Buy the new iPhone 7 or not?
On 7 September Apple announced its two new family members: iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With more new features and brave design decision that has been stirring a lot of argument lately about them.
In this article, we are giving you almost everything you need to know about the new devices to help you decide whether you are going to buy any of them.
Apple iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Design
First let’s begin with the design. If you’re familiar with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus, you won’t see any major design difference. They basically look the same. However, the back antenna lines were slightly changed.
On the other side, there are many improvements of course. One of the most popular new features is that the new phones are now water resistant. However, they are not fully waterproof so don’t try to submerge them in water for a while for example. Other phones in the market do better in the water-resistance area such as Samsung Galaxy S7.
Shortly: There’s no big difference in the design but it’s water resistant and the back antenna lines were slightly changed.
iPhone 7 Headphone Jack Removed
Another difference is that the 3.5mm headphone jack is now gone. Yes, that was a brave decision from Apple. However, not everybody finds it a good decision.
Now there’s only a lighting port which you should use for both charging and your new headphones. Otherwise, you have the choice to go with the wireless option.
Apple has already released a new wireless earphone called “AirPods”. They have a microphone and they can automatically sense when they are in your ears to connect to your device.
Shortly: There’s one Jack for Both Charging and Headphones and you can use the Airpods instead
No Home Button!
The home button has gone. It is now a surface with a bunch of pressure sensors and haptic vibration motors that gives you the feel of a button but physically it is not really a button. Some people may miss the feel of clicking the button because it is really a solid surface, but it is really well-designed to make you feel you’re clicking a real button.
iPhone 7 Plus Camera a Huge Enhancement
Moreover, the camera is a major improvement in iPhone 7 Plus with its dual camera. It is equipped with two identical back cameras with the same focal length.
This would provide you with the best shots you would ever take out of a mobile phone. The quality of the camera in iPhone 7 Plus is one of the major enhancements that makes it stand out from its predecessor.
Welcome the New A10 Fusion Processor
The processing power is really competitive to even laptops. Apple’s new A10 Fusion processor is 120 times faster than the original iPhone.With the introduction of the high-performance A10 Fusion processor, you will absolutely feel the difference. Also, Apple was aware of the energy-performance tradeoff so the processor has two low-power cores that can significantly reduce overall power dissipation along with a high-capacity battery that lasts about two hours longer than older iPhones.
Shortly: the New A10 Processor is 120 times faster than the original iPhone.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus What about the Price?
For the pricing, iPhone 7 starts at $649 with 32GB of storage up to $849 for the 256GB version. For iPhone 7 Plus, it starts at $769 for the 32GB model up to $969 for the 256GB edition. You also have to take into consideration that you may need to purchase the headphone adapters and/or wireless headphones.
