    Great Phone

    Posted
    Steve

    The iPhone 7 is a great phone for everyday tasks. The phone has a very solid build with a metal back and a matte black finish that doesn’t slip in your hand. The matte black also doesn’t show fingerprints like most shiny phones do. The front of the phone is a durable glass that does show fingerprints but cleans easily and is scratch resistant. The power and volume buttons are placed nicely on the sides where they are rarely accidentally pressed but can be easily pressed when needed. The overall size of the phone is great with it not being too large where you can’t access all of the screen with one hand but is still large enough to easily read any text and watch any videos. The iPhone 7 also has a new home button that doesn’t physically move like previous iPhone’s did. Having previously owned an iPhone 6 the button is very different on this new phone but is very easy to get used to. The amount of haptic feedback is adjustable so you can make it feel exactly how you want. After just a few hours with the phone the new home button seemed just as natural as the previous home button. Included in this home button is a fingerprint scanner that is much faster than the scanner in the previous phones. Although the iPhone 7 was the first iPhone without a headphone jack, it isn’t a large issue for day to day use. There are many Bluetooth headphone options that allow you to listen to music or other media while also charging your phone. Since the phone doesn’t have an audio jack there is another speaker on the bottom that makes the speaker quality much better and louder than previous iPhones. The front and rear facing cameras on the phone are both very good for their respective tasks. For those looking for a more professional photograph the iPhone 7 plus may be the better option. For the everyday user that isn’t serious into photography they both take very good pictures. Overall the iPhone is a great improvement from previous generations of iPhones. The overall build quality and design make it a very good looking and durable phone. This phone is great for those who use their phones for everyday communications, playing games, and just about every other task a smart phone can do.

    Few things to be aware of.....

    Generally this phone is good, depends what you want/need I think. I upgraded from Iphone 4 so pretty big jump. Best Buy sales associate very good transferring my data from old phone. It took awhile but she knew what she was doing and the store wasn't busy the day I was there. When I got home the phone would not go to sleep. I tried without the case, it still reactivated whenever I put the phone over to my bag or even when I moved with the phone. It would power down but it was the sleep mode that didn't work. I googled for info and seems others have had the same problem. I tried going back to Best Buy in case the phone was faulty but they didn't know what the problem was and couldn't fix it. I eventually contacted Apple support chatline and they first did a diagnostics to confirm my phone was ok and had no problems. Then they tried a few things in settings like changing Autolock to 3 secs/reboot etc and nothing worked UNTIL we deactivated Rise To Work....instant fix and I have had no further problems on the sleep mode, hurrah as my battery was draining before. I do get a few annoying messages to download stuff and telling me I am driving (when I am not) I think its my choice what and when I do it anyway so not happy with Apples interference. Early days yet but so far I've lost a few hours getting these things ironed out and no-one online I can see has fixed the sleep mode yet or reported how to solve the problem anyway.

    Great Product With Some Design Issues

    I was using an iPhone 5S and I was quite satisfied with it until its battery started to die very quickly. Instead of taking risk and replacing its battery on my own, I decided to go for an iPhone 7. No doubt, it's a perfect smartphone. However, when it comes to design, I have issues. In terms of design aesthetics, it's just perfect. I got the matte black one and I absolutely love the way it looks. Apple finally removed the ugly stripes behind the phone after iPhone 6 and 6S series and that was a great move for sure. Aesthetics aside, I think, ergonomically, iPhone 6 and 7 are not as good as iPhone 5, 5C, 5S and 5SE. iPhone 7 is slightly larger than iPhone 5 and it makes the screen unnecessarily harder to navigate. Your finger doesn't reach the top of the screen so you have to force it or double tap the home button to slide the screen down a bit. I think that's absolutely unnecessary and even weird. iPhone 7 Plus is OK. If you want that kind of a huge screen on your phone, that's OK, but the difference between iPhone 5 and iPhone 7 (and 6) screens is something I don't understand. And the feel in your hand... iPhone 5 feels quite solid. You grab it and automatically hold it securely. iPhone 7 has a huge risk of getting slipped from your hand, like 6 series (and even more). Good design is not 'beautiful' design. Good design is the design that works. I think Apple started to miss that part after Steve Jobs passed away. Other than that, great product.

    Phone is great--but Best Buy's policy is terrible!

    After 15 days of use on my iPhone 7, in the middle of a call, while simply sitting at my desk, the other party suddenly asked me "did you go outside?" Within another 2 minutes, I became completely unintelligible, though I could hear the party I was speaking to with 100% clarity. We ended the call and I called back, thinking it may have been a poor connection, with the same result. Changed locations to ensure it wasn't a bad cell tower, same result. Took the phone back to Best Buy, where the Geek Squad ascertained it was indeed a defective speaker. However, Best Buy/AT&T's policy is to only exchange phones for 14 days. As this was day 15, they wanted to send it out for service. I don't know of anyone who is willing to be without a phone for days on end. I called Apple from the Best Buy parking lot and the CSR was extremely helpful, getting me an immediate appointment at the Apple Store, even though they did not have any appointments at the store for another five days. Got to Apple and after waiting less than 5 minutes, Genius Bar rep was able to see me, run diagnostics on the phone, and swap it out. Lesson learned--I'll never buy another phone from the Best Buy Store again and will simply go straight to the Apple Store to save a lot of time and frustration.

    Returned Samsung Galaxy S8 for iPhone 7 - Happy!

    I don't like the direction that Samsung is heading with their flagship curved screen candy bar shaped phones. I have owned several recent Galaxy S phones, including the S8. None have come close to iPhone quality and reliability. If you want cheap and max flexibility, go with Android. If you want design excellence, better security, great support, incredible ecosystem w/super reliable interoperability, and stable apps, go with with Apple iPhone. Since switching to the iPhone, I have purchased a MacBook Pro. Now Windows 10 seems like a bad joke. Bottom line, Apple controls the hardware and base software, the others don't and it shows in the inconsistency of the experience (not great) between their products. Finally, a dedicated audio/aux port on the iPhone 7 would have been nice, but I am not a serial ear bud wearer and my Bose headphones have bluetooth, never been a issue for me. Also, iPhone battery life is unmatched, so not hunting for a plug/charger throughout the day. Life is good.

    It's an IPhone

    What can I possibly say in an IPhone review that is new under the sun. I'll keep it specific to my needs and maybe others who have similar needs in a phone will find this helpful. First off, for those comparing this to the now discounted 6s, the 7 is noticeably faster. That alone is worth the extra money. The size of the 7 (compared to the 7plus) hits the sweet spot for me. 4.7 inches is just right for fitting in pockets and having owned 'phablet' sized phones before, I can say that becomes a big deal if you work a physical job bending over or bumping into things all day. 32 gigs is fine for me. I don't store many videos, just pictures and music. I don't need every app ever made, just the basics. The camera is good enough, and as I use Apple's ecosystem the IPhone is the way to go. I wish it were more customizable like Android, but honestly tweaking a home screen until it's just right doesn't really add any usefulness to a phone. Can't go wrong!

    I finally came back to iPhone with this phone. After trying Android for a couple of years and always having trouble with batteries charging ports with all of their models I decided to come back to Apple. Yes, there's more freedom on Android to download third party apps and such but at this point I prefer reliability over functionality and honestly there's ways to do those things on iPhone but of course just takes a little more work and a little more "know how". Battery life is great, I haven't had issues with charging as I did with several Android models so I'm definitely happy with this and I don't miss my other phones one bit. I basically have the same functionality now and it much more reliable. Exactly what I needed.

    Decent phone for owners that are older than the 6s

    I bought this phone for my father in law. It's several steps up from his old 5! Really quick and the screen is very crisp. He was very excited (he's 83 years old), so the main thing was to make him happy. When goiig over the phone with him, I too was curious about the difference between this one and the iPhone 6s (the one that I have). There is little difference in screen resolution, and a slight difference when it comes to opening apps. When taking pictures there too was little difference between the 6s and 7. When my wife joined the party with her iPhone 6, and we started comparing images, the 6s and 7 won out. Overall if I have something older than a 6s I would definitely get the 7..it would be highly recommended. But, to me, there was very little difference between the 6s and 7 for me to make the upgrade. So for those who have a 6s, you may want to examine one at Best Buy before investing your hard earned cash.

    Awesome Iphone but battery runs down kinda fast

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I love my new IPhone so far, not much changes from my IPhone 6 except for the kinda touch home button no head phone jack. As far as features seems to go its pretty much the same as the IPhone 6. Those of you complaining about NO HEAD PHONE JACK, there is a charge cable right behind the ear buds with a head phone jack on one side that you can plug your head phones into, one end goes into the phone an other end you plug in your head phones. Also the battery seems to run down kinda fast if your using it a lot. It would be nice if Apple could make the battery last longer so it doesn't run down fast. Iike on most all smart phones the issue is always seems to be the battery running down to quickly. So other than the battery issues the phone it self seems to be pretty good. I don't know if its actually waterproof or water resistant or not put I wouldn't purposely put it some water an test it out. Well I am pretty happy with this IPhone 7.

    Upgraded to 7 from 5s. I wasn't sure at first if I wanted to get a bigger phone because I don't like the feeling of carrying a big phone in my pocket. I thought about the SE as well but at the end the price got me. The 7 was on sale and cheaper or the same price (don't remember) than the SE because of a holiday sale. So I went with the newest phone, the 7. It does what every other Apple product does. Works flawlessly. It is fast as well. Love everything about it. The one thing I kinda don't like is that it doesn't have the aux headphones jack. But I can live without it. But annoying that I can't listen to music and charge the phone at the same time. If you really need to get a new phone, get this one. If it's on sale. If i had not gotten it on sale I would have gotten the SE or easier for the 8 ( or 7s- I heard one might come out?)

    I purchased this iPhone 7 to replace my Samsung Galaxy SIII, which needed to be recharged every day, even with a new battery. The iPhone is about the same size as the Samsung, but it is noticeably lighter. It was very easy to learn to use this iPhone, although I miss the Go Back One Screen button on the Samsung. On the other hand, I can now go three days between battery charges. The iPhone also seems to fetch my emails a lot quicker than the Samsung. The fingerprint log-on is nice, although I still haven't figured out when I can use it and when I have to enter my pin number Over all, a step up, and I am happy with it..

    The Good Improved front and rear cameras -- now with optical image stabilization -- deliver much improved photos, especially in low light. Water resistant. A faster processor, plus slightly better battery life. More onboard storage than last year's models for the same price. The Bad No headphone jack (but there's a dongle and compatible wired headphones in the box). Click-free home button takes getting used to. Only the larger 7 Plus has the cool dual camera. Shiny jet-black version scratches easily. The Bottom Line The iPhone 7's notable camera, battery and water resistance improvements are worthwhile upgrades to a familiar phone design. But ask yourself if you really need an upgrade... and if the Plus might be a better choice.

    It was finally time to replace my wife's old iPhone 5 and we went looking for a suitable replacement. We were hoping for the SE model as it had been the same size as her old phone (which she liked). No luck... the SE is no longer available. The iPhone 7 was the closest we could get. She is getting used to the larger size and says that it is a little easier to text with. This was the least expensive replacement available at Best Buy. I think they had it tucked away in the back somewhere. Thanks to the sales associate who knew where to find it.

    I had an old flip phone before I bought this Apple phone and had no problems making calls on it. I bought this Apple I phone 7 and can't call anyone on it!!!!!!!! No one can hear me!! I can hear them, but no one an hear me!! I hate it and wish I had my old flip phone back!! It's not Best Buys fault; however, when I tried to return it and explained my problem, the salesman told me I had to go to an Apple store to return it. The closest one is an hour and a half away! It's an expensive phone and I can't even make a call on it!! I can text on it just fine, but not talk on it!! Have to suffer until I can get to the Apple store. My advice is Apple....thumbs down!!!!!!

    I traded in my white iPhone 6 for rose gold iPhone 7 only because that was all they had left in the store. You know what, I'm glad I did! I love the pink color after all. Definite improvement with the camera. My initial hesitation was the fact that it didn't have a headphone jack. When I go to the gym I like to watch the news when I'm on the elliptical machine or treadmill. That means I don't wear wireless headphones since my headphones need to connect to the fitness equipment. Using the headphone jack attachment just took getting used to. To make it easier for me I purchased 2 extra attachments in case I lost the one that came with the phone. They are under $10 (keeping one at home and one in the car).

    Great phone! Not many differences from the 6 that I used to have but definitely an improvement. I was a bit hesistant at first because of the lack of the headphone jack, but I haven't really encountered any issues with it. Mainly because I use my usb cable in my car to play music and not an aux cord. It runs really fast and the camera takes amazing pictures! I still have yet to test out whether or not it's really waterproof, but that's not something I want to directly test, mainly if it were to happen on accident.

    I had to upgrade. I had an iPhone 5s. It worked perfectly. Nothing wrong with it at all. My speed was slowing down, & I needed to get with a faster processing model. I went for the 8. I thought, “this will be great. I can use the same power cords & chargers. Plus all my accessories will be compatible.” Wrong You have to plug the ear bud adapter into the only port (power). Plus the on/off switch is on the side, which I’m still not use to. And every time you squeeze the other side to power off, the volume goes up or down. I’m not a fan I’m taking this phone back & trying an 8

    This is to counter the other trolls or haters. Of course, there's no such perfect phone and new model is better than old model. For the speed, this one has a big jump compared to previous models! Battery lasts longer, phone is same size but lighter, screen is same resolutions but more colorful,.... those are welcome new features but one feature I like the most is there's dual speakers now and the speakers are now louder! As for the headphone jack, this will be the trend in the future! I don't care about this since I (like most other people) use blu tooth headset nowadays.

    This was a purchase for my daughter and her first phone. I wanted her to be able to FaceTime all friends and family like she does on her iPad. So, this was an easy purchase. My wife and oldest daughter have the iPhone 6, I had the 6 until a pool accident in Vegas. I have the 6S Plus and Apple products are great. They are behind on RAM, wireless charging and other items... but the ease of use with iPhone in great. Best phone ever? I think so, and it was worth it to see my daughters face.

    First time buying a iPhone through Bestbuy. I wanted to take advantage of the turning in your old iPhone for full credit of the phone before 10/01/16. My Bestbuy sells person gave me 2 options: 24 or 30 months payments. I was happy w the information that sells person gave me. When I received my new iPhone I went to the local AT&T store to return iPhone for credit. The rep at the AT&T store gave me conflicting information than what bestbuy gave me. So I was a little miffed at bestbuy for giving the wrong info. It turned out AT&T gave me the wrong info and bestbuy knew what she was talking about. Thanks Bestbuy
