Apple iPhone 7 Review

Rating - 5 / 5

All in all it pretty much the same as the 6s with tweaks to main specs bringing a more battery power, an enhanced camera and at a small resistance to water.

Release in the UK was September 2016

Covering the specs and main features.


This is 7..

iPhone 7 Design

Both the 7 Plus and the 7 sport the same design of course the plus with a few added extras with a bigger screen of course making it taller.

Taking a quick glance you would thing it was an iPhone 6s, but the colours seem to stand out more with also the introduction of the jet black to add to the gold, silver and also the new pink officially called rose gold.

It was the jet black that seemed hard to source as back orders were proving hard to get hold of and with some networks like Three changing to several different delivery dates to try to supply demand.

If you take a look at the specs comparison you will see though miner improvements have taken place, something we may not catch by eye. Compared to the 6s the 7 is 5 g lighter oooo you may say, yet with the main competitors their flaship Galaxy S7 is 8mm thicker and also weighs 14g more, but you do have to bear in mind the S7 does have a 0.4 inch larger screen.

The design is something you do associate with Apple yet seems to be getting old already, yet in their own way seem to make it new. The new Galaxy S8 deals will be available around AMrhc / April of 2017 bringing competiton before a new ihpnne will be available, will Samsung be the ones to introduce a new grround breaking look and feel of the traditional smartphone.

iPhone 7 Camera

Probably the biggest improvement to come from the 6s to 7 is the camera, enhanced stabilisation and a new lends allows more light for those dark area photos, to improve the quality.

For a while now the photos profuced from The iPhone has been one of the best along with the Galaxy S7, with Huawei making big jumps in the UK with this years flagship the P9 producing great photos too for a much lower budget range.

The now common selfie comes from the front camera and the ability of these have moved with those times bringing high quality and rich selfies enabling you to catch those fun moments with much more detail, so sharing can be fun too.

iPhone 7 Processor

It's all about speed and The iPhone series has always been about bringing the best on the outside and inside too.

The new A10 processor is improved with the latest technology helping to increase speed and control power efficiencies, to ensure your battey lasts longer.

Around Twice as fast as the A8 and A7 used in the iPhone 5s, yet still around 40 percent faster than the A9 previously used.

Couple this with the new IOS which is cleaner, bringing a fresh look and feel yet helps with a lag free browsing.

iPhone 7 Operating System

The battle of IOS and Android goes on to which is the best, the latest in both is hard to seperate yet probably down to personal choice, yet of course you have to have an Apple product to get IOS, yet Android you can of course be the prode owner of a different manufacturer if that floats your boat.

Not forgetting if it is just IOS 10 (the latest version) that you are after then many of the older iPhone models can download the new version with the likes of iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPod touch 6th gen, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad 4th generation and the subsequent iPad Air, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro model able to get it.

Gaining the latest experience on an older smartphone is great but you never really feel the true experience without the latest in tech and that could include the iPhone 7.

Overview

Yes it does look familiar but still holds power on the top smartphone, with new colours it allows you to express more and personalise and still be a proud iPhone owner.

Every year it is the same, we get a new model with the slightest of improvements from the previous and only you as the user can decide on if those are enough to upgrade from your old phone, compared to cost, or if you are a needy latestest tech kinfd of person, it's a must have.

The battle next year will continue with Samsung with the expected launch of the Galaxy S8 will see competiton pre release of the next iPhone.

Price wise it's at the top end so if you have bad credit it's not something you probably would not get accepted for, see the pay monthly prices below.



View all iPhone 7 specifications

Top features at a glance

  • Screen

    3 possible versions for the iPhone 7 with Plus and Pro are doing the rounds so expect more variety to give Apple customers, even more, choice
  • Camera

    With several top smartphone manufacturers like LG and Huawei including dual rear cameras to bring more features, we would expect Apple to move in this direction with innovated ideas rolled into IOS to support this.
  • Operating system

    IOS10, maybe it's time for more features with up to date messages and Siri app taking an overall with 3D touch integration becoming the latest of the improvements.
  • Dimensions

    More battery power could mean a slightly bigger depth and with bigger screens anticipated comes a bigger body.
  • Battery

    Standby on smartphone batteries all round we all need to improve with manufacturers concentrating on apps to allow further extension of battery times, a bump up on mah for the iPhone 7 or it's Plus model at least would not go a miss either.
  • Memory

    Do we get enough now with the 16GB? Other models with high capacity would come with a cost, obviously the alternative like many other competing smartphones is to have a micro SD slot will it be a first for Apple?
  • Processor

    Generally new models equal a more powerful processor to stay in line with the latest technologies but also generally these are required with the new features being packed into the new smartphones.

iPhone 7 Rumours

We all know Apple very well and their products so far have not disappointed their audience. With so many iPhones coming out a very impressive speed what is the iPhone 7 going to offer us?

With rumours flying high what is all the fuss about and is it going to meet expectations? We are still waiting for a date for the latest iPhone handset to be released.

iPhone 7 Design

From what we can tell Apple are sticking with a similar design to the iPhone 6. Its sleek, curved edge and Ion strengthened glass makes it very appealing. iPhone 7 is also set to have a 3D Touch display and home button, a 4.7inch screen with a great resolution. Once again to rumours Apple isoffering an impressive selection of colours for the iPhone 7 handset. This will make it even more appealing to the audience.

Navigation

Like many of the smartphones, Apple has produced this one is set to be no different and uses the same type of navigation system. Again offering fingerprint, password access and swipe screen once into the phone. The fingerprint feature is definitely an approved feature from the targeted audience. We have all found this type of navigation system very impressive and it is a great attribute to the handsets.

Memory

The iPhone 7 is set to have the amazing memory capabilities, once again similar to all other handsets that Apple have given us. The iPhone 7 is rumoured to be offered in three sizes: 16,64,128GB all with 2GB RAM. No SD Card slot is offered on the handset however, Apple is known for this. With no SD Card Slot being offered will the memory suffice? In our personal opinion with the amount of memory offered I think this is more than enough memory to support the media, data, files you will need to have on the handset.

Camera

It has been rumoured that Apple has offered us the same camera facilities as on the iPhone 6S. The main camera offers 12MP,29mm, phase detection Auto Focus, simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording just to name a few of the features. The second camera offers 5MP, 31mm, face detection, HDR and panorama, once again this is no different to the iPhone 6s. Either way, the camera is still of excellent quality.

Mobile Platform System - New IOS 10

It is well known that Apple has their own software systems for all of their products and iPhone 7 is set to be no different.

This is where the iPhone 7 differs from The iPhone 6s, the software that is supposed to be used for iPhone 7 is iOS 10 with the chipset using Apple A10. So do we think this will improve the platform system dramatically?

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will 1GB of Data get me?

Do you need to know Is 1GB enough on the iPhone?, everyone uses their smartphones differently, but getting those extra charges at the end of the month can be avoided.

What will the sound system be like?

As we know Apple have always given us amazing features on their handsets, however, it is rumoured that the iPhone 7 will differ slightly regarding the sound system. Alert sounds will stay the same as iPhone 6S so vibration option and propriety ringtones. The loudspeaker will still be built in, however; unlike the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 7 is rumoured to have removed the 3.5mm Jack.

We are all wondering if this will affect the sound, we hope not but only time will tell.

Does the iPhone 7 have a weight increase?

Due to the handset not being released yet and no date of confirmation for it to be released it is hard to say what the weight will be.

I'm sure this is something that will be confirmed as soon as possible. However, given all other Apple handset, the weight never various that much. All we can do is wait for Apple to finally announce it.
