So I have the iPhone 7 Matte Black 256 GB model. I LOVE the phone. I came from the iPhone 6S Plus and got used to that size phone though so I am contemplating going back. A store 1 hour away from me has the 7 Plus Matte Black 256 GB model in stock. Since I got my 7 from a retailer I have to return it and then hope they have the corporate store has the 7 Plus when I get there as they cannot reserve it for me. Do I risk it or not?

Perhaps purchase the new iPhone first then return the other one?
I asked if I could but they said I would have to open a new line on my account. He told me to return my current one first then buy the Plus. He then said it is a risk and asked if I was willing to try it.

If you still have the 6S+ you can use that, not that much of a difference anyway, and go for it. The matt black 7+ will come by sooner or later. Or you can keep the cash and invest it in what will hopefully be a true upgrade from the 6S(+). Really not that risky at all.

I should have kept it but already shipped it back to Verizon since we are switching from AT&T to Verizon. Oh well. I'll keep the 7 and upgrade to the Plus model next year when they celebrate a 10th anniversary.

And the good thing is you get to experience the smaller one for a year first hand. So next year you will know what to go for.

Indeed. I truly do enjoy the regular 7 but I think my issue is adjusting. After having the 6S+ for a year I became used to it and am having trouble adjusting to the smaller phone. Heck who knows I may adjust and end up loving it for than the Plus model. Time will tell.

More power to you! I don't think I could go back to the regular 7.

Saves you money this year and maybe next year also. It's a win win situation :cool:.

It's a year. That's all. You'll get over it. Regular one is more in demand too so it's probably easier to sell.

The 7 Plus Matte Black would be my go to. If you can handle the sheer size, then it would be worth it in my opinion.

It's definitely easier to hold that's for sure.
Absolutely! So much easier to hold. Much more manageable on a day to day basis. I just miss the screen real estate. I could care less about the dual camera and such. I just miss the bigger screen. Lol

The screen is definitely the hardest to give up. But now the camera is a must have for me.

If I took a lot of pictures it would be a must have as well. Luckily my wife is the one who takes the pictures lol oh well.

Lol exactly the opposite here. I love taking pictures and am usually the one who remembers to take them!

I just returned my regular u today and now have to wait for my plus to arrive in 4 weeks... I'm a bit afraid of the size, the more I read... I only had a regular 6s before and right now.
I really hope it will be manageable, as I want this camera and the screen! The regular jb7 seemed oddly small to me in the few days that I had it. Very strange.

I ended up going to my local Verizon. They had just got a Matte Black 128 GB 7+. I ended up doing an exchange and now back to what I am used to!
