I am holding out for the next model.  Hopefully it will support HPUE.  I did spend the gift card from the raffle last month for a new iPad Pro for my wife.  She dropped her last iPad and shattered the screen but it was having other issues before then.  I also invested in a new Lifeproof Nuud case for it.  Let us hope it survives.

The only reason I did upgrade is because I wanted out of my Lease. HPUE won't affect me too much because I have usable B26 at home when I'm not using Wifi. When B41 finally launches I'll be a happy camper though.

I understand.  I hope this weekend my wife and I can go to the Sprint store in town and see if we can reduce our current spend for the current services from Sprint.  I believe we can save approximately 80 to 100 dollars a month.  Will just have to ask and see.

Hopefully you will be able to save. I'm dropping back to Framily with 3GB data so my bill doesn't go up much for upgrading.

I've been thinking of switching from my Nexus 6 to the iPhone 7 plus. I'll probably wait and see if the 7s plus has AMOLED display this year.

Why wait just for that?  LCD on 7/7+ is pretty much top notch (accuracy, brightness, wide color gamut), easily on par with SAMSUNG AMOLED.  Remember, not all AMOLED (and LCDs) are created equal...even when come from same manufacturer.

If you are in the BETA program, then you will notice pretty damn good Portrait mode!  Compared to normal (non-beta) iOS software, the Portrait mode in latest beta software is significantly better!  :tu:

If so, and we're only 6 mos away from iPhone 8/Edition, then i would wait...no need to jump now.

I use the app from the apple store called camera + it allows me to use each camera individualy ...and the secondary lense is. Definitely telephoto the zoom is pretty good:)

I had this app too but then i found that Apple camera app is pretty good at determining when to use and not to use telephoto lens.  When it would not use it even when zooming, it is because using the actual telephoto lens in that situation looks like crap.  

 

I do like the Portrait mode...i have gotten pretty darn good photos out of it!

Not sure...but i have seen significant improvement in Portrait mode...the border is much cleaner now vs. before when it was first released.

Hopefully HPUE will be a part of the next model.  Apple has known about HPUE since December.  We will just have to wait and see.

It would have look much better if the front was black.

Yeah, I don't get why Apple can't make the fronts of the iPhones the same color as the backs.

 

Or is that just their "style".  To have the front either white or black.

If they make front white...then the metallic ring around the TouchID should be red...that would be cool!
