Apple iPhone 7 Review

 

Each year at around the same time Apple revises it's iPhones, secrecy ensues prior to their launch. However, with the launch of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus very little was left to imagination. Apple has solved some of the basic problems surrounding...

On the outset, the iPhone 7 appears not to be a major upgrade, the reality is far from it. Apart from all the Jet Black and matte black goodness of the antenna hiding new colour, the iPhone 7 also improves heavily on many other aspects. The phone is...

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Forget the headphone furore, the iPhone 7 is a slick update worth waiting for

No longer as allergic to water as a Mogwai ; A screen that isn’t defeated by bright sunshine ; Camera quality takes another step up

Battery life still needs work ; That Jet Black finish is a total fingerprint magnet ; Where's my headphone port?

The iPhone 7 is polished enough to feel new all over again, headphone port or not

iPhone 7 review

 

Is waterproofing enough of an upgrade?

Good low light camera ; Water resistant ; Double the internal capacity

Lacks clear upgrades ; Same design used for last three phones ; Battery life unimpressive

If you're going to buy a new iPhone, this is the one to get – there's a slightly longer battery life, a better camera, fast innards and protection against water. However, many of the changes are slight, and the iPhone 6S, for the lower price, suddenly...

Apple iPhone 7 review: Refining the design rather than ripping it up and starting again

 

"It is the best iPhone yet", proclaimed Tim Cook on the stage at Apple's Special Event in San Francisco at the beginning of the September last year. The iPhone 7 is not the overhaul that Apple usually presents us with every two years, but there is...

Refined design and new finishes make for best-looking iPhone to date, great camera with image stabilisation, iOS 10 makes for the most in-depth use yet, new Home button works brilliantly

More like an S version of the iPhone 6S than a total overhaul, still no wireless charging, no dual cameras feature here, no true battery improvement, no headphone jack will irk some

The iPhone 7 is not the overhaul that Apple usually presents us with every two years, but there is enough here to keep those upgrading from the iPhone 6 happy.

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...

Updated with our thoughts on the new Product (RED) version

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

 

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 ( £549.00 at Amazon.co.uk ) 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.
