reading so much nonsense on here - I love my new 7\black\256\VZ the cam is great, the screen is great, its not yellow or blue, everything works and works well. faster even with the new processors. i can see a difference from my 6s in cam for sure. this one has a wider range of use. no lines, weird noises or chupacabra's embedded in the charging port.

I agree! I was out of town and just picked up my 7+ from my parents house where I had it delivered. Everything about this phone is perfect. I came from the 6. Reading these forums got me really nervous for what to expect out of the box.

Finally nice to hear someone loving their 7. After reading all the negativity on its release, I was beginning to not looking forward to mine which will be delivered this Wed.

I'm with you!! Love my iPhone 7 plus silver, 256gb. The camera is great! I'm coming from the 6s plus.

I agree. I upgraded my 6s+ to a 7+ and am really enjoying it.

Love the matte black color, also appreciate the better low light photos. The phone is blazing fast, and after a couple days of seemingly "breaking in", the screen is vibrant and colors are awesome (I've been repeatedly comparing this phone vs my wife's old 6, and the 7 plus display has changed/improved slightly over time).

Other features I'm liking so far: 2x optical zoom has proved to be useful so far. Stereo speakers are great! Surprisingly loud and powerful compared to the horrible 6s+ audio experience. FaceTime calls, speakerphone calls and YouTube vids have been far superior with the stereo setup. I really like the new home button and deeper integration of the Taptic Engine into iOS 10.

Things I'm less thrilled with: shutter speed. I'm not a huge photo geek, but is there a way to manually choose to speed it up? It seems awfully slow and it causes significant blur when taking action shots. The examples at the keynote of action shots were stunning - maybe I'm awful with a camera (totally possible), but I'm wondering how to get better with those. Also the bezels. I'd love to see this 5.5" screen in a slightly smaller body.

Generally though I'm very happy with my 7plus and consider it a solid improvement over my 6s+. My wife upgraded from the 6 to the 7+ and is seeing a massive difference.

I'm also in the love club.

Got the Matt black 7 128gb

Coming from a 64gb silver 6

It's rapid fast compared to my 6. Love the home button and 3D Touch. The screen seems nicer and smoother to touch I think. Haven't really used the camera that much at the minute but sure I will. All in all I love my new phone.

Has anyone upgraded from 4.7 to 5.5 plus? How are ya coping with the size difference?

I have a matte black 7 128 and there is one huge improvement - the Bluetooth connectivity is dramatically better. I had a 6 and often, it would take 60-90 seconds for my phone to hook up and sometimes it didn't, had to toggle BT off and on. Halfway to work, I'm still jerking around, trying to get my phone hooked up. The situation would only get worse when I would switch from one car to the other, that seemed to 'confuse' the phone. Shut the car off to go in a store, same story, rarely hook back up again.

The new 7 hooks up automatically as soon as I start the car, already hooked up before I can switch from reverse to drive. Doesn't seem to notice when I switch cars. Seamless.

Went from a 6 to 7 and man o man what a difference in speed. Love the new ios (i know, i can have that on the 6 and did) but it runs so smooth on the 7. Camera is a huge upgrade for me. Live photos are really cool and help me capture great moments with my son and wife. I really like the no home button (I know a lot of people don't) but I am still getting used to the force touch. I keep messing things up with that. Overall, I'm thrilled with it and love the 256gb size. No more deleting music, text convos, etc...
