iPhone 7 Plus review

 

A modest update, but one that does enough to still excite

Heaps of power for slick performance ; Excellent camera ; Solid battery life

Very expensive ; Screen still only full HD ; No headphone jack

It may not be the upgrade we were hoping for, but the iPhone 7 Plus is still an excellent phone with improved cameras, super slick performance and a handy waterproof, yet familiar design.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus review: Big changes from the big iPhone

 

Apple's latest smartphones are the culmination of many years of design, feature and component refinement. Each element of its devices are built and developed in unison with the rest. Of the two new iPhone 7 devices, the Plus certainly gets the most new...

Big screen size, great battery life and iOS 10 improvements, most powerful iPhone yet so great for gaming, water-resistance, updated Home button, dual camera fun

No headphone socket, dual camera depth effect imperfections, big and heavy - so won't be suitable for all, screen resolution behind the flagship curve, expensive

Of the two new iPhone 7 devices, the Plus certainly gets the most new features - making it the more worthy upgrade from either the iPhone 6 Plus or the iPhone 6S Plus.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Smartphone Review

 

The second one features better zooming. The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is showing off with two main cameras and a powerful processor. All of this is sitting inside a water and dust resistant case with two new colors. You also get stereo speakers, but the...

very sophisticated chassis ; protected against water and dust ; comprehensive sensor equipment ; many mobile frequencies ; intuitive software with useful apps ; high WLAN transfer rates ; good GPS accuracy ; very good cameras ; very precise control...

only 12 months warranty ; no 3.5 mm headphone jack ; NFC only for Apple Pay ; pretty expensive ; no microSD-slot ; voice quality not perfect ; noticeable warming ; speakers only average

The 9th generation of the iPhone also leaves a good impression and remains one of the best premium smartphones you can get. Still, you notice that the iPhone 7 Plus is an evolutionary update. The revolution is expected for next year, which will be the...

iPhone 7 Plus review: much more than a subtle redesign

 

Dual camera, more storage, and larger battery make this the ultimate iPhone

Great design and dual camera ; Improved battery ; Water resistance

It’s massive ; Iterative design ; Screen resolution

iPhone 7 Plus

 

The iPhone 7 Plus doesn't rock the boat with a revolutionary design, but it's a superb all-round phone with excellent battery life and a clever camera

Beautiful screen ; Unique camera ; Solid battery life ; Class-leading performance ; Potent speakers

Expensive ; No headphone jack ; Largely unchanged design

One of the reasons I’d always recommend a Plus version of the iPhone over the standard one is battery life.

Sharp, punchy picture ; Class-leading audio ; Solid build ; Fast performance ; Strong battery life ; Excellent cameras

Feels a little on the big side now ; Expensive ; No high-res audio

The Plus range has finally grown into its own – if you can handle the size, the 7 Plus is the iPhone to have

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

 

Absence of headphone jack aside, the 7 Plus is the best iPhone you can buy, with more memory than its smaller counterpart and dual cameras that peer toward Apple's future.

Dual cameras. Copious memory and storage. Water-resistant design. Faster on all performance measures, with better battery life, than last year's iPhones. iOS still leads on high-quality games and creative apps.

Lacks a 3.5mm jack, and there aren't a lot of Lightning-compatible headphones yet. Not all models are compatible with all carriers.

Comparisons and Conclusions There's a simple question this year: Are the iPhone 7's new features worth the headphone jack hassle? Especially right now, when there aren't many Lightning headphones available and Bluetooth devices are still divisive.

iPhone 7 Plus review

 

Several upgrades make this the best iPhone Apple has ever produced, and now it's available in a gorgeous shade of red in recognition of its partnership with (RED). Find out whether you should buy the iPhone 7 Plus in our review.

The iPhone 7 Plus is an excellent phone. It’s Apple’s best yet, but it is also Apple’s most expensive yet, with a huge starting price. In some respects, the upgrades seem to justify this, but at the same time some features are arguably only catching up...

Apple iPhone 7 Plus review

 

Phone cameras are getting really damn good.

Dual rear cameras delivers true 2x optical zoom, with a cool bokeh Portrait mode. Battery lasts longer than last year's model, and longer than iPhone 7. Water resistant. Fast. Bigger storage options include 256GB model for serious photographers.

There's no standard headphone jack: you'll have to use Lightning, or the included adapter, or go wireless. Design is showing its age, as competing phones squeeze a 5.5-inch screen into smaller, sexier bodies. And it's really expensive.

The iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras ever -- and it's a great phone, too.
