This is definitely the better iPhone 7 model of the two. Forget your one-handed comfort and smaller pockets.
+ 2X optical zoom
+ 1080p / higher ppi
+ longer battery life
+ extra gig of RAM
The 2X optical zoom is a killer feature. That is worth it alone if say you are recording a concert or event and the stage seems so far away. The regular iPhone 7 which I call iPhone 7 Minus is still stuck with a small battery and a 750p/326ppi is not flagship quality anymore. That's so 2012.
I prefer the V20 and Note7 more because I prefer Android. But the iPhone 7 Plus is definitely the one to get between iPhones. That optical zoom is simply a killer feature for recording and snapping photos in events and exclusive only to the 7 Plus. I don't care about the size anymore if it has a feature like that.
millstone, 22 Sep 2016the jet black phone so beautiful , who know the process of jet black body , how can make it ?some reliable sources said that the iPhone 7 jet black will become scratched on few days used is it true ? I want to buy the iPhone . but now I think
I had an iPhone 3G, a 4S and a 5. I kept the 5 for about a year and a half, the other two less than a year. They were nice phones at the time, when everyone else was behind. While the 3G came to light, all Android phones were horrible. Then the iOS 4 update came and broke it. The Galaxy S line started with the iPhone 4, they were good phones, but with bad plastic build, while Android and TouchWiz had a lot of issues (TouchWiz might be improved now, but we still hate it though.) Since the iPhone 6, Apple has been behind the competition in every aspect. Design, battery life, camera/sound/display quality, as well as other features and so on. Android has came a long way, now being comparable to iOS - performance and stability wise. Of course, an iPhone 7 might be a few miliseconds faster than the best Androids out there (let's say the OnePlus 3), but that's just no justification to double the price AND have half the storage. And that with worse, overused (by more than 2 years) design, IMHO, not to mention the huge bezels (seriously, Apple, isn't a 5.5 inch phone already big enough?) To me, that 32-128-256 storage option is a scam, making you buy the 2nd one. There should be 1-step increase in storage, so the 7s should have been started with 64 gig options. A premium phone in 2016 should have no less than 64GB, look at the OnePlus 3 and Note7 (explosions aside). Also, let's not forget that a premium glossy black piano won't scrath if you touch it. That's how a quality device should act.

tiz, 21 Sep 2016most likely apple seems to never QA stuff before release..It is stated on the Apple website since it came out that the Jet Black can be scratched easily.

as well as saying starting to compete with iphone prices.......... maybe if your mainstream with samsung its a shame you never researched the many international brands and all the different configurations/software experiences... put on the wool
I'm expecting my iPhone 7 plus 128 GB jet black in a few week can't wait so excited and I prefer iPhone over Samsung sorry guys
mono2016..., 21 Sep 2016some people say jet black becomes scratched and dent after few days used. is it true? most likely apple seems to never QA stuff before release..
IPhone 7 plus takes crazy good looking bokeh photos
I started my entry in the smartphone world with iPhone 3 ... witch was a disaster for me(many hard/soft failures). After that I have switched to Android (Samsung S3 and now S5) beliving in the ideea of customatization and free apps.
Last year I have bought my wife an iPhone+ 6s 32gb. After several years of Android I started to get anoyed by it - every time I open one app with x, y, z, and agin again... new version of Android(witch are not releasd for some time untill a new version is in development, many crashes, no support for old phones, low battery life....).
Now I want a phone for calling and some small games when I am bored.
PRO Android - Dropbox, customs ROM, customize of menu, many free app(hacks and cracks), expendable microSD cards, usable as an memory stick if necessary with almost any device, high resolution of phones
CONS Android - little life of Android, many bugs, after one year the price the phone is obsolete, instability of apps, starting to coplete wit iOS in price, difficult to masteer fingerprints
PRO iOS : stability, privacy(not talking about fingerprints), quality of music, iTunes, high value of sale, TouchID
CONS iOS : price, lack of free apps, apple hardware and software, video player format, capcity, low stocks of phones
After this considerations, yesterday I have placed an order for an iPhone 7 plus 256Gb to get rid of Android(Samsung S6)... (in the beginning Android was fun but after a while you want something more mature and stable). It's like in real life you have a gfriend(android) then you want a wife(iOS)...
Nick, 21 Sep 20162013 galaxy s4 has some specs same as iphone 7 plus.Samsumg phones are more advance than iphoneFeel sorry for you tho. Since you can never compare Samsung with Apple just by the numbers that you can see on the specs. On the first place Iphones don't need that. Since the OS of it do a lot far better compared with Samsung. You need to do some researches why Iphones are faster than Samsung
still iphone 6s beating galaxy note 7 in speed as iphone 6s is dual core and galaxy note 7 is octa so how can u will compare the quad core of iphone 7 and 7 plus...... iphone is best of all, and the other thing why samsung by passed the note 6 ?
some people say jet black becomes scratched and dent after few days used. is it true?
