    The lack of actual home button (it's a touch thing but you have to press it hard to get it to react) is weird.

    iOS 10 on a 6s is weird too. Pressing the home button does not fully unlock. It feels to me that they over corrected for the people complaining that the pushed the home button to wake their phone and the Touch ID kicked in unlocking it and making them miss their notifications..

    I have not figured it out yet, either.

    Plus iOS 10 has slowed my 6 down to an unusable level. I'm going to reformat it from scratch when I get a moment,

    @Minion-Queen so you find a big reason to upgrade from a 6?

    Sure I've gone through three screens, but I can't justify 700 bucks and haven't found a killer feature.

    She is on the Apple subscription plan thing.

  • Updated to 10 yesterday,.. it's different to say the list.

    You can set the home button back to the 'previous' operation. Still figuring out some of the new stuff.

    @JaredBusch that's not really relevant to my question, but I read the thread and saw that she doing that.

    Actually it is. I spend $42 a month and can upgrade every year. I have a 6 for GS, a 6+ for personal the 6+ is what I have upgraded. The camera on the 6+ plus was great but the sound quality on calls wasn't (very choppy lost service often).

    I wanted the nicer camera but I would have upgraded due to my apple subscription plan even if there was no change.

    Sure it is relevant. She is on the subscription plan, and the entire point of that is to always upgrade. Compelling features have nothing to do with it.

  • Let me re-ask the question @aaron posed...

    @Minion-Queen since you have seen both the 6 and the 7, and I am thinking of upgrading to the 7, do you find any big reason for me to upgrade? I don't see a killer feature on the 7, but since I haven't seen it, maybe you have!

    It had everything to do with my question.

    You asked if she found a big reason. The answer is there is no reason to find for her because of said plan.

    Completely different question, and one I am interested in hearing the answer to as well.

    @Minion-Queen do you find a big reason to upgrade from a 6?

    Sure I've gone through three screens, but I can't justify 700 bucks and haven't found a killer feature.

    Notice where the "?" mark is. The QUESTION was "did you find a big reason to upgrade?" The word "feature" is nowhere to be seen. The following line is a comment about your personal criteria for justifying an upgrade. That was not in the question portion. Yeah, she had a big reason to upgrade: the plan. Asking about some new feature that would justify an upgrade for you isn't there. You may be meaning to ask it, but you didn't. Plus 10 points to @JaredBusch for basic English skills.



  • Differences so far coming from the 6+ (I honestly only use my 6 for phone calls, nothing else so can't compare from there for you):

    Faster- there is a significant difference here
    Brighter-
    Louder- the double speakers are awesome no need to connect to a Bluetooth speaker for general listening (or use the whole put in a cup thing to hear it)
    Camera- zooming in to take a pic is really good (not grainy at all) I will be giving this a real test out this weekend at gigs and just various pics (way too tired to do it now)
    I like IOS 10.0.1
    new I Message is nice

    Don't I get some points for figured out what (I think) he was asking? 🙂

  • This post is a great example of how ML works sometimes, LOL.



  • SMH

    Yeah, feature was the last word... and not used in the actual question.



  • Well that escalated quickly.



  • Stupid often does.



  • So back to the topic at hand....

    Once I start really getting to test this out I will let you know what I think. So far I am happy with it but it has just been newly setup, so we will see how it goes.



  • I am just hoping that it is better than the 6+. I hated that thing. Call clarity was often choppy, the reception seemed in general to be poorer than any other iPhone I've seen, and a bunch of other things that are just me deciding to not like it, so that it gives more clout to the legit reasons I already had.

    I am in some dilemma with my devices.

    I have a 6. Been happy with it. But ATT is offering a free upgrade to a 7, so I am considering it. I also have a small crack so now sure if they'll take it.

    The wife has a 6 as well that was recently shattered to bits and pieces. She doesn't care to upgrade.

    The 12 year old needs an iPhone. She wants rose gold. Thinking about the 6S.

    So, lot of things to think about! Be curious to hear your thoughts on the 7 in the next few days as I ponder...



  • I think the camera is what @scottalanmiller is most interested in. He takes tons of selfies during our travels, and he's currently on the 5s, so the camera is a huge upgrade.



  • So the front camera (on the screen) hasn't changed at all in a bit... I know @scottalanmiller has the 5s so it might be a little updated from there. But there is no difference between the 6, 6+ and 7+ there.



  • Ok just looked it up on the 5s he has a 5 megapixel one on the 7 series they are a 7megapixel camera. It's the back camera that has changed

    I thought that both changed? The 7+ has three cameras instead of two. Two different lenses on the front. But I thought that the reverse camera was upgraded as well.



  • Nope one lens on the front just like before and the 2 on the back. 7+ column on the left 7 on the right 0_1474390391490_Capture.PNG
