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?

The iPhone 7 is a fantastic phone, but we recommend the 7 Plus.

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 (32GB, Black)

 

The iPhone 7, as you may have heard (you've certainly heard), has no headphone jack and it looks almost identical to the 2014 iPhone 6 and 2015 iPhone 6S . But there are still compelling reasons to consider an iPhone 7, even if you own last year's model.

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

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.

Apple iPhone 7 review:

 

Curved wraparound screen? Nope. Wireless charging? Not yet. Are you bothered that the new iPhone looks the same as last year's iPhone? If you are, I understand the feeling. The iPhone 7 doesn't feel like the "whole new thing." Does that bother you?...

Apple iPhone 7

 

Big news out of Cupertino today as Apple launched the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones... the fastest, most powerful, longest lasting phones Apple has ever made, not to mention some thrilling updates on the camera front.

Apple iPhone 7 Review

 

Once again, Apple's coming through with a pair of models, this year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. As a number-upgrade year (rather than one that brings us some new -s phones), we'd sure expect some major changes. With its dual rear cameras, the iPhone...

Incredible battery life ; Beautiful design skilfully hides antenna lines ; Bright, bold, colorful display ; Stereo sound is a welcome addition ; Lightning EarPods sound as good as ever ; Fantastic showcase for iOS 10's new features ; A10 Fusion...

Loyal headphone jack, you will be missed ; Stereo sound balance needs EQ work ; Lack of clicky home button will take (some) getting used to ; Can't charge while using wired headphones ; Jet black finish limited to more expensive storage options

Apple's honed its smartphone-making game to the point where it's easy to see the launch of a new year's model and quickly get cynical about how everything's just business as usual, or how the company's afraid to take big risks with its phones.

Review: Apple iPhone 7

 

Apple's annual iPhone upgrade manages to include some features — water resistance, better cameras, improved battery life — that are worth considering even if you're coming from a newer iPhone. Together with iOS 10, the iPhone 7 is no doubt a powerful...

The iPhone 7 is a very good phone, but it's not a perfect phone and it's certainly not the best phone for many people.

Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus review: Big upgrades, but where's the next big thing?

 

Nearly everything on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is an upgrade: build, display, speakers, storage, processor, battery life, cameras. But are any of these things the next big thing? Here's what we think.

If you can get over the re-used design (the new Jet Black and Black colors really help with that) and the whole no headphone port thing, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are easily contenders for the best smartphones on the market. Apple has upgraded nearly...
