all they needed to do to convince me was a little change in the design to show it's "NEW". The plus could of been the same size screen with a smaller overall size. All they really did was paint it black.
Sound quality over wireless or through the lightning port is false. It makes no difference, as the sound is converted back to analog through the headphones.
Yes and No.
On one hand is a good (but not great) update.
Quad flash, Stereo Speakers, Dual Cameras (one with wide aperture). Yes, we saw those things earlier but in iPhone 7 they are together, not separated.
On other hand , as long as we saw them before, it can't be counted as innovation. It's not new and it's already adopted by other OEM's.
And they get rid of 3.5 jack.
No matter how old this standard is , it's what works now and will work for years from now.
I like wirelless , but when it comes to sound quality it sucks.
Even DAC's in phone are inferior, how could a tiny chip in lighting cable or airpod offer a quality I want. Also, consider Apple's policy expect another patent war. (dislike).
So The options are that.
Buy iPhone 7 and iPod for music.
or buy Android Phone.
Sadly , WP is dead.
It is the the best iPhone ever but only when matched against over iPhone. But the innovation of this iPhone is just copy from other phones.
Everything about this iPhone is great, except the fact that they got rid of the headphone jack. As an avid music listener who uses 3rd party headphones, which I've spent quite a lot on, how the heck do you expect me to carry an extra adapter around all the time? Also what about if I need to charge? Before anyone slams me about bashing the iPhone 7/7+, I will admit everything else is very good. I'll also state that I am aware that Motorola did the same thing on the Z/Z Force and I also think they're equally stupid for eschewing the headphone jack. It's plain stupid to do so. I mainly put this about the iPhone because iDevices tend to have fairly good sound quality out of the jack without using an amp.

Only android users swipe endlessly on the launcher. Any other things would bring bad experience and endless lag.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Why dont android just adopt the lightning charger?Lightning is Apple's proprietary port, and its not as good as type c iirc. Nor is it as universal. Even Apple macs have type c ports.

Why would you buy a fast processor but the speed is only used on swiping the menu.. The absence of 3.5mm jack is unacceptable.. Now you have to depend on shitty lightning to 3.5mm adapter DAC to listen to your music on your supposedly premium device
Not enough of an improvement on my 6S to justify an upgrade. I'll wait for iPhone 8.
The way poll is writen invokes voters to trash iphone here... "Are they what you were hoping for" comon gsmarena how old are you?
Why not just usual hot or not poll?
It's not the best over! But it's not that bad! You do lose audio quality however
I have a youtube channel. I will be using the 7 plus 256 GB for content generation.
There are many great apps for it in the app store and the fast processor and storage of the note makes it easy to transfer video to my main work station for Editting. It will also hold my social media accounts. All in one place. Thank you Apple for creating this awesome device.
AnonD-249626, 12 Sep 2016Dont try to confuse others . LG v20 is great . iphone 7 is shit . Totally same casing as iphon... moreI didn't say that the V20 was not a a good phone, I said that I see how people bash the v20 design and non revolutionary specs, same as with the note 7, in fact both phablets have almost the same specs, and are equally amazing phones, they only differ in a few extras like water resistance, s-pen and better amoled display vs removable battery and better audio capabilities. it's a shame that the Note reputation was hurt due to defective batteries. but overall they are better improvements over their respective predecessors compared to the iPhone 6.5 S
