The iPhone 7 is out with a bang, much to the excitement of the whole world. Apple users or not, the release of the new iPhone has been a topic of gossip for everyone. And why shouldn’t it? Being the statement release of the year from the smartphone giant, the phone did create quite a hype. So, mere months after its release, how is the iPhone 7 holding up? Here we discuss the honest review of the new iPhone to give you an elaborate view of what using this high-tech, the new phone actually feels like!
Let’s start with the major modifications. Apple, being the bold craftsman that it is, has removed the audio jack from its latest release. The new iPhone 7 only supports wireless audio. Also, having used the audio system, it’s evident that apple didn’t invest sufficient time in improving the quality of its wireless feedback. The audio pods, which are similar to iPhone’s standard earphones without the cord, don’t fit in the ear well. Plus, they don’t sound all that remarkable either.
Design and structure
Looking at the overall shape of the phone, the iPhone feels and looks just like an iPhone 6 in a case. There are no significant upgrades aside from a smoothening out of the camera and the colored antenna at the back. Aside from this, the new phones are water resistant but considering the price this isn’t worth paying such a large sum of money! In addition to this, the jet black models scratch quite easily which means extra care and extra caution all around.
Home button and speakers
The new home button of the iPhone 7 is designed to be completely solid with taptic engine jolt technology that recognizes pressure and gives a click like a feel rather than being an actual button. Although this technology works spectacularly on the newer MacBook new iPhone just don’t go that well with it. The entire bottom of the phone appears to vibrate instead of just a simple click. However, the taptic engine adds a number of other cool additions to the phone like gravity when the notification bar is pulled down. The new stereo speakers are also a considerable improvement, providing better audio with improved treble during calls and watching videos.
The new iPhone is loaded with the state of the art A10- Fusion chip. The chip adds lightning speed to the phone and also aids its battery performance. However, the apps need to be customized to the new capabilities of this chip, which is why we can’t spot the full potential of the phone yet. Furthermore, there are a number of services and extra capabilities that have not been incorporated in the phone at all. This puts gaps in the performance of the phone which can be quite unsettling for some users.
All in all, the new iPhone 7 are definitely a step towards the future, but there is a long way before that future is achieved. At the moment the new technologies are in the adaptation phase and the phone, itself is missing many parts. Honestly, even after all the advancements the phone still feels like an iPhone 6 with a larger home screen button. Yes, if you are into the apple game and like to live amid all the excitement, you should go to buy the phone. However, for those who wish to get a more wholesome experience it’s better to wait for the new innovations to settle down a bit. The iPhone 7 is a futuristic phone, but apple still has a long way to go to actually be able to pull it off.
