    Hi, I'm getting a new iPhone, I'm not sure which one to get. The 7 is obviously more expensive than the rest, however is faster and has new features I guess. I won't be upgrading for atleast 2 years. Which one should I get? Thanks.

    If you're not going to upgrade for at least 2 years why would you even consider the 6?

    Take the 6s.

    6 has just 1gb ram, and with this touch disease it's risky
    6s- has 2 gb ram, better materials , better camera, better cpu,gpu, better glass, 3dtouch, better touch id sensor
    7- it's expensive and it's like a 6SS so it's a matter of prefference :)

    IMO take the 6s

    I would say at least a 6s.

    I upgraded from a 6+ to 6s+ and can feel the speed difference, I was never happy with the 6+ performance, some delays. I only upgraded because I needed an unlocked phone to support SIM cards in China but very happy with the 6s performance.

    The iPhone 6S is the sweet spot pricewise and with its 3DTouch & Touch ID being more reliable and instantaneous compared to the iPhone 6. It should hold you over until the iPhone 8 makes its appearance.

    The info on the 7 didn't knock my socks off. This Saturday, I traded in my 6+ for a 6S+. Wow... Totally impressed with how fast it is, like the 3D Touch features and I REALLY wanted the Rose Gold color after seeing it in person. My 6+ was just under 2 years and was starting to have some small issues and with iOS 10 releasing tomorrow, I think the 6S+ is a better choice to make full use of the new operating system. Like lots of people, I think next year will be a big year for the iPhone. I'm sure I will want to upgrade to that one and I'll keep this one as a backup.

    I agree with the previous post. I'm not impressed with the 7 and after doing the math, it's going to be one expensive iPhone when adding Apple Care +. My wife has a 6s+ and that's what I'm going to get. Our local Apple Store has plenty of them in stock.

    The 6s is still is and will be a great iPhone for yeas to come, especially with the upgraded storage and price cut. The iPhone 7 is more future proof and the latest and greatest.

    My iPhone 7 will be here on Friday.

    I'm in love with my SE. Though I had a 6s plus before I had my note 5 and that was amazing. I'm into one handed operation (get your mind out of the gutter!) so I like small phones.
