    My 1st iPhone

    Well, I succumbed to the hype and bought my first iPhone, the iPhone 7, after having Samsung phones for many years. I like some of the features better, and others not so much. I think it's going to take me a while to get used to the differences. I liked my text and calendar apps on the Samsung much, much better, and it's been a stumble trying to get into the mindset on how these apps work. There are some cool features I like better ...the flashing light notification works amazing and I don't miss a call when the ringer is turned off. I have a clear case and it's a pretty bright flashing light. So, my phone won't wake the baby, so to speak. The screen is smaller than my old Samsung Galaxy S5, but it's not been a problem to adjust to that. Yet, having a shorter battery life has been really noticeable. I wish the battery lasted longer, and I now carry a charger everywhere I go ...especially in my car. I'm used to the iPad, so most of the workings are familiar. I'll give it a good 3 years and then see if I want to go back to the Android world. Time will tell.

    Best phone I have ever owned. After carrying a 5S for almost 5 years it finally went haywire. I looked at the 6, 8 and wasn’t about to spend the $ for the X. I’m not one to get a new phone just because there is a new model out. Read reviews and settled on the 7. The 7 was very little more$ than the 6, the 8 just didn’t really have that much more to offer than the 7 but was much more expensive. It’s so fast. Hit the power button and phone is ready to use in seconds. I can’t believe the call clarity. If I had known there was so much difference I would have bought this phone earlier. Screen not too big and much better resolution. Very pleased. Will last me for years to come.

    My new Iphone 7

    My trusty I-Phone 6 needed a new battery. I bought a new battery & decided I could change it myself along with the kit & instructions that came with it. No problem until I tried to remove the old battery which had been GLUED in. My pry gadget slipped and perforated the battery which caught fire and the phone became toast. Went to Best Buy mobile store where they determined that I-7 would be the same cost and replacing my old I-6. I did it and love the new phone. Many more updates and the battery seems stronger. Very pleased with the assistance and guidance of the store manager. He was very polite and concerned I do the right thing. I even purchased an extended warranty which is something I never do. My old phone had 4 screen replaced, so I figured it was worth the cost.

    I've been anti iPhone for a very long time. Never bought one, tried friends' and families' but never got the appeal. I've had a Galaxy phone for as long as I remember until the day came last month where it finally died on me. First instinct was to get this years galaxy (I've had the 4 for years) however the recent problems of them catching fire was a negative. Best Buy also had a $100 gift card offer if you bought the new iPhone(I need new headphones) so I broke down and got it after messing around with it for an hour. A month later I love this phone, it's fast and easy to use, cameras dope, FaceTime, all that and I'm still discovering new features with it. I could list them all but this review is long enough. Try to see if it's for you, you might be surprised.

    Awesome Phone - worth upgrading!

    If anyone is interested to know how the 7 performs compared to the 6 and 6s Camera is a little better and you notice it for sure. It is a lot better in low lights conditions. SPEED, I was using a 6s and I notice a much snappier Safari and iMessage screens. Part of it may be IOS 10 but pages pop really fast. It is way way faster than the original 6. Black looks awesome!!! But is is so slick. There are no lines and it looks like a solid 1 piece product. I saw the Glossy Jet Black and it is a work of art but it show fine scratches. So most people will use a case which hides the back anyway so maybe color is not that important. Mainly if you want a white front or black. I love the new home button, took about 5 minutes to get use to and I don't miss the old home button at all.

    Iphone7 upgrade from 5s

    Recently upgraded 2 iPhone 5s models. This is our 3rd iPhone that we have upgraded about every 2 years since our first smart phones which were Android based OS. Again, another excellent Apple Smart Phone. Most likely will upgrade with another iPhone when the time comes. Very nice product. The home button is different, easy user transition from 5s. I like the larger phone size. Fits nicely in front pants pockets too. Camera is another upgrade that I like. The isn't a revolutionary new hardware product, but I think the smart phone market is now mature, so don't really expect that. Evolutionary design cycle is my expectation now for all smart phone mfgs. The "magic" now will be in the software or OS & Apple is the clear leader for me. Buy with confidence. Highly recommended.

    Prefer it to the iPhone 8; great phone!

    I was switching back to iPhone from Android and was trying to decide between the 7 and the 8. I compared both side by side and see very little difference; the camera on the 7 actually looked better at least on the few test shots I did in store. Performance was identical on opening apps and web pages. By spec the 8 is about 20% faster but I couldn't see it. The other thing the 8 has is wireless charging which for me is a non-issue. Other than that they're the same phone and with this promotion for $399, it was an awesome deal. I've had the phone a little over a week now and love it. Great battery life, very fast, easy to set up, great audio quality. And an awesome deal!

    My wife's Galaxy Note was getting long in the tooth. Almost every member of our family (including myself) and relatives had made the switch to iPhones recently and my wife wanted one too. She could care less about specs and modding, she just wants a phone and to access social media, texts and browser. She ABOSOLUTELY LOVES the fact that now the grandkids facetime her nearly everyday on their mom's phone. That alone made the switch for her worth its weight in gold! (She got the Rose Gold...) Plus we have Mac's, iPads, Wathes and Apple TV so if she wanted to "properly" join the ecosystem she needed an iPhone.

    Iphone purchase at Best Buy

    I always buy my Iphones at Best Buy because they make it so easy. This last time buying the Iphone 7 was no different. They always help you save money and get trade in values by trading in your older phone. Plus, you get reward points after a few weeks so that you can go back and get more free stuff! The iPhone 7 Plus is awesome. The camera was the biggest draw to me. I can take pictures of my family much better and much clearer. It has portrait mode which I just love. I've had it about 90 days and I'm still in love even though the iPhone 8 has come out and the X is just around the corner. My husband will be buying the X at the end of the month and we'll be using Best Buy.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    Perfect Size, Great Extras

    I just love this phone. It fits in my hand while the larger size does not. The phone quality is fantastic, and there are some very nice extras. Earlier this year, a necklace broke and a strand of tiny beads flew everywhere onto carpet that matched the bead color. I used the phone's flashlight to spot the beads and was able to find about a hundred of them. Since it was a vintage necklace, that was really important.

    Great Smartphone

    iPhone 7 is truly a great smartphone. I bought 4 of these last year and they are still going strong. Of course, having a good reliable service is a must for any smartphone to perform at its best. Verizon is the best, hands down. A little pricey, but well worth the money. Switched over from Sprint's horrible service (with unlimited LTE data, which is useless since we could never find Sprint service living in a major metro area!!). Anyway, I greatly recommend this device and service. I have a very happy wife and even more happy teenagers.

    I bought this phone for my mother-in-law during the Black Friday special, which was a great deal at $150 off. I did seem to have some trouble with the sim card that came with the phone. I happened to be at a Verizon store when I was activating the phone so they replaced the sim (free of charge) and the phone activated without any issues. Easy set-up and transfer of information from old Galaxy prepaid phone. My mother-in-law is thoroughly enjoying it thus far.
