Apple iPhone 7 Plus Smartphone Review

 

The second one features better zooming. The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is showing off with two main cameras and a powerful processor. All of this is sitting inside a water and dust resistant case with two new colors. You also get stereo speakers, but the...

very sophisticated chassis ; protected against water and dust ; comprehensive sensor equipment ; many mobile frequencies ; intuitive software with useful apps ; high WLAN transfer rates ; good GPS accuracy ; very good cameras ; very precise control...

only 12 months warranty ; no 3.5 mm headphone jack ; NFC only for Apple Pay ; pretty expensive ; no microSD-slot ; voice quality not perfect ; noticeable warming ; speakers only average

The 9th generation of the iPhone also leaves a good impression and remains one of the best premium smartphones you can get. Still, you notice that the iPhone 7 Plus is an evolutionary update. The revolution is expected for next year, which will be the...

Apple iPhone 7 Smartphone Review

 

Now, it is also waterproof. The case of the new iPhone is now also protected against water and dust. There are also improvements in respect to the camera as well as the display, combined with a lot of performance. A headphone jack is, however, not...

very sophisticated and light case, protected against water and dust, comprehensive sensor equipment, many mobile frequencies, intuitive software with useful apps, high WLAN transfer rates, good GPS accuracy, very good camera, very precise control...

only 12 months warranty, no 3.5 mm headphone jack, pretty low resolution of the display, NFC only for Apple Pay, pretty expensive, no microSD-slot, voice quality not perfect, noticeable warming, speakers only average

The Apple iPhone 7 will certainly not be remembered as a revolution on the smartphone market. If you believe the rumors, Apple is saving the revolution for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone next year. The manufacturer still offers a very good high-end...

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

 

Absence of headphone jack aside, the 7 Plus is the best iPhone you can buy, with more memory than its smaller counterpart and dual cameras that peer toward Apple's future.

Dual cameras. Copious memory and storage. Water-resistant design. Faster on all performance measures, with better battery life, than last year's iPhones. iOS still leads on high-quality games and creative apps.

Lacks a 3.5mm jack, and there aren't a lot of Lightning-compatible headphones yet. Not all models are compatible with all carriers.

Comparisons and Conclusions There's a simple question this year: Are the iPhone 7's new features worth the headphone jack hassle? Especially right now, when there aren't many Lightning headphones available and Bluetooth devices are still divisive.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus review

 

Phone cameras are getting really damn good.

Dual rear cameras delivers true 2x optical zoom, with a cool bokeh Portrait mode. Battery lasts longer than last year's model, and longer than iPhone 7. Water resistant. Fast. Bigger storage options include 256GB model for serious photographers.

There's no standard headphone jack: you'll have to use Lightning, or the included adapter, or go wireless. Design is showing its age, as competing phones squeeze a 5.5-inch screen into smaller, sexier bodies. And it's really expensive.

The iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras ever -- and it's a great phone, too.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus review

 

Zoom right in on the iPhone 7 Plus: It's the iPhone to buy in 2016.

Although the iPhone 7 Plus isn’t a huge upgrade over the iPhone 6S Plus, Apple took a few radical steps – some good, some bad. The dual-camera tech and its optical zoom are excellent, for example. It’s a bold move for Apple, and although it’s not the...

Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs LG V20

 

In the battle for the best big phone, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus is one device that you cannot overlook.

Excellent audio quality ; Secondary wide-angle camera captures stunning landscapes ; Secondary display is a nice extra ; Excellent main camera ; Easily swappable battery ; Expandable storage

At the end of the day, it’s clear that we’re dealing with two great phones that don’t feature any glaring shortcomings or critical flaws.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review

 

A few years back, Apple – long the smartphone maker content to walk to the beat of its own drum – seemed to finally start reacting to broader market trends and made some sweeping changes to the sizes of its phones. Apple already started experimenting...

Incredibly bright, bold, high-res display ; Optical zoom is a revelation ; Even with the big camera bump, design looks great ; A10 Fusion is a powerhouse

Not all dual-camera features available at launch time ; Plus model still feels a little too big for many uses ; Missing headphone jack will take a little getting used to

With the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple's made the question of “which iPhone do I get?” more complicated than ever before.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review

 

The iPhone 7 Plus was announced at the same time as the iPhone 7, and is a follow-on from the iPhone 6 Plus. It features two 12 megapixel sensor cameras, each featuring a different lens, one of which is wide-angle, and one which is twice the focal...

Apple’s iPhone series continues to improve on the camera front, and the iPhone 7 Plus is no exception. Images in good light are fantastic, and while low light shooting still has some improving to be done, if you’re likely only to be displaying your...
