    The title says it all, I think.
    I have to replace my dying iPhone 5c and my dead iPad Air. I was thinking of getting an iPhone (7?) Plus to unify the two devices. While I like watching some movies and do some minor productivity work on the iPad, I don't think I need the big screen, and a Plus size phone will just serve me well when I commute or when I am on a plane.
    Note taking and annotations, however, may be a problem. I use Notability on the iPad and I love it. I loved it on the first generation Mini, I love it even more on the Air. Would the screen size of the iPhone be a major limiting factor here?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I think it will be harder to do the same going from a 9.7 inch screen to a 5.5 inch.
    Maybe test it out and get some hands on with a plus model iPhone before you decide.

    In the middle of several books.
    Notability works well on the iPhone 7 Plus, depending on what kind of handwritten notes you wish to create. I can create and see basic notes easily on said device.

    Simple meeting notes and maybe some mind maps, nothing crazy.
    Thanks for your replies

    The Pencil works super on the iPad Pro but it's not available on the iPhone 7, is it? I can't imagine doing much drawing or note taking with my finger or the regular stylus on the phone. I use Notability all the time on my iPad Pro and absolutely love it.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Pencil capability on the 7S plus.

    There are some good styluses (or styli, don't know which one is the right one) around, so that's not a problem :) Granted, pencil support would be great.
