Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus isn’t tremendously innovative, but it is rather good.

The good

  • New colour range
  • Water resistance works well
  • Taptic engine has possibilities
  • Good battery life
  • Exceptional dual camera

The bad

  • No headphone jack
  • It’s big
  • It’s expensive
  • Stereo audio is underwhelming
  • Slow to charge


If you believe the Apple hype, every new generation of iPhone is magical, wonderful and revolutionary. After around 10 generations (depending on how you count the iPhone SE), we’re not so sure that every single one of those words still applies, but there’s little doubting the general frenzy that surrounds a new iPhone launch. With the iPhone 7, Apple has applied some new techniques and technology to the iPhone line to bring it more into line with its Android competitors and, in some cases, leap over them.

The A10 Fusion chip that powers the iPhone 7 Plus is the biggest new improvement under the hood of the phone, alongside improved dual-camera optics exclusive to the larger iPhone. The iPhone 7 is broadly similar in specifications, save for only having the single wide 12MP camera at the rear (and the smaller screen, of course).

Design

  • The addition of water resistance and higher storage capacities are much appreciated
  • The loss of the headphone jack, however, is not

Camera

  • Adding a dual-lens camera greatly increases the capabilities of the iPhone 7 Plus
  • Automatic image configuration allows photographers of all skill levels to take high-quality shots

Performance

  • Top-of-the-line performance makes the iPhone 7 Plus the go-to choice for raw power
  • The two-tier design of the A10 Fusion processor allows for more power efficiency when performing simple tasks

Battery life

  • A bigger battery and a smarter processor give the iPhone 7 Plus significantly better battery life than any iPhone preceding it

Verdict

  • By incorporating long-awaited features like water resistance and a dual-lens camera, the iPhone 7 Plus reaffirms Apple's position at the forefront of the premium smartphone space
