I'm thinking about upgrading from my 5s but I'm hesitant about making the jump since 6 and 7 are physically bigger. I do want the larger storage capacity and camera tech and I want to stick with Apple. Anyone make the jump and found it didn't fit into places as easily as the 5 did?

I've had a few of them come through my hands over the past couple of months. They seem like a nice comfortable phone to use but they're slippery....like a wet trout kinda slippery!

I just pulled my 5 out of the case to check model numbers and it feels the same way, don't think it'll change no matter what version you have. I really like the folding flip book type cases, adds some size but grip and storage as well.

I got a 6 Plus because it was available free and my previous one was cracked. I'm used to it now, but it's pretty damn big. Carrying it in your front pocket can sometimes be a pain in the...front part of the leg?

The 6 was still a manageable size when I had it and I've been thinking about repairing the screen and going back to it.

I feel you. I was hesitant, and still am, so I went from a 5 to a 5s only because the battery wasn't holding a charge as well as it once did and the chance to upgrade for cheap presented itself. I may just stick with it until the battery craps out again.

What about the SE? Same internals as the 6S, but small.

I have a 6s. It's a little bigger than the Nokia 710 that I had before but not finding it to be a problem. Sticks out of my shirt pocket a bit more than I'd like. I looked at the 7 but it was way too big. Also looked at the 5 and thought it was a bit small.

Are you trying to say bigger pockets are now in style?
I don't know much about style but these days we try to eliminate the string between the cans. It isn't just for ourselves but for the greater good,.. ,humanities greater good.

I use a 7 pretty much non-stop. It's a great smartphone. Only real issue is the idiotic Apple elimination of the normal headphone jack -- as fully expected, that was a moronic move and is annoying almost daily for me for the last year.

I have the 7+. It's big but not too large. Fits in my front pocket. Barely. The way it feels in your hand comes down to the case. The 8 is about to be announced so you can get some smoking deals on 7 series cases. The SE is a great phone. Same guts as the 6s in a 5 series case.

Go to Amazon and get a nice set of Bluetooth headphones. The more you spend the better they sound. I got a decent set for $40. HiFi no, great for walking or riding your bike to work, yup. Runner? Get an iWatch and BT phones and you have tunes, and fitness logging without carrying a bulky phone. When you get home the watch automatically updates your health app when you're inside BT range.

I need my headphones to work on multiple machines without any configuration delays (as in 4-5 different devices with 10 second or less warning to use any of them at any time on demand) including MacBook Pros. I doubt the BT setup is going to allow me that level of speed and simplicity. Plus more charging, blah, blah, blah ... I am a tech guy, you have no idea (eg when I travel, I can count at least 5 CPUs (and often 7-8 because of my work domain) with or attached to me), but enough is enough.
