As for between iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, it’s majorly a choice of how big screen you want to go and if you want a better camera.
Overall, iPhone 7 Plus is a disappointment with nothing truly innovative as expected from APPLE. Surely you can enjoy power features and better gaming, movie experience still talking about iPhone we certainly expected lot more of it.
In an expected familiar launch ceremony, APPLE launches its two new smartphones; iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus here in Sans Francisco.
Last year, the only difference between iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was larger screen, with iPhone 6 Plus being the first large screen smartphone from the company. This time however, the two versions have some other variations to them other than traditional large screen for Plus model.
Fundamentally, the biggest difference between the two models released in Sans Francisco is iPhone 7 Plus’s dual rear cameras. Yes you here it right, iPhone 7 Plus comes with two 12MP cameras for detailed and bright images. Though the technology has already been launched by other companies, it’s the first time we are going to get it with iPhone 7 Plus. We will come back to cameras later.
Apart from cameras, most other features are quite similar to iPhone 7. The company has retained evolution of design for iPhone 7 Plus from iPhone 6 and 6S. A solid state Home Button is a new addition though. The new solid state Home Button has a haptic feedback and 3D touch pressure sensitive. Again this technology has been in market for quite some time; still it’s the first time we will get it in an iPhone. It can feel the pressure you exerted which means that you can use it by either resting your finger or by pressing the button. The subtle transition from glass front to metal back is quite pleasant experience.
The new colors is another new for iPhone 7 Plus. The jet black and glossy black definitely looks more intriguing and intimating to eyes.
A super enhanced battery is another new for iPhone 7 Plus. Though we might never be able to know the precise capacity of iPhone batteries, the company claims that iPhone 7 Plus battery can last up to 15 hours on Wi-Fi. This might be highly optimistic estimation from company and only real-life results will reveal through potential of battery.
A-10 64-bit Fusion Chip Quad core processor promises to be 40% faster than previously used A-9 chip in iPhone 6. This will be coupled with new iOS 10 that promises to be more elegant, efficient and versatile.
Lastly, in terms of storage, iPhone 7 Plus has more storage capacity than previous models with 32Gb, 64GB and 128GB versions available to choose from.
iPhone 7 Plus boosts a 5.5-inch LED screen with 1920 X 1080 pixel resolution (nothing new to cheer about!). However, the company claims that iPhone 7 Plus screen is 25% brighter than its previous models.
Our experience of brightness for iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t reveal much difference from iPhone 6 experience. However, the brightness remain crisp and easy to see.
Here’s the change from previous models! iPhone 7 Plus boosts dual front facing speakers for stereo sound. This remains same for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The company claims that there new stereo speakers are twice loud as compared to iPhone6. Still we reserve judgment for you to experience in real-life situation.
Well, iPhone 7 Plus is water resistant phone (nothing up beat here). We mean seriously there have been loads of water resistant phones already in market and no genuine innovation from the company.
This certainly is the most weird change we all were expecting. Seriously what good will it do to remove headphone jack from iPhone? Anyway, as for now iPhone 7 Plus and 7 neither one has a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack; instead Earpods are offered that can be connected using Lightning connector. Alternatively, you can pay (159 Pounds) extra to opt for wireless Airpods.
Again APPLE fails to fails to innovate anything new here too. iPhone 7 Plus comprises dual 12 MP rear cameras for better crisp and vibrant images. However, the technology has already been implied by many other brands and APPLE only adapt the technology with some tweaks including; Optical Image stabilization, Depth of Field mode etc.
