    If you are already on an iPhone 6, I would not recommend getting the 7. The improvements are minor at best, and there currently seems to be an issue with HD voice in particular with Verizon and some AT&T customers. Basically if you are switching from lte to 3G you can get dropped from cell service, and in some cases you have to do a full restore to get cell functionality back. Apple and the carriers are blaming each other, so until they can resolve this issue I cannot recommend this product.

    So I bought this thinking I was getting a steal by buying it when it was on sale for $99.00 rather than buying it at full price or buying it with installment payments like everyone wants us to do now. I did get a better deal than buying it either of those 2 ways, but it wasn't as good as I though it was. My monthly access fee jumped to $40 a month vs. the $20 a month I used to pay, it's how they make up the money of you not paying full price or paying the installment payments. Doing the math I'm saving a few bucks a month, but not nearly as much as I originally thought I was saving. Still a great product that I'm very happy to own after moving up from my 4S.

    I was very impressed with the phone until I woke up Thursday morning. I saw an alert saying someone was activating my old phone and trying to use it with my number. Apparently the employee who wiped my phone of data screwed up. The problem is that by doing so it got into the wrong hands and it was used for spam. By doing so Apple shut my account down and after 6 hrs of spending time with Best Buy and Apple they still can't figure out how to get me up and running again. It want worth trading it in. I would take that phone back in a heartbeat instead of dealing with this.

    I was reluctant to upgrade due to the increasing costs of renewing. Plans change, cost go up, and I hardly use my minutes or data so it seems like a waste of money for many of the plans.. However, when this phone was offered with a monthly credit, and the data rolls over, I had to abandon my 5c. This phone is easier to read due to the larger screen, and battery life seems better too. I really like the quality of the images and video. I was able to able to leave my digital slr at home on a recent trip, and got great pictures and video. Unfortunately I filled the 32gb storage before my trip was over. I'll shot HD instead of 4K next time.

    Galaxy to iPhone

    I switched from Galaxy S5 to an iPhone 7 mostly due to pressure of sharing and easier contact with family who almost all have iPhones. The process of buying the phones went smoothly, but the process of moving my information from my S5 to the iPhone 7 didn't go smoothly. I took my phones home and tried to use the "Move to IOS" app and it wouldn't work which was beyond frustrating. Had to run back to the store to have their help the next day which was a pain, but not necessarily their fault. Now that it is set up, I like it so far. There are definitely things that I'm missing from the android system, though and things I'm still learning.

    I got one of these at the same time as my wife, because they were cheaper than the 6s. the apps run smoother than my 5s that I upgraded from and the battery is obviously holding a charge better than the last phone did in its final months. THe phone reception itself has been a bit inconsistent which is frustrating as the 5s was awesome for me. my other complaint would be the lack of a dedicated headphone jack. not really an innovation in my mind, just a limitation of function. Ultimately though, I am still blown away by what our phones do these days, and the crazy high tech world we live in.

    The phone itself is very nice but two issues are still unresolved. First is the side by side process of transferring information from the old phone to the new. That didn't work and my contacts are still not all transferred. The other issue is the inability to send an iMessage or text message. It seems that my phone won't connect to wifi making all my messages undeliverable. For the cost of these phones is it too much to ask that their basic functions work right out of the box?

    Phone is great but not much to say about it that hasn't already been said! The main reason for my rating is the after purchase service I received at the Concord NH location. I bought two iPhones and had issues getting them both activated. I went to the store seeking assistance and was very satisfied with the service received. The tech took the time to go through every step and assisted when I was on the phone with Verizon. Got both activated and was then asked if they could assist in any other way. Impressive after purchase service is what will keep me coming back!

    Wondered if 32 GB would be enough but I do t save many pictures, no videos so the rep said it would be fine for years. I asked if the updates would fill up the 32GB too fast and he said no worries. My last phone I bought the 64 GB,and after 2 1/2 years still had lots of storage available. The battery stays charged longer on this new phone compared to my iPhone 6. It lasts 2-3 days compared to my 6 that I now have to charge every day. Love when I buy a new IPhone that it's so easy to use since newer ones still have the user friendly features. I will always buy Apple phones. They are the best!

    Have been an iPhone user for a number of years and upgraded my 6 for this 7. I wanted to keep the same case, which I was able to do and liked that I didn't have to buy all new chargers, etc. for once! This phone gives me a lot more memory than I had before and I didn't feel the need for the 8 or X. Only thing I've noticed that is a little frustrating is that my bluetooth cuts out when I am listening to music through my car speakers. It goes right back on but is a bit annoying. Took a bit to get used to the new "click" on the home button. Otherwise pleased with the purchase!

    iPhone 7 easy setup

    I bought the iPhone 7 as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was cheaper to buy it from Best Buy than Verizon. I have always gotten my phones from Verizon and was a little worried about installing the sim card and establishing the service. The sim card was simple and the setup of the phone was very easy. The phone was up and running in less than an hour. I used Verizon cloud to reload the phone and the only things that didn't copy over were the Pinterest and Kohl's signon credentials. The phone even kept the same ringtones and connected right away to the Verizon network.

    Great iPhone, even though it's not the newest

    I upgraded from the iPhone SE (and am a student so don't have the budget for the newest edition). This phone is great, has double the space of my previous phone (which was a big need for me). The only thing that I've noticed so far is that the battery life is not the greatest even when I take energy efficient measures, but will usually last through the bulk of my day while I'm not home, getting down to 20% if I've fully charged it the night before.

    I’ve been eyeing this phone for a while but I didn’t want to pay a monthly fee just to have the phone so I waited. I had a iPhone 5s and it’s a good little phone but I wanted something better. So I finally decided to take the plunge and buy the iPhone 7 and I just love this phone. I like that I can multi task with it and the camera is awesome. I went to take pictures of the Christmas lights and I tried my old camera but the pictures didn’t look very good. I than turned around and used my new iPhone 7 and the pictures look beautiful and clear. So I just love this phone.

    I have loved owning an iphone, its the only type of smart phone I have ever had. This time however my most recent purchase of the iphone 7 came with an unexpected issue after just 3 short weeks. The screen failed completely I could here the phone ring I could call upon siri but the screen just stayed black. It took almost 2 full hours to have the phone replaced. It took the technician 3 phone calls and much time on the computer to sort out the problem with replacing my 3 week old iphone. I do still love the phone and am grateful that the tech was patient and kind and able to replace the phone for me.

    I had been using Apple products for years, then had to switch to a track phone for a few years, out of necessity. iPhones are the easiest phones to use. It did not take long to remember and get back in the swing of using a Smartphone again. If your older, like me....I would definitely recommend an Apple product for whatever your needs.

    So, they always say the latest iPhone is the best one, and it's actually true. Yes, there is no dedicated headphone jack, but I really don't care and will gladly trade it for the water resistance of the iPhone 7 vs the 6/6s. The camera got a slight upgrade, and the Taptic feedback is cool. I also feel the Taptic Engine does a better job of notifications in my pocket than the old vibration motor did. The screen seems slightly more vibrant than before, too. Bottom line, this is the best iPhone until iPhone 8 comes out. At least, unless you want the larger screen and better camera of the 7 plus.

    Have had an ipad for a number of years and thought I knew everything about IOS. Found out a lot of new tips with the iphone and gradually liking it more everyday. Previously had Samsung smartphones. The phone is very straightforward,no gimmicks and easy to get to various items like mail, contacts, internet. Have issues with keyboards that seem to change depending on what you are doing like texting,email, searching. Also alerts for calendar events is and have been a problem for sometime. Overall, very good but not excellent nor am I completely comfortable with the iphone at this time.. .

    After reading the differences between this and the iPhone 8, I just couldn't justify paying $150 more to get the iPhone 8. Got it on sale for way less than my carrier was selling it for. The BestBuy rep was awesome! She had two phones up and running within a half hour. Sure it doesn't have a glass back or wireless charging and is half the storage of the base iPhone 8, but I don't live on my phone all day. It's a phone not my whole life. It was a really nice upgrade from a 5S. I just can't see the need for the calculator sized Plus models.

    My handmedown iPhone 5C was on its last legs, working worse and worse with each upgrade and not staying charged for more than 4hrs so I was forced to get a new phone. Tried to go to android but that transition was too problematic (kept getting 5000 contacts when checking my work gmail). The main reason I got the iPhone 7 was it did not download all 5000 contacts, it was on sale, and I was told it should be at least 3 years before it is phased out. Ridiculous that any phone should cost $600 and is considered so disposable. A phone is a phone, I just want it to work.

    The iPhone is wonderful, in general, but this one had issues so our carrier, Verizon, replaced it twice. The important thing to know is that even while still under the one year warranty, they replace the phone only with refurbished iPhones. In other words, the phone you have trouble with is replaced with one that someone else had trouble with that was hopefully fixed. We never got any of the refurbished ones to function perfectly and ended up just buying a new one again.
