4 hours normal charging time or 2 hours "fast" charging time for a phone with a 2900mah battery?! Apple is falling behind in terms of battery tech, when competitors can charge their phones with almost half time less than what the iphone 7+ can do. Even the battery endurance is mediocre. I charge my phone every 36 hours on normal use, but iphone 7+ users charge their batteries in less than 24 hours. Battery life is an important aspect of a phone, why cant apple put decent batteries that would charge in no more than 90 minutes and have the endurance to last 36 hours on normal use?
"Effectively, it's a 56mm f/2.8 lens which is twice as narrow in terms of field of view and about 1 ⅓ stops slower compared to the 28mm f/1.8 main lens. This means that the main camera lets in about 1.3x more light than the telephoto"
Every stop means twice more light. Its a exponential thing. This 1+1/3 stops is something like 2.5x more light, since 2^1.33 = 2.5.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017why "the king"? Not at all... apple phones have many limitations. It's only fashion overpriced... moreusability, accessibility, build quality, support, innovation, useful features, design...
That's what make a phone like iPhone the "king"
why "the king"? Not at all... apple phones have many limitations. It's only fashion overpriced stuff. No removable battery, no 3.5mm jack, no microsd slot, no irda, no fm... Stop with this ummotivated hype please, stay on facts not on "beauty"
You guys have to realize by now that the iPhone will never, ever receive a microSD card slot. I know what Apple is like. They would never implement an SD card slot. Especially when they have massive capacity iPhones now. (hint: 128GB & 256GB, heck even 64GB is pretty dang huge)
I also highly doubt the iPhone will receive FM radio support either. FM Radio is an outdated standard and has pretty much been replaced by streaming apps such as Spotify or Apple Music.
So I don't really see why you guys have these things listed as shortcomings.

In the conclusion of this review you are stating the fact that "It is also the first to offer secondary telephoto lens.". How can you say this when Huawei P9 offered this with aprox half a year before Apple. It's like the statement that Apple invented video calling by introducing FaceTime when we had video calling years before iPhones even came out on the market. This free marketing on how great and unique are the Apple products is embarrassing.
AnonD-617189, 05 Dec 2016Well it came out. The Pixel XL destroyed it in all but 1 category. Probably shouldn't have sai... moretechnically what apple is doing is smart chosen that resolution your eyes won't be able to tell the difference from 1440p to 1080p or phone having 4k resolution will probably be next but for screens being from 4 to 6inches won't see a huge difference you can still have 1080p resolution with higher pixel density Android handsets are just following trend for what users want.
Changing resolution on your device by rooting will result in better battery life better performance and would probably outshine apple maybe xda has done this already would love to see these results not really impressed.
but also not good idea unless you know what your doing as rooting.
Apple should cover their phones in its full colour not put the back of the phone in gold or what ever and the front in white that sucks man full colour and get rid of 32 gigs it like 16 gigs and stop focusing to munch on the dam camera it's like this is the only thing they focus on and please make this phone more water proof and more does
AnonD-538833, 13 Oct 2016Truely the best phablet there is. Pixel is the only rival iPhone 7 plus has. Tough it's obviou... moreWell it came out. The Pixel XL destroyed it in all but 1 category. Probably shouldn't have said that, huh.
its Not king compared to other phones that are bosting higher resolution than the iPhone big difference maybe gs7 lg5 and other phones should start using same 1920x1080p resolution to see the true benchmark results. But yes compared to the new phones now it's beating them will not deny that but just making an observation...😈😈😈😈
I like iphone7plus but something is improve in about 3.5 audio jack wireless charging and improve ram and add expandable storage and improve camera like 16 mefapixel front camera and back 21 megapixel and brightness and lowlight camera
Dearest electronic smartphone enthusiasts.GsmArena,s review is unbiased and complete!!Just one thing must be mentioned!?Users screen share from 5.5 inch whole screen is 3.7 inch !!!But it must have something extra for $ 1200 less and more !!?Many because of being very pricey can't have it,but it make a few thanks can have it happy + making and creating jobs which is praiseworthy!!Of course,it has the highest security too!!Nevertheless,I myself prefer having 5 + Mi Max or golden Apple of China!Why!?To give 4 as a gift,one for my Virtual Grand Dream Museum,and one left for myself!!!That is how the android has made the works much more easier!!!Thanks kindly with the best regard to mentioned names,especially Apple....Justice Rights is Factwriting,...
Way way overpriced status symbol for idiots in third world countries to buy.....
