We heard many rumors about the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus before its release. And guess what, many of them are true. On 7th sep Apple finally released its new iphone’s, with two variants iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The iphone 7 being the smaller one and 7 Plus with the bigger screen. As expected apple dropped the headphone jack from its new iPhone. It means their is one port less in the new iPhone.
There’s nothing revolutionary about new iPhone but yes, their are some significant changes that are been made by Apple. The iPhone now are water proof (30 minutes up to 1m). Apple have always made a statement with their phone. Whether it be a design statement or performance. So here are the top 10 things you need to know about iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
10 Things about iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
Nothing that significant change in the design of the iPhones.The design is similar to iPhone 6S
The stylish horizontal line present in iPhone 6s
has been removed. iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will ship in 4 colours Silver, gold, rose gold, matte black and jet black. Among all of the colours Matte black is my pick. And even the antenna bands moved from the back of the device to the edges.
They removed the button too!! Yes, their is no more button present in the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Instead apple has added a haptic engine behind the button design. The surface is now pressure sensitive, like the macbook trackpad. The home button will sense the pressure and respond accordingly to pressure.
The iPhone has the new A10 fusion chip inside, which has a 64-bit 4 core CPU. 40% faster than A9 of iPhone 6s and double the speed of the A8 processors. iPhone 7 and 7 Plus also has a ramped up graphics performance, which is 40% more powerful than the A9. An iPhone 7 lasts two hours longer than an iPhone 6s, this is basically because of the better performing processor.
To be frank, they are quite late in adding this feature to the iphone. The new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are said to be water and dust resistance. The phone is water resistant for 30 minutes up to 1m. Many claimed the iPhone 6s of being water resistant, but in the latest release apple made it official that iphone 7 and 7 Plus will both be water and dust resistant.
The camera in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is the most significant changes made in the phone. The smaller 4.7-inch device has a f/1.8 lens that lets 50 per cent more light onto the lens, a new 12MP sensor which takes better low-light and sharper photos. The bigger iPhone 7 Plus has a dual-lens camera which increases the photo quality while zooming. Both the camera are 12 MP sensors but one camera has 28mm lens were as the other has a 56mm lens for 2X optical zoom. The phone also include optical image stabilization, new image processing chip and quad led flash on both phones. And the new 7MP front facing camera sensor, which is a pretty good upgrade.
The display is mostly same as the iPhone 6s. Same old size, resolution and still using the same IPS technology. But the screen is 25% more brighter. It is time for apple to shift to OLED display. The people at apple need to level up.
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus both have stereo speaker build in. There’s speaker grill in the bottom of the phone on both side of the lightning port. And other, next to the ear piece. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus speakers are still to be tested, no proper description about them are available.
Yes the leaks and the rumors were true. Apple finally ditched the headphone jack. Instead they will ship in with the lightning earpods. Which will directly plug to the lightning port. RIP headphone jack. Well you will need a adaptor to charge the phone and listen to music at the same time.
The Airpods are the new release along with the iPhone 7 and 7Plus from apple. These are wireless optional earpods. The Airpods are priced at $160 (like you really need that). The Airpods are integrated with siri, to use siri wirelessly. These Airpods basically are not required fancy gadget according to me.
Yes both iphone 7 and 7 Plus come with NFC for the apple Pay feature. Well this is just a small upgrade in the specification column.
The above are some changes made in the new iPhone 7 and7 Plus. They still have the camera bump. So you will not be able to keep the phone on the table and type. Do you really need this phone? This is the question you should ask to yourself before buying the phone. The Airpods are basically fancy money making stuff for the people at apple. Like come on, $160 for that wireless earphones. This is not how you start a wireless revolution.
Yes I might say the camera is a worthy upgrade in the new iphone. But there are lot many alternative for the iPhone like the OnePlus 3
, Moto G4 plus
and many more. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be costing around Rs 60000 and Rs 70000 respectively. There’s no official word, these are my assumptions based on their past pricings.
That’s it with my view on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. What do you think about the new iPhone? Is it worth buying or waste of money? Tell us your views in the comment section below.
