Apple iPhone 7 Plus

1 / 15

 Over the years, the rumour mill has been getting faster and faster at churning out “purported information” about the iPhone that is yet to be released. Earlier, we would see rumours emerge about half way through the year, but now, rumours start almost the very day after the announcement of the newest iPhone. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were no different. Built around the new Apple A10 Fusion processor, the iPhone 7 Plus is the new 5.5 inch behemoth from Apple, sporting not just a faster CPU, but also a dual-camera setup with different focal lengths and a brand new screen capable of displaying a wider gamut of colours. We are very excited to have the flagship in our test-lab and you can read on further to see how it fared in our tests.

OUR VERDICT

The Apple iPhone 7Plus is blazing fast. There’s no exaggeration when it comes to the capabilities of the new processor and the new screen, though gorgeous, can be a little misleading. Implementing the DCI-P3 colour profile means that your photos will look different on different screens. The Dual Lenses are a boon for photographers, but just don’t expect much out of the Portrait mode. The battery life on the iPhone 7 Plus is amazing and those of you who rely on their phones to run their business (or lives) can really find some value for money in this piece of technology. If you’re coming from a previous generation iPhone, you obviously love the ecosystem and the iPhone 7 Plus will only help that love grow. If you’re an Android user, the iPhone 7 Plus may let you down in terms of usability, especially now that the Google has released its own flagships, the Google Pixel XL.
