Some of the photos show a bit of grain and the color just seems a bit off. The iPhone 7 phones are just a place holder for the iPhone 8 which will celebrate 10 years of Apple
Truely the best phablet there is. Pixel is the only rival iPhone 7 plus has. Tough it's obviously clear that A10 will beat the crap out of SD821 easily. I wish Google build their own SoC like the rumor we are hearing. That would be great. Apple vs Google fight.
Can't wait for Pixel review.

Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016Also Samsung displays are pure garbage. over saturated cartoon like colors and Pentile matrix?... moreAgain you prove that fanboys read something and then interpret it to suit their opinion.
The review clearly states that along with the iPhone 7+ the NOKIA LUMIA 950 and SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 5 have the same accurate color representation.
So yes, other manufacturers have achieved that BEFORE Apple
Good review. In my opinion, the iPhone Plus is the best phone on the market this year too, just like the 6s Plus and 6 Plus were in 2015 and 2014. Nothing compares to the 7 Plus' usability, stability and performance. Incredibly satisfied.
By the way, those not buying the Jet Black are making a mistake. Yeah it has those tiny scratches, but I can't even see them unless I put the phone in direct sunlight and actually look for them. They are completely invisible 99% of the time. And yes, I've carried it naked for 3 weeks now. It looks splendid and has a much, much better grip than the regular aluminum finish. I couldn't use my 6s Plus without a case because I always felt like I would drop it but not with the Jet Black. I love this finish.

AnonD-76091, 12 Oct 2016Where can one find the 5v/2A charger for 7 plus? The most annoying of all the things I suffer ... moreHello.
I've previously tried to plug the iPhone 6s Plus into a 2A Samsung charger and it didn't charge faster. Now with the 7 Plus I used IKEA's KOPPLA 3-port USB charger (google it by product number - 102.918.81). And it worked for the iPhone! I was charging with this thing an HTC One M9 and the iPhone 7 Plus and both got their batteries at 100% in about 2 hours.
Hope this helps.
Exactly as GSMArena says ''Apple's iPhone 7 Plus is a best-seller that doesn't even need an advertisement''.
This goes in fact for all the products branded with the Apple logo, and this kind of bothers me a lot, because their products are only decent hardware embedded in a nice package. At least Samsung throws along with the hefty price a good hardware also, even if this means nothing, because they're terrible at optimizing their devices.
These two so called best smartphone manufacturers are so powerful only because they do only one thing far better than everyone else, which is marketing. I'm sad really...
Finally a decent scecs wise phone by Apple. Seriously if there were any sub 1080p resolution display, and 32gb base storage this would be a laughing stock again. Still not gonna buy it, not because I don't have the money, but because it's not a good value for money. I can buy a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 that would basically be a fraction of the Iphone price and serve no lesser purpose. Currently I own a Huawei p9 + flagship, while certainly a bit overpriced and not the best I am happy with it. But I can't justify paying like 300$ extra for what arguably better software and useless prestige. The only thing is the support which Apple does better and could justify buying the phone when the prices go down.
Super performance by both CPU & GPU.
Huawei & MediaTek should learn from this & put better CPU & GPU architecture in their SOC's.
Just wondering howcome 6Cores GPU performance is better than 12Cores Mali 880 & Adreno 530(not sure howmuch core does it have) GPU's?
"OIS allows the iPhone 7 Plus to drop the shutter speed to as low as 1/4s when shooting handheld"
Congrats for this.

can i say one thing..the absence of a number row on the keyboard is baffling...its not there in my ipad pro too, so giving the reason that there is no space is just foolish..whats the point of a multilingual keyboard when you can't quicktype numbers??
on the other hand the iphone looks good..except for the completely unnecessary haptic engine and the lightning headphones..
and finally the ui review page is a copy paste of the iphone 7 review..atleast reword it for our entertainment??
For me, the iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best handsets that I have ever had, might not be the best handset on the market but that is my opinion. The design has not changed since the 6 series handsets but I liked the design & the introduction of the black & jet black handsets have made a difference. What ever happened to iconic design? Why does the design have to change year in year out? Sony have never really changed the design of their phones but no one batters an eye lid to them!
Yes, there are better screens out there but I have no issues with the way that the screen works on my iPhone. Galaxy screens do pack more brightness & better blacks though.
The camera is amazing! When zooming in it is still clear & gives very good colour with hardly any grain, simply superb!
The speakers are very clear & a lot louder than my previous 6 Plus, not on par with the HTC M8 or M9 handsets, but a step in the right direction.
Even there is little difference from the technology used in the screen of the iPhones the 7 Plus seems more responsive & accurate to press.
Definitely a lot quicker using day to day apps & tasks but I feel the Touch ID is a little to quick as a very light single press on the button unlocks your phone.
& for people (SAVOR!!!!) who continually say that you need iTunes & a PC to set the phone up & get your data from, I have had my 7 Plus for over a week now & I have not yet had the need to plug into iTunes & I have all my music, apps, messages, contacts, pictures & settings that I had on my 6 Plus.
It charges with 5V/1A for 4 hours (which is quite long) and provide 75h endurance.
Using 2A charger reduces that time but what about the battery life? If battery is not compatible, using higher amperage charger reduces the life cycle.
Best phone on the market bar none.
Curious about Surface Phone though.

If you want an SD card device, for whatever reason, go get one. But stop jabbering about it and polluting reviews about products which have omitted it, because their target audience is not interested in it. Apple doesn't do SD cards, or FM radios. Neither does Google. Get a life and move on.
