The important thing is efficiency of the OS in the long term and how long the phone lasts in a day. In the current phone market, having lots of RAM and 8-Core CPU's isn't going to help when the OS isn't well optimised etc and battery is sub-par.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016Really.. apple is a thief and will always stay thief.. fooling people 3 gb ram really you can... more3gb of RAM on iOs versus android are not the same.. iOS is a much smoother operating system so 3gb is more than enough.. my friends always have issues with their android phones either slowing down or crashing.. Apple is superior
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2016Specs mean nothing when iPhones with 2 megs of ram defeats android flag ships with 4gb of ram flagship means nothing if youve already used both of the mobile phone, not just the application but the wholesome of the mobile including the benchmarking of both mobile phone, there are some application which is too laggy for android then working smoothly to IOS including the IOS old version but there are some of the application which is working properly to android but not with IOS, well this is just about the compatibility of those device to its users, thing is a lot of HD games not working properly or even it is not totally working with iphone 7 / 7 plus compare to android which is more dealing with high specs(wholesome), again this is not just about the specific use for its users coz it really depends upon your compatiblity of its users coz both OS are good.

What?, 15 Sep 2016So, people are willing to pay $600+ for a phone with stats equivalent to that of a $300 Androi... morePersonally I'm not a fan of iPhones either but I gotta point out a few issues with your comment.
Firstly this phone is a powerhouse. Its AnTuTu score is 178,397 which makes it one of the most powerful smartphones in the world. Saying it's the equivalent of a "$300 android phone" is just silly.
Also more RAM does not necessarily equal better performance. iOS is a very efficient OS that isn't likely to need any more than 3gb RAM. Adding more would just make the phone more expensive for little to no gain. What would be the point?
Other than the above I actually agree with the rest of your points on the lack of headphone jack, larger battery, expandable storage and OLED.

The reason you feel no lag, is because you never tried iPhone. Hahaha.
So, people are willing to pay $600+ for a phone with stats equivalent to that of a $300 Android phone?
First off, no headphone jack. This was a horrible decision that was only made to sell Airpods (cheaply-made wireless headphones with a ridiculous price tag also; that people will still undoubtedly still buy over aftermarket products). There are thinner phone that include a headphone jack; why couldn't this?
Then there's the screen. The iPhone 7 has a 720p LCD screen. The resolution is pathetic, but there's no reason for it not be AMOLED at this point. Lower battery comsumption, better contrast, true black, etc. My Nexus 6P has a 1440p AMOLED and cost less than $500, there's no excuse for this phone to not have a nicer panel.
3 GB of RAM is acceptable for my phone; as it wasn't over $600; but this phone should have 2x that amount. I don't care how well the software manages it, the lack of RAM is really, really sad.
And yet again, no expandable storage. The only reason they don't include it is to force people to buy higher-capacity models, which is ridiculous. My phone came with 32 GB as the lowest option, why can't Apple do that?
NFC is still only used for Apple Pay. Why not use it for cool features, like transferring files by touch?
And then there's the battery. There's no excuse for it not to be larger. Seriously, guys? This piece of hardware is truly pathetic for what you pay for it. Also, there's no wireless charging, so you have to buy the double adapter to listen to music and charge your phone. Truly genius extortion on Apple's part.
Dual cameras is an interesting feature, and that's about the best thing that is on this phone.
This is the biggest ripoff of the decade.
Wow a new phone just like the 6,5,4 and gsm iPhones with lots of small icons everywhere thankyou. i love squinting my eyes looking at icons upon icons. Thank you for not changing i would hate my brain needing to adjust and also in a never before seen colour dark black can black get any darker.#innovation
Can't wait to buy it and be like my other homies as we all wear the same clothes, drive the same cars, wear the same undies and go back to Samesville. Be an individual be you buy apple just like everyone else #makessense
Thank you apple for telling me what to buy and making me feel unique.
Iphone 7 plus battery capacity 2675 mah, taptic engine taking up the room from the removal of the headphone jack, really disappointed.
