Apple iPhone 7 Gsmarena Review, Specifications and Price in Nigeria: Recently released by the Californian based tech giant, Apple are the IPhone 7 and IPhone 7 Plus as predecessors to the Iphone 6S which was released late last year. As it's Apple's pattern to release ungraded versions of their smartphones in a year's interval, the release of these wave making smartphones came with that trend. Between these two premuim devices, the IPhone 7 is the lowly speced and less expensive variant of the duo.

Overview Features

The iPhone 7 features a similar design to the iPhone 6 and comes with several new features to enhance user experience. Some of these features Include: 
  • Upgraded processor.
  • More memory storage.
  • Pressure sensitive home button.
  • No headphone jack.
  • Improved water resistance.
  • Faster LTE.

Display and Build

Apple iPhone 7 features a 4.7 inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels and pixel density of 326PPI. This display is 25 percent brighter than that of the 6S and colors are vibrant with improved contrast. The plastic antenna lines at the back which allow radio signals to pass through the metal casing have been re-positioned on this new model of the Iphone. They now curve around the corners of the phone.

Having a dimension of 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm which is almost similar to that of the 6S, the iPhone 7 has maintained an ultra slim body. Its body with rounded edges is made from aluminium, has a light weight of 138g and comes in different colour options of silver, gold, rose gold, black and Jet black. The iPhone 7 is water and dust resistant with an IP67 rating. At that rating, users of this device can immerse this smartphone in up to 1 meter of water for about 30 minutes.  

The Iphone 7 has a stationary pressure sensitive home button that has been redesigned from the conventional home button found on its predecessors. This button works with force touch technology that uses haptic feedback to give users the illusion that it's clicking by simulating the sensation of a button press. Below the phone is a front-facing speaker and a downward-facing speaker. This results in a better audio experience while playing multimedia without connecting headphones. 

Processor and OS

The iPhone 7 runs on a 64-bit A10 SOC processor with 3.3 billion transistors and four cores. Two cores of the processor are 40% faster than the A9 SOC on the Iphone 6, while two cores consume one-fifth as much power as the A9 SOC.  Users of this device should expect an improved level of performance, battery life and faster processing speeds during operations. According to Apple, "Graphics performance is also more powerful, running up to three times faster than iPhone 6, at as little as half the power, enabling a new level of gaming and professional app."  

The iPhone 7 has 2GB of RAM and comes in three variants based on storage options. These are variants with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB internal memory storage respectively. The iPhone 7 with Jet black color is only available in 128GB and 256GB variants. Each of these storages is twice as large as the one on the Iphone 6 and whichever variant one opts for, the internal memory storage is quite large to support the storage of a large number of files, apps and games.

The iPhone 7 also runs on iOS 10, a new operating system that protects against an iPhone threat called, Trident.  This OS is not only unique to the Iphone 7 as it is sent as updates directly to end users. Some features of this OS include an improved Apple music experience, improved notification system that allows users to respond to messages right from the notification screen, a new message app that now supports its own app store, a new lock screen, redesigned widgets and a new photo app.

Camera

The iPhone 7 has a 12MP iSight back camera with 6 element lens, and an f/1.8 aperture. This camera lets 50% more light onto the sensor, can capture images 60% faster and is 30% more energy efficient than the the rear camera of the iPhone 6S. It is supported by a Quad-LED True Tone flash with 4 LEDs to improve brightness in low-light photography. Its Optical Image Stabilization feature allows users to capture clear pictures even when the device is in motion. 

The iPhone 7 also features a 7MP front camera. Both cameras are capable of recording videos in 4K quality and capturing excellent photos, making the Iphone 7 a good choice for the photography enthusiast. They have also been designed to take advantage of the display's wide colour gamut, allowing brighter images to be captured and zoomed up to 10x on a shot without affecting the image's quality.

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of the Iphone 7 is 1960mAh and this battey is non-removable. According to Apple, the iPhone 7's battery can last up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 6S. The battery can support talk time up to 14 hours on 3G, internet use upto 12 hours on 3G and 14 hours on Wi-Fi, and standby time up to 10 days. Sensors on this device include fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer sensors.

The Iphone 7 does not have a standard 3.5mm audio jack that usually takes up a lot of space inside the device. The space is used for more features like the haptic motor for the touch-sensitive home button, better water resistivity and better cameras. The absence of this audio jack means that one cannot listen to music through a wired headset while also charging their phone, not unless they switch to wireless headsets. Only standard headphones with a 3.5mm plug can be connected to the phone using the port provided for the charger.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

The Iphone 7 has a battery capacity that is larger than that of its predecessors, but in reality, user experience is largely unchanged. With all its great specs, a device of this kind is expected to come with atleast a 3000mAh battery, but that is not the case on the Iphone 7. A full's day use is not what users should expect since the battery life is not long. One cannot just sit back and enjoy the features of this device to its fullest because of this downside.

Also, the Iphone 7 has a similar design to the Iphone 6 and one can hardly tell the two phones apart even though they have slight differences. For those who have used the Iphone 6 already, this might feel like another old device with no major changes in design. I for one would not ungrade to a phone that looks almost like the one I'm using now. Recently, It has been reported that the Iphone 7 produces a hissing sound with suggestions that the sound might be caused by radio interference with the speakers or coil whine. For those that are more interested in a device that offers a higher level of performance, these should not be a concern. 

Looking at some of the highlights of the Iphone 7 like its water and dust resistivity, great cameras, improved operating system and hardware, the Iphone 7 is a remarkable smartphone. But for the price it is being offered, I think there's nothing special to the Iphone 7. Users deserve every single feature this device has to offer and even lots more. I would definitely be awed if a phone with these same specs and features was offered for half the price of the Iphone 7.
