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.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016I'd have iphone 7 and iphone6(due for selling),and the kag thing is real.Since instaling the 1... moreits there everywhere buddy...the most i have felt is on my nexus 7 1st gen..after its update its so slow..i have been pondering about flashing it back to an old firmware...i have seen this happen in many areas..even my ipad pro is somewhat laggy after the update..ans apps do crash, and the tab does restart..it happens so fast that the normal user may not even notice
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.

Why dont you ask apple to stop selling 256GB so that they can move on ... moreSo, don't buy it....
Why are you wasting your time blabbing about something most people (at least the ones I know) don't care about? Jealousy? No life? No girlfriend/boyfriend?
As much as i hate the new google Pixel, no mention of it in this article especially on conclusion page?
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016so is a floppy disk.... Move with the times, eh?That floored me. Ha ha
Why dont you ask apple to stop selling 256GB so that they can move on with times.
SD card speeds are constantly on the rise for the past 10 years and tit is projected that they have more such years. You are blinded by your support for apple.
It is just one of the ways for apple to fleece a lot of money for a small incremental memory bump.
