This smartphone's body is made from metal and has rounded corners.

The iPhone 7 Plus is splash, water, and dust resistant with an IP67 rating that allows the phone to be submerged in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.

Like the Iphone 7, the Home button on the Iphone 7 Plus is not a pressable button but a pressure-sensitive button. This button is equipped with Apple’s Taptic engine that uses haptic feedback to give the illusion of a button press. The button also has a fast fingerprint sensor that enhances user security. The antenna lines have also been re-positioned closer to the top and bottom instead of running along the back of the phone like its predecessors.

Processor and OS

The iPhone 7 Plus is powered by a quad-core Apple A10 Fusion processor with four-cores and a processing speed of of 2.23 GHz which is slightly higher than average for a phone’s CPU. This makes this smartphone fast and responsive while handling apps and multitasking. The iPhone 7 Plus has 3GB of RAM which is higher than the 2GB RAM of the Iphone 7. This addition in RAM is mainly to assist with photo processing since the dual camera setup will capture more data than a single lens camera. 

It also comes in three different variants based on storage options, these are variants with either an Internal memory storage of 32GB, 128GB or 256GB.  Each of these variants cannot be expanded via microSD card. All the same, this storage without support for expansion may still be enough for storing an average smartphone user's files regardless of which variant they opt for. 

The Iphone 7 Plus also runs on Apple's new iOS 10 which comes with several features that work best on the new iPhone. Some of the features of this operating system which makes for a user friendly Interface Include: a new lock screen with 3D Touch notifications that enables users to reply messages and accept calendar invites without unlocking the device first and a raise-to-wake feature which awakes the phone when it is picked or pulled out of a pocket. This OS also features an intelligent sonos style Siri speaker that answer users queries.


The Apple iPhone 7 Plus features a 12MP dual back cameras, where one camera has a 28mm wide-angle lens with ƒ/1.8 aperture, while the other has a 56mm telephoto lens with ƒ/2.8 aperture. With these two lenses, the iPhone 7 Plus captures two images, one with the wide-angle lens and another with the telephoto lens. Then, the data from both images is fused to create a single photo.

For 2x optical zoom, one can switch from the wide angle lens to the telephoto lens using the camera app. This retains image quality while zooming to get tiny details, but images will lose their quality if zoomed beyond 2x as the system reverts back to a digital zoom. Zooming also works when filming videos, but only at 2x optical and 6x digital magnifications.

Other features of these cameras include digital zoom up to 10x, optical image stabilization, Quad-LED True Tone flash, and Live Photos. The TrueTone flash has two extra LEDs to provide sufficient light while capturing in dark places and the optical Image stabilization helps in taking excellent photos without blurs even while in motion. This optical Image stabilzation feature is only present on the wide-angle lens. The iPhone 7 Plus also sport a 7MP HD front camera with retina flash for capturing selfies. 

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of the iPhone 7 Plus is 2900mAh, the battery is based on LI-on technology and is non-removable. The battery at that capacity should last for a full day on a single charge and heavy usage. Apple claims that the battery improvements of the iPhone 7 Plus can give 1 hour life over the iPhone 6S Plus. Also, its A10 Fusion chip which has two low-power cores and two high-power cores can give the the iPhone 7 Plus  a long battery life. While the two low-power cores handle basic tasks that consume less power, the two high-power cores functions when a game or an HD movie is played.

Like the Iphone 7, the standard 3.5mm headphone jack is also absent on the Iphone 7 Plus. This means that one cannot charge their phones and listen to music via wired headphones simultaneously since there's only one port that accommodates one at a time. The iPhone 7 Plus is also a single SIM smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Other connectivity options on this device include bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 4G. Its sensors include proximity, ambient light, accelerometer, and gyroscope sensors.
