I have a friend who's asking for my advice

He wants to get either an iPhone 7 with a smart battery case or an iPhone 7 plus (both of which cost the same)

He has an iPhone 6 at the moment & is a heavy user
He uses his phone mainly for business - text, phone , email social media & sometimes an occasional game. He doesn't care about the camera but just wants a phone which will last him the full day

I'm leaning towards the iphone 7 with a smart battery case but the iphone 7 plus is such a great phone

Which would you pick , iphone 7 with a smart battery case or an iPhone 7 plus ?

I would say plus. I'm a heavy user and I still have plenty of battery left before I go bed. Coming from a regular 6 and I couldn't go back to the smaller variant

I vote the 7 w/battery case.

7 with battery case is more adecuate with one hand use.... but plus is a little more faster and with better camara.... of course, the 7 with smart battery is really good for recharging it on the way, which i love this way to do the things.

Depends on if he wants such a massive phone. I have a 6s plus and it's just not a convenient size phone. The 7 is far more portable and I'm excited to downsize cause its a hassle to take it out running and to the gym.
