iPhone 7 vs iPhone 7 Plus

There are two new iPhones in Apple’s iPhone lineup: the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Both are power-houses, but each has its differences. With that in mind, we’re curious about what iPhone configuration you’re planning to buy.

There are a lot of factors related to the type of iPhone you’re planning on buying, including the size, storage option, and color. So we’ve embedded three separate polls in this post so you can be heard.

It should be interesting to see what the most popular outcome is going to be.




Note: Keep in mind that the Jet Black color option for the iPhone 7 is not available in a 32GB storage option like the other colors are.

Personally, I will probably be going with a 128GB Jet black iPhone 7 Plus. I like the new color a lot, and I’m more of a fan of the camera features on the larger model. Unfortunately, because Apple won’t offer a 32GB option for the Jet Black color, I’m pigeon-holed into buying the higher-tier storage option.

Let us know what you chose and why in the comments below!

    128 jet black 7.

    I don’t need 256 with most of my stuff in the cloud. I’ve had the 6+ for two years and I’m sick of the size — the 7+ camera is tempting, but not enough to spend another 2 years with a huge ass phone.

    • askep3

      What kinds of problems have you had with the size? I’m considering the plus cuz I really want the screen real estate, but I don’t want it if it’s really inconvenient.

      • edwilk55

        Takes a little more thumb reach, but nothing I haven’t loved. I went from 6 to 6S Plus and never looked back.

      • Vy Hoang

        tap the home button twice to bring the screen down

      • diggitydang

        Using the + sizes at night in bed, I’ve dropped the phone on my face a few times!! Hahaha. But thinking of going back (been on the 6s for a year) for the better battery and camera. Good luck!

      • Brandon Kyer

        It’s inconvenient. To me, a phone should just be seamless or an extension of yourself. It doesn’t fit into anything, pulling your phone out for something quick is out of the question, and there really isn’t any more screen real estate.. just more wasted “empty space”. Sure watching videos is better, but other than that, not much to make me stay with the plus.

      • askep3

        I’m thinking about getting an Apple Watch, so getting it in and out quickly may not be as much of a problem

      • nova voter

        not really “problems,” but it’s just a PITA. like mentioned in another reply, it’s not really great in a front pocket, and if you run, it’s HUGE to carry. I wear basketball-type mesh shorts basically everyday, and it is ridiculous as the huge phone swings around on my leg. And it’s not great with jeans or khakis either, when I go to the office.

        I thought I’d like the screen rotation, but I hate it and keep the screen lock on for everything but videos, which will rotate on the 4.7″ screen as well.

        It just didn’t work best for me — for others, it could be different, for sure. I just am tired of always having a huge phone. my kid has the 6, and I love that size.

      I’m with you on this one. Just can get used to + models. Too big in my opinion. Too bad Apple will make us wait on dual cameras on the smaller model till next year (I hope). Same way they did on OIS last year.

      • drouell

        must be because you fellas are in your 20s or 30s, you know these alphabets are for the elderly, right? poor vision and all- so glad they put an amplifier in there too, I can finally hear the music! lol

    • Guy

      I feel the same way

  • All the love for black, sheesh.

    Silver ∞ for me! {No, not because of the white front, but because it matches all my Apple gear + I love aluminum}

    • ericesque

      Silver for me too. But mostly because of the white front. I feel like the black front creates a frame that makes the interface feel cramped. Had a white 5 and black 6 Plus. I’ve regretted not sticking with white.

    • Rowan09

      Black is popular right now. Ask the presidential candidates.

    • Greg Warren

      Same; I’ve had white + silver since it was first released and I don’t see any reason to change. Especially not for the piano black; I don’t want something that’s going to scratch that easily.

    • diggitydang

      I’ve had both, but mostly silver. I’ve always regretted black after a short period of time. Backgrounds (especially colour ones) look more vibrant on a white front. Black looks better when the screen is off ttime (but who cares then?!). White looks better with the screen on because iOS apps tend to use white backgrounds. That’s my two cents.

      • Juschan

        i mostly had black phones because i mostly care about it when my phone is in standby and laying on the table hahaha

      • Well put.

  • Mike M. Powell

    128gb matte 7+ lets go!!!!!!!!!

  • Tommy Gumbs

    Not enough to upgrade. Yes better camera, etc….but really there is no reason too unless my phone breaks. I already have a 6 plus and 6S plus.

  • Fede777

    SE 64 Space Grey today to 7 32 Black

    • Juschan

      stay with the 64:O 32 isnt even my spotify library hahaha

  • Ernie Marin

    My 6 is 64 gb and I have about 10 left, so the 128 will be mainly because it’s the only replacement for the same price. I’ll go for the Jet model but if they run out when I go I’ll get black or silver, but really want the jet black as it reminds me of the old 3G models.

  • Wow, lots going for the matte, would have thought with all the hype people would go Jet Black. If I were going to get it, it would be plus size, matte 128gb.. but since that’s seems to be popular I would put the extra money down for 256gb at preorder to guarantee it on launch day… of course that’s only based on the results posted so far. Could easily change.

  • hulksince93

    128GB Jet Black iPhone 7.

    But one thing, with the music jack gone, does that mean we can’t listen to music and charge the iPhone simultaneously?

    • Albert

      You can…only with BT headphones πŸ™‚

      • hulksince93


  • Matt M

    I have a question. Would It be better to preorder the iPhone 7 plus on apples website or through my carriers website i.e verizon? Like will Apple ship it sooner and it’ll get to me on launch day or will it not matter cause Apple and verizon will get it to me on launch day? I plan on preordering it as soon as you can.

    Thanks in advance

    • Mike Colacone Saal

      just come to best buy πŸ™‚

  • Jamessmooth

    Tough decision. Jet black is nice but it reminds me of an old iPhone. That matte is looking really fresh.

    • Juschan

      well we had matte for three years now i guess glossy could be the fresher one (again πŸ˜€ )

      • Jamessmooth

        Makes sense to me! πŸ˜€

  • Jerry

    So after everyone was crying about not having a 256 option now nobody wants one? People just find crap to complain about every launch

  • Johnny

    I keep my SE

  • Pam Oakea

      • drouell

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Jet black plus

  • Manoj Mahtani

    Been using iPhone 6 (Space Gray) 128gb and iPhone 6s Plus (Space Gray)128gb. Both times i have noticed my storage nearly finishing with 10gb left or so. Now with 4K recording I might as well get the 256gb storage so I care enjoy the phone carefree for 1 year.

    As for the color, I feel the black color is a darker grey or light black. I am going fot Jet Black. It may remind us of iPhone 3G or iPhone 4 but it is a nice color and really nice to have it back.

    I have never used a case for my iPhones because of installing an invisible shield 3M crystal clear protection. I will be doing that again to maintain the glossy look of the phone.

    I have my leather pouches which I have been using for my iPhone 6s Plus for the new iPhone.

  • Klaudio Godines

    Not getting one.

  • Graig

    Getting the bigger phone for more battery. Was not happy with 6s battery ever. Also getting the plus for the camera system.
