    Has anyone upgraded from the 6s Plus to the 7 plus? Looking to see if worth it or wait til the "iPhone 8". I do take loads of photos which is swaying me due to the camera but not sure if that's the only reason I'm upgrading.

    try one at the store and play with the camera then compare what you're missing, most probably you're just hit by an "upgrade" bug. I don't know if the dual camera makes a difference for you just try in store

    Other than camera there is no big reason to upgrade. Stick with iPhone 6s Plus and wait for the anniversary iPhone

    I upgraded from the 6s Plus and I never look back. Battery life is better along with both cameras. I adjusted to the new Touch ID sensor instantly and love it over the physical button.

    Edit: forgot to mention the speakers. Much better quality and quite a bit louder!

    I switched from 6S Plus to 7 Plus only because I switched carriers. Love my 7 Plus.

    I upgraded to 7+ from 6S+ because why not? Eh was a lot of things, camera, volume on device MUCH louder while on speaker, water resistance... and black, really dig black phone. Functionally, camera comparison aside, they're VERY similar but upgrade was worth it for me. Going to try to hold out until 8/8S(whatever is after next big release this year)

    According to you, it's Because you don't own the iPhone 7 Plus to make an appropriate comparison to evaluate over time of the various differences. Incremental updates, but considering increased Battery life, Additional RAM, dual camera, better speakers, water resistance, increased speed with A10 Fusion processor and new home button.

    I went from the 6s to the 7 plus and I have no regrets. Phones these fast become hard to tell the difference but it is actually faster than the 6s. Love the new home button and the camera is phenomenal.

    Went from 6+ to 7+. Would wait for iPhone 8 if on 6+. Think there will be tons of new features this time compared to going from 6+ to 7+. The demand will be huge and it will cost a small fortune I reckon. Therefore, start saving now for it.

    yes-well worth the upgrade.
    smoother-much less buggy than 6s plus-probably due to 3gb ram vs 2-and the speakers alone were worth it to me.

    I upgraded from the 6S plus for the camera, water resistance, dual speakers and I improved screen. It's been worth it for me.

    I'm really surprised how much faster the iPhone 7 is vs 6S Plus... Am I crazy? Even typing feels way faster. Although if you're doing simple emailing and texting, casual browsing maybe it's not worth it. I upgraded by buying a discounted bestbuy refurb and really happy about the price!

    Right behind you.
    For me the elephant in the room was budget. I had paid the 6S plus off and wasn't ready to stretch for what seemed like minimal upgrades. I looked at the $700 and passed. I bought my daughter an iPhone 7 and she is in trouble enough that it's mostly mine. So I get a rough comparison of some of the tech of the 7plus. I'm waiting for 8 if I don't jump ship first (extreme flight risk:)

    I am definitely waiting. With a 6s + that is paid off and in the clear... not worth it. Phones these days are getting pricey.

    Went from 6 Plus to 7 Plus today. I decided my 6 Plus simply wasn't going to last until September and I know I won't be willing to pay whatever excessive price Apple pick out of their air for this fabled "anniversary iPhone." So far, very happy and not regretting the decision. Feels much snappier than my 6 Plus.

    I think my most favorite underrated feature in the iPhone 7 Plus, is the speed. It opens applications and multitasks much quicker than the 6S plus. With very little lag and jitter.

    If you have the duckets upgrade. If you don't then wait. I upgrade yearly because I can..... If you can why not do it?

    I have no idea what you're even talking about. I'm not even Referring to the 6S plus and I don't know what "Stuff" means. That's fine that you want to follow around my every post On this forum, but at least make a valid argument or be clear what you're referring to for a substantial discussion.

    What I was referring to, is that you make gripes and complaints about the iPhone 7 Plus, when you don't even own the device and or have tested (As you recently stated) it to make a valid argument. That was my whole point.

    I am not following your posts, you first quoted my post (check avobe)and i gave a answer to that. I love using my iPhone 6s plus and i don't want to upgrade (because iPhone 7 plus is not even a upgrade for iPhone 6 plus users)until iPhone 7S Plus comes out.

    Again, I have no idea what you're referring too. Your post is very confusing. What is a 7S Plus? Do you have pictures of the 7S Plus? Did Apple confirm this? How do you know Apple is going to release a 7S plus? Or are you believing every rumor that this website reports again?

    Went into the store and played around with the phone and loved the portrait mode - this maybe enough to sway me.

    If you can get a decent amount of money for your 6s plus to pay towards the 7 plus, I'd say upgrade. It's a much better phone for future IOS updates with it's quad-core processor and 3 gb of RAM. Also, the camera and speakers are a nice upgrade as well.
