for those still commenting about the missing "jack"
you should see JerryRigEverything opinion on this here:
just for adding another point of view.
I fiddle around one of those iPhone 7 today in the shop, and found out it's totally disappointing.
Aside from same old boring design (we knew that), its home button was far from comfortable, rather counter-intuitive.. it has pressure sensor in it and you need to get used to adjusting how much force you put. e.g. : When you want to hit multi-tasking, you'll double-tap the button, and chances are you'll end up seeing one-handed mode :-<
And 3D touch is still useless compared to Action Launcher's swipe-to-show widget (shutter).
Come to think of it, when I convert to Android, the first thing I missed was clickable home key of iPhone (sorry I don't like Sammy that time because of TouchWiz).
Therefore if current iPhone users are completely used to this non-clickable button, I think they also come to feel comfortable with Android's software key or capacitive touch key.
Combined with cool features of Nougat, Android stands good chance in near future AS LONG AS OEMs give us timely update.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016Could have easily been done with a headphone jack. Nice denial thoughYes, by making the chassis bigger... then people will say that it is bigger or thicker than the others...
I am not fully agreeing with the removable of the headphone jack but sooner or later 3.5mm jack will be phased out.

"And yet, the iPhone 7 will probably go down in history as the one that got rid of the jack first. Controversy? Yes, Apple loves it."
Well, you are wrong about the jack. LeEco Le was the FIRST who "got rid of the jack first". I won't say Apple follow them, but they wasn't the first...
Wxy, 23 Sep 2016Who will buy it? Those who can...
I buy one cause I can afford one and I want one...Lmao!!!!!! Because you waste money means you and your choice is better.
And if you are smarter than that it means you can't afford it?
Your type is hilarious

The simulated sensation of pressing into a home button opens a lot of possibilities in bridging new user experience from virtual to actual world.
Changing the headphone connector doesn't offer any performance advantages to compensate for the inconvenience, if it's still exactly the same analog headphone on the other end.
Just like the switch to Lightning connector never really improved performance to compensate us for throwing out all our 30-pin accessories and devices - the bottleneck is still good old USB 2.0 on the other end.
Of course, all these years its only Apple who benefited from users replacing their ecosystem with Lightning accessories and docks. Like the profits they'll earn from the new Lightning connected audio products.
