    Hey Guys,

    I want your opinion. I need to buy a new phone but I was wondering if it is better to wait for iPhone 7 or buy now an iPhone 6s?

    Thank you! :)

    I think it all depends on your current situation. What is your current phone? What is it that you're looking for out of a new phone?

    If you have an iPhone 6, I would say wait until the 7. If you have a 6 or below, its worth considering the update. It all depends on how you feel about it, remember that Apple is there to sell you phones, so the next will always be better than the previous gen.

    As others have said, its a personal preference thing. For me, I decided it was time with this round. I had a 5s and, though eligible for the 6, I didn't upgrade then.

    Two reasons, I cant deal with the 4" screen anymore and the CPU/GPU in the 6S seems insanely fast which should carry me though for a couple years.

    I opted for the 6S instead of the plus as, FOR ME PERSONALLY (no hate plz), I find the PLUS size too large for a phone. My wife has a Plus though, and she LOVES it. Sadly, she likes em big... (sigh) :)

    IN any case, its your choice and I don't think you can make a wrong one. THe longer you wait, the better the phones will be and, in a year, something better will be released anyway. Knowing that this is ALWAYS going to be the case makes it easier to deal with. :)

    Good luck.

    I have an iphone 4s for more than 3 years. So I need something better with good specs. I am entrepreneur and photographer so I need a reliable phone with good battery.

    Personally I'm hanging on for another year. Happy with my 6, due an upgrade next august... with Apple pretty much 100% to release the 7 on their iconic month. So i think it's worth waiting to see what additions they make to 6S to make it a viable upgrade. Don't get me wrong, what they have upgraded is what we've been asking for (with regards to to camera). So them coupled with a potential shape, colour , button move about, and what with the multiple speakers on the iPad Pro could be something to come on the 7...(most probably size as opposed number of)..... So the future 7 could tenfold of the 6 :):)

    No reason to be sorry. A lot of people like it. Thats the beauty of this world. We need not agree on everything... what a boring place it would be if we did. :)

    Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy it...

    You did say you need battery life and, if thats the case, i would definitely suggest the Plus... The battery on the 6 plus is huge and will easily last all day and then some for you... at least my wife's lasts more than she needs forthe day and I swear she is constantly on the phone/using it. :)

    If you "need" to buy a new phone the 6S is for you. You did say you "need" to buy a new phone. The 7 is a year away!

    I upgrade every year; I used to upgrade twice a year (alternating iOS and Android flagships) but now I just stick to iOS once a year. It's not expensive at all, it barely costs anything

    When you sell the phone after a year you make most of your money back, well in the UK at least. I only lost £100 over the year

    Since you failed to trade in your 4s for $200 last year to get an iphone 6. (out of pocket would have been less than $200).

    Sounds like you can't afford to wait if you work with the phone.
