Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus

Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus offers a familiar 5.5-inch display and marked design changes, iPhone 7 Plus full review in 2021 both good and bad. It launched a new home button pad, a waterproof design, and no headphone jack. Its portrait photos are big selling points, as is its price next to the newer iPhone XS and iPhone 8.

Superficially, the 5.5-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 screen looks just like last year’s model. While Apple says it’s 25 percent brighter and displays better colors, side-by-side, I just can’t see the difference in under and standard-use circumstances. The screen also still pales (often literally) against the rich color and precise text on Samsung’s latest AMOLED displays.

iphone 7 plus features

The iPhone 7 Plus is now the cheapest large-screen iPhone that Apple still sells, so it remains a popular choice despite being replaced twice over by the iPhone 8 Plus and then the even bigger display of the modern Apple flagships, culminating in the latest iPhone 12. It’s also been heavily discounted since it launched, making the iPhone 7 Plus one of the most affordable Apple phones to run the latest iOS 14. It’s even cheaper during,

But it’s missing something significant: a 3.5mm headphone jack. The iPhone 7 series was the first without this standard way of plugging in headphones. Apple AirPods did come along to help alleviate this problem, at least to some degree.

Why do we recommend the iPhone 7 Plus over the standard iPhone 7? Two reasons are other than the bigger screen size: improved battery life and an innovative camera.

The battery is always going to be better on a bigger phone, given the larger capacity, but the camera was a surprise at launch. Apple added a dual-lens camera, a conscious effort to make the iPhone 7 Plus a distinctly different choice.

The 7 Plus is the better of the two 2016 iPhones, even if it hasn’t moved in leaps and bounds from the overall iPhone 6S Plus look, and it’s cheaper than the iPhone XR if you’re on a budget. Make sure to compare prices with the new iPhone SE 2020, which is physically identical but has a far more current chipset (and thus will get iOS updates for years longer).

iPhone 7 plus Design

 iPhone 7 plus Design
  • Water resistance is genuinely useful
  • Lack of a headphone jack is initially frustrating
  • More of the same design, with the same look as predecessors

It’s easy to tell the iPhone 7 Plus apart from its predecessors, as it’s the only iPhone to sport two cameras on its rear.

Aside from the bulkier camera block, lack of a headphone port (more on that in a minute), and a couple of new colors though, Apple’s stuck with exactly the same design that’s served it well for its previous two iPhone iterations.

If you’ve owned, or are familiar with, the iPhone 6 Plus or 6S Plus then you’ll know exactly what the iPhone 7 Plus looks like.

The rounded corners, aluminum frame and minimalist styling means the iPhone 7 Plus retains its premium status, and with the introduction of new black and ‘jet black’ colors, fans have two new ways to show their dark side.

More recently, Apple introduced a special edition red version of the iPhone 7 Plus (and iPhone 7) in partnership with the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS programs and help deliver an AIDS-free generation – though only the black, silver, gold and rose gold shades are still sold directly from Apple.
