I’ve seen a lot of mention of 7 upgrading to XS, and 7 Plus to XS Max, but what about 7 Plus to XS...

Should I be expecting a huge downgrade in battery life? I really like that the XS squeezes a slightly larger screen into a slightly smaller body, and as such, it will be a bit more pocketable

[doublepost=1538013098][/doublepost]I upgraded from a 7+ and I’m loving it. Super easy to get used to and I’m not noticing any less in the battery dept. Its a perfect upgrade!

I upgraded from a 7 to xs. The jury's still out, but I might return it. I'm unhappy with the larger size. For me, it's too bulky.
To each his own. Others welcome the bigger size.

I upgraded to the XS from the 7 Plus. Love it, no regrets

Same. Been nothing less than utmost satisfied with the XS. I really see what others meant when I read reviews with "the XS was meant for people with older iPhones to encourage them to make the switch to the X series, rather than those with the year old X".

I'm happy. I don't miss the Plus size at all.

Agreed from the moment I put that phone in my pocket I was sold. It isn't so small I don't feel it, but it isn't a brick in your pocket either. Not sure if it is the OLED but the fonts and writing are clearer for me as I don't have to grab the reading glasses to read them :)
