Hey everyone

So I just recently got a Samsung s7 Edge from work (I get to upgrade my phone every 10 months) and after using it since March 7th I realized I'm not an android person. I really tried to like it and I was thinking about keeping it longer, but I just can't. I love the screen quality, Camera, and the fact thats water resistant, but to me iOS is so much better and stable. Of course this is my own opinion. iOS works much better for me and thats why I made the decision to go back to the iPhone before is too late (return policy).

Right now I have an iPhone 6s 128gb that I was gonna put up for sale, but since I'm returning the s7 edge, I thought maybe I could get a 6s Plus and see how I do with a larger screen. Do you all think its worth it upgrading now to the iPhone 6s Plus or should I wait for the iPhone 7 Plus and keep my 6s? Thanks.

I think that you should wait for the 7+. It's less than 6 months away at this point, and if you can live with the smaller screen, waiting for the upgrade to the larger screen will be just that much more sweet. :D

If the larger screen isn't a deal breaker I'd stick with the iPhone 6s and see what happens with the iPhone 7 (Whatever they call it)

I moved from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 6 Plus due to eye sight issues and that I use the net heavily on it.

That said if the upcoming new iPhone, not the one reported to be this Monday doesn't impress ,I'll be looking at the Samsung s7 Edge personally.

The 6s Plus is a lovely phone. Go out and get one immediately and enjoy the six months you are going to lose waiting for the 7. Life is too short to spend half a year with something you are not happy with.

6s plus is a lovely phone and because you have 6s you must already know about all the bugs it has Of course most of which are gone in 9.3.
If money doesn't matter get a 6s plus and when 7 plus ( or whatever they call it ) is out you can upgrade.

2 weeks is all? is that so you can return it in 15-30 days? Time to adjust to Android or new iOS even when use to using both... I assume S7 Edge had 6.x Marshmallow? and that is new, and new hardware, and iOS 9.1-9.2.1 have not been perfect on 6S+ as you know. - I find it takes 6 months for hardware and OS to catch up and bugs to show (even iPhone 6 vs 6S or something revision changes during product cycle).

I think a six inch phone would be ideal size but more RAM. Waiting for next Galaxy Note 6 personally. I have had Note II, 5S, S6 and 6S+ and keeps from getting stuck in a groove. My S6 had trouble with battery and the touch ID which were deal breakers for me.

Went from the larger 6S+, which was way to big, than to the Samsung S7 Edge (Very nice all around) but Android was not for me, now I'm going to get the iPhone SE (hope) until the 7 comes out, and see if Apple makes the needed changes that most of us are hoping for. Doubt it. If not, I'll keep the SE until the 8 comes out, and keep the SE as a second phone.

6S+ as mentioned, has too wide of a frame for 5.5 inches. Bezel you know. That is why the S7 edge was selected for a short time. Try one out for size, and make sure you will be happy with it for the next 6 months.
