I love my iPhone 7+
It has been rock solid so far , and learning to use it wasn’t bad at all .
I much prefer it to my old android phones that kept losing earpiece functionality and charge ports .
I even purchased a used regular iPhone 7 just to check out the difference .
The + size is easier to read and has a better camera .
Although it doesn’t fit in your pocket as easily .
I would be fine with the 7 .
If you do get an iPad , which I also have you can air drop photos etc back and forth , and it syncs with your phone very easily .
You can link them up so if you get a text or call the iPad will ding or ring as well.
