iPhone 7 review

 

We go long-term in our new iPhone test: is waterproofing enough of an upgrade?

Good low light camera ; Water resistant ; Double the internal capacity

Lacks clear upgrades ; Same design used for last three phones ; Battery life unimpressive

If you're going to buy a new iPhone, this is the one to get – there's a slightly longer battery life, a better camera, fast innards and protection against water. However, many of the changes are slight, and the iPhone 6S, for the lower price, suddenly...

iPhone 7

 

Features never before seen on an Apple phone, headphone controversy and a price hike... The iPhone 7 certainly hasn't slipped into the world with a whimper.

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Forget the headphone furore, the iPhone 7 is a slick update worth waiting for

No longer as allergic to water as a Mogwai ; A screen that isn’t defeated by bright sunshine ; Camera quality takes another step up

Battery life still needs work ; That Jet Black finish is a total fingerprint magnet ; Where's my headphone port?

The iPhone 7 is polished enough to feel new all over again, headphone port or not

IPHONE 7 256GB ROSE GOLD 4.7IN A10 IOS10

Apple iPhone 7 Review: In Depth

 

iPhone 7 Review: Apple's latest iPhone sports several improvements over the iPhone 6s, but is it worth an upgrade? Here's our Apple iPhone 7 review.

Water resistant ; Strong all-round camera ; Decent battery life ; Solid performance

No expandable storage ; No headphone jack

If you already own last year’s iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, there’s little reason to step up to the seven. Sure there’s a fair few improvements, such as the water resistant design and new better-in-low-light camera, but nothing that’ll blow your mind.

Apple iPhone 7 Review

 

We review the new iPhone 7, with updated 12mp camera, optical image stabilisation and raw shooting.

The iPhone 7 is an exquisitely built smartphone, with excellent build quality and design. The screen is clear with very good colour, and one of the most marketed features of the phone is the new camera. In this area, the iPhone 7 performs very well,...

iPhone 7 review: Another great iPhone, but still lags behind the very best

 

A collection of small improvements amounts to a decent upgrade for Apple's flagship smartphone but it isn't a major leap forward

Новые цвета корпуса, измененная кнопка Home, отказ от разъёма 3.5 мм, свежая iOS 10 и многое другое

К качеству передачи речи у меня не возникло никаких претензий, вы и ваш собеседник отлично друг друга слышите.

Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Review

 

Apple are back with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus but are there enough improvements to justify upgrading from their previous generation of smartphone?

Superb camera, especially on the iPhone 7 Plus ; Strong, responsive performance ; Cool new home button ; Some great new iOS 10 features ; The best-looking iPhone yet

Lack of radically new design may disappoint ; Headphone jack removal is controversial ; Smaller phone lacks second camera ; Better battery life still found elsewhere

Each year brings new products from Apple which catch up with rival products in some ways and overtake them in others. This year’s highlights include a considerably better camera experience, especially on the iPhone 7 Plus, useful water resistance...
