The device is stunning. Expensive, yes - but stunning
It's that time of the year again. after the relatively lacklustre 6s models, the iPhone 7 is now a real return to form for Apple, with genuine user benefits in terms of speakers, imaging, durability and battery life.The iPhone 7 equipped with a quad core A10 Fusion, with two high speed 2.3GHz cores and 2 less power 1GHz cores, backed up by 2GB of RAM. The upshot, given the relatively low 750p screen, is very fast operation when needed and terrific battery life the rest of the time.One other main change compared to previous iPhones is worth noting and it's to do with iOS 10. The slide-to-unlock is gone, instead you just have to apply pressure to the home button and you're done, the fingerprint recognition being so quick. For other lockscreen actions, swipe the whole thing right to see widgets and shortcuts, or left to gain access to Camera. It's very well done indeed.The iPhone 7 has 12MP camera now, has a f/1.8 aperture too (c.f. f/2.2 on the 6s) - Now the camera letting in 50% more light to exposure times that can be longer. So, You can take better photos in low lights. The addition of OIS to the camera in the iPhone 7 is much more than a spec bump - it takes imaging into a whole new league by letting iPhone users shoot low light shots with confidence, knowing that the shutter can be open for much longer and that the final photo will have less noise and better colours. The front facing camera is now 7MP, up from 5MP and is more than sufficient for selfie lovers, with the same full-screen LCD flash that's a beautiful idea and so effective.Then there's the stereo speakers for the first time in iPhone. As with OIS in the camera, this is something of a great feature to many handsets in the Android world, but it's brand new to the iPhone and will make a huge difference when playing music and watching media like YouTube, Netflix, and so on. An another real innovation then is the brave and infamous decision to axe the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, with Apple mainly quoting reasons of space and difficulty of waterproofing. These are both valid, though the company's ultimate aim is to have everything be wireless. In fairness, there's a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter included as well, so that you can simply plug in the quality headphones of your choice when the time comes. Many people will simply leave the Apple adapter on the end of headphones, and thankfully Apple's only charging around $10 or local equivalent for extra adapters, so it's not a big issue to just grab a few of these and leave them on headsets or other convenient places in your life, for as and when needed.
