Apple iPhone 7 Plus review: A solid contender for best smartphone in the world
Posted On July 2, 2021
With a 5.5 inch screen, a 6.5mm-thick bezel and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, the Apple iPhone is one of the most powerful handsets to hit the market in a while.
The Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were also a solid performer in our tests, and while the iPhone 7 was the best smartphone for us to use, it wasn’t without its fair share of faults.
Apple has always had a reputation for being hard to get hold of, but we’d be surprised if we didn’t see a lot of iPhone 7 buyers on the road to the holiday shopping season.
If you can find one in your area, don’t be afraid to try the iPhone in the field or at home, as Apple has some great accessories available.
In this iPhone 7 review, we’re going to take a look at the performance of the Apple iPhones in terms of battery life, video playback and sound.
If you’re not into tech and don’t need to use a lot, you can skip this review.
For the iPhone, we took the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, paired them up and tested them in our indoor testing lab.
We also used a variety of cameras to take video and record audio, which you can check out below.
While most of the phones are identical in terms in the performance, there are some notable differences.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus use an A8 chip, which has been a standard since the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5.
This chip was first introduced in the iPhone 3GS and has since been the standard for most smartphones.
In addition to that, Apple has changed the internals of the iPhones so they are lighter and lighter-weight, which is great for those of us who prefer to wear a lot less.
The 7 Plus, meanwhile, has a bigger bezel.
This is actually a bit of a disappointment, as we had hoped the iPhone would be bigger, but it’s a good sign nonetheless.
If it’s not a disappointment for you, then it’s also not for us.
While we were not expecting to be able to use the iPhone with the same amount of power as before, it was a welcome change from the last two iPhones, as it means we don’t have to worry about overheating.
We tested the iPhone as far back as the iPhone 8, so it should have no issues in that regard.
There are some other small tweaks that could improve the iPhone’s battery life.
If, for example, you want to use it with a higher resolution camera or a faster processor, we’d recommend using a larger display and a smaller battery.
In our tests we found that, on average, the iPhone does manage to stay within a few hours of full charge, but this is probably due to the extra processing and processing power that the Apple processors get from the A8 chipset.
This means that you can expect the battery to last for up to seven days, but you’ll have to be careful not to overheat it.
This is a pretty standard iPhone 7 design, and although the back of the iPhone can be easily covered with the screen, the front is very hard to see.
The iPhone 7 also comes with an additional SIM card slot, which can make things a bit easier if you have a small number of people in your house.
The phone does come with a fingerprint scanner, though it’s nowhere near as good as the one on the iPhone X, which we found to be pretty solid.
The screen is very good, but not the best of the 7 Plus models.
It’s actually pretty good, though, and the audio quality is good.
If that’s not enough to make you jump off your chair, then we have a good word for you: the audio is quite good.
The 7 Plus is also quite large, which will make it a little easier to hold in your hands, but the camera is still on par with the iPhone.
As for battery life and sound quality, the 7 Pros are by far the best performing phones.
Both phones have a 5 hour battery life rating, but neither is as good a performer as the 6s or 6s plus.
The A8 is the only chip Apple uses in the 7 lineup, so there’s no way to compare the iPhone or the 7s Pros to the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, but if you’re looking for the best performance for your money, the A9 is definitely a better choice.
If there’s one thing that we’re not sure about, it’s the sound quality.
The phones don’t share much in common with each other, but what’s clear is that the iPhone is the better performer when it comes to sound quality and battery life than the 7.
The 8, however, is a much better performer in many areas.
It has a larger bezel, better speakers and an even bigger battery
