Reviewer already listed below disadvantages which even only 1-2 of them are deal breakers:
No 3.5mm audio jack (ships with a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter)
No microSD slot
No dual-camera of the iPhone 7 Plus
NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
Still no fast or wireless charging, no IR port or FM radio
No user-replaceable battery
Scratch-prone Jet Black model
BUT, one very important feature which Android users are all aware of is missing as well (and this is really a big deal breaker).
-NO FILE BROWSER
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016A "fast" SD card is still nowhere near as fast as the internal storage on the iPhone 7. (Read/... moreThats only recently true. It has not been that way for many prior years however
Iuli, 21 Sep 2016"Micro SD card - I selected the 64GB 6s+ and I no longer require SD card..." Yeah, but at wha... moreA "fast" SD card is still nowhere near as fast as the internal storage on the iPhone 7. (Read/Write in excess of 800/220 MB/s respectively for the 128GB model 860/320 MB/s for the 256GB model)
Sun Sand, 21 Sep 2016This silly company still going with proprietary port instead of "USB C", how lame is that!!It's lame, but it's a great business decision. Apple makes lots off royalties from products that use their Lightning connector.
Grey1213, 26 Sep 2016Sony has the same warranty.Can you read this? I copy it from the official Sony mobile.
"Warranty, repairs and customer service
ItÂ’s important to know that your warranty does not cover damage or defects caused by abuse or improper use of your device, including use in environments where the relevant IP rating limitations are exceeded. Also note that compatible accessories, including batteries, chargers, hands-free devices and micro USB cables, are not waterproof and dust-resistant on their own.
If you send a waterproof or dust-resistant device to a Sony Service Centre for repair, our repair teams will test it to ensure your device still meets the requirements of its IP rating.
If you have any questions about the use of your device that are not answered here, please refer to our Customer Support Service for help. For relevant warranty information you can refer to the Important Information document, which is accessible via the Setup guide in your device."
The Apple just don't want handle any water damaged issue, but Sony announce they want to check and test it and judge the condition and situation. This is totally different with Apple, Apple no need test or check the water damaged for iphone 7, they don't responsibility or even taking any action to any water damaged incident, it's looks like all fault to be blame to the user. Will you like it? If unfortunately you get a faulty unit from them?
Did anyone else notice the contrast ratio value in this review? Shouldn't the iPhone 7 have a higher contrast ratio than the iPhone 6s since the 7 has deeper blacks and brighter whites

The first water-resistant phone without warranty for water damaged. It teach user don't try to wet the phone, because this is an expensive phone without warranty from water damaged.
I am already using iPhone 6s can I go for IPhone 7 ya 6s will be. Only better
fadhelqassim, 25 Sep 2016Now that Apple has disappointed early adopters with a mere incremental iPhone upgrade, and Sam... moreOkay mate that's true, but feeling own heart leap over the shiny brand-new gadget isn't a crime..
(Apple's products won't make me feel that way though.)
Now that Apple has disappointed early adopters with a mere incremental iPhone upgrade, and Samsung has done even worse by releasing exploding Galaxy Note 7s, the preposterous futility of the smartphone wars should be coming apparent. Those people who are trading in perfectly usable phones for the latest models are the suckers.
A brand new smartphone is anything but a status symbol. It simply means youÂ’ve been fooled into valuing a shiny new object over its impact on labor, the environment, or even your own time. And itÂ’s not entirely your own fault.
After all, our Twitter streams are filled with comments about AppleÂ’s latest product launch and links to Medium posts and unboxing videos by those delighted or vanquished by their new purchases. ItÂ’s hard not to want the button, the two-lens camera, or iris-recognition security. Such innovations make a single lens or thumbprint security feel, well, so last quarter.
Yet the gadgets truly in need of glorification in our Instagram feeds are those battered, bruised, and still-ticking devices that donÂ’t demand their own replacement every 365 days.
I'm thinking about buying iPhone 7 Plus
should i go for it or just iPhone 7
or should i wait for next year
Wxy, 22 Sep 2016LeEco announced it this month while Motorola Moto Z is already available now...LeEco Le Max 2 has been available for purchase since May 2016 ! I don't know if it was available in your country....I have seen the mobile myself couple of months ago with their proprietary CDLA technology. It's definitely not the iPhone to do this first!
iPhone 7 isnÂ’t as popular as iPhone 6S, apparently

iPhone 7 isnÂ’t as popular as iPhone 6S, apparently
Sales of the iPhone 7 may not be as great as Apple hoped for, with analysts suggesting shipments have fallen compared to last year.
GfK, GermanyÂ’s largest market research firm, says that sales of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus over the launch weekend were down by 25% year-on-year. ThatÂ’s compared to last SeptemberÂ’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus launch, which saw Apple achieve record-breaking sales.
