Apple iPhone 7 and 7 plus review.
After the iPhone 6 series Apple is back with the new iPhone 7 and 7 plus. With bigger battery, dual camera, better display and no headphone jack.
The iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch Retina HD Display with 3D Touch, A-10 Fusion quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB, 128GB and 256GB Storage options, 12-MP camera with f/1.8 and OIS, 7MP front camera, 1960 mAh battery, iOS 10 and 128.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm in dimension.

Both the phones have LTE, Wi-Fiac, NFC, IR, Bluetooth 4.2, Lightning and GPS.
Buid and Design
The iPhone 7 and 7 plus has an aluminium unibody with curved edges and 2.5D glass that make it easy to hold the phone, while also providing a much nicer experience when swiping from the side of the display. It isn’t just standard aluminium like the material used by its competitors either – the iPhone 7 features 7000 Series aluminium, making the iPhone much more durable without adding much weight and adding more of a premium feel to the device.
The Touch ID fingerprint scanner under the home button is the same as that on the iPhone 6 series. It is fast and accurate. However the home button is no longer a physical button.
It has been replaced by a pressure sensitive pad. Pushing it activates the taptic engine, giving a little vibration that feels like the whole bottom half of the phone depresses like a big mouse button.
The taptic engine is one of the best features of the iPhone. It is genuinely the best thing Apple has created in years.
Price and Availability
A set of Lightning EarPods are included in the box, which can’t be plugged into anything else other than an iPhone or iPad. A Rs 650 ($10) 3.5mm Lightning adapter is also included, which is easy to lose.
Even though there is no headphone jack, you can buy Apple’s forthcoming AirPods to go with the phone. It’s a Rs 10000 ($159) pair of wireless earbuds.
Two new colours are available Black and Jet Black. The iPhone 7 price starts at Rs 45000 ($670),iPhone 7 Plus price starts at Rs 55000 ($810).
