Apple iPhone 7 Plus - The Most Advanced iPhone Ever

Apple iPhone 7 Plus - The Most Advanced iPhone Ever
With smartphone size concerns becoming a thing of the past, Apple’s Plus model became an instant success when it first hit the market. Phablets might not be the most practical thing in the world in terms of size, but they vastly increase productivity and fun factor. Undisputable is the fact that watching movies and playing games is hugely more pleasing on a bigger screen, so it makes sense for companies to push for larger screens over time. There is a limit however of how big the screen can be before we sacrifice all portability. Those seeking middle ground can opt for Apple’s latest iPhone 7 Plus and its numerous improvements over the standard-sized iPhone 7.

Distinguishing iPhone 7 Plus from the previous generation of phones is a bit easier thanks to a dual camera setup. It’s the first and only iPhone model to feature two camera lenses that protrude slightly more than a single lens. Aside from the tiny camera adjustment, not much else has changed really. Apple’s latest generation of smartphones continues with the same design ethos as previous two generations with hardly any negative remarks from users. The rounded-out design is elegant, comfortable, and instantly recognizable in an utterly crowded smartphone market. Series 7000 aluminium provides iPhone 7 Plus with incredible structural rigidity in spite of 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm dimensions. A weight of 188 grams doesn’t feel cumbersome by modern smartphone standards, making prolonged use more enjoyable. There are two new colours in the mix; black and Jet Black. The normal black has a matte finish while Jet Black undergoes a remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodization and polishing to achieve mirror finish. Apple also added IP67 certification meaning you can dip your iPhone into shallow water for up to 30 minutes.

Looking at the spec sheet, one can come to the conclusion that Apple hasn’t done any work on the screen because it features the same 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution stretched over 5.5-inches. Instead of experimenting with a brand new panel, engineers at Apple decided to further improve the existing one by maximizing performance of each individual pixel. We were curious to see how much more the existing panel can give before being retired to history books. Nonetheless, improvement on the new screen can be seen when comparing last generation and this generation side-by-side. The main difference comes from a wider colour gamut producing more shades of the colour spectrum. Thanks to it, everything looks more realistic and accurate.

Powering the latest iPhone 7 Plus is a brand new A10 Fusion chip featuring four cores instead of the previously seen two. Apple has taken the same route as Qualcomm in that they have two less powerful cores handle tasks like emails and light internet browsing while the two more powerful cores take care of gaming and HD videos. By splitting the workload, they are able to deliver longer usage per charge as the more powerful cores aren’t always active. When implemented correctly, the system works brilliantly without any hiccups which is the case here. iPhone 7 Plus is two times faster than iPhone 6 while the increase over previous generation ranges anywhere from 30 to 40 percent. Multitasking is instantaneous thanks to new hardware and hefty 3GB of RAM. Controversy surrounding the elimination of headphone jack won’t be over anytime soon, however Apple has included an adapter making life slightly easier. It isn’t a perfect solution since you can’t plug in the charger and headphones at the same time without an expensive adapter, but it makes the transition a bit more bearable. Worth mentioning is the new home button that has been replaced by touch technology powered by Apple’s Taptic Engine. Adjusting to it might take a couple of presses, but the tactile response is brilliant.

The biggest change on this generation of iPhone Plus are the two camera sensors on the back. A 12-megapixel wide-angle lens is combined with a telephoto lens to make imaging more versatile than ever before. Instead of relying on digital zoom, users now have access to 2X optical zoom without any loss of quality. It doesn’t sound like much, but it makes an enormous difference to photography enthusiasts. Apple is also working hard on a depth-of-field effect via a new update in order to revolutionize portrait shots.
Thanks to a multitude of improvements, iPhone 7 Plus is one of the best phablets on the market. Iconic design combined with even more power than before results in an experience very few smartphones can match!
