SPECIFICATION REVIEWS NEWS QUESTIONS PICTURES
The latest Phablette Apple takes the familiar formula of the iPhone and changes it again. It will not surprise you with a new design or massive innovations, but the iPhone 7 Plus is an exceptional phone. It has everything the iPhone 7 can do: fast performance, water resistance, speakers, high-quality cameras, but it adds smart features that are often more important than eye-catching ones.
On the other hand, the 7 Plus costs a small fortune. The weakened pound means it’s the most expensive iPhone we’ve seen in the UK. However, if it is configured as dead on an iPhone, I recommend it, especially since the autonomy of the iPhone 7 Plus is excellent.

Apple IPhone 7 Plus Details
iPhone 7 Plus – Design
The shape and feel of the iPhone 7 Plus is very similar to the two previous versions. It’s big, big enough, especially if you add a box.
Yes, it has a big screen, but it’s the height of the iPhone 7 Plus that makes it a handful.
If you’ve never used phablette before, you should try it first. I found out that it takes about a week to get used to a bigger phone, but I will not come back. There is much more to do with a screen of this size, but some will have problems using it easily. In other aspects, the design has been a little bit refined. The antenna strips securing the back are now bent over the top and bottom of the phone. In the back there is a much stronger camera setting.
There are two new colors of the iPhone 7 Plus to choose from and both feel very different. The first is Jet Black, which feels slippery, almost ceramic. It looks fantastic, has a good grip and is the color you choose. However, there are some shots: you need to polish it regularly to remove fingerprints, but the most worrying thing is that it scores too easily with small scratches. If you choose it, you have to treat it with gloves for the kids to make it better.
iPhone 7 Plus – screen and speakers
The Full HD resolution now looks like an old hat. Many cell phones from Samsung, LG and others have been packing ultra-high resolution Quad HD displays for years. The iPhone 7 Plus does not follow the same style and corresponds to what Apple calls the “Retina” screen. It just means that you can not see the pixels, but the pixel density is not as high as for example the Samsung Galaxy S7.
I do not care about a jota. It’s my favorite screen on any phone, regardless of the resolution.
Full HD is still pretty clear for anything that excludes virtual reality, where the screen is just an inch from your eyes and zoomed in with lenses.
The iPhone 7 Plus screen may not have the highest resolution, but it has the widest selection of colors. It uses something called DCI P3, a set of colors that are used by filmmakers and cover a wider range, allowing for more realistic and diverse sounds.
Apple jumps on the double-camera move
Apple has completely renewed the image features of the new iPhone 7 Plus. Like its smaller counterpart, Plus shares the updated 12MP sensor, which is 60% faster and 30% more efficient by opening f / 1.8 brighter, which should allow 50% more light, the new six lenses, and optical image stabilization.
Apple has posted its best innovation for the Plus model. On the back, next to the standard 12MP camera, is a new 12 MP sensor with a brand new telephoto lens that Apple uses for portrait grips. In fact, it is a 56mm 1: 2.8 lens that is twice as narrow in field of view and about 1 times slower than the main 28mm 1: 1.8 lens. This means that the main camera is about 2.3 times more light than the telephoto lens, which is very important for low-light shots. There are also improvements to the front camera with a new 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera, a healthy 5MP hit from yesterday. The Snapper Selfie is powered by Apple’s award-winning Retina Flash, as they call it: it shows the screen like an environmental flash.
Live photos are available as before; If you activate them, these 3 small videos are automatically captured and the novelty of them is that they are now stabilized, so they are softer.
The interface of the camera is the same as before. When you touch the focus, you can use the phone to control the exposure with a slider. This allows you to easily adjust the exposure compensation
