  • Water resistant: For years Apple had stayed away from this feature, however, the new apple iPhone is water resistant, NOT waterproof, though. There are claims that the phone is able to tolerate only a limited amount of water. This is one of three most notable features of this cool new phone. However, some people are complaining that after using the phone underwater, the speakers do not work properly for a little while. If that’s true then it’s a cause for concern.
  • More storage features: Apple has come a really long way with its storage features. The cheapest option starts at 32 GB instead of 18 GB as it did in previous models. With storage issues erupting in previous versions, it is plausible to think that this new iPhone will for once and for all suffice to our storage needs.
  • Chic and irresistible design: Apple phones are known to impart class and iPhone 7 is no exception. The new iPhone looks and feels amazing, comes in a number of matte and metallic options and is suited for every gender and age. It is also unisex and black and white iPhones can be used by both genders easily.

The minus:

  • Where’s jack? So the apparent lack of headphone jack has deemed a bit uncomfortable and inconvenient for a lot of users, especially ones who fearing they would lose the headphones.
  • Longer charge needed: compared to its rivals, iPhone 7 takes a considerably longer time to charge fully, however, the battery life is phenomenal so this pitfall can be overlooked.


Overall, the new iPhone 7 looks pretty great and has already taken the world by storm. The sheer look and feel of the phone have captivated people, its superb camera quality and longer battery life has enthralled them and while it has certain issues such as the jack lack and a longer need for a charge, it is overall a great phone. From its predecessors, iPhone 7 is a long leap forward, not so much externally but a great amount internally. The new A9 processor is stunningly superior and is among the top most processors on the market. The storage and graphics are much better allowing you to utilize more space than ever before. It is one of the most awaited phones and for the right reasons. If you’re wondering whether to get it, then go for it, it’s what you have been waiting for!
