In a month and a half of use, I'm still amazed at how fast the 7 plus is. I upgraded from a 6 plus which was admittedly feeling sluggish after a while. I find myself opening random web pages just to see them pop on the screen. I never thought a mobile device would be faster than a laptop, but it seems to be. Usually, the novelty of a spec bump wears off after a few days, but here it is so dramatic I'm still giddy over it even after so long. So far, with the addition of water resistance which is really liberating for travel, I'm very happy with the upgrade.
