    Pulled the trigger on a silver 7 plus. Got it all set up tonight did a restore from iTunes and man I love this thing. Coming from a 6 plus this thing is pretty sweet. Glad I made the jump couldn't tell how laggy the 6 plus was until tonight. Sucks that you have to completely reset your watch and start over but didn't take to long. Very happy with this phone so far.

    The one thing that really hurt the iPhone 6 Plus was one GB of RAM, which ultimately slowed it down tremendously. Glad you like your new iPhone 7 Plus.

    And yet the 5s seems to be working like a champ.

    The 7+ is the best Plus model I've had to date. No complaints!!

    What did you mean that your 5S seems to be working like a champ? After the latest update?

    The 6 plus has a much bigger display to power.

    Same here. Just upgraded from a 6 Plus to a 7 Plus, and you can really tell how underpowered the 6 Plus was. This thing flies and has not stuttered. Such a worthwhile upgrade.

    Agree with all of you, my 6 didn't lag but boy does the 7 plus fly!

    I also upgraded from the 6+ to the 7+ and noticed a difference immediately in the speed and overall smoothness. It seems much more polished. I love the new home button!

    I recently went from a 7+ back to a 6. Yes, it is a bit slower. But other than the 1-second wait here and there, my 6 does everything just as well as my 7+, for my needs anyway.

    And I got the headphone jack back.

    I thought about buying a used 6S, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

    iPhone is getting to be like Macs. I have a 2009 iMac and 2010 MacBook. They are still going strong. Even though work will pay for a newer one, I have no desire to go through the trouble as they are doing everything I need them to.
