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...

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

 

Apple's iPhone 7 is better than last year's model in almost every way, but it isn't quite as good as its bigger sibling, the iPhone 7 Plus.

Water-resistant design. Faster processor, brighter screen, and better cameras than last year's model.

The absence of a 3.5mm headphone jack is a big hassle, at least for a few months. Not all models are compatible with all carriers. Lacks dual cameras.

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 is still divisive?

Apple iPhone 7 review: Time-saver edition

 

Apple is proud of the bold move of removing the audio jack. But in pretty much every other aspect they've seemingly taken the conservative route. On the outside, the new iPhone looks basically the same as the iPhone 6/6s. >Well, it's not as easy as...

Built to the usual sky-high standards ; Class-leading IPS LCD in terms of brightness and color calibration. Less-than-stellar pixel density ; The 12MP camera produces solid photos, but its only tangible improvement over last year's camera ;...

On the seventh day the designers rested. In came the engineers. And the master of controversy struck again. Apple is proud of the bold move of removing the audio jack. But in pretty much every other aspect they've seemingly taken the conservative...

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Curved wraparound screen? Nope. Wireless charging? Not yet. Are you bothered that the 2016 iPhone looks the same as its predecessor? If you are, I understand the feeling. The iPhone 7 ( $732.96 at Amazon.com ) doesn't feel like the "whole new thing."...

Improved front and rear cameras -- now with optical image stabilization -- deliver much improved photos, especially in low light. Water resistant. A faster processor, plus slightly better battery life. More onboard storage than last year's models for...

No headphone jack (but there's a dongle and compatible wired headphones in the box). Click-free home button takes getting used to. Only the larger 7 Plus has the cool dual camera. Shiny jet-black version scratches easily.

The iPhone 7's notable camera, battery and water resistance improvements are worthwhile upgrades to a familiar phone design. But ask yourself if you really need an upgrade... and if the Plus might be a better choice.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Review: Iterating on a Flagship

 

The iPhone 6 was a runaway success by any measure. The A8 SoC may have been built on a temperamental 20nm process – something that dogged all other phone vendors – but for Apple it didn't matter. The iPhone 6 was the first iPhone generation with a...

Overall, I think that if there’s any phone that is worth 650-750 USD at its base, it’s the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. If you’re upgrading from the iPhone 6s Plus you probably won’t find a ton of differences, but it’s still a significant step up in display,...

iPhone 7 Review

 

It's ironic, a new iPhone is usually the specter hanging over rival smartphones, but it's the promise of their unannounced successor that looms above the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus . Mauled even before launch by vocal criticism of Apple's decision to...

Excellent camera performance ; Finally water-resistant ; iOS 10 and the A10 Fusion are fast and smooth ; Display is beautiful

RIP headphone jack ; Jet Black is a scratch-magnet ; Your old cases probably won't fit

While the overall shape and physical design of the iPhone 7 is similar to the iPhone 6S that preceded it, the new display has wider color gamut, including DCI-P3 as well as traditional sRGB, which improves the rendering of photos and videos. The...
