iPhone 7 review

iPhone 7 32GB model in Silver

 

Whats in the box

 

iPhone 7

EarPods with Lightning Connector

Lightning to USB cable 

Power Adapter 

 

 

The iPhone 7 may have the same 4.7 inch display as its 2 predecessors but there are some noticeable differences on the outside of the phone. 

 

 

It it has a more rounded smoother finish. The back of the phone still retains all of the usual features but has a new colour scheme. Apple have gone back to doing an all colour backing instead of the border thing they did with the iPhone 6, 6s & SE. 

 

Performance 

 

The iPhone 7 has the A10 processing chip which I admit gives it a more smoother & solid performance speed wise & doesn't overheat like the iPhone 6s did. iOS 10 runs very nicely on this phone & doesn't lag. To be honest with the new chip you would expect the battery life to dwindle but so far I am very impressed with it. It still lasts me a day or more but I am a medium user of all the phones features. A definitely big improvement on the battery life in my opinion. 

 

New Features 

 

Apple say the iPhone 7 is dust, splash & water resistant. Note they say splash. If you immerse it in water attempting to try it out. I give a 110% bet you will break the phone. There is a redesigned camera but I will talk about that in a separate section. The Home Button has been redesigned 

 

Home Button

 

The home Button has been redesigned to make it pressure sensitive using the Haptic feedback system. It makes each press more precise than before.

 

Camera

 

This time the iPhone 7 has a much better & improved camera system with a 12mp rear camera & a 7mp front camera for FaceTime & selfies if you like that sort of thing. It's a much cleaner & sharper camera than has ever been on an iPhone. It now has Optical Image Stabilisation so no more blurry or shaky photos if you are a photographer or someone who likes taking quick snaps. It also has a True Tone Quad LED flash making your photos better in low light & the colours come out much brighter. The iPhone 7 display is 25% brighter than the iPhone 6s.

 

EarPods 

 

For the iPhone 7. Apple removed the 3.5mm headphones jack & now you have a pair of EarPods which connects to the phone via a lightning connector. It makes the sound louder & clearer than before. The only downside of this is that you cannot charge your phone at the same time.

 

I really like the iPhone 7 as it may not look much different but under the hood. It's a whole lot of new.
