldn't have to have on the charger most of the day. ...Made sense to go ahead and get a new phone instead of waiting.

    The 6 was still totally fine. My teen loves it. But if it hadn't been for his need for a replacement...I would have most likely held off on the upgrade.

    If you're not having any hardware issues I'd wait

    Only 3.5 months until the next one is available, I'd wait.

    I'm waiting. Threw on a new case and a new screen protector to freshen it up a bit.

    That, and restore as new for that fresh out of the box feeling!

    Definitely wait. There's nothing you can do with the 7+ you can't do with the 6S minus some camera trickery. Unless you've got money to burn of course.

    More like 4-5 months if buying from Apple, longer through Telcos.
