iPhone 7

 

iPhone 7 review: The iPhone 7 has arrived missing key features, but introducing some brand new ones. We'll cover everything from the headphone jack to the new camera and battery life in our full review of the iPhone 7.

Great screen and speakers ; Incredible performance ; Water resistant ; Excellent camera ; Clever Haptic engine

Poor battery life ; Looks the same ; Where's the headphone jack? ; Expensive

I’ve already mentioned that the iPhone 7’s battery life is a problem, and it really is. I’ve found myself constantly out of juice before getting ready to hit the pillow, even on days when the phone’s only been used moderately.

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Even without a headphone jack, the iPhone 7 is still one of the finest-sounding smartphones you can buy...

Premium build ; Fast performance ; More vibrant colours ; Good camera ; Refined, rhythmic sound

No headphone jack is inconvenient ; Bundled EarPods are average ; Battery life still needs work

The lack of headphone jack will grab the headlines, but this phone makes all round improvements on its predecessor – including its sound

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Updated with our thoughts on the new Product (RED) version

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

Apple iPhone 7 review: Refining the design rather than ripping it up and starting again

 

So Tim Cook is right: the iPhone 7 is is the company's best iPhone yet. It's just that the best is only slighter better than what we've already had

Refined design and new finishes make for best-looking iPhone to date ; Great camera with image stabilisation ; IOS 10 makes for the most in-depth use yet ; New Home button works brilliantly

More like an S version of the iPhone 6S than a total overhaul ; Still no wireless charging ; No dual cameras feature here ; No true battery improvement ; No headphone jack will irk some

The iPhone 7 is not the overhaul that Apple usually presents us with every two years, but there is enough here to keep those upgrading from the iPhone 6 happy.

iPhone 7 review

 

Looking for a cheap iPhone? The iPhone 7 is the best option

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

Lacks clear upgrades ; Same design for last 3 phones ; Battery life unimpressive

The iPhone 7 offered a slightly longer battery life, a better camera, fast innards and protection against water over its predecessor. While it may not be the top dog in the iPhone paddock, its lower price still makes it an attractive option.

iPhone 7 review

 

Is the iPhone 7 a case of Emperor's new clothes, or a genuinely great phone? Read our iPhone 7 review to find out.

The iPhone 7 is an evolution of the 6S, so if you were expecting a revolution you’ll probably be slightly disappointed. However, aside from the underwhelming battery life, it is an excellent phone. It’s waterproof, has fantastic cameras and...

Apple iPhone 7 review

 

Curved wraparound screen? Nope. Wireless charging? Not yet. Are you bothered that the 2016 iPhone looks the same as its predecessor? If you are, I understand the feeling. The iPhone 7 ( £549.00 at Apple ) doesn't feel like the "whole new thing." Does...

Improved front and rear cameras -- now with optical image stabilization -- deliver much improved photos, especially in low light. Water resistant. A faster processor, plus slightly better battery life. More onboard storage than last year's models for...

No headphone jack (but there's a dongle and compatible wired headphones in the box). Click-free home button takes getting used to. Only the larger 7 Plus has the cool dual camera. Shiny jet-black version scratches easily.

The iPhone 7's notable camera, battery and water resistance improvements are worthwhile upgrades to a familiar phone design. But ask yourself if you really need an upgrade... and if the Plus might be a better choice.

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..
