Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Review: Apple’s latest technique of bringing out an iPhablet that includes all the perfect bits of the smaller new iPhone has been a great one – however, this year, the iPhone 7 Plus is a phone that’s markedly good than the smaller model.

Last updated on May 28, 2020 3:51 pm

That’s mostly achieved via two issues: improved battery life and a progressive camera. The former is always made to be better, given the bigger size, however by including a dual-camera setup to the mix Apple has created a conscious struggle to make the 7 Plus look like a distinctly different alternative.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Design

iPhone 7 Plus

The feel and shape of the iPhone 7 Plus are very much like that of the two versions earlier than it. It’s large – properly large – especially if you add a case to it.

Yes, it has an expansive screen. However, it’s the iPhone 7 Plus’s height that makes it a handful.

In other respects, the design has been improved a little. The antenna bands that banned the back now curve throughout the bottom and top edges of the phone. At the back, the re’s a far more pronounced camera bump.

Full HD resolution sounds old hat now. Plenty of phones from LG, Samsung, and others have filled with ultra-sharp quad-HD screens for years. The iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t follow suit and retains to what Apple designates as a “Retina” display. It appears excellent, with the 5.5-inch display size.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Software

iPhone 7 Plus

Apple unveiled iOS 10 last June. As a part of the new update, Apple refined the home and lock screens, the control centers and notification, the 3D Touch experience, Siri, and improved the system apps. Apple did a good job refining the interface, and there are sufficient new features to enhance the user experience without complicating it. You may never use a few of those, and you’ll still get to experience the iOS in its full beauty.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Hardware and Performance

The iPhone 7 Plus retail box includes the standard accessories – a Lightning cable, a wall plug and Apple’s EarPods ending on a Lighting connector. The provided charger is 5V/1A which is a pity as the phone can charge twice as fast include a third-party 5V/2A charger.

It has a 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB/128 GB/256 GB internal storage and also has a Pressure-sensitive Home key powered by a brand new Taptic Engine. The iPhone 7 Plus are dust and water-resistant (IP67).

Apple has contained the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with a new-generation A10 Fusion chip. It has a quad-core CPU, a first for the iPhones, with two high-performance cores operating at 2.34GHz and two power-saving ones. The high-performance ones run about 40% quicker than the A9 chip and two times quicker than the A8.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Camera

Have a look on the back of the 7 Plus, and it has two 12MP cameras, one of that is a telephoto lens whereas the other is a wide-angle lens. In short, switching from wide-angle to telephoto provides you a 2x optical zoom, which suggests you don’t lose image quality whereas getting closer to your subject. it has a 7 MP front camera.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Battery Life

iPhone 7 Plus

One of the reasons I’d always suggest a Plus version of the iPhone over the standard one is battery life.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus has no shortage of battery capability, and it has a 2,900mAh battery capacity.

Whereas the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 dissatisfied me even in comparison with other small phones, the 7 Plus is a beast that runs going and going. I regularly plug it in to charge late at night with 30% or more battery to spare.
