After owning the iPhone 6s from its release date back in late September of 2015 and using it as a daily driver for a full year, was the upgrade to the iPhone 7 worth the money spent? Should I have waited for the iPhone 8 or 7s and upgrade then? Lets do some research to find out.
Should you upgrade your older iPhone to a newer one?
If you ask me Apple has definitely lost some of its magic touch it has had in the past. While writing this review I was trying to figure out whether it was worth to upgrade from an iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s, let alone upgrade to the all new iPhone 7.
iPhone 6 , when it came out and up to this day is a really beautiful phone ( except the antena lines in the back, but you get used to them after a while ), beautiful 4.7inch display, excellent camera, all new stunning design, it was definitely a worthy upgrade if you were coming from an iPhone 5s and if you were looking of getting a better and bigger iPhone.
However in my own personal opinion, upgrading from regular iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s wasnt worth the money. I am a tech savy guy and I love having all new gadgets and features and gimmicks,so I always upgrade my phone regardless of the fact if it has 0 new features or 1208310 new features, thats just the way I am, but I will try and be objective in this situations and take a look at things from another perspective.
Upon its release, iPhone 7 offered several new color options such as the Jet Black or the Black, and gone was the space gray color we all have grown accustomed to. Along with new colors, new home button,faster internals, and better camera, iPhone 7 hasn’t had anything more to offer for the iPhone 6 or 6s users.
When the iPhone 7 went on sale, I bought it on the first day, hoping to be blasted away, and initially, I was, until the hype started fading out and I asked myself why did I even upgrade.
Don’t get me wrong, iPhone 7 is a truly remarkable phone, very beautiful and sleek, extremely fast and efficient, iOS 10 was excellent too, however I truly believe its not worth it to upgrade to the iPhone 7 if you have an iPhone 6 or 6s because you’ll spend a lot of money for basically the same phone. However if you love new tech like I do, and have some money to spare. I say, go for it. Get yourself a new iPhone 7 and enjoy it, as you most certainly will.
To conclude, if you’re comming from an iPhone 5s or any older iPhone and want a brand new phone that you’ll be able to use for years without any issues, go ahead, iPhone 7 is an excellent choice. However if you’re currently using an iPhone 6 or 6s or any android equivalent, I wouldnt recommend the upgrade because its simply not worth it.
Instead, have some patience, the iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 will come in less than a year, and from the rumours we have heard, its definitely gonna be worth upgrading to, regardless of which phone you will own at the moment. Its the original iPhone’ 10th anniversary, so we are sure Apple is planning on something special to unveil in about a year from now, sometime in September 2017.
If after all you decide to get the iPhone 7 , I definitely suggest you get it from Amazon, its safe and shipping is extremely fast. You can get it HERE.
