The 3-Minute Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review

The Apple iPhone7 Plus is one of the fastest of the Apple devices compared to earlier versions of the iPhone. The water resistance is a much-needed improvement with IP67 dust/water Ingress Protection. The storage on this device comes in 32GB or 128GB but has no expandable storage space for a microSD card. The 5.5” widescreen LCD multi-touch display comes with IPS technology. This makes it easy on the eyes, allowing for less eye strain over long periods of use. The display has a 1920x1080-pixel resolution at 401 PPI giving you a fully immersive HD resolution.
There have been some complaints about iOS 10 and its features. Some people complained when it originally came out that emojis were like Android. The device could have done with 4GB RAM rather than the slightly lower amount of 3GB RAM. If more RAM had been installed when the product originally launched then it would have fixed any issues with lag and iOS features. The other issue is that some of the features that came out with the iPhone 7 Plus had been out on Android devices for some time.
Is it for you?
Apple devices have traditionally had good camera capabilities, and this handset is no different. It features 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, 2x optical zoom; digital zoom up to 10x and Portrait mode. It gives you a unique camera experience that is a standard hallmark of Apple devices.
The battery lasts 2 hours longer then the iPhone 6. Apple may not have astounded us this time around, but that doesn’t make the iPhone 7 plus any less desirable. Despite its flaws, it's still one of the best smartphone’s money can buy. It has a spectacular processor, a stunning camera, a great operating system and much-improved battery life.

What we like
The iPhone 7 plus has stereo speakers really give stunning sound quality. The device also offers Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic which is a nice touch. The main camera is a duel 12MP Wide angle and a 12MP telephoto with 2x optical zoom, Quad-LED dual-tone flash, HDR Video.
What we don’t like
Most of the Apple products like to use proprietary accessories, and the 7 Plus was no exception to the Apple rule. The device does not have a headphone jack and doesn’t come with a super charger you have to buy it separately. Apple never really did very well with its battery life in this range of phones, something that was dealt with in later models.
Should you buy it?
If you have the standard iPhone 6 then you will find that the iPhone 7 Plus has notably improved camera. Add to that the battery and water resistance improvements and you have a worthwhile upgrade to a familiar phone design. Apple always gives you premium quality devices, so you can’t go wrong with such a solid handset.
