    My iPhone 5se is in need of replacement and I'm drawn to the dual camera of the iPhone 7 plus (no android, don't even waste our time).

    But dang they are big. Not sure I'd fit into my pockets and a belt clip seems so,.. pocket protector like.

    So anyone using a big (5.5 screen size) and is it manageable? How do you tote yours?

    Thanks!

    Yes, I have the I-phone 7 Plus. I put it in the back pocket of my jeans or pants. In my car I slide it in the map pocket of the door. At work I have a generic stand I put it on. No big deal and the older I get the more I appreciate the larger screen.

    My Nexus is 5.5 (AFAIK) and it is too small for me. My next phone will be a phablet - not as big as the fat bastard's above but bigger than 6".

    I use my phone to watch u-tube at work and as a Nav in the car - a bigger screen is wanted.

    6 Plus with a protective case. Fits in the pocket of every pair of pants/shorts I own. Size is a non-issue in that regard. Seemed big at first I guess.

    Could never go back.

    Love my LG V20. Best phone I've ever owned (that includes apple). It's comparable in size to the Nexus 6, 6P, and Pixel. The camera is better than the iPhone 7. I'm a Google guy. I absolutely love how integrated everything is. And restoring or setting up a phone is as easy as entering your gmail account.

    I like big phones
    And I can't not lie

    I got 4G
    And wi-fi

    My data plan has no end
    And when I call and text my friends

    They never get disconnected
    And it's virus protected...

    and so on and so forth

    Since you went there,..

    And the iPhone 8 plus is better than your LG V20, in reviews your phone is one point out of 10 better than a 7. The reviews put all these phones within a few points of each other. You choose what you like.

    here's an android fanboy's review. of the two, yours and a 7plus. he tries to make the point his LGs camera is better, but that's his POV, both are very close, I prefer the 7plus's photos in his example.

    I upgraded my 4S to a 6S as I was afraid the Plus was too big. My wife got a Plus. I became jealous of her real estate. Got myself a 6S Plus. Not too big at all, in my pocket or jacket. And after using a Plus for a while I look at the smaller ones and wonder how the heck I ever used such a small phone screen.

    I have a 7 plus. Its a typical iphone. I have had it right at a year and I have constant screen freezes. My wife got about 3 weeks out of her first 6 plus before it quit charging. Before this one I had a 5 and 2 5’s in a one year period. If you can get 2 years out if a phone your doing good and choosing to pay what they want for iphones is assanine in my opinion. I will be going Android my next phone.

    I've been using iPhones since they came out. Always a late adaptor, I'm usually one or two versions behind and keep my phones for three years or better. I use my iPhone 4 as a iPod, it still holds a charge.

    Tiny Iphone 4 here. I fear the day I'll have to replace it.

    The image didn't render correctly at first, and just showed the link... Now I'm wondering if I should have kept it that way. I imagine it would have generated more clicks! ;)

    Hopefully I will have a good comparison soon. I chose an Android for my work phone over the iphone.

    I've had an iPhone 6+ for a few years now. It's big, but as I spend more time using the internet on my phone, not to mention occasional recording using the Garageband app, as well as watching movies, I really like the big screen and probably would not go back to a "regular" size phone. And it does fit in my pocket, even with a fairly large protective case.

    7 Plus...it's my first big one, and size is not an issue. (that's NOT what SHE said)

    If you saw my iPhone 5 in my hand you'd laugh. But - you'd only see it if I opened my hand.

    I do voice text only. :oops:

    A Plus model would be fantastic but that's neither a "fun" or "totally necessary" purchase so - ain't getting one...
