I made the jump to the 7 plus (from a 6).... mixed feelings but overall think it's worth it - some thoughts:
1. One-Hand Useability - think I have average sized hands for a 6' tall guy - the test for me is when I'm walking around running errands or taking out the dog - I can't really type with one hand, but can navigate through/open apps and read stuff, or control podcast/music settings - verdict: if i were in a walking city like NY, I don't think the 7 plus is portable enough for daily use. In LA though where I have to drive a lot, it's not ideal but fine for my daily - i also suspect i'll get used to this and not think twice soon enough....
2. Increased Real Estate - simply put, it's awesome and can't believe how much more enjoyment I get from the device due to this - you could read books on it for sure
3. Battery Life - I can get through one day with average use - end of the day I'm at ~10% batt life or so - I wouldn't say this is fantastic - if I had a heavy use day doubt I'd make it through the day
4. Camera - I've read reviews saying it's not all that much better than the 6 plus - coming from a 6 though, the improvement is pretty noticeable - psyched for the bokeh software to go public
I also don't take many pictures so the dual cameras, while nice, aren't as big of a sticking point for me.
I know I'll miss the battery life and higher resolution, but that's about it.
Now I'm flip-flopping on just keeping my 6S. I think I may end up doing that. There's nothing on the 7 that is a must-have for me, esp coming from a 6S. Only issue on the 6S I have is the atrocious battery life.
In other news, here are some awesome BT buds that are very high quality for the price:
I just got them delivered and I'm very impressed at the sound quality.. like blown away. I couldn't recommend these more.
That and the home button, though I think they could make a fourth option that vibrates even harder. I've been on 3 now and it feels like it's weaker and weaker the more I use the phone. There needs to be a very hard vibration option.
