Personal preference.

Personally, I did not like OS 6 on my 9650 but others loved it.

But I really like OS 7 on my 9930.

OS 6 takes up a lot of space. It will likely make your 9700 run much more slowly than OS 5.

IMHO, if your device is working as you want and need it to work, then it might not be broken and might not need to be fixed with an OS upgrade.

In addition, your 9700 was not made to run OS 6, as M-M said above. The processor and memory are both barely adequate.

Read through the 9700 section and see what other 9700 users have to say.
