    Okay but a few quirks

    I love my new iPhone 7 but it's not quite as much as I'd hoped. First, the good: - The new jet black body color is really nice. Like most owners, I utilize a case but when the phone is naked, the shiny jet black body looks stunning - The camera is definitely noticeably better than its predecessors. The colors and sharpness are outstanding. The new dual-camera portrait feature allows you to take razor sharp professional looking shallow depth of field portrait photos. - It seems to be a tad brighter than my wife's iPhone 6S Plus but I really have to squint to see it. - Sound from the built in speakers is much improved from my old iPhone 6 Plus but still no match for a good set of ear buds, earphones or external speakers. - It's a little more water resistant. While not completely immersible like Samsung's phones claim to be, (I know someone who depended on that waterproofing when he accidentally left his phone sitting atop his parked car in the rain yet still ended up with a moisture damaged bricked phone) it claims to be more resistant to splashes, accidental exposures and *ahem* things like rain. That's about it. Some of the other "improvements" that Apple claims are a sharper screen in addition to being brighter, faster, LTE, faster processor and better battery life. However, I haven't noticed significant improvement in these areas personally. Now for the bad: - While I see a slightly brighter screen on the 7 than the 6S, the sharpness is about the same. With both phones side by side, I actually prefer the 6S screen. It's cooler and more natural looking. The 7 is noticeably warmer and has a harsh yellow tint to it. You can tweak the colors in the settings to make it cooler but out of the box, my wife's 6S display wins hands down and it's not even close. - I don't notice any improvement or difference in performance with LTE, wifi or even during routine tasks. I'm not a gamer on my phone, so maybe that's where the performance difference is most noticeable. But in day to day tasks like texting, email, web browsing and using regular apps, I see virtually no difference in performance between the two phones. - Rear camera and scrapped earphone jack aside, the body is nearly identical to the 6 /6S. - Speaking of the scrapped headphone jack, if like me, you use corded high-end headphones or buds with your iPhone, it's time to invest in a Bluetooth set. This was one of the "improvements" that was actually a step back if you ask me. My fave Audio-Technica headphones and $200 Bose earbuds are now useless with my iPhone unless I purchase a lightning to 3.5mm adapter that Apple would be all too happy to sell me at extra cost. Seeing as how I'm already invested in good phones and buds, it's not really a choice. So factor that cost into the overall price of the phone if you need the same. - The force touch home button feels a little weird at first but you can adjust the haptic feedback. It's even weirder when the battery drains and the button becomes unresponsive. So, as you see, there are some improvements but not enough to warrant an upgrade unless you were a couple generations behind like I was with my 6 Plus. If you have a 6S, I would absolutely wait for the next iPhone model this fall. If you have a 6 or older, you can take the leap. The differences between the 7 and those models will be more noticeable than between the 7 and 6S, especially if your phone is a few years old or older.

    I have been buying apple products for over a decade now. There used to be a certain magic about opening a Apple product. Lately as everyone has noticed, Apple has been dropping the ball and lacking in innovation. I did have that magic for the iPhone 6s plus, but unfortunately I cannot say this for the iPhone 7 plus. The only reason I upgraded was to take advantage of the lower cost per month promotion they had and to save money on my phone bill (also to get my father a new, and what I feel is a better phone, aka my old iPhone 6s plus). First, the big part of the missing magic is that is really feels exactly the same as my 6s plus. When I went from the 6 to the 6s plus, the speed difference was noticeable, the camera was obviously better, and it just felt like a better phone with 3D touch being new too. The iPhone 7 might be different slightly, but not in a positively noticeable way. Even though it has a gig more of memory, it is roughly the same speed. Even though the camera was "improved" the resolution on the phone wasn't so good luck trying to see any difference. Lack of the headphone jack stinks. The quality of the headphones included was obviously of a lesser quality, and the dongle included also feels like it will fall apart quickly. The biggest selling point was supposed to be the stereo sound. I am a musician and I have to say that it is marginally louder (sometimes its uncomfortably loud), and the quality is not much better. Nothing like as was advertised in that commercial with the guy diving into the pool. Honestly, unless you are taking advantage of a deal to give a loved one a better phone and pay less per month, either save your money or just get the google pixel which will most likely be my next phone unless Apple delivers with the iPhone 8. The only other real reason to get it is if you are like me and have an iMac and an apple watch. I do feel like apple has been losing me as a customer and I have already started shifting away from their eco-system to a windows/android based one. I also guess it is nice that it is now splash and dust resistant (could be water-proof like the samsung though).

    Excellent & Reliable Phone

    I recently purchased the new iPhone 7 plus phone for Verizon. I have been a Droid user (Samsung) for the past 4 years - which I definitely loved my phones. I had the iPhone 4 back in the day, which I never had any issues. I went to a Droid because I wanted a larger phone. Apple has improved the size of their phones, to make them comparable to their competition. So here is a gist of my opinion on this phone: Pros: large screen, screen quality, stereo speakers, waterproof, easy to use, processor is fast, good quality camera (both front & back) - I had issues with my Samsung camera which annoyed me so much, new home button is nice (took less than a day to get used to), battery life is great, now has widgets like a Droid phone, touch 3D is nice (but that is with iOS10) Cons: not as customizable as a Droid phone, no headphone jack (but this is not really an issue because I never charge my phone and listen to music with headphones at the same time). Overall, this phone has met my expectations thus far! If you are looking for a large, fast and fun smartphone, this is your phone.

    I've switched between Android phones and iPhones several times. I like both. This latest switch was from Android to iPhone. Last time I had the iPhone I wasn't super happy with iOS.I just couldn't get used to it, and didn't like the lack of customization. Fast forward to now, and for whatever reason I am perfectly ok with iOS. Not too many changes in the system, just in me. I guess I don't really care about all the customization of Android anymore. You can do enough on the iPhone. I was getting annoyed at the "quirks" of the Android phones. Small issues that would keep coming back up. The iPhone seems more stable and more consistent. I wouldn't say better....just not as touchy. The iPhone 7 Plus that I got has been great. I like the larger size of the Plus (I came from a Note 5...once you go big, you can't go back) and the phone feels good in my hand. Call quality and reception have been excellent. I would buy another iPhone in a minute. Well, to be honest, I would also buy another Android phone if the urge called. I really just don't think there is a big enough difference between Android and iOS anymore to matter much. They are both great. The only issue I have with the iPhone (and most phones) is having the volume buttons directly on the opposite side of the power button. Inevitably every time I try to adjust the volume, my other fingers are hitting the power button, making the screen go dark. Maybe it's me, I don't know. To wrap it up, there really is nothing wrong with this phone, and the constant iOS updates are nice.

    Do not Buy BB Warrenty on iPhone...

    Took our new iPhone7Plus back to Best Buy who claimed their warranty covered anything, even replacement. Was told to "go to the Apple Store" for service, as BB doesn't stock replacements. Never mind that the three dumb-bunnies in the Best Buy phone store never even offered to have Geek Squad check it out, they just said "..take it to the Apple Store" to debug it and possibly replace it". I called for the Store Manager. He came over and said the same thing.... we can't help you, go to the Apple Store. Fortunately there's an Apple Store 15 minutes from BB... I asked why I'd bought the BB warranty that the salesperson had hyped over the Apple warranty,, and the BB store manager said that they didn't have replacement phones. We were told when we bought the phones a few months ago that the "BB Warranty was so much better than AppleCare and covered more kinds of damage, etc." "The store manager - Bob - said he'd talk to his staff on Saturday.....So off we went to Apple and waited our turn.. software reset, and all seems well so far..took two hours at the Apple Store tho... BB Geeks could have at least tried?. Best Buy, NEVER EVER purchasing anything, much less a "Geek Squad Warranty" again.. you guys never even offered to help...Shame on you .... your "service" is a sham.... Like · Reply · 4 mins

    I have had the IPhone 7 plus 128 go model for about a month now. I am very happy with it. It is easy to use , takes great pictures and has a water resistance rating. Being a plumber , that is a handy feature. I have had a windows phone , which I loved , but developer app support is almost non existent , as is the overall commitment from Microsoft. I also had a Samsung Galaxy S5 , which was also great ( and water resistant ). I moved away from the Samsung for 3 reasons , 1 is that my entire family is completely entrenched in the Apple ecosystem and it made it much easier for me join them and enjoy the benefit of having instant help if I have a question. 2 , IOS updates , Apple makes operating system updates for many generation s of their phones , so in turn , I can stay up to date ( as much as possible ) on an older model. 3 , Samsung does not offer this , generally the Android operating system is only available within 2 model years , then it is time to upgrade to the next model if you are trying to stay up to date with the operating system. I think all smart phones are great but with the Apple support that is available without fragmentation and available to me at home ,it seemed like a no brainer.

    I've had every iteration of the iPhone since the very beginning and every time they seem to step up their game and make a great new phone. I haven't had any problems with the structure of the phone itself, (only iOS issues, as usual) only the removal of the headphone jack. I get apple thinks it needs to pioneer this new wireless world it believes in but at least make an option with headphones available to those who don't own Bluetooth headphones. The dongle that they provide you is so small that I lose it almost every day. On top of that it would be great if it allowed you to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time and alas it doesn't. I thought the Headphone jack-lessness wouldn't bother me before buying the phone and 3 months in I can tell you I've thought about downgrading back to the 6. It's that annoying. The only thing that is keeping me is the great camera, display and how smoothly this runs compared to the previous models. If you don't mind a phone without a headphone jack and have Bluetooth headphones you'll enjoy this phone, hands down. If you're considering upgrading and thinking this won't bother you- wait until the next model.

    Love iPhone but camera disappoints

    I upgraded to this iPhone 7 Plus from an iPhone 6 for two main reasons: screen size and camera. I am enjoying the larger screen and the iPhone overall as I have been in the Apple ecosystem for some time now. The camera is touted as being even better than the iPhone 6. Yes, it has better specs (12mp) but I do not see much if any improvement in quality. I can detect no improvements in bright light situations (neither are bad) but the 7 Plus seems not quite as good to me in some low light situations. I was really attracted to the 2x optical zoom which utilizes a separate lens. I was very disappointed in lower light performance of this feature. It definitely exhibits a watercolor effect. In lower light (indoors) I have to use the primary camera lens without zooming and crop later. It is okay in most bright light situations, however. The iPhone 7 Plus camera has a white balance that tends too much toward the warm end for me. So, I like the phone and the camera is not bad, but not the improvement I was expecting over my old iPhone 6 camera.
