    It's another iPhone

    Posted

    I had almost every iPhone to date (I skipped the 6 and opted for the 6 Plus, and skipped the 6S for the 6S Plus) and I am used to the iOS ecosystem. On the hardware side of things this is the fastest iPhone you can buy, but, it isn't too much faster than the iPhone 6S Plus and if you are a 6S Plus owner I do not recommend upgrading to this iPhone. If you use the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus or prior I do recommend upgrading. The dual camera is a nifty idea but I tend to never use it and I highly doubt majority of people will use it, the image still gets blurry when using the 2x camera (less than zooming in but still blurry). The "normal or 1x" camera seems to be on par if not a tinch better than the iPhone 6S camera. The water resistant IP67 certification is a great plus to the iPhone 7 and 7 plus range but I tend to not get my phone wet regardless, if you are the type of person who has liquid damaged a phone in the past than this is great if not I doubt you'll even notice and treat this iPhone as if it were not water resistant. The removal of the headphone jack (as controversial as this is) is not that big of a deal to me. I do listen to music a lot on my phone but the included adapter gives you a headphone port that you can use and I have moved on to bluetooth headphones. The adapter provides you with the same audio quality as you would get on a iPhone 6S Plus via the 3.5mm headphone jack. To address why I do not think this is a big deal. Apple is still an innovative company. When you look back about 8-9 years Apple were the first ones to make computer without cd drives and removal batteries, then they made laptops that you couldn't really upgrade and now days almost every computer on the market is like that and every company and followed Apples lead. I believe the headphone port is another example of this. The home button is now a piece of glass that does not move.... As weird as this sounds Apple uses the force touch/haptic feedback (basically a vibration feedback) to give you the sense of you pressing something when you're really not and I can for one say that this works 100% perfectly fine. I can not even tell that I am not pressing something down and find this truly amazing. The thought of this may seem weird to you at first but it is honestly great and I love having this home button. Now on to the dual speakers. The iPhone 7 Plus uses the ear piece (where you commonly use to listen to someone while on a phone call) as a secondary speaker. The iPhone does seem a bit louder but this isn't really a big deal, I'm sure if you're fine with the speakers you will barely notice any change besides the difference in volume. The battery life on the iPhone is the same as it always has been in the past, depending on the type of user you are you might find the iPhone has great battery life or horrible battery life. I use my phone constantly and find that I can get from 7AM to 3PM before needing a quick recharge. Lastly the screen on the iPhone seems sharper than previous generations. Apple has touted they have changed the color gamut and how they've allowed the screen to be brighter and produce more colors and this is true, I have notice a difference between the iPhone 6S Plus and the iPhone 7 Plus. Like I mentioned before if you have a iPhone SE, iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus don't upgrade if you have something older than this would be a great upgrade.

    Ok so after years of being a faithful Samsung customer I decided to give the IPhone another try. I've had several iPhones in the past - the original, the 3S (which due to an unfortunate toilet incident only worked for a month, and the 4S. I've also had every Samsung note phone except for the first one. I originally wanted to get the Samsung note 7 but because I did not want my house or car burning down I had to rethink my options. I was reluctant at first to come back to the iPhone, but I am so glad i did. A few of the pros are: excellent camera, even in low light settings. I frequently find my daughter sleeping in weird positions (sideways with stuffed toys on her head, etc) with my note 5 I had to use the flash to take pics but with this phone I do not need to and the pictures still come out clear (I'm uploading a picture that I took of her taken without a flash)The battery also lasts about twice as long as my note 5. Those are the two major issues that put this phone above Samsung. The cons: it is harder to use with one hand and I have to get use to the keyboard not having the numbers above the letters. A minor thing is Samsung does offer a little bit more in the way of customizing the home screen and such. Overall I would have to say to anyone in the fence between the iPhone 7 and an android phone - get this phone you will not regret it

    This phone is stellar. Pros: -It's waterproof (up to 3 ft submerged for up to 30 minutes), and the large screen is wonderful. -The fingerprint scanner is quick and accurate, and because of that I actually use it. -The battery life on the plus model is really good too. I disabled a couple power wasting features, and I get 2 days of regular use on a charge. -The camera's portrait mode is a really cool feature as well. Cons: -The phone is really big (but thin), and it makes keeping it in your pocket not too comfortable. I almost always take it out when I'm sitting down. -There is no headphone jack. This was a problem for me once trying to play some music at a party, but other than that it's not a problem for me. I have bluetooth headphones already, or I could use the provided pari of lightning headphones, which work fine. overall: great phone. I have other apple devices so our ecosystem just works great.

    This is a wonderful upgrade from my Samsung 5. I really like Samsung phones and wasn't necessarily looking to switch to the latest IPhone or Samsung, but had to because the screen was cracked. I also purchased this phone to use with the Square credit card processing system. So far, I haven't been disappointed. It has many of the same functions that I enjoyed about my old phone, but it's a cleaner, clearer functioning system. I find I use more of the features it offers and have downloaded more apps etc. I loved the camera on my Samsung, and hoped that it would be as good, and I think it might be better. The only issue I have found with it, and it might be the program, is when I'm using Instagram the screen doesn't seem to be as sensitive to touch. I think it should be as good as the earlier generations. I'll be interested to see if anything changes with the program updates.

    Recently upgraded iPhone7 Plus online ($250 trade-in offer). Picked-up my phone from bestbuy mobile location. Representative said you can trade-in here or go to att store and they'll give you the $250 credit towards monthly bill. I preferred to go to att store and they told me thet do not have trade-in offer to match bestbuy. I went back to near by bestbuy and they couldn't find my upgrade on their trade-in program. Again they asked me to go to the store from where i received this phone (just because they don't know what to say). I also went to the mobile store in galleria mall. They also did try for few mins and said sorry we can't find the details online. I said i have the bill with me and this is the phone which i've upgraded. This is one of the worst experience I've so far. Very poor response from the blue color staff.

    I bought this phone for a couple of reasons; Reason #1: Apple does this super great thing where they seem to kick you out of their software if you use an outdated phone, and my poor iPhone 5 just couldn’t hang anymore. Reason #2: I was torn between getting a quality camera, or getting a phone that had a good camera on it. I obviously chose the phone. I’ve put so much money into Apple products over the years, I’ll probably always be an Apple girl. It’s a quality phone. The display is beautiful, the speakers are loud, the camera is gorgeous (the dual lenses really sold me on this one) and it wasn’t too hard to get used to the size. Apple is just overpriced. And, to be honest, the lack of aux hook up is kind of annoying.

    Far behind android. Can't charge and use head sets simultaneously. No wireless charging option like the galaxy. Still can't customize screens and text messages like android. Home and lock screen is in 2D. Not vivid like android. Folder option/arrangement is annoying. Doesn't even alphabetize your apps. Live wallpaper capability is sub par compared to android. Nighttime pics not great. Bluetooth connection with non apple watches does not synch when near other apple devices. Must turn off Bluetooth on other apple devices before hand. Considering on how restricted the phone is when customizing, the battery should last twice as long as let say the galaxy. Having to use a computer for converting a song or audio recording into a ringtone through iTunes is rediculous. This phone is not user friendly, only Apple friendly. Huge regret.

    I finally upgraded to a new iPhone and I'm very glad that I did. I had the iPhone 5s and was satisfied until recently when my battery started dying much more quickly after I started using some new apps and I ran out of storage. So, I decided it was time to upgrade to a new phone. I struggled picking between the 7 and 7+ but, I made the right decision going with the plus. The bigger screen was awkward at first, after using the 5s, but it awesome now! I can see everything so clearly! The battery last very long even while using bluetooth and the camera. Plus, the camera is amazing on this phone! Overall, the phone is fast, the battery life is great, and the screen is perfect!

    I purchased 2 iphone7plus phones with understanding data, apps and phones would be operational. There was to be no plan changes etc. Took the phones home and found did not message, email. I took the phones back to Bestbuy who did not know what to do but found an Apple rep who worked on them and fixed that portion. Then we began to use phones, received message from ATT we had exceeded our plans and charged overages on BOTH PHONES. ATT said a new Plan had not been set up correctly by Apple agent and by BestBuy:THE WIFI had not been activated-turned on be the techs. Took 3 phone calls and nearly 3 hours with ATT to correct the errors and billing. Was I unhappy? Yes indeed.

    I had an iPhone 4s and figured it was time. So I looked at reviews of the 6s plus vs the 7 plus and clearly the 7 was a better device. After using it for a few weeks, I have to say I've found no flaws. The hissing that folks complain about isn't there. The excessive heat isn't there. Battery life lasts me about three days on a charge. I thought the lack of an earphone jack wouldn't be an issue and indeed it's not. The lte speeds are faster than my regular broadband is and the wifi callling and hd voice makes calls clear. I immediately put this into an otterbox commuter case and couldn't be happier...until the iPhone 8 comes out in September 2017 heh.

    I was alittle against the fence when I went to purchase the IPhone didn't know if I wanted the 7 or 7 plus so I actually started having the 7 processed for activation mid way in with my in decisiveness I changed my mind I wanted some sort of change I had already had a 6 (same size as the 7) and the only reason I didn't want the 7 plus was because I thought it was way to big well I was wrong it grew into my hand or something because I love it the camera is great and it is so much faster as far as internet and downloads the sales man was so helpful I'm happy I made this decision I love my 7 plus for watching movies the screen is perfect!!!!!!

    Coming from an IPhone 6 Plus, I notice several problems. Battery life isn't all that great with the 7. I had to turn off so many settings. Bluetooth takes longer to connect especially with my car. After the 7 has connected to my car, the music would speed up for a few seconds, then a pause, then the music will play normally. This happens every time. Don't really have privacy unless you go to your settings and turn options off (check the location service menu). The only thing that keeps me buying the iPhone is the group text and FaceTime since the rest of my family are apple users. It's more 3.5 stars.

    Much better than iPhone 6

    Appearance-wise, my new iPhone 7 Plus hasn't changed much from my 6. It is more sturdier and stronger than the 6 (which was prone to bending) thanks to its use of Series 7000 aluminium, it is water resistant and able to survive for 30 minutes fully submersed, and the home button is now fixed (disguised through clever use of haptic feedback) which removes a notorious point of failure. The 7 is also no doubt much faster with the newer Apple A10 Fusion: Quad Core CPU, Six Core GPU, 2GB RAM and now starts at 32gb instead of 16gb - which are the main reasons from my upgrade

    After my husband cracked the screen on yet another iPhone. He chose upgrade instead of repair. The difference between the cameras on my 6Plus and his 7Plus is miraculous. I'm usually the photographer in our house but his quality is definitely a huge step up from mine so he has taken over that position! Im asked often why I chose Apple. I have had Apple products since the age of 3 when my dad purcsed our first "computer" and I've never looked back. The security is amazing and if. E utmost importance. Great job Apple can't see what you come out with next!

    Like the bigger phone, when you want to look up things. The Apple watch is a great pair because you can't always carry your phone with you or a woman that doesn't usually wear a belt has the phone hooked to their hip. You can add a nice band and side guard and this Apple watch covers you on getting calls, messages and much more. Glad I got both at the same time, only thing is I wish I would of got the new 2017 watch, for it is one you can take in the water, the excerise app is great for dry land but if you swim laps in a pool you will need the 2017 watch.

    This phone is great now...but like all iPhones, it will get crappier and crappier and slower and slower with each upgrade. Plus, in 8 months I'll have to make sure and charge it every night since the battery won't last. By the 12th month, I'll be charging it multiple times a day. Then in two years when another new iPhone is released, mine will stop working and I'll be forced to spend another $1,000 on a new one. I miss my old Nokia.

    Nice camera but lower battery life

    Upgrading from 6+ the additional features didn't seem like it was a lot. But that's ok. I think phones are maturing and one will just get disappointed if one expects a lot of features every phone upgrade. The new 7 + is a familiar phone with a nicer upgraded camera. My photos look more professional and sharp. The Touch ID is improved and one feature I love to use. One improvement that I'd like to see is better battery life. The 7+ seems not to last as long as my old 6+. Perhaps feature software upgrades will improve battery life.

    I feel the 7+ has really nice cameras. I personally don't like the size, it won't fit in my sports cars and it's hard to handle on the go. I much preder the smaller 7, but the camera on the plus is great to have. Nowadays everyone just use the phone for social media pics and videos so it's an important element of the phone. I am having problems with my charging port, it's intermittent after 2 months of use. Had iPhone for s long time and it's the first time this happened. I will need to get it looked at by apple, very annoying

    With the release of the iPhone 8, 8+, and X, the iPhone 7 line is really at a good place in the value department. The 7 line is fairly well discounted now and is still a solid phone. The screen, camera, and processing power is still excellent and while the design is getting a bit dated, it's indistinquishable from the 8 line. Unless wireless charging is a big deal for you, I would recommend looking at this phone before paying the premium for the 8+.

    I am still figuring out all of the features (have to check user guide on some things I don’t understand). There’s a lot more to an iPhone than I thought, but the only downside is that with Apple, you have to pay for a lot of the apps and music you want. I had an app on my android that was free, now I have to pay for it if I want it. Also I forgot, you can’t use an SD card, and that’s where my pictures and music would go. Other than that I love it!!!
