Apple iPhone 7 Plus is the successor to the iPhone 6S Plus. The phone is a huge upgrade over the previous flagship phones. This is one of the best smartphones available in the market with one of the best cameras out there.
The design of iPhone 7 Plus is a lot like the previous iPhone. The home button is placed on the same place, the rounded corners are the same, the position of all the physical buttons are same. The home button is not physical anymore. It is a touch sensitive button now which gives haptic feedback when you touch it. The haptic feedback takes some time to get used to.
The back has a dual camera placed at the top left corner of the phone. There is no headphone jack on it which makes it a little weird but that’s the future.
The iPhone 7 Plus has a Dual 12 MP camera which is, without any doubt, one of the best cameras available in the market. It captures amazing photos with astonishing color accuracy and it also has a 2X optical zoom. The second lens of the camera does the zoom magic and also helps in capturing more colors.
The video quality is also one of the best in any smartphone. The front camera is a 7 MP, f/2.2 unit which takes amazing photos. The front camera is also capable of recording 720p@240fps slo-mo videos.
The Apple iPhone 7 Plus comes with an Apple A10 Fusion chipset with Quad-core 2.34 GHz (2x Hurricane + 2x Zephyr) CPU and PowerVR Series7XT Plus (six-core graphics) GPU. It has 2 GB of RAM but the limited amount of RAM never affects the performance of iOS devices.
You can open as many apps as you want on this phone without worrying about the RAM being full. You will not feel any kind of RAM on any kind of multitasking. Gaming performance on this device is probably the best. The graphics and framerate are excellent no matter how heavy the game is.
